I keep on disappearing, I know. I went off writing on my blog….again …and again, several times in fact! I thought, there must be a reason and I think I have worked it out. The thing is, it’s a time in my life where a lot of changes are taking place, mainly in my head, but also in my body, yuck!
I have always loved fashion and I always will, but it’s not enough anymore. It was nice to have a parallel life, one where I wore all of those gorgeous clothes, but the reality is very different now. I mainly wear house clothes (what a terrible term!!), sport clothes (this sounds much more glamorous than the previous one but it isn’t, I only go walking!!) and occasionally, as in a lot less than the first two, I actually wear decent clothes, even though just to go to the supermarket! Ah ah ah (sad laugh here).
I must accept I am not the person I used to be and I am getting older, as everyone does, one hopes! God, I sound soo serious!! I really don’t want it to be though, in fact, I want to start writing about my everyday life (only the interesting bits though), as a “FIFTY SOMETHING”, one who wants to have a laugh about things and wants to smile an awful lot more! I am done with serious and sad. Enough of that for everybody, every day. I am done with politically correct and nice to people at all costs. I don’t intend to offend anyone, not on purpose at least, but I want to speak without worrying constantly about people’s reaction.
Another matter. I am Italian but, having a husband who is a native English speaker, I sometimes think in that language. I don’t know why but I prefer to write in English when speaking about clothes. I suppose it just depends in which language I have read something about a specific subject, whether I have spoken to somebody about something (usually Italian here as I live in Italy) or what my mood is in that moment, for that matter! So, all this to say I am probably going to write in both languages and, for now, not bother translating into the other.
Here comes the next thing on my list: I do not have the kind of followers’ number in order for me to require translating what I write in the other language. Also, I am going to do this rambling on mainly for myself, I kind of need it. Difficult to explain why, perhaps i will understand that too soon…Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t care about people liking what I write, that would be insincere of me, I do, just not enough to work too hard at it though.
So, here we are, I have published my first “FIFTY SOMETHING” post!!
I love everything beautiful, fabrics, colours…..well…not exactly bright ones, I prefer gray, navy, beige, black… I do like some brights for accessories though!
I love to see a nice look, a pair of great shoes, a nicely cut dress…
I am no fashion expert. I am not up to date with the latest trends/designers/collections, etc.
I follow fashion on magazines, but above all, I look all around me.
I love shopping, for myself and for others.
What I do is observe people and follow some blogs. I have my opinion, neither right or wrong, just mine.
My personal taste is usually very simple but exceptions are always around the corner…
This Blog is just about my STYLE POINT OF VIEW.
If anybody were to write to me I will be happy and I will answer if they wish me to do so.
