Milano Hot Spots with the RE Cam by HTC

Exploring a city is so much fun and discovering the cutest cafés and shops is what makes travelling so special to me. Luckily, while in Milan for fashion week, we also had some time to wander to the Duomo, pick up delicious paninis on our way and do a bit of window shopping at Via della Spiga. Definite must-sees and hot spots when in Milan. However, it is not always fun to lug around a huge dslr camera. While the photos always turn out amazing, the weight sometimes makes me reconsider. Which is where my new best friend comes in: the RE cam by HTC. We were gifted one of the small and super handy new cameras, and you guys, I am obsessed! It is soo much fun, let’s you capture such good photos on the go and perfect for selfies (a blogger’s favorite). As part of the fun with our new toys, Anni, Kayla and I also got to sit down with stylist Alexis Knox for a chat about fashion, music and her #SelfieSchool – where you can tag your photos with questions and she’ll help you snap the perfect selfie. Kinda cool, right? But now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking – scroll to the bottom to see my favorite snapshots from the Milano hot spots, taken with my RE Cam.

OUTFIT: Milan Fashion Week – Day 1 with AIGNER

On Thurdsday afternoon, I hopped on a plane and headed to beautiful Milano for fashion week. Obviously I’ve been to a few fashion shows throughout the past 5 years as a blogger, but this was my first big fashion week – and it has been excited to say the least! I literally felt so overwhelmed when I was trying to pack my suitcase, which is probably why I packed more for 3 days than for an entire week in Abu Dhabi – but better be safe than sorry, right? One of my personal highlights was spending the day with AIGNER for a visit backstage and then seeing their show. For the first day in the Italian fashion capital, I decided to go with one of my all-time favorite pieces, super torn boyfriend jeans, paired with a stunning AIGNER cape (one word: cashmere!) and a gorgeous burgundy bucket bag from their upcoming a/w collection.

CRAVINGS: milano fashion week

While I am sitting at the gate, waiting to board my flight to Milan, I leave you guys with some cravings for fashion week. Trust me, packing for 3 days in Milan is harder than a 2-week long trip to anywhere else. What does one wear to fashion week? Especially in Italy, where women seem to have fashion in their genes. In the end, I decided to go with a few typical “Vicky Pieces”, because after all, I want to feel like myself! There’s a full agenda planned for the next 3 days, but one of my personal highlights will be the AIGNER show (I’ll keep you updated via Instagram). Ever since I spotted Miss Maddalena a while ago, it has been on my wishlist! These past few months, I’ve really loved crossbody bags, since they make life so much easier. Especially when I am running around town all day, I love having my hands free for car keys, cell phone, a coffee on the go and of course my camera. My flared jeans are packed as well, and this is one look that I’d love to wear these next few days.

HOTEL REVIEW: Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi

For the first part of our stay in Abu Dhabi, we decided on the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri, which is located across the canal from the stunning Sheikh Zayed Mosque. The second I saw the view on the hotel photos, I was sold. Plus, the entire hotel is styled in Arabic decor, which is something I wanted. Usually I prefer more modern interios, however, for Abu Dhabi, I thought the more traditional look was perfect. Greeted by dates and coffee, we immediately loved the place. Even more when we entered our room (we booked a deluxe room) and saw the private balcony and canal view – of course with the mosque in the background.
