Happy Valentine's Day! (fashion illustration of the day) / Sretno Valentinovo! (modna ilustracija dana)

Personally, I'm a fan of celebrations. Any kind of celebrations. Possibly because celebrations include food. As you can probably tell, I love to eat. I also love to cook. Supposedly, cooking burns a lot of calories. Well, at least I'm spending some of all those calories I consume on every day basis;). Yes, I tend to enjoy my food. This year Valentine's day was the perfect excuse for me to prepare all kinds of sweets and cakes. I'm not sure will I share them here, perhaps tomorrow. Today I'm sharing with you a fashion illustration that is inspired by this day. The girl depicted is wearing a red dress. What is more classic than a red dress for a Valentine's day?  How do you like this dress? The medium is watercolour on paper. 

How will I spend San Valentine's day? Not as planned. My romantic plans about a little getaway didn't work out but at least I still have all those cakes I prepared in advance. That should improve my mood. Plus, I stayed up to 4 a.m. last night reading Isaac Asimov. That will keep me happy for days.  So, what I'm trying to say is that I basically love Saint Valentine's day. Even when I don't celebrate it the ordinary way. What is the ordinary way anyway? I must say I don't get all this negativity about this day. I don't see why I should be obliged to boycott it (as many articles propose we should). Yes, love ought to be celebrated everyday, we all know that. But, isn't it is nice to have a special day just for it? If nothing else, then as an excuse to indulge in sweets. Happy Valentine's Day!

Osobno, ja volim proslave. Bilo kakve proslave. Možda jer proslave obično znače i hranu. Kao što vjerojatno možete i primijetiti, ja uživam u hrani. Volim i kuhati, pa barem tako sagorim nešto od onih kalorija koje unosim u organizam. Da, uživam u hrani. Ove godine za mene je Valentinovo bilo savršena izlika da pripremim svakakve kolače i deserte. Nisam sigurna hoću li ih ovdje podijeliti možda sutra. Danas sa vama dijelim modnu ilustraciju koja je nadahnuta ovim danom. Djevojka koju sam naslikala nosi crvenu haljinu. Što je klasičnije od crvene haljine za Valentinovo? Kako vam se sviđa ova haljina? Medij su vodene boje na papiru. Dodala sam i srca koja sigurno prepoznajete.


Kako ću ja provesti Valentinovo? Ne onako kako sam planirala. Moji romantički planovi o malom izletu su propali, ali barem još uvijek imam sve te kolače koje sam pripremila. To bi mi trebalo popraviti raspoloženje. Osim toga jučer sam do četiti ujutro čitala Isaaca Asimova i to će me vjerovatno držati sretnom danima. U biti ono što želim reči je da volim Valentinovo. Čak i kada ga ne slavim na uobičajen način. Što je uobičajen način ionako? Moram priznati da ne shvaćam negativnost oko ovoga dana. Ne shavaćam zašto bi ga trebala (kao što sve novine predlažu) bojkotirati?   Ljubav treba slaviti svakoga dana. Svi to znamo. No, što nedostaje tome da imamo jedan poseban dan za ljubav? Ako ništa drugo, imamo izliku da uživamo u slatkišima? Sretno Valentinovo!

  7. Like you,I love celebrations, Ivana. Always have and probably always will. It doesn't really matter what kind of celebration it is, it's the mood I love, everyone is in a special mood, trying to make good memories, you know what I mean. Anyway, love the illustration and that dress is perfect for Valentine. So happy Valentine, girl.

  9. Super je ilustracija, nema boljeg od crvene haljine za Valentinovo! :) Žao mi je čuti da je propao izlet, ali budete vi to nadoknadili čim proljeće dođe! Uživaj u kolačima, ja sam pretrpana poslom čitav tjedan tako da uopće ne doživljavam ovaj dan, pogotovo još jer nikada nisam imala taj romantični klik u glavi pa ga zapravo uvijek i preskačem :D

  11. I love how you describe loving all celebrations, I feel the same way! The world is full of so much negativity, that bringing attention to the fun events/celebrations can be a lovely way of counteracting that :) Beautiful red dress illustration; perfectly themed to Valentine's Day - as are the pretty red heart-shaped decorations!

  13. Dear Ivana, the girl and the red dress are so beautiful! Valenntine's day is a day that is very special to me, cause I remember when I was a little girl, and I have 2 brothers, not sisters, my dad always bought 2 presents - one for my mother and one for me, so that I wouldn't feel jealous or sad :) I loved to know that cooking burn calories - cause I love cooking, too! Glad to know that we burn some calories, at least, and then we eat :) Lovely post, dear Ivana, I hope you have a very sweet day today!

  14. Dear Ivana, so sorry your plan for the little getaway didn't work. But I'm convinced what you prepared instead is extremely yummy and I know by my own experience how happy it can make reads nearly until morning how you did.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

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…

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.

February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 








DIY PROJECTS 
I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
