The right clothes perform miracles

Today I disposed of my work clothes, white polo and skirt, for a much much more suitable dress and I felt a different person.

I hate polos and they don’t suit me. I am quite wary of white too, so, you can immagine an all white look! I don’t have a tan, not that I like it so much either, I find it sometimes rather common (so uptight of me, isn’t it?!!). A little colour is ok, but just a healthy shade of it. My hair is going grey, mind, a not so bad shade of it fortunately.

I changed into this gorgeous black COS dress (which is great with no tan), loose in all right places but not too much to make me look like I have no shape, long enough to cover my knees (they have definitely never been nice). I felt human again!

A nice pair of sandals, earrings, handbag and groomed hair/hands/feet and I was ready to face the world!

Denim shirt

This morning I woke up with an acute need for a denim shirt. So I started looking on-line, just to get an idea of what’s available.

Here are my requirements: it needs to be loose but feminine, with a collar but not too stiff, fabric has to be cotton and has to be thin but not too much (and it does need to be cotton, other fabrics won’t do, they just don’t have the same look), it also needs to be mid blue, buttons can’t be cheap looking…Not that I am fussy…well, perhaps a tiny bit!

Here are my finds:

 

This is my first choice

But this is not too bad, although a little too light blue…

This an alternative which has nothing to do with what I was looking for but, there you are, things don’t always go as planned!!

Ballerette

Un sogno diventato realtà per le amanti della ballerina. Un tripudio di colori, forme e pellami ! Ballerette è .com ma è anche negozi. E naturalmente ce n’è uno a Bologna.

Ci sono andata e…sono tornata a casa con due paia di ballerine! Ho preferito vederle dal vivo per la prima volta, controllare che “fosse tutto oro quel che luccicava”!  La vestibiltà è direi normale, io porto un 38 e 38 ho acquistato. La qualità sembra buona, anche se il tempo dovrà confermare o smentire…Il costo: il modello base “alleggerisce” solamente di 69 euro ma si arriva anche a 189 per i modelli più particolari. Io ho preferito due paia del modello Colonna, che è la classica ballerina con punta tonda e laccetto.

É ovvio che io adoro questo tipo di scarpa, la trova estremamente chic, comoda e versatile.

Ballerette ha tinte che trovo stupende, come queste per esempio:

o queste:

Non sono meravigliose?!! Perfette anche con la gamba bianchiccia primaverile…
