Turin Style – part 2

Turin StyleAnd on with the second part of my trip to visit Daniela in Italy. Last week I called my post Fashion in Turin. And that didn’t really cover the subject. Therefore, I thought of Turin Style for this second post. Better?

Above: on Saturday Dan took me to a palace: La Reggia di Venaria. It was bloody hot that day, so I decided to join Dan in wearing a dress. View Post

Fashion in Turin – part 1

Fashion in TurinYes dear readers, another trip to Italy for only one reason: to show you the fashion in Turin… Right.. I knew you were not going to believe that haha. Of course the main reason is seeing Dan, whom I met through her blog The Pretty Cute. And she discovered my blog at the same time. We both have an extreme love for Max Mara and its sub brands, so a visit to Dan, means a visit to the outlet of Max Mara. Which is in Turin. View Post

Street Style in Turin, Italy

Street Style Turin Oct 2015 (20)_LRThe pity with this post is that I didn’t get enough good photos to do a proper Street Style post. Not because there weren’t enough gorgeous looking women around but because I was in the wrong spot for taking pictures most of the time. And as I was in Turin to spend time with Daniela, I didn’t want to put too much time and effort into it.

As Street Style photographers know, it takes skill, time and dedication to get the right pictures. So be it, you will have to do with these pictures. You’ll get to see the good ones first and as you go through the post, the quality gets poorer. But I can tell you… Italians do know how to dress. View Post

Turin and Daniela

Turin with Dan Oct 2015 (45)_LRWhat can I say? Visiting Dan in Turin is such a delight. The flight is only  1 1/2 hour, cost just over 100 euro (return flight) and takes me to a friend who is always so happy to see me. As I am so happy to see her. Amazing that such a deep friendship can come from just blogging. English is not our native language and expressing yourself is so important to get to know the real person. Nevertheless there is a soul connection which covers the blancs in our conversation. View Post

Shopping at the Max Mara outlet
