TRENDS | Miu Miu ballerinas

ENGLISH | ITALIANO Which girl did not wish to become a ballerina? Well, except me obviously. In recent years ballerina flats have been overshadowed by loafers and trainers but for the Spring/Summer collection Miu Miu proposed ballerina flats with a punk twist that make them unique. And, although I don’t want to be an etoile, I’ve fallen for these satin ballerinas anyway. They are perfect paired with a long dress and even more with vintage jeans. SHOP THIS ITEM Advertisements

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 …

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 …

Back to Basics – Fashion Haul

As you may have noticed from my last post I have done a bit of shopping in the past weeks and it didn’t stop with beauty and make-up. When I go shopping I am usually very instinctive and I end up buying eccentric items forgetting about the basics therefore I took advantage of the sales for buying basic clothes. Firstly, I decided to do some online shopping on Asos because I didn’t find anything interesting on physics shops. I read on internet people praising about Ridley High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans so I bought a pair of black ones in Petite. I am a quite short girl so it’s difficult for me to find jeans or pants that fit me good without shortening them and the Petite lines that some brands as Topshop or Asos do are life saviour. Also, I chose Kimmi Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans in mid wash vintage and a Soft Casual Shirt in blue. The two jeans have a completely different fit but I love both: Ridley jeans wrap my legs perfectly …

About black ankle boots

Yesterday, while I was walking home, a heel of my boots has broken. My boots, my ankle boots, my black ankle boots. One of my favourite black ankle boots. Then I realised I have way too many black ankle boots – flat, heeled, cut-out, preppy, edgy – and I have been wearing nothing but that type of shoes for the past few months. May I call that obsession? Maybe yeah, but they are my Linus’ blanket for the autumn-winter and they match perfectly with any outfit. Those are a few items I might wear: My broken friends will be repaired in a short time but there’s a major problem: the impending spring. What I am going to wear when will be too hot for my black ankle boots? The new trend is slip on sneakers: we will see if they will be able to win a place in my heart and to replace the black ankle boots.
