TIFFANY KEYS NECKLACES

Weather in Chicago changes so much in only a day: yesterday It was so cold Richie and I were freezing outside! We went to have a walk on Michigan Avenue with a Starbucks American coffee in the hand and to see the Loop. The Tiffany shop is huge and full of products I’ve never seen in Italy (Yes I’m guilty again, Tiffany’s my drug and I found a white heart necklace!). Americans here are simply amazing, they always stop you to ask where are you from, tell you about their lives here and smile at you all the time, everytime I talk to them I have to admit Italians are not the same, and that is such a pity.
Finally we reached the Bean, that I could only enjoy in photographs before, and It’s much better in reality. The stupid part of me came over and I had so much fun overthere, doing stupid things as you can see in my video 😀
We ate at a restaurant under the Bean which was awesome, I loved the chicken soup and a big bacon cheeseburger, American life rocks!

Il tempo a Chicago cambia completamente in un solo giorno: ieri io e Richie stavamo letteralmente gelando fuori! Siamo andati a fare una passeggiata su Michigan Avenue con il nostro caffè americano di Starbucks in mano fino a raggiungere il Loop. Il negozio di Tiffany è gigantesco e pieno di prodotti che non ho mai visto in italia (Si, sono di nuovo colpevole, Tiffany è la mia droga e ho trovato una collana con il cuore bianco!). Gli Americani sono favolosi, ti fermano sempre per chiederti da dove vieni, ti raccontano la loro vita e ti sorridono tutto il tempo, ogni volta che parlo con loro devo ammettere che gli italiani non sono cosi, ed è un vero peccato.
Alla fine siamo arrivati al Bean, che avevo potuto apprezzare solo in fotografie ed è mille volte meglio nella realtà. E’ naturalmente venuta fuori la mia parte stupida e bambinesca e mi sono divertita tantissimo a fare cavolate, come si può vedere dal video 😀
Abbiamo mangiato in un ristorante sotto il fagiolo che era splendido, ho adorato la minestra di pollo ed il cheeseburger con il bacon, la vita Americana e’ il massimo!

    Richie sta facendo uno stage e l'ultimo anno di specialistica, io sono al 4 anno di giurisprudenza e lavoro come modella in showroom, ma non e' un lavoro che faccio sempre.

  • I love your coat. Very cute.

    And yes, it is very cold here!

    I think that Americans would love Italy and Italians would love America. I think its all about what you're used to and seeing it from a different way!

  • Awesome Chiara… your outfits today are so classy, I specially like how you and Richie look together. The video is so fun.
    Chicago suits you fine.

    The photo of you in the black dress sitting in the restaurant and the one of Richie at the bridge are great.

    Chicago looks awesome! I'm thinking about going to school there. Love love your outfits and glad to see you like the U.S. haha I wish I could travel to Italy!

  • hah, this video is so funny;D Please don't tell me anything about the weather! In Poland is just the same right now. Once it's quite hot and then it's just freezing. But by the way. The weather in Chicago is much, much different than in Italy, isn't it? Is it sometimes less than 0 degrees in the place where you are living? I'm just jealous about it!:)

  • Yayyyy another amazing blog post! 🙂 I really enjoy looking at your photos and reading your reviews, they make me smile ALL the time. Your photos express so much pozitive energy & happiness 🙂 I can imagine how happy you are to be in Chicago, besides the fact that it's an amazing city, you get to be with your boyfriend. You guys look so cute together! Make the best of your time there! OH and I must add that your outfits are really pretty but be careful so you don't catch a cold 🙂

  • Gosh, im so glad that u like it.
    U should shop on State Street , mazbe u can find the minnetonka boots there. maybe @aldo …im not quiet sure. If u find time …take the Bus 56 – Milwaukee,Jefferson Park…and drive to Milwaukee-N Damen Ave or Milwaukee-W Divison St.
    , there are a lot of cute little stores, but also urban outfitters , american apperal and so on.
    Have fun and enjoy it 🙂

    Thanks Stefanie so much, could I find Minnetonka boots in some shopping centre like nordstrom here in Chicago?Or are there any streets full of shoe shops (like in NYC)?

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni
  • U should try to get to Woodfield Mall, they say it is one of the biggest malls in america.
    How long are u in chicago?
    Dont forget about "Black Friday" … the friday after thanksgiving. some stores open around 5 in the morning and it is a huge SALE day. so save some money 😀
    im not sure if chicago has a street like that. u should also check out tj-maxx on state street. they have sometimes pretty good deals… i bought lovely Steve Madden boots there , couple weeks ago.

  • Hi Chiara,
    I´ve been following your blog since its beginnings, and wanna tell you it´s simply great (just as you are.-)). There are so many coincidences – I´m almost the same age (21), and even look a lot like you (tall, blonde, blue eyes)! And I study law too. My stepfather is Italian, I can speak, but I can´t write that good:-)
    And you know what? I was still thinking that Richie reminds me of someone.. Eric Bana! Without a beard of course:-)
    I´m lucky for you that you have such a nice relationship full of love, because it´s just what I have with my boyfriend. We have been together for 4 years and nobody believes that we are still so in love with each other!
    Love you!

    Audrey in a shop in Cremona, you can find them similar in Italy in a shop called Mauro Giuli!
    Si me ne hanno parlato, ma che genere di negozi fanno gli sconti?

    Reply to Chiara Ferragni
  • Le catene un po' tutte. Target per esempio fa svendite grandissime sulla parte di elettronica, quindi se ti serve PC, ipod tv o digital camera vai benissimo perche' i prezzi sono stracciati.
    macy's etc hanno sconti su abbigliamento scarpe .

  • I was going to buy that dress a few weeks back but I decided to postpone a few days. when I went to H&M to buy it, it was gone 🙁 The chains on the shoulders are just divine.

  • This is so random that I just found your blog today. It is great by the way. I just got into blogging myself. Funny though, I bought this scarf from H&M today, I live/study in Chicago, I studied abroad in Italy last year. Life is sooo funny. Parlo solo un puo di Italiano ma sappio (?) che tu sia bellisima e tu moda = amazing!

    I will for sure follow from now on.
