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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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)

It was pretty hard to pick just some dresses but I tried to make a choice according to my personal taste and trying to show you different styles. I highly recommed to you all to visit the website for your personal selection.

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

Enjoy!!!

Prom Season!

Since the first time I saw one on some tv show I’ve loved proms so much. I feel like there’s something magical in the whole process of searching for the perfect dress, buying a new pair of fabulous shoes, choosing the right jewels and finding the best hairdo, makeup and nailpolish to complete the look. Everything about this event looks so exciting to me and I’m pretty envy about all those girls that right now are planning their own proms.

Sadly in Italy we don’t have such a beautiful tradition but this has never stopped me by dreaming of ball gowns, scented flowers and unforgettable nights. The more prom season gets closer the more I linger on sites who sell dreamy dresses. I spent hours on http://www.victoriasdress.co.uk/ between shiny beads, embroidered flowers, fluffy chiffon and sophisticated lace. If you’re lucky enough to be searching for your prom dress you should check it out: you can find short or long dresses, different silhouettes for different body shapes, various necklines, many colours and styles. Plus on these days they’re doing a special offer and most dresses are highly discounted.

I think that every prom plan should start with the search for the right dress and I’m sure this site will help you with its many different beautiful choices!

A girl should choose her own dress according to her personal style and her body shape. Every girl knows her body features and qualities and should emphasize what she likes the most about herself. Dresses can hide imperfections pretty good just focusing the attention on somewhere else. So if you prefer your top half instead of your bottom half you should choose a dress with a richly detailed top and a long soft skirt. If  you want a more feminine look and you have an athletic, toned body you should wear a dress that emphasizes curves and defines the waist. Even if I prefer long dresses I suggest you short ones if you have long, beautiful legs. At the same time if you don’t like to show your arms you can find long sleeve dresses. Necklines are very important too: they can frame greatly your decollete, emphasizing it and even making it looks more generous (sweetheart neckline) or just wrapping it softly. In matter of style you can really find everything you need: you can look like a real princess in a huge gown or stick to your rock soul in a black lace dress with a studded belt.

Finding something you like and that fits you is very important to enjoy this experience and feel comfortable and stunning at the same time. There aren’t written rules: you can wear every color, even the boldest one, every lenght and style. What really matters is how you feel and what makes you feel better.

I picked my favourite prom dresses just to dream a little more and to share them with you all. It was really hard to choose only one out of each category because there’s plenty I’d love to wear.

Short Prom Dresses category:

I’m a huge fan of chiffon but what I love the most about this dress is the embroidered top. The see-through effect and the flowers embroidered on it make this top, and the whole dress, girly and fancy at the same time. I also like the beaded belt on it.

Long Prom Dresses:

I know it looks like a wedding dress in this color but I like it so much that I had to show it to you all. I like everything about this dress: the beaded sleeves, the waist, the neckline and the fabric. It looks so light and comfortable but at the same time really elegant.

Cheap Prom Dresses:

Like I said before  I prefer long dresses on occasions like these so here’s another one. I picked it because I love the way it emphasizes the waist. I also like the neckline and the super light fabric. Finally the shape of the skirt is one of my favourite and the pink shade is just gorgeous.

I wish you all to find the perfect dress and to enjoy the search as much as the prom itself!
