GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS!

For the 8th of March I would describe three kind of woman that impressed me for some of their manners or personality sides. I will take some example from the tv series that I most like and I will describe the kind of woman that I like and that inspired me for my life.

Here I would explain which kind of style I usually wear and which are my sources of inspirations. I like to watch tv series in my free time and of course sometimes I take example from the woman characters for some dress, shoes or work suit. I like to watch crime series and legal police procedural series.

Chief Johnson portrayed by Kyra Sedgwick during an after investigation breackfast in her office.

I like a lot Kyra Sedgwick when she join the role of Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson in The Closer because I am a lover of her flowered and colored dress and I literally love her black tote bag, I have a bag like that and I use it every day for every occasion, I think that is a must have for a woman. I also like to wear dresses and skirt like Brenda because I think that a girl must always preserve some elegant and womanly details in her look, so in my free time when I go out to stroll in the city or only to go to take some food at the supermarket I wear dress and heels. I also love her “always happy and honeyed Georgia cadence” that is Brenda’s trademark and her favorite catch phrase is “thank you, thank you so much” with her nice and delicate voice but she mean “bye bye I hope you’ll go to hell damn idiot” she is always kind and gentle but she always said what she wanna said and she is elegant and beautiful but also strong and powerful, she is determinated without renouncing to her woman and sweet side. She loves routine, and she’s work addicted following every aspects of her investigations very closely and excluding everything and everyone around her. She never forget to be sweet but she’s always strong, there is many women in the police series but I think that Sedgwick character’s is became so popular because she’s different from the others.

I also like to watch Rizzoli&Isles because I am a huge fan of Angie Harmon the actress that plays the role of Detective Jane Rizzoli, I watched also Women’s Murder Club another series with the same actress that run the role of Detective Lindsay Boxer, she debuted in the crime tv series with the role of ADA Abbie Carmichael in Law&Order. In my opinion it doesn’t matter which role Harmon plays or at which age she never age and has a physical appearance that it’s beautiful and shine in everyone of hers versions. It’s like the black, she never age.

I like the character of those actress because they are always strong, all of those women are ” I know what I want and who I am” women. They are determinated, on career, and they reflect some aspects of my personality because I am determinated and I like to be strong and gain my goals alone without the help of the others people, sometimes being also a little bit rude but not too much. I also love their fashion style, opposite of the womanly dresses and heels of the Chief Johnson but anyway elegant with their work suits of pants and blazer over a white shirt or a more sporty t-shirt, I like that style because I usually use that fashion format at work, and of course I like her not too much make up that she use, black mascara with black eye pencil and eyeliner plus transparent or pearl lipgloss. In addition to that I like her natural wavy hairstyle, elegant styled but without becoming too artificial and high maintenance, it’s fitted for the character and it’s elegant and beautiful for everyone in the reality because it’s adapted to every occasion.

Finally I would describe my absolute favorite character: Lilly Rush the detective of the Homicide Division on Cold Case series portrayed by Kathryn Morris. Since I was young I watched every episodes and growin I decided to wear like Det. Rush because I always liked black, grey and navy blue of her trousers and blazers in contrast of the bright color of her classical shirt like lilac, white, pearl grey, baby pink. But she also wear black on black or grey on navy blue, brown, bordeaux, that emphasize her fair skin and blonde hair with clear blue eyes and I am a fair skin girl with mixed blue, grey, green eyes and dust blonde hair with copper highlights.

I also like the personality of the character because she comes from a dysfunctional family situation and a rough area of her city but she is very balanced and rational with a strong and independent personality that gives her the possibility to obtain more success in her police career but at the same time she has the necessary compassion to work at the cold cases and deal with the victims and families with genuine empathy. I appreciate also her passion to seek truth at every costs because for me in the people life truth is one of the most important things. She lacks on the personal relationship, and she became a cop after being victim of a crime during her first years, I appreciate that, because she suffer a trauma but she was able to process the trauma in a positive and constructive way choosing to became a police office and not becameing an unrealized depressed person locked in her past experience, like a flower that bloom after the cold winter.

So to summarize I describe three fictional characters that impressed and inspired me a lot for their fashion style, aspects, attitude, life decision, personal life or with a significant trademark in their personality portrait.

HIDEOUS CHRISTMAS GIFT

Risultati immagini per CHRISTMAS TREE IN MILAN

Where to start? Well for Christmas me and my middle school old friends decided to make a Secret Santa’s Gift Exchange. 

On First day of December we have dinner at Pino’s pizzeria near my home and we write our names on papers, we insert they in my Hepburn’s style hat and we place our hand inside to catch one piece of paper. During the 20th of december we made a reunion and we will exchange our gift.

My usual style at work or for free time is a suit of black office pants with black blazer, a bright white shirt with a black tie under a black gilet and a pair of patent black decollete kitten heel shoes. For work I use a leather black tote bag and and a pc black bag. Something recurring? For example that I wear always black… not in other colors. Eeeh… so fun. For casual occasions I like to wear elegant tube dress or suits of blazer and tube skirt but always with black notes and decollete shoes. I never wear things like leggins, jeggins, sneakers, crop top, sports wear, jumpsuit. I wear only classical style garnments. So how is possible that one of my old friends gave me a O Bag? They know me well but not in that case.

Do you know what is O Bag? And don’t you feel a little bit surrounded by them?

They are everywhere, in markets, in streets, in places, in coffe, in shops, at work, in bookstore, at meetings, at at speciality courses and exams but I really have no idea about how that is possible and why the people may like them!? I’m oppressed, completely surrounded!

One of the ugliest aliens decides to invade our town, no better our world, and it goes around in the city hanging on to women’s arms of every age and city.

This is the O Bag, and that’s my Christmas gift, I think that it is one of the ugliest shopper that was realized. Obviously this is only what I think it’s not an official critic, I don’t want to discuss about the personal opinions or the personal preferences in fashions tendence…

One voice come out from my stomach every times that I saw one of that bags and I screw…How the hell is possible that a so hideus bag is one of the most bought and loved bag by the women? How it’s possible that those bags are so appreciated?

To let the desperation apart, the O Bag phenomenon make me reflect so much about the fashion style and the consumerism. At today many consumers don’t pay attentions about what is nice loocking and what is only a fashion tendence that pass over in a short period. Many people buy unecessary and kitsch things that are bought only because they are good advertised by well studied marketing strategies. I mean that in the world we have things that are good looking and things that only follow the tendence of the moment.

What a kind of kitsch nightmare after Christmas…

The O Bag is the demostration of how a company may increase their earnings with the impositions of a good marketing strategy, they transform a bag that may be used only in the beaches in a bag for every occasion and season. Because I’m an accountant working as a sales commercial representative, I have to admitt it in their honor that they did a well done work with marketing strategy.

You have only to change the accessories and “le jeu son fait” you’re ready for every occasion…but the quality of the bag is very poor: a piece of silicone and the handle are made by rope! You pay a lot for that?! Some accessories placed on a piece of silicone and rope? No way I prefer to spend the same money for an elegant black leather tote bag that maybe used in every occasion, because if a thing is good looking it will be appreciated everytime for its design, materials, quality and seasonless style.

I think that the recent past years inexorable destroied the concept of good accessories and clothings, we saw waves and waves of commercial trash style clothes. The bad waves of “use and waste” style are advancing unstoppable, say goodbye to the durable seasonless accessories and clothes…

I desire to suggest you to reflect about the opportunity to try to be more demanding about what is good and what is only commercial…Remember that you have the right to deserve beautiful things! Please I pray you to not be satisfied of what the fashion vogue let in front of you, don’t aspire to be a copycat of a million of others people that walk in the streets! Find your style useing your eyes, your brain and your heart!

Please mantain an indipendent critical sense about the fashion, an indipendent style, an indipendent think, don’t be only fashion…be fashion following your personal preference. Who knows, you may also create a tendence…your personal tendence and some others may appreciate your style and follow you, be yourself and you will be fashion!

FEELING YANKEE

This is a special post because celebrate the first time that make me feel a really Yankee girl! That happened during my third travel in the States when I go to Boston: during a hot and lazy afternoon when I was strolling around the city streets looking the shop expositions, block after block I felt me very thirsty so I stopped at a Starbucks as always but that time when I went out with my Venti paper cup full of Valencia Orange Refresher I felt me like an American for the first time. I was walking fast because I was in hurry to take the metro to return at the hotel and when I was walking on the sidewalk with my Starbucks paper cup for take away I casually threw a look at the window of a shop and I saw my image reflected: All Star, jeans and t-shirt plus the Starbucks cup make me felt totally a part of the American style and ways! Finally in all of my life there are no experience that make me feel a part of a population or of a country but a take away paper cup made me felt very American, like a real Yankee, what a strange and fantastic kind of sensation!
