Lights, Camera, Fashion: Spring alla Milanese

Welcome to the real Dolce Vita kids. That's right, as many of you know, Kendallina has temporarily relocated to one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world.... MILANO, ITALIA. 
Things here move at a ... different (and by different I mean sometimes excruciatingly slower) pace, and therefore it's taken me a little longer than I expected to get situated... hence the lack of blogging. But, I am here finally, with apartment, with job, with music, with life intact .... and I finally have a moment to share with you lovelies the ups, downs, fashion, food, and 'special' euro moments that encompass my personal "Dolce Vita"

So to kick it all off let's talk about what this town does best .... zie fashion!

A few weeks ago was Milan Fashion Week and the Fashionistas and Glamazons were out in full force. Unfortunately I have an embarrassing lack of photos from the extravagant event due to the fact it was a terribly busy week for me, but I did manage to get into one fashion show that showcased many young and upcoming designers. 

Kind of cool eh? I love couture in a way because it's more like art than 'wearable fashion'. But with Spring at our heels, many of us ladies are wondering what to pick up on our next splurge to update our wardrobes.... Well there is def some cute stuff out there, but there are too many trends for one post ... so stay tuned for more in-depth fashiony goodness via Italia. But I can't let you go without a few pointers now can I?

Well first off your basic color palates are polar opposties:
Pastels and Neutrals (via Boho Chic)
Two of the bold palates that are really catching my eye this season as "bold" but still classy are both 
Here's some looks to get your palate juices flowin

Alright kids, Mamma's gotta head to bed. 7 hours ahead of you here in Italia .. but fear not, I hath not abandoned you dear readers. More Fashion, Food, and various Shenanigans with a side of Vino Rosso to come.

A presto! Baci! ;)


  1. Great fashion tips, I really like the pairing of the bright blue with the camel. Italy is great, you must be loving it there. When I was in Italy I ate gelato every day, no joke. Enjoy it while you're there :o)

  2. I love that cathedral. It's my favourite and hopefully I'll get to see it one day instead of drooling at pictures of it.

    I should comment on the fashion but I don't know much about it so I guess your blog will come in handy. I've been told that I could use fashion advice. ;)
