After a half an hour nap, a shower and a change of clothing Angie and I decided to take advantage of the free afternoon to have a first trip in Shanghai: we started with a walk in Bund, followed by a walk on Waitan near the river with a view of the Pudong skyline to arrive on Nan-jing Dong Lu. The “original” outfit was supposed to be without scarf and hat, but the extremely cold wind didn’t let me act in other ways 🙂 The bag you see in these photos is the new Givenchy Antigona bag, which was sent to me just before leaving from RUNIN2 (talking about perfect timing), and that “saw the light” for the first time on my first day here in Shanghai 😀
And speaking of travels and wonderful opportunities.. Here is one for you (only for people in US, Canada, Germany, France and UK): with HUGO BOSS you can win a celebrity shopping experience in New York! How?
-HUGO BOSS is raffling off an exclusive celebrity shopping experience in New York. The winner will enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the city that dreams are made of from December 13 to 15, 2011, including flight, accommodation in a luxury hotel and a personal Xmas shopping tour with an international fashion icon at the HUGO BOSS Store in NY’s Meatpacking District. The name of the international fashion icon who will go shopping with the winner will soon be revealed on the HUGO BOSS FANPAGE:
-Follow HUGO BOSS ON FOURSQUARE and watch out for Check-in Specials or look out for the QR code at our participating stores. The deadline to enter the sweepstake is December 6, 2011. Good luck!

Dopo un pisolino di mezzora, una doccia ed un cambio di vestiti io e Angie abbiamo deciso di approfittare del pomeriggio libero per fare un primo giro di Shanghai: abbiamo iniziato con una passeggiata nel Bund, seguita poi da una camminata sul lungo fiume di Waitan, con vista sullo skyline di Pudong, per poi arrivare su Nan-jing Dong Lu. L’outfit “originario” doveva essere senza cappello e sciarpa, ma la temperatura ed il vento gelido mi hanno costretto a ricorrere a questi rimedi 🙂
La borsa che vedete in queste foto è la nuova Antigona di Givenchy, che mi è stata mandata appena prima di partire da RUNIN2 (quando si parla di tempismo perfetto), e che ho già “inaugurato” per questo primo giorno a Shanghai 😀

  • The bund, my favorite area, especially in nite time, check out the small street behind penisula called yuan ming yuan rd, and also the wai bai du bridge, when the lights on in nite time, it's really calm and beautiful.

    I'm sorry to tell you that your zippers are not coordinated. Gold on the bag and silver on the skirt!!!!

    ps: please spell out "going to" instead of writing "gonna". Be a good example for all the other foreigners writing in English.

    belle foto, ho come l'impressione che quelle calze non tengano molto caldo però! Avrei optato per un paio di pantaloni, magari in pelle.

  • I have been travelling to China before thanks to a Chinese sister-in-law and it is a really interesting place to discover. Enjoy your stay!
    I love your outfit and the bag is to die for, but I shudder at the boots 🙂 They look old and rumbled and – in my opinion – ruin the look of the perfect rest. But I said some time ago already that I don't like these kind of boots losely hanging on slim legs, so nothing new there ^^

  • Welcome to Shanghai! You've got to check out the VUE bar before it starts raining on Monay, and Mr. Willis for brunch.

    Enjoy this crazy city!

    Oh finalmente un bel cappotto calduccio rock yeah! La borsa però non mi fa impazzire e le scarpe sinceramente sono bruttine, ma come fai :S cmq divertiti 😉

  • I reccomend you go to a bar called cloud nine in Hudong. It is on the top of a 58-floor 238 meter tall skyscraper.The perfect place to get the best views of not only the Bund but all of Shanghai.
    oh! I almost forgot! If you like yummy dumplings you should check out this famous resturant Din Tai Fung.

  • Love the travel photos! More, please, especially of the city lights at night. I think your hat makes the outfit. Very choc, I'd like the bag a lot more if it didn't have the brand name on it in big gold letters (Prada has started doing this too and I refuse to be a walking advertisement for them!) Angie looks like a Christmas elf with his skinny legs and hood! And speaking of skinny, you're looking awfully thin these days. Take care of yourself with all this traveling.

    Oh, and tell "English Teacher" above that it's "Ciao" not "Chow!"

  • Ciao chiara…bell'outfit il cappotto è molto contemporaneo ho notato che le borchiette sono diventate uno dei must di questa stagione…poi i tuoi capelli risaltano molto con il nero…bè stai davvero bene…come sempre:P…buona continuazione…ciao

  • Oh the Nanjing dong lu , it is the street that I advice to you in the post of yesterday (during my travel, the guide told us that this street is called "rue Nankin", maybe it is the french translation !!) It is wonderful and it is the temple of the shopping !!

    The first picture of this post, I have the same (but at 12 years, my outfit was not so lovely !! )
    Thank your for all this good remembers; I really love your coat !!
    Bye 🙂

  • … that studded-jacket is amazing…! I love anything that is covered with metal studs! (just a few days ago I bought Coco duffel bag by Alexander Wang khaki-color!)
    However, maybe I would prefer a different color for the hat … =)

    Hey Chiara;)
    If you're in Shanghai you should'nt miss to visit the Oriental Pearl Tower! The floor comprised partially of glass in one of the upper stories. I've been last summer there and it was a nice experience.

    besides the bag and your shoes are pretty (:

    Went to Shangai ones, on one of the menu's in a certain restaurant they translated a chicken dish in to "Saliva chicken", it was so hilarious 😀 maybe you'll find some funny translations as well 🙂

  • Bellissime foto!!!deve essere una città molto interessante da visitare!!!

    Chiara ti posso chiedere una info sui tuoi capelli??? Ho visto da altri posti che di natura li hai abbastanza ricci, ma quasi sempre li porti lisci e leggermente mossi alle punte….li fai con la piastra???la passi tutti i giorni??? E' una domanda che voglio farti da mesi!!!Grazie!!

    le foto sono un po' tristi..forse è tutto quel grigio, ma è inquinamento o brutto tempo? -.-

  • The hat actually added a lot of character to the outfit, so it's a win-win in the end.

    Seeing the photos like these makes me want to just book the flight and go somewhere far away.

    la Cina deve essere un posto così diverso ed enigmatico, meno comprensibile per noi occidentali rispetto al Giappone o sbaglio? a parte il discorso commerciale hanno una cultura che non ci ha contaminato come quella jap, che impressioni ti dà?

    I really like your furry hat! Ok, maybe I'll put that in my Christmas wish list later =)
    Have fun in Shanghai!

    Reply to Diva In Me
  • Foto meravigliose di Hong Kong: una delle cose belle di questo blog è che si può viaggiare il mondo insieme a te e conoscerlo meglio tramite le tue foto. Riguardo al look, siamo sempre sul quasi perfetto, dove il quasi riguarda qualche perplessità sul berretto, un po'troppo grande, e sulle borchie di metallo nelle spalle del cappotto. Il voto è 9.

    Ciao Chiara ! Prima di tutto vorrei dirti che sei bellissima e mi piace il tuo senso della moda ! Ti seguo da un po di tempo! Sono una studiante Francese di origine Italianna, vorrei sapere se mi puoi dare un consiglio per fare uno stage in una grande firma come prada, miu miu .. a Milano ? Grazie Mille un abbracio da Parigi !
