Inspired by Jessica from Not Jess Fashion (Fashion illustration: Watercolour)

Hi guys! Today it's time for my regular 'Inspired by' feature. That means I'm back with another fashion illustration of mine. But as you know, when it comes to this feature, it's not going to be just any kind of fashion illustration. It's going to be a fashion illustration inspired by a fashion blogger. Over the years, I've  illustrated so many fashion bloggers. I love fashion bloggers (big surprise!:)).  I've always maintain that when it comes to regular features on my blog, this is my favourite one. Perhaps because it allows me to join two things I love, fashion bloggers and my art.

This time I illustrated a blogger from Not Jess Fashion (you can visit her blog here). The medium is watercolour on paper. I added some finishing touches with coloured markers. I absolutely love this outfit. Well, I obviously love it since I illustrated it and all. I think it's feminine, beautiful and simply perfect for these transitional days. Great take on the ultra violet trend as well. Do check out Jessica's blog if you're looking for some inspiration. She has a fabulous sense of style. That would be all for today. Scroll down to see the 'making of' process. Have a lovely day everyone! Thank your for reading.

  1. Great inspiration! I love this illustrayion, iy's so lovely.

  2. Hello!!
    I know this blog, she is very stylish. Beautiful illustration ...

  3. Molto bella la tua illustrazione ed anche il look a cui ti sei ispirata, Ivana!
    Mi piace moltissimo l'effetto dell'acqueello sugli abiti!

  4. Wow, I know her, she is wonderful in fashion. I really loved this outfit of Jess but I'm loving your illustration more than her original one. You have done it so beautifully. i know that it's not easy. I'm sure she will be happy to see herself in your art <3 <3
    Have a fantastic day <3

  5. Great Illustration! Also the Outfit in Violet looks gorgeous. :)


  6. That is a really chic monochromatic outfit and I love the way you illustrated the fluidity of her dress.

  7. I love that your illustration captures the basic shape, look of the design, colour, and flow of the fabric used in the couture worn by Jessica from Not Jess Fashion. I too love fashion bloggers. I can easily imagine your illustrations capturing your own ideas for fashion creations on paper, begging to be transformed from your artwork to into fashion designs. I think you make a brilliant fashion designer.
    P.S. THANK YOU for your lovely comment on my blog post at
    I also love your Twitter @modaodaradosti (Ivana Split) and would love to subscribe to your YouTube channel if you get one :D

  13. Pooh this one's cool! I think this one is probably my favourite one, there's something different about the illustration that I really like. One day I will wear an outfit cute enough to wind up on your blog, I'm determined. Also you know my Crohn's which I was dealing with? Turns out I was actually pretty unwell so have been put on a bunch of medication which is fun. Any updates on your illness?

    1. thank you so much! I'd love to illustrate you some day.

      In this post operation period I've only been taking Pentasa, but my symptoms are pretty bad. The doctors were planning to put me on Humira again, but now it seems they've changed their mind. Right now, I'm waiting for blood tests so I can have an appointment with my doctor to agree on new medications. She wants to put me on Imuran and stereoids again.

  14. Beautiful illustration and great inspiration:)

  15. You did an excellent job illustrating her. That purple is fabulous and I always appreciate how you capture movement in your drawings.

    1. thank you, capturing movement can be tricky but it is also a lot of fun.

  16. Hi Ivana! I'm sooo flattered! You're the sweetest, I absolutely love your illustration! This is the coolest thing I've ever seen in a while. Kisses!

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.

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. …
