Dreams VS Real Economics

The pictures are from Valentino Haute Couture collection, a symbol of an intimate luxury, 
reminding of an aristocrat woman of Russian origins, who wears light but hyper-precious dresses
with romantic and flattering shapes.
 Couture is a privilege for few people and we all can only dream of it, but to be honest, in these times of financial and economics crisis, I relate in particular to the public debt crisis that is involving Italy (but also Usa) and the consequent always growing fiscal pressure, the fall of the stock exchange indexes (FTSE mib in Italy) and the high levels of volatility, the growing spread of Italian government bond yields compared to German's ones, judged to be in decline, the negative opinions of American rating agencies on Italian markets and the speculative attacks, and more concretely,
a problem that concerns the whole Euro zone,
the widespread unemployment from which only Germany seems to be safe,
Greece and Portugal seem to be closer and so on...
I don't want to bore you...I feel that there's very little space to dream.
 (you know I have sometimes a critical approach to fashion, though knowing that fashion is besides a big game, an industry with many employees)
Do you have some considerations about it?
I think young people must have "broad shoulders" for the future.

The coolest of the moment: SUPER

Summer Set 1


This set contains my latest obsessions:
My favourite shopping bag at Prada's, the colour matches with anything and it's very handy. I'm appreciating the ease of a bag more than the shape and I have a thing about shoulder strap.
The mini by Missoni (I'm looking for that), very sexy, so also during the day we add a  bit of colours in a black-oufit, it would be perfect also with a white shirt to wear knotted in the waist.
Something sheer like that shirt.
And a pair of simple black sandals but without a stiletto heel.
