Inspired by... Natalia

Time for my Inspired by post! Unless you're a new to my blog, you've probably seen or heard about this feature before. Inspired by is a regular feature in which I do a painting or an illustration of a (fashion) blogger that I then share it with you. I've been doing this for a few years now, and it is definitely one of my favourite features on this blog. My February girl was Tijana (here), in March I illustrated Jess (here) and last month I shared with you two watercolour illustrations of Natalia (here) Today I'm sharing with you an acrylic painting inspired Natalia again. This time I illustrated two of Natalia's  outfits, you can see them here and here. Acrylic paints are not a typical choice for fashion illustration, but I like to break the rules a little bit. I loved both of these outfits and I opted for acrylics because why not?

 I've also wanted to share with you birch wood items Natalia has sent me. You could already see me wear them, but I wanted to take some up close photographs so you can have a closer look. These earrings are so pretty, aren't they? I think I didn't know about the Russian tradition of making  boxes and jewelry from birch tree until fairy recently. I love hand made things, especially traditional ones. What about you? Do you like hand made things? Do you like traditional crafts? Do you know a traditional craft? Have you every tried to learn one? I did learn embroidery, but I kind of did it on my own, tried to figure it out based on traditional embroidery I saw so I can't attest it is 100 %  traditional method. I'm not sure if embroidery counts, but if yes I know at least one traditional craft. I'd love to learn something else as well. I hope I'll get the chance. Thank you for reading & stopping by!

  1. Oh those earrings are beautiful! I love the hairpieces too. What nice gifts!

    Great to see you trying different things and material with your artwork too. I don't have a creative outlet for crafting or artwork, unless you count blogging and youtube!

    Hope that you are having a great week so far! Almost the weekend! :)

  2. This is one of my favorite series which you feature. There's something so charming about traditional crafting because of the history and craftsmanship behind it. The birch wood pieces Natalia sent you are beautiful!

  16. My heart sings when I see you experimenting with different media - it seems acrylics are new to your fashion illustration series, am I right? I am struck by the difference in the mood of acrylic illustrations vs. watercolors - bold and bright vs. soft and tender... Colors are just fantastic! Thank you so much for sending me your illustrations, dear Ivana, I will always treasure them! With my little presents, I wanted to make you feel appreciated, and I am glad if you do. <3

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 VISIT TO MOUNTAIN CHURCH OF SAINT ELIAS IN NATURE PARK BLIDINJE (MASNA LUKA)

I blogged about nature park Blidinje  a couple of times already, but I haven't told you who came to the idea of protecting this incredible area in the first place! It was back in 1993 that friar Petar Krasić set to the important work of turning this mountain area into a national park. Thanks to his efforts, in 1995 (only a few years later) Blidinje became a nature park that spans over three municipalities and 364 square kilometers. Today I'll show you where this friar dwells, in a house next to the mountain church of Saint Elias. Located at 1204 meters of altitude and surrounded by breath-taking nature, this mountain church is quite something. I've been meaning to write about this beautiful church of saint Elias the Prophet for ages, but something always got into way. I love mountain churches, they are so romantic. This one especially so!  Church of Saint Elias the Prophet is like an oasis in a deep forest. 
This wonderfully isolated church of St. Elias in Masna Luka is s…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …

WHAT TO WEAR TO A SUMMER WEDDING? A METALLIC DRESS OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Today I'm back with a wedding guest outfit idea. Summer hasn't officially started yet, but it sure feels like it has. If you're wondering about what to wear to a summer wedding, I'll give you some ideas. Let's start with an outfit I wore to a wedding party last Friday. As I already explained yesterday, I opted for a metallic dress. You already saw me wear this metallic wrap dress in a casual way, now you can see me wear it in a formal way. There is nothing easier than dressing up a metallic dress, just grab a clutch and a pair of heels and you're ready to go. Metallic and sequin dresses are a great choice for weddings, especially those of formal kinds. In Herzegovina, weddings are typically quite formal affairs. You're expected to get all dolled up, it would be a total faux pas to show up wearing anything resembling a casual outfit. Typically, the weddings parties in Mostar are more expensive, glamorous, luxurious and elaborate than your typical wedding p…
