Fringe Boots

Over the knee boots, sharp shouldered jacket, flowery scarf, red gloves, Fendi bag and leather tights, she didn't miss one detail when she put together this incredible ensemble did she?!

Yes I will!

White lace tights and black booties huh? How come I never thought of this before? Oh wait I just did... I can totally rip off her look!

Thigh high

Prada thigh high boots, studded jacket and classic ray ban wayfarer sunglasses. Can you say... SEXY? See you have to be this tall for the boots to have a killer effect.

Don't leave home without:

Extraordinary and utterly chic minaudieres. Great things do come in small packages! Big bags are o.k during the day but at night it's necessary to leave everything at home because it won't fit in one of these... but who cares! All of them from McQueen to Celestina, Bottega Veneta and Pucci are eye candies and I can't really say which one I like best!! I want all of them.

Go Green

Green bag lady was in a hurry but I got to take a quick pic of her and her Chloe bag! Do you like it?

Layer up!

It's getting chillier and chillier, but instead of opting for huge coats, add numerous layers! The results: I have no idea but she looks so damn cool!

New Abercrombie Store in Milan

A mega Abercrombie & Fitch store is about to open in Milan this month, and what better way to get noticed than six packs and underwear hanging out. This is so very Abercrombie... not that we're complaining!

Interview with famous handbag designer: Sara Battaglia

Sara Battaglia is a young, drop dead gorgeous, Italian designer.  You may be familiar with her sister Giovanna Battaglia who works for Vogue Pelle and Vogue Gioiello, she parades Sara's bags all over the world and is quite loved by the fashion crowd.  I wanted to let you know, how fascinating I find Sara to be.  She exudes creativity and confidence, is the soul of any party and has the ability to talk about anything, to anyone.  If this is not enough to be her fan, take a look at some of her stunning handbags below.  I interviewed the designer recently and this is what she had to say.

Fashion Memoires: What inspires you:

Sara Battaglia: Before I design I think about women in general, or about my ideal of a woman.  I also think about what I would like to have at the moment (What is my taste right now and why).  Once I have some kind of sketch made I start putting together all my research, which may be parts of a film I recently viewed, a book I read or even music; elements I collect from my daily life and all my trips. 

FM: Since when did you start your handbag line?

SB: My first handbag collection was that of winter 2009, but it all started in a very naïve way, just to see what external reactions I would get. The real first collection is this spring/Summer 2010, which is filled with beautiful colors.

FM: Is your sister your muse?

SB: I would say so yes…She’s my ideal of a woman, a mixture of her and myself too.

FM: Where do you do research for your collections?

SB: My research starts since I wake up in the morning, I don’t have a precise place or moment, I follow my instincts mostly, obviously respecting the deadlines I have. I may do research while I’m at museums or just shopping.

FM: What other projects are you currently working on?

SB: Apart from my line, I am designing handbags for Moncler, following their style and the history of the brand but spiking it up with colors and new developments.

FM: Where do you see yourself in 10 years and doing what?

SB: In ten years I will be 35! I see myself having a bright career and letting all the creativity in me be put to different uses, even beyond fashion, for example doing art exhibits, short films and even photography which I love so much.  All this being surrounded by a family and kids!

FM: When I think about you, the first words that come to my mind are: creative, fun, easy going and funky!  What adjectives would you use to describe yourself? 

SB: Crazy but conscious of what I do, sometimes to tell you the truth I’m very instinctive and passional and thus a dreamer…

There's no stopping her and we wish her the best with all her projects!

Next Season: Go Nude

Next season will probably be a nude one, almost every show presented pieces that had a neutral toned pallette. Shoes in this color are very flattering, they make legs longer, see through pieces in these colors are most definitely already on my wish list!

A Coordinated Mismatch

A very dangerous color combination in deed, the results? Interesting I say! Incredibly enough this outfit looks good. (Take a hint boring people of the world). Sometimes taking risks pays off.

Biker Sweet

On her: Biker boots, Balenciaga bag and studded tights.  Doesn't she still look sweet and fun??

Fur and Shine

This girl looks fabulous and cozy... I've got to get me one of those outfits! I love people who have fun with fashion and take chances, especially wearing shine during unconventional times of the day.

LBD face off round 1


There seems to be at least one in almost every collection for next season, so I choose two of the greatest french brands for my face off round 1, make your pick now and let me know:  Agressive warrior Vs feminine ladylike Balmain or Lanvin.

Trend: Embellished Heels

Heels are getting higher and stranger from some designers.  One thing to notice is that this fall, a lot of the attention is on the heel: metallic, in different shapes and sizes but definitely completely out of the ordinary.  A classic black pump won't do anymore so make our pick and let me know what you opted for!

Casual Cool

I'm loving the color combination and most of all the Halston leather jacket, you don't see those around often but they are among my favorite, almost always silk lined and in vintage inspired silhouettes which is not that common in a season ruled by Rick Owens.

She looks adorable in this little dress, like a big doll dresses up in lace.

Sunday Brunch at 10 Corso Como

Exotic leather on a sunday at 11 am... now that's quite a fancy way to eat your croissant.

B-day Gift

I got new shoes for my B-day!! It was 2 days ago and I was still celebrating, sorry for not posting them before! The world is in need of more pictures of my shoes, that's for sure.  And since I' m a girl and the only reason we like to go out is to brag about something new(even if we don't like to admit it), I will look for an occasion to see my friends! I'll keep you posted!

Tight Land

Tights have become fundamental items in our wardrobes,  I hope you get inspired to wear funky ones now that it's getting chilly!

Stripe up.

Aged or brushed finishes on leather are big trends! Take a look:

Replacement for Skinny?

I've seen these around enough to make me want to get a pair. I know skinny jeans will be around for a while longer (and I'm glad because I still love them) but I will need something to replace them with eventually... what do you think? (A different alternative from boyfriend jeans also... Let's just see if the look suits me). I recommend pairing them with heels, I know I will!

Stunning in Neutral Colors

I'm a complete fan of her look,  I especially adore her necklace!  What's not to love here?

Attention to details

Pay close attention to the oversized clutch, two necklaces and barbwire-like bracelet, also to the white top's embroidered details. Understatedly chic indeed.  

Friday, October 9, 2009


I really like the way she accessorized her look with a long pearl necklace.  Nice touch how she added color to her grey outfit with these multicolored Prada shoes.  I'm into stockings wore with open toe sandals too.

Piece of Advice

She's looking good in those tights, white silk shirt and lace-up ankle booties.  This is the way to go shopping here in Italy, seriously do not wear your casual sunday attire here!

Objects of Desire

In my search to bring you only the best and most exclusive, I have stumbled upon a collection of jewelry that will turn some heads!  Katch Collection by Kathy Flesch is a new up and coming brand that produces hand made pieces of art!  

Check these out!

This is some serious footwear!  I'm sorry to post so many pics of shoes, this is NOT a shoe blog or anything, I'm just obsessed with shoes just like any other normal girl in the planet... right? (Somebody back me up here).

Via della Spiga, Milan

Interesting way of using the thin sporty belt. She was rocking a casual but very put together look. I see that people keep wearing those ray bans  still, they don't look good on my face... I have tried all styles of them on and nothing! I hope people get over those soon!

Effortlessly Cool

She looks effortlessly cool. Studded denim jacket, Zanotti ankle boots, Balenciaga multicolored bag, skull scarf... all layered in a fascinating way.
