Living La Dolce Vita in Rome

Featured

As much as its great monuments – the Colosseum, St Peter’s Basilica, the Pantheon – what I love about Rome are its details: the cobbled lanes and hidden corners, the vivid colours, the aroma of freshly ground coffee wafting out of its cafes. Rome’s streets and piazzas are an endless source of entertainment and, as a history buff, I get a real kick when I think of all the legendary events that have taken place here. Rome is also a fabulous place to eat well and there’s little I love more than a long lunch at a favorite trattoria.

“My absolute favorite activity while I’m here is obviously shopping at Via Condotti and the Spanish Steps where I indulge with my Italian lovers… Dolce Gabbana, Zanotti, Versace, Pucci, Guardiani, and Gucci”

The Art Of Glam

One of the most difficult things to achieve in matters of fashion is that precious, perfectly polished look for which you have to spend tons of money and loads of time. All women want to look like a million bucks regardless of their budget.

“Being glamorous is all about appearing endlessly stylish, confident and classy. Be a student of both art and fashion history, and dress up more often… for work, for play or just for running errands”

My Gloomy January

There was a time when I used to hate the month of January… the grey and cold weather… witnessing all the gorgeous Christmas trees and lights being brutally ripped down all over town… Just all so incredibly depressing. Like a long, miserable Monday that never ended.

“Dressing up in greys can be fun, we just need to remind ourself that with the right accessories and boots, January can actually be quiet refreshing and glamorous. “

What a Difference a Sleeve Can Make

Let your sleeves do the talking this season with some of Springs’s most sought-after shirt silhouettes from bell sleeves to ruffles and off-the-shoulder numbers. From sleek dresses to cool tops and even quirky knits, bell sleeves add a unique dose of fashion to even the simplest of outfits.

“Fitted on the shoulder and flaring out wide toward the wrist, the bell sleeve is the same as it always was, yet totally different. Gone are any hippy and bohemian references, instead, the new bell sleeve is modern and utterly chic.”

Is it Bad Luck Wearing Black on New Years?

One of my girlfriends called me earlier today screaming “I don’t know if it is just a conisidence, but last New Year’s Eve I wore black, and this year was the unluckiest of my life”.
While I love dressing up in something glamorous and sparkly for New Year’s Eve, I must admit that I have dressed in black for New Year’s on a few occasions.

“My friend got me wondering… what really did happen to those years when I wore black myself?”
