Pantone color of the year 2013: Emerald green!!

EMERALD.Punctual as always the U.S. company Pantone has elected the color of the year 2013.. and this time the choice fell right on my favorite color,the emerald green!
Right now the best we can do to get into this mood is to be inspired by some of the most beautiful images found on the web.
So get ready to dye green your worlds, from make-up to wardrobe,through design for spaces up to arrive
accessories for your puppy or the clerk for the study (Yes I did!) This year will be the color of hope and I couldn't be happier!

SMERALDO.Puntuale come sempre l'azienda statunitense Pantone ha eletto il colore dell'anno 2013...e questa volta la scelta è caduta proprio sul mio colore preferito,il verde smeraldo!
Adesso per entrare al meglio nel mood non ci resta che lasciarci ispirare da alcune delle immagini più belle trovate sul web.
Preparatevi quindi a tingere di verde i vostri mondi,dal make up al guardaroba,passando per il design per ambienti fino ad arrivare agli accessori per il vostro cucciolo o alla cancelleria per lo studio (si l'ho fatto!) quest'anno sarà del colore della speranza e io non potrei esserne più felice!

My wishlist of the week sales edition

My sale wishlist

SALE.Finally the time that every self-respecting fashionista waiting with great trepidation has come,the seasonal sale.
This year I decided to stake everything on online stores,some for lack of time due to the preparation of various exams and my daily schedule,a bit for lack of desire and patience in making  kilometric files elbowing to get that blue dress that I really like and that  I've seen point to that blonde girl which certainly will suit better than me.
 And let's face it,on internet you make the best business all year round let alone with the sales!!
So as every time I do shopping online I "fill" a list of the most interesting things found on the web,what are the pieces that you'll buy first without even thinking?And what's in your sales wishlist?Tell me...

SALDI. Finalmente è arrivato il momento che ogni fashionista che si rispetti aspetta con tanta trepidazione,i saldi di fine stagione.
Quest'anno ho deciso di puntare tutto sui negozi online,un pò per mancanza di tempo dovuta alla preparazione di esami vari e ai miei impegni giornalieri,un pò per mancanza di voglia e pazienza nel fare file chilometriche, sgomitare per accaparrarmi quel vestito blu che mi piace tanto e che ho visto adocchiare a quella ragazza bionda alla quale di sicuro starà meglio che a me. E poi diciamola tutta,su internet si fanno i migliori affari tutto l'anno,figuriamoci con i saldi!!
Così come ogni volta che mi do allo shopping online ho "compilato" una lista delle cose più interessanti trovate sul web,quali sono i pezzzi che comprereste per primi senza nemmeno pensarci?E cosa c'è nella vostre wishlist dei saldi?Raccontate...

The coat

daily post-4_800x404

THE COAT. Finally, after I do not even know how long I'm able to post an outfit  on the blog.It's strange pose in front of the camera after all this time,I felt so clumsy as if it was the first time...I decided to wear a  Forever21coat bought last year and never wore,one of those items that either you love them or hate them (I love it) matched with a cream dress and brown boots.A look a little unusual for me but I have to say that I don't mind.

THE COAT. Finalmente,dopo non so neanche io quanto tempo torno a postare un outfit sul blog.Fa strano posare davanti la macchina fotografica dopo tutto questo tempo,mi sentivo impacciatissima quasi come fosse la prima volta...ho deciso di indossare un cappotto di Forever21 comprato l'anno scorso e mai indossato,uno di quei capi che o li si ama o li si odia (io lo adoro) abbinato a un vestitino color crema e a degli stivali marroni.Un look un pò insolito per me ma devo dire che non mi è dispiaciuto.
