Red lipstick and Christmas decorations

My mirror  recently was reflecting a more tired and older face ...
( can a mirror  shows also your  soul???)

So I tried a simple, not invasive solution which could help: 
a very bright red lipstick!

I usually am  wearing neutral colours, but at the moment a vitaminic colour probably suits me better...and I gave it a chance!

Secondly, I wanted a warmer atmosphere at home

hence, on Sunday afternoon, I spent some time decorating it for Christmas

I know it's a bit early, but ... why don't break the rule ?

( old pair of boots )

Next week ... my third, most important decision!!

Many thanks, my dear friends for all your supporting comments on last week's post...♥♥

At the end ...

... and, at the end, Mr.Bangio has gone

I had to open my hand, and let him go

I took him to the vet and, in my arms, little by little he got asleep

And, silently, died.

I did it for love, just for love
with broken heart.

All of a sudden I felt the frost of winter ...

Have a little faith ...


We are having an extraordinary hot weather for the season. Nice! But  it also has negative sides...  
Am I supposed to change clothes in my wardrobe and then, after a short time,  doing the  job again??
I definitely won't!!

I had just taken out warm sweaters and all my coats and now  light weight stuff's stored!


All I can do is ... grin and bear it!

MaxMara group

and wearing something which doesn't make me feel like a penguin in a sunny desert!!

Have you ever matched the top of a sweatshirt to a classic pen skirt?
Today I have given it a chance!

Then I shoot

In the same place where I took this funny photo of Greetje a fourtnight ago

Now I am trustfully waiting to wear my winter clothings.

 As the signboard says, when you have a problem ...
have a little faith and it will all work out!!

Taking photos with Greetje

There are times when two friends  share something different from shopping 

And spend two days together

Taking photos

And strolling 

in ancient streets.

They enjoy modern art 

( sometimes not easy to understand 

but beautifully situated in historic contexts ).

They also had a third day, of course ... dedicated to shopping!

Even if I had promised to keep her away from temptations ... I knew  that Greetje of No Fear of Fashion, wouldn't  have left Italy without buying new clothes !!

It's time...

The season of coats has arrived earlier this year ... and I wasn't ready yet!
I remember I usually have time to find all my winter stuff until the end of October, and take things to the laundrey for the last ironing

But not this year!
As I hadn't fully reorganized my closet with warm winter clothings, last Friday I quickly had to pick out thick wool sweaters and one of my coats ...

While I was searching, my old ( faux ) fur collar came out!
( I have got a full set of them!! )

I like when I find loved things which I had forgotten to own!!

Of course ... I needed  for something new ...
( window shops are soooo tempting in the city ... )

You can understand ... Autumn is too melhancolic without a little shopping ...

My friend Laura


I have been wearing often my white skirt 
( some of you surely remember it! )

And today I matched it to a light gray silk sweater ...

I still have  the nail polish I wore yesterday
for a special occasion

When I met Laura, my new Russian friend!

She had recognized me in a shop and kindly asked  if I was the blogger of The pretty cute!

We decided to spend an afternoon together because

 had so many things to talk about and ... a couple of sweets to taste!

It was a deligthful time and ... 
... I feel that now I have a more friend!

Boots (and local traditions)

Here temperatures have dropped during the week

And consequentely my clothings changed!
So, sweater, fake fur collar and ( new ) boots for me...

But it seems I wasn't the most elegant this time!
 Odd guys were wandering about last Sunday

Chatting in their old style costumes

Beautiful  ladies were sitting on the city's benches

And other ladies were having fun together ...

Fashion has drastically changed through the time


nowadays boots can be  so ... tres chic!

Until next week, my dears!
