Hey girls! Finally autumn has returned! And you know what I love the most? New clothes obviously! Friday-night dinners!
And personally I organize them with my friends in my new apartment. Yes girls, it is a way to relax from a hellish week during which we are always on the go. We never stop… Rome… Milan… London… always on the train or in an airplane all week long discussing things with the boss, and then FINALLY oplà!It’s Friday! And like every “human fashion blogger” that respects… Me and my friends get together over a sparkling drink and toast from wherever we’re nestled in my tiny apartment–in chairs, on the couch, scattered about the floor with pillows and cushions–eat and drink good wine!
You know how I adore working in fashion… every instant of my life… and so you know that there is one fundamental thing that I cannot have missing from these get-togethers. What is it? A dinner set by DISHESONLY of course! So for those of you who aren’t familiar with Dishesonly, this shop was born from the idea of a young entrepreneurial woman, Anna Laura and quite a strong woman she is–with a passion for furniture and design, but what’s more: she adores glamour. Having amassed many years of managing and consulting experience in national and multinational businesses, she was not stopped by the economic crisis. Do you know how? She decided to reinvent profession… and found… guess what, DISHESONLY!
Yes, my dear fashion addicts, Anna Laura is like us, a bright, dynamic woman that wished to follow her dream and did it! Indeed she does more still rendering us women part of her dream thanks to her website DISHESONLY where we find all the glamorous things we love. We can find the table setting of our dreams. DISHESONLY exclusively selects for us artisan and even limited edition pieces. Think a second, that means she can provide us with dishware that is completely unique!

What better way to simplify life than by utilizing this website to find the perfect, super glamorous list of wedding needs all provided by DISHESONLY. I will tell you about this fabulous service in still greater length in another article to come.
For now, for anyone who would like to see the collections of DISHESONLYin person, you can find them at Society Limonata, (Rome and Milan) Dordas Flowers (Rome), La Fonderia (Rome), and Il Fantoio (Capalbio). You can also find them in the shopping center on Via Alberto Moravia 107 with a reservation.
Now is the time to let you see the products that DISHESONLY has so well chosen for my Friday night dinner gathering! Personally my super glamor soul was raptured by this set of plates from the “DallaTerra” line.
I mainly chose the colors but these plates have a great backstory dating back to–take a guess–1964, when Italian restaurants began the trend to their culinary creations presented on dishware all their own. They contracted ceramic producers from Solimene di Vietri, and stupendous hand-made creations were born with naif style painting (I love the naif style).
You know something else that cannot be missing from my Friday-night table gathering? The bowls! I have chosen a model called “Anemone” and this dish too has a fantastic history also dating back to 1964. This year was also the time when two designers, Yvonne Rosetti and Giancarlo Livori were inspired by the fantasy of the sun and sands of Grottomare in order to create these fantastic bowls. Their form is an elegant and luminous one both antique and contemporary at the same time!
Do you like my choices? Have you given an eye to the website DISHESONLY? Which pieces do you want to utilize? Perhaps you want to share your super glamorous ideas with us in our comments!
While I was writing this article—you know I’m always multi-tasking—I was wondering, and want to know your thoughts on wearing black. We shall talk very soon on this in my blog.
