Corner view "my style"

Ok, I live in Italy, the country of Valentino, Versace, Armani, etc, I love to walk in Via Condotti and to look at the shop's windows...and to laugh at the prices...Las week, on one of that windows I saw a crocheted scarf...350 euros on sale!!!!Heeeheeeeee!!!
My style? Mostly white shirts (love silk ones), jeans and Timberland style shoes. Where I buy them? Sometimes at my favorite outlet: the weekly market. For the shoes, well, they must be comfortable, since I walk a lot and hate to have sore feet, so I go too to the outlets also. Yes, I am a thrifty style gal!

Yay! I like to find things in common with people; looking at the crazy prices make me think, 'Why do people do that?!' It's crazy. I could do so much more with that kind of money. I could eat organic, for one.
But, if I were so filthy rich, I guess I will be saying something different, and spending my money like water...

Hi Juanita,

How have you been these days?

Nice sweater, have you made the V-collar style yourself? It looks very elegant with your white shirt!

Yes, my impression about Italy is that people are so much into fashion and care very much about how they look - and they do look neat! However right there the originality fades away... when all around you wear the same Gucci bags, and Chanel glasses, or scarfs for 350e it starts being so main-stream. So I'm totally for your look. The best look is the clothes you feel comfortable in... (OK, I could also save a crazy 80es outfit for a occasional costume party :P, those are in abundance in thrift stores!)
