How to style a dress for your body type
Sometimes you want to wear a light and cute dress but then that obsessive thought prevents you and drags you into an absurd mental vortex where absurd prejudices rule.

The puffed sleeves that will surprise you
The first time I saw the puffed sleeves I immediately thought of Grendizer, of the electronic boomerangs he had on the shoulders. Do you remember him? For this reason, I thought I would have never worn puffed sleeves. Then, this spring, after the invasion of lots of tops with voluminous details on the shoulders, I began to get used to this new trend and I understood what they were for. To better define the body shape! The shoulders seem wider and consequently, the waist seems tighter and overall we look more like a nice hourglass. You can interpret them in a more personal style, by combining them with what you like most. Follow me on the dedicated page of the blog, to discover how to style and wear the gorgeous puffed sleeves this autumn!

Garçonne style after 40
Dear friends! On this gloomy November day, which makes me a little nostalgic, I want to talk about the garçonne style, a style that reminds me of my adolescence. I still like this trend that started from menswear to turn it into women’s clothing. It is a style that comes from the elegant fashion of the younger boys and also from the slightly dandy one – and here it is right to recall one of my myths, David Bowie when he was known as the White Duke for his unique and very elegant style. Blazers, men’s trousers, trench coats, white shirts, in short, all those garments that belong by right to the universe of your partner and that can be interpreted in many ways for this fall fashion, even to create the look for the office of us women over 40 and over 50.

So as not to be unprepared for these changes, let’s wrap ourselves in a wool cardigan, or in a light knit duster!

How much light and joy on the catwalks of this Fall fashion! Such a rich colour palette has never been seen before in colder months! Brilliant I would say, especially for those like me who love colours and patterns, so special to give some brightness to the darkest days of the year.

Denim clothes are always on fashion. For that special colour that matches so easily with everything, for the latest trends that mix styles and pair common fabrics with the most precious cloth. But above all because there are denim trousers for all body shapes and budgets. And for many other reasons too, that still lead us to have at least 4 or 5 pairs of denim pants in the closet.
