New and old


Les Copains


Let's start with the new : my coat.The end of the season is the best time for purchases, and  I could buy this piece for the third part od its initial price ... 


Short, checked, black and white, egg shape.
I have a fancy for checks!


And It goes with my brown trousers!

Max&co.-Marella


Then comes the old : can you believe that my sweater Is about ten years old?
It is.

Morellato


Old also my necklace. 
Pearls generally add a very classic accent , but this is not the case...

Coccinelle


Old also my bag, but quality items can last very long!


I took the photos at Eataly:a sort of supermarket which sells only selected food. You can also eat there, drink a beer or just a cup of coffee or taste  an ice-cream.


A last photo before I go ,  have ... good end of the season picks, girls!

    1. The winter is long here, and so it's better to owe more than one coat. Different shapes and colours make cold days a bit ... less boring!

  3. Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky; in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.

  5. Great purchase this coat!! I love it. We would look good together, you in this black and white beauty and me in my fuchsia MM egg shaped coat. Seeing the Eataly building makes me want to jump in a plane to you. It has the same colour as your jumper. Indeed good quality lasts.
