I teamed up with the talented fashion illustrator Jess of @theneesheillustrator to help create a holiday ensemble in the form of watercolor for the beautiful influencer Jessica Askari of @StilettoFashions! Jessica is not only gorgeous but so sweet and cool which is easy to see from her posts and stories. Her style is classic, chic, sleek, and she wears warm colors especially well. Initially I put together four looks for Jessica but landed on the rich, marigold velvet Galvan London jacket and palazzo pant set. The full look, below, is everything Jessica embodies: sexy, stylish and perfectly accessorized with emerald heeled sandals, a crystal clutch and pave chain hoops. You just know this silhouette looks killer on her!
Once the look was chosen, Jess (@theneesheillustrator) got to work. As you can see below, she did an impeccable job of illustrating & painting not only the outfit but also Jessica’s face and features perfectly, which if you’re an artist, you know is one of the hardest things to do. Let me just say that this girl is brimming with talent. Among her roster of collaborations with well known retailers, bloggers and influencers, it is her sheer artistic talent and whimsical fashion-themed watercolors that makes you do a double take.
