The dust coat

Dries Van Noten coat in Not Only Twenty

I love the dust coats   When I was a little girl and went with my mom to my aunt’s lab, I often heard  them talking about the dust coat, as one of the mid-season must-have garment. The mid season does not exist anymore, I haven’t seen the tailleurs (jacket and skirt) in a wool lither than the one used for winter clothing that along …

Spring is in the air

spring air

I feel the spring in the air   Although we are only in February, spring is in the air. Today a beautiful sun has driven away the clouds and the rain. Nothing better to take a walk in my beautiful adoptive city, the sun inspires me to wear a dress with flowers in soft colors … such as those that characterize the spring. The deep …

Tail coat and leopard print

My tail coat and leopard print pants   Having chosen it as one of the must-have of the season, the leopard print could not miss in my closet!   In fact, it was love at first sight for these velvet pants by Dries Van Noten. I know that the velvet isn’t  the best fabric to slim the figure and added to a strong print can …

When a lovely woman…

When a lovely woman kisses you     The other day I was stopped on the doorstep by a lovely woman I did not know personally. A young woman who stops a person over 50, who do not know, giving her a kiss on the cheek, to compliment her is not a beautiful thing? I found her amazing, her way so easy and straightforward to …

A top like a tattoo

  I like tattoos. For spring/summer 2016 several designers have presented sweaters , socks , fuseaux and gloves as if they were body tattoos. I chose the stretch tulle top by Dries Van Noten to wear under the silk jacket.  If it seems too transparent , you can wear it over a  flesh-colored tank top  instead of on a bra. I like also to wear …

  This winter pink is my passion, you know my pink coat, see the post https://notonlytwenty.com/2015/11/crazy-about-the-pink-coat/, that I ware as it was a dress. Today I wear it over a shirt in a little bit different nuances of pink and with the stunning  flower necklace by Dries Van Noten, of which color? Pink, of course. Black pants and, another passion of mine, sandals. The impressive …

The big cold arrived

Milan I can’t resist long away from you. The big cold arrived and today the weather it’s freezing, but I love to wander in Milan even in this climatic conditions. In the morning the city is deserted and it’s a great feeling to be the only person in the usually crowded streets and squares. How can you not love this? It is as if the …

How to wear red and gold all day

    Do you think that red and gold is only for evening? It’s not always like this. Look at this wonderful top by Dries Van Noten, it’s elegant and sophisticated. Perfect for evening, but if you wear it with a cotton, long vest in a natural color you can wear it all day. As you may have guessed I love Dries Van Noten, he’s …

Gipsy style

gipsy style

  I like to feel free and gipsy style represents well this feeling. The skirt I wear is double with a longer, lighter fabric under and over a heavier fabric.  The two skirts have different design and colors. I mixed the two patterns of the skirt with a jacket in similar colors but with different print. As you may have guessed I adore sandals in …
