Florentine designer Sofia Sizzi has worked at Gucci, Donna Karan, and Calvin Klein Collection, but since 2011, she has been at the helm of her own label Giulietta.

Here, she shares her favorite stores, her go-to nighttime accessories, and her New Year’s resolution.

A black mini dress and Saint Laurent patent block heels.

I am currently into my Comme des Garçons faux fur bolero over my black '60s vintage coat.

Finishing touches:
I wear my wedding band every day, because it is custom-made by my best friend Carlotta. It's simple and just perfect!
