franloiacono 's Thoughts:

Hi Chictopians!
Another week began…hope everyone’s ok! I’m feeling quite good!!
During the week-end I surfed the web a lot and…..I ended doing some online shopping lol So I feel quite guilty but I look forward to have my new purchases and to show them also here ;) I think it will take a while…

I’ve seen this sort of test in the forums , created by NewLook24 and I thought to share it here too, so here we go:

1. What is your favorite outfit that you have right now?
It’s pretty hard to decide. I think I like the combination blue/gray, more than gray/black or total black, lately. So I like a lot my almost new blue H&M shirt with the lace, with gray pants and of course a vest! Among my last uploads this and this one are my fave! :)

2. If you could hire any fashion designer to create a whole wardrobe for you who would it be and why?
Vivienne Westwood! Even if sometimes her creations are not so wearable in the everyday life (thinking about the life that I have lol), I adore her work, collections, soul and ideas. So please Vivienne: upgrade my style and closet! lol

3. What are your top 5 (or more if you want) essential clothing staples?
Ties. All kind of ties, I always want to find new ones. I’m starting a little collection :D
Shirts. There’s no tie without shirt lol
Vests. I love them to death :D Unfortunately I don’t have so many ones, also because I need them to fit me perfectly, and most of the times it doesn’t happen. Guess I have a strange body shape lol
Jackets. I’ve just bought 2 new ones lol
Pants. I’m not so proud of my undies, so I must wear pants ahah

4.Is there any person or character who’s style you really admire?
Uhm. I think I do like Brandon Flowers style, and also what Chuck Bass character usually wears. There are also lot of fashion bloggers and chictopians that I admire!

5. Is there a certain city or country who you think has great style?
Tokyo! Both boys&girls there have amazing style, they’re quite free about what they can wear, and I also think there’s a kind of respect. Sometimes in my hometown I wasn’t sure I could go out dressing excatly I would…while when in Tokyo I felt like I could try everything! I’d love to live there!

6. Which colors/patterns do you love to wear the most?
I’m not so fond of patterns, or prints. I do like monochrome, even if sometimes I can change my mind! ;) I think everyone one knows here that I love darker colours. I do love black and gray. Blue, purple. I have to admit that i received some messages asking me why I never try something more colorful. I think it would be a little hard for me, I always think that I’d love to try, but I end up wearing always the same colours (and buying the same colours)! lol Sorry!

7. Any trends you wish were never created?
I don’t care that much. I follow a trend only if I like that, and if I feel fine with an “old” trend, I don’t mind wearing that also beside the trend ends. I think I’m also quite classic, so maybe I’m not so into trends. I also think that anyone can try the trends if they feel ok with that, even if it is true that sometimes not all trends can fit to everyone…

8. What do you think are the best trends ever?
No idea ahah. I think I was happy when skinny jeans/pants came out also for guys.

9. Do you have any clothing goals right now? (ex. your currently saving up for a D&G dress)
Uhm. I’d love to buy a certain Vivienne Westwood t-shirt… lol

10. Favorite season to dress in?
I think I love every season. At the end of every season I get bored so I want the weather to get warmer/colder so that I can wear something different lol Among seasons I think the more difficult for me, to dress, is Winter! God, it’s coming… lol

11. Which clothes from what decade or era do you think should make a comeback?
Dunno. I’m quite in love with what may look as punk. Even if I don’t feel like I could wear something like that anymore! lol I’m too old…

12. Why do you like fashion?
I think I love different aspects about fashion. I adore fashion editorials, photography, photographers, street-style, some designers. So there’s always a new vibe that interests me. Thinking about me, I do love dressing in a certain way, style. I like to show my tastes. I like to add little pieces to try my so-called personal style.

I also want to thank Hypercoolmike that gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award too!

I do love this cardigan lol

Black, hand-made tie? How it tops-off that whole entire dandy-fit, quite nicely! The sweater gives it all, a less formal vibe, however still serves the purpose of classy and chic! Very nice...XOX!
