New in: stylish swarovski crystal case

crystal iPhone case, DS Styles, Fashion and Cookies

I have already told you about my love for mobile phone cases, especially for cute ones, in a dedicated post. Today I want to show you a new, sparkly add to my iPhone cases collection !.
I got sent this lovely personalized bling crystal phone case from DS Styles. This webshop offers an amazing wide range of phone and iPad cases and the thing that caught my attention was that they make wonderful mobile phone and iPad cases encrusted with Swarovski crystals, even customised with your initial or your own name !.
I wanted mine with my initial, and here it is, with a "V" ! It has a touch of pink that I really like and a sparkly silver background, it goes perfectly on my white iPhone 4S and it came with a beautiful box, a velvet pouch, a certificate of authenticity and even a tiny bag with a few crystals that can replace the eventually missing ones.


Vi avevo già parlato del mio amore per le cover per cellulari, specialmente per quelle particolari, in un post dedicato. Oggi voglio mostrarvi una nuova, luccicante aggiunta alla mia collezione di cover per il mio iPhone !.
Ho ricevuto questo adorabile case personalizzato e ricoperto di cristalli da DS Styles. Questo webshop offre una incredibile varietà di cover per telefoni e per iPad e lavora molto con veri cristalli Swarovski, personalizzando i case, volendo, con iniziali o con il vostro nome !.
Io volevo tanto un case con la mia iniziale, ed eccolo, con una "V" ! Ha un tocco di rosa che non guasta mai e il fondo argento, abbinandosi perfettamente con il mio iPhone 4S bianco. E' arrivato perfettamente imballato con una bella scatola, una custodia in velluto, un certificato di autenticità dei cristalli adoperati e persino una bustina contenente dei mini cristalli di ricambio !.

I love the perfect fit, the fact it's really very sparkly and that this crystal encrusted case looks so luxurious unlike many other encrusted cases I saw, add to this that shipment was quick and perfect, result is that I think I will soon place an order for an iPad cover !. I suggest you to visit DS Styles and please, notice that DSstyles is holding a monthly Swarovski case giveaway in DSstyles official page !.

Mi piace per la perfetta aderenza al telefono, per il fatto che i cristalli sono veramente luminosissimi e perché il case "tempestato" ha un aspetto veramente lussuoso rispetto ad altri che ho visto in giro, inoltre la spedizione è stata veloce...penso proprio che presto ordinerò una custodia per il mio iPad !. Vi suggerisco di visitare il sito DS Styles, tra l'altro, anche perché hanno un giveaway per poter vincere una cover con Swarovski ogni mese !.

Green faux fur coat and striped beanie

fake fur coat, Fashion and Cookies

Fake fur vests and jackets are so trendy, this year, we've seen them on so many bloggers, celebrities and in fashion magazines. When I ordered my fake fur from Chicnova, I was aware mine would be very colorful and therefore a bit crazy. Here it is, my outfit wearing my new faux fur coat with knitted sleeves, shaped as a cardigan !.
I decided to give it a rock vibe, wearing it with studded biker boots, skinny pants and a green striped beanie. My hubby said I looked like a green cute parrot, LOL.


I gilet e le giacche in ecopelliccia sono molto di moda, quest'anno, ne abbiamo visti tanti indosso ad altre bloggers, a celebrità e nei giornali di moda. Quando ho ordinato la mia pelliccetta finta su Chicnova, sapevo che sarebbe stata un po' eccentrica, dato il colore.
Ecco, dunque, il mio outfit con la nuova giacca in ecopelliccia con maniche in lana, che sembra più un cardigan dal design !. Ho deciso di dare al capo "peloso" un vibe rock, indossandolo con biker boots borchiati, pantaloni skinny e un cappellino a righe nei toni del verde. Mio marito ha scherzato dicendo che gli ricordavo un pappagallino verde...per tutta risposta ho minacciato di andare a votare insieme a lui vestita così ! :)

I decided to wear my Sodini necklace from last summer, I thought it would look good with this outfit cause it has the same color of the fake fur jacket !. What do you think about faux furs ?. Would you wear a faux fur coat that looks almost identical to real fur or would you rather go for some crazy color, instead ?. My answer for now is easy...I own a leopard print fake fur jacket and now, this one...both are faux, with no doubt ;-).

Ho deciso di indossare nuovamente la mia collana Sodini della scorsa estate, pensando che potesse andare bene con questo outfit per via del colore, uguale a quello della giacca in ecopelliccia !. Cosa ne pensate dei capi in ecopelliccia ?. Indossereste una giacca "pelosa" che sembri una pelliccia vera o preferireste scegliere qualcosa di smaccatamente falso, magari dal colore un po' pazzo ?. La mia risposta - ad oggi - è facile: ho una giacca in ecopelliccia a stampa leopardata e ora questa...entrambe sono false senza ombra di dubbio ;-).

With all these green shades, I decided to opt for a black handbag - in this case, my Balenciaga Work tote. The Jucca striped beanie was also a problem solver...when we took these pics it was so windy, and without a hat my hair would have been all over my face ! ;-). I've been looking for a total black simple beanie, I am open to your suggestions !.

Con tutte queste sfumature di verde, ho deciso di restare sul colore nero per la borsa - la Balenciaga Work. Il cappellino rigato Jucca è stato, invece, anche ottimo come soluzione al problema vento...senza il cappello, anziché un pappagallino, sarei sembrata il Cugino It, con i capelli tutti davanti al viso !. A proposito, sto cercando un beanie tutto nero, se avete suggerimenti fatemi sapere !.

I am all excited about the Academy Awards Ceremony ! What about you ? Les Misérables is my fave movie among all the nominated movies, together with Tarantino's "Django Unchained". Unfortunately, most of the times my fave movies don't end up with the Oscar, LOL...but I do enjoy the red carpet and the ceremony. The latest movie I watched at the movies was "Gangster Squad"...I fell in love with the make up and the clothes of this movie, and went to buy another red lipstick and a new eyeliner...but this I will show you in another post !.

Sono curiosa di sapere come andrà la cerimonia degli Oscar ! Che mi dite di voi ? Les Misérables è il mio film preferito tra quelli "nominati", insieme a "Django Unchained" di Quentin Tarantino. Sfortunatamente, spesso le mie aspettative circa i vincitori vengono deluse, LOL...ma mi piace molto guardare il red carpet e la cerimonia. L'ultimo film visto al cinema è stato "Gangster Squad", questo sabato...mi sono innamorata del trucco e degli abiti di questo film, e sono corsa a comprarmi l'ennesimo rossetto rosso e un nuovo eyeliner...ma di questo ne parlerò in un altro post !.

Marc by Marc Jacobs olive green dress

Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, Marc by Marc Jacobs too hot to handle tote
How are you doing ? It's been a very busy week for me and I am just so happy we're almost at the weekend ! It's time for a new outfit post, featuring a Marc by Marc Jacobs olive green wool dress that I bought some time ago. I love the design of the collar, of the shoulders, and the shirt cut and the olive green color !.
You can also see my crazy fold over Asos boots again, I love them more and more also because they are different, because buying them has been a matter of impulse and an act of courage, because they are the kind of shoes you either love or hate.


Come state ? Questa è stata una settimana molto impegnativa per me, fino ad ora, e sono felice che siamo arrivati quasi al fine settimana ! E' tempo di un nuovo post outfit, con un abito in lana di Marc by Marc Jacobs comprato un po' di tempo fa. Mi piacciono molto il taglio del collo, delle spalle e il taglio "a camicia" di questo abitino e il suo colore verde oliva !.
Potete, inoltre, rivedere i miei pazzi stivali di Asos, stivali che amo sempre più proprio perché sono diversi dal solito, perché comprarli è stata una scelta coraggiosa, in quanto sono il tipo di calzature che si amano o si odiano, senza vie di mezzo !.

I decided to go for olive green opaque tights that also helped me to keep warm, and went for a light woolen top under the dress. I matched my burgundy "Too hot to handle" Marc by Marc Jacobs tote and a burgundy chain necklace from Byba bijoux. I like the result because the colors look good together.
I think this dress would look good with a pair of flats (not my usual style, but they would look nice), with stiletto pumps (gotta try it), with biker boots or even UGGs. What kind of shoes would you choose ?.


Ho deciso di optare per calze coprenti dello stesso colore dell'abito, verde oliva, che mi hanno anche aiutata a mantenermi al caldo, e ho indossato un top in lana leggero sotto all'abito. Ho abbinato la tote bordeaux "Too hot to handle" di Marc by Marc Jacobs ed una collana a catena sempre in bordeaux di Byba bijoux. Mi piace il risultato ottenuto per via dell'insieme dei colori. Questo abito starebbe bene anche con con un paio di ballerine (non il mio stile, ma ci starebbero bene), con un paio di pumps dal tacco a spillo (da provare), con biker boots, con gli UGG. Voi con cosa lo abbinereste ?.

The highlights of my day was going to the movies to watch "Anna Karenina". I loved that movie, Keira Knightley was amazing in it and the director did a very good job. I love going to the movies so much, it relaxes me a lot. I prefer watching tv series at home, but when it comes to movies I love going out to the movies. What about you ?.

Il momento migliore della mia giornata è stato andarmene al cinema a vedere "Anna Karenina". Mi è piaciuto molto, Keira Knightley è stata bravissima e il regista ha fatto un ottimo lavoro. Mi piace molto andare al cinema, mi rilassa. Preferisco stare a casa a guardare le serie tv, ma quando si tratta di film mi piace "gustarmeli" davanti al grande schermo del cinema. Che mi dite di voi ?.

Front pockets dress

wool dress, Fashion and Cookies, Balenciaga bag

A cute dress is the easiest way to dress up...no skirt and shirt to match, just a bunch of accessories and we're ready to go out !...This knitted 60s style dress I had the luck to find in a boutique has front pockets, a turtleneck and a pop of one of my fave colors: purple !. The brand is called "handmade".

Un bell'abitino è un modo facile e veloce di vestirsi...nessuna gonna e camicia da abbinare, basta qualche accessorio giusto e siamo pronte ad uscire !...Questo abito in pura lana anni '60 che ho avuto la fortuna di trovare in una boutique ha due tasche frontali, collo alto e unisce al nero un tocco di un colore che amo: il viola !. Il brand si chiama "handmade".

I matched the dress with my Gaia d'Este suede and leather boots you had already seen and just to add some more color, I opted for my blue cobalt Balenciaga City bag. I love this bag so much and soon or later I'd love to give it a "sister"...maybe in coral pink ! ;-).

Ho abbinato all'abito i miei stivali in camoscio e pelle di Gaia d'Este che vi avevo già mostrato e, proprio per aggiungere un altro tocco di colore, ho optato per la Balenciaga City in blu cobalto, alla quale prima o poi vorrei dare una "sorellina"...magari in rosa corallo ! ;-).

I have a Lancome lipstick that is as purple as this dress, so I had the chance to wear it. It's a simple outfit and I do not have much to add, but sometimes leaving it simple is truly the best thing (not all the time, sometimes I love to exceed !).
Speaking about simple things, I (finally) worked a bit on the layout of this blog and now it loads faster and finally, the most important thing, threaded comments DO work, this means I can easily reply to your questions directly on the blog ! I was so annoyed that with my custom made layout threaded comments didn't work, they are important to communicate with you !.


Ho un rossetto di Lancome dello stesso viola, per cui ho pensato di metterlo con questo abito. E' un outfit semplice e non ho molto da aggiungere, ma a volte la semplicità è la miglior cosa - per me non sempre, in quanto mi piacciono anche look più "complicati" ;-).
A proposito di semplicità, finalmente ho lavorato un po' sul layout del blog e ora si carica più rapidamente e, inoltre, la cosa più importante, le risposte dirette sotto ogni commento funzionano, il che significa che posso facilmente rispondere alle vostre domande direttamente sul blog ! Ero così frustrata perché il mio precedente layout non consentiva una cosa tanto semplice ma essenziale per comunicare meglio con voi !.
