White Out

Ok, I confess! I didn’t watch the Emmys…

I did spend a decent amount of time searching the hashtag #emmys2014 on Instagram* to see what everyone was wearing. After 237,485 photos of Julia Roberts in her leg lengthening short dress (by Elie Saab) and red dresses aplenty, the elegant and surprisingly not bride-like ladies in white won spots as my favorites.

Did you watch? Who was your favorite?

From left to right: Kate Mara, Allison Williams and Michelle Monaghan.

*which led me to many OITNB profiles. Hey Piper! Hi Crazy Eyes!

LAYERING DENIM

CRFashionBook2CRFashionBook3 CRFashionBook CRFashionBook4Ph by Billy Kidd for CR Fashion Book

It already took me way longer than expected to find a Denim Jacket that actually fits my needs, which means; long enough for a tall girl without necessarily looking too oversized and frumpy. Considering Autumn and eventually Winter are around the corner -and lets be honest, I don’t deal very well with the low temperatures-, I need to master my layering skills and since I don’t want to stop wearing my denim jacket, it will only be possible with a little layering.

Salvation Mountain

3U5A4419

During our California roadtrip we couldn’t miss visiting Salvation Mountain: an art installation that covers an entire hill of the Colorado desert.
The artist who created it, Leonard Knight (who died last February) spent the last 40 years of his life to enlarge and paint his artificial mountain, sharing a love message and showing the tourists around.
A magnificent place that is definitely worth a visit.

Durante il nostro roadtrip in California una delle tappe che non potevo perdermi era Salvation Mountain: un’installazione d’arte che ricopre un’intera collina del deserto del Colorado.
L’artista che l’ha creata, Leonard Knight (morto lo scorso Febbraio), ha impiegato gli ultimi 40 anni della sua vita a perfezionare ed ingrandire la sua “montagna artificiale”, condividendo un messaggio d’amore e accogliendo i turisti in prima persona.
Un posto spettacolare che merita sicuramente una visita se siete nella zona.

Boys Side

I’m the first one to tell you to buy vintage.

Some of my most special pieces were vintage finds (like my Celine jeans, which we should come back to). But what I found out recently was that the mens side is just as good. Somewhere in Manhattan is a man who buys women’s shoes because HIS feet are that small. And to him I say, Thank you for my all black Prada wingtips in a size 37! I’m not too squeamish to buying vintage shoes …

I’m looking forward to scouring the mens section for big coats I can belt and chunky sweaters for fall, you never know when something might just be the perfect fit…

Do you have any vintage shopping tips?

Justify My Love

I don’t know why, but this photo really makes me think of Madonna’s album cover (be ready to dive straight into the 80’s), Like A Prayer.

A total 10’s version (how do you call this decade? The 10’s?) of the cover that made a mark on me so much when I was a kid.

So, obviously, I love the over-the-top jewelry with the distressed jeans. Yeah, even if I have a hard time admitting it because of her recent weird media theatrics that feel a tiny bit sad, I’m a fan of Madonna. So just for you, here is the cover :

And here is the video as well.

Aaaah, I love it !

Super Model Mania

I’m experiencing a new level of model crush.

I know it might be too early to say this, but I think this is my favorite spread of the September fashion magazines: W’s “Super Normal Super Models.”

Kate, Lara, Daria, Raquel, Saskia, Mariacarla… they’re all there. And living the 90s inspired dream.

Here are some of my favorite images. You can see the whole spread here!

How Short is Too Short?

My mom wears shorts.

Like real shorts. Not bermudas. Shorts almost as short as my 20 years old sister’s, whose shorts are so short that sometimes you can’t really see them under her tee-shirts. All right, all right. Not that short. My mom is chic. And she wears her shorts on vacation.

But still.
I almost feel like I should revise my own shorts proportions.

Well of course she doesn’t wear them to go to work, and she doesn’t have a wrinkle on her knees – but anyways, even if that was the case, I have to tell you that whatever their age, I think people should dress the way they want.

To me, being vulgar or incongruous is more in the attitude than in the clothes.

You can be 20 and be super cute in super short shorts – but also super trashy. A mini can be worn at any age with distinction.

I liked seing Carine Roitfeld in a crop top. She herself a grandma, she’s not scared of contradictions: she says that she chooses longer skirts now. But she goes along with a (discreet) cropped top.

To me, she’s helping us see mature women in a different way. It’s a new way to wear your age, a new freedom to be yourself, and to re-imagine the codes of fashion.

And that’s pretty perfect, because this winter, with the 60’s fashion* coming back, we’re all going to end up in short skirts, whether we like it or not.

What do you think? Do you feel free to wear whatever you want? Do you ask yourself about what’s appropriate to wear for your age?


* Oooooooh, nooooooo, the 60’s fashion is back AGAIN!!! Each time it’s back I want to throw all the editorials with wannabe Twiggy in geometrical poses out the window.

Where’s Gisele?

Everywhere, it seems.

My favorite Brazilian is making a serious impact on the fall campaigns. She sported a faux buzz cut for Balenciaga (I mourned the loss of her perfect beach waves for a brief moment), sparkled in Pucci, went au naturel for Sonia Rykiel and now she’s giving us some real je ne sais quoi for Isabel Marant.

She’s one of very few models that despite being pretty commercial, she still has this totally cool and chic vibe. Does that mean she’s mastered the art of the super model today?

Sofia & Calder

Sofia Coppola isn’t just making wine and movies anymore, she’s back into the fashion biz.

Calder, an LA based line of simple and classic tees from Amanda Blake (cousin-in-law to Sofia), has teamed up with Sofia to shoot their new look book.

Talk about luck! Could you ask for a cooler in-law?

Sneaker Couture

The making of the Dior fall sneakers certainly was tedious!

Scrunch it Up

Ok, so our lovely intern Margaux has been sporting scrunchies in her hair….

…. and it’s kind of driving us mad. Because she actually pulls it off! It isn’t necessarily a trend worth revisiting for everyone, but we wanted to know where her scrunchie confidence is coming from, and she simply said:

“The scrunchie is a bit like the blanket, or thumb sucking from childhood, we’re ashamed we have/do it, but we love it, it makes us feel nostalgic, especially when you are far away from your home.”

Oh yeah, Margaux has been spending the summer with us here in NYC from Paris!

So what do you think, are scrunchies back?

BLOGS ARE LIKE TV SERIES

Blogs-are-like-TV-series

I was recently asked in a few interviews about how the blogosphere has become so competitive and how bloggers are now competition to each other…My view on this is very simple and I thought that instead of only answering this question on an interview, I should share this with you as well.

Think of a blog as a TV series. I personally binge watch series on Netflix and HBO as much as I binge on reading my favorite blogs on bloglovin. EVERY DAY. No, Orange is the New Black doesn’t make me love Game Of Thrones any less because its a different series, I watch them both equally excited. Or how about House Of Cards? Have you watched it? Completely different concept, still nail biting and amazing in its own way. Well, thats how I see blogs.Sure, some TV series are more viewed that others, same with blogs but the fact that you love watching one, doesn’t mean that you wont watch the other. You will watch both and probably make a Saturday of staying in pajamas, eating takeout and not leaving the couch.

There is a market for everything, everyone has different taste and freedom to consume any content they want, whether it’s online or on television. So no, I don’t think bloggers are competing against each other, we just cater to different audiences and its up to us to create the best possible content for you to keep coming back.

Monica Vinader

I’ve never been a big ring stacker…

…but I adore these stackable rings from Monica Vinader. They are sold individually, so its really their simple design and details that caught my attention.

My favorites are the green onyx and pave versions!

The Everyday Heel

Its hard to find a heel that is ladylike, not too fancy and of course, comfortable for everyday wear!

These ones from Alexander Wang have that nice sturdy heel, great for walking on those treacherous cobblestones. And the ankle strap locks you in, similar to my Teva’s. That’s it! They are basically a heeled Teva . Haha, okay they are way more chic.

What kind of heel do you wear in the city?

Closet Detox

I have NOTHING to wear!?!

Okay, not really but it’s exactly how I’m feeling right now, and it’s not even fashion week.

I took this as a sign that it was time to really give my closet a good detox.

This translated into making my boyfriend suffer as I pulled out every single piece of clothing I owned that was either on a hanger, folded (a towering stack of jeans) or came in pairs (shoes), holding them up, trying them on and deciding between YES and NO (Similar to that scene in Sex and the City when Carrie cleans out her closet, except there was less champagne. Fine. There wasn’t any champagne).

The result? I sold or donated everything that didn’t fit, was too trendy, too worn out and invested in a new pair of black trousers that I’ve already worn more times than all of the things I got rid of combined.

I’m making it my new mantra to buy quality, simple, classic pieces going forward. I know my morning routine will thank me when I can’t decide what to wear and I remember the perfect black trousers/black dress/white tee/mens button down waving hello from the closet.

Prints & Overalls

Obviously, now that August has arrived, I can’t help but look at the fall collections.

I make plans for my wardrobe, imagine the new September me, and then when September finally comes, I’m so busy that I end up having to keep wearing all the summer clothes I’m totally sick of…I don’t have to explain it to you, we all do that.

Ok, it’s August 4th, so maybe it’s a little early, but all I know is I really want rompers.

Which reminds me of the photo shoot I did last spring for Ç Façonnable, the brand my friend Mira designs. We shot the photos with Candela, who you also know from seeing her here.

Candela-Novembre-Faconnable-2_garance-dore
Faconnable_Candela-novembre-3_garance-dore

I really like the super comfortable aspect of everything she designs and also the fun side she brings to the collections, with the prints and embroidery (like on that amazing jacket in the first photo!) She’s obviously crazy about rompers, since they’re the most comfortable thing in the world (except at times like this). I don’t know if I could do the blue foral one, but I think it’s perfectly cool (and perfectly light enough) for a September afternoon.

What do you think? Should I embark on a floral romper adventure?

Think Pink

I have a slight addiction to pink sunglasses.

The last two pairs I had (both vintage and irreplaceable) ended up disappearing into that dreaded sunglasses black hole. In searching for (yet another) replacement pair, I found these little pink cat-eyes at Topshop.

At least now I’ll know where to find them when they go missing…

SCORE

KEnzo2Kenzo1
Bag: KENZO

I have been haunting down this bag for a very long time, I just couldn’t make my mind up on which color I wanted. While I was in Paris for my birthday I finally decided to get the red version but they didn’t have it anymore, it was a summer color they said and well, it went on sale and got sold out in no time. I sort of had lost hope until I walked into a shop in Amsterdam and of all places, it was there patiently waiting for me and on sale! SCORE!!!!

While I was at the store I went trough a moment of confusion since they also had the blue version, even some of you told me through Facebook that I should go for that one instead. Then I realized it was the red one I’ve been wanting all along, plus I could use some color on my accessories, specially when winter comes. I think the red one was a great choice but if you also like the blue one, its on sale here.

ON TRENDS SOME OF US CANT UNDERSTAND

birks2

I consider myself to be a person who tries to get challenged into trying new things. As a girl growing up in a small city, where “everything” you would wear, specially considered out of the ordinary would be a bit of a joke to people around you, I forced myself to change my approach towards styling when I moved to Europe. I do believe on taking risks when it comes to styling and I have taken a beating or two on this very blog because of it.

With that said, I don’t or at least I try not to fall into every single trend I see out there, Why? Simply because 1) I don’t like them or 2)I don’t think they would suit me….Birkenstocks with socks is one of these trends. I admire people who have attempted this trend and perhaps even nailed it, but I personally cant get my head around it.

As I was walking in Paris, I saw a very adorable old man crossing the street, he was wearing a white t-shirt and khaki shorts, very suitable considering it was about 35 degrees outside, but then I looked a little lower and thats when it hit me! He was wearing a brown pair of Birkenstocks with some sort of mid calf white sport socks. Yes! thats where I have seen it before! This “trend” isn’t new, no no, this has been around for as long as I remember, I only remember it differently.

I am quite certain and I would even dare to say 100% sure that when you were a younger, you probably saw a man walking around the beach, city or what not wearing Birkenstocks with socks and I am QUITE certain you told your Father; If you ever wear that Dad, I will deny I am your daughter! and with that said, I am also sure you used to find this trend atrocious.

Now fast forward a few years and this trend has become big, but why?

I would like to clarify that I denied myself the pleasure of attempting this trend simply because its not something for me. I do own a pair of Birkenstocks which I bought out of impulse a year ago, but they are sadly sitting in my closet. I am always curious to see people attempting this trend and I am not in any way criticizing them, I am just curious as in why this has become “something”. If you know, please do enlighten me.

Tee Shirt Earrings

Ah the Dior earring…

We’ve seen it before, in fact it may be the earring of the past year. But the question is, how do you wear it? As a matching pair? Or do you go singular like Garance?

Either way, this amazing pink pair is topping my earring wishlist.

Watch Out!

There are so many classic watches that I love…

…like the Première and the Hermès Médor. But, sometimes its fun to wear a different kind of classic, like the Swatch!

Are you a watch wearer or do you just rely on your cell phone to tell time?

Le Ballet Dries

Menswear inspired by ballet?? Yes, please.


I can’t help but be drawn to the silk pants paired with a drapey tee and embellished blazer from the Dries mens collections. The SS15 show really has me inspired. I love tthe handsome fabrics mixed with the color palette and layering of a ballet ensemble.

I wouldn’t mind a Baryshnikov-esque man walking my way…

The Teva

Despite my tendency to solely wear sneakers in the summer, this year things have changed.

While the Birkenstock was not for me, the Teva however, was right up my alley (they recently had their “cool” moment when Marc Jacobs put them on the runway). Light, strapped in (with velcro!) and super simple (no crazy embellishments here!).

For me, there isn’t much more that I could ask for from a sandal. Plus, guess who can run on the hot sandy beach…This girl. 

Get a pair here : Tevas, $40.00

After Hours

I wouldn’t mind a little after hours shopping experience…

I always thought it would be really cool to get locked in the mall overnight. You could go to all of the stores, try on all of the clothes, (eat all the pretzels), spray all the perfumes… It turns out none of that is possible if you actually do get stuck in a mall because everything is closed off and it’s more similar to a horror movie than a shopping dream come true. I know this because in college, I worked at the mall…

But what about an after-hours Chanel shopping spree? I like to imagine it would happen exactly like it does in this video…

Romantic Milano

3U5A9901-copy

Most of you probably follow my trips on my Instagram profile but, for those who don’t know about my summer plans yet…
I’m now in Los Angeles for a week of work, and then I’ll be flying to Beijing and New York, to come back for the whole August to California (except for a holiday week in Hawaii :D ). Far from my Milano home, office (and, ugh, italian friends and family) for a month and a half.
This look was shot in one of my last italian nights: with the “suitcase problem” when I travel that much It is hard for me to pack such big pieces. A much more romantic look than usual, and definitely also more italian :)

La maggior parte di voi seguirà ormai i miei continui spostamenti sul mio profilo di Instagram ma, per chi ancora non fosse a conoscenza dei miei piani per l’estate…
Sono ora a Los Angeles per una settimana di lavoro, e sarà poi il turno di Pechino e New York, per poi tornare in California durante tutto il mese di Agosto (eccetto una settimana di vacanze alle Hawaii :D ). Lontana quindi dalla mia casa milanese, dal mio ufficio (e, sigh, da amici italiani e famiglia) per un mese e mezzo.
Questo look è stato scattato durante una delle ultime serate milanesi: con il “problema” valigia quando viaggio cosi tanto è difficile portarmi dietro outfit cosi “ingombranti”. Un look più romantico del solito, ed anche decisamente più italiano :)

Lottie & Calvin

You thought it was Kate, didn’t you?

Lottie Moss (Kate’s little sister) is the new face of a Calvin Klein reissue collection launching today and the images of her sporting some classic CK pieces take us back to Kate’s days (20 years ago) as the face of the brand…

Dare I ask…who wore it best?

In the spirit of all things summer (and France)…

Camille Rowe is collaborating with Reformation on a 70s style collection that is every bit Jane and Françoise worthy. How could you not feel like a French babe in those lace up shorts?

“This is an Alaïa!”

“An a’whata?!”

Whether or not you’ve seen Clueless ( it was an epic 90′s flick and a major contributor to my already growing interest in fashion), Alaïa is like “a totally important designer.” The crème de la crème.

I came across this little bag while Claudia was carrying it, and simply fell for it’s delicate yet tough ways.

Bag available at Kirna Zabete.

DENIM VS DENIM

DenimVSDenim2 Denim Jacket 1: ZARA  |  Denim jacket 2: ASOS

Trying to find me the ideal denim jacket is no easy task. First, I don’t like when jackets are too short, yeah they make legs look longer but I don’t want to make my torso look tiny so I always try look for the long version of everything. I often go to shops and try on amazing things that are “just a bit too short” and wonder;”Why on earth couldn’t they make it just a few centimeters longer?!”. And this happens with pretty much everything, pants, leather jackets, blazers, you get the idea.
I found these 2 denim jackets which apparently seem long enough. Once I try them on they might look completely different but I think this will be as good as it gets.
What do you think? ASOS or ZARA? … I think I might go for the ASOS version.

Summer Undies

Okay, okay. I know I said my favorite underwear was black, but it’s summer!

And I can’t think of any color that looks better than white against tanned skin. It’s sexy, simple, no frills– the most basic pair of undies. Very Premiers Desirs come to think of it!

What do you think, is white in for the summer?

*That’s a French film from the 80s – very sexy!

PS: This pair is from Skin!

Porto Cervo

NIN_3572

Porto Cervo last weekend: two days with what I consider my “Vuitton family” to celebrate the summer which finally arrived. With jumps in the crystal clear water, sun, laughs and friends.

Porto Cervo lo scorso weekend: due giorni insieme a quella che ormai per me è la “famiglia Vuitton” per celebrare insieme l’estate finalmente arrivata. Tra sole, bagni nell’acqua cristallina, risate ed amici.
