Two Spring outfits. Both of them drawn with a pencil. One is depicting a girl wearing an off shoulder midi dress and the other one shows a girl wearing skinny jeans and a blouse with bell sleeves (ruffled bell sleeves to be more precise). What both of them have in common are ruffles. Do you like ruffles? Do you plan to wear this trend? I'm a big fan of the ruffle trend. Perhaps it is because deep inside I'm a hopeless romantic.

Dvije proljetne odjevne kombinacije. Obje nacrtane olovke. Jedna prikazuje djevojku koja nosi midi haljinu golih ramena, a druga djevojku koja nosi uske traperice i bluzu s širokim rukavima (zvonastim rukavima na volane da budem precizna). Ono što obje imaju zajedničko su volani. Volite li vi volane? Planirate li nositi ovaj trend? Veliki sam obožavatelj trenda volana. Možda zato što sam duboko u sebi veliki romantik.

  1. very creative

  2. Prześliczne rysunki! :)

  3. Hi Ivana! I really like both of your illustration and proposition to Spring's outfits - both of them are amazing. Personally, I've romantic soul too, so I'll wear as much ruffles as much I can this spring, I'm happy that they're trendy right now and I can see them everywhere. What about first outfit, the dress is terrific - in my opinion it's in haute coulture's style annd I'm pretty sure that it will look incredibly on runaway.
    Thank you for you comments, Ivana, especially for your last one below my the latest post - it means a lot to me! <3
    Take care, dear!

    1. thank you darling. I'm glad to meet a fellow romantic.

  4. Your sketches are so amazing as always.

  5. entrambi stupendi!!!
    buon venerdì, un bacione

  7. It's nice you're trying different mediums for your illustrations! I think this is the first time I've seen you using just pencil, you capture the ruffles well! :)

    Hope you're having a great end to the week with a lovely weekend ahead!

  8. These drawings are amazing, second is my fav!:)


  9. Super su mi obje ilustracije, mislim da je ona prva haljinica baš zanimljiva - ja sam je iz nekog razloga odmah zamislila u crvenoj boji - valjda mi je ljeto već lagano udarilo u glavu haha :D

  10. I love how your portrayed the movement of the first outfit :)

  11. Ja ih obožavam. Tako su romantični i efektni. Obe kombinacije su baš po mom ukusu i nešto što bih jako volela da imam u svom ormanu i nosim ovih dana :) Još jedan dokaz da ti i crteži olovkom jako dobro idu od ruke ;)

  12. I feel like there is such a contrast to these outfits/illustrations but there is also a good deal to similarity not just in terms of the ruffles but in the grace and movement you managed to capture in both. I'm definitely a fan of ruffles because they are so feminine. I've been wearing my new ruffled shoulder sweater non-stop lately.

  13. Great drawings :) I always like to draw with pencil - it's easier than doing the plain ink without any sketch.

  14. It took me forever to try floral dress and I think it'll take me even longer to finally try ruffles. LOL! I am always behind time.

  15. Gorgeous drawings babe! I love the statement bell sleeves... super chic! <3

    XO Jessi,

  16. Beautiful illustrations, dear Ivana! I would love to wear this amazing dress and of course I love ruffles ;-)

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
