Pencil Drawing (The Making of): Outfit Post + Illustration (location Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Old Town and Bridge)


Today I'm sharing an outfit post and a pencil drawing. The drawing in question was inspired not only by the outfit I wore, but by the location as well.  When it comes to this drawing, the Old Town and the Old Bridge are drawn in quite a detailed way.  The location was a big part of what I tried to depict, so it's not a typical fashion illustration. It took me a long time to finish this one, as there were many details to capture. I included quite a few  photographs of the so called WIP that is 'work in progress' because I know that a lot of people enjoying seeing the process of drawing. As far as the outfit goes, it is a pretty candid representation of what I wear when it gets quite cold. Nothing beats a nice long puffer on those cold days, right?


I don't know if you can tell (though the cap and the gloves I'm wearing are a pretty good indication), but it was quite cold when these photographs were taken. Apart from the cold, there wasn't much else to complain about, for the day was quite lovely and sunny for most part. No surprise, as  Mostar is known for its sunny weather and the colder months are really no exceptions. We get plenty of sun and I absolutely love it. Have you ever been to Mostar? Are you planning to visit? This Old bridge you can see behind me is one of the best known sights in Mostar. Some might even call this bridge a symbol of Mostar.  It is certainly one of the most visited sights. Speaking of which, I'm thinking of putting together a little virtual tour of Mostar city. Would you like that? 

P.S. Sorry for being MIA for the last few days, I was in Croatia and I forgot to pack my laptop with me. I'll catch up with all of you tomorrow.

    Sviđam dugu zimsku jaknu. Sviđa mi se i boja i dužina.

  6. It has been freezing cold all over the place and so I applaud you for taking these photos haha :) The scenery there is breathtakingly beautiful; I can't get over how incredible it must be to have mountains as your backdrop on so many days of the week. I hope you had a wonderful time in Croatia, Ivana! Lovely idea to illustrate your own outfit by the way, it's like a permanent record of your styling :)

    1. I love being surrounded by mountains. I lived in quite a few cities in my life: Split, Dubrovnik, Rijeka, Catania, Palermo...and I was always lucky to be surrounded by mountains.

  7. This was such a fascinating look inside your creative process! Your cold weather accessories definitely gave a hint to the frigid weather.

  10. Diventi sempre più brava a disegnare Ivana!
    Realizzare dei paesaggi così articolati non è semplice, soprattutto per via delle diverse propsettive, ma tu sei riuscita benissimo a rendere il panorama!
    deve esser stata proprio una bella giornata, anche se fredda, il cielo è di un'azzurro spettacolare! :D
    Baci!

  12. I love your drawing - so detailed! Oh yes, I would LOVE a virtual tour of Mostar - such a beautiful town! I think I might have told you before that I watched Rick Steves Europe (a celebrity who actually lives and works from nearby town! Edmonds, WA) where he took us to Mostar, Split... I was hoping to see you on the streets! :) I remember this old bridge very well!

    You look adorable in your winter attire, stay warm!
    Lots of love!

  13. I know I always say I admire the way you tell stories through your art but you're so talented and have the power to inspire me to keep creating (sometimes I get too lazy after work or house duties) but promise I'll put out my pencil to draw more and more :)

    I really liked how you took inspiration from your own living place and it couldn't be more beautiful Ivana!

  14. wonderful drawing, Ivana, nice to see you again! Last year I was in Croatia visiting Zadar, Split for few hours and the naturals parks Kirk and Plitvice and I was amazed how can be. Mostar was between my dreams but times fly and we couldn't. So close to you... you crossed my mind!
    wishing you the best

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.

A RED DRESS FOR A DINNER DATE AT RESTAURANT ASIA ( SPLIT, CROATIA)

If you know me, you know that I'll grab every opportunity to don on a statement dress. Life is to short to wear boring dresses. Nothing is quite as dramatic as a statement red dress, am I right or what? I was planning on walking miles that night, so I paired my red dress with comfy shoes, a straw bag and a pink blazer (just in case if it gets windy). I'm a fan of wearing dramatic dresses with comfy shoes, it makes them stand out more- and it can make the outfit not only more comfortable but also fresh. I wore this red midi dress with ruffled sleeves for a date night in Chinese restaurant Asia in Split (HERE- one of my favourite places to grab Chinese food in the city). I had a lovely time dinning there with my significant other. I pretty much always order the same thing: home made noodles with veggies and dumplings. As always, the food was yummy. This restaurant is located in my old neighbourhood Split 3 (address: street Poljička cesta 39 ) and I definitely recommend paying it…

WHAT TO WEAR WHEN TRAVELLING IN SUMMER?

When we talk about travelling outfits, comfort is definitely something we need to consider. Everyone wants to be comfortable when travelling, right? As much as visiting a certain town or resort can be fun and relaxing, the process of getting there might be a little stressful. Comfort is definitely important. However, the thing is that everyone has a different definition of comfort. Some ladies might feel perfectly comfortable in a dress, while others might prefer the typical jeans and tee outfit formula. Sure, it makes sense to follow some rules. Opting for practical and utility wear might make your life easier when travelling. Similarly, wearing breathable, comfortable and natural fabrics in summer makes sense. However, what if you have a fabulous polyester vintage item you're dying to wear? You know, if that vintage polyester item makes you feel good, wearing it probably makes sense.
When it comes to summer travel style, being reasonable and practical is important. However, oft…

Ljubuški (Sights to See, Places to Visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti)

What a lovely place this is!  Do you remember it? If you don't, don't worry because I'll leave you with two little reminders i.e. links to previous posts ( here and here).  Can you recognize it now? If you are a first time visitor, I don't mind repeating myself. This is Ljubuški, a small city in region of Herzegovina, country Bosnia and Herzegovina. These photographs were taken back in February but since the weather has been a bit on the chilly side lately, I don't feel weird about posting them now. I originally planned to post a book review to go along with this post, but I couldn't think of anything nice to say about the book in question, so I gave up. I reviewed it a long time ago on goodreads and all I can say after reading it again is that I feel the same way about it. The concept of this book is great but it is written so badly. End of story. How it managed to win an award for the best novel of the year is beyond me. Anyway, it hasn't been translated…
