Style Archives!

Style grows on one, one creates it or one's just born with it.
These are a bunch of style archives I caught on the Italian streets. I think the pictures speak style, I needn't say much, just that each one's spotted at completely different locations and still there's a string running through.

Roma Roma

Rome is a monument, the whole city is one big monument! 
Romans 'live' life, si verramente la Dolce vita. The food, the streets, the people, the music and the costume.. its a whiff of LIFE. I could spend days together at a piazza in Rome and go home feeling rich.
There's such a distinct difference in the dialect when we move down from Milan to Rome.  The language just gets more musical and the people more theatrical.

The Vatican ofcourse has fantastic costume and a lot of maybe other fantastic stuff that doesn't take to my fancy really. (The Romans are probably the Pope's closest enemies)

Love these jester like uniforms
Founded in 1506, the Papal Swiss Guard is the Vatican’s military unit and is charged with protecting the pope and guarding the Apostolic Palace and the gates of Vatican City. The vibrant blue, yellow and red—the colors of the Medici—have been used since the 1600s, and the uniforms have had minor changes through the centuries.

Turning to tubes

Summer's always warmly welcomed in Europe unlike in India where we dread it!
Getting those coats off and slipping on a tube is ahhh.. one of the most awaited time of the year!

 Interesting accessory accents!
 Solid color block worn so well!
 Innovative style

I like the variations of the tube.. and how one can accessorize it since its non-interfering. Tube dresses, jump suits, tops..
