I was contemplating about this post, because I wanted it to represent the city in the best way possible. And the perfect location was right in front of my nose, or more correctly right above: the rooftop of our building. I first got to enjoy it during the July 4th celebrations, with the amazing view on fireworks, but then it didn't occur to me that the roof is open all the time. So it's just a great place to hang out, or even get a tan.
Life in NY is so much different from life in Milan. In this case there is no better or worse, just different. New York is filled with energy, light, constant movement and Milan is calmer and much more settled, you don't get the feeling of a big city there. And while I do enjoy the city very much, I still miss the quiet streets, the food and my friends there...And Im wondering how my next visit to Milan will happen...
Besides the change Im still trying to adapt to, I'm also trying to adapt to the wardrobe change. What felt like a normal daily outfit in Milan, feels like overdressed in New York and so my wardrobe is going through changes. Third of it by the way is still in Milan, hopefully it will arrive some time in September with my friend Karen :)
The dress in this post is a new purchase. It's from the collaboration line of Uniqlo with Costello Tagliapietra, the design team I highly appreciate. Their work with drapery and jersey and their attitude towards dressing women and production of clothing is really impressing. One of my biggest projects in school were done about this duo and since then I was obsessed to have one of their dresses. Of course the price tag made it kind of impossible, so once I saw the capsule collection at the Uniqlo shop I tried almost every dress on, picking up this one, because it seemed the most versatile.
The shoes are Balenciaga from last year and the necklace came from young and very talented designer/stylist Noey.
Hopefully if everything goes well, from now on the posts should be more frequent as Im reunited with my photographer :)
Have a great week! Kisses!
