#OMWSUMMER I spent the 15th of September like THIS last year: with three weeks of vacations left on the other side of the world, where maybe I even feel better. This summer though has been a little weird for everyone, starting from the strange cold weather we had here in Italy, which maybe wasn't that bad for those that like me stayed in the city. It was a summer spent in Milan, it started in july on a rainy day with me moving to my new apartment, it ended today in a sunny morning with that cachemere-sweater kind of fresh breeze and the Ikea guy coming to assemble the last closet. That little bit of vacations I had was in the mountains, which actually were never my thing until this year, being the kind of person that could spend her existance by the seaside. Though, this year I've learnt to appreciate different things, I learnt that different doesn't always mean "worse". It was a summer full of emotions and now we are ready to start this new season. Milan, Paris, I am coming, new collections are awaiting for me. How did your summer go?

FASHION WEEK PROOF My beauty must haves for Fashion Weeks, or rather those products I trust, that I will use in the morning when getting ready to face a whole day between shows and presentations, both in Milan and Paris. Some new products from Armani Beauty, which I discovered recently during a cocktail event with their wonderful team. I tried them and they are already my favorites for their versatility: an eyeliner that is also an eyeshadow, an eyeshadow that becomes a blush and so on... The concealer that does not only cover, but helps us get rid of our dark circles day after day. The new shades of Dior's nail polishes, Bar and Carrè Bleu, that perfectly match most of my fashion week outfits. The iconic J'adore, that never goes out of fashion and last but not least Diorskin Star foundation, a day proof product, which is therefore perfect for the occasion. These are my new musts for the fashion month and for this fall. What do you guys think? Have you tried some of these yet?

THIS LIGHT September is the warm light at sunset, it's wearing a light summer dress, knowing it could be the last time of the year. September is a special month and it's a really messy one, for me it means rushing from one place to the other, so that I even decided (rare event) to wear a pair of sneakers. September is having to go to the hairdresser, because not even a lock of your hair wants to stay in its place. September is melancholia yet there is so much will to start everything all over again. September in Milan is beautiful. And what about your September?
1. Issa blazer 2. Nasty Gal sunglasses 3. Jason Wu bag 4. Vans slip ons 5. Max Mara trousers 6. Style by Stories earrings
#NYFW As you guys know also this season I couldn't organize myself to go to NYFW (sigh!). The only positive thing is that following the right websites and accounts you can live some events as if you were there. I open my Instagram and I see real time the best looks from the runways, I look at the whole collection a few hours later on style.com and I find out how my favorite editors and bloggers dressed up just by looking at the photographers' social media accounts... I don't miss a minute of this fashion week.
In NYC it's so humid that there's no hairstylist that can fix that
In NYC a blazer, classic or deconstructed, is the new sexy
In NYC it's all about clean lines and neutral colors
In NYC heels will never be out of fashion, but your slip ons have more chances to get snapped on the street
In NYC sneakers go with everything, even paired in ways you would have never imagined
At NYFW exaggeration is not fashionable at all
