The International Edit – March 17

The International Edit – March 17

Now that we’re back from Texas and fully re-adapted to frigid northeastern life, it’s time to get back into our normal routine. That means that I’ve recently spent some time poring over a couple of our favorite non-American retail sites for this week’s edition of The International Edit, and spring has definitely sprung overseas. Below, you’ll find the latest bags, shoes, accessories and clothes from two European retailers, The Corner and My-Wardrobe, which include several European brands that can be a little trickier to come by in the States. (American customers, fret not – these retailers ship to you as well.)

The final day of my family vacation resulted in a tough 2 hour clean up operation at the villa, each of us assigned to specific jobs, one disappeared playing hide-and-seek, definitely not me.  From floor to ceiling, wall to wall, furniture to furniture, and sore backs, the villa looked spic-and-span.  A job well done indeed.  We couldn’t leave North Cyprus without paying a quick visit to the capital, Lefkosa (Lefkosia or Nicosia), the city is currently the only divided capital city in the world, divided by the northern (Turkish) and southern (Greeks) parts, a demilitarised zone maintained by the United Nations.  It was about an hour drive to the city, we of course, forgot to bring our passports to enter southern Cyprus.  As the temperature reached boiling point, skin gotten darker, nose clogged up with dry dust, my camouflage-sport (top by Rihianna x River Island) attire didn’t cause concern with the local army officers, thankfully it’s legal to wear camouflage in public.

Pictorial highlights:

  • Photo 1, 2, 7, 18, 25 & 26: My attire – Camo top by Rihanna x River Island, Adidas running shorts, Ash wedged trainers, MCM armour backpack (see similar style on here), sunglasses courtesy of Carerra x Jimmy Choo, pineapple necklace courtesy of Floramazona, headphones courtesy of Frends, Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom courtesy of Samsung.
  • Photo 3: I love old window shutters.
  • Photo 4 & 5: Old British colonial buildings still left standing. A stall selling handcrafted baskets.
  • Photo 6, 8 & 9: Local pensioners with their cart full of fruits and shopping.
  • Photo 10: Heavy branded cafe.
  • Photo 11 & 12: Pizza break.
  • Photo 13 & 14: Turkish tea and coffee at Kahve Altinkalb.
  • Photo 15: The locals loved having their picture taken.
  • Photo 16 & 17: Turkish cafe and home treats at The Great Inn (Buyuk Han).
  • Photo 19, 20, 21 & 22: Interesting bits and bob upon entering the market hall.
  • Photo 23: Plant cart outside The Selimiye Mosque.
  • Photo 24: Lazy stray cat.
  • Photo 27: The Great Inn (Buyuk Han).
  • Photo 28: I love Cyprus. Oh yes we do.

Yesterday in grey

TheBlondeSalad-22379-copia

My Sunday brunch look: wore again after a long time my Ash booties (oh memories) and Alexander Wang Diego Bucket bag (that you can find here). And since some of you told me I take too many pictues with my sunglasses on here for you some more natural ones :)
Let's rock this week!

Il mio look da brunch domenicale: reindossati dopo tanto tempo gli stivaletti di Ash (che ricordi), e la Diego Bucket bag di Alexander Wang (che potete trovare qui). E visto che alcuni lamentavano le troppe foto con occhiali da sole eccone alcune più natural :)

Best parka in the world

TheBlondeSalad-12569-copia

I've always loved parkas and, since last year, I've always looked for the perfect one: I started with a simple and low cost one, and then I bought a warmer one, perfect for New York weather in February. This year I finally found the perfect one: it's by Elizabeth And James (one of Olsen twins brands) and it's a good combination of girly and sporty, typical of parkas. Which is your favourite one?
P.S: How cool is the panettone on the street? Wanna taste it?

Ho sempre amato i parka e dall'anno scorso sono andata alla ricerca di quello perfetto: sono partita da un modello semplice e low cost, fino ad arrivare ad un modello foderato all'interno, perfetto per il freddo di New York dello scorso febbraio. Quest'anno ho finalmente trovato il modello perfetto: è di Elizabeth And James (uno dei marchi delle gemelle Olsen) ed ha la giusta combinazione di femminilità e sportività, tipica del parka. Qual è il vostro preferito?
P.S: Quanto è divertente il panettone in strada? Ne volete un morso?
