a matter of colors/seasons/places

Today while checking my +1500 photos on iphone I found these two snapshots of my closet taken in two different seasons of last year.

Well..."I can't help but wonder"...what the %&@ happened to my closet?! It's true that I hate Winter season and that I can barely handle the cold weather but this drastic color range change I think reflects it much better than said. Also Florence is a very "monochromatic" city as well so...

the conclusion of my thoughts for tonight is that not only seasons but also cities reflect on our clothes and our moods. Oh and I forgot to tell you for the first time ever, I got dressed in  black head-to-toe! Definitely an accomplishment not to be proud of...

Angelos Bratis for YOOX

Well, I must confess this was a SO well written press release that I was really tempted to leave it the way it was sent to me!!

"To celebrate the launch of the Greek version of the virtual store, unveils a unique collaboration with Greek designer Angelos Bratis, debuting online his Spring/Summer collection, alongside an exclusive caftan-dress designed exclusively for and available online starting from today.

 The Spring/Summer collection - ECHO LOVES NARCISSUS, is inspired by the famous Greek myth. According to Angelos Bratis this legend is more contemporary than ever in today’s digital age. Hi-tech Romanticism permeates Angelos Bratis’ collection: algorithmic design blends with softness and fluidity – geometric shapes like the triangle and rhombus in ‘Facebook’ blue and Narcissus yellow create seamless color block dresses, crafted from natural materials and cut directly on the mannequin like traditional Greek peplums.

Greek tradition fuses with the future in the exquisite Y-caftan dress, created exclusively for “The Y-caftan came to mind when I was looking at the app on my iPhone: the letter Y - a beautiful Greek symbol” affirms Angelos Bratis. A strong graphic silhouette combines with the geometry of the letter "Y" in bright yellow against a simple square of grey silk cut in four pieces. Bias-cut side panels drape against the body and give the garment a sense of fluidity.

 Angelos Bratis for is the first collaboration between and a Greek designer, and the perfect way to celebrate the launch of the Greek version of the website."

..and the above picture proves that stylists are lucky enough to be able to wear after shooting, the model's clothes!

Stylist Emily Rusby transformed a "magazine shoot" look into something totally streetstyle approvable and wearable. The red shocks are THE detail of the look!

Firenze4Ever 4th Edition_the party

Well words are not enough to describe this season's edition of Firenze4Ever Luisa Via Roma bloggers party! The store and upper restaurant floors were emptied of clothes and full of pink-worn fashion and music bloggers, friends, photographers, fiorentine stylish residents and even some people that traveled from other Italian cities just for this event! 

Of course everyone was excited to meet the "star bloggers" behind the blogs Fashion Squad, Bryan Boy, Style Scrapbook, Fashion Toast and The Blonde Salad (blogs mentioned in the order that you get to see them in the first pic)! Other than that, people were coming up and down, Joan as Police Woman rocked the party with her amazing voice and songs and the cute Pug Dogs were exposed in the walls of Luisa!

Definitely one of the best editions I've frequented so far as the place was full and everyone seemed to enjoy the music, the drinks, the food, the outfits and of course being photographed by so many bloggers around!

Firenze4Ever 4th Edition_the outfit

Luisa Via Roma organized yesterday night  for the 4th time the single most important international bloggers reunion party and this time the dress code was "Pink Carpet" (last time it was animalier check post here)!

Luckily I already had in my closet my Sparkle & Fade shirt-dress bought from Urban Outfitters when in London last June that I combined with my favorite (but very few times worn) shoes from Fullah Sugah!
Stay tuned because the next post features more photos of the party and a "bloggers family" photo that I'm sure you'll love!!!
