All's well that ends well (a canvas)/ Sve je dobro što se dobro svrši (jedno platno)




uljane boje /  oil paints












finished/ dovršeno


This canvas took me about two months to finish and to be quite honest I was starting to wonder if I'll ever get there. I did finish it sometime last summer and maybe I shown you a photograph of it back than. Nevertheless, I  decided to post these photographs to show all the different stages it went trough. As you can see, I made a lot of corrections in the process. The church portrayed is that of Saint Stephanus located in one of my favourite cities in Croatia, Stari Grad on the island Hvar. There is a very funny episode of Malo Misto that takes place in front of this church and I must had watched it a hundred times.

Bilo mi je potrebno oko dva mjeseca da završim ovo ulje na platnu i iskreno počela sam se već bila pitati hoću li ga ikada dovršiti. No, jesam tamo nekad prošlog ljeta, a možda sam vam ga već i pokazala tada. Odlučila sam objaviti ove fotografije da vidite različite faze kroz koje je prošlo. Kao što možete vidjeti, bilo je dosta ispravaka. Crkva koja je naslikana je crkva Sv. Stjepana u Starom Gradu na otoku Hvaru, poznatu  svim ljubiteljima Malog Mista kao crkva ispred koje se događa "borba" u epizodi Borbene Ponoćke (mislim da sam je pogledala sto puta).

HOW TO STYLE A BROWN FAUX LEATHER COAT?

Today I'll show you a couple of ways to start a brown faux leather/ faux fur coat. We'll start with a more dressed up version. Now, this brown coat comes with a faux fur hoodie and that gives it more of a casual vibe, similar to that of a parka jacket. So, I decided to dressed it up with accessories (always the best way to dress up an item). I paired this coat with predominately black accessories: a pair of stilettos, a bag, a pair of earrings and a headband. I also wore a statement necklace. The dress I was wearing under the coat was a simple grey dress (bought at Terranova some time ago), so I wasn't afraid to pile on the accessories.  Scroll down to see and read more.  DIY HEADBAND PROJECT: HOW I HAND SEWED THE FLORAL APPLICATIONS You already had the chance of seeing this DIY headband many times, but it's been a whole since I showed you how I actually made it. I found some floral applications and just sewed them onto the headband. I often avoid gluing in my DIY proj…

10 STYLE LESSONS LEARNED FROM MALENA/ MONICA BELLUCCI

With summer being in full spring, I caught myself thinking about iconic summer outfits. Do you know what came to my mind? Costumes/outfits worn by Monica Belluci when she played Malena Scordia in an iconic Italian movie set on Sicily.  The costumes for that movie were designed by an acclaimed Italian costume designer Maurizio Millenotti and he outdone himself! Seeing that Malena is a historical movie, Maurizio choose quite timeless outfits and cuts that will ever go out of style. That fact makes Malena movie the perfect place to look for inspiration! Moreover, I feel that Monica Belluci's personal style is quite similar to Malena's (i.e. to the style of the character she is playing). There is definitely a Mediterranean lady feel about Malena/Monica Bellucci. What says summer better than Mediterranean and Sicily? Today we'll analyze Malena's style and see what we can learn from her. There is much to learn! Having analyzed looks that Monica wore in iconic Malena film, I…

20+ WAYS TO WEAR A TARTAN BLAZER FOR COLD WEATHER

Tartan is a true classic if you ask me. If you are a fan of this pattern, you might enjoy this post. Today I'll show you 20 plus ways to style a green tartan blazer for cold weather, starting with how I wore this green tartan blazer a few days ago. It was such a lovely day! Don't you just love those sunny winter days? I always feel better when it is sunny, even when it's a bit cold. On this particular sunny day, I decided to wear my tartan blazer. I wore two layers under it and topped it with a faux fur stole, so I was feeling quite warm and cozy. I paired it with a dusty pink skirt and a very comfy (and old) pair of brown heeled boots. 

Anyhow, when I went on this sunny stroll with a colleague of mine, she complimented me on this green tartan blazer. That made me reflect on how many times I have worn  this tartan blazer. While I didn't keep a written record and cannot give you a precise number, I can tell you that this green blazer is one of the most worn items in my …
