Fashion illustration of the day (flared sleeves and heels) / Modna ilustracija dana (široki rukavi i visoke potpetice)

Today I'm back with another fashion illustration. This one was inspired by one of my old outfits. I drew it back it 2017, but I didn't manage to post it before. The medium is watercolour (and pencil) on paper. It features an outfit composed of a denim skirt, a flared sleeved top and heels. I love denim skirts, but this one especially. I have had it for a while now and I still wear it regularly.  How do you like denim skirt? Do you own one? 

Another thing I love is flare sleeves and heels. Nothing like them to add some drama in an outfit. As long as I'm remembering about this outfit, I might also mention this caramel bag. It proved to be a good purchase. It is surprising how caramel seems to go well with everything. I told you (in my last post) that I've been craving red lately. I'm trying to come up with a lovely red outfit so do wish me luck. Thank you for reading and  have a lovely day!

  23. Dearest Ivana,
    your drawing looks beautiful and the original, too. Beautiful blouse with great sleeves and I really like your denim skirt - on you! I myself I don't like to wear denim skirts: I have not found one yet, which is really comfortable, the fabric is usually stiff and the cuts are not good for my figure. But maybe one day I find the ideal denim skirt... ;-)
    Hugs my dear!

  24. This illustration is excellent! It looks a lot like your photo and I like how you decorated with the candies.

  25. Good luck with the red outfit. I'm sure you'll come up with one you love a ton and I can't wait to see what you come up with. While I do own denim skirts, I haven't worn one in forever. Yours is cute and the flare sleeves is so trendy and lovely. Great illustration Ivana!

  26. Quelle maniche sono davvero molto belle. A me piacciono un sacco. Ottimo lavoro Ivana!!! Un bacio,

  27. I love how you've used one of your own outfits as inspiration for this fashion illustration! Using watercolour as your chosen medium must have been such an interesting process to learn, I always remember finding it very difficult to control on the paper haha. Have a wonderful weekend Ivana!! :)

  28. I love flared sleeves too. They are such a classic look! The red is lovely.

  29. Hey Ivana, hope that you're enjoying your week.

    Love to see that you're able to find inspiration even in your previous looks, that is such a remarkable way to keep creating as we never know where we will find references and things that inspire us. We must have our eyes wide open right? :)

    I really adore the way you draw the pose, it looks very natural :)

    All the best and have a good week ahead!

  30. Also I wanted to thank you deeply for the last feedback you left in my blog, I really really appreciate it, Ivana! Thanks for always being there supporting me and inspiring me with your creations :)

    1. thank you dear Pablo. Your support means a lot to me as well:).

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. 

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…
