I don't speak Italian but I do speak Moschino

I swear I must be half Italian. And I am not referring to my dark hair. I guess I will have to trace my family tree to see if I have any Italian ancestors because there must be a reason why I am so hooked on Italian architecture, culture, kitchen and basically Italian-everything. Not to mention style and fashion...
And "Italian" is exactly how I feel while wearing that particular outfit. I truly love it from head to toe but what's more important it feels 100% "me". I have to admit that I have had this feeling actually for the first time. And it's pretty damn awesome! That Moschino cape and bag are definitely my favourite pieces in my wardrobe right now. Since Jeremy Scott has become Moschino's Creative Director in 2013 I have been observing the development of the brand and collections and, to be honest, taking it all with a pinch of salt. It's all fun and creative but I wouldn't really see myself in a Spongebob dress if you know what I mean. Nevertheless the accessories like bags and belts are still to die for!
While taking these photographs the weather was far from Italian- I was literally freezing and we needed to take pauses for me to grab a jacket and get warm. However, I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do since the location- Vienna City Hall is simply a dream.
I wish you all a wonderful week!

Wang(ing) around

Hi loves! Again, after a long long time I am back. But as january kicks in, the rhythm of my life gets crazy and I am mostly focused on studies. After a really busy week, filled up with exams (say 9 in 4 days!) I finally had a day for myself. Only a day, because starting today I have to go back to studying (exam week in march- here I come!). But as they say "a sunday well spent brings a week of content". So I used the time to simply relax without feeling bad about being unproductive, which is quite a relief after a whole month of being stressed out because of overlapping deadlines. And I finally got my hands on a few books I have been willing to read for while now- "It" by Alexa Chung, "#Girlboss" by Sophia Amoruso and "How to be Parisian wherever you are". I am even thinking of doing a little review here for you guys!
Other than that, as you may have noticed, I picked for that outfit  a piece from the collection of Alexander Wang for H&M. It's been quite a long time since the launch of the collection, but I am curious what do you guys think of it? As I first saw the collection my instant thought was "awful". I am totally NOT into a sporty style as you already know. But after I saw that blouse/dress I couldn't help but to fall in love with it. And at that point it made me rethink my first impression. I realised, that it is a fresh and really original collection, something different and new. I came to conclusion: just because something is not my cup of tea doesn't mean I cannot appreciate it's beauty and value. I think it would be fantastic if more people looked at fashion in a similar way- fashion is art, and only because something seems ugly or needles for us doesn't mean it's true. With a second glipmse, some things may change their look in an unexpected way.
