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…




Basic t-shirts

Hello everybody, haven’t been writing for quite a while, I know, today though I feel like sharing a couple of links to some absolutely necessary basic t-shirts.

Whether you wear it under a sweater during Winter, under a jacket in Spring, or on its own in the Summer, you need a good t-shirt, one which will fit you properly and will not fall apart after a few washes.

I bought myself some from Massimo Dutti a while ago and I can therefore vouch for their quality. Their basic t-shirt comes in 4 colours, white, black, navy and grey, here’s the link: BASIC SHORT SLEEVE T-SHIRT

I love this top because it’s fitted, but not too tight, making feminine and not “tarty” looking, long enough to cover up possible “imperfections”, but not too long to making it difficult to wear it with everything. The fabric it’s lovely, soft and just the right weight (yes! not too thin but not too heavy!!). Ah, I also like the neck, just the right depth!

If you prefer instead a v-neck, here’s one from COS (white, black and navy available) : WIDE V-NECK T-SHIRT

Both companies have other basic t-shirts styles if you want to have a better look.


Winter long sleeves

Quality is everything but attention to details is essential to make an outfit stylish. So, if you wear a gorgeous high neck jumper for example, made of cashmere perhaps (or some other excellent quality wool), and your sleeves are just right….well, it is not the same as having your sleeves a little long. And if your long sleeves have some other long sleeves showing a little underneath, it’s another one again (e.g. shirt or top) . The second two options being the stylish way to go I reckon. It just looks better! It looks more luxurious, cosier, warmer, etc. etc. Some examples:

All pictures are by DBE (DBE’s Blog) as she obviously shares my love for longer sleeves, and I love just about every one of her pictures!
