Outfit Proposal For Rainy Days #1 (How To Style a Black Skater Dress?)


When in doubt, wear black. In the past, I must have been doubt free for I hardly ever reached for black. I was all about colour. I used to abhor all black outfits, but now I'm warming up to them. Today my outfit proposal is almost all black with only touches of brown and grey. I opted for different shades of black, so this outfit isn't  not completely monotone. I don't know if you can see it on the photographs, but this skater dress is made of similar material as the coat, that is, the material is very thick. I bought it in one outlet store and I plan to wear it this Spring as well. I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to wear this dress during the Summer because I would be too warm. I think it is the only skater dress I have in my closet. I do understand the appeal of having lots of little black dresses in one's closet, for they do come in handy, but I only have two or three in mine.

As I said, I was never crazy about black, but it seems that I'm slowly but surely changing my mind. Who knows, maybe in the future you'll see me wearing all black outfits all the time. I have dyed my hair black recently. My natural hair colour is very dark brown (almost black) so it is not a big change but still. How about you? Do you like black outfits? Do you like dark hair? My dream hair colour would look something like this acrylic painting you can see below. Dark blue. But somehow I think that would take both time and effort, so for now I'm sticking with basic black.

skater dress: no name, coat: Tally Weijl, faux fur scarf: no name, shoes: Peko, bag: vintage



Rainy days. Winter is taking its time to leave and I'm not complaining. At least I can still wear my faux fur scarves. I'm even trying to figure out a way to wear them during the Spring/Summer season.  I do love faux fur scarves. While the weather is still like this, we can also wear our faux fur coats. There are some benefits to weather staying on the colder side, at least I'm trying to find some.Besides, the Spring will arrive, sooner or later, right? When weather is rainy and cloudy, we have an excuse to wear ugly beautiful shoes like the ones I have on. I love pointy shoes. I feel like they add something to any look. I might wear these in Spring time anyway. I will probably wear booties and boot until Summer. Some gals have already jumped into their sandals, but I'm not that brave.   I don't feel ready to wear sandals yet.


 What about you? How have you been? I have spent all my morning and most of my afternoon painting and illustrating. That usually puts me in a bad mood or maybe it just makes me tired. I finally took the time to look at some fashion shows from the recent fashion shows. I don't illustrate runaway looks all the time, but sometimes I do. Maybe you remember some of my old runaway illustrations. Last year I illustrated quite a few runaway looks and for some reason I often choose to illustrate looks from D&G collections. Today I looked back to these two fashion paintings made with acrylic paints.  Fashion illustrating with acrylic paints is not very common, at least I haven't see it around, but I like it. I feel like it makes the designs look more artistic so I sometimes do it. Not today, though. Today I choose to work only with watercolours.  You'll need to wait to see those watercolours, though. They need to dry and everything.

When I illustrate a look from some collection, I need to look at the video of the show as well to make sure I got all the details right. Illustrating clothes can be tricky for a number of reasons. It is not always possible to get a good idea of a design just by looking at a photograph from some runaway show. You can never see all the details that way. If you want to draw or paint a clothing item, you need to know what kind of material it is made of, how that material falls, what is the texture and all that. That is why I typically watch the fashion collections I plan to illustrate, sometimes even more that once. Obviously, this takes time. So, I don't get to do it that often. This morning and afternoon I have watched and illustrated designs from collections of Chanel,  Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabanna, Miu Miu and Stella McCarthey. That was a lot of illustrating and as I said, I feel really drained right now. I won't write about those shows yet. All in due time. Today's post is long enough, I figured. Thank you for reading. Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  4. Hai trovato un modo molto carino e femminile per indossare il nero, ivana, mi piace moltissimo la tua soluzione! Soprattutto trovo davvero perfetto l'abbinamento di quel cappotto con il vestito!
    Quanto al total black, personalmente non amo particolarmente indossare il nero, quindi look del genere li metto davvero raramente, anche perchè essendo già molto chiara sia di pelle che di capelli, il nero mi fa sembrare ancora più pallida!
    Trovo però che su di te invece stia bene (anche sui capelli) per cui fai bene a sperimantare nuovi look!
    Bellissime le illustrazioni!
    Baci!

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. 








DIY PROJECTS 
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…
