Marc Jacobs bag and leather jacket


Going out with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs bag has been one of the highlights of the weekend, together with sunny weather ! I was finally able to wear a leather jacket :).
This Mango dress was waiting for me in my closet with tag still attached and it was screaming to get my attention...I have so many hangers in my closets that it's hard to find something, this is truly the time of the year when I get completely lost in my closets...it isn't totally warm yet so wool clothes and coats are still around and there's new things being added all the time !.
You can easily sport me talking by myself when I can't find something, it's not that I am a crazy, at least not totally...I am just a shopaholic that feels defeated from the concept of space !. Do you also complain and get nervous when you can't find something or do you still have control over your own clothes ? Let me know that I am not alone, please :-).


Uscire con la mia nuova borsa Marc by Marc Jacobs è stata sicuramente una delle cose migliori di questo weekend, insieme al tempo che è stato soleggiato e caldo ! Finalmente ho potuto indossare una giacca di pelle. Questo abito di Mango mi stava aspettando nell'armadio con l'etichetta ancora attaccata da un bel po' e stava gridando per attirare la mia attenzione...ho così tante stampelle nei miei armadi che è molto difficile trovare qualcosa, questo è il periodo dell'anno in cui mi sento più impotente di fronte all'avanzare del disordine...non è ancora abbastanza caldo da poter abbandonare abiti in lana e cappotti e in più ci sono nuovi acquisti che continuo ad aggiungere !.
Mi capita spesso di parlare da sola e mi lamento di non riuscire a trovare un abito, non è che io sia pazza, almeno non completamente...sono solo una shopaholic che si sente ormai sconfitta dal concetto di spazio !. Anche voi vi lamentate spesso e vi innervosite quando non riuscite a trovare qualcosa o avete ancora il controllo totale dei vostri abiti ? Fatemi sapere che non sono l'unica, per favore :-).



Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs
Studded belt: Imperial
Leather jacket: Nice girls
Sunnies: Ray Ban


Ankle boots: The Seller


Spiked bracelet: Asos
Silver bracelets: Tiffany
Gold ring: BVLGARI BZero
Nail polish: OPI - lucky lucky lavender with glitter tips


I don't like to complain but lately there's something that bugs me...I notice many average brands have lifted their prices in a way that has no meaning. Example: a couple of days ago I entered at Liu-Jo shop and was very surprised to see their prices went pretty sky-high and the quality stays the same. I had seen a denim jacket with a line of sequinned pearls and it costed as much as a leather jacket !. I am sorry cause I have seen the same thing happening to another brand, Sixty was a brand I adored but I don't buy as much as I used to from them cause prices went ridiculously high and the quality didn't improve.
I think this is a no win strategy cause people will either go to higher quality brands or if they need o save, will go to low cost brand.
Another thing that bugs me is that a few shops in my town sell clothes from abroad online shops at a higher price...don't they know that now that most of online shops sell worldwide customers can check on the price ? It's not a good thing when you find out only after your purchase that you could have ordered that dress online for a much cheaper price !. Italians: do you agree ? And if you are not in Italy: does it happen in your country, as well ?. Anyway, as a result of this I find myself more and more attracted to online shopping !.


Non mi piace lamentarmi ma ultimamente qualcosa mi infastidisce...noto che molti brand di medio livello hanno alzato i prezzi in modo davvero ingiustificato. L'altro giorno, ad esempio, sono entrata nel monomarca Liu-Jo e ho trovato dei prezzi molto alti per la qualità dei prodotti. Avevo puntato una giacchina in jeans che solo per un filo di perle applicate costava come una giacca di pelle !.
Credo che questa non sia una strategia vincente perché le persone preferiranno puntare o su brand dalla qualità maggiore o, se vogliono risparmiare, andranno sul low cost !. Mi dispiace perché ho visto accadere una cosa simile alla Sixty, brand che adoravo e che ora uso poco proprio perché a mio modesto parere i prezzi sono troppo alti e la qualità non è cresciuta.
Credo questa strategia non sia premiante: a questo punto molta gente preferirà puntare su brand di livello più alto oppure si dirigerà su brand low cost che hanno almeno un prezzo inferiore.
Un'altra cosa fastidiosa: alcuni negozi della mia città vendono abiti che si possono comprare online da negozi esteri ad un prezzo notevolmente superiore...non sanno forse che ormai, dato che la maggior parte dei negozi online spediscono in tutto il mondo, i clienti possono controllare il prezzo ? Non è piacevole scoprire solo dopo l'acquisto di aver pagato inutilmente un prezzo gonfiato. Italiani: siete d'accordo con me ? E se non siete in Italia: accade anche nel vostro paese ?. Io, di conseguenza, mi scopro sempre più fan dello shopping online !.

  1. Your outfit is fabulous as usual, love the combination of your dress and the Marc Jacobs bag!

    As for what you said about the brands, I totally agree with you. I have noticed this situation when I ordered a bag online and then noticed a few bags from the same collection in a local boutique... three times more expensive. Or, better yet, having noticed that many people paid attention to a certain dress, they raised its price overnight... unbelievable, right?

  2. Ciao, Vale!
    WOW, you look gorgeous!
    Beautiful bag! Bright colors are always flattering and jazz up a subdued outfit. Plus, red with fuchsia are still a super-hot color match!

  8. Great bag and dress! It's been getting warmer in Helsinki as well, but it's not that warm enough to leave all the coats, scarfs and boots "behind".

    Yep, I have realized the same thing with some stores in Helsinki, they could be selling the same clothes which I can find online as well, but they're much more expensive at stores, then online, therefore I rarely go to shop anything at the stores anymore.

    I also do get upset sometimes and get so hopeless when I try to find something in my closet and then get the feeling that I can't find anything and that I have nothing to wear. I hate those moments, but I guess that's just how us women are :D

  35. Ciao Vale, quella borsa sta davvero solleticamndo la mia vista, ma quanto è bella?
    Non sapevo di liu jo ma vedo i prezzi di zara che sono davvero esagerati. Anche per me questo alla fine non pagherà.
    Di bloggers non sono convinta perchè a me non porta vistie anzi secondo me si ruba le mie e finirà che mi tolgo

  58. La borsa è bellissima e anche il vestito!
    Riguardo ai negozi e alle strategia che hanno adottato,concordo pienamente!!
    Certo è bello poter comprare e indossare una giacca di jeans Liu.jo,ma onestamente,se devo pagarla quanto una di pelle,preferisco comprare quella in pelle!!
    Inoltre,non tutti possono permettersi di pagare certe cifre!
    Io ad esempio amo Moschino,ma erto non posso chiedere ai miei di comprarmi un paio di scarpe da 200 euro e passa,quindi devo acquistare in negozi o brand low cost!
    Quoto,quindi,ciò che hai detto!!
    Baci baci C.♥
