Tiresome Tuesday

I am exhausted today! So, I am trying to catch up on some much needed R&R this afternoon.

Is It Spring Yet?

Craving spring weather, spring flowers, spring colors, and spring fashion!

I need some yellow, orange, pink, green, and robin's egg blue in my life!

Like Mother, Like Daughter

I am enjoying a wonderful weekend with my Mom here in Boulder.

What could make this weekend even better... we are playing around Boulder with my best friends and their moms as well!

Cheers to spending the weekend with the one you aspire to be!

Wedding Sparkle

I am currently swooning over the idea of having sparklers at weddings instead of throwing rice, birdseeds, or flower petals at happy brides and grooms.

Miami Glam

I've never been to Miami but right now I am inching to get my booty on a non-stop plane to South Beach. I want to escape the cold of Colorado and enjoy the spring break atmosphere!

Unfortunately, I still have four weeks until my spring break. No harm in daydreaming though (courtesy of Elle Sweden).

Ciao Bella!

Eva Fontanelli opens up on The Sartorialist...

Current profession?
Editor of Elle Italia

Which cultures have influenced you lately?

Since I’m currently traveling in Morocco, I find myself wrapping scarves mixed with jewelry around my head like the old Berber women—I look forward to wearing long gypsy dresses, sequined pieces, and pastel colors for the spring.

What are the most interesting pieces you’ve picked up when traveling?

An old, colorful Peruvian bag and an Argentinean pendant.  I really cherish the pendant; it’s a real gaucho medallion in silver and mother-of-pearl with the initials of someone very special.

Favorite weekend escape?           

Pietrasanta in Tuscany, but if I had more time I would go to Careyes in Mexico.

What do you consider your ideal environment to work and create?

In the craziness of my mess: in my hotel room, in my closet and in my bags.
My assistant hates me because when I say, “Don’t worry I’ll take care of the clothes and put everything in place” I actually just strew everything around…

Where do you seek visual inspiration most often?

I look to books, landscapes, and images– Tim Walker photographs are my favorite. I love the way he contrasts the real world with fantasy, the old and the new, the surreal proportions and ability to play with nature.  His photograph ‘It rained outside and we camped inside,’ reminds me of when I was a child and always built little cabanas in my room.

Any particular movies?

Pretty Woman—or I suppose that’s the most romantic, so I would say Amarcord.

What materials would you like to experiment with?

Nature’s treasures: shells, wood, and leaves.

Daily reads?

Vogue.it for the horoscopes, a selection of newspapers, and of course Italian Elle.

How do you approach getting dressed?

I don’t think too much of what is appropriate or not, I just dress to feel special.

When do you feel most feminine?

When I wear something special, sexy and fun at the same time—my favorite collections are Moschino and Alberta Ferretti.

Never leave the house without?

Red lipstick! It adds a spark when I’m running around all day and makes me feel more sexy and confident.  I like a shade from Dolce & Gabbana, the Scarlett Johansson one.

Which shops you could spend the whole day in?

Wait and See in Milan on via Santa Marta, and lots of vintage shops.

Wish List

Right now I am coveting this dress from Zara's spring 2012 collection. I can't get enough of the sky-high slits, the loose airy fit, and the pastel candy-cane colors. I am ready to spring into spring!

What's my go to hairdo for class, work, and dressing up? Braids, of course.

Springtime Stella

I am digging these Stella McCartney spring 2012 ad campaign prints. Natalia Vodianova looks jaw-droppingly stunning amist the cartoon flowers. I also can't help but picture Gwyneth Paltrow as she rocked (and I mean rocked!) the dress in the second print ad. And, can I have those sunnies in the third ad, pretty please!?

Can you tell that I'm dying for spring?

Lookin' For A Good Time

I'm off to Denver tonight for dinner and a concert... this week just won't slow down (in the best way)!

I'm heading into the music... how about you?

I Carry Your Heart With Me

Happy Valentine's Day!

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
- e. e. cummings
