Next Obsession : Melie Bianco

I’ve got the inspiration for this post from my sister, Claudia, she’s vegan and so she dosen’t use any leather on shoes bags or else, so if she need a bag or shoes (that aren’t Vans or Converse) she must start a neverending hunt for a faux leather but good quality and good looking bag or heels. I don’t eat meat and I’ ve nerver and I’ll never use or buy any kind of fur, but I’ve leather shoes or bags, since I’m very very obsessed with handbags it’s like a drug, if I spot the perfect Gucci or Chanel I gotta have it. I want to try to be a good person to animals and be stylish too. There’re so many faux-leather bags and products, most of them looks 100% fake or plastic ( and smells bad..) but I’ve found few years ago Melie Bianco bags, they’re so well made , no funny smells , great texture and high quality , great prices and totally vegan!! I’ve the gold version of the very fanous “Laguna” hobo, LC had the white version in a very old episode of Laguna Beach ( I miss that show!!) , I felt in love in a second with that bag and a friend bought it for me in the USA.I still use it such a versatile bag and nobody here has it!!

The Melie Bianco bags are so cool and stylish , of course they’re unavailable here but I can easly buy them from Silvia Shop ; that store has the best price ever , a huge selection and amazing customer service. For next fall I’m gonna have some Melie Bianco from Silvia I want to have my boho style but with a different vibe, I’m not going to wear always the same “it” bags, so boring, I want something different that will stand out in vibrant colors and be good to furry friends. My choices are the teal fringed tote, love teal it’s a great alternative to black or brown and will match any outfits the color it’s very rich and will stand out with total black looks or simply jeans+tee, and the fringes are one of my obsessions, fringes everywhere please so rock n roll!! The Mustard Yellow Duffle, it’s such a great everyday bag, the color again is rich and warm and with browns will be so perfect, love the shape and the woven it would be amazing with greens or rust accessories or opaque tights..I’m ready for fall!! The last is a classic fringed clutch (convertible to shoulder bag) so hot and pretty, great for nights out or just for shopping with friends. I’ll get in black, but it’s available at Silvia in other colors too..tempted??

So many gorgeous bags and a fab price , a new obsession is on!!

TTT : TenThings Ten Tag

My dear friend Kerri of tenthings tagged me in another super cute tag, Thank you Kerri !! You' should read her tag it's very sweet and cool such an amazing girl!! The rule is easy, I must write 10 interesting things about me and then tag 10 blogs ..ok you maybe know a lot about me and my crazy family but there're so many mad things about us!!

I wear glasses. I used to hate so much them at school, I was the "popular duo" with my best friend and wear glasses was very uncool. I must wear them to read, watching tv or pc..well I still hate them but I've tried contacts and it was the worst experience of my life!

I'm allergic to strawberries but I love them very much so if I eat too many I got a red rush around my mouth and my toongue it looks very bad but strawberries are too good for me.

The only grandmother I still have in life is my father "first mother" but I don't talk to her since probably 1995, it's a long and sad story she'd like the biological mother of my dad but she left him when he was 1 .. she never let us call her Nonna (grandmother in Italian) but with her name..I don't hate her I just don't feel her like my other grandparents that were amazing.

I used to have 3 piercing on my tongue then I'd to remove them when I come back to Italy because in this stupid and "too catholic" country you can find a job or just live in your own way if you're a little bit different.

I got kicked out with my friends from my first yoga class because we were laughing like mad for everything..we're really dumb!! then I've tried yoga alone and it's was soo cool and relaxing!

I'm scared of stupid things like wind ( I hate it..) tomatoes , blood, stairs, clowns, insects (all of them), frogs , thunders, gnomes .. but I'd love to jump off a plane or an high cliff , swim with sharks or to kiss a tiger on the nose!

I'm very good to play cards or gamble games. Don't know why but I'm very lucky, I always win at poker or blackjack I've won $500 at Bahamas Casino in Paradise Island few years ago, I went there with $100 and I left with $500 ; but I can't play chess, pool or bowling I'm a real mess!!

I'm always in late, I live in late I can't help it. If I woke up 2 hours before I can't be in time, it's impossible I say that I "enter" in another world like Alice in Wonderland and I get lost for hours..I'm in late now of course :)))

I adore to watch kids movie, I think that I've watched all the disney, dreamworks etc animation movies. I still love ET and the Goonies (one of the best movie ever!!) , Finding Nemo, Peter Pan , Alice in wonderland, Madasacscar, Wall-e , Surf-up etc. I prefer the movie with animals than the ones with a princess , animals are too funny!!

In my life I’ve done so many jobs and many weird ones. I’ve worked for only 4 hours at Mc Donald’s (they’re totally mad…) in a strip club as cashier, in disco always as cashier, in a piercings studio, pubs, sales assistant in a Carnaby St store, PR for a night club here, so many different jobs, the only thing that I hate is when I have to wear uniforms (no tnx!) and stupid rules and too loud horrible music all day long .

Next monday I’ll be on vacation for a month , I’ll drive to south of Italy to my parent’s house and I’ll try to relax as much as I can , swim, eat good food (no plastic food..) , I won’t have an internet connection but I’ll do my best to keep in touch. Since last week internet is forbidden in my office too , it’s a shame and it’s impossible to spend 8 hours since we’ve nothing to do..so I can’t write or read blogs ; I’ve no time left when I’m home I’ve always 400000 things to do before leaving, I hope that in few weeks things will get better. 2 last things..while I’ll be on vacation it would be great to have some guest posts, so if you’re interested let me know , I would like to keep my blog ALIVE!! I’m going to bring Brilli , my cat, with me , does anybody have good tips to relax Brilli while I’m driving, it will take 7-8 hours from Milan to Sperlonga and I’m afraid that Brilli won’t feel good, I’d love to make her comfortable during the trip and don’t stress her too much TIA. Very last thing , I need , (well don’t need!) an oversized clutch, I’d love to find a vintage ones..if you spot nice one let me know!! (white –yellow – tan..no red or black!)

Woodstock 1969


40 years ago from Friday the 15th to Sunday the 17th , rock music legends played at the very first live festival, the one and only that is still a myth for us that are too young to remember and an indelible memory for the guys of 1969. A festival that celebrated music & peace, some values that we still belive in and try to reach the Peace everywhere. As I said many times before I know that I was born in the wrong decade and country, my mum the same, in 1969 she escaped from home with some hippie friends (yes my mum was an hippie..or like they used to say in Italy a freak!!) to attend Woodstock, she loved and still love Janis a real icon for her, they couldn't reach USA , they just got stopped near Rome but they had a kinda little Woodstock playing guitars & singing!! Now summer festivals are very popular and everywhere but we all need to thank the '69 generation for the freedom and the music that we have now..Peace & Love at Woodstock!!

It'd be a dream to be at Woodstock again and see Janis, Jimi , my fav band Jefferson Airplane live, dancing and singing with all the guys beeing happy & free..what a wonderful experience!!


Two Woodstock inspired outfits, the first is very old school , fringes, bell bottom jeans and flats, the second is more modern festival, wellies short and blouse, I'd love to wear both of course!!

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the festival , Ang Lee has directed the upcoming movie Taking Woodstock , a movie based on the book "Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, Concert, and a Life" by Elliot Tiber the "father" of Woodstock. I really can't wait to watch the movie, Ang Lee is an amazing director and the cast is great, I's sure it'll be a very beautiful movie and a great sountrack.
