Powder pink and burgundy

I lately discovered this colour combination I think it's delicious and sofisticated and gives an allure so retro and delicate: powder pink matched with burgundy (called by me wine).
The perfect outfit for a not too formal evening: I wanted to enhance this retro look by choosing pieces as this small embroidered damask clutch (purchased a few years ago at Accessorize), the satin goddess top, the ring with small beads and two simple necklaces with a thiny chain and a single pendant. The first one is renowned by you. The second one is my recent creation: I found this little clock at the flea market in Paris for a trifle price (as you can see there's "chloè" written on the dial!!! Anyone can tell me if it could be the mytical "Chloé" label from Paris catwalks???). Then I simply mounted on a chain and added a clip. I like it so much!!!
And what about you? Do you like it?

Ho scoperto solo recentemente questo abbinamento di colori che trovo delizioso e sofisticato e regala un'allure retro e delicata: il rosa cipria abbinato al burgundy (che io chiamo anche vino).

New in

Yesterday I spent a nice evening with the staff of the italian magazine "TU STYLE", who organized an happy hour just here in Florence and I was invited so I had the honour of a talk and a picture taken together the director! Yessss!!! :D
Soon they'll publish the photos on their Facebook page, stay tuned for updates!
And now, here it is  the new entry in my closet!! Do you remember? I was looking for a pair of platform pumps like these (in THIS POST) and I've found them up on DOROTHY
I chose a colour I needed (I already own lots of black heels). What do you think about?
Tomorrow the first outfit with them! ;)

Ieri sera ho passato una piacevole serata con lo staff della rivista "TU STYLE", che ha organizzato un aperitivo proprio qui a Firenze a cui sono stata invitata, così ho avuto l'onore di chiacchierare e farmi una foto nientepopodimenoche col direttore!! Proprio così! :D
Presto pubblicheranno le foto sulla loro pagina Facebook, non perdetevi gli aggiornamenti!
E adesso, ecco a voi la new entry nel mio armadio! Ricordate? Stavo cercando un paio di decolletée con plateaux come queste (in QUESTO POST) e le ho finlamente trovate sul sito di DOROTHY PERKINS.
Ho scelto un colore che mi mancava, avendo già molti altri tacchi di colore nero. Che ne dite, vi piacciono?
Domani, il primo outfit con loro! ;)

First outfit with my new Tuscany Leather handbag

Here it is my outfit of my Easter days: confortable flats to walk trough Florence all the time with my family, my new Tuscany Leather bag and my favourite blazer (I've got a lust for blazer since last year...).
I spent my vacations with them and I'm very happy to have seen my parents after two months... I miss them so much!
This morning my love Gab is flying to Mexico again and I already miss him...
I need all your substain to switch quickly to the next two weeks!

Ed ecco il mio outfit dei miei giorni di Pasqua: ballerine comode per camminare tutto il tempo per Firenze con la mia famiglia, la mia nuova borsa Tuscany Leather e il mio blazer preferito (ho una passione per i blazer dall'anno scorso....).

My love is going to leave for Mexico again

I hope you'll forgive me for shorts posts these days and my absence next days: my love Gab is going to leave for Mexico again and I'm enjoin' his presence now, so I can't dedicate much time to my blog. Then, I will have less pics to publish because Gab is my photographer and he will be away for two weeks, so my sweeties, be patient and soon I will return with my cascade of ideas and pics for you!
Meanwhile, enjoy this preview of my first outfit with my new bag by Tuscany Leather and take a look at their e-shop: there are such amazing high quality tanned leather bags made in Tuscany! Which one did you chose? Here are my favourite items!

Spero che mi perdonerete per la mia latitanza degli ultimi e dei prossimi giorni: il mio amore Gab è di nuovo in partenza per il Messico e io sto cercando di godermi la sua presenza adesso, così non posso dedicare tanto tempo al blog. Poi, avrò anche meno foto da pubblicare perchè Gab è anche il mio fotografo e starà via per due settimane, così, caramelle mie, siate pazienti e presto ritornerò con la mia cascata di idee e foto per voi!!
Nel frattempo, godetevi questa piccola anticipazione del mio primo outfit con la mia nuova borsa Tuscany Leather e fatevi un giro nel loro shop online: ci sono tantissime borse meravigliose in vera pelle conciata ad arte! Voi quale avete scelto? Ecco qui di seguito le mie preferite!

Wonderful gift from Tuscany Leather

Do you remember THIS PURCHASE I made a few months ago up on the site Tuscany Leather?
Now the site is completely new and shows a large quantity of types and colours to choose. Quality is renowned (who doesn't know the leather tanned in Tuscany?), delivery times are short and personalization is for free!
The bag I bought immediatly became my ideal companion for my everyday outfits and loosing time.
Well, now I've got two bags in real leather by this label! This one is a wonderful gift I receveid on Saturday! :)
And I've got a large smile on my face...!
The colour is stunning, the bag has high quality finishing and many compartments inside (very useful for all women like me who keep in their own bags a high quantity of sundries we can't able to find if necessary).
I've got my name impressed on the bag as well! Later you'll see the first photos of the bag in an outfit of mine!
Meanwhile, tell me: do you like it as much as me?

Vi ricordate di QUESTO ACQUISTO che feci qualche settimana fa sul sito Tuscany Leather?

Where I keep my bijoux

As many of you already know,  I love recycling things, and change their destination of use. For exemple, I'm realy proud of this idea to re-use glasses to keep my earrings and rings. You have to choose a glass with large top and fill it with coloured gravel or sand.... Then you can embed your rings in and hung up your earrings along the edge.
Do you like the result?

Come molti di voi sanno già, mi piace molto riciclere le cose cambiandogli destinazione d'uso.

How to wear a striped tee

A couple of ways to wear striped white&black tees has been illustrated by me in other older posts (you can find them HERE, HERE and HERE).
Now I'm showing you a more glamourous way, perfect for the evening as well.
Obi belt and skirt are from Gucci Spring / Summer 2011 collection, and I know, it isn't a cheap choice! In fact, I'm looking for a gold obi belt like this and actually I didn't find it yet. (Have you seen a similar type a little bit cheaper than this one?)
Striped tee is by Moschino but you can easily find a similar one in every low-cost shop (it's the trend of the season of course!).
These shoes are by Chiara Ferragni but you can find a pair less expensive than these on or AkiraShop!
Enjoy your Easter, sweeties! Take care of your silhouette!!!

Un paio di modi di indossare le tshirt a righe bianche e nere sono stati illustrati in altri post (per esempio QUESTO, QUESTO e QUESTO).
Ma adesso ve ne mostro uno più glamourous, adatto anche per la sera.
La cintura obi e la gonna vengono dalla collezione primavera / estate 2011 di Gucci e, lo so, non è stata proprio una scelta tra le più convenienti! Infatti sto cercando una cintura obi oro simile a questa dappertutto ma finora nulla! (Voi ne avete viste di meno dipendiose, in giro?)
La maglia a righe è di Moschino ma confido nella vostra risparmiosità di fashioniste oculate e sono sicura che ve ne andrete a cercare una più economica in una qualsiasi catena low-cost..
Queste scarpe sono di Chiara Ferragni ma se ne può reperire un paio meno costoso su o AkiraShop!
Buona Pasqua, dolcezze! Prendetevi cura della vostra silhouette!!!

Rock soul

Yes, I've got a rock soul. I feel a little bit tomboy, but with heels, of course!
Here I was wearing a long printed tee, very rock, with a pair of used effect jeans and details in black and silver. My hair surely helps me in the look!
Tomorrow it's Easter and my parents decided to come and visit me: they will be here in a few hours (great! I'm very happy!!!!). And how you're gonna spend your Easter?
I would remember you can follow me also on Bloglovin' : a simple and useful network which helps you to keep track of all your favourite blogs. Try that!
You can enjoy my Facebook page too: you will find many extra contents. Share it!
Thank you for following me so lovely and cover me of compliments !!! You're fantastic!!!

Sì, ho un'anima rock. Mi sento un po' maschiaccio, ma pur sempre sui tacchi !!!

Re-use in new ways what you already own

A few days ago a group of friends asked me how I can change my outfit so often and find every day something new to wear: they thought I had an unlimited wallet... Well, I haven't. Indeed, I assure you that by working like everyone else and paying a mortgage, several bills, and car payments it's not easy and I often give up the shopping!
Sometimes people stop me in the street and ask me where I did buy that or this, or congratulate with me for my way to dress up. My friends consult me before buying something...
These observations and people let the idea of starting a blog rise in me: if I have something catching people ( which every people can recreate by themselves because I haven't got  an unlimited bank account ), well why not to make it availaible to others?
This blog doesn't illustrate red-carpet outfits or fab expensive bags: I trust in style due to your style and personality, not to your bank account! I've seen bloggers wearing their Birkin Hermes in an horrible way... Oh my God!
I like to throw anything away, unless it's decomposing! :) I love recycling, renovating, reusing, rematching old garments with new ones... A huge wardrobe is build guessed-purchase by guessed-purchase.
In short: I give you ideas, suggestions, sometimes a few tips: and you... copy, let be inspired!!
About my outfit today, I was searching a new way to match this skirt I purchased 5 years ago and I've found that by matching this old top and completing the outfit with a few accessories that reflect the colours of the top: a flower among my curls, a coloured bracelet, shoes in tone...
Collar is due to the kind of top's neckline and to the richness of decorations: so it's linear and close to neck.
What do you think about? Do you like the result? My boyfriend (who has picky) liked it...

Qualche giorno fa un gruppo di amiche mi ha chiesto come faccio a cambiarmi così spesso di outfit e a trovare sempre qualcosa di nuovo da mettere: pensavano che avessi un portafogli infinito... Beh, purtroppo non ce l'ho! Anzi, vi assicuro che lavorando come fanno tutti e pagando un mutuo, delle bollette e le rate della macchina non è facile e le rinunce sono tante!

Another working outfit, one of these make you feel confortable but not trivial, with jeans and a few accessories in caramel shades.
What do you think about? Would you use it every day?

Un altro "outfit da lavoro", uno di quelli che ti fa sentire comoda ma non banale, con i jeans e qualche accessorio nelle sfumature del caramello.

Shall I do that?

What do you think?
I found them at Benetton. The price is affordable and I'm very attracted but I didn't buy them.
What do you say? Shall I do?

Che ne pensate?
Le ho trovate da Benetton. Il prezzo è alla mia portata e ne sono molto attratta ma non le ho ancora comprate.
Voi che dite? Dovrei?

Pics from my loose Sunday afternoon, before the party.
This necklace is another gift from Mexico by my love Gab (isn't him so lovely? ^_^)
What's more, I also stole his scarf to cover better: I might have a relapse...

Foto dalla mia domenica pomeriggio in libertà, prima della festa.

B-day party

A birthday party for which I have rummage among my winter stuff because of the cold weather.
I've found this dress I didn't wear for a long time and I matched it with black garments and accessories.
I decided for my new prune lipstick (what do you think about?) and a light brush stroke of pink blush and the result was nice to me.
What do you think about?

Festa di compleanno per la quale ho rovistato tra le cose invernali dato il freddo che fa.

Autumnal outfit for a spring day...

I know, I couldn't go out yestarday, 'cause I'm still convalescent, but I did it. I had to do a few things I couldn't delay again.
So I covered myself as much as possible and I went out. This outfit seems taken from an autumnal post, but in fact, the weather these days doesn't allow me to do better.
Have a nice Sunday!

PS: please, don't take inspiration to match this orange nailpolish with similar lipsticks: it's horrible!!!! (I had to scoot)

Lo so, non potevo uscire ieri, perchè sono ancora convalescente, ma l'ho fatto. Dovevo sbrigare alcune commissioni che non potevo più rimandare.
Così mi sono coperta il più possibile e sono uscita. Questo outfit sembra tratto da un post autunnale, ma in effetti il tempo di questi giorni non mi permette di fare di meglio.

Personal shopper - Florence

Who follows me on Facebook already knows I'm ill so I will publish no new outfit post for a while.
As I promised you, here there are a few of precious addresses which will guide you in shopping if you're planning a vacation in Florence. Let's go!

Chi mi segue su Facebook sa già che sono malata e che non potrò pubblicare nuovi post di outfit per un po'.

Colors are among us! :D
Shops are invaded by shocking pinks, neon yellows, bright greens, joyful oranges.... Color is all around! What a beauty!!
This is a bunch of pics I took on Wednesday, when I was in Florence for an "hunting tour": hunting pics, ideas, purchases, inspirations....
Now enjoy these pics, tomorrow I will tell you where I've been! :)

I colori sono tra noi! :D
I negozi sono invasi di rosa shocking, gialli neon, verdi brillanti, arancioni gioiosi... Il colore è tutto intorno a noi! Che bellezza!!

Just seen in Florence

Just now the wether is going badly, should it take a dress like this to recall spring of its duty!

Proprio adesso che il tempo si sta mettendo male, ci vorrebbe un vestito come questo per ricordare alla primavera il suo dovere!

It was just an illusion....

Here in Florence the summer heat of last days is over and now we're back in spring. Yesterday morning I woke up and I didn't know what to wear, so I decided to pick up from winter stuff this jacket I bought in Paris last year (very cheap, a real deal). During the day I put it off, but these pics were taken in the morning when it was colder.
(These flats weren't a good choice because they're very thiny and my poor feet had suffer a little bit of cold.)

PS: my eye circles testify how little I slept that night because of the strong wind.

Qui a Firenze il caldo estivo è terminato e finalmente siamo tornati in primavera. Ieri mattina non sapevo proprio come vestirmi e così ho deciso di vestirmi a strati, raccattando dalla roba invernale questa giacchina che ho comprato a Parigi l'anno scorso (mi è costata pochissimo, un vero affare).

Mad for dots

They're little bit Fifties, such as polite and feminine. Every spring seems they're living their glory moment..... I'm looking for dots!

Sono un po' anni Cinquanta, così perbene e femminili. Ogni primavera sembra che vivano il loro momento di gloria.... sto cercando qualcosa a pois!!!

Minimalist among spring blossom

I often have the problem on Friday to wear something I can use during all the day and keep also for the evening, because after working I usually go to Florence to spent my evening and I haven't the possibility to go home and change me. So this was a solution for last Friday: I had no parties, no events, and I chose a very basic outfit, reducing colours in black and white only and minimizing accessories too. I think it was such a delicate and chic outfit.

Spesso ho il problema, di venerdì, di indossare qualcosa che possa andar bene per tutto il giorno e da tenere addosso anche per la sera, perchè dopo il lavoro di solito vado a Firenze a passare la serata e non ho la possibilità di tornare a casa a cambiarmi.

i want to break free

Forgive me for this absence... I've been spent a wonderful Sunday among grasses, trees, blue sky, kissed by light of sun and in peace with the spirit of the world! 
This place is in Tuscany, close to the Pieve of Romena, an amazing old church where you can find reconciliation and peacefulness with the Whole Soul of the world. If you're planning a vacancy in Tuscany, add this stage to your itinerary, believe me!
Here there are some of the lots of pics we took. My spirit today was free from conventions, so I matched freely leopard with red sneakers! What do you think about?
Have a peaceful and joyful week!

Perdonate la mia assenza... ma come vi dicevo ho passato una meravigliosa domenica in mezzo a prati, alberi, cielo azzurro, baciata dal sole e in pace con lo spirito del mondo!

Forgive my absence!

I spent a magic Sunday in Tuscany countryside among fiels and trees.The pics are coming!

Ho passato una domenica magica nella campagna toscana tra campi e alberi meravigliosi. Le foto arrivano presto!

Life in technicolor

Spring is really warm this year, I need some sea time...
Unfortunately as usual every year, the time of seasonal change has come... :(
I'm destroyed thinking about this because I won't change the place of my garments in the same closet (I haven't got a real closet indeed), but I will have to bring my stuff in the garret, which is an hard work... ohiohiohi.... what a bad Saturday I'm going to spent! 
Give me support with your toughts....

La primavera è veramente calda quest'anno, e io ho bisogno di un po' di mare...

Let me get over

Little preview before publishing the complete post... I have to get over !!

Piccola anticipazione del post completo... Lasciate che mi riprenda dal venerdì!

How to match the flowered dress

Do you remember this pic? I took it from Glamour Italy for inspiration in this post.
Now I found some cute pieces we can use to reproduce the same outfit in a cheaper key.
The denim shirt is a cult piece of this hippie style season as well. So, if you already have one in your closet, you're advantaged. I'm trying to fix up.

Vi ricordate di questa immagine? L'avevo presa da Glamour Italia per ispirazione in questo post.
Ora ho trovato dei pezzi molto carini per riprodurre lo stesso outfit in chiave più economica.

Informal party

Last evening we were invited at a friend's home for her birthday. I chose a very simple outfit because of informal situation, but I wanted to give a touch of mine with details: red lipstick (this one is an orange red shade perfect for good weather), red patent shoes (with a low heel: at home are more confortable!), my funny panda ring and jeans rolled up at the bottom (I think this way gives you a perfect look with pumps!)
Other accessories I chose are really basic: a linear thiny collar, two simple bangles (one of those was added last minute). Gold was perfect with simplicity of black&white, don't you think?
So what? Was I suitable for a house party among friends?

Ieri sera eravamo invitati a casa di un'amica per il suo compleanno.

London shoes

Here it is the outfit of my Sunday evening spent at the theatre. Purse and jacket are the same of the morning outfit ( see here) : I changed all the rest.
These shoes are very special and very loved by the people: every time I wear them, there's always someone who stop me in the street and explains all his enthusiasm for them! ....And I really enjoy it!!
I bought them in London, in an amazing shop in Covent Garden which I never wanted to leave anymore...!!! There were a lot of amazing and extraordinary shoes that I never saw in Italy before and it was very difficult deciding which pair of them bringing home with me!
What do you think? Did I make a good choice?

Ecco qui l'outfit che ho scelto domenica sera per andare a teatro. Rispetto all'outfit del giorno (vedi qui) ho lasciato la giacca e la pochette, cambiando tutto il resto.

Yellow rockeuse

Sunday. Sun shining. A perfect day to go on the beach..... and we...... we went IKEA.......................... :O
I needed a chest to keep all my tees that reproduce themselves exponentially... so I brainwashed my boyfriend and I bring him to Ikea with me....
Luckily I found quite soon what I was searching for, and we went to take a walk in Florence as well.
In the evening we had to go Theatre and see his uncle performing a show, but I changed my outfit so you'll see it tomorrow...
Meanwhile, tell me what do you think about this rockeuse outfit!

Domenica. Un sole splendido. Il giorno ideale per andare al mare.... e noi.... e noi siamo andati all'IKEA!!!!..... :O
Urgeva una cassettiera supplementare per le mie magliette che si riproducono in maniera esponenziale..... così ho convinto Gab e l'ho trascinato all'Ikea con me....

How to wear a fluo garment

I think this is the most chic way to wear fluo garments: matching them with natural colors, as nude, taupe, beige. That's a combination already proposed some collections ago by Marni, but you know: trends are long to entry in common use...
Have a good week!!!

Credo che questo sia il modo più chic di indossare capi fluo: combiandoli con toni naturali, come il nude, il taupe, il beige. E' una combinazione che fu proposta già diverse collezioni fa da Marni, ma come ben sapete le tendenze di passerella ci mettono un po' prima di penetrare nell'uso comune...
Buona settimana a tutti!

Tie a knot on your tee

Last thursday evening I had to see a friend, but I had so many things to do I couldn't afford to take a shower, wash my hair and change my clothes... So I made the same look I had during the day, changing the jacket only, and deciding at least before going out to tie a knot in my swetshirt, as a rose.
I wore two headband, so my gathered hair wouldn't seem too messy, and I chose them in the same colour of shoes and nailpolish...
Finally I liked my look and decided to present it here.
What do you say, do you like it?

Giovedì sera dovevo vedere un'amica, ma avevo così tante cose da fare che non potevo permettermi di farmi una doccia, nè di lavarmi i capelli e nemmeno di cambiarmi... Così mi sono presentata con lo stesso look del giorno, cambiandomi solo la giacca e decidendo solo all'ultimo momento prima di uscire di fare un nodo alla felpa, come se fosse una rosellina.

My favourite rings

These are my favourite rings this period. If you follow my blog, you may know the ring on the right: it's a gift from mexico by my boyfriend Gab (see here). I think its amber stone is incredible. It's not heavy as well.
The ring on the left, instead, is a new entry on this blog. I found it last saturday on a stand, when I was in the center of Prato taking a walk with my friend Claudia. A few days ago I found on the web a similar ring without rhinestones and I liked it very much. When I saw it on the stand I couldn't resist: I had to buy it!!
And what about you? What's your favourite one?

Questi sono i miei due anelli preferiti in questo periodo.

How to wear a printed jungle dress

This is not a dress but it catched my eyes since my first sight! Maybe because of the print, I don't know... But I think it's really cute and I thought a way to wear it before buying. 
A short garment needs covered arms but we're almost in summer so we can use a large hat to recreate harmony in the silhouette. We can also use a cascade of bangles and a big bag. Shoes are in the same hue of other accessories.
What do you think about?

Non è un vestito ma mi ha colpito fin dalla prima occhiata! Forse sarà per la stampa... non so... Ma credo sia davvero carino e pensavo a una maniera di abbinarlo prima di comprarlo.
Un vestito corto necessita di qualcos'altro di coperto, come le braccia, ma visto che siamo quasi in estate possiamo usare un cappello a falda larga per ricreare l'armonia nella silhouette. Possiamo usare anche una cascata di bracciali rigidi e una maxi borsa. Le scarpe le ho scelte dello stesso colore degli altri accessori.
Che ne dite?

tuta stampata/ printed jumpsuit RIVER ISLAND $27
maxi cappello / large hat ASOS € 26,24
scarpe / heels DOROTHY PERKINS € 34
doctor bag RIVER ISLAND € 91
bracciali in legno / wood bangles NORDSTROM.COM $28
