Redhair (fashion illustration of the day)/ Crvenokosa (modna ilustracija dana)

watercolour/vodene boje

Today I'm sharing one of my fashion illustrations with you. This one was inspired by  recent trends that I happen to fancy, so this illustrated outfit includes  lace up heels, plaid skirt and off shoulder blouse. They said that one shouldn't wear more than one trend per outfit. Well, rules are meant to be broken, right? This is something I would like to wear. Well, at least I know I will get the chance to wear a statement necklace like the one I illustrated. You see for the last few days I've been sewing and working on new statement necklaces, so that is how I know.  Sometimes the easiest way to get something you want is to make it yourself.

Danas ću podijeliti jednu od svojih modnih ilustracija s vama. Ovu su nadahnuli nedavni trendovi koji mi se eto sviđaju, tako da ilustrirana odjevna kombinacija uključuje cipele na pete s vezicama u gladijatorskom stilu, plisiranu suknju i bluzu golih ramena. Kažu da ne treba nositi više od jednoga trenda na sebi. No, zar pravila nisu tu da se krše? Ja bi ovo nosila, a barem znam da ću sigurno nositi upečatljivu ogrlicu poput ove koju sam ilustrirala zato jer sam zadnjih par dana radila na šivanju i izradi novih ogrlica. Ponekad kada nešto želite, najjednostavnije je to napraviti sam.


  1. A beautiful illustration!!

  12. Great work of art ,love the lace up shoes drawing. Have a fab weekend!

  13. If only I could wave a wand and have all those trendy items in the illustration come to life. And magically appear in my closet. Gosh, if wishes were horses. I don't believe in abiding by rules especially when it comes to fashion. If it looks good I'm wearing it, lol. I love all the lace up shoes and off shoulder blouses. So cute. I'm very sure the necklace you made looks great. I can't wait to see it.

    1. If you get hold of that magic wand let me know:)

  14. Rules are indeed meant to be broken, well fashion ones anyway. Don't start robbing banks on us dear ;) xoxo

  16. Bellissimo!!

  17. Yes, dear Ivana, it is really one of the easiest way to make the things we want by ourselves :) I did this especially in the past very often - and feel always inspired when doing. And you are right: why should one wear not more than one trend at the same time? Not only due to this reason I really like your illustration of today and the power your illustration sends to me. Have a wonderful weekend!

  22. Da, zasto da ne :-) Spoj vise trendy komada prikazala si na zaista sjajan nacin.

  23. Love the look you've created here, Ivana. Rules? what rules? The only rule in fashion is, there ain't no rules in fashion. Period. Lovely illustration as well, Ivana. NIce approach at the wet-in-wet technique for the background.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
