Baroque - brocade trend: Zara dress

brocade, baroque trend

After a more casual outfit based on my new wedged sneakers, it's time for a more classic "bon ton" outfit ! In these pics, taken during my latest holidays on the mountains, I am wearing a brocade dress from Zara with "diamante appliqué on neckline" (as it says on Zara website !).
I just love the cut of this dress and I bought it as soon as I saw it ! This dress follows the brocade and baroque trend that has been seen a bit everywhere for Fall-Winter '12-'13. I personally love it and I am surely going to buy something more with baroque-brocade print or fabric !.


Dopo un outfit più casual basato sulle mie nuove wedge sneakers, è tempo per un outfit più classico e bon ton ! In queste foto, scattate durante la mia ultima vacanza in montagna, indosso un abitino in broccato di Zara con applicazioni "diamante" lungo lo scollo (almeno, così viene chiamato sul sito di Zara !).
Amo il taglio di questo abito e l'ho comprato non appena l'ho visto ! Questo abito segue il trend del broccato - barocco che è stato proposto da molti brand per la stagione Autunno-Inverno '12-'13. Amo questo trend e comprerò sicuramente altro con stampa barocca o in broccato !.

I have decided to wear this cream colored dress with with my cap toed bicolor Fabi pumps. You can see the details below.

Ho deciso di abbinare a questo abitino color crema le mie pumps "cap toe" bicolori di Fabi. Potete vederle meglio nelle foto sotto.

Gucci "Joy" bag completed my afternoon look, this bag is often with me during my holidays as a real "jolly". The metallic color makes it suitable for elegant as well as with sporty outfits !. This bag was a web exclusive I ordered from Gucci website a while ago and I have been using it a lot, so I can say it was a good purchase. I love to indulge in shopping especially when it comes to bags, I think bags are the item I end up for using more, so it's the best value for money !.

La borsa "Joy" di Gucci ha completato il mio look pomeridiano; questo bauletto è spesso con me quando sono in vacanza, essendo un vero jolly ! Il color metallico lo rende adatto sia per outfit eleganti che più sportivi ! Si tratta di una esclusiva web che avevo ordinato dal sito di Gucci tempo fa e devo dire che si è trattato di un ottimo acquisto, avendolo usato parecchio. Adoro fare shopping comprando borse, sono l'articolo che finisco per sfruttare di più, per cui credo siano i soldi spesi meglio !.

The time spent on the mountains has been so fab and I still have a few outfits to show you, including a few pics of the delicious food we ate there. Fashion is not my only interest, trying new restaurants is another one for sure ! ;). Tan is fading and my wish to have food trips is kicking in !..

Il tempo trascorso in montagna è stato favoloso e ho ancora alcuni outfits da mostrarvi, incluse alcune foto del cibo delizioso che abbiamo mangiato lì. La moda non è il mio unico interesse e provare nuovi ristoranti è sicuramente un'altra attività che mi piace ! ;). L'abbronzatura sta sbiadendo e la mia voglia di gite a tema culinario sta facendosi sentire !.

Lemaré wedge sneakers

Lemaré wedge sneakers

The wedge sneakers trend is so hot right now, it all started from Isabel Marant "Beckett" shoes, now they seem to be everywhere. I am a lover of high heels and I must confess I'd rather invest all the money that Marant's cost in a pair of Louboutins, but I wanted to try the new trend and have a good looking pair of wedge sneakers myself.
I had to wait a bit before finding the perfect wedge sneakers for myself and I found them in these ones from Lemaré...they are hand made in Italy, they are pretty and so very comfy !.

Le sneakers con plateau interno sono molto di moda, tutto è iniziato con le scarpe modello "Beckett" di Isabel Marant e ora sembrano essere un po' ovunque, diversi brand si sono cimentati nella produzione di scarpe del genere. Io sono un'amante dei tacchi alti e devo confessare che preferirei investire tutti i soldi che mi costerebbero un paio di Marant in un paio di Louboutin, ma volevo comunque provare il nuovo trend con un paio di scarpe che fossero ben fatte e belle da vedere.
Ho trovato la perfetta alternativa nelle Lemaré...sono tutte fatte a mano in Italia, molto belle e sono comodissime !.

You can order Lemaré sneakers directly from the brand's Ebay store, they came to me so fastly ! I went for "Brick" because it's perfect for Fall outfits, with these colors. In these pics I am wearing the shoes with a Burgundy outfit and my new bag, the Marc by Marc Jacobs "Too hot to handle" tote. Do you like it ? I am in love with its color and the smoothness of the leather of this bag and I can already see myself bringing with me with many different outfits !.

Potete ordinare le sneakers Lemaré direttamente dal negozio Ebay del brand, mi sono arrivate molto velocemente ! Ho scelto il modello "Brick" perché l'ho trovato perfetto per gli outfit autunnali, con questi colori non troppo accesi. Nelle foto ho abbinato le scarpe con un outfit tutto giocato sul "Burgundy" e la mia nuova borsa, la tote "Too hot to handle" di Marc by Marc Jacobs, vi piace ? Io mi sono innamorata del colore e della morbidezza del pellame di questa borsa e posso già supporre che la porterò con me con molti outfit diversi !.

These pics were taken in lovely Bruneck, during my holidays on the mountains of South Tyrol. The air was fresh and chilly and I had to bring a few scarves and heavy jackets with me ! I was actually happy about it, I don't regret Summer's end...bring it on Autumn ! I also got myself a new pair of sunnies (well, they are another birthday present ;)), these ones from Dolce e Gabbana, they're a bit different from all the sunglasses I got - I tend to buy similar ones ! I am loving the burgundy color and also the new lipstick from Chanel - Rouge Coco n. 45 - Caractère. I usually don't wear dark lipsticks and this one was a true surprise, it's not too dark at all and it's very longlasting !.

Queste foto sono state scattate nella deliziosa Brunico, durante la mia appena trascorsa vacanza tra le montagne del Sud Tirolo ! L'aria era pulita e fresca e ho dovuto portare con me qualche sciarpa e la giacca pesante ! Ne sono stata felice, non rimpiango l'Estate...sono felice per l'arrivo dell'Autunno !. Ho anche un paio di occhiali da sole nuovi (beh, sono un altro regalo di compleanno ;)), sono di Dolce e Gabbana, un po' diversi dai soliti occhiali da sole che ho - ho la tendenza a comprarne sempre di simili !. Amo il "vinaccio" o burgundy e anche il nuovo rossetto di Chanel - Rouge Coco n. 45 - Caractère. Solitamente non amo portare rossetti scuri e questo è stata una vera sorpresa, non è affatto troppo scuro e dura parecchio sulle labbra !.

A not very comfortable strapless dress

black strapless dress

I am back from a few wonderful days spent on the mountains (South Tyrol) and before showing you the pics taken there, I wanna show you this outfit.
This Shi4 black strapless dress has been in my closet for quite a long time and when I decided to wear it for a clubbing night, I loved the outfit but in the middle of the night I realized it wasn't a very comfortable strapless dress !. I had difficulties at keeping it in place and this made me feel a bit like Donna Martin in 90210 when her outfits made it hard for her to move, if you see what I mean, LOL !. I must confess I lack of patience and when an outfit is really uncomfortable I tend to feel nervous...I must do something to adjust this dress because I don't know if I will dare wearing it again, even tho I like it a lot ! It's very low cut on the back and the studs on the front are a bit heavy so I suppose that is the problem !.


Sono rientrata da una meravigliosa vacanza trascorsa in montagna (Sud Tirolo) e prima di mostrarvi le foto scattate lì, voglio mostrarvi questo outfit.
Questo abitino nero senza spalline di Shi4 è stato nel mio armadio per diverso tempo prima che mi decidessi di indossarlo per una serata in discoteca, il risultato mi è piaciuto ma a metà serata ho capito che non si trattava affatto di un abito comodo !. Infatti, ho avuto serie difficoltà a farlo stare al suo posto e mi sono sentita un po' come Donna Martin di Beverly Hills 90210, quando i suoi outfit le rendevano impossibili i movimenti, se capite cosa intendo, LOL !. Devo confessarvi di non essere la persona più paziente del mondo e quando indosso qualcosa di scomodo tendo a diventare rapidamente nervosa...devo fare qualcosa per aggiustare questo abito oppure dubito che oserò indossarlo ancora, sebbene mi piaccia molto ! E' molto scollato sulla schiena e le borchie sul davanti sono pesanti, credo quello sia il problema !.

I matched the dress with my Miu Miu beauties that are also very comfortable and as a bag I picked an H&M clutch. Spiked necklace is from Asos. I think if I had picked shoes that hurt my feet I would have gone totally mad with the devilish combo "strapless dress that moves and shoes that kill my feet" ! ;-). Has it ever happened to you to regret wearing something because it ended up feeling umconfortable ?.

Ho abbinato l'abito alle mie bellezze di Miu Miu che sono anche molto comode e come borsa ho scelto una clutch di H&M. La collana è di Asos.
Credo che se avessi scelto anche scarpe poco pratiche sarei del tutto impazzita con la diabolica combinazione "abito senza spalline che si muove e scarpe che uccidono i piedi" ! ;-). Vi è mai capitato di pentirvi di un outfit scelto rivelatosi poi scomodo ?.

Satin fuchsia dress

fuchsia dress

Today is my birthday and I am spending it in an unusual way for me, in a tiny village on the mountains. I live by the sea and I wanted to change the landscape I see for a couple of days !.
I am a Virgo, do you believe in Zodiac signs or not ? I don't care much about horoscope, but I can say I do own a few features of my zodiac sign, and also of my Scorpio ascendant !.
Before posting a few pics taken here and introducing you to a new bag ;-), let me show you an outfit I wore a few days ago, I love the shade of fuchsia of this Dolce & Gabbana satin stretch dress, what do you think about it ?.


Oggi è il mio compleanno e lo sto trascorrendo in modo inusuale per me, in un piccolo villaggio tra i monti. Vivo sul mare e volevo cambiare il paesaggio per un paio di giorni !.
Sono del segno della Vergine, voi credete nei segni zodiacali o no ? Io non tanto nelle previsioni dell'oroscopo ma posso dire di avere qualche caratteristica del mio segno zodiacale e anche del mio ascendente in Scorpione !.
Prima di postare qualche foto scattata quì e presentarvi una nuova borsa ;-), volevo mostrarvi questo outfit di qualche giorno fa, amo la tonalità di fucsia di questo abito di Dolce&Gabbana in satin stretch, che ne pensate ?.

I was wearing my Loriblu heels and decided to spice up the outfit with a studded clutch from Zara and a spiked necklace I bought a while ago at Pull&Bear. I think Pull&Bear often comes out with lovely necklaces and bracelets and I keep an eye on their accessories counter !;-).

Ho indossato le mie scarpe col tacco di Loriblu e dato un tono più aggressivo all'outfit con una clutch borchiata presa da Zara e con una collana con le punte comprata tempo fa da Pull&Bear. Da Pull&Bear trovo spesso collane e bracciali molto carini, tengo sempre d'occhio il loro espositore ! ;-).

Here on the mountains I am trying to keep calm with shopping but it's really hard for a shopaholic like me, I have already bought a couple of things including a pair of Hunter boots...I decided to go for them after all the rain was pouring at home before I left to come here (where it's so sunny, thankfully !). Of course, I am an expert at finding new reasons to go shopping !.

In montagna sto cercando di tenermi lontana dallo shopping ma è davvero difficile per una shopaholic come me, infatto ho già acquistato un paio di cose, inclusi un paio di stivali Hunter...ho deciso di prenderli dopo tutta la pioggia che è caduta nei giorni precedenti la partenza (invece adesso c'è tanto sole, meno male !). Ovviamente, resto sempre un'esperta quando si tratta di trovare nuove scuse per fare shopping !.

Apricot dress, Miu Miu shoes

apricot lace dress, Miu Miu shoes

I was having an apricot moment the other day. This lace dress had been living in my closet for a while, then I realized I had a nice apricot shade on my nails - Essie's "Tart Deco" - that reminded me of something I had bought, and this dress from Lunatic came to my mind !. This is not the first lace dress from this brand in my closet ;-).

Ho avuto un momento "albicocca" l'altro giorno. Questo abito con inserto in pizzo giaceva nel mio armadio da tempo, poi ho guardato le mie unghie, di una bella tonalità albicocca - "Tart Deco" di Essie, e mi sono ricordata di questo abito di Lunatic !. Questo non è il primo abitino in pizzo di questo brand nel mio armadio ;-).

I spiced the dress with a Fornarina belt to evidence my waist line and added my Miu Miu open toe studded pumps. The bag is Chanel inspired and it's from Secret Pon Pon, a brand that makes very cute bags, I visited their show room and it's really a very nice place !. The lipstick is one of my great lipstick loves, Vegas Volt from MAC...never without it in my beauty case ! It's vitaminic and velvety...like an apricot ! ;).

Ho aggiunto grinta all'abito con una cinta di Fornarina per evidenziare il punto vita e calzato pumps spuntate con borchie di Miu Miu. La borsa è di ispirazione Chanel ed è di Secret Pon Pon, un brand che fa delle borse davvero carine, ho visitato il loro show room ed è un posto incantato !.
Il rossetto è uno dei miei must have in fatto di trucco, Vegas Volt di MAC...mai senza nel mio beauty case ! E' un colore vitaminico e vellutato...come un'albicocca !.

I absolutely love these Miu Miu open toe shoes, they look good under a dress and also with jeans ! It's one of the purchases I am more proud of in the latest period !.

Adoro queste scarpe spuntate di Miu Miu, danno un tocco speciale ad un abitino ma anche ai jeans ! E' uno degli ultimi acquisti di cui vado più fiera !.
