Today I wanted to share with you a bit of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, in my opinion (and I am not even Italian!) one of the most beautiful shopping arcades in the world! Continue reading
Today I decided to be a bit patriotic (France‘s national day is slowly approaching) and dedicate a post to one of our prouds: the Hermes scarf!
Not that I am an expert at all (am sure there are many more expert French girls out there – pls girls just show you and share your tips!), but I want to show you one of my favourite way to wear it… which is also an 1) easy and 2) realistic way to wear it. Continue reading
I now recovered from my weekend and hence want to tell you a bit more about the fashion shooting that the Italian Fashion Bloggers organised yesterday in a cool studio in Milan. Well, it was all good fun! There was tons of cool sponsors: first of all, Cosmopolitan, which if I understood correctly might put some of the pictures we took in their online magazine.. Continue reading
OK people… so I promised you to make effort to dress UP.. and tonight was the perfect night cause I was attending the Italian Fashion Bloggers Party at the Just Cavalli Cafe, here in Milan. Yes, the Just Cavalli Cafe is the night club (and restaurant) owned by Roberto Cavalli and, in true Cavalli spirit, it is full of animal prints, flamboyant glass crystal chandeliers and exotic flowers. Continue reading
I have only been living in Milan for just a bit less than a year now.. but if you want my opinion, I think that the reason why Milanese people dress up in super chic designer outfits so much is not only because they are all terribly rich.. but also because the city (and surroundings) seems to be full of factory outlet shops! Of course, with all the factories of these amazing fashion houses so close, they should be loads of great bargains to do! So in between two looks and travel adventures – and also because I know that some of you are going to come for the sales (wouou!!) and hence need good addresses! – I decided to now also take you for a little tour of the outlets I know. Continue reading
It’s crazy. I have been to ONE concert in Milan since I moved there (about a year ago now) and suddently I go to TWO concerts one just after the other.. you must think I am crazy! But nope, just pure chance..
So.. after Romeo & Juliette at the Scala (Milan’s Opera house) on Tuesday (see the post here), what could I wear for Bob Dylan‘s concert at the Alcatraz (famous concert place here in Milan.. not too big, which I love!) last night? Continue reading
Back from Istanbul to Milano, my boyfriend and I rushed to the Scala, Milan’s very famous opera house, to see Romeo & Juliette as it was one of the very last time they were playing this opera this season & I really wanted to see it.
For this occasion, I decided to wear the Hollywood jewellery Continue reading
I was walking through the lovely gardens of the Dolmabahce Palace in Istanbul the other day.. when I came accross the most surreal scene.. Continue reading
Here is a selection of pictures taken at the Topkapi Palace (the home and seat of goverment of the Sultans during the Ottoman Empire), the Blue Mosque (the symbol of the city of Istanbul, called like this beacause of the 20,000 marvelous pieces of glazed blue tiles decorating its interior), Continue reading
Yesterday I promised you to tell you about my hamman experience here in Istanbul.. how is it really? How does it work?
So I arrived on Monday in Istanbul and so far it is really cool. Continue reading
I am very excited cause tomorrow.. I am going to Istanbul for a whole week! I am going to visit one of my best friends who moved there almost a year ago now. So watch out for the live report on how-it-really-is-to-go-to-hammam over there (do you go fully naked?), how is Turkish fashion, the best addresses in town, the latest bargaining techniques at the bazar, how to smoke narghile the Turkish way, how do their crazy coffee tastes like & many more Turkish delights.. Cant’ wait!
Today I went with my girlfriends to a charity sale in Navigli. Navigli is sort of Milan’s dock area, i.e. the only area in Milan which still has canals (Milan was full of them in the past.. picture something a bit like Venice). Old washouses which are now artist studios or antique shops board the canals (bars and restaurants take over in the evening – more on this soon).. it is a bit the bohemian area of Milan. Continue reading
Today I want to start to show you a few things that I found during my trip in London. Continue reading
Camden has always been a place where I like to go when in London not only because one of my best friends lives there but also because of its alternative environment, all its colours & funky shops. Continue reading
