La vita e Bella

filio6

After spending way too much time with way too many Italians here (I mean half of Bocconi is in LA at this moment) and tasting the best carbonara ever, I have to admit that life is beautiful and that this sounds better in Italian.

Una faccia una razzia (cause we do share the same Nutella addiction) and we do know how to party. And since I will miss ragazzi miei our next get together is already planned and will be in Sardinia. Or Fontenera. Or both.

Viva l’Italia! It really was the best carbonara I’ve ever eaten.

Wearing a striped crop top (also here), white frill skirt, leopard Vans sneakers, Celine cat eye sunglasses (I am in love with these), Bella raffia hat BCBG, love ankle chain Asos

Barbie World

A16A8699filio

I am a Barbie girl in a Barbie world.

I don’t know about life in plastic but life in LA is fantastic. Learning my way into the fashion pr biz (like I’m looking for trouble), fedexing Brian Atwood pumps to Debra Messing with multiple Urth Caffe breaks in the meantime, Kundalini yoga bliss sessions with Yogi Tej every morning (always praying that our auditions will turn out fine) and enjoying late night supermarket aisle walks as usual.

Oh yes, I kind of postponed my stay here. I guess I can’t let go of those palm trees just yet.

Barbie out.

Wearing denim dungarees Asos, Barbie crop top, blazer Mango, peep toe boots Zara (similar here), heartbreaker beads bracelet Venessa Arizaga, Hot Mess gold chain necklace The Urban Smith

The Last Bookstore

The Last Bookstore you had me at books. The labyrinth helped, too. And the fact that I thought I was in a magic wonderland. Entered by accident, stayed for hours. I kept discovering cool finds at every single corner. The colour coded upper floor was a sight for sore eyes and the artist gallery filled with objets peculier will make me come back.

So many books, so little time.

Me & My Paisley

SONY DSC

Remember this one?

I had actually forgotten about it, until this happened.

Recreate this look by wearing a pair of paisley or floral printed pants, a black crop top, a belt with silver accents, YSL caged heels if you have them, if not, why not try these in black or silver and a pair of classic Ray Bans.

A tan helps, too. ;)

Mike Kelley at MOCA

20140509_144906-1

Well. We weren’t supposed to take any pictures.

But then again, in Mike Kelley‘s own words, let’s talk about disobeying.

Creepy never looked so good and even if it’s more of a mindf*ck than expected, it’s definitely nothing a Mexicali Taco & Co taco break and a stroll around little Tokyo can’t fix.

A must see.

I wanna be a plastic toy

rsz_img_0002

There is another world but it is inside this one and it’s full of rainbow backgrounds, rust and stardust and the worlds best hot dogs.

You breathe in the magic, you lay down on the grass sipping coconut water, on Sundays you go to the flea market and your heart beats faster when the neon lights turn on. And if you’re not hypnotised enough you wonder if it’s all a dream.

You just don’t leave this place.

Life in color

rsz_img_0143

Downtown LA is really FULL of surprises. Take this Kim West mural for example. You can’t but just fall in love with it.

Although I don’t even know anymore, I’m kind of in love with everything and everyone at this point.

Hidden gems everywhere, from the more obvious street style graffitis to cool 20 guest restaurants and dimly lit rooftop patios. The days are pleasingly innocent but the nights.. the nights are pure magic, shining through neon lights.

Life in color, high on sunshine, dreams do come true.

Today

IMG_9901 My today.

Downtown. Mashti Malones ice cream (real crushed oreos for the win). Co driver speaking french. Heatwave. Greystone mansion (that beauty and THOSE murders). Palm trees for hours. XL Red Bull. Iggy Azalea. In love.

I wanna be buried in number 5 and a Green Card to live happily ever after in LA until then.

Thanx.

Summer Stripes- Shorts Edition

_74A2084low Shorts to love, shorts to keep, shorts to show off. 

From crop tops, blazers and sneakers in the morning to buttoned up collar shirts and pumps to easily take you to evening (and thus way better entertainment options), shorts are not to be kept hidden away in your closet. On the contrary; pull them out, style them up a million different ways (those high waisted options are really chameleons) and enjoy a walk or two, or better even a few dancing moves. You don’t suppose you’re gonna just sit wearing those, right?

Just remember to keep those legs soft and shiny (my favorite product is Benefit’s Bathina)!

Are you wearing culottes yet?

_74A1975low
If you buy one thing this month, make sure it’s a pair of culottes.

The runways were awash, the magazines full of the must have pieces and the streetstyle pics proved this trend totally right AND doable. Time to actually wear them, no?

So, here’s another post on Joytv.gr about wearing the pretty awesome culottes; let’s admit this, they are skirt sexy and shorts cool so a definite outfit winner.

Style them with a denim shirt and colorful accessories for a casual look or opt for a monochrome pair and upgrade your look with a blazer, a white top and killer pumps.
