Over The Knee Help!

Last year I got a pair of flat OTK boots on super sale.

They were perfect. Mid-thigh hitting dreams, really. But then, to my horror, I couldn’t walk more than a block without them falling to my mid-calf. WT$%$F . So, I tried several things:

1. Wearing them with jeans – that oughta keep them tight, right? Think again.
2. I devised a plan of only taking cars wherever I wore them. Turned out to be too costly.
3. Took them to a shoe doctor on the suggestion of a friend who said they could put boning in the back to keep them up. Well, they couldn’t.
4. I found a stir-up contraption that is used for thigh-high stockings. I fastened them to my boots, but the problem here is that I now have large elastic straps showing (imagine suspenders connected to the top my boots) and you can’t really wear those all the time.

So here’s my question, is there a solution? Or are my OTK boots DOA ? help!

It Takes Two

I love hearing the stories that come with jewelry. How a piece was made specifically with someone in mind, or brought back from a far away destination.

This Hérmes necklace has a duplicate, a twin, that is currently in Paris, worn around my best friend’s neck. How cool is that? They’re like the biggest friendship bracelets you’ve ever seen.

Do you have special stories behind some of your jewelry, too?

Necklace, Hérmes.

Women In Clothes

Ever wondered what a discussion on style between hundreds of women would be like?

Super loud haha. Well, it would probably be a little crazy but also very powerful. Vive les femmes! ;)

The book Women In Clothes has been passed around the Studio recently, and we all love it. It explores the relationship women have with their clothes, with everyone from Lena Dunham to Kim Gordon. But what has us most engaged are the tales of how each woman has taken different paths — not just in terms of style but also life — to get to where they are.

The questions asked in the book are about style but also think beyond it, in a very insightful way: what are some things you admire about how other women present themselves? And can be answered beyond the concept of fashion.

It’s been making us all rethink the way we approach, curate and style our wardrobes. All of the women documented talk about how an outfit always affects their mood, and we get that. Does what you wear impact how you feel, too?

Alexa Chung has created her own collection of jeans—a collaboration which is happening with denim brand AG Adriano Goldschmied.

The “Alexa Chung for AG” capsule will include 20 pieces, ranging from overalls to jeans and denim dresses to miniskirts, all designed by Chung herself and launches tomorrow HERE.

“The collection is inherently the missing pieces of dream denim wardrobe, which, as ever, is predominantly inspired by a late Sixties, early Seventies aesthetic,” Chung told Women’s Wear Daily.

CUSTOM MADE

AndyTorresFerragamo5AndyTorresFerragamo2AndyTorresFerragamo4AndyTorresFerragamo6 AndyTorresFerragamo3 AndyTorresFerragamo7SHOES: Customised Salvatore Ferragamo

When Ferragamo asked me if I wanted to customise their iconic Vara shoe myself I got extremely excited. I went into the website and I started playing with all the colour combinations they had and I have to confess, it took me quite a bit of time to come up with a design that completely represented what I wanted to wear.

The crazy part is, when I initially saw this stripped fabric I thought to myself; “Thats not really me”, so I went and browsed all the colours they had in patent leather. “What about the black version with mint green bows? Yeah I could work with that!”, “Nope, thats too predictable for me”, “What about the black on black?!”, “Seriously? Black on black? Be creative!!!”
I went through every single colour combination, questioning my reasoning every single time until I went back to the one I didn’t even consider in the beginning; “You know what, I think I kind of like the stripped fabric one, actually I kind of really love it, it could be very edgy!”
I started playing with that one until I came to choose the heel: “Jeez! You can have a mirror heel too?! Yessss!”
And thats how I came up with this design…You can also customise your own Vara or Varina shoe on the Salvatore Ferragamo website but only until the end of January and sadly only across Europe. I am really curious with colour combination you end up designing yourself!

My January 1st 2015 in photos: I woke up at a friends’ house in Malibu and I basically spent all day walking on different beaches, waiting for the sun to set.
Thinking about how 2014 was a dream with eyes wide open, which gave me even more energy for 2015.
I feel like a lion, and I want to give you (and myself) even more.

Il mio primo Gennaio 2015 in foto: mi sono svegliata a casa di amici a Malibu e ho passato praticamente tutto il giorno camminando per spiagge diverse, aspettando il tramonto.
Pensando a quanto l’anno appena finito sia stato un sogno ad occhi aperti, che mi ha dato ancora più energia per affrontare quello appena iniziato. Mi sento un leone, e voglio darvi (e dare a me stessa) ancora di più.

I have been browsing and since I’ve become quite picky when I shop, I literally think about buying something for days and days before I actually go for it. Most of the times I end up regretting waiting so long, because by the time I make up my mind the item is obviously gone in my size…

In the desert

3U5A3209

I like starting 2015 like this.. Awesome news on Instagram and going back a few days, with these photos shot in Palm Springs desert on Christmas Eve with my mum and sisters.
It was the most different yet beautiful Christmas Eve ever. So beautiful we decided this desert trip is going to become one of our holiday traditions for the next years.

Il 2015 lo iniziamo cosi… Belle notizie su Instagram e tornando indietro di qualche giorno, con queste foto scattate nel deserto di Palm Springs la vigilia di Natale insieme a mamma e sorelline.
La vigilia di Natale più strana ed emozionante, tanto che abbiamo deciso che questa gita nel deserto diventerà una delle nostre tradizioni natalizie nei prossimi anni.

So we tried to make it rain any way… but that didn’t really work out so well (plus we like to keep it real).

EVERY PIECE HAS A STORY

As part of the “Come and See” campaign, Canon asked me to browse through my closet and find that one piece I love, my ultimate favourite and really see through the details that make that piece special. I realised this was quite challenging since I have a lot of favourite items, but then I found one piece that even though it’s relatively new, has become quite a special item for me.
I just came back from one of the most incredible road trips I have ever done in my life, some of you followed my adventures through social media and I am still sharing every single bit of it here as well, yet we haven’t got to this part yet.

While I was in Los Angeles, I had the pleasure of meeting Gary Baseman, an incredibly talented American artist who has recently worked with Coach on their new SS15 collection. When I first saw the collection during New York Fashion Week, I was blown away by the illustrations and the characters that gave life to every garment. Gary creates drawings that are a lot more than just “cute”, there’s such depth, beautiful darkness about them. You can’t ever fully understand that before you have actually met him though, when you get to sit and listen to him tell you his story. After I met him I started to see his art in a completely different way, you understand the characters better, there’s such sorrow about some of them yet others bring you joy and happiness.

This Coach bag is a part of their collaboration with Gary, where he design the whole print and I was lucky enough to have him sign it for me at the back (you can see it on the 4th picture), but then he carried on drawing the same pattern on the top part with a silver sharpie making my bag completely unique and special…This bag not only represents the fact that I got to meet such an interesting and talented man, but it will always remind me of this unforgettable road trip and my sunsets in California, that’s what makes this piece so incredibly special for me.

White Xmas

No white Xmas this time… Could this be the reason why I’m unconsciously wearing all white in these days? :)

Passerò, per la prima volta nella mia vita, Natale fuori dall’Italia, nella mia nuova casa a Los Angeles.
Sarà l’assenza sicura di neve che inconsciamente mi fa vestire completamente di bianco in questi giorni? :)

A Striking Dress

Around this time, I would normally be going crazy trying to find the perfect last-minute outfit for New Year’s… but this year I’ll be on a beach wearing something super casual. But I saw this dress on Alana and thought how striking it is — it’s really the ultimate party dress.


The details are so intricate (you should see the embroidery up close) and — even though I don’t normally — I really like the cut outs on this. They are a little sexy but not overdone, and New Year’s is the one night you can get away with it, don’t you think? I usually go for something simple and classic, but this is look is so fun.

Dress, Mary Katrantzou.

Red carpet looks

_MG_7386

Ready for the holidays? I absolutely am… While you’re reading this post I will be traveling towards Los Angeles, where I’ll spend Christmas with my mum and sisters in my new Californian house :)
I’m still deciding the plan for New Year’s Eve but, already a month ago in New York, I started getting ready trying on some of my favourite Calvin Klein red carpet dresses, which are now iconic. Which one is your favourite?

Pronti per le vacanze? Io assolutamente si.. Mentre leggerete questo post io sarò in viaggio verso Los Angeles, dove passerò il Natale insieme a mia mamma e le mie sorelle nella mia nuova casetta Californiana :)
Sto ancora decidendo il programma per il capodanno ma, già un mese fa a New York, mi ero portata avanti provando, alcuni degli abiti da red carpet diventati iconici per Calvin Klein. Quale preferite?

CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION DRESSES

The Blanket Scarf

It’s here, the snow has arrived.

 

And I’ve realized the only solution other than wearing a sleeping bag outside is a blanket scarf. It’s basically a massive piece of fabric (if you happen to dabble in sewing, about two yards!), that you can wrap and wrap and fall asleep in. Great for hiding your ears, folding over as a vest under a coat, and… okay… also great for hiding under.

I have a couple that I love, one from White+Warren which actually doubles as my couch throw — and I just found this one from Vince, with a little pattern to mix up my generally monochromatic wardrobe. If I can suggest one accessory for winter, it’s a blanket scarf!

What’s your solution to keeping warm in the winter?

Scarf, Vince

Be Mine

The perfect stocking stuffer comes stuffed inside a quaint box too.


Boobs might not be my biggest attribute, however, I do like to dress them up with something nice when I’m not busy freeing the nipple. The simple bra and panty set have just the right amount of sexy-meets-everyday wear-ability, may it be with a t-shirt and jeans or a simple black dress. I especially like their new grey color – perfect for those wintery days ahead of us!

And in case you’re not a triangle bra type of girl – they’re coming out with an underwire version just as chic next spring!

Grey bra and panty, Valentine NYC

We’ve Got to Hol-i-day

At the studio, we love getting new magazines in… and one of our favorites is Holiday.

It’s so beautiful — the images, the creativity, even the layout. For the holiday season (pun intended!) they collaborated with Edwina de Charette de la Contrie to create a tote with leather piping and an interior pouch.

In a city of tote bags, it’s nice to use one that will really last and be perfect for carrying magazines.

unnamed-1

I’ve only shown you a bit of my Los Angeles house so far..
There still is a lot of work to do, furniture to change, walk-in closet to create from scratch..
But there is a part of my Californian house that I always am so thrilled about: my backyard, where I spend a lot of my free time reading and chatting with friends, and where I shot these photos.

Vi ho mostrato ancora poco della mia casa di Los Angeles…
In realtà ci sono ancora molti lavori da fare, mobili da cambiare, cabina armadio da creare da zero…
Ma di una parte della mia dimora californiana sono troppo entusiasta: il mio backyard, dove passo gran parte del mio tempo libero leggendo e chiaccherando con gli amici e dove ho scattato queste foto.

Cos’ I’m Worth It

COS is finally opening December 5th in NY!?!@


I’m excited, no longer do I have to wait to go to Europe to debate this coat or that coat. I can stroll down the street and do it. In case the coat G bought didn’t entice you enough, my favorite blazer of all time is also from there… So let’s just say I’m hoping to have just as much luck stateside. What I think sets COS aside from every other major store that’s set up shop in the states is the pieces are so simple, you really never know where they came from. They’re sophisticated without being old and so classic they last years.

What’s your favorite piece from COS?

Métiers d’Art

A little fun from the ever whimsical mind of Karl Lagerfeld.


We’ve never known Karl to do anything understated when it comes to presenting collections, and pre-fall is no exception. In case your invite to the Métiers d’Art show in Salzabar also got lost in the mail (ehemm, hi Karl — I’ve got extra miles!)… he’s been so kind as to release a fairytale video to coincide with the show today.

Warning: Cara Delevingne sings! Don’t say we didn’t warn you…

What do you think?

SAILING TO CATALINA

E9E7 E3 E5 E1 E10 E8E6 E4 E11 E2Ph by Nagi Sakai for Marie Claire Italia Sep. 2014

When I found this editorial I felt like a kid in a candy store, like I’ve found a gold mine, an inspiration Aladdin’s cave. I guess if I had to visually describe my style or my preference in styling, this would be it, nothing more, nothing less. This is perfection…

PEDRO LOURENÇO x NIKE

IMG_4114 IMG_4117IMG_4116 IMG_4115
I am madly in love with the collection that Pedro Lourenço designed for Nike. Believe it or not, I probably spend 40% of my time wearing sports clothes, so I’m glad I can go to the gym wearing clothes that don’t make me feel frumpy and can still be stylish.

BOOTS >>  1) ASOS  |  2) TABITHA SIMMONS  |  3)ALEXANDER WANG  |  4)JIMMY CHOO  |  5) SENSO  |  6) ASOS

While browsing for the perfect boots for Winter, I came across these flat boots with a twist. I am really into ankle boots for a while but all of these have something special about them. Whether its a cool buckle, a special embossed print or a discreet chain, I am having a hard time picking out a favourite pair.

Chapeau Bleu

I have kind of a small head, so hats are… well, a big deal for me.

It can be hard to find one that fits well (not every head is one-size-fits-all, people!) and looks good. The one I’ve been wearing throughout winter for a couple of years now is so big that it flies off my head every time there’s a gust of wind (about every five minutes in New York winter!!)! But it does have a leather strap.

Unfortunately, I end up tying the leather strap so tightly under my chin that it looks far less chic and a lot more… farmer. And sadly, I don’t pull off farmer well.

So, I’ve been on the lookout for a new winter hat but this time I have another requirement (demanding, I know). I don’t want any old hat that fits, but one that stands out a little… maybe a hat in a striking color.

This blue hat might be nice.

 

What do you think? What hat are you coveting right now??

Hat by Topshop.

A Simple Curve

I’m a creature of habit when it comes to jewelry…


…I love simple things and have a tendency to wear the same pieces every day: gold Saint Laurent bracelet, vintage silver double heart ring, an open hexagon ring from Aesa and super simple, mis-matched earrings from Brvtvs and EM Jewelry.

Needless to say, I’m not the layer-it-on type of girl. Finding pieces that fit with my permanent collection is tricky, but there’s something so easy about this bracelet from Sayaka Davis… the way it curves around the wrist so delicately but, since it has a clasp, is entirely secure (important for me, the need to feel strapped in). Plus, I think it’s kind of sexy for a bracelet, the Angelina Jolie of slit dresses for the wrist.

What will inspire your wrists?

Pin It

After a long time on the sidelines, the brooch is back. In a big way.

We started to see traces of its return a couple of years ago (throwback to the Dries Fall 2013 show…remember the crystal insects and lizards??) but it’s only in recent months that we’ve seen it on the streets. People are embracing pinning again — but not just on their sweaters or the lapels of their coats…

We’re seeing brooches decorating handbags (where silk scarves once draped) or fixed to beanies, which is a super easy way to make a winter necessity more unique.

Are you wearing brooches again? How do you wear yours??
