Hotblooded, passionate creatures. What is sexier than a woman who is full to bursting with passion and won’t take sh*t from anyone?
Throughout college we spent a lot of time traveling around Italy, observing the mindset of the Italian woman. The Sophia Loren archetype has been such an inspiration that we named this blog after our fantasy of using fashion to empower you with the inner confidence of the fierce Italian woman. Sadly, for many women in America, our self image can really take a daily beating. We despise the unhappiness this creates. Part of our happiness as women comes from the inner feeling of feeling damn good about ourselves, of feeling that we are worth it. This feeling of worth honoring our individuality is the key to sexy.
And if we find this elusive feeling how do we sustain it? The ultimate secret behind ‘sexy’ is being happy enough with yourself that you don’t seek the approval of anyone. It is the naturalness and lack of artifice that Italian women possess – a product of authentic confidence. We find the effortless Italian women sexy because they don’t seem to care if you or anyone think they’re sexy – it’s merely an inadvertent consequence.
Feeling sexy on the inside isn’t about pleasing other people. It is about building confidence within and establishing a positive self-reference point for yourself. Not only will you feel good about your attributes and project them outwardly, your confidence will be apparent. Feeling sexy on the inside can mean appearing sexy on the outside!
So live La Dolce Vita and stand tall, revel in your female power and beauty, and enjoy romance like an Italian woman.
