Glitter Overload


Wearing lots of shiny things all at once is really not my thing. I can't even recall when I last wore paillettes (if ever). I actually prefer everything I to be opaque (fabric, lipstick, cars, cake). Despite all this, when getting dressed for an early evening cocktail at the MIX in Las Vegas yesterday, I decided to wear (almost) all of my sparkling things at the same time.

Should Tall Girls Wear High Heels?




Being 5'9", this question has been on my mind since I got old enough to even think about wearing high heels. Even though I didn't start to wear heels in public until years later, at the tender age of 10 I was already lusting for a pair of high-heeled golden leather dancing shoes, which I eventually talked my mother into buying for me, but I was only allowed to wear them to my dancing classes, which made me quite frustrated given how great I thought I looked in them.

A Gipsy Life


I have been travelling up and down between California and Nevada for two months now. We have brought 5 suitcases with us from Italy, but the number has now somehow escalated to 7 - probably thanks to my Vegas shopping spree and some stuff we picked up from a storage that we rented at the end of our previous trip. We now bear a striking resemblance to a travelling gipsy family with our 7 suitcases, a countless number of smaller bags, a box full of our food essentials (like olive oil, agave syrup and Weetabix cereals), a pissed cat, and, at various stages of our journey, some friends and my mother in the back seat. It's not at all embarrassing to pull up to a hotel valet and load the bellman with 24 different items. Not. At. All.

Heels To Breakfast


There is something about roaming the streets at dawn after a long night out on the town that makes you feel like you are the only one who gets a peek into some imponderable, impalpable secret of the city. It makes you feel superior in a way - just to think that everyone else is in bed and have no idea what it looks like with its streets completely deserted, its shops and bars closed, and the first rays of the sun shining through the morning clouds onto the cobblestones.

Wear Lace When It's Hot


Las Vegas has long been one of my favourite holiday destinations. In the last five years I have been there at least a dozen times, stayed in almost every hotel on the Strip and visited almost every attraction there is to visit, but I still tremendously enjoy going there, and I don't even gamble or go to parties really. (I have to admit to the shameful habit of playing part of my shoe money at the Sex and the City machine, though...)
