This summer was all about beautiful panoramas, selfies and just a pinch of sport. Nothing better than the new, addicting must-have GoPro camera to picture the best moments. The GoPro has just become the ultimate new gadget everyone wants to have, and I must say, it is well worth buying. I am usually not a big fan of underwater or mini cameras because I always get the feeling that I would never be using anything except my phone to take pictures. I was surprised by how much I got addicted to this cute little camera. If anything, it takes awesome pictures, it is so small it can easily fit in the palm of your hand, it has a wifi that connects and downloads the pictures/videos you have just taken onto your cell phone, it is indestructible no matter what (which for a clumsy person like me, it is more than useful), it can go underwater, and, last but definitely not least, it shoots epic selfies. Here are some of my favorite summer GoPro shots from Sardinia, Cortina, London and Panarea.
A quick throwback to the beginning of summer when I was in London for the CSM short course. Actually, the outfit I was wearing was inspired by the Rude Boy exhibition I have wrote about in my previous post. London’s vibe made me want to suit up and dress down mixing sneakers and a tailored jacket. What can I say… I am starting to get a little nostalgic with my early summer days. Who else is craving for an endless summer?
I was wearing: Topshop jacket, Adidas sneakers, Jbrand jeans, Uniqlo shirt, Goyard bag, Miu Miu sunglasses and Dior tribal earrings.
Ever since the course at CSM and the visit to this amazing photography exhibition “The Return of the Rudeboy” by Dean Chalkley at Somerset house, I have started to be more and more interested in menswear fashion and style. I have always seen men dressed amazingly during mfw, but I honestly never paid that much attention to them. I was totally wrong. Taking inspiration from menswear for outfits has just become my favorite thing. Blazers, suits, shirts, shoes, I just love everything, but mostly I love the way in which, the Rudeboy exhibition juxtaposed classic and elegant elements to street ones. Take look at a couple of pictures I took of the exhibition! -ℳ
My week studying at Central St. Martins is now over and it has been one of the best fashion learning experiences of my life. The whole of last week I have been attending the Fashion Styling course at the Granary square building in London where I have been busy making a fashion editorial with a group of five other girls. Initially it was quite hard to come up with outfits and ideas that we all liked, however in the end we worked as a team and had the best result!! I tried to do my best with my modeling…. haha, but anyway overall I am very proud of our first fashion editorial! Our theme was “Rude Girl/ Rude Boy”, which we renamed “Mandemulus”. Here are a couple of photos of my experience:

My day in Bologna: rain, dentist and shopping. The camo outfit definitely contributed to the whole idea of going to ‘war’, and, to a certain extent it was true. In was one very full day: from 9 am to 5pm, my mother and I were in Bologna on a mother-daughter errand day.We roamed around the center of Bologna until after lunch, checking out our favorite shop: Ratti, and some other cute places. Then, right after lunch, we went to the usual monthly dentist appointment and after that, we were back in Rome. Despite the weather we had fun: both ready to face the rain with our camo green outfits. Camouflage is one print that can have many effects, make you look sporty, comfy and confident at the same time.

My mom was wearing: Valentino shoes, Goyard bag, Armani jacket
After having been locked up studying in my room for about two weeks, it is finally time for my exams to be over. I think that the past two weeks have been amongst the longest two weeks of my life. As soon as I was free, my friends and I were finally able to visit the brand new Andy Warhol exhibition here in Rome at Palazzo Cipolla, the name of the place is ironically uninviting, subject of a few jokes on my side…. Anyway, jokes aside, the Warhol exhibition was spectacular, the juxtaposition of colors, shapes and silhouettes mind-blowing and the realization that most of what we love about art today is inspired by Warhol and his aesthetic enlightening. Warhol was the first one to enjoy taking selflies, even before the word ‘selfie’ was coined, he was inspired by fashion, personal fears, God, death, consumerism and celebrities, and ultimately became the king of Pop and contemporary art. Here are a couple of pictures I was sneakily able to take, clearly not respecting the “you cannot take pictures” warning. The paintings, prints and photographs were just too beautiful, I absolutely could not resist taking a couple of shots.
It is never an easy task to find the perfect bikini: they are either too tight, too small, too big or too normal. Every body is different, and a bikini not only has the duty to be sexy enough, but also has the absolute obligation to improve and enhance your figure in some way. Well, when you finally find the perfect one, it’s the best feeling in the world. You officially feel ready for the best season of all! This year I was lucky enough to find a new swimwear line that proved to be just right for me: I was able to find innovative shapes, fun prints and bright colors. Be sure to have a look at Amani Swimwear, you might just be as lucky as I was and find your new summer’s bikini. Most pictures taken from @AmaniSwimwear instagram page.
It was long since I’ve last worn my Cole Haan neon yellow soled shoes, actually I think I’ve last worn these in one of the first outfit posts I have ever published on The Style Saviour, which is pretty long ago if you think about it. I have never realized two years have now passed. Two years in which I have shared my experiences, outfits, personal tastes and interests with you guys. Two years in which I have grown and learnt so much, not only about fashion and blogging, but also about myself and my interests. If I was ever able to do so is thanks to my family, friends, and thanks to all of you guys, who stopped by this blog and found it interesting: a blog about a 16 year old girl in love with fashion and life. I think this outfit reflects my overall personality: causal but careful and attentive to details. This was from last Sunday: a day spent in relax (and a little bit of studying) with my family and friends. The perfect day: the sun, my loved ones and a comfortable outfit.
Shoes: Cole Haan
Sunglasses: Miu Miu
Earring: Delfina Delettrez
This is just what I call the perfect break from an overly stressful week. And this post is just the kind of post that comes an overly-crowded mind, right out of an intense Biology test this afternoon- so excuse me if I might sound a little confused at times. Well, right out of school, (obviously changing in the car), I went to a really nice event at the Maxxi Museum for a competition held for Micol Fontana’s 100th year anniversary. If you guys don’t know who the Fontana sisters are, i’ll sum it up for you in four nice words: the best of the best. They essentially made Italian fashion and Italian craftsmanship what it is– they were renowned world-wide in the 1900s. This competition organized by the Micol Fontana organization gave the opportunity to young fashion students to create their designs: dresses, shoes, bags and jewels, inspired by the Fontana fashion and Italian Cinema, having the chance to win an internship/stage at Bulgari, Max Mara, Fendi or Salvatore Ferragamo. Not bad at all!! It’s just great how such prominent fashion companies are leaving some space to young adults in the midst of the huge and competitive world that is fashion nowadays. Apart from all of those wonderful and amazing things, the best part of it all was that in the end, Micol, one of the Fontana sisters (she is 100yrs old) came for a short while and we were all able to see face-to-face this iconic woman, a woman who literally changed the fashion world.
here are a couple of blurry pictures… not of the best but just to give an idea
Sneek peek into the winner styles:
We’re now past mid-May, and it’s more than time to say that my summer countdown has officially begun. That being said, I could not live through the next three months without the perfect pair of sunglasses. For this summer, I favor colors and innovative shapes to make a statement. I think you could wear the simplest outfit in the world, but with a pair of these babes down here you just won’t go unnoticed. So, when the sun is up, move your bodyyy and put your shades on.
Italia Independent I- thin metal sunglasses
