Does everything look better in Italy?

  This is a picture of 1 of the many windows of Salvatore Ferragamo store in Florence. Positioned at the end of hall way and locked up behind an iron gate at nights. It’s super simple but so pretty. Italians make the simplest, most regular thing look spectacular. Can some one please send me back to Florence?

Acqua dell’Elba…

  Whenever I’m away on vacation as a treat for myself I buy something that is strictly available within the region I’m traveling. While I was in Siena and walking up and down Via Banchi di Spora, I kept smelling this wonderful scent every time I walked by this mysteriously calm looking store named Acqua Dell’Elba. After awhile I realized that they spray a scent out on to the street and it smelled like clean fresh breeze and ocean. I couldn’t help but close my eyes and think of walking on a warm sandy beach.

Fiat 500 By Gucci

For years now I’ve been talking with my friends to go back to Italy where we all met for the first time during a university abroad program in a little town called Siena. After hearing about the launch of 500 by Gucci during the Milan Fashion Week, I think I have more reasons to make that trip sooner than later. I would love to give this car a try because the first family car related memories that I have is from our little red Fiat 128, another reason is that it would be fun to zip through all the narrow streets in Siena with the 500 and lets face it, this car is super stylish and adorable!   500 by Gucci is a collaboration between the Italian car maker and Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini to celebrate Gucci’s 90th anniversary. The 500 by Gucci will initially be available from April 1st to June 30th (in Italy), exclusively by pre-order online at http://www.500bygucci.com, starting from 17,000 euros or about $24,000. But if that’s a big price …
