I was supposed to publish this post last Friday while the celebrations for the entrance of 2017 were going crazy, deciding what to wear at the last-minute, getting organized for the evening and the first bottle of bubbles being opened at 3:00 pm, in the exact moment my family and friends were turning a new page in my homeland Italy.
What I was going to wear and where I was going to celebrate the new year sounds futile and irrelevant when somewhere else in the world there was already the first terrorist attack in those small hours of the night.
My blog is not about politics or social troubles, for that we have politicians. My blog is about changing seasons, changing trends, color philosophy, peace and harmony in our cocoons, feeling good with the clothes we wear and why not having fun with travel and food?
Studying the new year’s colors and trends, gold has come up everywhere in home décor and in fashion. The roaring ’80s style is returning strong and the ’70s style is lingering with fringes, wedge shoes, Bohemian memories of miss-matched colors and prints.
On the evening of December 31st, I wore golden shoes studded with glass beads paired with an animal print golden trousse, aubergine short skirt with black fringes long to the ankle, a classic boat neck top, an off white coat with a large aubergine chiffon scarf.
The fringe over my skirt it’s a removable piece. I made it to wear interchangeably over pants and skirts of all lengths.
I read the zodiac and the numerology of 2017, everything seems to point out to a new cycle of wellness and serenity.
Summing the numbers of 2017 we get number 10, which is the symbol of Love and Light. Number 10 brings all sorts of new changes into our life and there seems to be an element of luck because it resonates with the vibrations and energies of leadership, optimism, confidence, independence, creative powers and success. Number 10 is the perfection.
I absolutely adore to read about 2017.
Let’s make this 2017 a stellar year. I am so glad you are here illuminating my days with your thoughts, stories and personal experiences. Happy New Year everybody, all the way through. Welcome 2017. Ciao,
