How to be Parisian Wherever you are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits (book review) Kako biti Parižanka u bilo kojoj prilici (ogled knjige)

How to be Parisian Wherever you are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits is a charming little book. In many ways it reminded me of Garance Dore's bestseller that I already reviewed here on this little place of mine. I'm not saying that Love x Style x Life plagiarized this one, but there are certainly many similarities between the two, even in the terms of graphic design and font choices for this book. I can't say that it bothered me, but I couldn't help noticing. That's just modern design- one might say. I'm not saying that isn't so, all I'm saying is that I noticed a striking similarity. However, I did like this book- I read it in a heartbeat.
Filled with gorgeous illustrations and photographs, tasty recipes, tips on being chic, and chit chat about Paris , it is a pretty cute book for sure. Most of all, it seems to be a book about what it is like to be a woman in Paris.
I don't mind reading about what it is like to be a women in Paris. If you don't eith…

Summer is here! (drawing of the day + reading recommendation) / Ljeto je tu! (crtež dana +preporuka za čitanje)!

Today's fashion illustration is that- of a swimsuit! Very appropriate for this heat. What's your favourite thing about Summer? Is it eating ice-cream without a guilty conscience? That magical scent of Summer rain? Is it waking up ridiculously early, but instead of a cold darkness being greeted by a gentle dawn? Or is the way days tend to last longer, but still fly by so far? Is it the long evening walks? I know, I know...so many glorious things to choice from, who could name just one. 

Današnja modna ilustracija je - ona kupaćega kostima. Vrlo prikladno za ovu vrućinu. Koja je vama najdraža stvar kod ljeta? Jedenje sladoleda bez grižnje savjesti? Čarobni miris ljetne kiše? Buđenje smiješno rano ujutro, a umjesto hladne tame tamo čeka  nježna zora? Ili je to što se čini da dani traju dugo, a opet tako brzo prolete? Ili su to duge kasne šetnje? Znam, znam...toliko toga se može odabrati, tko bi odabrao samo jednu stvar. 






Summer. Wearing a one piece swimsuit as a top. Why not? Tim…

Nina Badrić u haljini Matije Vuice ( Fashion illustration of the day/ Modna ilustracija dana)

Time for another fashion illustration. Today we have a Croatian designer on agenda and her name is Matija Vuica. She was already featured on my blog here. Known primarily for her bold and dramatic designs, Vuica's been present on Croatian fashion scene for more than three decades. Here I illustrated a pink dress of hers, as worn by Nina Badrich. The medium is coloured pencils on paper.

Vrijeme je za još jednu modnu ilustraciju. Danas je na rasporedu hrvatska dizajnerica, naša Matija Vuica. Ona se već pojavila na blogu ovdje. Poznata najviše po svojim hrabrim i dramatičnim kreacijama, Vuica je prisutna na hrvatskoj modnoj sceni već više od tri desetljeća. Ovdje sam ilustrirala njenu rozu haljinu kako ju je nosila Nina Badrić.  Medij su bojice na papiru.

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…

Prabal Gurung Resort 2018 Collection (fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana)

To be completely honest,  until recently I had no idea who Prabal Garun was. It is quite possible that I saw his designs before (because he is favoured by many celebs and all that), but I haven't put the name and the dress together- if you know what I mean.  However, when I saw his Resort Collection featured in British Vogue, I just fall in love. This collection is so feminine and chic, but at the same time simple, timeless and non pretentious. All the designs from this collection look very sophisticated. Long story short, I loved it so much I had to do at least one illustration. The medium is pencil again, (or to be more precise it's colour pencils) on paper.
Da budem posve iskrena, do prije neki dan nisam imala pojma tko je Prabal Garun. Sasvim je moguće da sam vidjela njegove kreacije prije (jer ga zvijezde često nose i tako to), ali nekako nisam spojila ime i haljinu, ako znate na što mislim. No, kada sam vidjela njegovu Resort kolekciju za 2018 u Britanskom Vogue-u, jedno…

Vivianne Westwood, Spring 2017 'Ready to Wear Collection'--- Fashion illustration of the day/ Modna ilustracija dana

I love how this fashion illustration turned out. This time I illustrated an outfit from Vivianne Westwood's Spring 2017 Ready To Wear Collection. Who doesn't like Dame Vivianne Westwood? She is a true icon of British fashion. Among British designers, she has always been my personal favourite. So, I was really thrilled to draw this illustration. The medium is coloured pencils on paper. 

Sviđa mi se kako je ova modna ilustracija ispala. Ovoga puta sam ilustrirala kreaciju iz ovogodišnje proljetne kolekcije (spremne za nošenje) Vivianne Westwood. Tko ju je voli? Ona je prava ikona britanske mode. Među britanskim kreatorima, uvijek mi je bila najdraža. Tako da sam baš sa zadovoljstvom nacrtala ovu ilustraciju. Medij su bojice na papiru.

Inspired by.... Baba Luccia

Hi darlings! Time for another Inspired by post. Today I'm sharing with you a sketch (medium: markers on paper) inspired by Baba Luccia (visit her blog here). Lately I've been using markers more (ordinary ones, not copic ones) and I ended up liking it. I actually draw this illustration last Summer with pencil and misplaced it. Now, that I found it again, I decided to fill it in with markers.
Zdravo dragi! Vrijeme za još jednu objavu u Nadahnuta s rubrici. Danas sa vama dijelim skicu (medij: markeri na papiru)  nadahnutu s blogom Baba Luccia (posjetite ga ovdje). U zadnje vrijeme dosta koristim markere (obične, ne copic markere) i zasada mi se svidjelo. Zapravo sam naslikala ovu ilustraciju prošloga ljeta olovkom, a onda sam jeuzagubila. Sada, kada sam je ponovo pronašla, odlučila sam je popuniti markerima.
