Back to… Black jumpsuit

It is the last day of September but it still feels like summer with the sun shining and high temperatures here in Milan.

The Rich Faithful Brands

I’m still waiting for the real winter to come while keeping on wearing skirts with no tights.

If anyone had any doubts whether global warming was real or not, these 3 months of sun and no rain/snow…

Omega Shanghai – Travel Style

Recently I was featured on my friend Lucia’s blog on Vanity Fair in the Top 10 Looks of the Week. The feature was referring to my Barcelona trip and pointing out that when travelling I’m not wearing the tourist uniform. It makes me sad knowing that the tourist uniform has come to be a baggy pair of pants and a cotton t-shirt paired…

Park Guell

Park Guell isn’t just a park, you can’t actually do many of the activities you would do in a normal park given that it is located on a rocky mountain and filled with vegetation. You can do just two activities, one is visit the open air museum of Antoni Gaudi’s works around the monumental area, the second is having a…

The Perfect Night

Ladylike, the word that once described the refined girls from society, raised studying music and arts while waiting to have a good marriage, is still much in vogue today. The meaning of course has changed over decades departing from the idea of a woman who should be instructued by acceptable social norms that restrain freedom.  Appearance as the only expression…

Winter Sun

The sun finally came out for a day in a month that has been raining non-stop. This made it possible for me to wear this light green coat from Lazzari which has been standing in the wardrobe for a month. Weather has always effected the color palette in my daily style preferring black and leather on rainy days,  and going…
