Do you know the tale from Oscar Wilde "the Nightingale and the Rose"? If you don't, my suggestion is to read it. It's one of the most poetic, heart-breaking and elevating tale ever. I read it yesterday for the fifth time I guess. " So the Nightingale pressed closer against the thorn, and louder and louder grew her song, for she sang of the birth of passion in the soul of a man and a maid"
When I saw these earings I couldn't avoid thinking about that nightingale and her heart...
We should go back to our grandmothers' forgotten customs such as sitting by the fireplace during winter nights knitting. It's one of those things I would like to learn. But times have changed so: let's knit but let's make something fashion, and let's be trained by a design master. I love the knit kit from Kenzo!
With this kit it's possible to make or a scarf or a waistcoat, it's up to your skill, which anyway will be guided step by step.
I think it's genious: taking inspiration from old customs and dressing them up for fashion (victim) girls. Can't wait to buy a rocking chair and spending the rest of the winter knitting.
Here there are some greedy ideas for perfect gifts for all those into gourmet. I always loved receiving candies, cookies, truffles in beautiful boxes which I could keep once eaten all the deliciousness inside. Colourful, vintage, tinplate made boxes full of sublime sweets...can you think about something more thoughtful, romantic, and beautiful?
Vogue posted these gorgeous looks to take inspiration from, with reasonable prices. Finally also Vogue got that now being fashion and glamorous doesn't need a lot of money anymore! Isn't this also the aim of all the fashion blogs (such mine of course): sharing tips about having a gorgeous look without spending a fortune.
The blogs are mostly written by simple girls and women who cannot afford everything they want but who try to look exactly how they want!
Take a look and tell me what you think...
One of the things I love the most is when a day turns out to be unforgettable and special in an easy way.
Yesterday we menage to be free, and to spend the day together. We decided to go for a walk in Perugia, the city where we live.
In Perugia every Christmas time it's held a "Mercatino delle Strenne", which means a Christmas gifts market. It was raining, it was cold, but our hearts were so warm and happy.
