Shoes: Olivia Palermo for Aquazzura


Olivia Palermo's shoe collection for the italian brand Aquazzura is finally out. This collection is meant to present a shoe for every occasion creating a sort of a "survival pack", Olivia style. She is known for being a style icon and being spotted with some of the most iconic shoes so, a line designed by her could only bring beautiful pieces. Olivia choose Aquazzura because, according to her, she really identifies herself with the brand's aesthetics and also, she's good friends with the Aquazzura's designers.

A colecção de sapatos da Olivia Palermo para a marca italiana Aquazurra foi finalmente apresentada. A colecção apresenta um par de sapatos para cada ocasião criando assim uma espécie de "conjunto de sobrevivência" ao estilo de Olivia. Ela é conhecida por ser um ícone de estilo e por ser vista com alguns dos mais icónicos pares de sapatos, por isso, uma linha de sapatos desenhada por ela só poderia trazer peças maravilhosas. Olivia escolheu a Aquazzura porque, segundo ela própria, identifica-se com a estética da marca e, também é amiga dos designers da mesma.

My Holiday Outfits

Earlier this month, I went on vacation to Porto Santo, a portuguese paradise island, with one of my best friends. We went for a 6 day trip and all we did was relax, spend all day on the beach, taste delicious drinks and walk through the town at night absorbing all the fun stuff that was going on. Check out some of the looks I wore.

El Dorado

This summer has been all about living like royalty by adding gold to my habitual b&w outfits. I think I'm succeeding at the job of giving more excitement to my wardrobe. After all, I've been learning that life is not supposed to be lived (only) in shades of grey .

Brands: Cutler and Gross

Founded in the golden year of 69' by Graham Cutler and Tony Gross in London, Cutler and Gross is an optical brand that stands for handmade luxury combined with great design. Later, in 82' Marie Wilkinson joined the duo as the design director of the company. Personally, being me an individual who needs to wear glasses on a daily basis, I can definitely identify myself  with Tony Gross's statement: "It's nice if glasses can be sexy and mysterious. People who need glasses don't have to feel separated from glamour.". Seeing pictures of their S/S 14 lookbook, I truly understood what Gross meant.

About Street Style

Earlier today, I was seeing street style pictures of Paris Fashion week in style.com and I thought how ridiculous some people get dressed to attend such event. I always saw fashion weeks as an opportunity to show the true meaning of sense of style in a matter of elegance, sophistication and timelessness, not a Carnival of colors, weird shapes and bad looking trends that will never work. What some people don't get is, not everybody can be an Anna Dello Russo, because she's one of a kind and she does her thing like nobody else can do it. I don't see interest in seeing other people doing Anna's thing. People who purposely exaggerate their outfits in order to look the opposite of what they really look like in a daily basis is, in my humble opinion, stupid. I feel like there is always people who try to look like "couture" wearing fast fashion store items, it simply doesn't work for me and it shouldn't work for anybody else. Simple is better, unless we're talking about wine.

Now onto the good stuff, some looks captured by Tommy Ton were beautifully amazing and those ones are worth seeing and being kept to future reference and inspiration, they are
