Style Profile...Veronica Falco, Milan

When I'm travelling I just let go. Exploring an unknown city with no plans. Approaching some people and getting introduced to new places. But sometimes I feel a little bit lost. Especially when I'm in a country where people speak bad English. Therefore I asked Veronica for a small guide to Milan and some thoughts about fashion.

Describe your personal style.

I would describe it as romantic and classic. I love long skirts and dresses, and lace and leather together. I always try to be feminine.

Sources of inspiration?

Generally I buy 3 to 4 fashion magazines a month, skim through the pages and find inspiration in the editorials. Furthermore, I visit 15 to 20 fashion blogs a day. So my mind is full of inspiration!

Style icons?

Actresses like Olivia Palermo, Whitney Port or models like Bianca Balti or Chanel Iman.

What’s your favorite piece of clothing that you own? and what piece of clothing would you want that you don't already have?

I'm in love with the long skirts and long dresses in my wardrobe and I would like to have more bags and shoes. I can't stop buying them.

Favorite stores in Milan?

Manee Store - Via della Madonnina 10

Marc by Marc Jacobs - Piazza del Carmine 6

Cavalli e Nastri (an amazing vintage store ) - Via Brera 2

Best Shopping Area?

Milan's fashion triangle: Via Monte Napoleone, Via Della Spiga, Via S. Andrea, via Manzoni.

Favorite place to have a night out?

I would suggest "Brera" or "Corso Como" where you can find some cool pubs or lounge bars.

Favorite café in your neighbourhood?

I'm not really into my neighbourhood, but in Marghera there is a cute Café called Chococult where you can try some good chocolates or cakes.

Best place to eat?

I love Japanese or Argentine cuisine. You can find an amazing Asian restaurant at Via Vigevano. And at "Don Juan" you can eat the best Argentine meat ever.

What kind of advice would you give someone interested in visiting Milan?

I would suggest doing some shopping at Via Montenapoleone, eat a good sandwich at California Bakery, and have a cup of coffee at the Rinascente's Terrace. You will have a great view there.
