Introductory note: Please, wait a minute and don't jugde me from this subtitle. I will get back to it later on.
If you are following Red Rose Cheeks on facebook, you propably already know where I have been the last couple weeks: Italy. Ahh, Italy! What can I say about the beauty of it, the food, the ice-creams, the people? If you have ever been there, you might as well understand what I am talking about. It has this undefined 'aura' that you just feel. On my latest post on facebook I told you (maybe 'warned' is a more suitable word here) that my massive number of photos taken on my trip required a series of different posts, divided by theme. Therefore, we will talk more about Italy in each post.
Now, back on that subtitle. I thought of the word "peoplewatching", inspired by the term birdwatching. I thought of it as an alternative outdoor activity. Heh, I am obviously kidding. Or not? Dou you happen to do this? I like watching people passing by, noticing what they wear or how they wear it, and mentally memorizing the details that I would like to incorporate in my clothing one day. I believe it's something of a "Sartorialist" bug, or of any other streetstyle blog. After all, what's the difference between scrolling down and down a streetstyle page and live-watching people's clothing choices on the street?
So, here it is, my first (of many to follow) post from my vacation in Italy. It is the first partly streetstyle post I have ever done, so go easy on me and let me know what you think!
What I loved about style there? The fact that older people were nicely dressed. With their trench coats (we experienced mini showers all day long) and their hats. I loved the fact that they wore hats. I wanted to photograph every person I saw wearing a hat! And carrying an umbrella. And riding a bicycle... I loved that for the first time I walked in an exlusively Miu Miu boutique (you know my passion for this brand!). By the way, did you know that there is a Gucci museum in Florence? And a Salvatore Ferragamo museum? I also loved the fact that women dress chic, wearing simple clothes but adding just one expensive touch , but not in the obvious, extravagant way; always in muted style. And, of course, I couldn't leave out those two sweeties wearing their colourful raincoats, brightening up the streets of Florence!
