About La Signorina



Hi babes welcome to my site! Simply Signorina is a lifestyle blog with an Italian twist created by Diane Marie Pisera (La Signorina) focusing on fashion, cuisine, and travel.

The Inspo

Ever since I was a little girl I always loved fashion and was always trying on my mom’s clothing and having pretend fashion shows with my Barbie dolls. I was raised with very strong Italian roots which means spending a lot of time in the kitchen. From when I was a child my nonna and I spent a lot of time cooking together and I’m so thankful for those wonderful memories and traditions that she passed on to me.

.I always believed that how you style clothing is way more important than the price tag. I was always one to believe that you can style an affordable look and make it look more expensive and fabulous. Through Simply Signorina I want to encourage women to look their best at any price point.

A Little Bit About Me

 I was born in Palmanova, a quaint suburban town located in the north eastern region of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Although I was born in northern Italy, my roots are Calabrese and both of my parents and families are from Francavilla Angitola, a small town located in the province of Vibo Valentia, Calabria. At nine years old, I moved to Westchester County, a suburban neighborhood just outside of New York City. 

During high school I attended the Fashion Design & Merchandise program at Southern Westchester Boces and then later on got my MBA in Marketing with a minor in International Business from Iona College. In the meantime I worked at Michael Kors, Club Monaco, the Westchester Italian Cultural Center, and Conair. I always remember being the go-to girl with my friends when it came to putting together an outfit. I honestly always appreciated the years that I spent working in retail because I was able to style clients so it was always fun in a way and taught me hard work.

The Beginning of Simply Signorina-"I just went for it!"

In 2019, after years of contemplating starting a blog, I decided to pull the trigger and just go for it! I was always too scared to start because I never felt like I was ready and was always one to care about others’ opinion but one day I just decided that it was time to stop overthinking and just do it! I ventured off into the blogging world and decided to teach myself some new skills that are vital in today’s world. I decided to turn my love for fashion, the traditions that were instilled in me from a young age, and my appreciation for traveling into my own blog.
