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!

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 …
