Inspired by....Nadahnuta s........

At the moment, I'm fighting between my desire to sleep and my desire to blog. I'm sure you fellow bloggers understand me. It doesn't help that I stayed up late sewing last night. My desire to blog has won over! Who needs sleep? Pfff! I'm just kidding, naturally. I wish I was one of those people that can cope well with a lack of sleep but I look ghastly if I don't get enough sleep. More importantly, I don't feel like myself. Yet sometimes we must go where inspiration takes us even if that means zombi mode the next day. What was I going to say? You see, even my eloquence has suddenly abandoned me. So, let's take it lightly this evening. It's time for one of my favourite features on this blog and that is Inspired by. I'm very happy because I managed to keep this feature on my blog for so long. If you're not familiar with it, it's pretty simple. In this feature I post my paintings of bloggers that inspired me. This time I'm posting six paintings! I actually made all of them one night...(it was a late night). If you follow me on instagram (@modaodaradosti) you had already seen them. Without furtherado, the bloggers that inspired me this time are: Lera ( visit her site here), Matea (here), Ivana (here), Mihaela (here) and Agata (here).  

U ovom trenutku, borim se između želje za spavanjem i želje za bavljenjem blogom. Sigurna sam da me kolege blogeri razumiju. Ne pomaže ni to što sam jučer do kasno šivala. No, moja želja za pisanjem pobjeđuje. Jeee! Kome treba san? Ma da! Dobro, samo se šalim. Ja sam barem jedna od onih koji mogu bez sna, ali grozno izgledam kada se ne naspavam, a još gore nisam sva svoja. No, nekad moramo slijediti inspiraciju čak i ako to znači da ćemo idući dan biti pomalo zombiji. Što sam htjela reći? Vidite, napustila me i elokvencija. Idemo lagano večeras. Vrijeme je za jednu od meni najdražih rubrika na ovome blogu, a to je Nadahnuta s. Volim ovu rubriku i sretna sam što sam je uspjela održati kroz duže vrijeme. Ako niste s njom upoznati zapravo je jako jednostavna. U ovoj rubrici objavljujem svoje slike blogerica koje su me nadahnule. Ovoga puta objavljujem šest slika! Sve sam ih naslikala jedne večeri (bila je to duga večer). Slijedite li me na instagramu (@modaodaradosti) već ste ih sve vidjeli. Tako da, blogerice koje su me nadahnule su Lera, Matea, Ivana, Mihaela i Agata (poveznice na njihove blogove u engleskom dijelu teksta i ispod samih slika pa skoknute do njihovih stranica i bacite oko).


  

MATEA


Matea inspired me with a casual outfit that not only looks incredibly comfy, but it is also stylish in an effortless way. Plus, those are the coolest jeans I've ever seen. Frida (that would be the dog) is the most adorable beagle EVER. I'm sorry I didn't manage to paint her well, I must give it another try. Who knew I couldn't paint dogs? Well, we live and learn, don't we?

                                                              MIHAELA

Mihaela. What can I say about Mihaela? She has this inborn elegance that makes everything she wears noteworthy. I suspect that her to be Audrey Hepburn reincarnated. This outfit totally blew me away when I saw it on lookbook. Mihaela, you look stunning with curls! This red jacket is such a statement piece and I just love how she paired it with this white skirt. Great fashion moment right there!

                                            LERA

Lera inspired me with a killer lipstick, a sweater dress that looks like it was made for her and a denim jacket that is absolutely amazing. Her hair looks fabulous, she looks fantastic..and how cute are those sunnies? The photography in this post is spectacular and the location is phenomenal. It is great to explore Chicago with her.  Mighty impressive post that was!!!! It is such a winning look, isn't it?

                                          AGATA

Agata makes green lipstick look fabulous. I mean who does that? She does, that's who. This street look is eye-catching but not over the top. It is badass but with a measure. I love the beanie, the croped top, the green bomber jacket...What more to say? Flawless styling choices. I love this girl!

                                                                        IVANA

Ivana looks utterly beautiful and flawlessly elegant in this white and blue styling. Very femininine and chic style choices. This blue jacket is so charming and so well paired with this lovely dress. Can we take a moment to appreciate the print on this dress? Isn't it fabulous. Special love for the matching blue shoes and bag. Stunning outfit and photography. Such a perfect look for Spring!

  13. I don't blame you for wanting to stay up late rather than sleeping - sewing the night away sounds pretty dreamy and tranquil! I'm also in the same situation though now running on very low energy haha. Once again, your illustrations are wonderful to look through - and I think the shot of the woman photographing something with her camera is my favourites piece of your artworks so far! :)

  16. Vidim da sam svašta propustila ali se bacam na čitanje čim ugrabim vremena. Htela sam samo da te pozdravim i eto, ne mogu čudom da se načudim kako si uspela da sve uradiš za jedno veče. ilustracije su san snova, zaista. Glupo mi je više da se ponavljam ali svaka ti čast! Ova rubrika zaista zaslužuje posebnu pažnju <3 :)

    1. nastojim crtati svaki dan, ali često to ispadne tako da uhvatim vremena samo onaj sat prije spavanja...ali bolje ikad nego nikad. Vjerujem u ono što je Picasso rekao, nadahnuće postoji ali nas mora pronaći dok radimo. Hvala ti puno!

  18. Such fun illustrations here Ivana, great job! I could tell Lera's photo too! :) I used to stay up forever to get things done, but lack of sleep actually hurts me, and it's healthier for me to get rest. Now, I choose rest, so I can be more productive afterwards. I am finally well-rested after a holiday so I can actually catch up with blogs now. Happy weekend. :)

    1. In Croatian language we call it akvarel, but I must admit I don't see these works of mine as aquarelles even if they are painted with watercolours...maybe because I used pencil to sketch them.... I'm very happy you liked yours!

  27. Hey Ivana, I can see that you're in the same situation than me :D, well, obviously I'm happy to know it because it means that we're on the same channel and there are more people fighting for what they love!

    As you I'm always trying to do an extra effort, I love to sleep but I also love blogging, create content and visit other places for inspiration (like your site, I really like your brushes, the textures and the feelings you can put in every piece of paper). I just encourage you to push up and to keep on the track, 'cause they say there is always a reward at the end of every track!

    Now talking about the women who inspires you... they look really catchy and there is something about them that really move me inside, I'm happy that you decided to put your inspiration down in paper :) You're definitely an artist!

    Who inspires me lately? I don't know, maybe Sincerely Jules, she's a Mexican blogger and I really like her attitude ;)

    Have a lovely weekend, Ivana!

  29. These illustrations are beautiful! I can't believe you did them all in one night. You must have amazing energy as well as talent. When I'm tired and faced with choosing between sleeping or doing something fun I usually choose sleep. Or at least my body makes me sleep. I'd love to be able to sleep less and create more. Beautiful work!

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…
