After years of reading the most important fashion magazines, one year ago i finally decided that writing about fashion,design and

It’s starting out waiting to be a fashion blogger and long the way,day a after day, it evolved into a Blog read every day from many people all
around the world,and this certainly made me really happy, especially because it allowed me to be chosen from the most important and
influential Fashion Magazine in the world ( VOGUE Italy) for a fashion internship,that led me today to collaborate and write for a several
fashion brands. Now my Blog is still just really personal, it’s about what i love to wear,things that inspire me and i find and adore on the
internet, from a pair of heels to a great street style picture and random stuff i fell like sharing.
