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!

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.

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.

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)

        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)

Every single piece is available in more than 20 colours and they ship worldwide. 

Enjoy!!!

Sangria (red) love!

I’ve been searching for this nailpolish for months but it had gone sold out so quickly that I just abandoned the idea to buy it. Until I found it unexpectedly some days ago. And on sale!

I wanted it so badly because it’s the perfect wine red, that “sangria” red perfect for this fall/winter. So I had really high expectations on the final result but I have to say it was even better than I expected. It’s exactly the shade of red I’ve been searching for months and I’ve always wanted.

It took two coats for this gelly, super glossy result and it definitely didn’t need any top coat on it. I think it’s really sophisticated, elegant but wearable all at once and I really recommend it to you if you’re a burgundy lover (or should I say obsessed?) like me!

Nailpolish: Pupa Lasting Color Gel in 92 (Paris Experience collection)

Ho cercato questo smalto per mesi, ma ne avevano venduto ogni singolo esemplare subito dopo l’uscita, così mi ero arresa all’idea che non lo avrei trovato. Finché non l’ho trovato, del tutto inaspettatamente, qualche giorno fa. E scontato!

Lo volevo così tanto perché é il perfetto color vinaccia, quel rosso sangria così in voga quest’anno da diventare colore dell’autunno/inverno.

Ovviamente avevo grandi aspettative sul risultato finale, ma devo ammettere che le ha addirittura superate. É esattamente la tonalità di rosso che cercavo da mesi e che ho sempre voluto.

Ci sono volute due passate per questo finish brillante, glossato, perfettamente coprente. E non c’é voluto neanche il top coat! Lo trovo molto sofisticato ed elegante, estremamente portabile e versatile. Be lo raccomando se, come me, amate il borgogna (la mia é più un’ossessione, lo so!).

Pin Up Feeling

20140724-204122-74482561.jpg

Here’s what I wore to go to the beach today.
I’ve bought many skirts like these in the last months and even if I usually don’t like high waists I had to make an exception for them.
The one I wore today is probably my favourite with its tiny, pink flowers. I paired it with a plain cotton tank in green (my favourite shade on this summer).

When my mom saw me she said I looked like I pin up and even if I hadn’t thought about it I like the idea so much that I used it in the title.

I’m still getting into the real summer mood but girly, colorful outfits like these are really helping through these cloudy days!

Tank: Calliope
Skirt: Tally Weijl

Oggi finalmente le nuvole ci hanno dato una tregua (illusoria, ma meglio di niente!) ed io ne ho approfittato per godermi la spiaggia poco affollata.
La gonna che ho indossato é una di molte simili che ho comprato egli ultimi mesi. Normalmente non amo i capi a vita bassa, ma per queste gonne ho scelto di fare un’eccezione perché mi piacciono molto.
Quella che ho indossato oggi é probabilmente la mia preferita, con i suoi piccoli fiori rosa. L’ho abbinata ad una canottiera semplice di cotone nel mio verde preferito per questa stagione.

Mia mamma quando mi ha visto ha detto che sembravo una pin up ed anche se non ci avevo pensato affatto l’idea mi é piaciuta talmente tanto che l’ho usata per il titolo del post.

Non sono ancora entrata del tutto nel clima estivo, per qualche strano motivo, ma questi outfit pieni di colori e femminili mi stanno decisamente portando nella giusta direzione.

Canotta: Calliope
Gonna: Tally Weijl

To the beach!

Finally today I was able to go to the beach and enjoy some sun and crystal clear water before it started raining. I wore a new bikini with a bandeau top and my new dress from H&M. I bought this … Continua a leggere
