Today I'm sharing two pencil drawings with you. For the first one I used a photograph from Matija Vuica's Instagram account (you can see it here) as a refrence. Matija Vuica is one of my favourite  Croatian fashion designers. If I had to explain why in one sentence, I would say because her designs are unique, dramatic, feminine and theatrical. The second drawing is a fashion illustration of one Croatian singer wearing one of Vuica's creations. That one I did in typical fashion illustration style, so for that one I didn't use a specific photo for a reference. I looked at photographs from that old campaign and I picked one dress I wanted to illustrate. That would be all for today. Have a lovely Sunday!

Danas sa vama dijelim dva crteža olovkom. Za prvi sam kao referencu koristila fotografiju s Instagram profila Matije Vuice (koju možete vidjeti ovdje). Matija Vuica mi je jedna od najdražih hrvatskih kreatorica. Kada bi morala objasniti zašto u jednoj rečenici, rekla bi da je to zato jer su njene kreacije jedinstvene, dramatične, ženstvene i teatrealne. Drugi crtež je modna ilustracija jedne hrvatske pjevačice koja je nosila jednu od Matijinih kreacija. Taj sam crtež nacrtala u nekom tipičnom stilu modnih ilustracija, tako da nisam koristila baš određenu fotografiju po kojoj bi crtala. Pogledala sam fotografije iz te stare kampanje i izabrala jednu haljinu koju sam htjela ilustrirati. To bi bilo sve za danas. Ugodan dan želim!

  5. Both illustrations retain much of the spirit of the inspirations you drew them from but they also have a good dose of your artistic spirit and personality. It's impressive the amount of detail you were able to create using just pencil.

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…
