Be careful! Even the nicest trousers won’t look good with the wrong pair of shoes!

Hello, I want to share with you what happened to me today. This morning, as almost every morning, I woke up at 6:30 to go to the gym.  Usually I prepare my clothes the night before, but I was really tired yesterday… so I left it for this morning, big mistake! Still sleepy and with […]

Carla, advice from an Image Consultant

Hi there! Today I want to share with you an interview I had for the bolivian magazine “M de Mujer” during my last trip to Bolivia. I go to Bolivia to work as an Image Consultant once a year, and it makes me really happy to see the response and interest of so many women […]

What inspires me – Nails & Co

This week: nails! As you may already know, marsala is the color we are going to see the most in 2015, but if you don’t like strong colors you have many other options. Nude is beautiful and you can choose it from many shades, and white looks great in the summer. Remember that your hands, […]

What inspires me – this week: “textures & layering”

Hello!  Today I would like to share with you some looks which, in some way, inspire me. They are not always my style, even more; usually the outfits are completely different from the outfits I usually wear… sometimes because they are not my style at all and others because the outfits are not flattering for […]

My daily looks – the jacket

We have been having great weather here in Milan recently. To think that I normally never take my down filled jacket off in the month of January, even though it is lightweight, it slightly covers my legs. But this year I can dare to wear different jackets, including short jackets! As always, an Image consultant […]

My daily looks – Basic clothes and more

I didn’t know what to wear yesterday; it happens to most women almost every day. When I am in a crisis I choose to wear basic clothes, I know that once I put them on, the rest of the look will come together very easily.   I wore my favorite black trousers and a pink […]

Some basic clothes can be worn in any style
