Fashion illustrations of the day (green dress, blue swimsuit) / Modne ilustracije dana (zelena haljina, plavi kupaći kostim)

Today I'm sharing two illustrations with you. The first one is combination of a painting and a drawing (mixed media watercolour and markers), while the other is a drawing but also mixed media one (coloured pencils and markers).  The style is a bit different than my usual illustration, but you know me- always mixing it up. The first illustration is that of a green dress with big sleeves. I do like the trends that came about this Spring. I'm a big fan of colour green so all these greenery vibes really make me happy. Not to say anything of the statement sleeves. I think this trend is here to stay. The second illustration depicts a summer outfit. I love illustrating swimsuits.  The location I had in mind for the second illustration is this one (just in case anyone is wondering). 

Danas sa vama dijelim dvije ilustracije. Prva je kombinacija slike i crteža (mješani medij: vodene boje i markeri), dok je druga crtež ali isto pomiješan medij (bojice i markeri). Stil je malo drugačiji od mojih uobičajenih ilustracija, ali znate mene, uvijek nešto novo uvodim. Prva ilustracija je slika zelene haljine sa velikim rukavima. Sviđaju mi se trendovi koji su se pojavili ovoga proljeća. Veliki sam obožavatelj zelene boje, tako da mi ovaj zeleni trend odgovara. Da ne kažem ništa o upečatljivim rukavima. Mislim da će se taj trend i održati. Druga ilustracija prikazuje ljetnu kombinacija.  Volim slikati kupaće kostime. Lokacija koju sam imala na pameti kada sam naslikala drugu je ova (u slučaju da se itko pita).

  3. Very nice! Have a lovely Day! 👌👌👌

  4. Both are really lovely! I hope you've had a good weekend :) xx

  5. Adoro le tue illustrazioni, lo sai, sei davvero brava e mi piace sempre molto la scelta dei colori che fai!
    Kisses, Paola.

  6. Both are really nice, good job on the brick work in the first one, Ivana.
    latest look: Glitter And Gingham

  7. That is such a lovely shade of green you used for the dress in the first illustration! I feel like I need to find something in that color to wear now :) And you did a really great job of capturing the spirit of summer in the second illustration. Nailed it on the location as well :)

    1. thank you Rowena. This shade of green is lovely, perhaps some day I'll use it to make a dress ( I will need to learn how to sew properly first). I'm glad you like these illustrations.

  8. So nice!!!!! Congrats!

  9. I see so many people rocking green, and the shade you used in the first sketch is really nice, I just have the hardest time wearing green. I'm trying to challenge myself to wear it more often as I do have a few green pieces in my wardrobe, but it's not easy for me like say blue or purple!

    Hope you have had a great weekend! :)

  10. Good job! :)
    Thanks for sharing!

  11. They're both really beautiful, but I just love the second :)

  12. Divne ilustracije! :D

  13. I want that second dress for the beach, it would be looking awesome!! I have transparent pants in this style, but haven't tried them out yet :D




  14. Molto belle entrambe le illustrazioni Ivana!
    Mi piace soprattutto la prima, hai reso davvero bene il vestito! :)

  15. Thanks for the great post) Have a nice week!

  16. look super amazing...xx

  17. both are pretty! love the way you made a transparent dress for the bikini outfit. gorgeous :)

  18. Ivana, I like the green one... I like poofy sleeve myself and green is a pretty color... also that is cute purple sheer cover up over the bathing suit... very nice.

    I wanted to thank you so much for all the lovely comments you left on my blog, I was incredibly touched with how thoughtful and caring they were. I am sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I was in terrible pain and not able to write ... which was difficult for me... My doctor gave me a new prescription that seems to helping ease the pain... Finally I can get back to writing and blogging, I missed both a great deal ... I hope you have a lovely week ahead xox

  19. Predivne su obe, a za trunku vise mi se dopada kupaci kostim :-*

  20. I do so like the first one, it is a delightful colour and I love how your hem of the dress looks like it is really 3d!

  21. Green is such a great color and just screams life to me. It's that time of the year when we see it all over. I love the big sleeve trend too and believe it's not going anywhere anytime soon. These illustrations are so awesome Ivana. You know I'm art illiterate but I know a good piece when I see one. So much details covered especially in the bathing suit piece. You really need to take this talent to the next level. Kudos for work well done as always darling!

    I hope you enjoy a fab weekend. I am pooped with all the work and protocol for closing of school on Thursday but I'll try to enjoy my weekend regardless.

  22. Nice green dress, Ivana! Love the puff sleeves! xoxo

  23. Both illustraions are breathtaking ! You are talented :)

  24. Another fabulous art job by you here. Wonderful!

  25. Gorgeous pics, I especially love how detailed the second one is! :) I do really love the colour green, but I don't think I own a single green item in my wardrobe. I always found it a little difficult to wear on me, but I do really like it on others. Perhaps I should change that! The dress in the first illustration is super beautiful. <3 Thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us! xoxo


  26. Very pretty!

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 …

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
