If you are headed to Rome before 30 July 2024, you may want to rent a car or hire a driver to visit Fondazione Iris to see the new exhibition Manna Rain by artist Rita Ackermann presented by the Amanita Gallery in a space was one of the previous homes of artist Cy Twombly.   According […]

Every time I post for one particular luxury retail partnership, I receive messages requesting less expensive options. For certain partnerships, I am often restricted to new deliveries or certain parameters but for almost all my other posts, I try my hardest to include fashion in all price points and with inclusive sizing. As I’ve mentioned […]

One of the most asked questions recently was what to wear to Italy this summer. There is no better place to find the chicest fashions for your summer travels than Net-a-Porter. I put together three outfits inspired by three Italian destinations that would work well across the country and Europe as well. The first is […]

Yes, I wear a lot of neutrals but they work in the colder months in NYC. When I go for color and pattern, it’s for resort trips and summer soirees. Sézane just launched their latest collection today photographed in an Italian palazzo and I went a little nutty buying dresses and tops for warmer weather. […]

I reposted a meme this weekend that asked, “Before Instagram, were people always on vacation?”. It has felt like people have been away all summer but right now it’s compounded by the fact that most Europeans are on holiday for two weeks or even the whole month of August. So if you can’t beat ’em, […]

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a love/hate relationship with the HBO show Succession. I don’t like the nouveau riche ridiculousness but I do love it when they shoot on location at a historic house. Episode Eight of Season Three which just aired on Sunday, was shot this past summer in Italy and might be […]

En Vacances 2021

08 . 17 . 21

I always find it amazing that the whole of Europe can be en vacances at the same exact time. I exaggerate of course, but only slightly. I haven’t done a color post in a while so this one is inspired by holidays spend on Greek isles and Italian beaches. @valerieleberichel @aerin Belted lace-trimmed cotton dress […]

I started following designer Camilla Guinness on Instagram earlier this year and was thinking about putting a post together. Today, her villa in Tuscany was featured on House & Garden so it felt like the perfect time. She shares the house named Arniano that she decorated with her daughters Amber and Claudia. Amber lives in […]

Whether you’re traveling to the French Riviera or just want to look like you are, the new Goop July G. Label Core Collection has you covered. The photos of Gwyneth modeling along the Mediterranean are very glammed up but I still love last year’s Core G. Label Collection photographed by her husband during quarantine. The […]

I’m always in awe of women who started their own companies when most women weren’t even working outside of the home. Loretta Caponi earned how to embroider at the age of nine and opened her boutique in Florence in 1967. Her signature nightgowns made of cotton, linen, and silk and later table linens and bedding […]

Palazzo Sacchetti

07 . 17 . 20

Since we can’t travel the world right now, the next best thing is to travel virtually. Today, Gucci showed their Gucci Epilogue collection at the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome and I took a deep dive into its historic beauty. Palazzo Sacchetti is one of the most beautiful late Renaissance buildings in all of Rome. The […]

I wish movie studios would release all new films on demand as well as in theaters now so people have the option of staying home. I ventured downtown last weekend to see The Burnt Orange Heresy but after I saw a girl put lip gloss on her finger and they apply it to her lips […]

Have you ever dreamed of living the luxurious life of Valentino and his business partner and friend Giancarlo Giammetti? Well, now you can since they are selling their lavish summer home, Villa La Vagnola, in Tuscany for €12 million or $13,297,872 USD. The duo bought the property in 1986 and previously listed for sale in […]

If you are anywhere in Italy from now until 2021, make sure you plan a visit to the Palazzo Grimani in Venice. It re-opened this summer with the spectacular Domus Grimani 1594 – 2019 exhibition after major restoration work which is the result of several architectural interventions carried out in the sixteenth century by Giovanni […]

As I mentioned yesterday, Mezzaore Hotel and Thermal Spa is part of the Pellicano Group of hotels. The iconic coral exteriors and crenellated watchtower built high up on the cliff in the 16th and 17th centuries has amazing views that the group could not resist. The family acquired the Ischia property six months ago and […]

Marie-Louise Sciò is CEO of her family’s legendary Pellicano Group which includes Hotel Il Pellicano, La Posta Vecchio, and Mezzatore Hotel. She’s not well known outside the world of luxury travel but that’s probably about to change. She has just curated an exclusive edit of holiday looks for Matchesfashion alongside her fashion editor friend Robert […]

Castello di Potentino

03 . 26 . 19

I fell in love with the story of Castello di Potentino in T Magazine this weekend. If you’ve ever dreamed of owning a villa in Tuscany, this story is a bit of a cautionary tale of just how much work it can take to bring back a “bedraggled historic estate” to its former glory. Charlotte […]
