FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: BLACK DRESS, GREY BLAZER AND BURGUNDY HEELS

Image
Hello there! July is coming to its end. It seems appropriate that I'm finishing this month with my Fashion Illustration Fridayfeature. I did try very hard to find time for fashion illustrating this past month. I managed to do make some fashion sketches and illustrations, so I'd say that I'm on a good track. Today I'll share with you one new fashion sketch inspired by a simple summer styling. Bellow you can see the collage with the outfit and sketch. On the left you can see the original outfit that inspired the fashion sketch, in between is the sketch I made wider and on the right is the original pencil sketch (drawn in an elongated style). Scroll down to see and read more. 
THE STORY OF AN OUTFIT- HOW I WORE IT BEFORE? I like the idea of achieving a sustainable closet by wearing our clothing items a minimum of 30 times. So, I try to keep track of how many times I have worn an item. This is also good for getting outfit inspiration and learning how to maximize our closet. …

VRBOSKA, BEACH SOLINE (HEAVEN ON EARTH)

Image
If you ever get the chance to visit Vrboska in summer, I strongly paying beach Soline a visit. Beach Soline is hands down one of the most beautiful beaches on island Hvar. We were lucky to swim there three times this summer (before it got too crowded for my taste). We thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. This beach is so beautiful! Plus, you don't have to restrict yourself to the beach itself. This whole area is gorgeous. There is plenty of natural shade (mostly in the form of pine trees) so if you're not a sun lover, you should still be able to enjoy it. There are also two beach bars to choose from (see this post for more information). YELLOW TOP , DRIVING LOAFERS VRBOSKA VILLAGE AND SOLINE BEACH ON ISLAND HVAR Vrboska is nicknamed Little Venice for a reason. This beautiful picturesque fishing village is a dream to stroll. I actually walked all the way from Jelsa on this particular day. I love that walk. It's about 6 km  long walk but it feels less long because the views…

17 WAYS TO WEAR A BLACK DRESS WITH A BOLD CHERRY PRINT

Image
Hello there! Today I'll show you 17 ways to wear a cherry print dress. This lovely cherry print dress and yours truly go way back. This dress was the very first dress gifted to me by a brand for a review back in 2015 (five years ago!). Since then, I have worn it many times. In fact, this dark cherry print appeared on my blog more than a dozen times. So, I decided to put together one of those 'X ways to wear an item' that you all seem to enjoy. You know, to promote shopping one's closet, sustainable fashion and all that, but equally importantly because it is fun to look back. Some of these outfits I shared before, while others are more recent (I linked up the older looks). Let's get this party started! A printed dress is a great summer essential. Cherry print has this vintage nostalgia to it that I really like. It's sweet and feminine. A dress like this one really doesn't need much? It is easy to dress up and down. Sometimes I want to simplify things and take…

INSPIRED BY ANYA (NEW FASHION ILLUSTRATIONS, COLOURED PENCILS)

Image
Today I'll show you two fashion illustrations that were inspired by outfits worn by Anya from fashion blog Reckless diary.  You can see and read the original post that inspired these illustrations here here. Let's start with the first illustration. I drew it with no name pencils (I have to remember to buy some art supplies asap) on a recycled cereal packaging. I didn't have any brown cardboard paper at home so I just used the cardboard from the packaging because I like to recycle. Scroll down to see the making of collage. I know you like to see drawing process so I always prepare these little collages for you. So, that would be the first outfit I illustrated. I wanted to use a brown cardboard paper to bring out the white of the t-shirt (possibly because I found a while colouring pencil and wanted to put it in use). This is a very cute styling that has some of my favourite colours: red, white and blue. I've been illustrating blazers a lot lately. Anyhow, the illustration…
