The dress

The first part of today's post is for Greetje, who wanted to see the dress I was wearing in my last post. In fact it wasn't clearly visible in the photo of me sitting on the bench.


Now I am wearing it with my  boots, a blue bag 

and a red necklace.

As temperatures are low at the moment here, I am wearing the dress on another one and then, when I go out, I add a long candigan on top.

By the way, the dinner which I had been talking of last time, has been a success, ( it also included homemade  tortellini, and that sounds really unbeliable !! )

With Christmas and New Year's day which are at the back, now there is only one celebration left, on the 6th of January

In Italy, according to the tradition, an old, ugly woman, flying on her broom, will bring presents to good children. For those who misbehave, there will be a stocking filled with ( sweet ) coal...

If you  hung your stocking ( I always do ), I hope there will be some presents in it!

Waiting for Christmas ...

Well, it seems impossible to me, (!) but next Wednesday it will be the Christmas eve again ...

I am out for the last presents, as this year I am definitely late!

There are so many other things I have yet to do! In fact I will also be the host of the Eve dinner ... ( you have read well, that sounds incredible also to me! But as the ancient Romans said : semel in anno licet insanire!! )

I have decorated my home for enjoying a pleasant atmosphere,

I have chosen a sparkling bracelet, 

Now I  just have to buy  some delicious food...

... and wish you all the best as well as the sweetest Christmas day!

P.s. the Roman saying in English means: once a year you can do something really crazy!

Leather colour accessories and ... the city by night!

I was in the waiting room of a medical center the other day. As the place was well lighted and there was no one around ... why don't shoot for a post??  ( it's surprising how creative a blogger can be ... :-)

I was out from the morning that day so I was wearing a black and beige dress, a short cardigan, a beautiful red necklace ( a present from a dear friend )

and  leather colour boots and bag ( for me a very versatile colour and easy to match )

Things went on longer than my husband and I had thought and it was dark when we went out

so could enjoy the sight of the city with Christmas lights.

That day was the anniversary of our marriage

so we decided to stay out for dinner ... 

I wasn't wearing an evening dress but I was happy  all the same!

Die hard ... :-)

Hi girls! First of all I want to thank all of you for the comments on my last post and for the mails I have received ... they have touched my heart and supported me after the accident in which mr. Bangio and I have been involved. Now the worst has gone and we are feeling better and better...

As you can see, we are now ready to post!

And I like starting again with  the photos of the exhibition I visited a couple of days  before the accident...

... stylish, ladylike hats ... Little works of art!

So beautiful and feminine,

So funny!!

Doesn't, this one remind you Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Well, my hat has very little in common with those fantastic old ones!

I love the extra touch hats give to an outfit, but , have you ever noticed the way they leave your hair??

A little time...

A week ago, ( 12th Nov. ) while were crossing a street, mr. Bangio and  I were hit by a car.
Now we both need  a little time to put pieces together again, and  will be back  as soon as possible ...

Blue pants ...

Before you go on seeing the post, I have to warn that yesterday was one of those very bad-hair day, one of those that can make you feel at unease ...

Probably the same happens to everybody sometimes ...

Here I am!

It also was one of those ( few ) days when I especially love pants...

And a pair of blue slim-fit trousers goes perfect with a short and large grey sweater...

I don't often wear pants, but today they make me forget my hair!

By the way, for those of you who are wondering about mr. Bangio's outfit ...

... he was wearing his red coat! He is an old guy, you know ...

... and so wise ! He never worries about his look!!

Poncho and chestnuts

Max Mara group

At the enf of October I generally start appreciating the autumn ( probably because the summer is a faded memory  )

enjoying its quiet beauty

 and wearing soft, warm clothes.


It's time to wear my poncho again!
Today the sun and light make the day very pleasant ...

But a perfect fall day couldn't be really perfect without  chestnuts!

which remind me when I lived with my parents in a big cottage in the country. Every year we prepared chestnuts in the garden and they were delicious!!

Sweet memories... sweet and a bit melancholic just like autumn...

I missed a post...

Have you noticed? I didn't post last week...
...the fact is that I  have been overworking, and, a more reason was that  it poured nearly the whole week here ...

and I had no extra photos to post!

The most relevant event of my week has been a nice flower and flea market  which I visited in the only sunny day ( ! )

I was wearing a two-fabrics dress

Which at a first sight looks like a blouse and a skirt.

In the market there was a lot of ( very photogenic )stuff
and that, perhaps, was one of the  reasons why I visited it!

while I was strolling about the flea market, something caught my attention

so I brought home this cute plaster sparrow ...

 which is now waiting for me  on the coffee table of my sitting room ...
