On the Risk of sounding too clumpsey, I came back last monday from my summer hollydas to Milan hopping to be back in my normal daily life.
It happens to be that our beloved city also takes a break during the month of August, well living in Italy who wouldn’t ?
But it really took me by surprise to come in the middle of the week and see the city empty, stores closed everywhere and almost everyone on holidays.
This video explains better the surprise that welcomed last monday.
Since coming back to the blogg merited a decent topic I went out for inspiration, or at least that is what I thought.
Basically I ended up with a new pair of shorts , a sunburn, and maybe a new pound on because of ice-cream.
Brera was enjoying the summer break ! and eventhought Montenapoleone was not, it wasn’t the same without the streets filled with shoppaholics from around the globe.
To make the story short, just turning back home I stopped at Mondadori to pick up some literary entertainment.
And there it was!, in between the white and tan covers of elle, dossier, vanitifair and cosmopolitain, with its neon captions, fluo colors and contrast and macaroons on the back, It was Plastik visual magazine.
That magazine is the reason why I still believe in love at first sight. I found it exactly in July last year in the exact same place and way, the day I was accepted by NABA.
So it gave me hope (tun and now again) , and since hope dies the last. That was exactly what this post was going to be about. Finding the last traces of fabulousness that still blossoming in the city.
And on the risk of being punched by some ladies who did not speak the english, this is what my style hunting safari came out with and their grades in level of effort :
She DID understand that being a tourist doesn’t mean it makes you invisible! (A for keeping the hope alive)
Fabulous mix of color and cultural heritage ! (A+ for oriental fabulousness)
Being gorgeous in unawareness … you are just born with this kind of things! (A+ for coolness)
Camera, camera bag, purse and Boyfriend…. all in the same shade… thats what I call accessorizing with vision! (B+ for a matching effort)
Hasn´t it happen to you ?… you see a gorgeous guy on the street and then :”damn it, is a lesbian :(” (B for gender disappointment)
Country dress, boots and LV bag… at least she made an effort! (B+ for good behavior )
So that is how I celebrated Ferrgasoto, this italian holiday that is the reason why the whole month everyone is gone.
To the people in the pictures, if you ever find your picture here thank you for being so inspiring.
And remember fashion weeks season is just around the corner! be prepared
Love and macaroons!
