Watercolour of the day + Outfit of the day / Akvarel dana + Odjevna kombinacija dana


First of all, congrats to Brooklyn Grace, the winner of my last giveaway. I mailed the illustration the morning following the giveaway, so it should arrive soon enough. I think this was the first time I made this sort of a giveaway on my blog, i.e. a giveaway that featured one of my works. I was thinking about doing it for a while, but I figured it is better to work on improving my technique so I waited until I made something I could be really happy with.  There will probably be more giveaways of the same sort, so stay posted. Now, about the painting of the day. This watercolour took a bit more time to make, because I changed my mind about the colour length and some other details. I like the final look of it, though. In this post, you can see my painting process because I included some 'before and after' photographs.  I'm still figuring out watercolours, but at least I can say that I don't lack any inspiration. I'm always feeling inspired. 

Prvo čestitke Brooklyn Grace, pobjednici zadnjega darivanja. Poslala sam ilustraciju jutro nakon darivanja, tako da bi trebala brzo stići. Mislim da je ovo prvi put da sam organizirala neko slično darivanje, to jest darivanje u kojem sam poklanjala neki svoj rad. Već neko vrijeme sam razmišljala o tome, ali sam zaključila da je bolje da radim na usavršavanju tehnike tako da  sam čekala dok ne napravom nešto sa čime mogu biti doista zadovoljna. Vjerojatno će biti još sličnih darivanja u budućnosti tako da budite u toku. Sada, što se tiče slike dana. Ovaj akvarel sam dugo slikala, jer sam se predomislila oko dužine kose i još nekih detalja. Sviđa mi se kako je ispalo na kraju. U ovoj objavi možete vidjeti moj proces slikanja jer sam uključila i "prije i nakon" fotografije. Još uvijek učim raditi s akvarelom, ali barem mogu reći da mi ne nedostaje nadahnuća. Uvijek se osjećam nadahnuto.

----------------OUTFIT OF THE DAY ----------------ODJEVNA KOMBINACIJA DANA --------------


Location of the day is Siroki brijeg (in reality it is spelled Široki brijeg and the intial letter Š is pronounced like 'sh' in ship), a little town in Herzegovina that I've been visiting  frequently for reasons connected with the construction of my new home. In case in anyone is interested, my new home is still work in progress. Anyway, today I'm not going to only post that many photographs from Siroki brijeg but I will show you my favourite spot in this town and that is the Franciscan monastery and the church of Assumption of Virgin Mary. It is possible that the reason why I like this church so much is because it reminds me of the church in Jelsa (island Hvar). Maybe I should draw it some day, or even better- why not draw both of them? As far as outfit is concerned, your probably already know this dress, for it is one of the most frequently worn items in my closet.


Današnji lokalitet je Široki brijeg, (kojega u zadnje vrijeme često posjećujem jer tu naručujem neke stvari za novu kuću, ukoliko ikoga zanima, radovi su još uvijek u tijeku i ne nadzire im se kraj). Tako da neću danas objaviti puno slike iz Širokoga brijega, alu ću vam pokazati svoje najdraže mjesto u ovome gradu , a to je franjevački samostan i crkva Uznesenja Djevice Marije. Moguće je da je razlog zašto mi se ova crkva toliko sviđa jer me podsjeća na crkvu u Jelsi (na otoki Hvaru). Možda bi je trebala nacrtati jednoga dana, ili zašto ne nacrtati obje? Što se tiče odjevne kombinacija, vjerojatno već znate ovu haljinu jer je jedna od najčešće nošenih odjevnih komada u moje ormaru.

14 WAYS TO STYLE A MAGENTA COAT FOR WINTER

Hello dear readers and fellow bloggers. The cold isn't going anywhere, so I'm back with more winter styling ideas. Today I've prepared for your another posts that shows multiple ways to wear a coloured coat. Coloured coats have been trendy for a while and it's a trend I cannot get enough one. Choosing winter outwear that works for you is so important in embracing winter fashion. If you remember, I already blogger about 30 ways to wear a short black coat, 18 ways to wear a long beige puffer and 20+ ways to wear a tartan blazer.  Now, this magenta coat is such a statement piece.  I've bought it two years ago and I've worn it many times since then. How many times I'm not exactly sure, but I did wear it at least 15 times on the blog. Altogether, I have 17 outfits with this magenta coat documented  and photographed (3 of which I wore last week). I'm actually a big fan of coloured coats because I feel they're such an easy way to add colour to our winter …

LAST MINUTE V-DAY DRESS OUTFIT IDEAS

Happy Valentine's day! Today I'm back with some last minute Valentine's day ideas. When I think of Valentine's day outfits, the first thing that comes to my mind is a dress. So, today I'm going to include some dress outfits I wore recently as well as some of my old looks including my old Valentine's day outfits. Looking back, I seem to always opt for a dress on Valentine's day. I like wearing dresses anyhow so wearing a dress on Valentine's day seems like a no-brainer. Throwing on a nice dress is such an easy way to create a feminine and chic styling. My first outfit proposal is a step back from the typical Valentine's day outfit as it features a checkered dress. This black and red dress is still quite feminine but the checkered print gives it a bit of rock chic. I wanted to keep the colours minimal and  the outfit functional so I wore it with  a brown faux leather coat  and camel boots. I accessorized with a brown tartan scarf and a black bag. Scr…

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…
