5 Prada Bags To Delete From Your Wishlist



In a blogosphere full of posts about the most beautiful articles of a certain brand, I want (and I want to emphasize this) to be against the trends and rank the five most ugly Prada's bags for Spring/Summer 2019 (I'm sorry, but this time it's up to the Milanese fashion house). Starting with the #5 and finishing with the first place, are you ready to see them?

5

https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.borsa_shopping_small_in_nylon.1BG266_2CCJ_F0002_V_OOO.html


This nylon shopping bag it's not bad, not really ugly. However, it reminds me a lot of the thermal bags used for the Easter Monday (since we're almost there!). And then, for the price it has, seriously...


4
https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.prada_twin_bag_in_nylon.1BY300_2CIN_F0T5R_V_OO1.html

Actually, I like this kind of bags, and twin bags in general. The problem is this print. Or rather, the colours. They really are a punch in my face, and when I look at it, I can't help but think about my great-grandma couch.

3
https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.zaino_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BZ042_2CIC_F0002_V_OOO.html

OK, we're on the podium. The third place goes to the Prada Invites backpack (just a little spoiler: the podium is all about this collection...) which reminds me of anything except a backpack. Maybe if they had called it another way I wouldn't have minded, but if I buy a backpack, especially at this price, I expect it to be big enough to put my cell phone inside it, at least.



2

The choice of the first and second place was very hard to make, because the last two bags fight hard to win. However, I had to choose. The second place, in my opinion, among the most ugly bags by Prada, goes to this one:
https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.borsa_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BC085_2CIC_F0002_V_OO6.html
I accept everything: it's a design bag, it's nice (sure, but we're talking about items with a certain price range, so I wouldn't buy a product on sympathy), I accept all your opinions. Anyway, returning to the "reminds me of..." game, this bag reminds me of rubber tubes used for water aerobics.



1

OK. For the first place award I'd add a little suspance, if you don't mind.

























https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.body_bag_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BC086_2CIC_F0002_V_OO4.html
 Nope. I can't think that it costs €1400, I dread to even say it; with all due respect to the architect Kazuyo Sejima who designed both this bag and the one which won the silver medal (I do believe that you understood that) but, honestly, this is my association...


 Our Prada's ugliest bags top 5 is over! Obviously all of these are my personal opinions, you could agree with me or not; in the end, different strokes for different folks! I hope I made you smile at least a little with this article! You can find the rest of the (beauiful) pieces from the Prada bag collection here

5 Borse Prada Da Cancellare Dalla Tua Wishlist

In una blogosfera piena di post riguardanti gli articoli più belli di un determinato brand, io voglio (e sottolineo voglio) essere controtendenza e fare una classifica delle 5 borse più brutte per la Primavera/Estate 2019 di Prada (mi dispiace, ma questa volta tocca alla maison milanese). A partire dalla numero 5 a finire con il primo posto, sei pronta a vederle?

5
 
https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.borsa_shopping_small_in_nylon.1BG266_2CCJ_F0002_V_OOO.html

In sè per sè, questa borsa shopping in nylon non è male, non è propriamente brutta. Tuttavia, mi ricorda tantissimo le borse termiche che si utilizzano per la Pasquetta (visto che ci siamo quasi!). E poi per il prezzo che ha, sinceramente...


4

https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.prada_twin_bag_in_nylon.1BY300_2CIN_F0T5R_V_OO1.html

Il fatto che sia una twin bag mi piace, e anche il modello. Il problema è questa stampa. O meglio, i colori. Mi arrivano davvero come un pugno in un occhio, e non riesco a fare a meno di pensare al divano della mia bisnonna quando la guardo.

3
https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.zaino_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BZ042_2CIC_F0002_V_OOO.html


Ok, siamo sul podio. Il terzo posto è dello zaino della Prada Invites (piccolo spoiler: il podio è tutto dedicato a questa collezione, purtroppo...) che tutto mi ricorda fuorchè uno zaino. Forse se l'avessero chiamato in un altro modo non mi sarebbe dispiaciuto, ma se io compro uno zaino, soprattutto a questi prezzi, mi aspetto che ci entri quanto meno il mio cellulare.



2

La scelta del primo e secondo posto è stata davvero ardua, se la combattono davvero alla grande le ultime due borse. Tuttavia, sono dovuta giungere per forza a un compromesso. La seconda borsa, a mio parere, più brutta di Prada, è lei:

https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.borsa_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BC085_2CIC_F0002_V_OO6.html


Puoi dirmi tutto, che è di design, che è simpatica (su questo non ci piove, ma parliamo sempre di fasce di prezzo per cui non acquisterei un prodotto sulla simpatia.), accetto tutto. Ma, sempre per la mia questione delle associazioni, a me questa borsa ricorda i tubi di gomma per fare acquagym.



1

Ok, per la presentazione di questa borsa, se non ti dispiace, aggiungerei un po' di suspance.

























https://www.prada.com/it/it/women/bags/products.body_bag_in_nylon_prada_invites.1BC086_2CIC_F0002_V_OO4.html

No. Io non posso pensare che costi 1400€, rabbrividisco al solo pensiero. Con tutto il rispetto per l'architetto Kazuyo Sejima che ha disegnato sia questa borsa che quella che si è aggiudicata la medaglia d'argento (penso si fosse capito), ma sinceramente questa è la mia associazione...










E con questo la nostra top 5 delle borse più brutte di Prada è terminata! Ovviamente sono mie opinioni personali, condivisibili o meno, ma alla fine de gustibus! Spero di averti fatto sorridere almeno un po' con questo articolo un po' diverso dal solito! Ovviamente, trovi il resto dei pezzi (bellissimi) della collezione di borse Prada qui

 List Fashion Suit (similar)

If you've been following me for a while, you'll know I like to experiment with clothing. I love playing with combinations and styles: that's why today I propose you a look which may seem classic at first glance, but actually it's not at all!




SUIT

I really like tailored suits, they give elegance and sinuosity to the silhouette like nothing else. Another reason why I like them is that suits are immediately associated to career women, the boss ladies, and they're automatically a powerful symbol. However, I never loved wearing them. They're very serious and austere, which goes against my personality and way of presenting myself! So, you're surely wondering why I'm wearing this suit today. That's simple! Because it was gifted me and I wanted to see what I could bring out of it - lol!

>>>If you wanna support me, subscribe to the newsletter! Click here! P.S. Are you a blogger too? There's a proposal for you, come and see :)



TRY ON

Before reaching the final result, I tried different pairings: first of all, a classic shirt, tights and pumps but, as I could have imagined, it was not suitable for me at all; so, I went for a blouse, and it was still too serious. In the end, I chose a plain black tee, with puffed sleeves, which could easily be worn even without the jacket!



SHOES AND TIGHTS

The next step would have been the tights changing, choosing a pair prettier than the classic black one; so, the shoes... I had many doubts about them, because my eye fell always on the pumps, or on a pair of high-heeled ankle boots. Both of the pairings bored me, their style was too "office kind" and I didn't actually want a work outfit. Shortly, I decided to try a pair of my fave shoes, in red patent leather, to add a touch of colour and light up the look. Love at first sight!




ACCESSORIES

I added a pair of gold-coloured drop earrings and a matching cuff bracelet - with a very nice quote engraved on it! - to complement the outfit; lastly, I worn my daily go-to bag and my most useful coat during springtime, a solid kind made of sponge.

Tee

 I'm satisfied! This is a very comfy day outfit, and I've learned how to wear the only suit I have in my wardorbe as I like!

... Oh, yes! The first sign of time passing...

You, who have entered to read this post, will have come this far thinking that perhaps I have confused the articles, or made a mess with titles. But no.
Up to a few (several) years (actually many of them!) ago, from the top of my 20 autumns, my leather boots and my goth/grunge style (hard to believe, right?) I said, exactly, these words: "Suits suck!". I associated them with elderly, even the most fashionable ones for their time. Until, a few years later, I started to like cigarette pants at first, then pencil skirts, and lastly pinstripe suits. In no time, I found myself admiring all of those clothes at shop windows that I, stupidly, assumed for old people. It was at that precise moment, when I paused a second to reflect, that I realized my style was changing, it was maturing. In that second, I also thought: 

"OK, I'm screwed."

Riconosci Il Primo Segnale Allarmante Del Tempo Che Passa?


Come saprai, se mi segui da un po', mi piace sperimentare con l'abbigliamento. In effetti, adoro giocare con gli accostamenti e con i vari stili, ed è per questo che oggi ti propongo un look che, a prima vista può sembrare classico, ma in realtà non lo è affatto!

 Completo List Fashion (simile)

COMPLETO

Mi piacciono molto gli abiti in stile tailleur, credo donino un'eleganza e una sinuosità alla silhouette che pochi altri completi riescono a dare. Un altro motivo per cui mi piacciono è che subito si associa il tailleur alle donne in carriera, le boss lady, ed è in automatico un simbolo di potere. Tuttavia, non ho mai amato indossarli. Li vedo davvero molto seriosi e austeri, cosa che va in contrasto con la mia personalità e con il mio modo di presentarmi! Ti starai chiedendo, quindi, perchè indossi questo completo oggi. Semplice! Perchè mi è stato regalato e ho voluto provare a vedere cosa ne potessi tirar fuori haha!



PROVE

Prima di arrivare al risultato finale, ho provato diversi abbinamenti: ho tentato per prima cosa il classico camicia, calze velate e pumps ma, come avrei potuto immaginare senza provarli insieme, non era per nulla adatto a me; quindi ho spezzato con una blusa, e anche così era troppo serioso. Alla fine, ho scelto una semplice maglia nera, con le maniche a sbuffo, che potesse essere tranquillamente indossata anche senza la giacca!


CALZE E SCARPE

Il prossimo passo sarebbe stato quello di cambiare le calze, scegliendo un modello più carino, rispetto alla classica calza nera, e le scarpe... Qui ho avuto un po' di difficoltà, perchè l'occhio mi cadeva sempre sulle pumps o su un paio di stivaletti neri alla caviglia, ma mi annoiavano abbinati al completo, erano troppo "da ufficio". Alla fine, ho deciso di provare un paio delle mie scarpe preferite, in vernice rossa, per aggiungere un tocco di colore e accendere l'outfit. Mi è piaciuto subito!


ACCESSORI

Alla fine, mi è bastato inserire un paio di orecchini pendenti color oro e un bracciale in tono per completare il mio look; per quanto riguarda borsa e cappotto, ho scelto la mia go-to bag da giorno e il soprabito che più utilizzo durante la primavera, un modello in spugna sagomato, non troppo pesante.

Devo dire che sono soddisfatta, è un outfit da giorno molto comodo, e ho imparato a indossare l'unico tailleur che ho nell'armadio finalmente come piace a me!

... Ah già! Il primo segnale del tempo che passa...

Tu che sei entrata a leggere questo post, sarai arrivata fin qui pensando che forse ho confuso gli articoli, ho dato un altro titolo per sbaglio a questo post. E invece no!
Fino a qualche (parecchi) anno (anni!) fa, dall'alto dei miei 20 autunni, dei miei stivalacci di pelle e il mio stile goth/grunge (difficile da credere, vero?) dicevo testuali parole: "Che schifo, i completi." Li vedevo da persone anziane, anche quelli più alla moda per il loro tempo. Fin quando, qualche anno dopo, ho iniziato a guardarmi intorno, e hanno iniziato a piacermi prima i pantaloni a sigaretta, poi le gonne a tubino, e infine i gessati. In men che non si dica, mi sono ritrovata ad ammirare estasiata nelle vetrine tutti quegli abiti che io, stupidamente, credevo "da vecchi". E' stato in quel preciso istante, in cui mi sono soffermata per un attimo a riflettere, che mi sono resa conto che i miei gusti stavano cambiando, in un certo qual modo stavano maturando, ed è stato lì che ho anche pensato  
"Ok, sono fregata."

Beginner-Proof Method To Enhance The Inverted Triangle Body Shape
Pic by 50 Sfumature Di Outfit
 
Leggi questo post in Italiano

Here we are with body shapes, and this time the protagonist is the inverted triangle! If you've seen the previous post of the same series, you an easily identify its features; however, if you haven't read it or don't know what body shape you have, I suggest you to read it here! Then, go to the article which interests you the most :) Ready?


INTRODUCTION

The inverted triangle is the shape we usually find in many sportswoman: the upper part of the body is more developed than the lower one. The woman with this kind of body tends to accumulate extra pounds on her shoulder, breast and back. Obviously, her legs and hips are her strong points! 


As in the triangle, there is a disproportion between the upper and lower body, but in the opposite way: in fact, in this case the part to be enhanced is certainly the second; on the contrary, the first one needs to be harmonized. So, you have to mark the waistline while focusing the attention on your best qualities: you can do that either by creating volume from the hips down or trying to resize from the waist up.

>>>If you wanna support me, subscribe to the newsletter! Click here!

DRESS: TIGHT SKIRT AND LOOSE TOP


 One of the best outfits for the inverted triangle is surely the dress with the loose top and the tight skirt, to highlight the legs which, let's remember, are the strong point! Always prefer high waisted items than low ones, they suit you better and should be your first choice. If you wanna be on the safe side, opt for dark colours for the top and patterns or lighter tones for the bottom. Applications are fine too - you can afford them ;) By the way, the mid-thight lenght is great for you, so uncover those legs! However, absolutely not to dresses without or with thin straps, which put too much emphasis on shoulders, as well as high-necked ones!




CROSS-NECK DRESS



Same advice as before, better to choose short, waisted kind of dress with straps. There is only one difference: the crossed neckline slender the chest. If you can, always opt for dark colours for the top and light ones or pattern for the hip area.



TOP


 The minimize-the-upper-body rule is always valid, so absolutely try to avoid oversized or baggy clothes, as well as high-necked ones. Go with simple, not too elaborate items. Stuff that suit you the best are definitely raglan sleeves tees or blouses, but batwing ones are great too! It's better to prefer soft fabrics. I know there will be lots of women with this kind of body who wouldn't even dream of wearing a shirt, but... have you ever thought about wearing a men's shirt inside pants? You can also pair a sash belt to give more structure to it ;)



SKIRT


 There are no restrictions! You can play around as you like :) The only advice I can give you is to stay on the mini kind of lenght, it's perfect for you.




PANTS

Pic by Stai Benissimo

 You can wear what you want, as just as skirts! Shorts, skinny, cigarette pants and even flared jeans look great on you, but avoid wide legs pants: they don't give your legs the right justice!



COAT/JACKET


 Don't go with too long or double-breasted kind of  outerwear, they don't suit you. You can choose instead quite soft fabrics, which accompany your shapes; waisted ones are perfect. The trench coat is fine as jackets (always short kind, to highlight the lower body).



To recap:

  • Create volume in the upper part of the body
  • Minimize the disproportion of the upper one
  • Enhance legs, hips and waist
  • To stay on the safe side, choose bright colours and pattern for skirts or pants and darker tones and simple style for tops
  • Prefer minis to long or longuette kind of skirts
  • Avoid strapless tops or thin straps or even high-neck
  • Try wearing men's shirt inside pants
