Nails Party

DSC_2996 DSC_2987
In the last months, I prefered to have my nails polished with neutral skin color, light pink, or french manicure. But now that spring is here, my wish for color has been renewed.
Therefore, I went through all my nail polish little bottles (a whole beauty case) and picked some pastel as well as some very bright shades which I am feeling like wearing again for the warm season.
What about you? What nail polish are you wearing this season?

Have a colorful spring day :)!

DIY - New Buttons, New Trench

Remember that a few posts ago, I told you about my purchase of new buttons for my trench coat? 
My Zara trench coat (bought about 4 years ago) is still in good shape, but its original buttons were all damaged and old. Throwing away my beloved trench was definitely not an option. Therefore, I searched for some pretty new buttons to add, and now I'm almost finished.

I am looking forward to show you the finished new trench :)! 

Happy Saturday!

Moustaches Have Never Looked so Cute!

Definitely a current love: Peter Ibruegger cheeky and charming moustache mugs.
It is impossible not to want them all!
The creator wanted to achieve something of high quality, but affordable and appealling to everyone. His visions became reality in the form of the original mugs in the last picture above.  
The idea behind this everyday design object is to give you the possibility to enjoy masquerading behind your favorite character moustache: Fu-Magnum, Mustafa-Chaplin, and Morice-Poirot.
Peter was so kind as to send me this lovely Morice-Poirot Mug with sugar bowler hat that I absolutely adore. Thank you Peter! 
Isn't it adorable?
Discover more super funny and cute Peter Ibruegger designs and products here. 
 So worth it!

Have a lovely evening everyone!

My Very Casual Saturday Outfit

For a very normal Saturday spent between some shopping with my mom (we both needed some new bottons for our coats. I'll show you the results on my trench coat as soon as I am finished :)!), a little walk in the city of Como, some works at home, and other little things one tries to do during the weekend, when there's more time to finish with all arrears one accumulates during the week, I chose a super comfy and super casual city look. 
It was the first time I got out of the house in the morning without a coat this spring :)! And the temperature was just perfect for my beloved vintage biker jacket :)!

Biker jacket  - vintage
Sweater & shawl - Zara
Skinnies - Tally Weijl
Bangle - found at an outlet
Booties - bought in Como

Sophia Münchhausen Accessories









is a brand specialized in accessories which draws inspiration from the leggendary tales of the famous Baron Münchhausen. The style of the brand is of a rustic but sophisticated elegance. 
The pieces are playful, nobel, and funny. 
Which one of these accessories is your faves?
I like the purple and green bracelet with the coin the most!

Happy happy Friday :)!

Visit @ Avart, Fashion and Design Store


Assy, an old friend of mine, invited me to her fashion & design boutique in Lugano: 
All pieces are of high quality, impecable taste, and have been chosen with a skilled and sophisticated eye. Among the brands in the store there are names such as by Malene Birger, See by Chloé, fiorentini+baker, glowybow, Histoires de Parfum, and ango.
I investigated every corner of the store and found some little big treasures. 

In the pictures: 
The cream light jacket with its fine leather belt is a piece by forteForte. 
I absolutely loved the way it wrapped me as if I was in a soft coocoon. Plus, it is exactly the kind of jacket I like to wear with my skinnies: long and loosy but construcuted (I love skinnies, but one "tight&squeezy" item is enough for my body. A) it's not comfortable, B) trust me, unless you have the size of a supermodel, it most probably won't look that good on you ;)! And it surely would not look good on me :)! C) the contrast of stretchy and loosy is much cooler than any other possible combination. So: thumbs up for long and loosy but constructed jackets!

The black short jacket is an Iliaria Nistri Design. 
Her style is rather goth, and with a very sophisticated touch.

The accessories of Radà were my absolute faves. They are colorful, playful and glittery, but still very very chic :).
More fashion, more design and more pictures will follow tomorrow :)!

Should there be any problems with the copyright of the pictures I posted, please send me an e-mail at and I'll remove them as soon as possible, thank you.
