Guest post on Fancy Fine!


Today I am very excited to share with you a peek at my very first guest post, which happens to be for one of my all time favorite blogs: Fancy Fine! I'm sure most of you are familiar with it, Ashley is such a fun, adorable lady with the dreamiest vintage wardrobe and always a huge smile on her face. So I was simply delighted when she asked me to be one of her guest bloggers, I hope you will enjoy my little post :)
The photographs were taken last week here in Turin, mostly at Galleria Subalpina, which is a breathtaking baroque gallery from 1873 just in the very heart of town. Under it you can find a historic cafe, an art gallery, an antiquarian bookstore and an old cinema, I love having always an excuse to walk across it as it connects two of the main squares of the city centre. Throughout the whole perimeter it's surrounded by a balcony, I can only let you imagine the view from there...
I wore my favorite 40s lace dress, which of course I managed to stain with strawberry ice cream right after taking that picture, hopelessly clumsy! Anyway there's a lot more pictures from that day on Ashley's blog, so make sure you check it out to see the full post! Click, click! x

Oggi mi prendo volentieri una piccola pausa dalle foto di Londra (sì, ce ne sono ancora!) e vi mostro invece un altro po' della mia città! Conoscete Fancy Fine? Oh, dovreste! Ashley e' sempre stata una delle mie blogger preferite, e' una ragazza deliziosa, divertente, con un guardaroba vintage da far impallidire e ha sempre un gran sorriso sul volto, la adoro! E quindi immaginate quanto sia stata felice quando mi ha invitata a creare un piccolo post per il suo blog, spero vi piaccia :)
Le fotografie sono state scattate la settimana scorsa durante una passeggiata in centro, in particolare nella Galleria Subalpina, che e' un capolavoro barocco nel cuore di Torino ed uno dei miei posti preferiti. E' stata costruita nel 1873 e al suo interno ci sono alcuni negozi di antiquari, un vecchio cinema, una pasticceria storica e una galleria d'arte. Mi piace poter avere sempre una scusa per attraversarla, perche' unisce due delle piazze principali del centro. Tutto intorno al perimetro corre una balconata e vi posso solo lasciare immaginare la vista da lassù...
Ho indossato un abito in pizzo degli anni '40, che ovviamente sono riuscita a macchiare di gelato alla fragola un secondo dopo la foto, imbranata senza speranza. Ad ogni modo, nel blog di Ashley ci sono un sacco di fotografie di quella giornata, mi raccomando passate a trovarla per vedere il resto del post! Click, click! ;)

    Orla Kiely sunglasses... Ahem !?
    When did that happen ?
    O___O

    You look stunning on these pics my dear. That dress suits you a treat !
    Don't worry, strawberry sorbet doesn't stain much.

    Bisouuuus x

    Rosaspina Vintage said...

    Haha, it happened right after I missed the other ones on ebay ;) And you know what, I like these so much better!
    Thank goodness the ice cream stain on the dress is gone now, Turin is full of little fountains so I managed to save it just in time! xxx

    Rosaspina Vintage said...

    (Why do I have the feeling that you *know* how much strawberry sorbet stains...? ;D)

    rose-a-petits-pois said...

    Ah ah... I am more experienced with raspberry sorbet stains and they're a lot worse ^_^ !!

    pizzo rosa, bellissimo. Trovo che il marrone sia il colore migliore che si possa accostare a quella tonalità!
    Buona giornata,

    @le freaks - è un vestito degli anni 40 che ho comprato su etsy qualche anno fa, il negozio si chiama Allen ed è negli usa, ha sempre delle cose meravigliose!

    Solange Garnier said...

    This dress is absolutely adorable and the neckline is just what I like! Dreamy :)
    When I'm back home from Paris, I'm trying to persuade one of my old time friends to take a little trip to Italy (our home region is just across the border) and I'd love to visit Turin as it's not very far. I know you've been showing us around for quite a bit, but have you thought of putting together a real city guide? It would be much appreciated ^^ (best sights, cutest hidden treasures, vintage/antique shops, where to find reaaaaal italian ice creams(!), best cafés and restaurants...) ooow I wish I could be there right now!
    By the way, this antique book shop seems to die for. Being the Art nouveau buff that I am, I'm pining over that "Novissima" book cover!

    Rosaspina Vintage said...

    @Solange Garnier - thanks darling, I always love reading your comments :) A city guide for Turin, oh I'd LOVE to do that! It would also mean a brilliant excuse to eat more ice cream and sip coffee, so yeah why not ;) I'm going to be a little busy in the next few weeks for something that's going to happen in september (!) but I'll see what I can do :) And if you're coming to Turin earlier than that just drop me an email, I have lots of places to recommend you! x

    Catherine said...

    All of these accessories are so perfect - the sunnies, the bag, the hasbeens, ah! I love the pink lace dress as well. Gorgeous as always~

    Il vestito è veramente delizioso, mi piacciono molto anche gli occhiali...Torino deve essere una città poliedrica in cui si percepisce la maestosità delle grandi capitali e dove si può sempre inciampare in luoghi un po' retro e incantati ;)sicuramente un giorno verrò a visitarla :))

    Alessandra said...

    Che foto meravigliose e che abito spettacolare.. Io resto sempre senza parole quando vengo a farti visita sul blog :)

    Solange Garnier said...

    ooooh a special event in September, how thrilling! :) I'm guessing this might just be the sort of happy occasion where Orla should design a magnificent organdi princessy-but-cutesy dress just for your special day :) Best wishes to you in any case! I hope you have a marvelous time of it.
    I'm glad you like the idea and will patiently wait for you to craft the guide. In any case my trip won't happen till later in the fall or maybe winter, since I already have quite a big journey across the pond the the Big Apple planned this month, so I still have plenty of time ;)
    Thanks a million anyway, you made Turin quite the exciting destination :)

    Rosaspina Vintage said...

    @Catherine - ooh I had no idea that you read this blog, thanks for your lovely comment ;) x

    @Adored vintage - of course, I love your instagrams! :)

    @Clo - Torino e' proprio così, ti piacerebbe molto!

    @Alessandra - grazie cara *_*

    @Solange Garnier - good!!! That means that you'll have to give me some advices this time ;) I'm going to New York in October for about a week and would definitely use some good suggestions, especially hotel wise! x
