a body lotion and a body cream.

TAGGED. THE STYLE DETAIL.


One of the most anticipated shows in NY also brought with itself a new and effortless perspective to dress tailoring. No longer just a feminine item in one's wardrobe, the three-quarter-length with a thigh-high slit signed by Altuzarra is now a cult favorite. 
Easy to wear and make a statement with, this empowering piece is by far one of my top picks this season.

THE DREAM BUY

Victoria Beckham, Optical Kitten

In terms of style, no one does effortless sophistication better than Victoria Beckham.
And since this season she decided to focus on shape, I decided to focus today not on clothes but on something I've been wearing since the 10th grade. Glasses.
Her Optical Kittens are the ones I am craving for right now.

I am not a cyclist freak but in the most perfect world, for the most perfect Easter, I would want my bunny to make a quick stop at HERMES and get me the gray bicycle signed by the French house.

FROM THE BOOKSHELF


 If there is one book I really want to get my hands on this Easter holiday, it's Objects of Couture by Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Curi. Published by Rizzoli Editions, this special book is an homage 
payed to the legendary brand's accessories. 

TOM FORD X BEAUTIK


Ever wonder if there is anything Tom Ford can't do? That was the question/topic I had in mind when I was staring at the gorgeous Tom Ford display Beautik instaled in their Radu Beller shop not to long ago. 
 Like nothing else around, empowering as their creator, I consider these perfumes a statement of style. 
The packaging makes me think at a piece of jewelry, and each scent is divine and studied to the last detail. 

It is not a secret that Tom cared about cosmetics and makeup since he was a kid but, not everyone was convinced he had the voice for it. The entire range developed over the past few years follows his characteristic style and the success registered so far proves once again that he actually knows what women want and a little bit more. He knows it better than they do.
Perfumes are only a part of the designer's beauty line available now on his recently launched shop.

THE DREAM BUY

Zara, Leather sandals

Simple coincidence or not, today one of my tasks at the office was related to Zara... But so it happens that I also find perfection translated in a pair of leather sandals from the same brand. Classic and minimal at the same time, they are a versatile summer investment.

TAGGED. THE STYLE DETAIL.



The reign of fringes is not coming to an end. Valentino made sure that we are all going to remember and wear the trend once again. The difference now is that, to the ethnic feel, a more serious and elegant note was added: mythical characters. They came to complete the historical portrayed women from the runway and of course the distinctive personal identity of the label.

THE SHOPPING BUZZ

Chloe necklace Matches, Stella McCartney top, Lanvin bag, Giambattista Valli slipers, CMT Fine Watch And Jewelry Advisors, Stella McCartney shoes, Marc Jacobs skirt, Rodarte necklace, Chloe trousers, Miriam de Mello, Miragem on Pinterest

There are 23 degrees outside and my mind is set on pastels, nudes and white. Yes, I am playing by the book and therefore a touch of black and gold is required in order to maintain the balance, but what a treat... Keeping my fingers crossed for this weekend!

INSTA WEEK

365 on Instagram

I know I've been skiping on Instagram but a crazy schedule at the office is a good and viable excuse.
So here is my "week" on Instagram.

THE DREAM BUY

Chloe, Babeth bracelet

I do have some obsessions this season regarding accessories and somehow, I realize I tend to always go back to Chloe's products. Is like a love-affair. I have to admit it. But since the label takes multi-tasking sophistication very seriously, I simply can't say no to that.
