Francesca Evangelista Melany

Hello beauties
it seems that the problems with my Wi-Fi connection at home are now over and I really hope to be more present than past days <3
One of the greatest gift I received for Christmas is Melany bag by Francesca Evangelista, a very verastile bag that can be used both for day and night.
The thing I like the most about this bag is that it can be used in three different ways! It's the perfect clutch for the night, capacious and so elegant, becomes a crossbody for the daily routine where what you deserve is to be comfy and then the you can reduce the chain and give it the right touch to make it more sophisticated.
Francesca Evangelista is an Italian designer, very talented and with a special allure of elegance that she can transmit through her bags and through her breathtaking collections that you can see here.
For this festivity Francesca has launched a super cute video that you can watch at this link, it's so fashionable and funny!
Hope that you will like Melany, let me know what you think!

Sony Christmas Event

Hello beauties
how was your week-end going? Finally today is my last day of working and then two weeks of holiday, super yay!
Few days ago I had the chance to attend to the sophisticated Sony Christmas event, a very elegant party that Sony organized to make the best wishes to their friends.
At Space Watt in Milano, the famous ex Lux Cinematografica, in a so refined atmosphere , Sony displayed some of its hot products such as TV plasma screen, headphones, MP-3 player, Vaio pc and incredible photo-cameras.
I really liked the place, the perfect decorations and the intimate, delicate and polished air that wavered in the loft, so I took some pictures with my Sony NEX-3n to bring also you to this fantastic event.

Baileys Christmas Lounge

Hello beauties
few days ago I was invited to the special Baileys Christmas Lounge in Milano, to celebrate the new Christmas drink inspired by The Nutcracker. 
If you are in Milano today I highly recommend you to go because the atmosphere is really cozy and warm, it's open from 5 PM to 8 PM in via Varese 1, Verger space, by calling 0039 02 34970731, it's the last day!
The drink is very sweet but intense with chocolate chips, perfect for a night in front of the fireplace, bounded in a blanket and listening to some jazz music. 
The video ( you can watch it at the end of the post!) of the Christmas campaign signed by Baileys was again inspired by the famous The Nutcracker and costumes used are exposed at the Lounge.
I also had the chance to try false lashes and a personalized make-up by mua MAC, my gaze became more sensual and deep and I totally love it!
I'm so happy and grateful for this great experience and I took some pictures to share it with you, in case you can't go to see it personally <3

What's Inside You S/S 2014

Hello beauties
if I look outside my window all I can see is some snow and dark atmosphere, and so the best way to fight them is treat myself with something fresh and vitaminic like new S/S 2014 collection by What's inside you.
What's inside you is the clothing line of one of my iconic muse, Eleonora Carisi, who can't be categorized as a designer, Grazia IT girl, a blogger or an influencer because she is a chamelonic person, she can be everything in only a single body and mind. 
Very talented and histrionic, Eleonora dedicates her collection to women who know what they want and who are not afraid to express theirselves in a different way every day but always unique.
I'm really enthusiastic about S/S 2014 collection, characterized by solar colors and prints, mainly flowers and minerals, in neoprene and silk organza, with soft shapes that seem to embrace bodies and soul. Yes because Eleonora was able to touch the inner side with What's inside you, her creative mind pierces and you can only abandon yourself and enter in her Italian secret garden...
Bags are created in collaboration with Italian brand Hibourama.

Look of the day: Caresse my soul

Hello beauties
this is my last week of work and then I'll be on holiday for two weeks, I can't believe and I can't wait. I already plan to sleep a lot, to read much books as I can and then sleep again :) You know, just relaxing and chillin'! And what about you? What are you going to do during these special days? Any trips?
I love to challenge myself with new looks different from my daily style and when I saw for the first time the burgundy dress with soft collar by Manila Grace and the tricot cardigan by Christian Lacroix for Desigual I fell in love with them. I would never thought to style them together but when I tried them it was love at first sight!
The dress is really warm and embracing while the cardigan is so particular and cozy, the final result was a mix of hippie, chic and urban styles and I super like it :)
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Parallel Universe

Hello beauties
as you already know, I'm very involved in finding new talented designers and to promote them as much as I can because people who follow their dream and never give up need all our support.
I found my It brand of 2013, the most beloved. I fell in love with the shapes of their clothes, with the exquiste materials used and with the innovative and captivating prints... It's Twisty Parallel Universe by Marianna Rosati, a real genius full of histrionic talent with a touch of elegance. Her garments are like a caresse on the body, they meld with the corporal figure like in a hug, they remain in harmony with it.
The fragmented vision of the world of Twisty totally impressed me because it really seems that the universe explodes and let half-view its own I overturned, in fact the skirt and the top seem a unique piece but are a fragmentation of a one.
This suit is pure perfection of harmonious shapes. It is my ideal suit, the one I will never separate myself from, the one that will become the best friend of the most important moment of my life.
Thank you for all of you who are voting this look in the contest here, your votes already made my heart winner <3

Look of the day: I'd rather dance with you

Hello beauties
how was your week-end going? I went to Milano for some some business meetings and then I went to see a friend of mine who ran the BabboRunning, that is a running where people wear Santa Claus hat and it's all dedicated to Christmas :DD It was sooo funny and cute!
On Friday, for an happy hour with a friend to celebrate that we have only a week ahead of work and then holiday, I wear one of the hottest trend of 2013... A pied de poule little coat by Chicnova paired with a faux fur collar, a beanie with ponpon, a LBD and my beloved Giancarlo Petriglia clutch.
Must confess that pied de poule is one of my fave trend of this year because I find it very sophisticated and versatile, perfect for day and night and for every kind of look, what about you?
Hope that you will like, let me know what you think!
If you have time, I will really appreciate if you can vote for me in this contest here , it will mean a lot to me <3 Thank you <3

Kiss me under the mistletoe

It's again that time of the year.
The Christmas atmosphere is fascinating and enchanted, down the streets lot of lights are shining and in every home appeared trees and decorations.
I'm like a child, thrilled and excited but sometimes crossed by a melanchonic feeling, do it happened to you too?
I'm really thankful about everything I have in my life and during Christmas I'm much more grateful because a warm home, people who love you and gifts are not things that should be taken for granted... I don't wanna make you sad but my Christmas-melancholy is almost due to these kind of thoughts.
Anyway, Christmas also means "It's Time To Party" and the greatest tee to wear are by Happiness, the funny and irreverent brand par excellence, that has dedicated to this festivity a special collection that you can find available online here.
I love wearing it outside but also at home because the cotton is very strong and so comfy and it always makes me smile when I'm watching it :D

Look of the day: Fairytale

Hello beauties
when these pictures were taken there was a lot of fog but when I saw them on the pc the fog seemed a soft cloud that has created an enchanted atmosphere, like in a fairytale and must say that it could be great to be in a forest :)
Like a modern princess, with a green dress from Front Row Shop matched with a cozy faux fur coat by Sisley and with the perfect pvc bag by Bibi Bag with a sentence on it that should become a mantra "Fashion fade, life is eternal!" by Mademoiselle Coco Chanel.
I love the pattern and the shape of this dress and the pvc, one the IT material of 2013, can be used also in Summer and Winter and for sure Bibi will be with me for a looooong time.
I love the transparent version but if you like colors, there are much more here. This bag is also a challenge because I generally carry with me the whole home, so if I don't wanna scary all the people around me I must learn to take with me less things :D
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Follow the flow of your passion

An enchanted old mansion, a not-so-Winter day with a sun able to warm heart, a professional photographer and a special outfit in soft tones by Onassis&Co.
It made me feel like a real princess, like in a dream, moments all dedicated to me. We need to take some time where we are the only character of our life, where the world stays outside and we enjoy every single moment of us.
Life goes and goes fast, is not the right time to take a break? A break from everything?
Think... Think about you for one moment, the world will go on the same :)
I took inspiration for this look and the location from Onassis&Co designer, Cosmina Suciu, a strong woman who really believes in her brand and who puts all her love, effort and passion in it... and like her, we have our dream in which we put all our courage and we must follow the flow of our passion to make it real.

Look of the day: Love has several shapes

Hello beauties
just few minutes before I was reading an article about love and about the fact that it can be found through several shapes. I totally agree because Love is universal but it never comes to us in a prearranged aspect or in a singular way... Yes because, for example, parents love their children, a boy loves his girlfriend, a girl loves her woman but also is love the feeling between two Real friends or with a person with his puppy and I really believe that also a stranger, who is sitting on a chair in a bar and is smiling to you, sends you love through his smile.
Don't you believe the same?
And to Love is dedicated my outfit, red and black. Sometimes love passes through darkness to reach the light and to become more intense than before... It's a fortuity that also the car and a man who was walking down the street had a red touch :D
Say hello to my new Liu-Jo coat, the comfy Castaner shoes and the so warm Manila Grace hat with ponpon... I have an obsession with hats with ponpon, must say that :D
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Every day is a new beginning

Hello beauties
sometimes I love to challenge myself in some kind of looks different from usual one, I think is a great thing reconsider ourselves under another aspect because through it we can learn several things that maybe before we would have never imagined.
Main character of this look is the uber-warm parka by Manila Grace, it was ages that I considered to treat myself with this garment but never find the perfect one for me because all the ones I saw were too sporty or too banal, this one has the perfect dose of elegance that I was searching about :)
I matched it with my brand new addiction in the shoes department by Raparo, from Marche with love and passion, that have a strong personality made to arise and are totally handmade, and with my important Giancarlo Petriglia pochette, brilliant, perfect for day and night and absolutely precious. High congratulations to these new talented Italian designer, spread their words because they deserve the greatest success.
And to be fashionable also in details, the Paul Stiven chewing-gum boxes are ideal to say good-bye to old paper ones and to make them very sophisticated, functional and long-lasting! A perfect Christmas gift!
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Jean Louis David Urban Care Express Therapy

Hello beauties
our body is our temple, nothing well said. We should take care of it because is the most precious thing that was given to us and, in order to preserve it in good health, we must eat correctly, drink a lot, do some sport and use the right products on it.
My hair care routine, for example, is full of Jean Louis David and I wanna share with you the new-born in JDL family... The Express Therapy spray mask!
This mask is perfect for all the women, like me, who run all day and always have limited time, even when they wash their hair, because it doesn't need rinsing. A complete treatment for every kind of hair, this spray mask 10 in 1 offers 10 benefits in only one action. It repairs damaged hair, restructures, nourishes, anti-frizz and radiance effects, it gives body, protects from heat, prevents splits, long lasting hairdo and it makes exteme combing.
I really like this mask, that should be vaporized on hand and uniformly distributed on all the lenght, it makes my hair softer, easy to comb and healthy.
Have you ever tried this product? Do you like too Jean Louis David products?

Look of the day: Be excited about everything

Hello beauties
Happy Decembre to you all guys, did it start in the right way?
My week-end was really relaxing, it snowed and so I enjoyed spending time near the fireplace with my doggie Audrey and loads of magazines and books.
Another week is started and I think that the best way to make it special is to be excited about everything... Yes everything. The smile of a person who walks down the streets, the sun that is shining and a couple who is sitting on a table of a bar, hand on hand, with the eyes that speak instead of words. 
Sometimes we forget to be happy about these lil' things, we take them for granted and it's a big mistake because if we aren't able to enjoy the little how we can do with big ones?
Think about it :)
Cold is coming so the best way to be cozy is to wrap ourselves in faux-fur K-Way jacket with neon detail and to keep the heart warm with a Giancarlo Petriglia bag. Last touch of color is given by my brand new pink pale Vogue sunnies.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Back to origin

Hello beauties
sometimes all we need is come back to origin, forget everything and just relax mind and body.
Few days ago I decided that it was that time. That time to dedicate all to myself and to all the things I love doing... Windows shopping, a tea with a friend, buying some gifts.
I wore a simple black skirt, black pumps, black beanie and a pop of color given by the uber warm K-Way jacket and my beloved Giancarlo Petriglia lil' bag.
K-Way was known worldwide for their garments against rain and now I'm really impressed by the fashionable turning point that the brand took. More fascinating and sinuous shapes, new materials involved and modern prints.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Biancolatte

Hello beauties
a special day spent in the most fashionable city ever, with beloved people, for business meetings and a late lunch in one of the most romantic places in Milano... Biancolatte.
I love this restaurant because it really makes me feel like I'm at home. Cozy atmosphere, warm and kind waitress and delicious sweets and food, Biancolatte is my traditional stop-over since it opened in so far 2008 and when it was only a Café-Ice cream parlor. 
It could be for breakfast, for a snack or for a real lunch but every time I'm there it really seems to be with your family at home, and it is impossible coming back without a Lov Organic can, a slice of cake or shabby-chic candies.
I wore my new Zara baroque trousers ( I'm obsessed with baroque trend ), the urban-chic Manila Grace blazer, that is jump on the first position of my fave blazers ever, and the hot LEROCK double-face jacket, definetely so versatile and sophisticated.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Look of the day: Find a way, don't find an excuse

Hello beauties
I really believe that the feeling that gives wearing a new look, different from your daily style, is really unique.
This is what happens to me the first time that I saw the zigzag dress and bomber by Aimo Richly, that play on the contrast between strong yellow and black and between the romanticism dress and the manhood bomber.
These knitted clothes are very chic, eye-catching and really well refined, with optical geometries very fresh and young.
Today Aimo Richly is synonymous of comfort, femininity and quality and the result is a collection easy-to-wear, for young women who refuse to make total looks and prefer to bring stuffs from their parents and boyfirends' wardrobes.
Believe and help new talented designers.
Hope that you will like it, let me kno what you think!

Look of the day: I did it my way

Hello beauties
in few cities near mine yesterday... Was snowing! Do you already know that, according to tradition, when you see the first snowflake you should express a desire? Prepare yourself :)
I like very much total black look, very basic but always so elegant, maybe break with softer colors tones. That's why I matched my new and beloved faux fur jacket by Manila Grace and the Sisley dress with smokey Prada bag, brown cuissardes rigorously with no heel and my embelisshed new Gazèl gloves.
In this time of the year I would love to be in Paris, that is like a second home for me, walking down Faubourg Saint-Honoré, having a hot tea with pastries at Angelina, taking a look at paintings near the Seine and finally having a dinner at the Latin Quarter. I love Paris all year long but next Chrismas the city really become poetics and with a fairytale atmosphere.

If you are like me, that after more 10 hours of work your sight is like Mr Magoo one, the right thing to do is bringing your best colorful glasses and put them on to relax eyes! My favourite come from the famous online shop Firmoo, the best place to puchase fashionable glasses and sunnies, you can see my other two pairs here and here.
I love colored and not small glasses and sunnies, I think that they are a way to complete an outfit, a sort of icing on the cake.

Eau de Beauté by Caudalie L'wren Scott limited edition

The beauty secrets are like chimera that every woman chases during her whole life. Some of them are ephemeral and useless but lot of them have their roots in ancient time where the care of the spirit and of the body were the most important things in life.
Egyptian were famous for their particular make-up, oil and cream while in Hungary Queen Isabella used a precious serum as youth elixir that allowed her to marry Poland king, more than 30 years younger than her.
In 1996, Mathilde Thomas, head and heart of Caudalie Paris, and dermatologist doctor Hertzog, who found in a book the original recipe of the elixir used by Queen Isabella, decided to give new life to the old formula and made it more current. So l'Eau de Beauté by Caudalie, inspired by a woman for women, became soon the beloved product of celebrities, designers and models who use it during day and night as make-up fixative and also to illuminate skin, to shrink pores and to refine lines.
The ingredients of this miraculous elixir are myrrh, rosemary essential oils, benzoino, lemon balm, peppermint, orange blossom, rose and grapes pulp so the result is a 99.4% natural beauty water.
For this year the famous ex-model and now designer L'wren Scott has created the new packaging of the bottle in limited edition, very essential and classy.
I tried it for long time and I can highly reccomend it to you because every time that I need to give a lashing of freshness and energy to my skin I vaporize it on my face and immediately skin is so relaxing, bright and soft at touch like the baby one.
I'm so happy to have found Eau de Beauté, it is the perfect ally for the wellness of my skin and of yours.

Look of the day: Ride like the wind

Hello lovelies
what happened when a glorious stylist as Christian Lacroix meets the party brand for excellence like Desigual? A particular and eye-catching collection takes life and the classic and eternal black and white combo has a new perspective with a modern touch given by the squared prints.
The coat and the dress seem like a unique garment, the print is continuing and this suit is very elegant but with a very innovative taste.
Christian Lacroix, with his essential talent, has created very sophisticated collections for the Spanish brand and I'm totally in love with them... I saw a preview of the Spring/Summer 2014 and believe me when I say that you'll appreciate every single cloth.
Felicia, the Onassis&Co bag, is became my new best friend and I can't separate myself from her precious leather and shape.

Sex, Fun & Love by Desigual

Hello beauties
how was your week-end going? Hope everything relaxing and happy.
Some of you already know that I have a big passion for fragrances and today I wanna write you about my latest addiction... The Desigual triptyque Sex, Fun & Love.
They come in a box similar to the take-away one and you open it... the experience begins and you are ready to take as yours the famous Desigual motto La Vida Es Chula!
The bottle is very hypnotic and psychedelic, with large colorful round circles that converge in the middle with the name of the fragrance that is the real essence. The top of the bottle is the real strong point of the package because is made with a patchwork fabric and realized in a particular way that allows to obtain every time a different cut so every bottle is unique.
"You don't emanate scent. You are in every air molecule. Hot, intense, provocative." studied by Daphne Bugey's nose, Sex is strong like red fruits mixed with rhubarb and soy, with hearts notes of tuberose, Sambac jasmine and grapefruit flowers and closed the fragrance note of woods, vanilla and musks.
"Here is the fragrance of happiness. Joyful, vital and soft." Fun was created by Christophe Raynaud, the Passion flower embraces notes of peony and violet with red blueberry, Nashi pear, white peach, sandal wood and Teak.
"Have anyone ever told you that you that you taste like a kiss? Juicy, sweet and tender." created by Fabrice Pellegrin, Love is a soft caress that immerses its roots in red blueberry and black currant, with heart notes of grapefruit, benzonio and orange-flower and as bottom notes praline, sandal and tonka fava bean.
My favourite one is Sex because I love intense and long lasting fragrance but I must say that all of them are very captivating and perfect for all seasons.
Did you ever smell them? Which is your favourite one?

Look of the day: You are gonna hear me Roar

Hello beauties
finally it's Friday and I'm more than happy that week-end is just around the corner because tomorrow I'll make an important shooting and can't wait to show you everything next week <3
Lot of you already know that I have a big passion for new designers who put all their effort and passion in what they do and for me is a big pleasure to introduce you to two of the most talented ones that we have here in Italy... Twisty Parallel Universe , a new view of a fragmented and variegated universe where the world explode and let half-view its own "I" overturned, and Giancarlo Petriglia, winner of Who is Next 2012 with his precious bags. I'm totally impressed by the pure design of the dress with dinosaurs and people and the perfection of the bag in every single detail.
A tribute to undisputed talents, to hystrionic genius and to the strenght of never giving up. 
Follow your dream.
Bisous

Look of the day: Felicia

Hello beauties
with this cold weather the most beautiful thing is to stay cozy and warm, maybe watching an old black and white movie sipping some hot tea under a duvet.
But... we must work so the most important thing is to find some clothes or accessories that are like a cuddle for ourselves also outside home :)
I found my special ones with Onassis&Co Felicia bag, so sophisticated and versatile with exquisite materials, and the glam-rock coat by LEROCK, that is double-face and very precious.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

October My Beauty Box

Hello beauties
cold is finally here and now more than ever we must preserve our skin from the bad weather and we should treat ourselves with something good.
The October edition of My Beauty Box is all dedicated to the five senses, to positivity and to the wellness of the person.
I found five interesting products on the inside that I'm already testing and now I wanna write you something about them and my first impressions!

Nuxe Nuxellance Jeunesse: after years of researches on mitochondrion and mitochondrial DNA, Nuxe launched, with ten licenses, this extraordinary anti-age fluid cream with extracts of passion flower, poppy and alcanna, that repairs the mitochondrial DNA revealing skin youth and brightness. Recommended, after days of use my skin is more soft at touch and optically relaxed.
EuPhidra Fard All Over Linea Chromie: this fard is composed by 9 little inlays in a unique box and can be used on face and eyes, dry or wet. The final result is really bright, pearly and soft. Recommended, I love the delicate texture and the shades perfect for my rosy complexion.
GCUBE Total Green Hydra Mask: for delicate hair, this hydrating mask is composed by ingredients obtained from plants and aloe with no parabens. It leaves hair soft and fluffy.
PIRAM Hand cream: ideal for cold weather, this hand cream with honey is perfect for dry, wrinkled and chapped hand, giving them a silky and soft appearance.
E.L.F. Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow: this duo eyeshadow can be used mixing the colors or individually, very intense and brilliant. Mine is gold and brown and I really like it.

Did you ever tried any of these products? Which is your favourite?

Look of the day: Me.You. Us.

Hello beauties
the cold is finally arrived here and it's time to take out all the coats from the wardrobe!
As English ladies do, on Sunday I went with a friend of mine to have a hot tea with some sweets and I wore for the first time my two new favorites babes :)
I truly adore the cozy and so warm coat by Manila Grace, I like the faux fur details on the front side and the wool checked print on the backside because they make it very particular and special. And that bag... The glamorous Felicia by Onassis&Co ( you can see the Eternelle model here ) is a precious and elegant bag with the perfect and eternal shap, ideal to be used in every occasion from the most informal to the most important one. In this period a bag should be an investment, and Felicia is definetely one of them under all the points of view.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Mantù press day

Hello beauties
how was your week-end going? Hope everything fine and relaxing!
Few days ago I had the chance and the big pleasure to go to Mantù press day. Before enter I already know that the Spring/Summer collection 2014 was beyond beautiful... And so it was.
Dzemal Mahmutovic, Mantù designer, for the new collection took inspirations from walking down Mantova streets at dawn, being impressed by contrast between the historic monuments and the surreal atmosphere of the first morning hours. Mantova seemed, at his eyes, animated by colors dim by the soft haze.
The things that I adore the most about S/S collection are the superimposition of fabrics and the delicate transparency that create new volumes in the most feminine way. Elegance and simplicity are the keywords, that find another confirmation in the palette of colors chosen. Opaque colors and platinum mean the solemnity of the time that goes by, yellow, fuxia and turquoise that give a touch of freshness and the black, synonymous of elegance par excellence.
I really like the soft but well defined shapes, the silent and eternal elegance and the fascinating volumes that characterized new Mantù collection, Dzemal Mahmutovic was able to create a new woman that has her roots in the past, in that sophistication today forgotten, but who wants to be in line with the times in fashion sector... A job worthy of a great and real artist. I would define Mantù woman as iconic, precious and extremely refined.
During the press day, Mantù hosted the exhibition of talented Gianni Osgnach, auto-producer designer who realizes one-off designs and small repeat productions.
Proudly made in Italy.

Look of the day: Path of leaves

Hello beauties
Fall is my favourite season... I adore the warm colors all around, the sound of leaves under shoes and the rays of light that seem to caresse you.
Yesterday was one of those days that the only thing I'd like to do was a walk, surrounded by nature, with my mom chatting about soft and frivolous matters while the sun is kissing skin and the mellow wind is hugging us.
And for a moment of cuddle nothing is better than wearing my fave fluffly blouse by one of the most elegant Italian brand Gazèl and my brand new and precious Eternelle bag by Onassis&Co.
As I wrote you in July here and here, Onassis&Co is an Italian-French luxury brand that, under the guide of talented designer Cosmina Suciu, is ready-to-become the undisputed leader in accessories sector. 
I'm very thankful to have the chance to carry my Eternelle in my daily life, as a best friend, with its graceful shape and its exquisite leather, it's the thing that reminds me, admiring it, that I never give up on my dreams... And you should do the same.

Manila Grace press day

Hello beauties
I'm just coming back home from Milano from a breathtaking Louis Vuitton event with my gals Dania & Carola and I couldn't be more satisfied about it <3 Can't wait to write you more!
Few days ago I had the big pleasure to attend to one of the greatest press day... The one by Manila Grace and E_Gò Sonia De Nisco.
A triumph of vivid colors, fascinating and soft shapes, fresh prints and precious accessories were the main characteres of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. 
The flawless little coats are my favourite pieces because they are very delicate, versatile and sophisticated but I also adore the structured booties in pvc and leather, the classy pointy pumps, the embellished and shiny pochette, the giant bag in soft and quiete shades and the colorful Oxford shoes, definetely one of the key stuff of the new S/S collection.
It's been ages that I love Manila Grace and I really would love to wear all these pieces right now, I love the high quality of the fabrics used and the huge attention in every single detail.

Look of the day: That special someone

Hello beauties
how is your week going? Hope full of special and particular news :)
Yesterday I had a business lunch and for the occasion I wore my brand-new faux fur waist-coat simply matched with a white blouse, a pearl and gold bel, ankle pants and my hundstooth heels by & Other Stories, a shop that I love because is full of eye-catching stuffs. First time out for my best birthday present, the Prada bag <3
For a bussiness meeting I think that the best thing to do is choosing a simple but chic look, not too exagerate but not too banal and "anonymous", what about you?
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Avenue Pr press day

Hello beauties
another breathtaking press day that I had the pleasure to go to was the Avenue Pr one.
Full of new talented designers such as  Giancarlo PetrigliaNahoorK-Way, DROMeSupergaTwisty Parallel UniverseCarla PerrettiGreviRaparoAimo RichlyVirgina Von Zu Furstenberg  and glasses giant Luxottica Group, in this loft, with a charismatic interior design, I clearly breath a deep Fashion air with F Capital letter, very fascinating and passionate.
I'm so impressed by the detailed and precious bags created by Giancarlo Petriglia, winner of Who is on Next 2012, that are the real main characters of any outifts, by the vibrant, poetical and sometimes romantic leather used by DROMe and by histrionic, visionary and a pop of past melted with future of Twisty Parallel Universe.
As I told you several times, today new designers will be the big names of tomorrow and they need all our support because it's easy to invest in famous brands but I think it's more beautiful to show some love to these guys who put all their passion, effort and love in their stuffs.
Believe and help new designers.

Look of the day: Cirque du soleil

Hello beauties
how was your week-end going? Hope everything was good, I enjoyed four days of vacations and now I'm ready for the week ahead :)
One of the greatest trips of my life was in New York City and one of the best memories I have about this city is when I watched a performance by Cirque du Soleil, these guys are so talented and artistic that I stayed all time with mouth opened like children!
So when I first saw this dress by Desigual inspired by Cirque du Soleil collection I really fell in love with it because it reminds me my time spent in that theatre and it gave me an immediate state of happiness.
I love how detailed and precious is the portrait of one of the perfomer, it seems so real.
Hope that you will like it, let me know what you think!

Gas Jeans press day

Hello beauty
how did you spend your Halloween? More trick or treat?
Another press day that I have had the pleasure to attend was the Gas Jeans one, dedicated to Spring/Summer 2014.
The main theme of this collection was the sea, that can be seen through every single garment. Nautical suits, sporty and glamorous clothes inspired by boat and cruise life and also with a vintage taste that takes inspiration from dock workers uniforms never forgetting the tranquillity of beach days.
The palette of colors is composed by red, white and blue navy with seaside prints, such as knots, stripes and sea animals, obviously lot of denim, and the final effects are very technical or "experienced".
A fresh and comfortable collection perfect to live Summer days with fashion, elegance and a pop of fun.
