Como Piazza JulyA spontaneous trip to Como last weekend turned out to be the greatest idea ever! I enjoyed every single minute. Pure Dolce Vita!

COMO_IIIJust window-shopping! Unfortunately, all shops were closed on Sunday. I will definitely have to come back soon for some serious splurging because Como has the best boutiques!

For me this place holds a lot of memories and emotions as it used to be my weekend escape from Milan’s big city jungle. I tend to get real sentimental everytime I’m there. Lake Como is one of these timeless places that never seem to change.

COMO_IISince Stella McCartney brought back the snake print (check out her pre-fall collection!), I’ve been wearing this Zara silk number to death. I recently found it on a pile of stuff that I was going to throw away. It has a beautiful ruched cleavage with a little bow. Thanks Stella for “recycling” this trend sooner than expected;-)! Mixed and matched with my new Missoni kitten heels, my Chloé Elsie bag that I got last winter and a vintage belt.


One thing I’ve learned is that EVERYTHING in fashion will come back. In this case: the skinny belt. My mom bought this one like 20 years ago.
