Christmas week

It was a cold day last Sunday
 but I still had to buy the last presents and then take photos for the post
 so I made my way to the city with hopeful intentions 

But, in the craziness of Christmas time  things turned out to be different ...

So I got my photos at home 
( with bad light which of course  means bad photos )


I was wearing a long dress, the jacket  a warm coat 
and a pair of my booties. 

Plus a big pair of earrings 
( I am trying to make something like ... a D&G style ! )

I think that I have a lot to try yet, but they are lightweight and colourful.

I promise good photos next time !

A different post

This is a different post ,  with photos of very different subjects. Each one is of something that I have seen during the week and loved . 
Like the beautiful plant growing on a wall.
(I don't know the name , do you ? )

If you like, can  follow my ( at random ) thoughts  ,  are welcome ! 

In my opinion white  is one among the most sophisticated choices for the cold season.
Not very easy to wear, but
I like everything of the outfit ...
(sorry but I forgot to note the brand )

Max Mara 

But I didn't this time ! !
(One of my favourite brands )

Booties are my passion!  I have got many in different colours , but not the wonderful ones which I saw on a magazine. 


I think I could wear a floral print pair with many of my skirts !!

The reason why I love booties is because they add a modern touch to the look . 
(And my look is often quite  classic )

Ohhhhhhh,  a delightful hairstyle ! Very tempting ...
( but not sure it would look the same on me ... different hair sometimes  means different results! )

And finally, on  the matter of temptations and things I loved during the week ...
here you are the sweetest one:
frozen yoghurt with chopped  pistachios!! I could live of it!!

What do you really love? 

P.s . 
Remember to enjoy everything of your week...

A sparkling skirt

 December is here. And in a few days the streets will be crowded of people in search of gifts.
 There is a childish part of me that has always loved the sweetness of the month. 

Then, years have gone  too fast and have taken away dears.I feel some sadness, but this is life.
December is here.
I will choose pretty presents for my  (old ) relatives and friends. 
I will be happy to see  them smile.

 December is a festive month  which I start this year wearing a silk skirt . 

To feel the joy around . It's a special month ,  after all! 

A silk skirt with  beads sewed on the rim .
A marble-colour (isn't  it a fantastic way to name a colour ? ) sweater 
with tiny holes ( which I bought online ).

The burgundy nail polish and pearls add some festive .

I like pearls but think that they are a bit too classic ,  so have  recently made a necklace which reflects my actual taste.
It has smoky quartz gemstones and a thin  chain in the back 

Now I am ready.
And you ?

Like a copycat

There is a joke about being a copycat between my friend Greetje of No Fear of Fashion and me

When she gets inspired to one of my outfit she calls herself a copycat, 
but I think that we inspire each other ...
In any case today the copycat it's me!

What do I mean? 
Look at my skirt ... many of you saw the same on her!
She bought her skirt last year in Turin . I bought mine last week.
But,  can a sensible woman resist to buy an extraordinary beautiful item at an extraordinary reduced price ?
That woman  hasn't got my name! 

The skirt is by  Max Mara  and has a delicate cream colour which I matched to a burgundy long  blouse underneath a bi-colour viscose sweater ( plus one of my bags in a similar tone )

While I was shooting the other day after a whole week of rain 

Something attracted my attention ...

A drone was flying right above me and a man looked very concentrated in driving it here and there , up and down . 
I thought that men are funny guys!  
And find peculiar ways to enjoy a Sunday morning ...

... of course he probably thought the same of me, while I was trying to get good photos of my skirt!

Do you happen to be inspired by someone you know ?

Has the trend already caught you ? 

I mean...have you bought at least a pair of cropped trousers recently ?
This year they seem to be everywhere here ! 

I gave it a try .... it's something new to me . 


While I was in the fitting room of the shop, ( the assistant gave me so many clothes to try!! ) my husband bought the bag ... he acted smartly and I didn't notice until later in the street! 

The fact doubled my joy! 

It was a very lovely day!
( unfortunately a bad cold with some fever was around the corner and I missed last week's post )

Next week, darlings ....

Do you remember?

Probably you don' t  remember ,  but I already posted the skirt  in Summer . 
It's one of those pieces that you can wear all the year round  ( definitely my favourite !  )

Of course  I matched  it to a completely different top ...

And also took out of my closet a warm coat ! 

With my friend

I am ready to enjoy my day off in the centre of Turin

( gemstones from my  F/ W collection )

Oh, dear !  Am I going to do some extra shopping ???

H day

Hi! This year I happen to post on Halloween day, and so I tried to give a touch of dark mood to the whole thing 

Was there a best day to share my black O'Bag? 

To be honest, I am not a fan of Halloween celebrations and in my country they have just recently been imported, but the day is largely celebrated abroad and required an adequate post!! 

I  found an odd shop with shop windows in the theme ! 

The odd thing is that the shop windows haven't been decorated for the day but look the same  all the year round ! 
( I have never understood why )

The  merchandise they  sell has nothing to do with Halloween

Since they only sell beautiful  fabrics !

I live in a crazy country and usually don' t ask too many questions about people.
 This is a funny world after all ...

... with the most crazy combinations !

Enjoy the day 
( if you celebrate it )
