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!)…

Dior and Florence: A Day As Miss Dior

Dior and Florence. What’s better than the encounter between a wonderful city of art and beauty like Florence and a brand which is an international symbol of elegance and beauty like Dior. I’ve been part of this magical encounter in an incredible day with amazing makeup and wonderful accessories, inside a Dior boutique, a corner of Paris… in the cradle of Renaissance. Bags like masterpieces, chic cocktails and flawless, elegant views of Florence. Today, here on my blog, I’ll show you my day as Miss Dior with Dior, in Florence.

Dior and Florence: A Day As Miss Dior. Makeup, Accessories, Cocktails… J’Adore!

First makeup of the day. Created by Davide Frizzi, Dior makeup artist. natural, glowing and bright makeup. Clean face with bonne mine effect, eyes are protagonists, healthy and glowing look! With this kind of makeup is easy and fun playing with accessories. Just relax and choose the perfect outfit inside the room of one of the most beautiful and elegant hotels in Florence, Hotel Savoy – HIP Hotels is pleasure itself.The view is breathtaking. Pearl earrings, sunglasses, necklace, bracelet, precious details… What to choose? WHY should I choose?

Then doing some shopping in the city streets: elegant outfit, chic and contemporary, just like my Florence nowadays, just like Dior. the makeup became darker. The eyes are more intense, lips are turn purple, dark like a glass of good Chianti. So let’s stop at Dior boutique, in Via de’ Tornabuoni, the street of high fashion and classy shopping that at Christmas time turns into pure magic. Inside Dior boutique is just like being in Paris, inside Maison Dior. A long staircase, mirrors, white and light. Roses, roses and more roses. Private ares, sofas, the Winter Collection and the Cruise Collection. Amazing bags: next season is going to drive us crazy! In the photos I’ll give you a preview along with some other fall-winter pieces which are an absolute must have.

Sun is setting over Florence, Ponte Vecchio shouts “J’Adore!”. Makeup became more intense, sensual mysterious. Lips are fuchsia, eyes are beyond black. Makeup is the real protagonist now. A black little dress, an intriguing cocktail at a bistro with my name, Irene, in Piazza della Repubblica. Then, red and gold accessories because I want to be bold but I never forget elegance.

Enjoy all the photos of my day con Dior. Pure magic.
