I recently discovered Eleonora Carisi's blog, Jou Jou Villeroy, where her amazing pictures illuminate her sense of style (whimsically Italian), her lifestyle (fun! parties! traveling!), where she likes to eat in Milan (Trattoria Bagutta), her favorite nail polishes (Essie Snap Happy), etc. For me, the way she layers her clothes and puts together dramatic prints, offbeat accessories and punchy hues is especially inspiring. Her most recent looks, including the one above and below, have made me want to run out and buy things I'd never considered before, such as a hot pink satin mini skirt and an over-the-top pair of statement sunglasses. Other signature elements that could nudge me into cool Eleonora-chic territory: a bright red bag, such as this Opening Ceremony tote, and a playful graphic t-shirt. Tanti baci!
