A peek at Viviana’s fall shopping list

shopping guide_viviana volpicella

Girls, you HAVE to check out’s fall shopping guide! Why? International Fashion Influencers like Anna dello Russo, Garance Doré and Rachel Zoe reveal what’s on top of their shopping list for the new season and share their favourites in a beautifully edited guide. My personal highlight is Viviana Volpicella’s choice, whose cool Italian style I simply ADORE.

One of Viviana’s picks for fall is this super-cute leopard messenger bag from FENDI. I really can’t wait for that bag to hit the stores! It’s gonna be my fast-track to cool for any plain outfit.

Here’s one of my favourite Viviana outfits. A beautiful lace dress set off with a cool military parka, YSL sandals and the gorgeous Prada plastic clutch. So simple, so cool! Her signature style includes Rayban Wayfarers (I’ve actually never seen her without) and a pop of color.

Last days of soldes


The last days of sales in Paris have arrived and usually around this time, there is nothing good left anymore…so I was totally excited when I came across this amazing the Kooples necklace yesterday for 50% off. I have been searching all winter for this kind of necklace…it’s the perfect piece to spice up a basic jeans/tee combi and adds the right amount of rock’n'roll to each look.

Well, I have to admit that apart from checking out their sales, I had a look at the new spring pieces. The collection is gonna be super hot, but more on this later. In the mean time, I suggest you check out the Kooples site, they have a really good music player, to which I have been rockin all moring.

I wish you a great weekend, xx

N.Y. loves me

N.Y. lovesme

N.Y. loves me. And I love N.Y. I just know it! We had a sort of long-distance-relationship so far… But Thursday will be the day when I can finally embrace my beloved city and let the world know that we were meant to be! It will be a rendezvous in fashion heaven;-).

Yeah. Back to reality. Fact is: I’m going on a five-days-trip to the big apple with my sis and I have so many plans and a to-do-list of 20 pages (okay, 30!) that five weeks wouldn’t be enough to tick it all off. Taking into account the likely event that I will be dead broke after three days only having shopped like a CRAZY person, five days is the maximum I can do. For now. But this love-story will be continued. Cause N.Y. loves me, u know;-)?

10 Corso Como goes chic-onomics!

10 Corso Como joins The Outnet

During my year in Milan 10 Corso Como used to be my favorite saturday-afternoon-hangout. Not necessarily for shopping but more to be INSPIRED. The music, the fashion, the people – all major trends could be spotted here. Carla Sozzani, former VOGUE editor and Italy’s style pope, founded this place almost 20 years ago. It is a beautifully designed concept store that hosts a great selection of designer fashion, furniture, design objects, music and books. Hidden away from Milan’s tourist area with its flashy designer-temples, 10 Corso Como has established as one of Europe’s most influential TREND BOUTIQUES. Alaia, Louboutin, Marni, Balenciaga…of course all these big names come with a hefty price tag! Luckily, the store now decided to cooperate with Net-a-Porter’s online-outlet “The Outnet” to sell one-of-a-kind pieces from past collections. Good for us!

Here are some of my favorites:

Trip to Antwerp

Trip to Antwerp

When we took a trip to Antwerp a couple of weeks ago it felt like shopping heaven! The hometown of Dries van Noten and Martin Margiela not only hosts the famous ModeMuseum but also has a quite unique selection of small boutiques, avantgarde designer stores and vintage shops. Curious;-)?
