One week later and I am in Madrid now, relieved that I finally have reliable wifi access so that I can let you in on my shopping travels… Milan, as usual, was amazing. No doubt, shopping in the summer time is glorious… eating gelato while window shopping, feeling the mediterranean sun on bare skin and the best part is that trying clothes on is not such a chore because there no layers to peel off.
Safiya has been a great shopping buddy and her opinion on what she thinks is hot or not was truly valued. We walked the famous high-fashion vie and side streets, taking pictures of window displays that showcased unusual items.
I particularly loved these Dolce & Gabbana dresses at the boutique on Via Della Spiga where indoor escalators connect the gigantic store. I tried on this fuschia lace dress in the window. The Audrey Hepburn style was flattering and so was the colour but for a hefty R10 000 it was a little out of my budget.
