Nutcracker

itscamilleco.com2013061019

I don’t know how I managed to take outfit shots right outside of Duomo. It’s one of the most visited tourist spots in Florence so you can just imagine how crowded this place can get. I definitely got lucky.

Or… God was watching and He said, let’s give this poor girl a chance and let her take outfit shots with this beautiful church as her backdrop.

Told you God is watching us. God is watching us… from a distance. (Breaks into song. LOL!)

Cathedrals in Europe are always so grand and majestic and the Duomo is no different. It takes your breath away really. I can stare at it all day.

Good thing I can take photos of the church’s interiors as well. But before I show you these photos, let’s get my outfit details out of the way first.

It’s my female nutcracker costume! Just kidding. It’s really the hat that reminds me of nutcrackers. But how can I resist this cutie? No one can make fun of my hat… or else! I love it to bits and actually have it in red as well.

I think my hat is also the reason why I caught some tourists sneakily taking photos of me as well. They were probably thinking, “oh hey, Asia girl in costume!” I’m proud to say I was actually ready for one tourist’s camera and even made the trademark Asian peace sign. LOL! I played the part well. The tourist was delighted. She better caption my photo on her Facebook nicely. Pfft.

Anyway, on to my outfit!

Here are a few photos of the Duomo that I managed to take. I think I was able to visit this cathedral already years before but I just had to show it to my mom. I could see that she was amazed by how beautiful it is. She even took photos of the place on her iPhone which isn’t a usual sight! *clap clap*

I prayed for my all my loved ones and lit a candle for them.

Dear loved ones, thank me later. Just kidding!

    …I doubt it kung yung hat mo lang ang reason why those tourists took a photo of you, or photos… Perhaps because they find you so pretty.:))

    Dress pala yang suot mo?! Wish you took pics of it without the blazer para kita. Curios ako kung anong whole itsura.

      Haha! Let’s hope they didn’t think I’m weird. :) Normal lang, this dress is just a sleeveless shift dress :)

    Hello Camille,

    I’m kinda curious, did you wash/laundry your blazer? I noticed this is the 3rd time you wear it. Also, do you know how to iron or do your own laundry? how about cooking? Love the outfit as always ^^

    • itscamilleco

      I had it done at the hotel :) I don’t know how to cook LOL! During my foreign exchange program, I could only fry and microwave! I’m really not domesticated :( I did use our dorm’s washing machine and dryer though. Never used the iron. :)

        Hahaha! Oh no, you better find a guy who knows how to do all these things for you! In short, domesticated husband or bf! Atleast now, we know this side of yours :))

    I was just reading about Duomo on Dan Brown’s Inferno! At least I got treated to a visual tour through your blog! ;) and I love your Charlotte Olympia flats! Good thing you chose this over the Chanel espadrilles. But for me, I have to settle with those from Zara that looks like it on my next trip to Manila.

      I think that’s the Duomo in Milan. Or is he referring to this one? Yes! I like the Chanel ones too, but they’re completely sold out :(

        He was referring to this one =) ahhh yes, abangerz na lang ang peg ;) I don’t know if you remember, but I mentioned before in a comment how you have a lot of items that’s similar to Chiara Ferragni. Wala lang, she has both the Chanel and kitty flats =)

    That beautiful church is AMAZING! I bet it’s even more wonderful in person! Wish I could visit as well.

    Miss Camille, your hat has got to be my favorite part of your outfit shot. I got tickled tomato when you mentioned you have a red one! I hope to see you wear it soon. Anyway, your Nutcracker outfit was a great compliment to your quirky character. I wish I could draw a music box background for you!

    I don’t know why but your nutcracker outfit or the word nutcracker itself reminds me of Christmas. I say the backdrop is worth the attention of the tourists. I hope you will post a picture with the peace sign. Hehe. :)
