Into the white



Sometimes it happens...we end up in the attic trying to put some order among all our stuff ...we find the wooden old trunk of our grandmother, it's a little tarnished by time but still wonderful.

Easter Monday in open country



Well i have to admit it... as i write this post i'm eating one of the last slices left of casatiello (an Easter Neapolitan food...very very high-calorie)...it's clear that i'm spreading the crumbs so it would be useless to deny it!
After these long days spent at the table  (what do you want me to do about it...i heroically sacrificed myself and tasted all i could!) i promise i'll work at detox! :-P
As  for yesterday i spent an amazing day with my friends and i hope that you too spent these days full of friends, food, games and laughter!!!
Here you are some outfits pics!
p.s. A special thanks to our patient photographer Jessica! =D

Keep your feet on the ground!



The Italian Renaissance with the discovery of Greek and Latin classics ,with its revolutionary ideas and its uncertainties , with festivals, tournaments, games and dances which entertained Italian lords and their courts...this is the vibrant atmosphere during which flats make their appearance.

J'aime mon carré!



Finally winter is behind us and takes away with it snow, persistent rain and damp which is so harmful to our hair...therefore we can put in our boxes woolen scarves which protected and warmed us in recent months and we can pull out chiffon or silk scarves in assorted prints: polka dots, stripes, circles, spots, flowers and so on...

From trenches to catwalks




The myth begins in 1901, when the UK defence minister  asked to Burberry factory to realize a trench coat in order to protect British soldiers from mud and rain.

We'll be right back after the commercial break!







Commercial breaks…endless minutes which interrupt our favorite movies and serials in the thick of them …we try to escape them with the help of zapping but often our attempts are unsuccessful.

Blond Fever




"Over-the-top glamour is our speciality ... The 'Blond' aesthetic and themes hark back to a time when women dressed to kill, like the golden age of Hollywood. Now there is a real need for fantasy and escape from the everyday, and elaborate costume plays a huge role in this. Life is theatre for us and we want to bring a bit of that into everyone's life."

What? I am good girl!





The dress is Chanel
The shoes YSL
The bag is Dior
Agent Provocateur
My address today, LA by the way
Above Sunset Strip, the hills all the way
My rings are by Webster
It makes the heads twirl
They all say, "Darling, what did you do for those pearls?"
What?! I am a good girl !

Je t'aime...moi non plus



Put together on the same plane a talented actress and singer: Jane Birkin and the inspiration of an artistic director: Jean Louis Dumas…the result??? The legendary Birkin…a bag or more exactly the bag that is haunting the dreams of millions of fashion victims around the world since 1984.

Color block is the talk of the town


Password: Color blocking!!!


Gucci


A cocktail of colors and patterns is going to inflame our spring gracing the covers of glossy fashion magazines, flooding our favorite shops and our closets.
It's time to say goodbye to our
 comfortable and boring gray cardigans at last and to put them in the  most remote little corner of our drawers…it’s time to say hello to new precious colors :emerald green, yellow, hot pink, blue but also jade, amethyst, orange and why not... a touch of gold!
The most important fashion designers dye
 clothes and accessories such as canvas with a palette of vibrant ,fluo and bright colors to wear together... forgetting the traditional chromatic rules (oh no what will happen to me obsessed with rigorous color matching!?!? Hihi).
I can’t wait to be  swept by this wave of colors and what about you???


Parola d’ordine : Color blocking!!!

Un cocktail di colori e fantasie accende la nostra primavera conquistando le copertine delle riviste di moda più patinate ,invadendo i negozi e i nostri armadi.
È arrivato il momento di direi addio ai nostri rassicuranti e monotoni maglionicini grigi e di riporli nell’angolino più remoto dei nostri cassetti per far posto a nuovi preziosissimi colori: verde smeraldo, giallo, fuxia  , blu ma anche verde giada ,ametista , arancione e perché no…un tocco di oro!
Gli stilisti tingono come tele vestiti ed accessori con una tavolozza dai toni vibranti, vitaminici e vivaci…colori da indossare tutti insieme appassionatamente abbandonando le tradizionali regole cromatiche (oh no che ne sarà di me ossessionata dagli abbinamenti precisini!?!? Hihi) .
Non vedo l’ora di farmi travolgere da questa ondata di colore e voi???

Hello world this is me!

"Some people dream of having a big swimming pool. With me, it's closets."
(Audrey Hepburn)
Everytime I walk into a store i feel like a child in a candy store... the eyes wide open and the heart beating faster while your hands touch the fabric and feel the roughness of a pair of jeans that will be your best friends in your daily adventures, the softness of a sweater that will wrap you in cold winter days and the softness of a silk blouse which suggests Chloé’s sophisticated collections... while an explosion of colors and patterns grab your attention ...and in a flash you’re out of the shop with a huge smile on your face, with several shopping bags in your hands and your account more empty!
the magic begins in the shop and our poor closets are obliged to bear the weight of years and years of crazy and exciting purchases…so why not to share with you what's in my closet and most of all what I’d like to have in it?!


I vestiti sono una bella passione. Alcuni sognano una grande piscina…io preferisco gli armadi!
(Audrey Hepburn)
Entrare in un negozio e sentirsi ogni volta come una bambina in un negozio di caramelle…gli occhi sbarrati e il cuore che batte più forte mentre con le mani sfiori i tessuti e senti la ruvidezza di un jeans che ti accompagnerà nelle tue avventure quotidiane, la morbidezza di un maglione che ti avvolgerà nelle fredde giornate invernali e la delicatezza di una camicetta di seta che ricorda le raffinate collezioni di Chloé …mentre un’esplosione di colori e fantasie cattura la tua attenzione…e senza nemmeno accorgertene ti ritrovi fuori dal negozio con un sorriso stampato sul viso ,con varie shoppers tra le mani e con il conto in banca un po’ più “magro”!
È proprio nei negozi che inizia la magia e i nostri poveri armadi reggono il peso di anni e anni di acquisti folli ed entusiasmanti quindi perché non condividere con voi quello che c’è nel mio armadio ma soprattutto quello che vorrei ci fosse?!
