WTWW: Lili Mill Gladiator Sandal

Each Wednesday we’ll answer the on-going question: “What do I wear with these?”  It’s a question we get quite often here at the shop and we love giving suggestions when helping our customers. 

Today we are styling the gladiator sandal from Lili Mill. Ultra comfortable yet stylish, we think you could wear this in a variety of ways.

Mondays, Maggie Muses: Artist Paolo Ventura

A few weeks ago I had posted about a visit to the shop Nonostante Marras in Milan, Italy. Along with the many things they sell in their boutique, they regularly feature local artists. Back in February I was introduced to artist/photographer Paolo Ventura. Boy, was I smitten.

This Italian born photographer creates scenes that are rich, dreamy and sometimes surreal. He does this by creating miniature sets into which he then places realistic dolls and props ~ then he photographs them. The result is part fantasy, part realism. They are captivating images that take you right into his nostalgic world.

His painstaking attention to detail is what makes them so charming. Ventura creates every detail from start to finish. He chooses the costumes (sometimes designing them himself), makes or sources the props and paints the dioramas. He also becomes part of the picture, putting himself in costumes and posing in front of the camera.

WTWW: Officine Creative “Chabrol” Ankle Boot

WHa to Wear Wednesday - Officine Creative Chabrol
Officine Creative Chabrol

The weather is so unpredictable these days, right? Pouring rain one day and sunny enough not to wear a jacket the next. This is when the perfect ankle boot comes in handy. Light enough for milder days and warm enough to wear when the weather seems more like winter than spring. We like this grey boot from Officine Creative because of its versatility. We love it when our shoes can work for multiple looks!

1. Wear them with a long flowy dress or skirt and a jean jacket.

or

2. Wear them with boyfriend jeans and a sweatshirt.

or

3. Wear them with sleek black trousers and a spring coat.

So what do you think? Which look do you like?

Have a great rest of the week! ~ team re-souL

Mondays, Maggie Muses: A Visit to Nonostante Marras

Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, away from the city center, away from the Brera, the Duomo, and the hustle and bustle of a typical downtown corridor lies a magical and wondrous place. Antonio Marras has created a place full of old world charm and whimsy. It is called Nonostante Marras. Translated as “despite Marras”, this shop is where Antonio showcases his RTW clothing line. But the experience is so much more than shopping a typical designer boutique.

Its humble entry leads you to an open courtyard filled with plants and if you wander for a little bit you will see Snow White and the seven dwarfs standing guard. Glance past the old factory windows, and you get excited at the thought to see what lies inside.

Spring Trend 2015 – Pale Neutrals

Hello everybody! Today we are talking about neutrals. I know, we covered this fashion color trend before in the past, but this season pale neutrals seem to be more important in ready-to-wear fashion than ever before. We like shades of sand, wheat and pearl gray.

Spring and Summer are all about light pale colors such as blush, peach, nude, beige and silver. They are easy to wear if you think of them as an alternative to your winter black or brown. Neutral shoes look great with denim, pastel colors, shades of khaki and camel as well as white.
