Well, finally here the answer: some small boutiques have decided to buy some clothes of my S/S 2011 collection, so now I have a big order to deliver middle of May! WOW, I'm so happy. Then, second news: next week I will open my second Etsy'store, but this time entirely dedicated to Italian vintage clothing and accessories. These are some shots taken this morning, of course the photo shoot is handmade, I mean just me and my super Canon, what do you think?

I Got Lost

Maybe it is my current fascination with Arthurian legends that draws me to this editorial, but the hazy softness of it reminds me of  a time long lost.  It is whimsically romantic with well crafted lines. I always like editorials that give me shots outside of medium-distanced shots of the model in some setting.  I like that Paul de Luna decides to focus on details along with full-length shots. Enjoy it!!!

Vintage Details And Leather Jacket

It is not a novelty that our wardrobe is built around key style pieces that can always offer us the chance to look voguish and confident. In this case, I am talking about my biker leather jacket! These are the ingredients for my casual chic urban outfit: yellow off shoulder kimono top, destroyed jeans, vintage accessories, suede pumps and of course my beloved leather jacket.
Leather is one of the most prominent material used in A-list collections from the runway.Therefore it is highly recommended to keep our stylish leather jacket at hand when it comes of comfy and chic cover-ups ;)!

Why Do We Feel Better On Sunny Days?

For me, the difference between how I feel on a sunny day versus a cloudy day can be quite dramatic. But it makes the most difference if I'm actually out in the sunshine, not just seeing it through a window. I seem to have a better sense of well-being and more energy. Are there any good scientific reasons for this or is it just an emotional reaction?
Yes.....Exposure to sunlight causes a glandular release of the "feel good" hormone Serotonin.So when the sun is beaming, your body gets more energy making it easier to feel good. This is not to say that you cannot feel as good on a cloudy day, but in this case you need to draw on energy from other sources to compensate for the reduced portion of energy from the sun.
What do you think? Does that make sense?

Language Of Flowers: Happy Easter!!!

What do you feel when someone gives you flowers? Will your reaction vary based on what kind of flower you received? Is color also a determining factor of what the real implication is? We normally associate what we feel based on flowers. For us, a rose may express a strong feeling of passion, a carnation could tell someone how thankful he is for being your friend or a yellow tulip may indicate that someone is hopelessly in love.
There are so many flower meanings and we could even give a special meaning of our own but what matters most is the effort and compassion that is enveloped in each flower that you give. The real meaning will still be up to the person giving it and the person receiving the gift. So be sure that when you give a flower, communicate the right words that you want to say! This is my way to wish all of you Happy Easter and a lovely weekend!!!

Blue And Cream, Just A Simple Look

Hi beauties, today I have an important meeting for a new cooperation as independent designer, and I must confess I am a little bit nervous…Anyway for the occasion, I decided to wear a simple and romantic outfit. I really love my blue leather jacket, so I've searched for the right blouse to pair with it. I thought to combine basic colors as blue and cream, very simple but classy. The chic detail are my new lace socks, so romantic…Happy Friday!!!

What Is The Meaning Of Beautiful ?

I'm sure you've heard: Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Beautiful can mean different things to different people. To me, being beautiful, is a state of conscious mind and peaceful soul. Beautiful is something or someone that is perfect to you. It makes you believe that there is nothing better for you, it is the best you could ever have.
Beauty and perfection are subjective... they both mean different things to different people. So whatever makes you happy, and whatever seems perfect to you, is your definition of beautiful.In short, beauty can be intense or subtle and it could be anything that you find intensely appealing/charming. Beauty comes from inside!
