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

  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.

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


Are you ready to jump on board the scarf trend? My outfit proposal is all about the foulard. I matched my outfit with the colours of the foulard I was wearing, opting to wear a red blazer, a black pair of cord jeans and a blue turtleneck. It is a simple and comfy styling that made me feel quite chic. It is always good to have an outfit formula to fall back one for those days you don't have much time. One of the easiest ways to elongate your figure is by opting for a pair of high waist jeans and a cropped blazer (or jacket). If you wear a pair of heels with this combo, you'll appear even taller. Not saying that anyone should do that, but if you want to elongate your look, this is a simple and easy way to do it. Blazers and wide cut pants are always a chic combo, and a scarf will add something to every outfit. 

A great thing about a scarf is that it is an accessory that can be worn in a number of ways. I've prepared a little visual guide for you t…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…
