Inspired by....Fashionably Idu, Tijana Abejita and Jointy & Croissanty

The best thing about blogging, for me, is finding so many inspiring women. Women that are beautiful inside & out. That is how my Inspired by feature was born. As someone who blogs and creates art on daily basis, it seemed only natural to create a feature in which I would publish my illustrations of bloggers who inspire me. It is a sort of a blog recommendation, only a bit more personal. I typically publish my Inspired by feature monthly. Last month some unexpected events took me out of the country and messed up with my blogging schedule a little. I know that not being able to blog  for 3 days is not the end of the world, but I keep a tight blogging schedule so when sometimes like that happens, it can cause me to miss out on a regular feature. Anyhow, to make up for not being able to publish my Inspired by feature last month, I prepared not one but three illustrations for you today!!! I'm really excited about sharing these ones with you.


 Today I illustrated bloggers from Fashionably Idu and Jointy &Croissanty as well as Tijana from @tijanabejita. The medium for all of these illustration is coloured pencils on paper. I got up really really early in the morning to be able to get these done. I would say that each illustration took me about a half an hour give or take. Together they took me about two hours to make. I'm trying up to speed up my drawing speed. Sometimes it is good practice, sometimes it can be distracting. Like with any kind of skill development, sometimes it is a try and error thing. You learn to speed up things, and then you might realize that some things might take more time, but still the practice might have been useful. Anyhow, that's about it as far as the medium and the technique concerned. I'm constantly working a lot of developing my art skills and trying out new things in the process.










 The outfits I illustrated are really cute, don't you agree? I love the sheer and ruffled shirt Idu is wearing, paired with that vintage Chanel belt it looks both fashion forward and put together...and what to say about those cobalt palazzo pants? Aren't they gorgeous? When it comes to Tijana's outfit, I coloured it a bit darker than it really us just because white pencil doesn't show on white paper. Originally the dress Tijana is wearing is white, but on my drawing it is more gray than white.  The final outfit is also very cute. I love the contrast between the black top and cap and the girly skirt. It's a great summer urban look, that is at the same time very feminine. Gorgeous outfits, all three of them. Scroll down to see both the finish version and the 'making of' photographs.

  2. Glad you were able to pick back up and still share some illustrations after a blog break of a few days! :) I usually write all my blog posts in advance and it works well, but I've fallen behind and I'm not quite 2 weeks ahead. I'd love to be back to being 3 weeks ahead in posting, but not sure when I'll catch back up to that, haha!


    Hope that you're having a great week so far! :)

  3. I must say that I truly enjoy you taking the time to illustrate your favorite bloggers. Using color pencils as a medium is pretty fun and one that I see you gravitate to time and time again. I really love the details in the outfits of the girls and my favorite would be JointyCroissanty's illustration because it seems hard with the dark color scheme but you made it work somehow! Thank you for always inspiring me dear - I cannot wait to show you my beginner's take on nail polish art :D xo

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.

WHAT DRESS TO CHOOSE THIS AUTUMN? SPECIAL OCCASION OUTFIT IDEAS

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.

AUTUMN COLOUR COMBOS TO CONSIDER
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.

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

HOW TO STYLE GREY FOR AUTUMN/WINTER?
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 …
