The coolest watch ever (Amuda Watch Review)

Do you know that super cool and different kind of item? I’ve got a watch that changes color according to the time and I’m loving it! It’s an Amuda Watch, check out my review on the coolest watch I’ve ever got and understand how it changes its colors.

So how does this watch change color?

Amuda Watch Review - Manu Luize

It even looks like a normal and super cute watch with a colorful background, but in fact it’s even cooler, because as the minutes and hours go by, the clock background changes color.

Look how it was in some different times:

Amuda Watch Review

By the way, this photo I took at the top of San Marino, a micro European state that is in the middle of Italy and it is a super charming place, so this was one of the sights of the city.

And another picture of Amuda Watch’s watch in San Marino at another time, showing some new colors in the background:

Amuda Watch Review

Besides being a beautiful minimalist and stylish watch, it is the most fun watch I’d ever had and I LOVED it because it changes color and every time it’s a little different. I can not resist to cool and fun accessories.

Every time I wear it, someone wants to know more about it and loves to see the new background colors from time to time.

But besides being cool accessory, something that I think is even cooler is that from every watch sold, U$ 2 will be donated to the Happy Hippie Foundation, which is an NGO founded by singer Miley Cyrus and whose mission is to fight injustices against homeless young, young people from the LGBTQ community and other vulnerable populations.

And the watch costs U$ 15, with free shipping worldwide, and it’s available like mine with the caramel bracelet or black bracelet, you can buy it here:

Amuda Watch, U$ 15.

 

I love to match this watch with more dress up looks or even more basic outfits, because it is very versatile and it goes well with both kind of outfits.

Lovely Midi dress Outfit

Who else loves a midi dress? With such a ladylike feeling, I love midi dresses, specially those that are high waisted and create such a feminine look.

Looking for some inspiration on how to wear a midi dress?

Check out my lovely outfit with a pretty midi dress I’m totally in love with!

I’m in love with this dress since I had laid my eyes on it, it’s such a feminine piece and I made it even more ladylike pairing it with court shoes and a nude handbag. The dress is from a website called StyleWe that works with independent fashion designers from all around the round, and it has some very interesting fashion available over there.

In order to create a ladylike outfit, don’t forget to pick some delicate accessories as well. Court shoes with some jewelry, a delicate handbag as well as earrings, a bracelet and some rings, all of them in a delicate style to match the whole outfit.

The dress is made in jacquard, so it’s gives a lot of shape and structure to the dress, making it to stay in this shape of a skirt on A-line silhouette (A-line is the name of this shape of skirt that looks like the letter “A”, its tight on the waist and big and voluminous at the end of it).

The new collection of the brand brings the cool style of Italian blogger to this collection, the accessories have a cool style and she played a lot with glitter and shiny pieces!

The presentation of the collection took place in a pop-up store here in Milan with the brand’s new collection and a candy store just in front of it.

The photographer David Bruce accompanied me at the presentation here in Milan and he was a bit of a paparazzi to photograph my look at the entrance of this presentation.

 

Chiara Ferragni stopped at the presentation of her brand to tell a little about her new collection and her inspirations and to give some interviews:

The shoes of the brand bring a lot of shine and glitter in slippers, pointy shoes and boots, either as a pair of shoes covered in glitter or in other pairs with just some jewelry details like the court shoes pair that was at the begging of this blog post.

MFW: Giuseppe di Morabito – Fall 2017

The Giuseppe di Morabito’s presentation for the Fall 2017/18 collection took place here in Milan during the Milan Fashion Week at the Palazzo Parigi, a Milan’s sophisticated hotel, and it showed us a collection inspired by 19th-century pre-Raphaelite art movement in a feminine and delicate way.

The brand’s Fall 2017 collection brings an elegant mix between a inspiration from the period of the pre-Raphaelite artistic movement which was very strong in the UK, and the current trends that have been changing the fashion world.

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was a group of English painters, poets and critics in the mid-nineteenth century, in England the TV series Desperate Romantics portrayed this period and its main characters and founders of the brotherhood, the group wanted to reform art. One of its founders was Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who inspired prints and flowers in the Giuseppe di Morabito’s collection for the next fall.

The floral theme is present in Giuseppe di Morabito’s Fall 2017 collection inspired by the flowers of Dante Gabriel Rossetti’s autumnal colors and the costumes wore by girls in the art of Evelyn de Morgan.

Couture techniques are combined with the use of everyday materials such as the use of lace in more sportive items, creating a contrast that shows a more romantic side. The contrast also appears in laser-embroidered leather garments like the skirt in the outfit above.

The Giuseppe di Morabito’s silhouettes of this fall collection presented at this Milan Fashion Week are very feminine, with several items with a high and marked waistline.

MFW: Hanita – Fall 2017/18 collection

Another collection I checked at Milan Fashion Week was from the italian brand Hanita, which has created a a Fall/Winter collection punctuated by black, red and pink millennial as the main colors of this season. A brand that seeks to keep alive the made in Italy, creating a 100% Italian product.

Hanita - Fall 2017 / 18

A young and modern winter was created for this new season of Hanita, the Italian brand was created in 2008 and they always care about having great quality materials and the final garments.

With a presentation at the Grand Hotel et Milan in the Fashion Quadrangle here in Milan, Hanita showed pieces for day and night in this edition of MFW.

Attention to the detail that the fur used in this collection is ecological fur, (as in the leopard coat that opened this post) which is not very common to see at the Milan Fashion Week collections.

This leather jacket was one of Hanita’s Fall 2017 highlights at MFW.

Velvet also showed that the fabric that was in fashion since the previous winter, continues to be trendy another season.

Light tones like millennial pink make this collection elegant and super modern:

Fiorinda Bride by Carlo Pignatelli 2018 – MFW

• Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli – 2018 Collection

Romantic Wedding dress

With a collection of beautiful and very elegant wedding dresses, most designs focus on embroidery and lace on the bodice of the dress, although it also brings entire models in lace.

Carlo Pignatelli’s collection is very delicate and feminine, ideal for brides who look for more romantic and delicate wedding dresses.

Carlo Pignatelli became known worldwide for his men’s fashion for weddings and formal parties, currently he also creates a fashionable female and bridal party collection (with the Fiorinda collection and another couture collection for brides), as well as accessories.

A curiosity about the Italian designer: in 1995, he created the uniform of the Juventus football team, showing its versatility in fashion from sports fashion to couture for brides.

 

Romantic Wedding dresses MFW 2018

The designer’s delicate wedding dresses feature bandeau designs to dresses thin straps and even long sleeve dress designs for the various bridal and wedding styles.

For the brides that are looking for short wedding dresses, they are also available in the collection, for those who chose a more informal wedding or for who just needs a short white dress for simple notary wedding.

3 Pieces every woman should own (Zanstyle / Stylebest)

3 Pieces every woman should own

Have you ever stop to think about what pieces every woman should own in her wardrobe? Those that are basic and necessary for our daily life, whether to work, study or to take a walk around on a day off.

I have picked 3 pieces that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe in partnership with Zanstyle  and the Stylebest site, those pieces are always useful to have in your wardrobe and they are never enough.

 

1. Black dress

vestido preto

image: Black dress Stylebest

A black dress is essential in any woman’s wardrobe, regardless of your style, there’s always a black dress for you. Whether it’s for work or for a night out, the little black dress is that must-have piece in every woman’s wardrobe.

The cool thing is to have at least one black dress like this one that picked, because it’s a little black dress that you can wear for work, to a dinner or even for a night out.

It can dress it up or down if you wear it with different accessories, for example: wear it with ballet flats for work, or dress it up with a gorgeous pair of high heels and amazing accessories! Go for a maxi necklace, make-up and hair and you’re done! Check out other models of black dresses on Stylebest.

 

2. White T-shirt

T-shirt branca

How to not own at least one white T-shirt in the closet? That’s an incredibly versatile piece that you can wear in an outfit with a super cool jeans, or dress it up with a lovely skirt in more elegant and super feminine look.

To make it more elegant, wear your white T-shirt with silver or golden accessories, or even with colored ones to bring some color into your outfit.

 

3. Denim pants

And you can not miss those jeans! Another piece of clothing I also find it so versatile, because it can be worn in a more casual look with a T-shirt and a pair of sneakers, or in more elegant look with a silk blouse, powerful accessories and high heels!

The pieces that illustrate this post are from the Stylebest site, some from the Zanstyle line, a line part of the website that has basic pieces with super cool prices, so you can always have them in your wardrobe.

Cangiari Fall 2017 – Milan Fashion Week

One of Milan Fashion Week’s presentations I have been was Cangiari Fall 2017, a brand that has rescued an old tradition of fabrics from Calabria (Italy) and which creates handmade woolen fabrics, taking eight hours to create each meter of fabric.

 

Cangiari Fall 2017

 

• Cangiari Fall 2017 MFW:

Cangiari - Fall 2017 MFW

The Cangiari Fall 2017 collection was inspired by the Nature’s colors during the fall/winter season, all with handwoven fabrics produced by the brand.

With patterns that were inspired by the Ancient Greece that meet the new fashion trends. Using a selection of unconventional materials that were inspired by the origins, by the work in the factories and the nights during the war.

 

Cangiari - Inverno 2017

With patterns created with Byzantine and Hellenistic designs, Cangiari takes this ancient inspiration to create modern pieces for the Fall 2017 collection.

 

Cangiari - Fall 2017 MFW

With garments such as coats, ponchos, capes and kimonos, Cangiari brings us a comfortable fall/winter with beautiful pieces with a lot of style. Perfect to create that cosy style that I love for the fall season.

 

Cachecol Cangiari - Fall 2017

 

With fringed pieces and ankle long coats and gilets, the Cangiari Fall 2017 collection has neutral colors such as shades of grey, black and cream, combined with details in red and green on its patterns.

inverno 2017 - Cangiari

 

Cangiari collections was created under Maria Paola Pedetta’s creative direction, being a brand which works with the production of fabrics in a sustainable and ethical way, with the traditional  made in Italy quality.

Kimono Cangiari

Cangiari creative director told that she “thought about a collection that, more than any other, told through the materials the meaning of Cangiari story. Its sprit, its values, its pride.”

While visiting the brand’s presentation at Milan Fashion Week, I’ve learned more about the brand and its process to create the handwoven fabrics: the are created based on a traditional from Calabria (region on the italian south).

This technique was  passed from generation to generation through the music of the region and it was falling into oblivion. The brand had to join the songs and their translations to rescue this form of fabric production to create handmade fabrics and pieces of the Italian label.
