Kitschy Kitschy Bang Bang

WearingBlouse with nautical stripes and eyelet lace: H&M, high-waisted pants: H&M, grey pumps: H&M, leather belt: Anthropologie, quilted bag: handmade here in Rome, big-brimmed sun hat: Giuliani (a family-owned boutique), glasses: vintage from mom

I couldn't wait to wear this blouse for the blog as I'm head-over-heels in love with its sharp nautical stripe pattern and it's sweet eyelet lace. I can think of a million ways to wear it, and at one point, I was reaching for it almost every other day! But I'm trying to avoid doing that now because I'm afraid of wearing it to death. My mom liked this little set-up in these photos as she thought it cute and kitschy with the flowers and the stripes and my scallop-brimmed sun hat. I certainly wasn't going to complain as I am a big fan of all things "kitschy," even the word itself!

This week, I also had the pleasure of being interviewed by the Italian vintage company DeliGlam as a "Style Icon of the Present." DeliGlam is chock-full of pretty vintage treasures from all over Europe that its owners Paola and Valentina stumble upon in their travels, and their blog is full of old-fashioned romance and sweetness. The interview is in Italian, but I tested out the English translation from the translator site http://babelxl.com/ and it worked out pretty well. So in case you're interested, you can check out the actual interview here, and this way if you don't speak Italian, you'll be able to understand it anyway! :) 

Also, Paola and Valentina asked me to let you know that as a Molto Fashion reader, you'll receive a 15% discount on a purchase (min. €30). Just enter the code "emoltofashion15" at checkout, and you're all set! :)
