Who is behind your blog? Who are you/are you?
My name is Francesca Romana Capizzi I was born and raised in Rome.
I am the daughter of a shopaholic and obviously I am a shopaholic too!
My mother transfered to me this insane passion and I turned it into a hobby with the opening of this blog 4 months ago. I buy a lot, especially shoes and bags. I am also lucky to have inherited many vintage pieces from my mother. My style is variable, depending on my mood or my inspiration of the moment. Typically I build the look around the piece I want to emphasize.
I am the mother of a two year old baby. Blogging for me is a way to indulge on my passion for fashion and to share it with other people!
How long have you been in love with fashion?
I guess since I was born, because of my mother inclination to fashion.
Why women are so crazy over shoes?
I don’t know how it works for other people, but personally I love shoes because they can dramatically change any look. How many outfit we see around exalted or ruined by a pair of shoes?
I often meet women that fro head to ankles are simply wonderful and then … ooooh but what are those ugly shoes?
What is your favourite shoe model and why?
Heels of course! I never worn flats even when I was nine months pregnant!
Do you have many low price shoes or few high quality ones?
I have no preferences. I like shoes so when I fall in love with a model I buy it regardless they are branded or not.
What are the features that you evaluatewhen choosing a shoe?
The creativity of the design is the first thing that strikes me.
Unfortunately I am not looking at comfort!
Most of the shoes that I have are truly uncomfortable but I gladly sacrifice because they really brighten up any of outfits!
What is the relationship between shoes and mood?
If I am a bit down, I put a beautiful shoe and already I feel better, that’s for sure.
Shoes can give confidence to any woman!
Do you have a color that appears most frequently in your shoe rack?
No, now I have a real kaleidoscope of colors in my closet!
What is the added value you perceive in Italian shoes?
I don’t want to be trivial with the usual history of quality, even American shoes are adequate nowadays.
The difference it’s in the creativity. The Italian shoes that I own are the most beautiful!
It is possible to express sensuality through the shoes? In what way?
As I said before, a nice pair of shoes can make woman more self-confident and even more sensual!
Which criteria you use to suit shoes to your outfit?
Actually I create the outfit according to the shoes!
For example, the purple Carvela Assess are very hard to match and I found an old top from the 80s that matches perfecty with them!
Or let’s think about the Sam EdelmanLorissa : these shoes are wonderful and really original with rhinestones and studs on the back, for them I have exhumed a top that I never put in years!
Can you think of some other sector linked to creativity (music, comics, literature, cinema, design, …) where shoes play an important role?
I think of Dorothy’s red shoes in the Wizard of Oz … the will remain in the history!
What will be your next pair of shoes or a future trend that you expect?
I am thinking about grabbing a pair of Prada Python and Suede boots!
Python leather shoes are the must of the new season!
A last thought about shoes to conclude the interview?
Do you remember the ex-boyfriend in “Something about Mary”?
In the end it turns out that he went mad for Mary’s shoes and in the final scene he has a full buch of them in his arms and even one in his mouth! Shoes can also have this effect on a man!
