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 everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…



What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation  Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway. 
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended  up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
