L'intramontabile trench

All wear it, but few know the origins and history of its birth. Who I'm talking about?
The trench! Who does not have a trench raise the hand and be ashamed at least a little ;)
The trench coat was born in 1901 on the battlefields to live on the catwalk and become a must-have in the wardrobe for men and women. Before we wore only between one season and the other, it has now become the base item to hang out with, without any other.
To make it famous in the female closet is the fascinating Greta Garbo in the film Destino, in 1928, becoming a must-have for any woman with style.
It was worn in fact, on the big screen and not only, by many stars like Brigitte Bardot, Marilyn Monroe and Katherine Hepburn.
A passe par tout item for the day and the evening, depending on how you wear it: an elegant suit, a trousers, a skirt -better a pencil-, but also an evening dress.
For my afternoon formal, but not too much, I decided to combine it with a pair of blue pants with a white and blue striped shirt, a colorful scarf and red geranium shoes in contrast. What do you think?

Spring time

"A day without laughter is a day wasted" so said Sir Charlie Chaplin.
Give me some tulips and I will be the happiest and smiling person in the world, I might add.
Did you know that tulips represent true love and for a declaration of love should give a bouquet of red tulips (perhaps with a Luca Barra jewel).
Although many are convinced that the flower that symbolizes love is the rose that is not entirely true: the true symbol of perfect love, honest one, eternal, selfless, and I would add also rare, is the tulip, at least according to what that the ancient legends and popular literature passed us.
The name "tulip" comes from turkish "tullband" headdress, turban, probably because of the characteristic of this lovely flower.
According to an ancient Persian legend, the oldest of those who see the tulip as the protagonist, this was born from the drops of blood of a young boy who committed suicide following a terrible disappointment in love. Even in the famous collection of fairy tales "The Arabian Nights" the tulip is associated with love: in fact, according to the accounts, the sultan dropped a red tulip at the foot of one of the women of the harem to show them what was the chosen .
It was later in the sixteenth century that this beautiful flower gained great popularity in Turkey, during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent Ottoman sultanate, from whose court were brought first to Vienna, then in Holland and England, and finally in the arms of your princess for cheer and perfuming her spring days, dreaming about a #fugaromantica in Amalfi Coast.
What has the romantic getaway? Got to do and how, as we entered a few days in the season of love and Luca Barra knows how to make us dream!
 The jewelery brand Luca Barra, in fact, held a competition titled #fugaromantica, which will award 10 pairs with a fantastic prize.
Want to know which? Try to guess!
Yes, lucky couples will win a weekend for two nights in the beautiful and romantic Amalfi! To enter the competition you need to send, via the website, a photo where you wear your Luca Barra jewelry, following all the directions here.
I try and you?

Arredare casa? Si, ma con Livingo!

It happens that in spring I want to renovate the house, every year the same story.
The seasons change, nature is renewed and I would change the entire interior of the house.
Mad? Maybe. But I think it is due to the fact that there is no only one style to like. So either buy a house in Marrakech in Arabic style with lots of colorful mosaics and lanterns, a white and blue house at the sea where shells and fishes are the main protagonist, a house in Kenya in African style with thatched, wooden statuettes and spotted carpets, and an estate in Tuscany in Provencal style with huge pots full of sunflowers, or, since I am not the daughter of the Sultan of Brunei, I have to "make do" to find the right style for my humble home and furnish it according to the diagrams.
But that effort to choose the right style, I would like them all (not together of course)!
Fortunately, a few days ago, I found Livingo.
Who is Livingo? A portal for online purchase of furniture; a great help, thanks to the categorization, to search for furniture, home accessories, utensils, linens and garden tools.
On Livingo I found many interesting products, able to meet every need. Find a product has never been easier.

Dolce&Gabbana inspired

A frame typically fantasy and a magical atmosphere. A sort of enchanted forest, where peace reigns and unspoiled nature is the host. Where squirrels wake up from long hibernation and run to the fountain to drink and bunnies playing happily in the meadows.
Beyond the hill, hidden by vineyards and orchards, the house of the grandmother.
A little girl, Bella (just sleeping) in the Woods, aka Snow White, akaLittle Red Riding Hood, aka Bella Cullen (for her pale complexion, the sun shines its light), walk and dance in her romantic dress inspired by the beloved Sicily designers, Dolce & Gabbana.
A tribute to spring and to the designers of the heart, the protagonists of all my dreams.

Marzo, i tulipani e il mio DW

The morning of March and the fresh tulips. The breakfast in a quiet corner of the city that reminds me so much the sunny Tuscan hills, with their expanses of sunflowers and old farmhouses transformed into estates. The smell of coffee and freshly baked croissants that blends with that of flowers just bought.
The silence and a moment of peace found in that concert of questions and emotions, positive and negative.
The passing time, always too fast or too slowly, but never as we want. I feel it, it's scanning the beats of a new season. A renewed spring, slowly, it's renewing me.

About time and scanned minutes, I remind you that until March 15 you can use the discount code thefashionprincess for the purchase of your favorite Daniel Wellington!
