Well, come on!
It’s been a long time since I’ve done a fashion post, right?
And perhaps because I’ve just returned from Italy, the Dolce & Gabbana show in Milan yesterday had me positively swooning!
So much colour, detail, FUN!!
All those lovely gelato colours…
For you, Bella,
A little music to accompany your stroll through the streets of Italy
“The inspiration for the collection ees all the toureeests. We discover why all this kind of people come from outside of Italy to here…becus for us, eet ees normal to watch a coliseum, we are bohrn eere, but for the rest of the world, ees unique”
Stephano Gabbana (see the rest of the clip and a little glimpse of the show in the link at end of post)
Coconut…one of my personal favourites.
We loved discovering all the hidden gardens in Florence and Rome
And for a girl shopping for floor tiles right now, I was in inspiration heaven in Florence and Rome 🙂
Yes, that’s a big orange tassel on my bag (that I bought in the hotel gift shop when BRITISH AIRWAYS lost my luggage)
Going to a wedding…
Look at the size of the people next to those columns. No cranes back in the day People. HOW????
“The cathedral was begun at the end of the 13th century by Arnolfo di Cambio, and the dome, which dominates the exterior, was added in the 15th century on a design of Filippo Brunelleschi. A statue to each of these important architects can be found outside to the right of the cathedral, both admiring their work for the rest of eternity. Can you imagine it took two centuries for the cathedral to be deemed finished?” via visitflorence.com
So, I guess in some ways, construction is still the same as it ever was….*

What can I say about this ??
Guest book at the Four Seasons Hotel, Florence
The Pantheon dome. Incredible light, even more incredible architecture. More than 1,800 years old.
ONE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED YEARS
The coliseum. Mind bending in both a good and bad way.
A very hot and windy day to visit…and lest you’re thinking ‘Oh there’s Slim wearing her husband’s pyjamas in public again”
Still one of my favourite looks of all time, which I won’t be ‘retiring’ (see what I did there?) anytime soon ( See Slumber in the Streets )
The models took selfies with their embellished iPhones – a cute idea. Why not?!
I mean if this
was me, were me, if I were her, I’d be selfie-ing my face off 24/7!!
and that’s Amore folks!
