Fashion illustration of the day (a blue dress) / Modna ilustracija dana (plava haljina)

Hello there! How was your day? Mine was alright and I'm finishing it off by sharing this fashion illustration with you. I didn't use any reference, neither for the dress, nor for the girl I illustration. However, now that I'm looking at it, it makes me think of Yasmin from Aladdin (you probably saw that Disney classic, right?). It must be because of the long hair.... or is it because the outfit she wore was blue? Speaking of which, what is your favourite Disney classic? I think I will have to say Frozen. It is the last one I saw and I liked how the emphasis was placed on sisterly love. But I don't think I will watch the sequels. I don't want to be disappointed.

Zdravo svima! Kako vam je prošao dan? Moj nije bio loš, a završavam ga tako što ću podijelit ovu modnu ilustraciju sa vama. Nisam slikala prema nekom podlošku. Niti za haljinu, niti za djevojku nisam koristila nikakav predložak. No, sada kada je gledam, pomalo me podsjeća na Jasmin iz Aladina (vjerovatno ste gledali taj Disneyjev klasik, zar ne?). Valjda zbog duge kose ili zato što je i ona nosila plavu odjevnu kombinaciju. Kada smo već kod te teme, koji je vama najdraži Disneyjev klasik? Mislim da ću ja reći Snježno kraljevstvo. To je zadnji koji sam gledala i svidio mi se taj naglasak na sestrinsku ljubav. No, mislim da neću gledati nastavke. Ne bi se htjela razočarati.

Another thing this illustration makes me think of (and perhaps that was the true inspiration behind it) is one poem I read a long time ago. I think it may have been written by Pablo Neruda, but I can't tell for sure because I can't recall its title. Long hair is an interesting subject.  In Tolkien's mythology, the long hair of elf princesses has magic properties, so there is where a part of inspiration might have come from. Who can tell for sure? 


Još jedna stvar na koju me ova ilustracija podsjeća ( a možda je i to bio pravi izvor nadahnuća) je jedna pjesma koju sam davno pročitala. Mislim da ju je napisao Pablo Neruda, ali nisam sigurna jer se ne mogu sjetiti njenoga naslova. Duga kosa je zanimljiva tema. U Tolkinovoj mitologiji, duga kosa vilinskih princeza ima čarobne moći, pa je možda i od tuda došla inspiracija. Tko bi znao?

The dress I illustrated is a midi dress with one sleeve. Asymmetrical sleeves are rather trendy right now. The top part of the dress is sheer. Or perhaps it is a sheer blouse and a skirt---who can tell?  At any rate, this is a look more suitable for Spring and Summer. I still maintain it is not too early to think about that. The medium is watercolour on paper. Thank you for reading. Have a lovely day everyone!

Haljina koju sam naslikala je midi haljini s jednim rukavom. Asimetrični rukavi su sada poprilično u trendu. Gornji dio haljine je proziran. Ili je možda u pitanju prozirna bluza i suknja---tko zna? U svakom slučaju, ova je kombinacija prikladnija za proljeće ili ljeto. Još uvijek mislim da nije prerano da o tome razmišljamo. Medij su vodene boje na papiru. Hvala na čitanju. Ugodan dan svima želim!

  1. I mene je ilustracija odmah podsjetila na Jasmin iz Aladina, definitivno zbog kombinacije kose i odjeće, a i to mi je apsolutno jedan od najdražih Disneyjevih klasika, rastopim se svaki put :) Meni je dan bio divan, čitavo jutro sam bila vani s najboljom frendicom i baš smo se pošteno napričale i onda sam se nastavila družiti s obitelji kroz popodne i večer, baš sam nekako puna pozitivne energije! :) Želim ti sjajan tjedan!

    1. da, recimo da je ovo moja verzija Jasmin. Aladin je divan klasik, a sviđaju mi se i novi Disneyjevi filmovi.

      Drago mi je čuti da je pozitivna energija prisutna:)

  3. Oh yes I can see the similarity to Aladdin, it does remind me of that on first glance! :)

    Little Mermaid will always be my favorite Disney movie! :)

  14. Stvarno je čarobna! <3 Podseća na Jasmin stvarno, a ona je ujedno meni i najdraža Disney princeza, mada Ana (Frozen) mi je možda novi favorit :) Ma sve ih volim zapravo, a Jasmin i Aladina posebno zbog Orijenta koji me je oduvek jako, jako privlačio :)

  24. Long hair has always been an inspiration - even in Mythology - a story of Samson and Dalila. Blue one sholder dress is a lovely idea. Greetings - Margot :)

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.
