Alberta Ferretti | Spring 2000 campaign

Stella Tennant by Paolo Roversi | Alberta Ferretti Spring/Summer 2000 campaig

Alberta Ferretti, one of my most treasured designers, she is even more special now as the world of dreamers and creatives who believe in pure fashion fantasy seems to be shrinking to the selected few. I chose her to be my next personality for the blog's Fashion weeks series because I love everything she does... The pure magic (and fit) of her clothes, her taste and the timeless elegance of her designs. It's all about the quiet luxury and beauty in its essence, the creativity channeled through the past and the present, the impalpable celebration of sensuality and femininity, but also the inner strength of a woman portrayed through her perfect, most beautiful self.

I believe that the Spring/Summer 2000 campaign starring Stella Tennant is the one that reflects all these qualities. More over, it is photographed by Roversi, not only one of my favourite photographers, but also the one who was able to capture the the sense of fragility and strength, the exquisite iridescent lightness, and the true aethetitcs of the Ferretti's beautiful Universe.

Outfit du jour: little white dress

Reiss Natalia Little White Dress | via Fashioned by Love

I wonder, I wonder, how many little white dresses a girl can have... Once upon a time I naively thought that one would be enough... So I wrote about it. Well, since then there were more posts and edits, and definitely more LWDs that became mine, including the latest addition from Reiss. Oh, how I adore this little flirty frock! I saw the cut (such an elegant, classic cut, and a bit like Lanvin Resort 2014)), the fabric, the back detail and fell in love. Then I noticed my name written on it. Literally: the style is called "Natalia" - not "Natalie" or "Natasha", but "Natalia". Selfishly, I adore it when beautiful things bear my name, they make me feel special. A good fashion omen in many ways... 

This time I paired my treasure with Prada's, but it looks amazing with all kinds of shoes and can be worn as a day dress (you know, a good old espadrille wedge and roomy raffia tote or basket) or a very special evening number that already got me so many compliments and looks that I couldn't help smiling...

Olivia Burton magic

Olivia Burton Wonderland dusty pink & gold vintage style midi dial watch | via Fashioned by Love

I blogged about these watches. I interviewed Lesa Bennet and Jemma Fennings, the duo who design them. Naturally, it was only a matter of time before I've got one of the Olivia Burton time pieces for myself and I must admit, it feels so good. You know, that forgotten, but very special moment when you take your watch at the end of a long day, put it on your bedside table and it sits there, so beautiful, the handles tick-tacking in a hypnotising motion. 

My Wonderland in dusty pink and gold came from the TwistedTime, an online boutique that sells an exquisite carefully curated collection of very stylish watches and sunglasses (I've got my eye on Thelma sunnies and Pebble and Moneypenny watches at the moment). Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are looking for a unique accessory that truly reflects your personality. 

Mine really made me feel complete in some peculiar and happy way. Must be some kind of Olivia Burton magic... It makes me smile.
