Certainties 


When it comes to fashion I like to play with my style, to mix and match and to try new things. I also love to pick my daily outfits according to the mood and since it varies a lot so does my style! For all these reasons I can go from the most comfortable, casual outfits to the classiest ones but there’s one thing that never change and has stayed exactly the same for years now: my love for lace tights. No matter how many of them I already own, there will always be space for another pair! 

Tights: Calzedonia 
Nella moda, come nella vita, sono molte le cose che mi incuriosiscono ed appassionano e quando si tratta di vestiti ed accessori non mi tiro mai indietro se si tratta di sperimentare e mischiare le carte in tavola. Spesso scelgo i miei outfit in base all’umore del giorno e siccome questo varia molto, e velocemente, lo stesso fanno i miei look. Per tutte queste ragioni mi piace passare dagli outfit più sportivi e comodi a quelli più sofisticati, a volte nel giro di poche ore. La moda é in divenire ed insieme ad essa il mio stile, ma in mezzo a tanta trasformazione c’è comunque spazio per alcuni punti fermi. Tra questi, le calze ricamate. Non importa che nel mio cassetto delle calze non ci sia più posto, ci sarà sempre spazio per un nuovo paio di calze!

Calze: Calzedonia

New things, old favs


Making the best of the mild weather we’ve had lately in sheer tights and new dresses. And hopefully smiles! 

Dress: Calliope 


Freddo mite e giornate assolate significano calze velate e vestiti nuovi. E sorrisi, se tutta va bene!

I tried to make the best of the gloomy days we’ve had lately, wearing tights for a bit longer than I expected. These one are my spring version of the classic brocade I love so much, in a sexy chiffon version more suitable for warmer seasons. I paired them with a skater dress and a leather jacket for a girly outfit with an edgy hint. 

Tights: Calzedonia 

Dress: Terranova


Il tempo uggioso degli ultimi giorni mi ha dato l’opportunità di indossare più a lungo outfit non proprio primaverili e, soprattutto, le calze. Quelle nelle foto sono la mia versione primaverile del broccato, soltanto in una versione più leggera, di chiffon, e con qualche fiorellino. Io le ho abbinate ad un abito skater nero ed una giacca di pelle borchiata, per un look femminile con un tocco rock. 

Abito: Terranova 

Calze: Calzedonia 

Festive

Halloween has come and gone with all its (not so) scary costumes and bold makeup/hairstyles/nailarts and even if I really enjoy it now I’m definitely looking forward to my favourite time of the year: Christmas! The festive season is coming … Continua a leggere

Express your beauty!

A couple of days ago I went out to take a walk in the sun and I came back home with a piece of summer in my shopping bag.

Un paio di giorni fa sono uscita per una passeggiata al sole e sono tornata a casa portando con me un pezzo d’estate.

Mini Mcbee Hawaian

                     Mini Mcbee Hawaian

I’m talking about this beautiful bag from Desigual in a delicate flowery print/light brown suede combo. I really love the shape and size of this bag and the way it combines spring shades and summer flowers. I’m pretty sure it will match perfectly my favorite pastel pieces both for next trips and everyday life.

Sto parlando di questa meravigliosa borsa Desigual, impreziosita dal bellissimo abbinamento primaverile tra la stampa floreale delicata ed i dettagli scamosciati marrone chiaro. La forma e le dimensioni mi hanno colpito a prima vista, ma a conquistarmi definitivamente è stata la combinazione tra gli elementi primaverili, i colori soprattutto, e quelli estivi, in particolare i fiori hawaiani. Sono sicura che questa borsa sarà perfetta sia per i miei prossimi viaggi che per la vita, frenetica, di tutti i giorni.

It was pretty hard to leave the store with just one piece because the whole new collection is awesome. It has got everything I love in it: flowers, hearts, lace details, bold colors, boho hints, ethnic elements and the signature, colorful Desigual prints.

É stato molto difficile lasciare il negozio con un unico pezzo perchè l’intera nuova collezione è davvero mervaigliosa. C’è praticamente tutto ciò che mi piace: fiori, cuori, dettagli in pizzo, colori brillanti, stampe boho, elementi etnici e le inconfondibili, coloratissime stampe Desigual.

If you’re looking for the perfect summer dress I’m sure you’ll find it through so many different styles, lenghts and prints. 

Se state cercando il vestito estivo perfetto sono sicura che troverete quello che fa per voi tra le infinite opzioni di stili, lunghezze e stampe.

The fancy ruffles on the skirt give an extra touch of playful girliness to this beautiful dress perfect for both day and night. I also like the colorful hawaian flowers printed on it and the shade of blue, one of my favorite colors for Spring/Summer. I’d pair it with wedges and a clutch in some bold color. 

Le balze sbarazzine sulla gonna aggiungono un tocco di giocosa femminilità a questo vestito, perfetto sia per il giorno che per la sera. Mi piacciono moltissimo anche i fiori hawaiani e la tonalità di blu, uno dei miei colori preferiti soprattutto per la primavera, ma anche per l’estate. Io indosserei con questo abito delle zeppe ed una pochette dai colori brillanti.

          White

Here’s another thing I love to wear on my dresses, tops, skirts and even nails: daisies! This dress is really cute also in white (here) and to me it would be perfect on a sunny day in the city. I’d pair it with ballerina flats, a small crossbody bag and a messy bun.

Ecco un’altra cosa che adoro indossare su top, vestiti, gonne e perfino le unghie: le margherite! Questo miniabito è molto carino anche nell’altro colore, il bianco (qui), e penso che sarebbe perfetto per una giornata indaffarata ed assolata in città. Lo abbinerei a delle ballerine, una piccola borsa a tracolla e uno chignon spettinato.

This could easily be the ideal dress for spring: the light fabric and the 3/4 sleeves make it perfect for these sunny, warm days opposite to cooler nights. I really like the tribal print, the embroidery on the neck and the black & white combo. I’d pair this dress with flat sandals and a messy braid.

Trovo che questo vestito sia assolutamente perfetto per la primavera: il tessuto leggero e le maniche a 3/4 lo rendono ideale per queste giornate assolate e calde, ma con repentini cambi di temperatura dalla sera in poi. Adoro la stampa tribale, il ricamo sulla scollatura e la combinazione di colori, un bianco/nero intramontabile e classico, ma qui decisamente rivisitato. Io abbinerei questo abito a sandali rasoterra e ad una treccia spettinata.

          Idoia

This dress is a bit different from the others I picked and this is one of the reasons why I love it. The other ones are its beautiful shape, the gorgeous shade of blue and the embroidery on the skirt. Once again I think it would be perfect both for day and night. I would pair it with colorful jewels and a clutch.

Questo vestito è leggermente diverso dagli altri che ho selezionato e proprio questa è una delle ragioni per cui mi piace tanto. Le altre sono la forma, secondo me bellissima e molto femminile, la splendida tonalità di blu elettrico e il disegno su un lato della gonna. Ancora una volta penso che sarebbe perfetto sia per il giorno che per la sera. Lo abbinerei a gioielli colorati e ad una pochette.

Sammi

        Sammi

Here’s my favourite minidress for summer! I’d wear it on my swimwear just to go to the beach or to have a drink on the seaside at sunset. According to the occasion I would pair it with colorful wedges or rubber flipflops and a small clutch or a big straw bag. 

Eccoci arrivati al mio miniabito preferito per l’estate. Io lo indosserei sopra al costume per andare al mare o per un cocktail sul lungomare, magari al tramonto. A seconda dell’occasione lo abbinerei a delle zeppe colorate e ad una piccola pochette o a delle semplicissime infradito di gomma e ad una grande borsa di paglia.

         Laurins

This pretty top would be perfect to add a touch of playfulness and originality to a pair of plain black leggings. I would pair it with red accessories in a casual, girly outfit.

Questo top carinissimo sarebbe perfetto per aggiungere un tocco di divertente originalità ad un semplicissimo paio di leggings neri. Lo abbinerei, inoltre, ad accessori rossi per un outfit casual e femminile.

Tobago

       Tobago

I really like the print and color of this beautiful top and I can see myself wearing it on some dreamy beach after the sunset, maybe during a party full of people and music. I would pair it with a long, black skirt and hoop earrings. 

Di questo top mi piacciono molto la stampa ed il colore, riesco facilmente ad immaginare di indossarlo su qualche spiaggia da sogno, magari dopo il tramonto e durante un party pieno di persone e buona musica. Io lo indosserei con una gonna lunga, nera, e orecchini a cerchio.

         Werk

This is probably my favorite top with its beautiful, colorful flowers and the lace detail. White is the perfect color for spring and even more for summer and that’s why I would wear this top on tanned skin and pair it with ripped shorts or jeans and flat sandals. 

Probabilmente questo top è il mio preferito, con in suoi bellissimi fiori colorati ed i dettagli in pizzo. Il bianco è il colore perfetto per la primavera e ancora di più per l’estate, per questo lo abbinerei ad una bella abbronzatura, ad un paio di pantaloncini o jeans strappati ed infine a dei sandali bassi.

         Eva

Baggy pants in colorful prints and light fabric are a must have for me during spring and especially summer. They’re the perfect alternative to dresses on those really hot days that call for popsicles, water and fresh clothes. I usually pair them with flat sandals and big earrings.

I pantaloni stampati e leggeri, a vita bassa, sono un capo irrinunciabile per me durante la primavera e, ancor di più, l’estate. Rappresentano l’alternativa perfetta ai vestiti durante quelle giornate afose e torride in cui gli abiti leggeri e freschi sono irrinunciabili tanto quanto i ghiaccioli, l’ombra ed i litri d’acqua. Solitamente li abbino a sandali bassi e grandi orecchini.

Anna

Here’s a pair of sandals that has got what every pair of sandals should have. Let’s start with the heels, high but not too much, and go on with the ankle strap, the white dots and flowers decorations. They’re girly, fancy, with a pop of color even if they’re black and perfect for almost any occasion.

Adoro, adoro, adoro questi sandali! Più li guardo più me ne innamoro! Hanno praticamente tutto quello che un paio di sandali dovrebbe avere. A partire dai tacchi, alti ma non troppo e soprattutto comodi per via della forma, continuando con il cinturino alla caviglia e finendo con i pois ed i fiori. Sono femminili, divertenti, con un tocco di colore nonostante il nero e perfetti praticamente per ogni occasione.

Arco Iris

        Arco Iris

On spring I wear sneakers like these almost every day. That’s why I like to own more than one pair and to style them differently anytime. They’re really versatile so you can wear them with a short skirt, a light minidress or with jeans. I’d pair these ones with white skinny pants and colorful accessories. 

Durante la primavera indosso sneakers leggere, di tela, come queste quasi ogni giorno. Per questo mi piace averne più di un paio, per poter variare e creare di volta in volta stili diversi. Sono molto versatili e per questo possono essere abbinate quasi a tutto: abiti casual corti, gonne, jeans, leggings. Io abbinerei quelle in foto con pantaloni skinny bianchi ed accessori colorati.

Floral

          Floral

Here’s what I consider a summer must have in the shoes department. Wedges are so comfy but with all the benefits you usually get from heels. Most of all I like wearing them with sundresses for a fancy, girly result. 

Eccoci a quello che considero un assoluto must have estivo nel reparto scarpe: le zeppe. Sono comode, ma con i benefici dei tacchi alti, perfette per il giorno e per la sera, femminili senza risultare impegnative. Io ne ho moltissime e mi piace abbinarle soprattutto ad abitini prendisole, per un risultato femminile e divertente.

My love for Desigual started a long time ago with their gorgeous bags. So it was kind of hard to choose only one bag when I bought my last one and that’s why it would be even harder to pick only some from the many on the site. I tried to make a selection but it was impossible so I decided to pick some different styles to show to you but I really can’t say they’re my favorite because I do love every single piece. This is also the reason why I started this post talking of one of them: I wanted to introduce you to this joyful brand the same way I was introduced to it. It was an unexpected discovery but it opened a whole world of colors, textures, fabrics and so much more. I’m talking about the ideas and ideals spread by this brand, the beautiful messages in the ads (have you seen the latest commercial?), the positive messages and vibes behind clothes, the joyful parties during the fashion shows.. ‘Cause every time you wear a piece from Desigual you’re more than fashionable, you’re feeling good in your own skin, you’re expressing your precious, unique beauty. 

Il mio amore per Desigual è iniziato parecchio tempo fa proprio con una delle loro meravigliose borse. É stato difficile sceglierne una l’altro giorno e sarebbe ancora più difficile riuscire a fare una selezione dal sito, per questo ho pensato di mostrarvi soltanto un paio di stili diversi senza, però, eleggere una preferita: un’impresa praticamente impossibile considerando che amo ogni singolo pezzo senza esclusione alcuna. Ho scelto di iniziare questo post proprio con una borsa perchè volevo introdurvi al mondo Desigual esattamente nello stesso modo in cui vi sono stata introdotta io. É stata una scoperta inaspettata, una piacevole sorpresa che mi ha aperto un mondo intero fatto di colori audaci, tessuti e stampe originali e moltissime altre cose. Mi riferisco in particolare alle idee e gli ideali promossi da questo brand, la filosofia dietro le campagne pubblicitarie (avete visto l’ultimo spot?), i messaggi positivi dietro ogni singolo pezzo di ogni collezione, i parti colorati e gioiosi durante le sfilate.. perchè indossare un capo Desigual significa molto di più che essere alla moda, significa amarsi per quello che si è, nella propria irripetibile bellezza.

Prom Queen

Spring has finally sprung and with the warmer sun and the colorful, scenty flowers it has also come that time of the year to celebrate all the work and efforts made during a long winter. It’s time to leave all the coats, scarves, gloves and oversized sweaters for some pretty puffy skirts, elegant lace, shiny beads and romantic chiffon. It’s time to dare and dream, to dance all night long, to share pictures and unforgettable moments with friends. It’s prom time!

Like I said before in Italy we don’t have anything similar to prom but I’ve always dreamed to take part in one and with the whole Cinderella fever lately it got even worse! I’d love to go shopping for the perfect dress, to try on many different styles, to choose the perfect shoes and purse and to match my outfit with the makeup and hair. I would probably enjoy all this prep part more than the prom itself! Probably because it would be great to linger over gorgeous, formal dresses like the ones I’ve found on one of my favourite sites, www.promtimes.co.uk. I’m sure you’ll find it really useful too with all the options about fabrics, colors, styles, lenghts.

I couldn’t resist so I made a search through their fabulous, dreamy dresses and I found out that I’d probably have some issues choosing just one dress but since I’m not going to any prom I can pick more than one dress with no trouble. Here are my favourites!

Long Dresses (here)

lf3300_6__1

Romantic Look

I really like the shade of pink, the fabric and the delicate, embellished detail. I’d pair this romantic dress with some bold, sparkling shoes. I’d wear a natural makeup and I’d choose something similar to the bun in the pic for my hair.

Spring Shades

Spring Shades

Here’s another colour I really like: yellow! This pastel shade allows you to wear a bold colour without risking too much. Plus if you’re still tanned from the last spring break you’ll look great in this shade. Once again I’d pair this modern, original dress with sparkling shoes. I’d go for nude lips and cat eyes and I’d style my hair in a high braid.

Short Dresses (here)

Black Drama

Black Swan

Lace has always been and always will be my favourite. So here’s what I call a “classic”: black lace. I do love everything about this dress: the shape of the skirt that reminds me of a tutu, the black bow on the waist, the see-through effect on the shoulders, the open back. I think all these elements make it really elegant but wearable at the same time. I’d pair it with nude shoes, smokey eyes and natural lips. A messy, side bun would be my choice for the hairstyle.

Vintage Dress (here)

Haute Couture

Here’s another nude/black combo but this time in a long, vintage dress. The lace details on the see-through sleeves and skirt, the shape and lenght, the nude belt and inserts: everything in this sophisticated dress says haute couture. It’s what I love about it, the elegant, timeless attire combined with modern, young elements. I’d pair this dress, like the one before, with nude shoes, smokey eyes and natural lips. I would wear a beaded headband in the hair to complete the look.

Pink chiffon/black lace combo.. with a twist!

Pink chiffon/black lace combo…                  …with a twist!

Another pink/black combo from the vintage department but this time in a short dress with a modern twist. The embellished black lace on the top and the original shape and lenght of the skirt are my favourite elements in this dress that combines perfectly classic and modern features for a girly, fresh result. I’d pair the dress with beaded or black lace shoes and bubblegum pink lips. A high bun would be perfect to complete the outfit.

Red Dresses (here)

PD0919-0

            Queen of Hearts

A beautiful red dress with a surprise on the back. I’d wear it with some daring shoes, probably in gold, big earrings and hair up to show the wonderful see-through lace on the back. An elegant gown with a feminine hint for a modern queen of hearts.. and possibly prom queen!

Blue Dresses (here)

lf3242_10__1

        Goddess of the Seas

This dress really impressed me at first glance. What I like the most is its original top with the blue gems and the whole embroidery. It makes me think of the deep waters of the ocean with its lively world, vivid colors and dancing waves. That’s why I would pair it with a fishtail braid, silver shoes and glittery eyes.

I hope you’ll enjoy the search for the perfect dress as much as the prom itself and I’m pretty sure www.promtimes.co.uk will be a part of your unforgettable success. Because if there can be only one prom Queen with these wonderful dresses every girl can be a fashion Queen!

Dresses Wonderland!

Lately I’ve been searching a lot for some elegant dresses. It’s that time of the year full of festive parties with co-workers, friends and relatives and I’m more than glad to take the chance to wear fancy, sparkling outfits. 

Just like every month and season lace is still my favourite both for sophisticated and relaxed occasions. I love keeping it classy and classic with black lace but on these days I also like daring with colours and wearing it in other shades, especially red and green of course! Chiffon is also a good choice for me especially in puffy, short skirts and fancy dresses. 

I did many researches in stores, obviously, and even more on the internet and that’s where I found an interesting, useful, pretty site: http://www.promtimes.co.uk.There are so many options, styles, colours and fabrics that you just can’t leave it without finding exactly what you were looking for. And even more. There are so many choices for different occasions and body shapes and the most of the items are highly discounted.

In this huge offer I did a little selection and I’d like to share it with you all.

Let’s start with something classic on this time of the year: red dresses! (here)

Here’s one of my favourite looks from the last days.
I wore a bikini in brown and cream crochet with some golden hints and paired it with a sleeveless minidress in light brown. I completed the look with some animalier flip flops.
An unusual safari look to face the jungle-beach!

Bikini: Tezenis
Dress: Intimissimi

Ecco uno dei miei look preferiti degli ultimi giorni.
Ho indossato un bikini marrone con crochet color crema e dettagli dorati e l’ho abbinato ad un miniabito a fascia in una tonalità di marrone più chiara. Ho completato il look con un paio di infradito con dettagli animalier.
Un insolito look safari per affrontare la giungla della spiaggia!
