Resort Fashion Illustration

Happy Friday Fashionistas, as most of you may know I've mentioned that I do illustrations; these illustrations are mostly fashion illustrations. Being that it is Friday I will start posting my past Illustrations here on my blog for Flash Back Friday from here out now.

I took fashion illustration back in 2009 and created cohesive mini collections based on several themes; in the end I had a portfolio full of illustrations. Today I've decided they are worth sharing :-) hope you enjoy this mini-series every Friday.

Ok so lets' get started. This first illustration is a resort collection. The collection had to include a bathing suit and lightweight materials to be carried in a luggage. The backstory of this collection: my girl would be going on a cruise and enjoying the waves in her bathing suit. She had a small luggage where she packed her lightweight outfits and had no room for an iron lol. Because the weather would be a bit warm the fabrics would consist of thin knit, chiffons, and airy fabris. The collection was inspired by animal print mainly zebra print with teal as a pop up color.

The bathing suit I wanted it to be different then what your use to seeing out there, with many crisscross elements. The styling on her was very much inspired by the zebra hence the Mohawk reminiscent to the zebra’s hair. I did go a bit over the top with her make-up simply because I was envisioning her on the catwalk.

The cocktail dress I wanted to have a full circle skirt with tulle underneath. The bodice with sweetheart neckline and cups for more support and as added detail it has straps that tie at one shoulder to create a bow. The waist consisted of rushing, I had done a technique in one of my other classes and I thought it would look beautiful instead of a plain waist. I styled her with 1920’s curls from the flapper era. Again I went heavy on the make-up, and a striking red lipstick. She has minimal accessories since the outfit already is an attention getter.

The casual look I wanted to keep it simple but interesting at the same time. The back would be the focal point; therefore I decided to add different straps that intertwine together by knots. I added a little knot at the bottom of the hem. The bottom of the dress has a subtle bubble shape. I styled her with a dramatic afrow and a headband. She has lots of accessories because the dress is casual she can get away with it. The make up here is less dramatic kept it more subtle.

Here is the collection, the picture is a bit blurry I'll update it later on along with detail shots.

 
Materials used: pencil, prisma markers, and prisma color pencil.
 
 
How do you like this new series? Which outfit do you like out of the three?
 
xoxo,
Paulette

Hello darlings, today I have a beauty product review from Keep Me Safe Organics!

The company carries organic, toxic free beauty and skincare products. I believe that taking care of your face is important since it is the first thing everyone sees so make it a lasting impression. I'll be reviewing their skincare line, which are the facial cleanser, facial toner, facial moisturizer, serum, and rejuvenating glacier mud mask. (Disclosure, all products provided by Keep Me Safe OrganicsAll my opinions are mine and I'm keeping it 100%.)
In order to give you my honest opinion, I tested the products for three days and made a video documenting my results after using all the products. I will post the video below. Let's talk about my skin issues before using the products; I suffered from dry flaky skin, red blotchy patches on my cheeks and of course acne. I'll be reviewing each item and tell you a bit more about them.
