Today...art!


I have been celebrating for some days with relatives and friends, and, as that means also long lunches and dinners ( look at my waist, do you think my coat is a bit too tight today? )...


...I decided to have something different. So I went to town  and spend a morning visiting a museum


MAO is the Oriental Art Museum of Torino


For the occasion I put on my light colour dress ( Max Mara ) with a silk shirt         ( Seventy )


At my back you can see the Japanese garden which is just at the entrance of the museum


Isn't this face a real beauty?


The place is a XVIII century building


Which I find as wonderful as the museum 


I hope you will enjoy the visit just as I  did...visiting a museum has been my way to start the new year.
Happy 2014!!!

  1. I cannot see a single extra gramme on you waist ;-) Lovely look, I like the light colours! I have also been wearing shirts under sleeveless dresses and some posts showing that look will be up in the near future.
    Great photos!
    Happy New Year, Dan!

    1. I am happy to read that no extra weight is visible after Christmas holidays! I am a fan of sleeveless dresses and I wear them in many ways: with and without shirt, with a cardigan, and changing belts to have a different look...so I am glad to know that the look will be up!!

  4. Felice Anno Nuovo, Dana! Questo museo è un posto bellissimo, è un buon modo per iniziare l'anno, arte e cultura. Mi piace il tuo vestito. Mi piace la morbidezza del suo colore, e il design, così semplice. Il collo di pelliccia è fantastico. La vostra silhouette, ei tuoi capelli sono bellissimi.

  6. No I can't see that your coat are to tight, you look pretty small at you waist. Your dress is very nice, I like Max Mara ver much, so timeless. And it's a great Idee wear a sleeve under the dress.

  7. Ah, the Christmas kilo...I don't see it Dan...the cream coloured dress shows a svelte figure. I love the idea of wearing winter white during the winter, and the setting, also in creams, is beautiful. Good idea to start the year with some culture!

    1. Hi dear Sue, it's nice to know that you can't see my Christmas kilo!
      The museum opened some years ago, but I had never found the time to go and visiting! Sometimes I think that blogging have a positive influence on me!!

  8. Fortunately the extra weight does not show (or are you holding your stomach in haha). Lovely dress. I never think of buying a sleeveless dress and then putting a shirt underneath it. This is a new area for me.
    You look very nice and creamy. Like your hair too. This museum is a wonderful light and warm place to photograph, you smart devil,
    That fur collar is a great piece, isn't it?

    1. You have got the trick, Greetje! Yes, in the photos I am holding my stomach in!! Too many panettoni ( it's the Christmas cake in Italy ) made me put on weight!
      I think I will have some cappuccino-lunch in the future!
      Of course I am wearing a faux fur collar...

  9. That's such a great way to kick off the year! Our town has an exceedingly small museum (no joke, you can walk through it all in under five minutes), and though I love it and the memories of spending many an afternoon there as a child, it would be great to have a large museum or art gallery around these parts so that I could follow your lead and inject an extra big dose of culture into the beginning of 2014. Who knows, maybe one year we'll be down in Vancouver for this holiday (which is about 4.5 hours away) and I can do just that there.

    Tons of hugs & countless happy New Year wishes, beautiful lady!

  13. This light colored dress is speaking to me and with your tight and booties I am smitten! The museum pictures look great and I wish I could be there touring this museum with you. I think this is a good place to take pictures, clear and bright images. The garden makes a great background. You choose just the right tights for every outfit. Great that you could enjoy some time with your family during the holidays and your attractive figure looks lovely!

  14. Some weeks ago, you gave me a good advice and I took photos in an exibition. The result is very good because, as you say, there is a lot of light there, so thanks ! While I was posting I couldn't wait you to see it, and tell me your opinion...
    p.s.
    it would be wonderful touring a museum together!
