Just My Cup Of Tea

Ok, I need no words to describe Prada FW 2010/11 collection. I'm probably not objective, but with all those 50s touches Prada's ladies are just what I dream of.













The colors, the elegance of knitwear - the fab light blue sweaters, the headbands and the perfect cable knit socks - the impeccable embroidered dresses and embellished pointy stilettos, the bow belts and the Oh-My-God sunglasses. Nothing too bold, a quiet collection definitely ladylike. So retro, yet so modern.

...So Betty Draper!!


Well, it's simply my cup of tea...

In Flower

Last November I posted the beautiful picture below and I wrote I didn't remember where it was from.


One of my lovely readers, Julie, left me a comment, telling me it was first published in an old issue of Vogue Us, 2006/2007 circa.

Julie was so adorable to send me the scans of the whole editorial too. And I'm sorry it took me so long to publish them!

Flowers Bomb: A Colour Splash From The Italian Fashion Bloggers. Get Ready, Spring Is On Its Way!

It's raining. Again. This is what's happening almost daily since December. It snowed too and considering I live by the sea it snowed too much!

I can't stand winter any longer. I want spring to come soon, I want sun, warm weather and...flowers! My beloved flowers...I could wear florant prints everyday I guess!


So today, 24th February, the Italian Fashion Bloggers are declaring war to bad weather. We are a floral army who fight against the Winter of our discontent!


All the girls (and there are a couple boys too) in the list below will post a picture of a floral outfit today, so go take a look at all the blogs linked!

She Did It Again

Every time I spot a picture of this lady on The Sartorialist I have to save it in my inspiration folder.

Shoes To Heart

It took me awhile, but they're finally with me and I'm in love.
I don't mind if they're from last season. This is a long lasting affair...


They look and smell like Barbie's shoes and are oh so perfect with a serious little black dress!

Pick A Flower

I love little dresses, you know. I heart flowers, you should know this too. I adore Erdem, you could imagine this...


I looked at pictures of Erdem Spring/Summer 2010 collection with a big smile on my face, those flower prints are marvellous - I thought. Only when I took a closer look at detail shots I realized the flowers are not printed but for the biggest part they're actually sewn and embroidered on fabric. It's magic!


May I have every single piece of this collection?

Non Plus One

When you say Opening Ceremony, Jason Schwartzman and Kirsten Dunst all in the same sentence you're probably saying something cool.

I adore video lookbooks, short movies and all that sort of things so when I heard about Opening Ceremony Spring/Summer movie, directed by Gia Coppola and Tracy Antonopoulos, starring Schwartzman&Dunst with a song by Coconut Records as soundtrack...well I was pretty excited.

But when I heard the directors were inspired by the films of the French Nouvelle Vague I was definitely in awe!
