Post image for Blogger Diary: A weekend to yourself

This weekend I was home alone, but it was kind of nice. I indulged in everything a girl loves indulging in; I was at one with my thoughts and drifted through the weekend like a light cloud. Read more »

On Thursday the 24th I started my day at the C’N’C show. I couldn’t stop backstage to say hi and congrats to my friend Umbe, who is a women’s designer, because I had to run to Iceberg.

Iceberg

At Iceberg, Paolo Gerani brought to the catwalk double breasted coats and blazers, leather pants, furs and a touch of electric blue.

Blumarine

At 4:30 pm it was time for Blumarine, which surprised everyone with silver accessories combined with metallic, iridescent, and hologram pieces. The soundtrack by Azealia Banks and Mia gave the show an extra edge.

Bizarre Colorquake Flamboyant Personalities Allure by Mauro Grifoni

Next I attended a cocktail exhibition at the Mauro Grifoni store in Via Della Spiga: “Bizarre, Colorquake, Flamboyant, Personalities, Allure”, a special preview of Diana Vreeland curated by Maria Luisa Frisa and Judith Clark.

Time with friends

Right after, we went to Corso Como 10 for the i-D and Alberto Guardiani Party, hosted by Marcelo Burlon. At one point, you simply have to eat, and that is exactly what we did… a relaxed dinner with friends: perfect conclusion to my day.

Mila Schon

Coliac belt for this amazing Mila Schon outfit

Friday the 25th began with Mila Schon at 11.30. My true compliments to Biancamaria Gervasio, the young designer behind the brand. I fell in love with every single piece of the collection.

peppermint tea after lunch @ Verger

Afterwards I had a quick lunch break with Grazia Team at Cafe Verger (I love this place  http://verger.it/ )

Jil Sander, last Raf Simon show for the brand

After lunch was the Jil Sander show – Raf Simon’s last show with the brand was just perfect. Simply, classy and elegant; I would love to have all the coats.

Ter Et Bantine

backstage @ Ter Et Bantine

Ter Et Bantine was the last of the day, at least for me. Casual and concise are the keywords for this refined brand who chose eccentric hats to personalize the silhouette.

I ended the day with dinner and a movie at home!

“It’s more interesting to have just a picture of a small detail – then you can dream all the rest around it. Because when you see the whole thing, what is there to imagine?

This is Maddie the coonhound, and not only is she a pretty pup, she must be incredibly patient and has some serious balancing skills. If you haven’t seen it before, behold, Maddie on Things! Read more »

Nice looking dog but the wrong colour. The official Coonhound designation belongs to the Bluetick Coonhound. A registered breed according the American Kennel Association. Look it up on the web.

DO: look the answer up in a book.

The other things you see along the way, when searching for answers in a book, are always fun. You can’t help but stop and peak in on other tid-bits as you look for your answer. The mind is hungry to learn and devour words from a page. There’s no stopping the hungry beast.

And why would you want to?

Soak it up.

Take in information from some other place than a computer screen. That’s not to say, that you should ignore the web of electronic knowledge that is available to you, but it is to say that you should supplement it by other means. Take in knowledge from all places. Oh the things you’ll learn from the scent of must and cigar lingering on the pages of some book high up on your shelf. As if the scent, itself, has something to teach you.

The scarf in the third picture down is so cute but I would never be able to get it to stay! YouTube hasn't really catered to my needs of Free People-style scarf tying...I would love a scarf wrapping tutorial!

Post image for Trend: Lace

Lace is a trend we still can’t get over. It had a strong presence last summer and this year it’s back after Valentino, Elie Saab and Miu Miu all brought innovation into the mix with over sized reworks, eyelet patterns, and the cool awkward cute look.

Valentino Spring/Summer collection 2012

If you’re like me, love lace and bought into this trend last year, but don’t like to wear head to toe pretty, here are a few tips on how to refresh your lacey numbers. Layer your lace with a bright color pop of Neon! A bright neon vest or swimsuit under a lacey dress to give it a little more energy and then finish it off with one statement bracelet

Items: Ethnic Lace Dress, Ruffle Monokini One Piece Swimsuit, Swedish Hasbeens, Brea Glided Bangle

lace

Mix your pretty pieces with some edge; vintage tee’s over lace skirts and shorts for that tomboy look

Items: Daisy Embroidered Mesh Short, Vintage Loves Vintage Tees, Luke Ankle Boot
