The Oriocenter in Bergamo: my day of shopping in over 200 shops!


irene's closetThe Oriocenter in Bergamo: my day of shopping in more than 200 shops!

The Oriocenter in Bergamo. Have you ever been to the Oriocenter, the big shopping centre in Bergamo, which is just next to the Orio al Serio airport? If your answer is no, you absolutely have to go. If you do know it, I’m sure you’ll agree with what I’m about to say. The Oriocenter is a gigantic shopping centre (definitely one of the biggest in Italy). It really is a shopping paradise: basically if you’re looking for a particular shop or item of clothing, you’ll find it here… and more. It’s a pretty crazy place. You can go from Zara, Bershka, Mango, Pull & Bear, Jennifer, OVS, Stradivarius, Motivi and all the other fashion chains that you can possibly think of, to shops such as Negozi Pellizzari, Imperial, Pandora, Swarovski, Hollister, Diesel, Replay, Timberland, Iper and MediaWorld, and so on and so forth. There are hundreds of beauty and make up shops, from MAC to Sephora, and also Kiko, Lush, Madina, Douglas, Erbolario, Bottega Verde, plus sports shops such as Universo Sport and Nike as well as book shops and other services (for example a really cheap tailors that can do any tailoring job super quickly while you’re out shopping, which I think is great!). If you’re then in need of a break, the only problem is choosing where to eat from the enormous range of options: from sushi to pizza, burgers to ravioli, meat to puddings.
The Oriocenter in Bergamo:  the #ORIOSTYLE feature with all the items of clothing I chose!
If you still haven’t visited this shopping centre, make sure you give yourself plenty of time to go round it. It’s worth it! A little while ago I was invited by the Oriocenter, where I discovered something which I already suspected to be true: shopping really does burn calories! We walked more than 10km in one day of shopping at the Oriocenter (I told you it was enormous!). My task? To go round all the shops and choose for you guys the trendiest looks, for both girls and boys. I chose outfits for 4 occasions: elegant, travel, casual and sporty. Are you curious? If you look at the #ORIOSTYLE feature on the Oriocenter Facebook page, you’ll find all the items of clothing I chose! In today’s post, however, you can see a bit of the behind-the-scenes action from my day at the centre… already caught your attention? See you soon!

The Petali shopping centre: my day at Petali plus your chance to win €500 to go shopping!

The Petali shopping centre. You should know that I’ve been shopping for you… and I had so much fun! A little while ago I spent a day at the Petali shopping centre in Reggio Emilia, the new shopping centre with loads of shops, restaurants, a gym and a cinema (basically a great place!). My task for the day was to go round all the shops and choose items of clothing and accessories that are on trend right now, for three occasions: a romantic dinner, fitness and let’s go party, both for men and women. Other than making me want to shop till I drop, we also took photos of some of the clothes I picked out… and here they are!

The Petali shopping centre: my day there plus your chance to win €500 to go shopping and be a stylist! 

On the Petali website from today 1st April until the 30th April, you can choose your own favourite items of clothing and accessories, create a virtual look for men and women for the three occasions (romantic dinner, fitness time and let’s go party). I will then choose three winners which will be the three contestants that have created the three looks that I think are most on trend. Go wild! The three winners will receive €500 of spending money to spend in the Petali shopping centre!

I’ll leave you with a few photos from my day at the Petali shopping centre, of a few of the clothes I picked! Good luck everyone!!

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!)…

Detto Fatto Irene Colzi: All the Episodes of 2015, My Outfits and the Backstage!

Detto Fatto Irene Colzi. The episode of the 8th January was my fourth appearance on TV and I still can’t believe it! I would have never imagined to say that… but I love it! Detto Fatto crew is like a big family and Caterina is so sweet! But let’s start from the beginning, I’m talking about Detto Fatto, a TV show on RAI 2 where I’ll make  fashion tutorials for the whole season! Have you seen the past episodes? Don’t worry, in this post I’m going to make a little recap of all the episodes of 2015! :)

Detto Fatto Irene Colzi: All the Episodes of 2015, My Outfits and the Backstage!

On Detto Fatto, I’m a Fashion Tutor, and I give some advice about outfits for different occasions, taking inspiration from the fashion shows and making them more appropriate for everyday life… never forgetting to talk about the latest trends ;) The first episode (WATCH IT HERE) was about winter outfits that girls can wear during exams at the uni, in the second one (WATCH IT HERE) I created some outfits to win your exes back, ideal for a romantic date. In the third episode instead, we’ve been more serious, showing some outfits for the office. (WATCH IT HERE), Finally, in the fourth one (WATCH IT HERE) I’ve talked about what to wear to go sightseeing in our art cities, to stay warm and comfortable.

Enjoy all the photos of my outfits and the outfits of my guests! Which is your favorite episode? And which is the outfit that you like the most? :)

Thanks for following me on Detto Fatto ant to the wonderful team of Detto Fatto that for me is like a beautiful family! Soon more news… and watch next episode live on Rai 2 :)

New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Goals to Fulfill in 2016!


New Year's Resolutions

New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Goals to Fulfill in 2016!

New Year’s Resolutions. As you can imagine, it’s not easy to make a list of goals to fulfill and post it online, so the entire world can see it. But, after sharing them with more than 300.000 users that every month visit my blog, I have to work harder to make them come true!!! It always works! Most of my New Year’s resolutions for 2015 are real now. Only few of those goals have been suspended or postponed and you can find them again in my list for 2016. Here are my New Year’s Resolutions: the goals I want to fulfill stating from tomorrow!And with this list I wish you to enjoy the end of 2015 and to start a great 2016. I wish that all your desires will come true and you get to fulfill all the goals you set for the new year. Yes, we can! HAPPY NEW YEAR! SEE YOU ON IRENE’S CLOSET NEXT YEAR :))

New Year’s Resolutions: 10 Goals to Fulfill in 2016!

Do that thing that I’ve always wanted to do.
There’s one thing (or maybe two) that I’ve wanted to do for ages. I’m a bit afraid and I’m not to sure because it’s a little embarrassing. So I keep postponing it! But 2016 is the year of change!

Save some time for me

In 2015 I lived many professional changes, so my free time has drastically reduced! My resolution for 2016 is to try to find more time for me!

Learn to relax

This goal is connected to the previous one: this year I really want to learn to stop thinking about work! It’s not easy for people like me, hyperactive, too many ideas, too many things to be done, too many goals to fulfill in the short run. But I have to understand that there are some moment in which, for your own good you have too stop and relax a bit! ;)

Read more books

I write a lot of course… but I also like to read, read a lot! I love reading!:) One of my resolutions for 2016 is to read at least 2 books a month!

Since many of them come true… read my Resolutions for 2012Resolutions for 2013Resolutions for 2014 e and the most recent Resolutions for 2015!
