December 1st is our national day, but more importantly it’s a day off from work, free to celebrate or simply reconnect with our dear ones. This year, it fell on a Thursday. Many struck a deal with the boss and got Friday off too, so they could enjoy a mini-holiday. I didn’t; in fact, my […]

There are few designers in this world who still put as much effort and emotion in their promotional campaigns as in the actual collections. Too many rely on beautiful women, clothes and glamorous or dramatic accessories. Chanel (because Karl Lagerfeld), Alexander McQueen and Kenzo still manage to surprise and excite with their campaigns, telling stories […]

A couple of years ago, I was asked to define my style in a class. I remember using the words masculine, urban, eclectic. I hadn’t succeeded in comprising my outfit choices in just one word and now, I understand why. Almost unconsciously, I try on things so different from one another that you couldn’t label […]

{Dorothy Perkins blouse, D&G skirt, Louboutin V Neck pumps, Lulu Townsend clutch, BCBGMAXAZRIA headband} Days are flying by and there’s almost no time to buy presents, make a reservation for New Year’s Eve and change outfits between Christmas parties.

It’s hard to explain why you have the same affinity for feminine pieces as you have for masculine items and why should you have to? Style isn’t a mathematic equation. Miu […]

I can’t believe it’s 11.11. No, not the mystical numbers on the digital clock, but November 11. When did these months go by? Soon, it will be Christmas, then New Year’s Eve, then we’ll find ourselves in 2017 with 12 new months of surprises and challenges. It’s kinda scary and overwhelming when you think about it […]

I remember when a friend of mine told me she’d rather starve than go alone at a restaurant to grab lunch. I wasn’t surprised – I couldn’t imagine going to the movies by myself. Somehow, hanging out with yourself was more filled with anxiety than learning to walk. In a way, I felt like I was […]

I was about to give up on the chance of seeing California. I had to choose between a summer vacation in Sardinia and a fall trip to US. Since I couldn’t survive one minute longer in the city heat, I chose my beach vacation in the blink of an eye. Yes, getting to US would […]

It’s October 29 and you know what that means: Halloween! If there’s something I love, that is themed parties. I usually go all the way – dress up accordingly, check out costume references… but this year, I’m so lazy I can’t pull myself off the sofa for any elaborate outing. Instead, I’m bringing Halloween home […]
