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

Hi! Today my illustrations are inspired by Tijana, from fashionabejita blog. Isn't she just a ray of sunshine in this yellow maxi dress? I love seeing yellow worn in Summer. It is like carrying sun with us. The medium is coloured pencil on paper. As you may have noticed, I've been drawing a lot lately. I miss painting, but one can say that I felt the need to come back to basics and that means doing more drawings and sketches. So, my fashion illustrations have become fashion drawings. I've also continuing my experimentation with using make up for painting and drawing. That means you can expect more make up paintings and illustrations in the future. I've been thinking of putting my outfit posts on hold and focusing only on publishing my art. What do you think? What would you prefer to see: outfits, illustrations or both?

Zdravo! Danas su moje ilustracije nadahnute Tijanom, s bloga fashionabejita. Zar nije kao zraka sunca u ovoj žutoj maksi haljini? Volim vidjeti žutu nošenu ljeti. To je kao da nosimo sunce sa nama. Medij su bojice na papiru. Kao što ste mogli primijetiti, puno crtam u zadnje vrijeme. Nedostaje mi slikanje, ali može se reći da sam imala potrebu vratiti se osnovama, a to znači više crtanja i skica. Tako da su moje modne ilustracije postale modni crteži. Uz to, nastavljam sa svojim eksperimentima korištenja šminke za crtanje i slikanje. To znači da možete očekivati još više slika sa šminkom i ilustracija u budućnosti. Razmišljala sam o tome da odgodim odjevne objave i da se usmjerim samo na objavljivanje mojih radova. Što mislite o tome? Što biste više voljeli vidjeti: odjevne kombinacije, ilustracije ili oboje?


  1. Beautiful and so vibrant - love the fresh colours and romantic vibe :)

  4. I agree - a ray of sunshine! Your illustrations of her are really great and I love how you've photographed them in dappled sunshine; it goes hand in hand with the style of your art :) As always, lovely work Ivana!

  16. Hvala ti još jednom! Uvek mi je neizmerno drago kad vidim sebe u tvojim ilustracijama i način na koji vidiš moje fotografije i odeću, a ovog puta možda čak i više jer je u pitanju naša voljena žuta boja i haljina koju sam najviše volela da nosim ovog leta. Ja se radujem svim objavama i čemu god da se odlučiš jer kada nekoga pratim i cenim kao osobu pre svega, sve me interesuje :)

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.

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…


When we talk about travelling outfits, comfort is definitely something we need to consider. Everyone wants to be comfortable when travelling, right? As much as visiting a certain town or resort can be fun and relaxing, the process of getting there might be a little stressful. Comfort is definitely important. However, the thing is that everyone has a different definition of comfort. Some ladies might feel perfectly comfortable in a dress, while others might prefer the typical jeans and tee outfit formula. Sure, it makes sense to follow some rules. Opting for practical and utility wear might make your life easier when travelling. Similarly, wearing breathable, comfortable and natural fabrics in summer makes sense. However, what if you have a fabulous polyester vintage item you're dying to wear? You know, if that vintage polyester item makes you feel good, wearing it probably makes sense.
When it comes to summer travel style, being reasonable and practical is important. However, oft…

Ljubuški (Sights to See, Places to Visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti)

What a lovely place this is!  Do you remember it? If you don't, don't worry because I'll leave you with two little reminders i.e. links to previous posts ( here and here).  Can you recognize it now? If you are a first time visitor, I don't mind repeating myself. This is Ljubuški, a small city in region of Herzegovina, country Bosnia and Herzegovina. These photographs were taken back in February but since the weather has been a bit on the chilly side lately, I don't feel weird about posting them now. I originally planned to post a book review to go along with this post, but I couldn't think of anything nice to say about the book in question, so I gave up. I reviewed it a long time ago on goodreads and all I can say after reading it again is that I feel the same way about it. The concept of this book is great but it is written so badly. End of story. How it managed to win an award for the best novel of the year is beyond me. Anyway, it hasn't been translated…
