The tourist

Hi dear,
After the first days of laziness what do you do in the freezing nights of these winter holidays? How are you spending these days :)?
Last night I went to cinema to watch The tourist, the movie with Angelina Jolie and Johnny Deep shot in Venezia, I was impressed by the set (I look forward to go to the wonderful Venezia and get lost among its calle :D) and by Angelina Jolie's dresses designed for the occasion by Ferragamo. The dresses and the suits she wears are glamorous and chic, timeless and very refined classics like in Ferragamo's tradition, love this style, have in mind to buy a pair of black long gloves like her one :).


By the way of Angelina Jolie's personal style I have to say she is always perfect. No eccentricity, she usually prefers feminine dresses with simple but sexy shapes, only one colour (white, black and pale pink) matched with black or neutral colours shoes. Sometimes only one statement jewel, I still remember the emerald drop earrings she wore in a red carpet, fabulous! She doesn't need much to be beautiful like a real diva. Great example of elegance, less is more is always a truth.

Happy Holidays

Hello guys,
hope you spent a super merry Christmas, did you find under the tree what you wished?

This year I have had a lot in material gifts but actually what I would like to receive is a year of peace, happiness and love for me and my family. This would be the biggest present I wish, I don't ask anymore. No clothes, no shoes or other things can replace the smiles, the happiness you have when you are surronded by beloved people. Ever like this year I have understood this thing.

Hence, the best gift I wish to you is that you will have a wondeful new year, full of good immaterial things.

All the best,
Diane

ASK-ASK-ASK!

Frida on my mind

Dear readers,
I imagine in these days you are involved in Christmas shopping to find the last gifts for your friends and family, I saved you from giving a list of possible gifts because I think a present has to be very personal, talk about the person who will receive it and be chosen observing his tastes with a bit of care. Only a recomendation, let's try to limit our consumerism and think that sometimes the time is still the most precious gift.

Christmas is the time in which you come back home, the family gets together, you have more time to spend with old friends. For me it's also the time in which I can be lazy without feeling too guilty :), watch movies, go to cinema, read books, my copy of Vogue Italia, newspaper, yes not only online (I'm also a fan of paper), stay at bed and make simple things I don't have time to do before...like having a decent breakfast, going to hairdresser :) (oh, I made a long fringe in these days)!
How are you spending the spare time in these days before the big holidays? Is full time shopping killing you? In these days I'm reading a Frida Kahlo monograph by Taschen I bought recently to increase my collection, I'll talk about her soon.
And soon there will be a guest post on a smart and talented illustrator :-) whose drawings I love. So stay tuned!


Cari lettori,
immagino che in questi giorni siate presi dallo shopping di Natale per trovare gli ultimi regali da fare per i vostri amici e per la famiglia. Vi ho risparmiato una lista di possibili doni perchè penso che un regalo debba essere personale, parlare della persona che lo riceverà, essere scelto osservando i suoi gusti con un pò di attenzione. Una sola raccomandazione, cerchiamo di limitare il nostro consumismo e pensiamo che qualche volta il tempo è ancora il regalo più prezioso. 

Il Natale è il momento in cui si torna a casa, la famiglia si riunisce, si ha più tempo da passare con i vecchi amici. Per me è anche il tempo in cui si può essere pigri senza sentirsi troppo colpevoli :) guardare film, leggere libri, la mia copia di Vogue Italia, il giornale cartaceo, si, non solo online (sono anche una fan della carta), stare a letto e fare piccole cose semplici che non trovo il tempo di fare prima...come fare una colazione decente, andare dal parrucchiere :) (oh, ho fatto la frangia lunga in questi giorni)!
Come state passando il tempo libero in questi giorni prima delle grosse vacanze? Lo shopping a tempo pieno vi sta uccidendo? In questi giorni sto leggendo una monografia di Frida Kahlo di Taschen che ho comprato di recente per accrescere la mia collezione, vi parlerò a breve di lei.
E a breve ci sarà un guest post su un'illustratrice intelligente e di talento :-) di cui amo i disegni. Stay tuned!

I DIE for Miu Miu


Have you seen the Miu Miu 2011 Spring Summer Collection yet? The flashes of electric colours, yellow, blue, red, shocking pink in the dresses and in the accessories have captured me totally. The mary jane are super cute, what about having a shocking pair of shoes for next season? :) Miuccia Prada rocks always.
I know that it's very cold to think about spring summer but keep in mind the imperative of the next season: abandon the light colours and switch to psychedelic!

Pics from Milan

Hello Beauties,
the past week was really full of things to do...I went out, met some friends and did shopping in the city.
In the next post I'll show you what I bought and the giveaway for you!:D
In the meanwhile enjoy some pics from Milan on December, It was very cold with few sunny days and some days of snow and rains (I also went around by motorcycle to skip the traffic of the city in the morning, you can imagine how cold it was, I wonder how come I has not become sick yet :) ). If you have not visited Milan yet, come in but preferably in the good weather!
