Woman SS'12 - Burning Red

Main focus on Marc by Marc Jacobs Lucinda dress, sleeveless, with boat neck and waist belt. Its bright red and its flirtatious mood make it perfect for summer. Keep the look simple with nude accessories: Mulberry Daria boho bag, in leather with braided handle and metallic logo, and Salvatore Ferragamo Brise crossed sandals with a cute front bow. 
Focus sull'abito Lucinda di Marc by Marc Jacobs, smanicato con collo a barca e cintura in vita. Il rosso acceso e il carattere sbarazzino lo rendono perfetto per l'estate. Manteniamo il look semplice con accessori nude: la Mulberry Daria, in pelle con manico intrecciato e logo metallico, e i sandali Brise di Salvatore Ferragamo con l'iconico fiocco frontale.

Blogger of the Week - The Fashion Twice

Today we meet our Blogger of the Week:  Rossella, from The Fashion Twice 

Rossella, what do yo usually do, beyond your blog?
I'm a University student in Business Economics and I'm also communication and marketing supervisor in my family's chain of formal dress stores.

Why did you choose to name your blog "The Fashion Twice"?
Twice because that's how I see fashion. It has many facets, and every time has got two opposite points...for instance, we recently had two opposite trends at the same time: rock style, with studs and skulls, and bon-ton mood, with lace and bows.

What influenced and influences mostly your style?
My style is quite personal, in constant chancing and evolution. I take inspiration from what I see around me, street style, details I like, and then I wear that my way. I have to say, anyway, the thing influencing mostly my style daily mood (quite inconstant.. :D)

What keeps you updating your blog with such care and passion?
My enthusiasm comes from my followers! They give me the energy and the strength to propose new things everyday and to learn from my mistakes.Usually I'm not a steadfast person, so, writing everyday on my blog makes me feel really better!

What's your favourite comment you've read about your blog?
My fav comment came from another blogger, not italian, who told me that she liked my style, and found my blog very interesting and inspiring...but this is just one! I really love all comments left by readers that appreciate my work.  :)

Your latest purchase...
A pair of super-high shoes, in see-through pvc, with patent neon yellow toes and ankle strap. I bought them online, I'm still waiting the delivery but I already love them!

Your favourite item in your wardrobe
That's so easy: my leather jacket from Zara! I think I could start sleeping with it! Never apart!

Your look or wardrobe signature element
A rock attitude, so anything with studs or in leather. To me, this is what makes the difference.

Blogger of the Week - Modalicious

First af all, we welcome you to our blog, and we are glad to present a new section that will make us know a little better some of the most popular and nice fashion bloggers of the Web: Blogger of the week!
Every week will be dedicated to a new fashion blogger: on Tuesday we’ll post an interview where she will be talking about herself, her approach to fashion and her passions, while in thursday we’ll feature on this blog a selection of items or a complete outfit  from chosen by our blogger of the week. Clear enough?
Now, let’s start with...

Yes, because who’s now writing now is at the same time social media manager of and blogger of
Modalicious, a blog about fashion, new trends, gadget and design.
I am Violetta Lima, aka almostviola, and I live in Sicily, where I was born. I am a social media manager, as I said before, and I like fashion and design.
I’m not a fashion blogger in the usual and common way, I don’t post picture of my outfit and myself ‘cause I find it a little weird, but I love to write and talk about fashion. My favourite topic is new trends and gadgets: strange accessories and hi-tech gadget (glasses, headphones...) nowadays are part of our look.

I started my blog 4 years ago, and I called it Modalicious mixing together “moda” (the italian word for fashion) and delicious... cause fashion can be really fun, pleasant and playful!
I love my country, Italy and Sicily in particular, and its natural sense of fashion. In Italy glamour is in the air! So, my style is inspired by the bright colours and the great sunlight you can find in Sicily...just like in Dolce&Gabbana advertising shots and short movies!
My wardrobe essentials are: comfy jeans, basic shirts, plain but colourful t-shirts, Dr Martens (I have a mini-collection!) and my Longchamp Pliage.
My last purchase is a bi-colour clutch (fuchsia/purple) with studs and chain shoulder strap that I bought  from a young sicilian designer, Andrea Gangi, in his boutique in Catania,’s absolutely adorable!
My wishlist? Is pretty long...and one of the things on it is a Celine bag. Is it evident I’m a bagaholic? :)
I hope you’ll like my blog, anyway, you can find me also on facebook, tumblr and Polyvore...add and follow me, if you want!

See you on Thursday with my Shopping tips!


Prima di tutto, vi diamo il benvenuto sul nostro blog e siamo lieti di presentarvi una nuova rubrica all'interno d esso, grazie alla quale conosceremo un po' di più alcune delle più popolari e simpatiche fashion blogger presenti sul web: Blogger of the Week.
Ogni settimana sarà dedicata ad una fashion blogger diversa: ogni martedì pubblicheremo un'intervista con la nostra blogger in cui ci parlerà del suo rapporto con la moda, di sé e delle sue passioni, mentre il giovedì ospiteremo sul blog una selezione di prodotti o un intero outfit scelto dalla Blogger of the week su E' abbastanza chiaro?
E allora iniziamo!
Sì, perché chi sta scrivendo adesso è allo stesso tempo social media manager di EleonoraBonucci e blogger di Modalicious, un blog che si occupa di moda, nuove tendenze, design e gadget.
Sono Violetta Lima, o almostviola, e vivo in Sicilia, dove sono nata. Come ho già detto sono una social media manager e amo il mondo del fashion e del design.
Non sono una fashion blogger nel senso solito e comune del termine, non posto foto di me e dei miei outfit (lo trovo piuttosto strano!) ma mi piace scrivere e parlare di moda. Il mio argomento preferito però sono gli accessori, i dettagli strani e i gadget, compresi quelli hi-tech....perché ormai anche loro fanno parte integrante del nostro look.
Ho iniziato a scrivere sul mio blog 4 anni fa, chiamandolo Modalicious dal mix di moda e delicious; perché credo davvero che possa essere e sia divertente e piacevole quasi come un gioco.
Amo il mio paese, l'Italia, e la Sicilia in particolare, e la sua naturale inclinazione per la moda...è come se si respirasse stile! E di solito mi ispiro proprio alla Sicilia e ai suoi colori forti e vivaci sotto una luce abbagliante...un po' come immaginare gli scatti o i mini film delle campagne pubblicitarie di Dolce&Gabbana!
Cosa non manca nel mio armadio: jeans comodi, ballerine, t-shirt coloratissime, camicie basic, delle Dr Martens (ho una minicollezione..) e la mia Pliage Longchamp.
Il mio ultimo acquisto è una clutch bicolore con tracolla in catena e borchie creata da un giovane e originale designer siciliano, Andrea Gangi, nella sua boutique coloratissima a Catania, Ibridi...assolutamente adorabile.
La mia wishlist? Ancora piuttosto lunga...e in essa figura di sicuro una Celine. E' troppo evidente che sono una bagaholic?
Spero che il mio blog vi piaccia, in più mi trovate anche su tumblr, facebook e Polyvore..seguitemi e aggiungetemi se vi va!

A giovedì con le mie scelte per le Shopping Tips!
