Back home for Christmas with the first analogic photo collection of Mel Rose Place. A gray day in an uncommon Roman location; a first-time experiment with unexpected — or expected — good results.

Merry Christmas to all!

Special thanks to Manuel Succi for the amazing pictures and their manual photographic processing.You can see his work on www.manuelsucci.com.

The weather during las weekend was great so we took a walk to take some photos around the beautiful Rome. The ones you see here were taken on the Flaminio bridge along Corso Francia, one of the many bridges that cross the Tiber river. It is the next to the famous Ponte Milvio, where every couple in love lays a lock to symbolize their compromise.

I found this jacket on the Mango sales and I loved it since I saw it. Super comfortable, filled of flowers and with a bomber cut, it’s perfect for the last days of the Roman winter. It had to be the protagonist of the outfit, so I chose a couple of black skinny jeans and a white large T-shirt (men’s one). I’ve been looking for a basic white T-shirt for a while and this one is The One; made of super soft cotton and very large as I wanted it, do you like it? I love the comfy touch that gives to the look and I think I’ll use it a lot now that spring is starting to bloom. The shoes, from Pertini, are my daily partners on the working days; they match pretty well with everything and, without ever playing the main role, they put the elegant point to the most basic outfits.

During the last months I’ve been looking everywhere for a pair of black bootcut jeans and those are the most similar thing I found, on H&M. I liked the idea of a simple outfit with an army green shirt and a pair of black high-heeled booties.

As Roman winter is not very cold, a wool short jacket is enough for going out during the day time. Together with my Mary Poppins bag (I can put everything inside) as an accessory, we have an easy work outfit for the week.

What do you think about it?
