Love from Florence

Been away for the week end doing wedding stuff so my jeans and Converse have been the perfect companions for running around from one caterer, florist and another. Here's a little pic of the beautiful view of my home town.

Luggage crush

You know that I love a bit of jet-set stylish traveling and my latest obsession is the Jimmy Choo new 24/7 travel range of bags and trolleys. They have come up with the ultimate assortment of beautiful- and practical- bags and luggage  collection comprising slouchy weekenders, carry-on trollies and lots of small leather goods like passport and Iphone covers, laptop cases, travel wallets and luggage tags. They are all come in multiple sizes and a variety of finishes. My bag today is the Rhys but what I really want is the leopard print trolly !
LOVE them all

My bag rests on top of my trolly- so clever.
Take a look here for their entire collection www.jimmychoo.com 
Off to Italy for the week end!

WIT Wedding Wednesday: 4 things you might have not known


A new website from the creators of Anthropology on all that's bridal. Fabulous dresses and accessories but also lot's of inspiration and great styling: I particularly love the hair and make up ideas.

White by Vera Wang range for  David's Bridal

A capsule collection by Vera Wang dresses at accessible prices. Available at David's Bridal throughout the US, this gorgeous range makes Vera Wang available to the real world!

The Vintage Wedding Company

A fabulous showroom in central London (I had my very first fitting here and loved everything from the atmosphere, selection of dresses to the very helpful and friendly staff) with a selection of vintage dresses gathered from all around the world.

Jason Wu exclusive collection for Net a Porter

Jason Wu is one of my favorite "occasion wear" designers, he is the man behind all those to-die-for red carpet creations we all love and I was so exciting to hear about his new bridal range.  Elegant, luxurious and utterly modern, this capsule collection is only available on net-a-porter and is truly fabulous.

LFW style challenge day FIVE: trench going to town ;-)

Last day of my LFW style challenge!

A trench is an ideal cover-up thrown over dresses and skirts and I often style it in shoots over black tie and party dresses for a modern, sophisticated look. The front split and knee length is just perfect to show a little bit of what's underneath and this is the look that I'm working today to show off my golden pleated skirt, topped off with a Jimmy Choo neon clutch and killer heels. I admit that a trench has not kept me as warm (or dry) as planned in this February weather, but nevertheless I have not tired of wearing it everyday and I expect this is why this wardrobe staple truly is a timeless classic.

LFW Style challenge - day THREE: pair it down

Today I am giving my feet a rest in my favorite Jimmy choo kitten heels and dressing down my 3rd trench look of the week with casual denim and grey sweatshirt- after all, it's Sunday.  The good old italian in me alwyas loves a bit of blig.. So after taking my pic I've decided to add my most favorite Florence outlets buy, my bejewwled Prada necklace that I would literally save from a fire. 

Here are some of my shoots with lots of trenches... I do love it.

LFW Style challenge - day TWO: belt it up

Another shows day, another smooth operation  dress-up time. If yesterday's trench-look was "pretty", today it is tough-er with leather leggings and killer heel ankle boots. Inspired by Burberry's SS collection, I am taking my Top Shop trench and belting it up with a bright turquoise American Apparel fabric belt. Warm and up-to-the-minute on trend I'm ready to face a busy day of shows. See you tomorrow for another take on this timeless classic.

LFW Style challenge - day ONE: trench+statement shoes

First day at London Fashion Week! 

Off to the shows! It's the first day of London Fashion week and my wardrobe planning has been as easy as ever. Wondering why? After a few days pondering over the "what-to-wear" dilemma, I've decided to make my life easier- for once. So I'm taking one great classic, the trench, and reinventing it each day with different clothes, shoes and accessories.  Today I am wearing my new Top Shop trench with leather sleeves and pairing it with lace Louboutin sling back heels: I'm calling this one "Classic trench with a twist and statement shoes"

Thank you FabSugar!
