(Mary) Janes Addiction

I'm a shoe addict. But after many many pairs, I've realised that Mary Janes are probably my favourite type of shoe. No matter if they are flats, mid heels, or really high matter the colour. I'm addicted to Mary Janes!

So, when I went shopping on Saturday and saw these ridiculously pretty, comfortable and affordable black patent Mary Js I had to buy them. They are a basic that I'm gonna love wearing (although I already have other three pairs of black flat Mary Js, haha).

Have you got any favourite shoe??

Isn't it lovely?

This is a night for dreams coming true, for Americans and from us in the rest of the world...Freedom again, please!!

I'm staying up all night, drinking tea and coffe and eating cookies. I hope to open the champagne bottle I have in the fridge this morning!

More good news

Remember when the legendary brand Rochas announced that they were not going to keep their clothing line? Olivier Theysken's last show was so sad, after a few years of spectacular creations by the Belgian artist for la maison Rochas.

But after not a long time, and despite the fact that, yes, there's a big crisis...Rochas is back in the fashion world!!!

Who said crisis??

Apparently, Procter and Gamble and some other company decided to invest again in Rochas for more prêt-à-porter collections.

I'm pretty happy about that, because it's always sad to say goodbye to a brand who has been there for years and years, especially a brand like Rochas, which I personally like, because it's always had a really feminine, ethereal and cute spirit.

But I also think that after having someone like Theyskens as head creator, the new designer will have to work really hard, because there's gonna be a big responsability here, and also many many comparison to the genious that Theyskens is...remember his dream collections for Rochas??

I still dream of this's one of my favourite dresses ever. Thanks, Olivier...

So, who is the new first designer for Rochas?

Apparently, it's gonna be Marco Zanini, who has worked for Versace for many years, and was the guy who revived Halston.
He is pretty good. But will he adapt his creativity to the soul of Rochas (I think so!) or will he do something completely new and different to avoid the comparisons??
Anyways...We'll see soon.

Good luck, Marco!!
