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!

    1. that is so sweet. Your dad was a wise man. Thanks for sharing! When I was little, my brother would always buy something for me and my mother for International Women's Day.

  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.

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…
