Nadahnuta s....Inspired by....Tijana

Hi! Today my illustrations are inspired by Tijana, from fashionabejita blog. Isn't she just a ray of sunshine in this yellow maxi dress? I love seeing yellow worn in Summer. It is like carrying sun with us. The medium is coloured pencil on paper. As you may have noticed, I've been drawing a lot lately. I miss painting, but one can say that I felt the need to come back to basics and that means doing more drawings and sketches. So, my fashion illustrations have become fashion drawings. I've also continuing my experimentation with using make up for painting and drawing. That means you can expect more make up paintings and illustrations in the future. I've been thinking of putting my outfit posts on hold and focusing only on publishing my art. What do you think? What would you prefer to see: outfits, illustrations or both?

Zdravo! Danas su moje ilustracije nadahnute Tijanom, s bloga fashionabejita. Zar nije kao zraka sunca u ovoj žutoj maksi haljini? Volim vidjeti žutu nošenu ljeti. To je kao da nosimo sunce sa nama. Medij su bojice na papiru. Kao što ste mogli primijetiti, puno crtam u zadnje vrijeme. Nedostaje mi slikanje, ali može se reći da sam imala potrebu vratiti se osnovama, a to znači više crtanja i skica. Tako da su moje modne ilustracije postale modni crteži. Uz to, nastavljam sa svojim eksperimentima korištenja šminke za crtanje i slikanje. To znači da možete očekivati još više slika sa šminkom i ilustracija u budućnosti. Razmišljala sam o tome da odgodim odjevne objave i da se usmjerim samo na objavljivanje mojih radova. Što mislite o tome? Što biste više voljeli vidjeti: odjevne kombinacije, ilustracije ili oboje?


  1. Beautiful and so vibrant - love the fresh colours and romantic vibe :)

  4. I agree - a ray of sunshine! Your illustrations of her are really great and I love how you've photographed them in dappled sunshine; it goes hand in hand with the style of your art :) As always, lovely work Ivana!

  16. Hvala ti još jednom! Uvek mi je neizmerno drago kad vidim sebe u tvojim ilustracijama i način na koji vidiš moje fotografije i odeću, a ovog puta možda čak i više jer je u pitanju naša voljena žuta boja i haljina koju sam najviše volela da nosim ovog leta. Ja se radujem svim objavama i čemu god da se odlučiš jer kada nekoga pratim i cenim kao osobu pre svega, sve me interesuje :)

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …


I was thinking about why I like tartan pattern so much, when one reason crossed my mind. I figured that it probably has something to do with the history and the culture behind this particular pattern. After all, I always say that traditional and folklore clothing (be it original or reproduced) carries additional value. Traditional patterns can be such an wonderful source of inspiration. Traditional patters have soul to them, one might say. The history of tartan is particularly interesting. Today we mostly associate tartan with Scotland, but according to some historians, tartan like fabrics were used by ancient Celtic populations spreading across the British Isles as early as the sixth and the eight century BC. Well, that one old pattern for sure! However, even if tartan clothes are really as old as ancient Celts, it is the still Scotland that is responsible for tartan we know today. Did you know that different tartan patterns can represent different Scottish families? Something like …
