New Sandals

New Sandals

Me and my mom bought these new shoes for me.

We went at the centre of Rome where all the best shops are this Saturday.

As soon as we closed my family’s shop on Saturday we had lunch together and my brother and father went together at the harbor to work on some boat furniture. Me and my mom decided to go shopping at the centre and then to have dinner together in a nice place around there.

We got the bus and the tube and arrived at the centre in 30 minutes. It is not difficult to get there.

I am very happy to have my new shoes which will make my summer days more chic.

New Shoes and Purse

IMG_1170

Hey girls! I bought new shoes and I am super happy about it!

They are pink, obviously, and they are the so called in Italian “ballerina”. I got them in a shop in Rome where I usually go to with my mom, it is near my house, just 15 minutes car trip.

Me and my mom had the brilliant idea of going shopping last Saturday and that is when my days changed because instead of going around with the same black shoes I was with pink ones instead.

I got new shoes basically because my black ones were broken and so I had to buy new ones. I found the best ones I could ever find. Pink, my favorite color and very feminine. They look great with whatever type of clothing.

We were looking inside the shop for some shoes, there were nice ones but my mother noticed these ones. She called me and showed them to me and I Iiked them immediately. They were in different colors such as black, red and blue. I tried both the red, blue and the pink ones. At the end, I got the ones in pink and I bought a beautiful purse with them.

Hope you enjoy going shopping and getting some new ballerinas for spring! Everyone will look at you stunned! Have a lovely shopping girls!

Prada

Prada

Prada S.p.A. is an Italian luxury fashion house, specializing in ready-to-wear leather and fashion accessories, luggage, perfumes, shoes, watches and so on. It was established by Mario Prada.

Mario Prada and his brother Martino started the company in 1913 as a leathergoods shop called Fratelli Prada, Prada Brothers in English, set in Milan, Italy. At first, the shop sold leather goods and imported English purses and steamer trunks.

Mario Prada did not believe that women could be part of a business and so he stopped female members of his family from entering. Absurdly, Mario’s son was not curious about the profession and so his daughter, Luisa Prada, became the successor of Prada and worked there for approximately twenty years. In 1970, her daughter, Miuccia Prada, joined the firm and in 1978 replaced her mother in the management of it.

She began making waterproof bags out of Pocone. In 1977 she met Patrizio Bertelli, an Italian who at the age of 17 began making his own leathergoods business. A little bit later he joined the company. He gave great contributions to the business giving advices to Miuccia who thanks to him changed the company for the good.

With Bertelli next to her Miuccia would soon start to create her own design and encorporate her ideas in the Prada firm.

Prada’s bags are so acclaimed because are not just bags to carry things around but are real works of art. They are elusive.

“Basically I’m trying to make men more sensitive and women stronger.” Miuccia Prada.

Fashion

Fashion

Fashion design started in the 19th century with Charles Frederick Worth. He was the first to create and make use of the principles of design and fashion which could be called haute couture or high fashion.

Fashion is a well-known design or convention, particularly in clothing, accessories, footwear, body piercing, make-up or furniture. Fashion is a unique and usually orientation towards which a person dresses. It is the predominant behaving style and the latest creations of fabric designers.

Throughout the 20th century all high fashion originated in Paris and to an inferior extent London.

Changes in costume often happened in times of economic or social change, as happened in ancient Rome and the medieval Caliphate, but then a long span without major changes would follow.

“The woman is the most perfect doll that i have dressed with delight and admiration.”
— Karl Lagerfeld
