The red nail polish is a classic, check out the swatch of how the red nail polish from Kiko Make Up Milano in color N. 285 looks on my nails. A bright red nail polish with a slight shiny finish.
• Red Nail polish from Kiko Milano N˚ 285:
The red nail polish # 285 from Kiko Milano is a very bright red color, in my photo of packaging it is not possible to notice it, but it has some very small and subtle particles of glitter, as if they were a micro glitter, which can be seen in the bottle of the nail polish.
But when you apply the nail polish on your nails, the glitter don’t really show, because it’s very subtle, it only gives a slight glow.
Check out how the No. 285 red nail polish from Kiko Milano shows on the nails:
I applied two layers of the nail polish, it covered well and it did not show any transparent areas.
For a bright nail polish, it even lasted quite well on my nails without peeling in the first few days and only coming off lightly at the tips of my nails by the end of a week. In fact, I was even surprised at the duration of this nail polish, I confess that I expected it would last less.
A red dress is so important as any black dress in a woman’s wardrobe, it’s a statement kind of piece that’s already a classic in fashion and a must-have.
So here’s my choice of outfit with a little red dress, straight from a hidden little palazzo in Milan.
A red dress with ruffles, that always make a piece more feminine, even if in scarlet red! I paired this dress with black high heels and an updo in my hair, just because it’s incredible hot here in Milan.
I’m really enjoying this red dress, it’s easy to wear and it’s also perfect to pair with ballet flats for a more comfortable outfit and a different kind of look.
The red dress is from a website called StyleWe, it’s a website that sells independent fashion designer pieces and I found it so cool, I was contacted by them to pick two outfits and this lovely red dress was one of them. The dress quality is really good and the fabric is soft, so I was positively impressed.
Red dress: StyleWe | Necklace: My Gloss | Watch: Amuda Watch
GET THE LOOK:
For the jewelry, I’ve picked some almost minimal pieces in gold and a cool watch to give this outfit a little hint of coolness. A long necklace, a pair of earrings and quite a few rings + a bracelet.
Well, since there is never enough red on an outfit, I worn this red dress with red lipstick, the one and only and my favorite red lipstick: Ruby Woo by MAC, just to complete this outfit with the right amount of red. On my eyes, my signature makeup look with eyeshadows in tones of brown, elegant and it will always go with virtually any outfit.

A lot of shine and glitter in cute combinations while others are more sportive, blogger Chiara Ferragni’s style translates into her collection for her brand in this Fall 2017, which brings shoes, accessories and a few pieces of clothing.

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:
• Chiara Ferragni – Fall 2017.18:
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.
For the presentation of her new Fall 2017 collection, Chiara Ferragni was wearing a pair of jeans and an embroidered knit, which was completed by a fur and, of course, a pair of shoes from her new collection.
The brand of Chiara Ferragni had started with accessories and now it also includes some items of clothing that were presented during the last Milan Fashion Week, such as jackets, pants and tops:
Look who I met there, the brazilian fashion journalist Lilian Pacce who was also checking out the Chiara Ferragni Fall 2017 Collection:
More glitter on the slippers with the famous eye and mouth designs that are already registered trademarks of Chiara Ferragni:
Fashion editor Anna Dello Russo also stopped by to check out the new Chiara Ferragni collection:

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.
• Giuseppe di Morabito: Fall 2017 MFW:

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.

Past and present meet in this beautiful collection with an artistic inspiration and lots of modernity.
Looking from afar it may even look like a print, but the piece is all done in embroidery with beads that create a beautiful embroidered floral print!

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.
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:
One of my favorite pieces of the collection, this beautiful pink skirt:

Another collection that I checked during the Milan Fashion Week was the Fiorinda Bride collection from Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli wedding dresses brand that presented its 2018 collection, with elegant, embroidered and delicate dresses to fulfill the dream of the most romantic brides.
• Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli – 2018 Collection
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.
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.
