Winter magic (my fashion illustrations of the day)/ Zimska čarolija (moje modne ilustracije dana)

My last illustration was focused on Spring. Today, my inspiration is Winter. Maxi dresses. Crazy accessories. Big sleeves. Fur coats. That calm at the end of the day. Silent nights.  Sky filled with twinkling stars. Winter magic. 

Moja zadnja ilustracija bila je u tonu proljeća. Nadahnuće za današnju je zima. Duge haljine. Ludi modni dodaci. Veliki rukavi. Krzneni kaputi. Zimska čarolija. Taj smiraj na kraju dana. Tihe noće. Nebo prekriveno zvijezdama koje sjaje. Zimska čarolija.

This illustration is actually a remake of this one. Yes, I didn't manage to salvage it. However, I managed to turn it into something else. I used only watercolours on this one, but I managed to create a collage effect. I'm not sure does this one qualified as mixed media. As you can see I added tiny bits of paper and bonded them with water and then painted on them with watercolour. So, the components are just paper, water and watercolours. How do you like this fashion illustration? Do you like this trend of big sleeves?

Ova ilustracija je zapravo prepravak ove. Da, nažalost nisam je uspjela spasiti. No, uspjela sam je pretvoriti u nešto drugo. Koristila sam samo vodene boje, ali uspjela sam stvoriti efekt kolaža. Nisam sigurna je li se ovo može nazvati mješanim medijem. Kao što vidite dodala sam male komadiće papira i povezala ih vodom i onda sam ih oslikala vodenim bojama. Tako da su u pitanju samo vodene boje, papir i voda. Kako vam se sviđa ova modna ilustracija? Sviđa li vam se ovaj trend velikih rukava?

. This illustration on the other hand is mixed media. I used red nail-polish on top of the watercolours. That would be the red part of this dress. I played with collage on this one as well. This second illustration also depicts a maxi dress but there is a fur coat on top of it. Do you like it?

 Ova ilustracija pak je mješavina medija. Koristila sam crveni lak za nokte povrh vodenih boja. I na ovoj sam se zaigrala na temu kolaža.  To bi bio crveni dio ove haljine. Druga ilustracija također prikazuje dugu haljinu, ali preko nje je i krzneni kaput. Sviđa li vam se?





  1. I love the sleeves of the blue dress! Lovely drawings :)

  2. This illustration is so beautiful. I really love it! It's great how you used mixed media items like nail polish in your work. I do like big bell sleeves. I see a lot of vintage pieces from the 80's with fantastic bubble sleeves and more flowy sleeves in boho styles. I am a huge fan of this style in design. The fur maxi dress looks so Fabulous with fur over it. You are so talented dear, can't wait to see more of your fashion illustrations. Hope you have a great week:)

  12. I really like how you added different types of media to create a 3D effect on these illustrations. The collage really adds to the visual interest of the designs. I love the remake and the transformation you made with it. The flared sleeves are a really cool detail and create a great focal point to the entire outfit.

Hello, lovely readers! Summer is finally here. Are you as excited about summer as I am? Today I'm back with another summer styling, and this time it's about a white floral maxi dress. I love white items for the summer, and if they come with a floral print even better. If you read my last post, you know that I decided to welcome the summer in bay Torac (on island Hvar, Croatia). I told you that one of the first things I packed was a yellow jumpsuit as it is a good vacay item and so easy to throw on when you're at the beach. Another essential vacation classic is a maxi dress. This white maxi dress with a cute floral print proved to be the perfect vacation item because it is so easy to dress up and down (for example, here you can see how I styled this maxi with kitten heels). I actually got this white maxi dress as a part of a collaboration review post last year. Today you can see me wearing it in a more dressed down summer version, with tropical print sandals (same here) an…


How to style a yellow floral jumpsuit for summer? You know when I packed for island Hvar (Croatia), this yellow jumpsuit was one of the first things I packed. I don't wear jumpsuits and playsuits that often during the colder months but I opt for them often enough when it gets warmer. One great thing about a floral jumpsuit is that it is a statement piece on its own. That means that styling it is quite easy. Another advantage of this kind of garment is that you can easily dressed up or down. I wore this yellow jumpsuit to beach, so I dressed it down with a beach bag and white sandals. If I were to dress it up, I would probably pair it with heels (as I did here and here). 
Jumpsuits are simply ideal for vacation wear. They are so easy to thrown on. I like to wear them over swimsuits for that beach chic look. I got this jumpsuit in a collaboration last year, and I'm still not bored of it. I definitely plan to wear it a lot for my island Hvar trip. Yellow is such a great colour f…


What to wear when you're travelling? In summer, I often opt for print dresses because they are fun and seem to go well with anything. I packed quite a few printed dresses for my visit to island Hvar (Croatia). As long as the dresses are comfortable, they are my 'go to' travel outfit. This mixed print dress is one of my favourite travel summer dresses. You have seen me wear it a lot on this blog, especially for hiking and sightseeing (and you know I believe in shopping one's closet). It's a great day to night dress as well, quite easy to dress up and down. My outfit proposal of the day is more casual in tone so you could said that I dressed the dress down. The shoes I choose to go along with this dress are printed sandals from Art brand. I bought them when I was in Split last spring and they're super comfortable (not sponsored).  I also wore a backpack because they are more practical for travelling. I have quite a pragmatic mind when it comes to fashion, and I …
