Givenchy Roses

13/01/2014, Current Affairs, Florence, Givenchy

I know, I know. The entire solar system and the universe (myself included) castigated Kim Kardashian for wearing that infamous Givenchy roses sofa lewk to last year’s Costume Institute Gala yet here I am, drawn to the same, well, ok, similar, floral situation. I’m currently bored of all my clothes and I need a few exciting things. Now that new merchandise are slowly trickling in at the stores, a mini Givenchy shopping spree at Luisa Via Roma is well-deserved and overdue. I can’t wait to take these items apart and wear them individually. I may have to take the shorts to a tailor when I go back home — crucial to take an inch or two off.

Christopher Kane Cobweb Sweatshirt

06/01/2014, Christopher Kane, Florence, Jason Wu, Resort 2014

Behold yet another major sweatshirt (Resort 2014) from one of my favourite British designers, Christopher Kane. Picked up this piece from Luisa Via Roma yesterday. There’s something romantic yet perverted about it. Obsessed with the lace-style, sheer, embroidered cobweb white floral on the front. Perfect for a little bit of nip exposure from time to time…

U Kane’t Touch This!

19/06/2013, Christopher Kane, Current Affairs, Florence

I love a good Christopher Kane print. Especially when it features scary creatures inspired by old horror films. It’s not every day that I wear fleece sweatshirts and sweat pants but this graphic, head-to-ankle look from Christopher Kane is asking for it. Perfect for mincing around the airport or hustling the city streets.

Casa Cavalli

18/06/2013, Current Affairs, Florence, Roberto Cavalli

Ciao my dearest readers. Greetings from Florence!

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending Eva Cavalli’s party for Cash & Rocket, a tour organized by women raising funds for charity.

Roberto’s son Rob invited a few of us back to their Villa the day after for an impromptu lunch and pool party — a great way to beat the Italian heat. The Cavallis are such gracious hosts. Their home up the Florentine hills is nothing but magnificent and inspiring — think mink carpets, sable fur throws and unicorn sculptures. It was certainly a far cry from how I grew up as a child. It was magical!

Meanwhile, I had to make a new friend out of the leopard-print rabbit fut teddy bear in one of the salons.

That Metallic Burberry Coat

07/01/2013, Burberry, Current Affairs, Florence, Menswear, Spring Summer 2013

It’s only January but I’m so thrilled to get my hands on the new Spring 2013 merchandise that’s slowly trickling in at my favourite shops. This metallic Burberry Prorsum coat is pretty major. I’m not afraid of anything that shines!

Palazzo Capponi Firenze

06/01/2013, Current Affairs, Fashion Bloggers, Florence, Luisa Via Roma

My favourite online superstore Luisa Via Roma hosted a lovely dinner last night at Palazzo Capponi. As y’all know (from instagram, from twitter), I’m back in Florence once again for the bi-annual Luisa Via Roma Firenze4Ever event. I LOVE visiting Florence. It’s my favourite Italian city and oh so inspiring! Also happy to reunite with my real-life friends. Fun times all around!

Grayscale

25/01/2012, Current Affairs, Florence

I like the cocooning effect from my oversized gray Cachentta coat. With all the things going on in my life at the moment, the sheer coziness from a warm coat enveloping me keeps my sanity intact.
