Welcome to my home, my dearest Italians.
It’s been a KRAYYYYZEEE 48 hours. The journey started at Florence airport where I checked in my bags for my flight to Frankfurt.

It’s only January but I’m so thrilled to get my hands on the new Spring 2013 merchandise that’s slowly trickling in at my favourite shops. This metallic Burberry Prorsum coat is pretty major. I’m not afraid of anything that shines!
My favourite online superstore Luisa Via Roma hosted a lovely dinner last night at Palazzo Capponi. As y’all know (from instagram, from twitter), I’m back in Florence once again for the bi-annual Luisa Via Roma Firenze4Ever event. I LOVE visiting Florence. It’s my favourite Italian city and oh so inspiring! Also happy to reunite with my real-life friends. Fun times all around!
Are you Florence-bound this spring? From now until June 1, 2012, the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum has a new exhibition called “Secret Archives”. The museum (Piazza Santa Trinita 5/2, Florence) is open every day from 10AM to 6PM except on Tuesday. For more information, visit http://www.museoferragamo.com.
I like the cocooning effect from my oversized gray Cachentta coat. With all the things going on in my life at the moment, the sheer coziness from a warm coat enveloping me keeps my sanity intact.

Another gorgeous, picture-perfect afternoon in Florence. The only thing that’s missing are two mini-bottles of sparkly wine or champagne…
It’s all good when you have an amazing balcony overlooking the gorgeous Piazza della Repubblica in Florence. Excuse my messy hotel room… this is what happens when you live out of a suitcase… or four!!!
After much coaxing from Rumi, I bought this cute pair of virgin wool/nylon trackpants from high street brand Stefanel the other day. I must say it’s one of the comfiest things I got recently. They’re surprisingly soft, lightweight, and there’s literally no itch factor. It’s Pitti season in Florence so why not pair something oh so sporty with a navy jacket? I like the end result…

How are your finances doing? There are tons of amazing sales EVERYWHERE and my wallet is currently going through a beating. Now I know how Rumi felt when she said it feels like being hit by a bus after walking out of a store with her new acquisitions. I fell in love with this stunning Antonio Marras brocade coat (click HERE) when I saw it on the mannequin. I love the rabbit fur collar and the lovely fabric. It’s good. I initially tried to weasel my out of the purchase thinking, well, it’s a coat. Money is best spent on bags and shoes if one wants mileage… but you know what, when it comes to the sales, you have to follow your heart and your desires. Yes, I do need a new designer bag but it’s gonna be cold for a few more months… a gorgeous coat is still reasonable purchase this time of the year.
