Some window shopping for you

I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely desperate for a good shopping session. The thing is, where I am right now is a truly beautiful yet shop-deprived corner of the world. So I have been browsing around the net to get some good fashion inspiration, and  I ended up window shopping at Valentin0.com

Valentino is one of the most classic Italian designer, and his style has always been very feminine, seductive, and sophisticated at the same time. These are my three favourite dresses from the ready-to wear spring-summer 2011 collection at Valentino.com.

I think they are absolutely stunning… So simple and elegant, to me they represent exactly what the essence of style is.

I have an obsession with black, so there is no doubt, if I had to pick one and just one, it would be  the black satin dress. Wich one would you choose? Tell me!

Ciao ciao, the weekend is starting, hope you have a good one!

Beach Philosophy

As I am no poet, I am just unable to describe how much I love being under the sun, in front of the sea, lying on warm sand… So I will just say that to me going to the beach is always an experience of pure happiness and absolute freedom.

As such, I can’t even imagine wearing anything more complicated than a top, a pair of shorts and simple, nice flip flops.

To get the best out of my day on the beach I like to get organized, and make sure I don’t leave at home any of the fundamental items I will need, like sunglasses, camera, sunblock , after tan  perfumed oil (like huile satine’ by Clarins), and obviously my favourite music.

In the picture: bikini by La Perla, bag by Miss Sixty, flip flops by ViaMaestra, shorts by Fornarina, beach towel by PoloRalphLauren.

Sunglasses inspiration Spring Summer 2011

Hello divas,

do you love sunglasses just as I do?

Really, there is nothing more glamorous than a nice pair of shades. Sunglasses can dramatically change the way you look , always adding interest and mystery to a pretty face. This is definitely the perfect accessory, as it can be prestigious and seductive at the same time.

Don’t forget sunglasses can help you conceal your emotions, should you need it… and – last but not least – they are absolutely imperative in hiding the consequences of a late night out! Hence, sunglasses are always, always cool….

Here a personal selection of the nicest shades around right now. Hope you like it!

Our favourite spring summer 2011 fashion trends

Hello hello!

What a day…are you too surrounded by spring?

Among all the trends seen on the catwalks for this

coming season the one we like the most is the

tropical-inspired one.

                                                                                     

 We love the gorgeous floreal prints in Mother Nature’s

 colours, won’t they make you feel like you are strolling

 on a sandy beach in an exotic paradise?

Trend no. 2 absolutely not to be missed: the maxi dresses.

Ok, this is not totally new, as we have seen the look one too many times before, but the spring summer 2011maxi dress is super sheer, super light, and super long…a bit ’70s in fact…

Yes! The ’70s are yet another strong inspiration

 for the summer, although it’s more of a sophisticated look than a funky ‘flower power’ one.

So kiss your old skinny jeans goodbye and start thinking

 about high waist wide-leg pants, really high platforms,and geometrical prints. Add to it long flowing hair and…

… here you go, you have the perfect look for the summer!
