On the New Year… Eleonora Carisi

How will you mix things up in the year ahead?


I’m excited to trade in my fluorescent colors for pastels; pale yellow coats with white collars, rounded skirts, and towering wedges. It’s time to feel fresh and beautiful like a flower!  I’m not so into labels, but those steel toe shoes in Louis Vuittons’s spring collection are made for a confident woman walking toward her goals…


This year I also want to experiment with my dark side and wear oversized Boy London print sweaters, Doc Martens, and white socks; a bit of 80’s punk!


Any successful style experiments that you’ll carry into 2012?


I wanted a 60’s look, but never knew the result would be so great to wear every day!  I experimented with high-waisted bell-bottom trousers and silk tops.  I like trousers in autumn shades mixed with round collar shirts in nude… I ended up with an entire collection of them.  Those collars are actually very fashionable right now!

    she looks amazing ! yet, it comes off as her own, very original style, and she is astonishingly beautiful to boot.

    The dress is fabulous – I cant believe she pulls off the socks with this outfit but it just works – wish I had the guts to experiment more – Think some people are made to set fashion and some are just followers as they are worried of looking odd.

    There is something about blue nail polish…’s weird, but sexy. I love her animal print fitted skirt (I’m inspired to get one now), but am still not a fan of sock with high heals………She is obviously Italian, the overabundance of gorgeous hair always is a dead give-away.

    Pretty ! Would definately love to see some photos of her wearing the Doc Martens next year :)

    My favorite outfit is the one with the snake print skirt

    such a shame.. I just can see the first picture! good snapshot by the way! but I can’t figure out how she’s going to change this look for a 80′s punk look…

    Great idea about wearing old past look ! I think I will do the same. And she has a great style obviously !

    Eleonora has something really elegant and chic that I particularly adore, I think just being in front of her must be impressive as she looks very charismatic and confident.
    Here I can’t say which look of her I like the most as I absolutely am fond of ALL of them!

    I’ve looked through the five or six most recent pages of this blog and although I find the pictures themselves pretty enough I think it’s a shame the body shape of almost all persons in the photographs are a) the same and b) thin/really thin. As I understand the point of the blog is not to show models but rather to show pretty clothing and well combined colours and fabrics, so why not show people of more sizes in good looking fashion?

    I love that she is wearing socks with almost every look, and that she has them on with the floral wedge sandals every time. That is one of my favourite trends from this past year! Her sense of style is effortless and natural.

    I remember that python-printed Chloe skirt from the preview! In fact it’s very thick satin silk which makes the piece even more amazing and a WOW-factor! When it’s on it may leave speechless anybody!

    Scott, beautiful photos as always. I find it annoying to have to wait till all the files on the page load and begin to be readable. I would rather you not do this kind of presentation as a rule, since I like to check your blog out every day, sometimes twice. I don’t have time to wait.
