Monthly Favourites - September / October 2013

Hey everyone!

So, as I've been buying tons of stuff since I've got here, I felt like I should show you my favorites..
Here there are the ones I'm most proud of, tell me what you think about this stuff! Comment & Subscribe!! :D

Cheers,
Effie!


Super cool pair of red Converse (and super Comfortable)

Nice dress! It's a pity is not the right season anymore..

Super nice top that I'd actually been wearing a lot. So cool with a pair of black leggins and either sandals or combat boots.


Nail polish-- I love all of them, I've been wearing the first two at Homecoming and they last so long..
Love China Glaze Nail Polish! The second ones are from Mavala. So beautiful, I wish there was more inside.

I love candles! I've bought this one from Target, it reminds me so much of Italy! 

Bought from Target for 1$ - you really need it as people in this country don't know what sleeping in the dark means.

Favorite pair of shoes from +dswshoewarehouse  Madden Girl. For only 15 $, comfortable and worn a lot! 

Bag by APT9  +Kohl's
I used it (and I'm still using it a lot) - resistent and can be combined with almost everything.

+Yankee Candle I love their candles! Absolutely my favorite. Everybody should have at least one. So sad we don't have them back in Italy, because I'm in love with all their scents.


Victoria's Secret perfume Sexy Little Things NOIR. Only 10$ and so good!

Socks by +Target, love all their patterns. Wish I had bought more..



So people, what do you think about my stuff?

Glimpses of California

Hello Everyone!
As the end of my second month in California is coming to an end, I'd like to share with you some glimpses of this fantastic State.
I can't believe that sunny places like this actually exist, it still hasn't rained!
I'm enjoying so much this experience so long, I hope to let you experience my same feelings through this post.

Enjoy!

Starbucks-- Starbucks everywhere!

My first American breakfast

Good sushi - it's a pity I can't eat it.

You can see this was during my first days here because I still haven't discovered junk food.

L.A. Fashion Week part 2

Do you remember I was at L.A. Fashion Week - Driven by Design last week and that I promised you photos from the last 4 runways? 
As my iPad died, I can only show you photos from Dena Burton runway (one of my favourite, together with Brian BK Phillips, but I don't have photos for him..).
Her collection was really fresh and summery, and I could see my country in it, with the sea of Ligury and Southern France.


The girl on the top photos in a fantastic guitarist. And she's beautiful too. Amazing performance.



















This piece of clothing was absolutely my favourite. Colorful and young, something to wear everyday.


This was the sundae prepared by Ice Cream Sundae Divas. 
Absolutely delish!


This is me interviewing BK Phillips. He's such a wonderful and talented designer! I loved his collection. 

That's all for now, 
I'll upload later photos from BK Phillips collection, from my host mother website Society 805

Cheers!
Effie.

LA Fashion Week


Hello Everyone!

Today I'm covering LA Fashion Week for you from the L.A. Mart. 
The place has got a fantastic Media Room with furniture offered by Veneman DCollection (and has got free wi-fi too, which never hurts).

















Paula Bennett






Paula Bennett represents the real L.A. Style. 
She used lots of Summer colours, as bright red and sable green, with a Makramè fabric. 
Really enjoyed it.

Sarah Horne 








Sarah Horne decided for a more classical and elegant style, 
She enriched her black dresses with lots of gold jewelry.

Karlita Design




I've seriously loved Karlita Design accessories, gold on black, with bronze details, really simple.
Simplicity is better than opulence! 

Stay with me for the next designer: Thai Nguyen

Photo by Thay Nguyen S/S 14 collection.

I'll leave you with A photo of me this morning, getting ready to take over L.A.


Cheers!
Effie.
