Rome- not exactly the capital of fashion, but an astonishingly beautiful city nevertheless. Elegant, mysterious, full of myths and legends, the home of probably the most famous and influential civilization to ever live on earth: the Romans.
But history is not our subject today, fashion is. And fashion in Rome starts right from the Fiumicino airport, where the walls are filled with eye catching, classy banners. Fendi (above) was my favourite.
Piazza di Spagna is a second heaven to any avid shopper. From high fashion to accessible brands, restaurants, small boutiques, you can find literally everything there. A feast to the eyes too, I was paying more attention to the amazing architecture more than the shops sometimes, to be honest.
One of my biggest regrets from the Rome trip (as some of you may know) is that my CF card broke so I lost the pictures from the first three days. One of those days had been dedicated solely to shopping, therefore I had snuck some pictures inside these shops too. Unfortunately,we didn’t have time in our last evening to get inside all the shops again, but we went to Spagna again so I could at least snap pictures of my favourite displays
What I liked a lot about these shopping streets was the way everything blended in. There was no contrast between old and new (the buildings and the shops) the way it is in my country and no shops had loud, neon signs to desperately scream for attention. It was all so…classy.
Less expensive, but just as amazing <3 5 story Zara. One of the only shops I shopped from. I know I should try and vary a bit more, but I really wasn’t in a shopping mood those days so I went in straight where I knew I’d find what I needed.
What I Bought
Bag from Guess, fake fur muffler (?) from H&M
Before I Decay Brightening primed and Make up Forever HD foundation (that I’ll review soon because it’s a godsend)
Suit coats, both from Zara. I had my eyes on the grey one since November but it was way overpriced for a suit coat so I patiently waited for the sales. The black one is made from a really soft and comfy material, that’s why it looks so weird in the photo. I love it.
Shirts from Zara. I’m in love with the black one, it has foxes on it :3
I think this is my absolute favourite item. I can’t wait for summer to come. It’s a way more intense blue irl (it’s from Zara too)
This skirt is actually a deep purple, but because of the bad lighting it came out like this Another item I wanted since last year.
Pants because I needed a pair
And my most beloved accessories, thigh high socks (if they can be considered that)
This palette is amazing, quality wise. I don’t know what kind of black magic Too Faced have done, but these eyeshadows don’t smudge nor crease at all, without using any base/primer. Deeply impressed.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed!
