Fashion illustration of the day (purple) / Modna ilustracija dana (ljubičasta)

Late Summer. Finally, I can sense the transition in the air, that sense of change that is so much more than just the fact of temperature starting to drop. The nature is starting to dance according to a new beat and everything is about to change. The air is beginning to cool down, epecially in the morning and in the evening. Still, the Summer lingers. Caught between the seasons feels like being caught up in some old memory, Hidding away from life in some old jazz bar, caught between the desire to act and to withdraw. Yet, what is life? Isn't it also memories and being wrapped up in our thoughts? Isn't it also a sense of change and uncertainty?

Kasno ljeto. Mogu konačno osjetiti promjenu u zraku, taj osjećaj promjene koji je puno više od samo pada temperature. Priroda počinje plesati na novi ritam i sve će se uskoro promijeniti. Zrak postaje hladniji, pogotovo ujutro i navečer. Ipak, ljeto je još uvijek tu. Uhvaćena između sezona, osjećam se kao da sam u nekom starom sjećanju. Skrivam se od života u nekom starom jazz baru, uhvaćena između želje za djelovanjem i povlačenjem. No, što je život? Zar nije i uspomene i izgubljenost u vlastitim mislima? Zar nije i osjećaj promjene i nesigurnosti?

  17. Ah the way you describe summer now is just so poetic and this illustration is beautifully done and presented with the colored pencil shavings. Summer does not seem to want to leave us in NYC just yet as we seem to be in the midst of another heatwave. I'm actually kind of happy about it :)

  22. Baš tako, život je i to. Ja prva ne mogu da pobegnem od vlastitih misli (ne znam da li iko može), a taj osećaj promene mi nekako uvek budi kako dobra, tako i loša osećanja. I ovde se oseća ta neka promena koja možda nije toliko vidljiva jer je leto baš steglo ovih dana, ali oseća se. Mnogo mi se sviđa kako si iskoristila parčiće od rezane olovke kao deo kreacije. Oduševljavaš me iznova i iznova :)

  23. Ideja da upotrebis ostatke od nasiljenih bojica kao komponentu sa ilustraciju haljine je odlicna! Vjerujem da bi haljina divno izgledala da je se sasije, stvarno si nevjerojatno kreativna i inovativna! :*

  25. Dear Ivana, today I am especially fascinated by these drawing - and particularly by your idea to use the "waste" from the pencil sharpener for decoration! Brilliant!
    Lots of hugs from Austria,

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
