Chanel addicted.

When I came home from Torino about 1 hour ago, I was overjoyed to see that there was a mysterious thick letter in the mail from Chanel addressed to me :D
As soon as I got through the door of my home I opened the letter with my mom and my brother both anxious to see what it was (how cute are they?!) I found a letter and a really cool catalogue that is full of amazing pieces of maison Chanel.
I cannot wait to go visit their store to try on some new items and hopefully buy something too! :)
I would like to thank Chanel and the manager of the Chanel store of Torino! It really made my day!

My current obsession, has gone from loafers, to (now that its cold) sneakers! I recently saw Chiara Ferragni's (The Blonde Salad) glitter sneakers online, and I fell in love with them immediately, but then while I was walking in Torino with my family today I saw them and just fell even more in love (I might buy them on saturday) =).
The one thing that (actually two things) stop me from directly buying those sneakers are the Isabel Marant sneakers with the hidden wedge and the Gienchi studded ones!
Which ones would you guys pick? :)
p.s. none of these photos are mine :)

Current obsessions!

LOAFERS AND MOCASSINS! I love them! They're my current obsession! I used to think that mocassins werent my style and that loafers were the ugliest thing on this planet. But now? everything's changed about them! I cant wait to find a pair that I like here in Torino so that I can finally have my own! I think that loafers would be just perfect for everyday wear or for going to school, and I think that the Tod moccassins are just beautiful!
All loafers : Charlotte Olympia
Mocassins: Tods

Wearing Stradivarius..

Finally back home in Turin after a long weekend in Alassio where I got to see my friends and boyfriend. As soon as I arrived in Alassio last wednesday the weather has been terrible, its freezing cold, I went from shorts and a tank top to, jacket, jeans and boots in literally one day! Hopefully tomorrow the weather will be better so I can take some photos outside and show you all the things I bought in these couple of days! In this post I'm wearing the new things I bought from stradivarius. I've been using all three items (boots, jacket and jeans) a lot in these past few days and I just love them, cute and cozy! My whole outfit is from Stradivarius apart from my shirt which is Hollister and my pink Hérmes bangle which I adore!

Ombre or Brunette Lens?

I recently got my hair done while I was in Dubai. I got my hair dyed so it had that ombre effect that I just love! Funny story, the hairdresser screwed it ALL up, I'm telling you my hair was literally black until the height of my ears and then this weird orangey blonde all the way down to my shoulders :/
So basically after a while the hairdresser did it again and fortunately she was able to fix it and now it looks like proper ombre hair, phew right?
Anyhow, here are some photos of me right after I had my hair fixed and finished! 
Stay tuned for outfit photos with my ombre hair!

Welcome to the new Brunette Lens

Welcome welcome! How are you guys adjusting to the new banner and layout of the blog? I personally find it much nicer and clearer to look at. I liked the black background but I think that white makes it more serene and clearer and is also much nicer to look at. I don't know if its just me but if I would have to read a lot of things with a black background it makes me squint a lot more than with a white background. Tell me what you guys think about it now, was it better before, are there things that should be changed? Todo!

Goodies post...Part II, Italy

Yes, it feels good to be back, get back to the ordinary life at home you miss after a while of being away. Today I went out with my mother to do some shopping, everything is from Stradivarius apart from the bag which is from a cute small shop which makes handcrafted bags.
I have to get some things sorted out before I take more photos because the lighting of my Nikon is being weird so the colors are different from what they really should be...
I've been back for 3 days now and I'm leaving again tomorrow but I'll post outfit photos with all the new things I got!

Goodies...Part I Dubai!

While I was in Dubai we visited a lot of places and one of them was Dubai Mall (its huge) and there were so many things to see and cute things to buy. Some of my favorite shops were Ladurée (I LOVE their macaroons, yum!) Magnolia bakery (their cupcakes are the best ones I've ever had), S*uce store (they had the coolest things and funkiest pieces of jewellery and embellished sweaters) and the list goes on and on!
Right now I am waiting for a few photos to arrive but as soon as I have them I'll show you guys how I wore each and every thing I got, so you'll see it in a more detailed version.
I dont think I realised just how much stuff I bought until I took these photos!

P.s. stay tuned for tomorrows goodies post part II !

Back at home...

I came back from Dubai yesterday at 2 in the afternoon. As soon as I got home my parents showed me my brand new room which I absolutely love. I was shocked and amazed that that was my room! First of all the color of the walls was different, then they put in all the new furniture, a new macbook pro, new curtains, Chanel posters everywhere and it was just the best surprise ever, its my dream room! I took some photos of my new room so that I can share it with you, now keep in mind my parents paint and built everything thats in my room in 2 weeks, without professional help, I think they deserve an applause!

Today my brother, alex and me went paddle boarding on the Burj beach. It was my second time and Nick's (my brother) first time paddle boarding and it was really fun and a good workout for our arms at the same time! I cant wait for the waves to be good in Dubai so that I can go surfing :D
p.s. SUP stands for Stand or Surf Up Paddle!

Inspirational photos..!

These are just some photos with things I really like, for example I love love love fringe bikini's and saw one at Yamamay which I think I'm going to get! I also really like the variations of stacked bracelets. Hope you enjoy the pictures :)


My new Balenciaga in Baby Pink

I recently received this super cute bag as a gift and have always used it since. I love the color because I'm a fan of pastel colors so this bag is just right, besides, who doesn't love Balenciaga's?!

Quick sum up.. :)

I'm in Dubai again and it feels great, its summer time, exams are over, no more having to wake up early in the morning, just total two-month relax! I havent blogged in a long long time but now that I'm in Dubai with my friend Giulia which is also a blogger, she'll make sure I post a lot! To catch up I went to Madrid a few months ago and it was amazing, the city is just beautiful and with a lot of things to go see (I highly reccomend it to you guys, its a must-see city). I'll be putting pictures of Madrid up soon enough. Then two weeks ago I was in Glasgow for my brothers graduation (another really cool place to see). I was there for a week and I also went to Edinburgh which was really interesting to see (I also met the lady that has a guiness world record for the biggest quantity of piercings! She was really nice). When I came back from Glasgow I went to the seaside and went surf up paddling which is a lot easier than it seems and a lot of fun! Now I'm in Dubai and having a good time! I got here in Dubai the 27th night and yesterday I went shopping with Giulia and she got a gorgeous bag which you'll be able to see soon enough on her blog. I also bought a clutch, Its kind of a mix of a Stella McCartney falabella bag and a regular clutch, I just loved it as soon as I saw it!
What have you guys been up to? Hope your having a really good summer!
This is a quick preview of what I've been doing:

Yound Bloog- Naked and Famous

I can't count the number of times I've listened to this song but I love it! Tomorrow morning I leave for Madrid and I've been waiting to go there for ages!I'm also obsessed with the word Mamihlapinatapai which is so beautiful and its meaning is amazing! I think I might get it as a tattoo! I'm really happy I got a new balenciaga because a lot of people have it and it seems soo perfect for traveling so I wished I could have one and now that I do it will make tomorrow's flight even more enjoyable! The weather in Madrid is going to be amazing and we're going to visit so many places that I'm going to show you guys as soon as I get back :) and for now, I'll leave you with this amazing song!

Parco del Valentino

Unfortunately I still haven't been able to go to Madrid but the flights got sorted out and I''ll leave for madrid the 7th of May, its been so hectic lately with many many things to study with exams coming up and presentations to make for a school thats coming to visit soon, my subject is Italian fashion (yayyy) and I chose Gucci so I'll see if once its done I can manage to get my powerpoint up here! Today was a good day so I decided to go with my mom to Parco del Valentino. I'd only been there once before and never really got to see it well until today. Its such a nice and relaxing place, where a lot of families go to take a walk, play football, take some pictures...ect.  I wore a really basic look but comfortable for going to a park, I wrote my brand new red vans and my new scarf! 
p.s. Happy Earth day! :)

What I've been up to

Hello everyone! Hope you've all had a happy easter and had a good day. Today I spent some time with my family and went to town to look around in shops and found the funniest things and the things I would die for right now! A funny thing I saw was the 'telephone' for the iPhone which I would love to see people's reaction when I pull it out of my purse when someone calls me! Something I fell in love with the Gucci 1970 bag which is amazing! I absolutely love Chanel and when I passed in front of the Chanel boutique I loved their classic bag in beige, red and black (I want all of them NOW), I also saw Isabel Marant sneakers in a few stores! I basically saw everything I want to add to my never-ending wish list!! I also checked out Zara which i haven't been to for at least a month because they were renovating and It looks really good now but, I can't put my finger on what it is that I don't like. I was also kind of disappointed they replaced the Mango store with Guess (not that I don't like guess) because I was hoping that the Werelse for mango collection by Chiara, Andy and Carolina would be there. Just before the easter holidays I was supposed to go to Madrid but unfortunately the flight got cancelled because of a strike in France, but hopefully I should go next week!! For the easter holidays I went to the mountains with my family and just relaxed completely, If the word lazy could be a person, it would have been me on the day of easter (and a little bit of every other day)!! Some new things I recently bought are red classic vans and a  red bag that looks like the cambridge satchel!

Women's Day

As I said on the previous post I wasn't able to post pictures yesterday so I am going to post them tonight. I do realize they would look better outside but the roads where I live are all like ancient and they are all small rocks in the ground (sorry I don't know how to call that) and I would fall all the time ahaha (like when i went to the dinner with chiara ferragni the floor there was all 'rocky' and I fell a couple times, okay a lot of times and It was quite embarrassing ahah) anyways I wore some pretty basic things: Louis vuitton speedy, a vintage chanel shirt, basic black intimissimi leggings and my favorite heels!
oh I was forgetting! Happy women's day :)

She's Back!

Yes I'm back! I'm living, breathing, eating, going to school and doing my homework! The only thing missing? BLOGGING! I'm soo sorry I haven't blogged in sooooo long! I was sick for a week but for the rest I just haven't been blogging! shame shame shame on me! What did you guys do on Valentines day? I had the best Valentines day ever! I studied for a big big test (but it went well :) ). Report cards came out lately and I was actually kind of surprised, it was a lot better than what I thought! I wanted to say Happy women's day to all the girls reading my blog! This night when my dad came back from work he had two huuuuuge boxes of ferrero chocolate (75 chocolates in each box), one for me and one for my mom! I couldn't make a post for today of my outfit for women's day (no one could take pictures of me) but I'll make sure I do it tomorrow and post it! I have sooo many surprises for the blog and you guys I can't wait to tell you all! (I am using loads of exclamation marks lol). I think thats all I needed to tell you guys! I'm sorry If my english or just how I wrote all of this is kind of messy but I guess its just the excitement of writing a post after ages ahaha! Oh yes! I almost forgot, we're doing Romeo and Juliette at school and I was super excited to audition and everything, I got on stage after practicing my lines about 1247839 times and looked the teachers straight in the eye, and guess what? yup I forgot every single line! I really wanted to be the nurse but its okay, I get to be the narrator (-.-) :)
Sorry for the bad quality of these first two pictures because I took them with my computer.
p.s I'm wearing the chanel nail polish, Mimosa ;) ahaha

Lost & Found

I recently found some pictures I had taken of my cat and I thought it would be nice to share them with you guys! This is mainly a fashion blog but, I also created it due to my passion for photography :) tell me what you guys think!! I cropped these pictures because I thought you can see her 'expressions' in these photo's! 
p.s. her name is Ginger and I loooooooove her  :)

Talking about Louboutin's...

Since I made a post where I talk about a pair of Louboutins I thought it would be okay to mention this 'Louboutin Manicure'. Adele was on the red carpet (I don't know at which event she was at so I'm sorry if I'm wrong) and pictures were shot while she was waving and showing off her cool Louboutin manicure. The top of the manicure was silver and the bottom was red!!

Louboutin Love

I don't know if any of you have noticed my obsession with Christian Louboutin shoes!! I recently saw these on the internet and they immediately took my breath away! The shape, the thickness of the heel the color, everything! I just love them!! What do you guys think of them?? :)


 Every once in a while I get the urge to get a tattoo but then I somehow end up talking myself out of it. Anyhow these pictures I put up are some of the tattoo's I really like, some of them I like the drawing or the phrase.  I think that if I would get one i would either get it on my rib cage, on the side or on the back of my neck( even if I think it really hurts there..). Enjoy these pictures :)

Red Roses

 Its soo chilly here in Italy with all this snow all over the city! Sorry I haven't posted in a while but its been like wild and hectic lately!Anyways Today after surviving the cold and getting back home I decided to show you guys one of my favorite dresses! Its a Dolce and Gabbana dress in super soft silk, with a gorgeous pattern of roses on it, I simply love this dress! I decided to wear it with my zara heels! I don't know why, but I think with the snow here I feel like I'm always wearing really bright clothes that stand out soo much when walking around in town! Hope you like this dress as much as I do :)

Lets do the snow dance together

Its been snowing since yesterday (which is a great thing), and today I wanted to go take some pictures in the snow because I just can't resist the contrasts that you can achieve! This is the first snow I've seen this year(and last year as well because when it started snowing I went to Dubai as you can see herel) so I was really surprised and happy when I saw it was snowing that much! The fist thing that came to my mind was making a snowman but I didn't have a lot of time so I just wrote The Brunette Lens in the snow!
What I'm wearing:
shoes: Tods / jeggings: Hollister /  coat: add / scarf: subdued / hat: river island /
p.s. Brrrrrrrrrr ahahah!

This isn't really the outfit of the day, but I felt like doing something with contrasts today. In the white dress I portray the more angelic side of me and of people and in the dark dress I show the darker side. I love these two dresses but since they are very formal I don't have many occasions to show them to you guys :( Anyways now you can see them ahaha I hope you like them :)
White outfit:
Dress was a gift
hat vintage

Mytheresa shoes

I love shoes, and I'm constantly looking on the internet for new shoes. The other night on mytheresa I found these beautiful shoes I can't stop thinking about! They're Valentino, one of my absolute favorite brands. They are rose pink suede sandals with stiletto heel and platform side coated, T-strap belt with square gold colored studsankle strap with side buckle brown leather and pearl-colored leather sole. Aren't they amazing? I'm sure there are some of you who will like them and some which will love them, its a love or hate thing, I....LOVE THEM :)
I also found these shoes at mytheresa! They are amazing, they're Gucci black in leather ankle boots, I just love them, simplicity always wins!

These are Rupert Sanderson, must I say anything else? They're just wonderful, I love these too.

These are shoes by Marni, I love these because they are classy even if they have a lot of detailed embellishments, I think these shoes are really great because they look good with almost everything! 

domenica 22 gennaio 2012


Today after studying I decided to take a break and go visit Venaria with my parents since the weather was so good today it seemed like a shame to not go outside and enjoy it. Venaria is a cute little place, we were going to visit more but the que was infinite so we decided to take some pictures from the outside :) 
what I'm wearing?
Add jacket
Subdued sweater
A&F neon shirt
Intimissimi leggings

In my wardrobe

Wardrobes, who doesn't like them? I LOVE THEM :) I recently got a new wardrobe since my old one was way too too small. It took about a week for me and my brother to finish building it, with the lights and the lifting this, hand me the screw driver or hold this straight. Anyways, since I first spotted it at Ikea I knew it was love at first sight lol. I think that wardrobes somehow really describe someones personality, by how much space they need, how much care they put into their wardrobe and of course what goes in the closet, if you have more heels than sneakers or more sweatpants than jeans or skirts. Today I  decided to post pictures of my wardrobe and whats inside it.. :)

Colorful in Dolce and Gabbana

Its been really fun hanging out with my brother, playing wii, laughing until we cry or make someone laugh because ours is just histerical, but his time left in Italy isn't a lot :( Last night we went out to one of my favorite restaurants in Torino "Birilli". We went there to 'celebrate' my brother's last weekend in Italy (for now).
