fashion inspiration

This.

Because I’m on vacation. And because love. Everyday. If only vacation would be everyday and making out in cars would be like cheek (not chick) kissing.

How beautiful are these two? Very. It’s all in the fire. To be read “smiles“. To be read “love“. And when it’s love one doesn’t need any trick to look somewhat. Or let’s say that that somewhat looks a trillion (gillion, catrillion) times better and a pop up comes out and spells “awesome“.

And we want awesome!

Rule: a simple, flowery, strappy summer dress, happy hair don’t care, a pair of boots (perfect outfit for late summer days, btw, ok add a loose fit jeans jacket), a hand in his hair and you’re done. No, not done.

Kiss. Now you’re done and ready to rrrrrumble. Through the day.

PS: he is not bad either. He’s in fashion! It’s the love. And the t-shirt. And the hands. Or the smiles?

Do smth to turn your Monday into Funday

It’s Monday and it doesn’t have to be one of those “Oh God bla”. It’s just another day in paradise and this is just a title of a song, hardly the reality. Or who knows? Maybe this is the paradise. You see? Thoughts like these come along on Mondays.

When I dress on Monday morning, it’s either greys-and-blacks-and-I-am-living-by-myself-on-another-planet or I-am-so-having-fun-today. Believe it or not, clothes do do the trick, regardless of you being into fashion or not. It’s like lipstick. Once you put it on, you know you are on. And this is how a new post is born.

Now! Imagine you wearing the below today. You simply can not wear this top with these pants and be grumpy. You will, at least, be smiling on the inside.

Yooou.

Is this too much for you? I feel you. But not as in “Too much things at once”, but as in “I would just mix them differently”. If so, see below. If not, do it how you feel it (if you feel it) as long as it feels like you. You know, you?

So, you are looking below. Ow ow!

Keep the lipstick, the top, the pants and the bag and wear these for daytime:

And theeeese for the party, if any (lucky you!).

Julia Is Running to A Party!

ozinparis-juliasarrjamois

Julia always seems to have a party on her own. On herself. Yes, on. By herself or with anyone else, it really doesn’t matter. She’s all about the “whateva’, man, whateva'” or this is, at least, the mood she is trying to induce. Or whateva’. The clothes on her, on the other hand, are dancing all the time.

Fun, fun, fun.

Just the right amount of vodka in her cranberry juice, the perfect music, the coolest crowd, the awesome mood, the hands in the air, your crush there. This is the perfect party Julia is always setting for her clothes. Lucky clothes. No. Lucky Julia.

The way she mixes the colours, the prints, the cuts, the textures, the fabrics, the accessories (or the absence of them), the heels, the no-heels on her body is the way that very few would succeed in doing. Yes, the colour of her skin and the hair are the pepper and the salt in the equation.

Damn, I gotta get a tan. Fast! #firstworldwarproblems

When really wanting to wear a crazy skirt (and by crazy I mean a colour like that or a print like… Crazy!), pair it with the simplest t-shirt in the right hue and the simplest heels or sneakers. Or go wild and pair with whatever the level of craziness you feel like reaching today. Just don’t forget your smile (or better yet, laugh) and your attitude. Ever.

Hey, Julia, say cheese! Or pizza! Or give me your clothes and I will smile like there is no tomorrow. Or the day after tomorrow. And so on.

Hey, it’s Saturday!

Viviana Volpicella Is So Good!

 

Another day, another fashionista, another Italian. You know what I mean? I bet you don’t. Or you do? Naughty you! When in search for “What to wear tomorrow?” I always turn to my Instagram folder. The images saved there do the talking when turning my closet up side down. Talking, walking, dressing, eating. Pizza?

You cannot think of Italia and not think of pizza, right? Right.

Right, but this is about fashion. And Viviana Volpicella. Ai caramba! That’s Spanish. Ciao bella! Italian!

First, it’s about the smile. This Italian smile which goes with everything. On her with, literally, everything. She just has to smile and you’d think everything on her happens to be so right. She could pull off anything from bold mixed prints to neon to all white to bold mixed prints back again! To everything! Like the ingredients on parmigiana. Or pasta. Or pizza. Nope. Everything won’t do on pizza, too.

And how she carries a short skirt. A short, short skirt. You go, bella!

Watching that much “Italia” makes me want to go to Italy. Still, I think Greece will be it. Vacay destinatay. Tzatziki, souvlaki… Am I hungry or smth?

Giovanna Battaglia Rules.

 

When it comes to having fun while dressing up and enjoying the style you made up for yourself just like for a role you’re going to play in, Giovanna Battaglia is the answer.

The way she gives a twist to the latest trends and mixes pieces in the most unique, yet clean way is always fresh, interesting to observe, inspirational and most important, fun! I would say “When in doubt, do the Battaglia way!”. But! Since the attitude is the key, you’d better feel it when you do it. Otherwise, the role is not yours to have on the stage.
