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.

HOW TO STYLE RED CLOTHING ITEMS FOR WINTER?

A few posts ago (yes, bloggers calculate time in post activity), I wrote about red accessories for winter but I also wanted to write about red clothing items you can wear this time of year. In fact, I was planning to write a big post about wearing red in winter but I realized that I need to split it in two because it was too long. Apparently, I have a lot to say about why wearing red in winter is a good idea. So, today I'll basically post the part two of my red in winter fashion musings. Red is a bold, energetic and dramatic colour. If you ask me, wearing red is a great way to invoke good luck in our new year. You can pair red with neutral colours to tone it down or with vibrant ones to make your outfits even more noticeable. Lunar Year festivities are a perfect time to embrace the red clothing items. Moreover, Valentine's Day is not too far off either. If you're looking for some winter red outfit inspiration, you have come to the right place. HOW TO WEAR RED IN WINTER?   My…

READING UPDATE: KAZUO ISHIGURO, THE BURIED GIANT AND MORE

Hello dear readers, how's life treating you? It's time for another reading update on my blog. You guys know that I'm a bookworm and a reading addict, right? Today I have a couple of book reviews to share with you. I'll be reviewing four books (more precisely: two novels and two short story collections). It's a mixed crowd of writers that I'm reviewing, from Nobel winning Kazuo Ishiguro to some other well known authors. So, let's get started. Scroll down to read my opinion of these books.  THE BURIED GIANT, A NOVEL BY KAZUO ISHIGURO 5/5 Having seen a fascinating interview with mr. Ishiguro about this very book, I had high expectations for The Buried Giant. I'm happy to report that my expectations were fulfilled. Once again, Kazuo Ishiguro impressed me his subtle and beautiful writing. This novel is a masterpiece. The Buried Giant is very moving tale of an elderly couple in search for their lost past. Axl and Beatrix share a strong connection, but just lik…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…
