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.
At Iceberg, Paolo Gerani brought to the catwalk double breasted coats and blazers, leather pants, furs and a touch of electric blue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Afterwards I had a quick lunch break with Grazia Team at Cafe Verger (I love this place http://verger.it/ )
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 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?”

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.
Lime... fresh and full of spirit, it brightens up the room like a burst of citrus and brings with it a sense of anticipation of all the possibilities the world offers. It opens us up to perception and inspires us to try new things by initiating change.

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.

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