4 days to christmas!

4 days to Xmas!
Still alive everybody? Hope so, because this third festive outfit look promising and far more sparkling than the stars the Mayas used to observe (with lacking outcome, I venture to say).


Cool colors are both striking and classy: this Christmas opt for ice hued garments, like this stunning 3.1 Phillip Lim cabochons embellished sweater. Style it with a sparkling sequined pencil skirt and "iced" accessories, then cover your dashing look with a metallic matelassé coat to bling bling supremely.

Darling, I hope I can say I'm finally back writing on Tenue du Jour, I have missed it, but you know, life at university is so hard and challenging; moreover, this is my 3rd and last year at NABA (acronym of Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano) so I'm working hard to launch my graduation collection and I'm of course focused on my remaining exams.
By the way, why don't taking advantage of these Christmas holidays to hand out festive style tips?
Let's start!


Add a pop of sparkle to your bright Christmas with the ultimate holiday sweaters, paillettes embellished and overjoy printed.

Cosmic love

Bonjour à tous! Very very sorry for the lack of posts last week, but my portfolio project at the university took me a lot of time.

By the way, let's start this week with one of the most trend-topic of this FW12: back to the future.
Galactic dresses, cosmic prints, futuristic design: the universe and its sparkling elements are on the top of fashion designers' aesthetic list this winter. 
Give super science fiction heroine boost to your outfit by teaming a silver sleek top with a pencil skirt vivid printed; finish the look with stunning masterpieces as a luxe-appeal statement necklace, glitter-finish designer clutch bag and architectural and edgy wedges.
