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.

HOW TO STYLE A METALLIC DRESS FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…

EARLY SPRING OUTFIT FOR A DAY SPENT STROLLING THE MOSTAR CITY

Early Spring. The air itself smells of flowers in blossom. The sun is shining but it's not too warm. I love this time of year. I love to see the nature come alive and admire the almond trees in blossom. Early spring is possibly the best time to visit Mostar city. What can I say about Mostar that I haven't said already? It truly is a beautiful city, especially this time of year when it is so green. The most wonderful thing about Mostar is perhaps the river it is known for- river Neretva. Wonder the banks of Neretva river and you'll feel you'll entered a magical world. It is amazing to find such stunning natural beauty within a city. However, this city can boost of other rivers as well such as Radobolja. No wonder that it is known as the city of bridges. 
The outfit proposal I'm sharing today is fairly simple. I've taken to wearing hats lately, mostly because the sun here is so strong. Spring sun can be misleading. You may not feel the sun rays  as intensely bec…

HOW TO STYLE A BATH ROBE COAT FOR TRANSITIONAL WEATHER?

One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
