As we are in the very middle of winter, the holidays are over and it's getting colder and colder each day, we might need a little reminder that this season is not that bad after all.

If you've been reading me for a while, you know that pussy bows are my thing. This striped blouse is the newest addition to my collection and I couldn't wait to style it with a semi-elegant look, perfect for a busy weekday: a pair of flared jeans, ankle boots with a moderately high heel and a classic black coat. I'm also wearing my new little treasure, Daniel Wellington's new release, the 34mm Classy Sheffield watch in "rose gold". I love this classic model as it goes with pretty much everything and the Swarowski crystals give it a nice feminine touch and some lovely sparkle.

I know it seems like Christmas has just ended, but I've got news for you: Valentine's Day is right around the corner! I thought I'd share with you some pretty decoration and gift ideas - also great if you want to surprise yourself ;)

This is what I imagine Blair Waldorf would wear on a mild winter afternoon... more or less. This plaid skirt just arrived in the mail yesterday and I was really glad to see that its fabric is really soft and warm and I'm very happy with the colors too - a nice take on boarding school chic. I wore it with suede boots, my trusty "Spy" bag and a soft fur cover-up to keep me warm. I felt like the only piece of jewelry I needed was this teardrop shaped black pearl pendant, one of my favorites.

Walking the streets after sunset wrapped in layers of wool - pink and purple, just like the sky, coincidentally. Then they turned on the street lights and everything became yellow. Including my pictures. Oh well.

I've been waiting for this cat ear beanie and owl bag to arrive for quite a while, but they were definitely worth the wait. I've found that wearing childish things can be really fun every once in a while and it actually made me happy to wear cat ears on the top of my head in the middle of a grey and depressed city. I didn't get any weird looks at all. Well, maybe a few... :D

In this new column I am going to share with you some of my new brand discoveries. There are so many fashion brands in the world - both new and established - that it is impossible to know them all, but sometimes, if we're lucky, we can find ones that we fall in love with. Let's get started with my first selection and let me know if you would like to see this kind of post every month! :)

If someone asked me what I consider the most unflattering piece of clothing, I would say the culottes, without a moment of hesitation. Until today I was sure that I would never ever wear them, but as they say, never say never! I saw this aubergine wool pair at the Aesthetic Viale della Repubblica boutique today and I thought I'd challenge myself to create a decent look with them. Do you think I succeeded?

It is officially the middle of winter and my hair is getting dry and brittle and incredibly difficult to style thanks to the almost-daily shampooing, the ombré bleaching, the cold, the dry air and my diet - rich in Lindt truffles and poor in everything else. This is why I decided to shop around a little and see if I could find some natural products that would make the situation better. Here's what looked promising:

Hello my loves and happy New Year!
We shot the first outfit of 2015 today and I was really excited to get back to work after the holidays with renewed energy. It was quite chilly so I wore lots of layers - a bodysuit, a sleeveless knit top, a kimono vest and a scarf - all held together by my mother's leather belt from the 80's. When I wear layers I like to create some definition by adding a belt at the waist and it makes for a more pulled-together look as well. What do you think?
