The importance of comfort

SNEAKERS. I usually don't wear sneakers but last weekend, after a really busy week I just wanted to flutter around free from the burden of heels and wedges dipped in total comfort. I decided to opt for a denim look that I brightened with a red coat. Actually I thought the coat was a little too much, when we took these pictures there was a lot of sun but just at the climax a strong and super cold wind got up and this made ​​me glad I made ​​this choice. Well on the other hand we are in March, I hope that spring run over us soon. Have a nice day folks!

SNEAKERS. Non sono solita indossare scarpe sportive ma lo scorso week end, dopo una settimana davvero impegnativa avevo solo voglia di svolazzare libera dal peso di tacchi e zeppe immersa nella totale comodità. Ho deciso di optare per un denim look che ho ravvivato con un cappottino rosso. A dire il vero pensavo che il cappotto fosse un pò troppo, quando abbiamo scattato queste foto c'era molto sole ma proprio sul più bello si è alzato un vento fortissimo e super gelido che mi ha resa felice di aver fatto questa scelta...beh siamo Marzo infondo, spero che la primavera ci travolga presto. Buona giornata!

Iwas wear:
coat FOREVER21
jeans and shoes OVS INDUSTRY
sunglasses FIRMOO

MFW fall 2013 street style

UNDER THE SNOW WITHOUT TIGHTS.Fashion week in Milan this time was talk more than for its fashion shows, for the number of daring that  decided to challenge the cold and the snow don't wearing tights. Bold, true, but a whole week (maybe even more) to examine the question: "tights yes,tights no" was a little boring. 
And yet street style in those days not offered only bare legs under the snow...nay! 
So here's a selection of the best looks (to me) who have been seen around in those days, my favorite is Gala Gonzalez, your?

SENZA CALZE SOTTO LA NEVE. La settimana della moda di Milano questa volta è stata chiacchierata più che per le sue sfilate, per il numero di temerarie che ha deciso di sfidare la neve il freddo non indossando collant, scelta audace vero ma un'intera settimana (forse anche più) a sviscerare la questione:"calze si calze no" è stata un pò pesante. Eppure lo street style in quei giorni non ha offerto solo gambe nude sotto la neve...anzi!
Dunque eccovi una selezione dei migliori look (secondo me) che si sono visti in giro in quei giorni,il mio preferito quello di Gala Gonzalez,il vostro?

Wildfire Supports YouTube One Channel

For brand marketers, YouTube, with more than 800 million users, is an incredibly powerful way to engage consumers through the magic of sight, sound, and motion. Wildfire is proud to work with YouTube as a Google Engagement Solutions Developer, helping brands tell their unique stories through video. Today we’re pleased to announce our support for the new YouTube One Channel design.


The new design introduces key changes that give marketers some great new features:

Designed for mobile

Mobile now makes up 25% of YouTube’s total views, and the YouTube iOS app has been downloaded more than 100 million times. Whether your consumers access your channel on their desktop, tablet or mobile device, they’ll see a beautifully rendered and perfectly scaled version of your brand channel page. This includes a new big cover image, which YouTube calls Channel Art.

Curated video library

“Shelves” of videos let you showcase and organize your channel’s content however you want. Create and edit “Sections” of content, so you can group your videos by most recent, most popular, or by function, such as product demos or customer support videos.

A customized welcome

You’ll be able to customize your featured video to subscribers vs non-subscribers to your channel. Subscribers get a view that helps them discover what’s new and what to watch next on your channel. For unsubscribed viewers, you can now publish a new channel trailer, which lets you highlight your channel’s value and encourage subscribing.

Guide integration with channels

The Guide is now integrated into channel pages. This means that your full channel (not just the Feed) will appear whenever a subscriber clicks on your channel in their Guide.

When will the changes take effect?

Through May 15, you’ll have the opportunity to switch your channel over to the new design. On May 15, if you have not published a custom-built page, with what YouTube refers to as “gadgets”, you will be automatically switched over. If you have built a custom page, then you’ll have till June 19 to re-build your page to fit the new One Channel specifications. But if you’ve built your custom page with Wildfire, don’t worry! Our pages were built from day one to conform to the One Channel specifications, so they’ll render perfectly in the new format.

The One Channel update is a great step forward for brands to create more customized and tailored experiences for their viewers. At Wildfire, we’re excited to bring our expertise in creating custom social pages to help brands who want to build even further engagement with their YouTube audience, such as through video contests, live streaming or built-in social sharing functionality.

Contact us if you want to learn more about how we can help save you time and money building viral and interactive experiences on your YouTube One Channel page.

Fashion weeks Highlights fall 2013 part 1 New York London

MY FAVOURITES.Like every season here we are at the end of fashion weeks to sum up the upcoming season. Today I show you my three favorite shows from the catwalks of New York and London.

New York-My first choice couldn't not be Rebecca Minkoff, I loved every outfit that came out on the catwalk...literally fantastic.
Diesel Black Gold presents a collection which relies entirely on the two colors  for excellence by alternating black and white total looks, the theme of the show is "American Biker" that explains all this riot of leather and not biker jackets, a treat for my eyes!And finally, the collection that surprised me most, Diane Von Fustemberg a '60s allure which mix animal prints and metallic fabrics...I pretty much love the blue maxi dress, a retrò glam collection that left me really breathless.

London-I only say one thing: Burberry! I know it's always one of my favorites, but I can't do really anything it is always the top of the London Fashion Week, also here animal prints on skirts and coats, hearts printed on the  bags and on the now well iconic trench coat.
Just let me say that the Topshop Unique fashion show was a real stroke of genius 2.0, I followed live on you tube and I'm madly in love with the bright colors of the vinyl skirts, the large sweaters and the pairings of  sequins-and hopefully-eco fur...
Also very nice the Paul smith collection, with his men's inspired pants (divine) suede shirt and silky blouse with velied sleeves the whole thing enlivened by a palette of colors ranging from the light to electric blue and the bright red passing through purple and burgundy...more than a collection a masterpiece of contemporary art!

But now I leave you to the pictures and I invite you for the second part of the post with the best from the catwalks of Milan and Paris...

MY FAVOURITES. Come ogni stagione eccoci qui alla fine delle fashion weeks a tirare le somme della stagione che verrà. Oggi vi mostro le mie tre sfilate preferite dalle passerelle di New York e Londra.

New York- La mia prima scelta non poteva che essere Rebecca Minkoff, ho adorato ogni capo uscito in passerella letteralmente,perfettamente in linea con i miei gusti e con il mio stile...fantastica.
Diesel black Gold presenta una collezione che punta tutto sui due colori non colori per eccellenza alternando total look neri e bianchi, il tema della sfilata "American Biker" ecco spiegato tutto quel tripudio di giacche da motociclista in pelle e non,una delizia per i miei occhi!
E infine la collezione che più mi ha sorpresa, quella di Diane Von Fustemberg, capi dall'allure anni '60, fantasie animalier e tessuti metallizzati...mi sono praticamente innamorata del maxi abito blu, una collezione retrò glam che mi ha lasciata davvero senza fiato.

Londra-Vi dico solo una cosa: Burberry!Lo so è sempre tra i miei preferiti, ma non posso farci davvero nulla è sempre il top della fashion week londinese, anche qui fantasie animalier su gonne e cappotti, cuoricini che si stampano su borse e sugli ormai iconici trench.
Lasciatemi dire che la sfilata di Topshop Unique è stata una vera e propria genialata 2.0, io l'ho seguita in diretta su you tube e mi sono perdutamente innamorata di quelle gonne viniliche dai toni accesi e sgargianti degli ampi maglioni e dell'abbinamento paillettes e-si spera-eco pellicce...
Molto bella anche la collezione di Paul Smith con i suoi pantaloni dal taglio maschile (divini) maglie in camoscio e bluse in seta con maniche velate il tutto ravvivato da una palette di colori che va dal celeste al blu elettrico e dal rosso acceso passando per il viola fino ad arrivare alburgundy...più che una collezione un capolavoro d'arte contemporanea!

Adesso però vi lascio alle immagini e vi do appuntamento per la seconda parte del post con il meglio dalle passerelle di Milano e Parigi....
