Window-Shopping in Rome: Via Del Babuino

After the excess of british pop yesterday, I decided it was time for a real trendy treat, that is it was time for shopping. I bought a lovely Givenchy Nightingale bag (purchase that inspired my previous post here) then I had an aperitivo with my husband at the beutiful dehor of Hotel De Russie. When we went out strolling through Via del Babuino, I took these pics for some relaxing window-shopping here.

YSL Tribute

YSL will stay a strong inspiration for me forever, a kind of statement of ever lasting "très chic" though still easy and modern. From unforgettable Yves, through Tom Ford to Stefano Pilati, the YSL brand and style have moved through the years and the tendencies, keeping a strongly distinctive trait.
I chose these pieces that can be mixed together, depending on the mood and on what we want to do, black & white and a touch of purple...just lovely...

Jo No Fui: Easy Chic for Spring 2011

Jo No Fui is definitely one of my favourite brands. I love the effortlessly chic mood you feel in, whenever wearing one of this lovely Spring pieces. The distinctive sign of the collection is the combination of nude hues with pastels and the sharp but still soft cut of the shapes. Little dresses are paired with short coats and are the ultimately sexy-chic key to get into this Spring... just perfect to be worn with high heeled pumps and a light tan...

N°21: Alessandro Dell'Acqua New Hit

Last Summer I was so impressed by watching the new collection by Alessandro Dell'Acqua for Fall'10.
I immediately fell desperately in love with the perfect shape of the dresses, the mix of nude with brigth bold colours, and the use of the lace.  The result was a kind of bon-ton young lady, looking sexy but still classy and chic. 
N° 21 Spring '11 collection is a hit for me again, with a lot of white, red and blue mixes and the lovely, perfect small dresses that will make us ready for an eve out, just straight from the office. We definitely need at least one piece by N° 21...
