The new Marilyn

Back we are with our New Designers appointment. Here’s an amazing white dress from Brenda which immediately made me think about a modern Marilyn Monroe. What do you say? Spring’s approaching and the weather in Milan has been beautiful in the past couple of days, reaching 20 degrees! I’d just want to wear this right now for an afternoon walk in the park! Ok, I’m dreaming here ’cause I need to study for my exams, but I think this garment would be the perfect interpretation for the 2012 little white dress.

Sweetness is In

As I told you at the beginning, this is not a fashion blog. Of course fashion plays an important role in here, as photography does as well, but most of all I want to talk about every object, detail, aspect of what I see and enjoy so that I can share with you my “findings” and reveal little secrets you might not know. I would love if you did the same with me! Being extremely curious I’m always looking for novelties. So, today I want to show you something reeaally sweet! I know that Valentine’s day has just passed, but I also know that for many of us there’s way more than one day in a year to celebrate with one’s lover, right? Then, rush to the supermarket and try this super-easy super-good recipe. It comes from a blog I really enjoy reading, so go and have a look over there too.  Continue reading

Backstaging

20120226-194251.jpg

Un backstage inaspettatamente calmo e sereno, niente urla o schiamazzi, solo una grande scarica di adrenalina lunga i cinque minuti della sfilata. Così è stata presentata la collezione autunno/inverno 2012/13 di Frankie Morello, piacevolmente accompagnata dall’intensa Make me wanna die. La canzone è da inserire nella playlist mentre i corpetti di catene e le trasparenze dal mood rock sono da annotare negli appunti sui trend della prossima stagione. Di sicuro Maurizio Modica e Pierfrancesco Gigliotti non badano a distinguere giorno e notte e, con una musa ispiratrice come Joan Jett, parlano ad una donna che vive di palchi e riflettori.

For Fashion’s Sake

We have officially entered Milano Fashion Week and all shop windows have dressed up for the occasion. Look at the Pirelli store one, located in Corso Venezia. Amazing!

Siamo ufficialmente nel mezzo della Settimana della Moda di Milano e tutte le vetrine si sono fatte belle per l’occasione. Guardate questa del negozio Pirelli in Corso Venezia. Incredibile!

Spots in… London

I have to confess I miss living in London just because of this pretty Café-Boutique.

The owners make the most amazing french croissants and pains au chocolat ever (!) and trust me, you won’t find a better place to have breakfast in the city. Delicious food, great location – Westbourne Grove, just 5 minutes away from Notting Hill area and Portobello market – the nicest staff and a super cute shop selling home decor, retro items and little trinkets (especially coming from old childhood memories) you will hardly find elsewhere.

You can judge Giulia’s ability yourself by looking at the finishes in this close-up, I think she’s absolutely amazing. I’ll be uploading some dresses photos soon, so stay tuned! (; Continue reading
