NUDE Attitude

If there is a product that can not miss in the beauty case, especially during this spring summer 2015, that is the nude lipstick: the must of the beauty world!
Selected by people who do not want to look overly make up, nude lipsticks are conquering all, even the lovers of heavy make up on the eyes, to bring out the look by putting seemingly shadowed lips.
It looks like a lipstick easy, but it has a handbook that should be respected otherwise whiteout is guaranteed!
Even for the nude, as I have said to the perfect pink lipstick here, to choose "the right one" is not so simple as eating a candy, but with the right advice, I'm sure you'll find the perfect nude!
If you are blonde and have pale skin, the perfect nude lipstick is a very light pink, with cool undertone, so as to be more natural and in harmony with the colors of your face.
If you are brunettes play with textures. Sported full lips and smooth choosing a nude covering lipstick with the warm undertone.
If you are red, orange and warm shades are perfect for you.
Still undecided or run in perfumery?

Daniela D'Amico Fluffy tee

Although I'm not a crop top lover, when I saw the new collection of t-shirts for spring/summer 2015 signed by Daniela D'Amico, I immediately made an exception! Maybe for the colored inserts in faux fur on the sleeves, either for prints inspired by the ancient mosaics and traditional fruits of Sicily, and the particularity of Fluffy Tee in itself but, I was immediately impressed. So passed the initial panic from "oh my God I have the umbilicus outside", I immediately thought to match it to a must of this season, the high waist pants, which highlight the waist and create an effect in my opinion, very "stylish". In addition the risk umlicus exposed, with attached "teen effect", is averted from its high-waisted pants that make the look immediately "ladylike". Perfect this Giorgio Armani that invokes the same colors of the print Fluffy tee: brown, gray and bronze. Is not it?
So, if you want to wear again crop top (they were a trend already last summer), remember these two imperatives: high waist and crop top!

Regina di Fiori

Among the trends of this spring/summer 2015 can not miss it: the maxi dress.
Romantic, sexy or essential, the dress-must is down to the feet.
Perfect for a walk through the narrow streets of the seaside village but also for a citizen vernissage, fresh and essential to free from the constraints of a very hot summer but perfect for a dinner by candlelight: the maxi dress is the passepartout item of the season, decline day and night simply changing the accessories.
One more idea? The flowers crown, a must have among the accessories of the season (I spoke here), for a romantic look for real Queens of Flowers!

Vacanze Romane

Close your eyes and go back in time, in 1950 to be exact, when in Rome celebrated the Dolce Vita. That Rome where, through the streets of Corso, we turned only with the vespa without meters and all traffic of today. When Italy was really the Bel Paese and Roman Holiday was not only the title of the famous film with the Hepburn, but a dream shared by the whole world. A city rich in history and charm, which has enchanted millions and millions of people. In my opinion, the Italian pride.
And then its icons. Beautiful, indeed very beautiful. As only the divas of the 50s were able to be: charm and elegance in a pure state, that current superstar even if they are dreaming.
The years of the trench, the midi skirts, the scarf in the hair and big glasses for true divas. Because they were so, always perfectly clean even when they went to fill wicker baskets of their favorite flowers, losing in the sweet notes of the famous song of Matia Bazar, Vacanze Romane, among roses, tulips, orchids and other wonderful species, and then leave on the red vespa with the fluttering scarf and baskets full of flowers ready to greet His Majesty, the Colosseum.
Roma bella tu, le muse tue
Asfalto lucido, "Arrivederci Roma"...

Last weekend pushed by an uncontrollable desire to sea and relaxing, accomplices mild temperatures and bright sun, I decided to spend a few days in the "pearl of Liguria": Portofino.
Needless to tell you how much I love this fascinating place, but there's one thing you do not know... Many years ago, on the occasion of a holiday, this is where I fell in love with my brand of the heart (yes ok, one of many). Want to know which? It's composed of 2 names, starts with L and ends with N...
Have you recognized?
It's Louis Vuitton! Already at the time (I was just a little girl) I had refined tastes ;)
But back to my weekend I was so happy and totally relaxed I did not want to go back home!
Nothing relaxes the senses more than the sea, only to watch it regenerates me. I entrust all my thoughts, my anxieties, my doubts and it returns me a "clean" Desy, free and light as a butterfly.
So in those days no thoughts, no work, no study, nothing. Only the wonder and beauty of the sea and nature, some pictures (Instagram @desireedaloia), an inner peace and a new-found energy to retake life until next weekend in the paradise of senses.

Barbie va al supermercato

A little Barbie, a little doll and maybe even a little strawberry. Thus began the week, in pink, with the scent of fresh flowers and yogurt with berries and grains. With another Monday but with the smile and the eyes still full of sea, thinking about the weekend just ended in the beloved Portofino (you can see the photos on my Instagram profile @desireedaloia).
Barbie in a total pink look (the brunette), because there is no Barbie without pink and there is no pink without Barbie. A Barbie (actually two) that goes to the supermarket, but not just any. Barbies chic do not go neither to the Coop, sorry Luciana (Littizzetto), and even to the Esseluga. No, they do snob and only go into supermarkets IN, where there's people IN and products IN (read quality). They buy milk "Roberto Cavalli" and meat of the best butchers in London, "Burberry" so to speak. You know, the quality meat is the Anglo-Saxon (read as: the real cool boys are the English Dandy). And the bread? French course, a nice baguette "Vuitton" did not handle anyone. Not even the diet.

Cocorose Ballerinas

Spring brings with it, along with colorful jackets and pretty dresses, one of the most classic women shoes: the ballerina. Pretty, versatile, comfortable (?) and chic, for several years has established itself as a must-have ALMOST for all.
I say "almost" because the ballerinas, or you love it or you hate it. They are often accused of failure to femininity, but what is it? As it's true for many items and accessories, just know how to match and can be really very bon ton, especially if enriched with "precious" details as my Cocorose!
I admit, I hardly go down from the top of the heel 12, but sometimes I am forced to do it, especially if I wear a miniskirt.
As you will understand (I hope), I'm a lover of elegance ergo one that NOT approve the combination miniskirt (I speak of those mini mini) + heel 12. So those rare times when I decide to wear a skirt above the knee, the choice regarding the shoes, inevitably falls on the ballerinas and their elegance of yesteryear. The times of sobriety and simplicity, those of Audrey (Hepburn) to speak.
And you? Which school of thought you belong? Ballerinas yes or no? Vote! ;)

Polka dots mania

Polka dots mania
What is the most fun and cool print of the moment? Obviously the polka dots, the trend of this spring/summer 2015 and also of that of 2014, and perhaps, if I remember correctly, in 2012.
Raise your hand if, in the spring, not dusts off lines (yes, there are always too!) and polka dots. In short, we understand, is not a new trend own.
The polka dots infact comes and goes, and you might as well ride the wave, because, colorful and cheerful (I prefer the classic whites and blacks as you noted), in addition to bringing a wave of joy, always give bon ton and refinement other times.
Or you love them or hate them, there are no half measures. Small transmit the delicacy and subtlety of the '30s, large and colorful joy and lightheartedness of the 50s, then resumed by the extravagance of the 80s.
The choice is yours! One thing is certain, it will be a "spotted" spring-summer!

Frida Kahlo style

Frida Kahlo, Mexican painter and style woman. Disappeared 60 years ago, admired by Picasso and Neruda, Frida was distinguished for her maverick spirit and hers strong (as well as lively) personality.
Her style and her clothes were not chosen at random, as it might seem, but they were a way to assert her identity. With her hairstyles, always adorned with flowers, and her traditional clothing, anchored to hers origins, Frida is still a real style icon, who has inspired fashion designers and captured the imagination of many. Her colorful and feminine style mixed the "Mexicanism" with cosmopolitan comfort. Flowers, crochet handbags, lace bodices, shawls, embroidered shirts, medals, long skirts but especially colors, colors and colors.
The power of her image and her art, in fact, inspired the world of film and fashion, has been used and adapted to many different contexts and media, sparking a real Frida-mania.
Frida Kahlo in all ways and in all ages. I wonder what she would think about all this. She, after that mirror on the ceiling to look at the immobility due to a horrible accident, for years, and perhaps forever, has done nothing that portray her image in various ways, in different contexts, sometimes with a lot of irony , sometimes with so much pain.

BACI ROSA per tutti!

Powder, baby, fuchsia, candy, bois de rose, pink lipstick, delicate and discreet, is a stylish alternative to nude lipstick. Pink lips give an air of innocent sensuality and are perfect to counterbalance an intense eye makeup like smokey eyes.
Did you know that pink lipstick, unlike the red lipstick, gives all?! But all! Just choose the shades fit in your complexion and voila...more PINL KISSES for everyone!
The "rule" would indicate the basic light colors as the most appropriate for those who have a clear complexion, blue eyes and blond hair.
If you let yourself be seduced by the chestnut shades warm, fascinating as the bois de rose; for brunettes instead go-ahead to fuchsia lipsticks that will light up your evenings with a fresh feel.
1, 2, 3... Kiss :*

Ricchi si diventa, eleganti si nasce.

We always talk about elegance, of how a person is dressed and wearing clothes. Pointing a finger to reach a final judgment: is she elegant or not?
All women aspire to be elegant, buying thousands of clothes, shoes and bags but how many of them, even though they are well dressed, are elegant?
 Elegance is innate, not learned and do not buy, is inherent in the behavior; elegance is poise, discretion, charm, seduction. You can learn to be well dressed but you do not learn to be elegant.
True elegance begins, secretly, from inside and then leave with delicacy and grace.
What is elegance? An attitude. Elegance is not tied to a piece of clothing, much less a luxury handbag. You move in a certain way, you sit in a certain way, you speak in a certain way. The hands and face have an elegant attitude in the movements. The elegance has simply code difficult to explain.
Elegance is a gift, a natural gift. It born with the chosen and dies with her, accompanying her for life.

Volevo fare la (rock?)STAR

From when we cross the threshold of the kindergarten, all cute with pigtails, the apron and the backpack, how likely a child begins to understand something of this unknown life that will change 100 million times, we are bombarded, for years and years and years, from that awkward, boring and banal question: "What do you want to be?"
"But what do I know, let me play!" I think this is the true sentence that dwells in the tiny brain of a child of 5-6 years, hidden from the answer of what will probably be the job of the month, or period of the week.
When I was little I wanted to be a singer, as well as a Princess of course, then I changed my mind and I wanted to be an astronaut. Can you imagine someone like me to float in a spaceship? I do not!
For a time I also wanted to be a veterinarian, I have always loved animals (reptiles and insects excluded).
Going in elementary school came the mania of the dancer, I wanted to get to dance at La Scala in Milan, recurring dream for all girls who wear a pink tutu. And so, off to take classes in ballet and modern dance until almost 18 years.
Growing up obviously the ideas were not yet clear. For a time I wanted to become even dentist.
Then the streets were fortunately only 3: 1) stylist 2) doctor (most of all) 3) hostess. All I have to say very interrelated ;) Great Desi, you have clear ideas. Now I have already 25 years old, still do not know exactly what I want to do when I grow. Try to ask me!
What do you do when you grow Desi?
The answer is always the same: TRAVEL!
Yes travel, the only certainty that I have!
Perhaps, at this point, I should really become a hostess..
