A blue hat, some colourful accessories and a bicycle: the Sodini icons!

A blue hat. Do timeless icons exist today? Yes indeed, those symbols, those iconic figures, those objects that remind us of generations and generations that never seem to fade, in the eyes of both youngsters and veterans. When we speak of certain people, the icons seem to radiate perfection, in every sense of the word. When we speak of iconic objects, instead we speak of objects that have become symbols: either symbols of an era, of a status or of a fashion.

A blue hat and some colourful accessories

My favourite timeless icon is my trusty bicycle given to me by my grandmother: it symbolises holidays in Versilia and my childhood in Florence – a moment in time. For me, it has become a symbol of elegance and a way for me to get around the city while still looking graceful. I’ve paired the bike with an outfit that nods to another era: a pair of high heels (why not, they work really well on a bike!) with a hat, a floaty dress and some timeless jewellery. The finishing touches include a statement necklace that is super versatile and works for day time outfit or a a smarter evening ensemble, plus a colourful bracelet that brightens up your look.

My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!



My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!

My trip to Costa Rica. ‘Pura Vida’ is the official motto of Costa Rica, meaning ‘pure life’. These two words perfectly sum up this beautiful country: a wild and sun-kissed land that is rich in beautiful nature and animals. A land of nature that is still blissfully untouched, dreamy beaches, unforgettable little places. Costa Rica is the country that we had the pleasure of exploring together with Piz Buin, the famous sun-care brand that was the creator of the first suncream, and that is celebrating its 70th birthday this year with the launch of lots of new products and its search for the best sun-kissed corners of the world for you to explore!

My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!

So super protected by an infinite range of products by Piz Buin that we were lucky enough to try out during the trip (and that I must say, provided excellent sun protection even in adverse circumstances… and this comes from someone who is obsessed with sun protection!), together with the Piz Buin team and some bloggers from all across Europe (Trendy TasteFashion MumblrThe muse and the ladybugSandra Kisic), off we went to explore Costa Rica!

Caterina Balivo style and looks: my visit to the Balivo household to revitalise her wardrobe!

Caterina Balivo style and looks: my visit to the Balivo household to revitalise her wardrobe!

Caterina Balivo style and looks. Every time Caterina and I bump into each other in the dressing rooms of Detto Fatto before filming the next episode, there’s always lots of “Ah your dress is so cool!” “Noo! But your shoes! Where are they from?”. Essentially Cate and I understand each other completely in terms of fashion (even if sometimes we affectionally squabble during the show over the catwalk looks… aaah if they are tough!) HERE YOU CAN SEE ALL MY EPISODES OF DETTO FATTO! 

Ogni volta che io e Caterina ci incrociamo nei camerini di Detto Fatto prima della puntata è tutto un “Ah ma che figo il tuo vestito!” “Noo! Ma le tue scarpe? Di chi sono?”. Insomma io e Cate in fatto di moda ci capiamo (Anche se spesso lo sapete, in puntata ci becchettiamo amorevolmente sui look da sfilata.. aaah se sono difficili!) QUI POTETE RIVEDERE TUTTE LE MIE PUNTATE A DETTO FATTO!

Caterina Balivo style and looks: my visit to the Balivo household to revitalise her wardrobe!

Basically during one of the recent episodes of Detto Fatto, Caterina said to me “Of course, Ire, you’ll have to come to mine and rifle through my wardrobe and give me advice on how to style some of the pieces I have that I don’t know how to wear..!!” And what better challenge could there be for me? So here we are in Caterina Balivo’s house, rather, in her wardrobe (Check out her own fashion blog here!)  looking for items of clothing that, despite being gorgeous, Caterina has never really known how to wear: they’re either too detailed or too fussy, and they all live permanently inside her cupboard. But how to wear them? Ah Caterina Balivo and her wardrobe (one of the best, let me tell you!)…

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat: an EASY look for all ages!


rc=”http://www.ireneccloset.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/irene-colzi-fashion-blogger-outfit-2.jpg” alt=”Jeans a vita alta” width=”605″ height=”908″ />

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat.

High-waisted jeans. What is the one item of clothing that is loved by all women, of all ages, shapes and sizes? Of course I’m talking about jeans: we all have them in our wardrobe and they feature in nearly all our outfits, am I right? Jeans are super versatile and so they always help us out when we don’t know what to wear! I’m preparing a new post for you that’s dedicated to jeans, with all the hottest denim trends for next season… but in the meantime here’s one of my outfits from a few days ago where I’m wearing the most useful wardrobe staple… jeans!

High-waisted jeans, a shirt and a hat: an EASY look for all ages!

Here I’m wearing one of my favourite trouser styles at the moment: high-waisted and super skinny! They look best belted at the waist and then combined with a look that has both masculine and feminine influences.  A long coat, an ankle boot, a hat and a white shirt… possibly stolen from your boyfriend’s wardrobe. I’ve chosen to add a flash of colour… what do you think? Do you like this look? Let me know your thoughts!

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent: My after hours with YSL

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent: My after hours with YSL

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent. What happens when the darkness of night meets the pink light of dawn? The neon lights stand out and illuminate the night. While the sky lightens from black to pink, the lights shine, the city comes alive. There are those who are just waking up, and those who are still asleep. And then there are those who have stayed up all night to watch the sun come up. Electrifying! Non-stop! After hours!

I always aim to live life to the full, so this amazing spectacle of light and shadows is something I often see. All you need is a cup of coffee while you’re reclining in a comfy chair, a spritz of perfume to suit the daring mood, with the atmosphere full of electrifying anticipation, and share in the moment of relaxation. Make sure you always live life with determination and glamour!

Black Opium Nuit Blanche Yves Saint Laurent

Tucked in the twilight shadows is where you’ll find the new fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent, Black Opium Nuit Blanche: a glittering and luminous bottle that perfectly embodies the light after sundown, the pink hues of day that mix with the dark shades of evening. Inside the bottle, there are dynamic and invigorating notes of black coffee, sweet and feminine notes of white flowers and orange blossom, and light fluttery hints of white musk. Black Opium Nuit Blanche is the first perfume to combine the scents of coffee and flowers! It’s a perfume that will get you hooked: after the first drop you won’t be able to live without it!

Here’s my verdict on the new fragrance by YSL, Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Nuit Blanche: perfect for daytime, even better for nighttime.
