Essential Bottega Veneta Fall 2013

Impossible to resist to the charm of Bottega Veneta.
It is among one of the ultra chic brands that have a timeless allure.
Top stylist as my dear friends Corinne, Mariapia and Nadica
all love and use the key pieces of each collection.
We all agree that black is back and this looks are right on...

Year after year Tomas Maier strikes divine collections.
I admit I got the spell and felt in love with the past few seasons.
What I love is the continuity of the design, you can easly build up
a wardrobe using your favorite items even from a few seasons ago
without looking passè.
I also admire the quality and style, as for the look
 I soften it up using less or no make up.
I love to add a few of my personal accessories
and I find these jewelry to be saavy and collectables.

All the jewelry above are great in the fall or winter with a cashmere sweater
or an evening dress. Also terrific in the spring or summer with a chiffon
dress or a simple white tank.
What to get is the question?

Ultra feminine shoes, love the combination of blue and black.
Love to wear them with a JBrand and a turtleneck
or with a chic black pencil skirt.

Eternal gloves, superb quality.

The must have clutch. Timeless.
Priced around 1150 euros 1650 Dollars
it is one of the best investment bags ever.
You can wear nothing but this will do the all outfit.

Anotgher wish list item the ballet flat shoes
Very very comfortable and so classy.
The colors are divine, also in teal blue.
Perfect for work, week ends, cocktails
or to run around all day.

Last but not least is the Intrecciato tote bag or cabat
must have if you plan to be addicted to Tomas.
This season the colors are Nero and Shadow.
The prices rival a Birkin but there are a great investment
for truly a timeless chic bag.
Think everyday, think style, think practical.

My favorite web spot is
Here Tomas shows his personal favorites.

Of course a visit to the magnificent stores are worth it.
The Montenapoleone, Milan Boutique is superb.
The assortment of jewelry is impressive.

Make an appointment with a sales associate
and try on many different items:
the cuts of the garments
are intricate so you need to find what suits you the best.
When you find your models they will be amazing sexy and chic.
Get the cabat in the new season colors.
Indulge with the clutch in oxydized silver knot.
Walk away with a rock candy size quartz earrings.

Study the collection on-line.
Start with the simple black signature clutch.
Indulge in a rock crystal antique silver brooch, you can double it as a pendant
by adding a velvet black ribbon.
Or a pair of earrings that you will wear everyday.
Select a pair of Bottega's stunning shoes that suits you the best.
Mix and match with H&M black basics, like leggings, mohair cardigans,
simple black dresses, teal sweaters, simple black jeans.
