Back to the past with a pair of unforgettable shoes rescued from my closet, they are Alessandro Oteri’s sandals, I promised him that I would wear them again and here they are. Curious to know their story?
A new T Shirt, a skirt from last year and unforgettable shoes, Alessandro Oteri‘s sandals, one of the first collaborations I made with this blog and certainly one of the ones that remained in my heart.
Some time ago I was a guest on a direct Instagram and among the spectators I saw that there was also Alessandro Oteri who of course I immediately greeted by telling, to those who didn’t know, the story of our collaboration and citing these sandals.
Unforgettable shoes, when a sandal makes your heart beat faster.
I can’t remember exactly how our first contact went, I only know that when in 2013 I received the beautiful pair of sandals by Alessandro Oteri at home I was stunned: they were really beautiful.
3 materials (satin, suede and leather with snake print) and 2 colors (pink and green) for these slingbacks characterized by a large bow on the front,
A high heel but an extremely comfortable and stable fit with an attention to detail that only true Italian art can guarantee.
In short, I was literally crazy about these sandals and during my first (or second) Milan fashion Week I went to visit Alessandro Oteri in his showroom and was struck by the other models on display.
Then, you know, the age advances, the number of shoes increases and I forgot a bit about them …. they lay there in the bottom of my shoe rack (but with a place of honor) until I decided to wear them again. And it was love again!
All this makes me think of the fact that I have been in this world since the dawn of the dinosaurs!
2008, the dawn of fashion bloggers (today fashion influencer)
It was the first months of 2008 when I happened to be a fashion blogger.
In fact, I didn’t even know what a fashion blogger was, I just opened a fashion blog.
But I realized it was a very strong communication channel because people actually bought what I put on. And he believed that the success was due to the fact that we were real people and not models.
And this fact is so much true that I have grown old along with my blog. I started at 37 and today I’m 49.
In fact today I am no longer the fashion blogger in Rome but I am the fashion influencer over 40, even for a little while because I am going for the 50 |
And one thing is for sure, I have more shoes today than I had in 2008 hahahahahah!
