NYFW WHAT IS WAS

#NYFW- What it was, What it wasn’t.

Fashion Week is over. Finally! Is it me or does it feel like every other week is fashion week somewhere someplace? Right? And New York goes on forever… so much so the rhythm gets lost in the groove. This season was no different. It gets there in the end, makes us tired before we get to […]

Miracles & The Bell Tower- Pisa

I was many things in my former life, a fancy notebook, a fabulous handbag, a beautiful set of desk organisers, a rockstar but I am almost certain I was an Italian, and in my next life I will be an Italian. From the glorious hills of Tuscany, Florentine to be more specific. I love Italy. […]

Vagabond- See in Paris; Beauté Congo 1926-2015
