Do it yourself / sam svoj majstor

Taking a little break from drawing to do a quick manicure because sometimes little things can mean  a lot. Besides, I like doing my own manicuras. DIY philosophy seems to be something I live by...In fact, the reason why my nails are shorter than usual because recently I've been devoting a large amount of my time to sewing, drawing and DIY projects. This outfit is pretty basic. I opted for it a few days ago when it was warm enough to wear short sleeves. I'm not ready for this sudden drop of temperature, but I can't complain because I did know that this freakish 'Summer weather in Autumn'  can't last forever. 

Uzimam malu pauzu od crtanja da bi napravila brzu manikuru jer ponekad takve sitnice puno znače.  Ja zapravo volim sama sređivati svoje nokte. Čini mi se da mi odgovara sam svoj majstor filozofija. Štoviše, nokti su mi kraći nego obično jer sam u zadnje vrijeme još više posvetila svoje vrijeme šivanju, crtanju i "sam svoj majstor" projektima. Odjevna kombinacija je jako jednostavna, a nosila sam je prije par dana kada je bilo dovoljno toplo za kratki rukav. Nisam spremna za ovaj nagli pad temperature, ali se ne mogu žaliti jer nije da nisam znala da to neobično ljeto tijekom jeseni ne može potrajati.

  2. Your nails remind me of mushrooms in fairy tales- the red spotty ones! You have nice nails. I have horrid ones!!
    The picture is beautiful too! Is that place near to Sibenik? I'm sure we stopped to take photos of a place like this!

  4. How fun that you turned your creativity to this manicure! I love the bright and happy colors you used and it complements your outfit perfectly. We're having a spot of summer-like weather in NYC at the moment and I'm trying to enjoy it before it gets back to fall temps again :)

  5. The question is though - does your nail polish last without chipping when you are also engaged in creative projects? Seems like it must do as it's looking pretty perfect here. Mine NEVER lasts, although I think it's mostly because I don't keep my hands still.

  7. Nokti su prekrasni kao i tvoj crtež. Kao male bubamare, samo sa zutim tackama. Lepo ti stoji crvena. I sama sam sam svoj majstor, posto me mrzi bilo gde ici i gubiti vreme sedeci po salonima :) Puse :*

  11. Ah the food addict in me says "kecthup and mustard" but the tiny, tasteful part of me says "how pretty those nails are". Very creative people are big on doing things themselves, or so I am told.

  16. I ja sama obavljam to pa i sve ostalo, jednostavno ne volim da idem u salone i slično, a i nekako mislim da sama znam najbolje šta i kako volim, plus je daleko isplativije, kreativnije, a i prava razbibriga :)
    Manikir je presladak, imaš jako lepe nokte. Divna je kombinacija boja i uopšte si svaki detalj divno uklopila i to baš na svakoj slici :)

  29. Your sketch looks really good Ivana, it must be lovely to have such a talent to draw! The mani is very sweet too, I tend to paint my nails in block colours though I've got to admit nail art has been appealing to me much more lately! :)

  34. I really like your nail decor, dear Ivana, it's simple and looks like perfect option for "those busy days", when you don't have enough time for anything :) What's more, you're so lucky with the weather in your country, because I bet that these photos were taken few days ago from now, but there is still sunny in your city. And believe me, I won't be against "summer weather in Autumn" at all, because I don't like these cold and rainy autumnal days at all, but unfortunately there're many of them in my country now. What's more, your sketch caught my eye, you're very talented,dear friend! :)

  35. Well, this answers my question from your most recent blog post. Of course, you sew! ;-) Cute nails. The design reminds me of ladybugs. My first credit card design ever had a big ladybug on it. DIY brings out the creativity in all of us, and it doesn't really matter if we are experts. My art teacher when I was in grade school scared me away from DIYs at first because she criticized how messy my work was. Thankfully, others saw the potential in me. I love your jewelry projects for sure!

    1. my grandmother always says that messiness if allowed when creative work is concern. If we compare mother nature with labaroties, we can see how creative nature is....and how wonderful chaos can be.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
