Mini Bags Euphoria

When it comes to spring bags, size does really matter. During the winter I alternate between large comfy bags  and sleek crossbodies, but this doesn’t happen with the hot weather. It seems to me as logical consequence that when I start to take off layer after layer the warm clothing, I need also to reduce the size of my bags. No more clumsy shopping bags – even though I do not particularly like them all year long- but tiny chic shoulder bags. Besides, to turn those mini bags into a statement they have to be colorful. And, even if I have recently started to fight my inner struggle to wear just white, black and denim and to dare wearing bright colours and prints – yeah, normcore lead me to the right opposite direction – then everyone else can do it. Since at the moment I just own several black or leather shoulder bags I unfortunately am still looking for my perfect colorful mini bag that isn’t worth like unicorn puppies. I collected a few moodboards on some beautiful unaffordable it bags that I am craving right …

THE ITEM | Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipsticks

If  I have to choose just a type of lipsticks, I will surely go for the sheer ones. For a night out or a special event I dare to wear a bold lip but the 90% of time I am late and I just run out of the door and put on the lipstick while walking. Plus, I am fascinated by those 60’s icons like Jane Birkin or Brigitte Bardot with their luscious lips with just a hint of colour. Now, even though I do not have those full lips I am always looking for the perfect lipstick to recreate that effect. Because of this reason I accidentally started putting on my Chanel Rouge Coco Shine collection through the years and I would have bought even more shades if these lipsticks weren’t so pricey. Se dovessi scegliere una sola tipologia di rossetti, preferirei senza dubbio quelli trasparenti. Anche se per un’occasione speciale oso con labbra di un colore acceso, la maggior parte del tempo sono sempre in ritardo e applico il rossetto di corsa mentre sto per …

#NYFW Fall 2015 Recap

Once again another fashion week season has come. Editors and fashion bloggers have started to show up their most eccentric outfits, the fashion capitals are congested by cars and photographers and celebrities attend endless parties. Even though

About Glasses

When people talk about fashion and accessories they usually forget about some important items. One of them are glasses and, no matter if they are shades or optical ones, they can change your face features effortlessly. Even if on a daily basis I wear contact lenses for practicality, I always bring my glasses along with me so I can wear then through the day. I have a round face and gentle features and for this reason glasses suit me well, especially big and bold frames. But, there is a sad side on this story: designer eyewear is usually quite expensive so, if you are addicted to buying a several range of products, you can’t afford to change them as you would do for other accessories. Thence when the American brand Warby Parker contacted me talking about their new Spring Collection I jumped on the boat and caught the opportunity to talk about this brand created to give an alternative to high-priced eyewear but still maintaining a designer look. Despite its classical appearance, the eight new …

Put a (tiny) ring on it

I do love statement rings and necklaces but on a daily basis I wear a lot of sober accessories, that kind you never get tired of. In the past two years starting from fashion bloggers everyone has been wearing tiny jewelry and a lot of brands came out with these types of products. However according to my experience it’s hard to find  cute fine jewelry that aren’t quite expensive so I thought to share some affordable brands to look for. For what concerns watches, mine is from Casio which has a dark-brown leather watchband and  tiny golden case and it’s a smaller and cheaper alternative to the Daniel Wellington watches, that I personally adore. First of all, I discovered Aristocrazy, a spanish brand who has both economic and expensive items -my necklace is from Aristocrazy –  but the real revelation happened when I found out about & Other Stories. All the earrings, rings and bracelet in photos come from the Swedish brand and it has a large selection that you won’t be disappointed. Do you know any …

The “nude” edit

No guys, I am not talking about iClouds or Snapchat. I do the same make-up all the time: I don’t feel confortable wearing heavily coloured eyeshadows but I tend to opt for taupey-bronzey shadows because according to me they enhance the eyes the most. For this reason I tried to collect all my favourite nude eyeshadows dividing them in small categories and to share them with you. Cream eyeshadows  You can use these cream eyeshadows for different purposes, as a base or just alone. Bare Study and Permanent Taupe are both very renowned and I can see where the fuss is coming from. They have the perfect creamy texture but they fix in place and they don’t go into the crease. Mono eyeshadows I have to admit that I am not very into MAC eyeshadow but I do love Satin Taupe. I think it was one of the first eyeshadows I have ever bought and it accords perfectly to my skin and eyes colours. Switching on the cheaper side, lately L’Oreal is coming out with …

Chet Faker – Talk is Cheap

Nicholas James Murphy, aka Chet Faker, is an australian electronic musician who became famous when his cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” went  viral online. Then he released the EP Thinking in Textures on March 2012.   Two years later, Talk is Cheap was the first single released from his debut album “Built on Glass” and, despite it came out months ago, I’ve just discovered it and I thought to share this gem with you.  Also, I quite like the video of the song. Take a listen to the whole album, you won’t regret it.

How to deal with an everyday early awake

If you follow this blog you may have noticed that I haven’t updated it recently, the reason is because in the last month I got graduated, I moved to another city – for your own interest now I live in Milan- and I have started working. In the past year I didn’t have a lot of university classes so I was unprepared to start waking up early in the morning everyday and still looking socially acceptable. Plus, my job has to do with fashion so I am constantly surrounded by people that pay attention on their appearance and  had to learn some quick tips that can be useful to don’t look washed out every morning – warning, I am still not able to be polished and chic like Olivia Palermo but I am trying guys. 1. Always apply a foundation, but opt for products with a sheer and luminous finish instead of high coverage and extremely matte ones. After that go and conceal all the redness and imperfections and your face will appear fresher and younger than using a full coverage concealer. 2. Take with …

You Can Leave Your Hat On

If you usually stroll on Internet you may have noticed that the world has been affected by a fedora mania. There is always a type of hat on trend: we had bowler hats then beanies but I definitely prefer the most recent one because of the rock vibe a fedora hat can give to every outfit. I have seen lots of celebrities, bloggers or singers males and females wearing fedoras according to their styles and no matter if you want to wear it on the beach or during a rainy day because there will be a type that matches your needs. I put my hands on two black fedoras in the past months and I’ve been searching for a white version but I didn’t find one I liked enough that wasn’t extremely expensive. Don’t worry my research won’t stop until I will find it – I am scary, I know. If you want to buy a fedora but you can’t do a splurge with a Borsalino then Asos, Topshop,  Urban Outfitters and H&M have great substitutes. Oh, …

Zara haul

In the past two months I’ve had some special events and -of course- I needed new clothes. Also I have been loving the last Zara collection so it happened that I made a big splurge in there. 1. Oversized denim vest – 39.95 EUR | I own slighlty oversized shirts and blazers but they are usually quite minimalist. Following the new grunge wave, I decided to go for this extremely oversized vest – especially for my tiny figure – and  every time like it makes me feel like I am living in the 90’s. 2. T-shirt with pocket – 19.95 EUR | Who doesn’t need a good white T-shirt? I am quite demanding when it comes to T-shirts because I feel like they have to be soft on the skin, not too stiff or see-through and this one has all the requirements. 3. Wide trousers with belt – 59.95 EUR | I bought these pants for a job interview and I paired them with a white silky top. I am not as tall as the model and, despite it’s a con most of the times, in this …
