Roma

Ok, so these were a long time coming, I have been very remiss of late when it comes to posting, especially since this is a new blog and all, but still, better late than never, here are some photos from my holiday in Rome. I miss the eternal city so so so much, I wish I was still there. After coming back I was totally shocked by the crappy nature of Warsaw coffee and pseudo-Italian cuisine. Seriously, the cappuccinos here are watery and the pizza is doughy. I think I might just have to abstain from Italian food until I am able to visit Italy again, but coffee I cannot give up, hence this morning’s watery medium, double-espresso, nonfat, extra hot cappuccino to go from coffee heaven (which actually has quite good coffee, in comparison with other chains – too bad it hasn’t branched out to western europe, I genuinely think it could more than compete with Starbucks) Okay, now time for the photos…

These are on the Palatine Hill, Roman Forum and Colosseum – aka the biggest, hottest tourist traps the city has to offer:

As for the fashion side the dress is by Mango, the shoes are Kazar and the bag is Topshop.

Oh, and a word of advice: if you ever find yourself visiting the Forum Romanum in full midday heat – take my advice and don’t wear a black dress with an underskirt – you will regret it.

Valentino

Being on holiday in la bella Roma since yesterday (photos coming soon) has inspired me to obsess over take a closer look at Italian fashion, so after browsing through the Valentino fall 2012 collection I have selected my favourite looks to share.

 

Look 1 – stunning, classic, classy, ladylike, perfect

 

Look 5 reminds me vaguely of what the badass vampires used to wear on Buffy all those years ago, long, plain and leather, could use some distressing though…

 

Look 12 – looks like my grandma’s carpet had a car accident with a turkish souk and I love it, fantastic colour scheme and the coat looks nice and warm for winter

 

And last but not least, something less outdoorsy but still perfect for the last rays of summer sunshine, look 17 is a breath of fresh air after all that heavy leather and wool

More later, I need to get some sleep before rushing off to see the Forum Romanum tomorrow!
