::Call Me, Vintage::

Have you noticed that lately everything is "vintage"? There are a lot of vintage markets, we love to buy vintage jewelry and accessories, we are always looking for vintage styles' inspirations, and of course, now we take pictures and, automatically, we add a vintage photograph effects on them. 
This weekend I had 20 minutes to spare, and I decided to play with my Mac's photo booth and Aperture editing tools and ...TA-DAH!! ... here is the final result.
Three different styles in vintage,
which one do you prefer?

Happy Monday everybody .. A new week to accomplish new goals!

::Summer Appetizer::

It has been raining for days! I'm so upset, I'm dying to go to the beach! 
I hope that next week the sun will come out. 

In the meantime, I've been hanging out with my family and my dearest friends, partying and eating like crazy (...I'll start the diet the minute I touch Milanese ground, seriously!).... and talking about food, do you like the pictures above?... you might think I cook it but...duh! of course not ... my mom would kill me if I burn out her kitchen. Thanks God, I have two great cookers in my life that enjoy making food for me .. and, if they insist .. I can't complain, right!?
The dish was a Pita Bread Salad with pesto and avocado (by Joel Reyes);
and the dessert were Cookies Fruit tarts with nutella, mango and kiwi (by Mariela Medina)
Stay tuned for more yummy stuff!!

::Hello from Dominican Republic::

Hi there!
So, like I said on my last post I finally made it to my summer destination. After long weeks of thinking I decided to do a trip to Dominica Republic; because, at the end, there is not place like home. 
Here, there is a photo diary from my first days in this beautiful island. 
I'll be here for 3 more weeks so stay tuned for more.
bisous, bisous!

::Stripes [=] Dots [::] Stripes [=]::

I don't usually do "Outfit Posts" on my blog, but I decided that from time to time I'll share with you some of my favorites looks that I like to wear.

Today's Look:
Stripes [=] Dots [::] Stripes [=]

Thanks to Prada, and its Spring/Summer 2011 collection; today, there are no rules for pattern combinations. I mean, stripes can go with flowers or arabesques with bananas, so of course polka dots can match with stripes... well, I certainly decided to play a little bit with it on my outfit. I like how it looks.
So don't be afraid, there is not a right or a wrong answer; mix pattern; mix colors ... however, if you don't want to be so drastic, play with different patterns but maintain the same color palette as you can see that was what I did. Still, it remains very fresh. 
We are in the Summer of 2011... give it a try!

sunglasses: h&m
bandeau : stradivarius
tank top: tally weijl
skirt: alcott
shoes: h&m
necklace and earrings : Ela Design

::I have what it takes::

pictures by Francesca Gambino for
Il Viaggio della Farfalla

This last month have been super challenging for me, and I love challenges. Keeping up with my full time job as a designer and also preparing this Style Portfolio has been a test for me... and I have to say that I loved every step of the way. These last couple of weeks, it made me realize how much I love blogging, sharing my thoughts, writing about what inspires me and specially talking about fashion... I got really into the Style Correspondent duties that I know I can still keep doing this job even after this contest!

I have the passion, the knowledge and most of all the desire to learn even more. Going to New York Fashion Week, has been one of my biggest dreams, and I have always believed that sooner or later I will be there. Now I have the chance, and I feel so grateful and excited by simply by the idea of being considered. Thanks to Nokia and ELLE Magazine, for giving me this wonderful opportunity to prove that I have what it takes to be a Style Correspondent during fashion week. I will assure you I will be prepared, I'll work hard and most of all, I will give it my best .

A special thanks to all my family, friends and followers for voting for me, for you kind words and for believing in me. I feel so blessed!

Let's hope for the best!

::New York, New York::

picture take by me

"Gonna quit my job and move to New York, 'Cause somebody told me that's where Dreamers should go....." .thats what Sara Bareillles says in her song, Vegas... and I think it might be true.

Two years ago, I went to the wonderful city of new York and fell in love. Maybe it sounds cheesy but it was love at first sight! After living and traveling through Europe for 2 years I, truly, needed to witness New York. And the first day there, I knew why it is considered one of the Fashion Capitals of the world. New York inspired me in so many ways; the mix of cultures, the people, the architecture, the social subcultures, the museums, but also the little things, like a ride in the subway, getting lost in the subway (... been there!!!), an afternoon in the park, watching the young artists in Union Square, the lights of Time Square, a sunday breakfast, eating a pizza or a hot dog on the street, doing window shopping, checking out the street style of the people ...for me it is all magical and it has a special allure.

But if we need to talk about fashion, New York is the first city to present during the fashion season, so it gives everyone a fresh start. It's the first peek we have to knowing the upcoming trends and what will be IN in the next season.
The list of great designers is enormous, however the thing I love the most is the opportunity for the new imminent designers; thanks to the CDFA and other organizations, young talent gets a chance to show what they have to offers, making the fashion system grow with fresh new ideas. Also, the city gets you on the right path to accomplish something in the fashion world;it provides you with internship and freelance opportunities that will prepare you for future jobs.

Many people say that New York can be a stressful, hard and cold city.... And it may be true. But I believe that it can teach you a lot, because when you want to achieve something good in life and be great at it; you have to go through big obstacles, stand up, learn from them and keep on going until you find what makes you happy
