Back from Istanbul to Milano, my boyfriend and I rushed to the Scala, Milan’s very famous opera house, to see Romeo & Juliette as it was one of the very last time they were playing this opera this season & I really wanted to see it.
For this occasion, I decided to wear the Hollywood jewellery that my mother found on eBay and got me for Christmas one year. They are indeed jewellery that were used on Hollywood film sets (so are completely fake.. no, these are not 4 carat diamonds unfortunately!) and I just love this idea, i.e. that some star maybe wore them while performing!! Unfortunately, I do not know for which movie exactly those ones were used for but I always imagine myself and feel a bit like Marylin Monroe in Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend.. or sometimes Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffanys, depending on my mood ;)
To go with these, I decided to do myself a bun (to show off the earrings) and wear a deep blue make-up to go with the blue sapphire tone of the jewellery.
For the rest, I decided to dress chic of course but casual. I like when people’s attention focus on one thing at a time. Last night was the time of the jewellery, not my shoes. Plus, I also like this combinaison to wear something a bit exceptional, and then dress down, as if it is so natural to wear these ;)
Speak with you tomorrow for more adventure!
