This has become one of my newly top searched websites that I am now addicted to. My recent acceptance to Italy has made me crazed for looking up classic Italian style (i.e. the epitome of an Italian women, Sophia Loren) and seeing how fashionistas dress over in Italia, a country that is literally shaped like a perfect Gucci boot! With that said, I'm sure I will not be disappointed when I arrive and outfit watch for the first few months. I have been looking up the Vogue-Italia website every morning, dissecting the colors, textures and fabrics that they incorporate in their perfect European outfits. This weekend my mom will be coming down to visit me and my mission for these next couple of days is to convince my mom into switching over from our Vogue-US subscription, to Vogue-Italia. Not that I am not crazy about our fashion in the states, but considering I will be living in Italy for the next year, I find it very responsible of me to pump some Italian fashion 101 into my brain before I take off.
These pictures (via Vogue. it) are what I cannot wait to recreate and put a little American spin on when I get to Florence. I love how these Italian ladies elude so much confidence in their own skin. I hope I'll pick some of that up as well as some killer Mui Mui platforms!... leather jackets, rompers, satchels, dramatic jewelry, floral dresses, and the list goes on and on...

In my 20 (almost 21) years of life in California, this has been by far on my top ten list of most incredible days ever. I just received, literally seconds ago, a letter saying that I got accepted into a program to study abroad in Florence, Italy...for all of next year!! I am on cloud nine and my mind is just in shock trying to process this fantastico news! I’m a pretty big planner, so I can't wait to start organizing when I will go, what clothes to bring and where to shop, although I don’t think that will be to hard to pick up very quickly. In the back of my mind, my intention for this blog was to document the culture, food, fashion (duh) of Europe and my travels throughout the countries, so I am thankfully to know that I will be given this chance to do just that! I guess now all I have to do is wipe off the dust from my Rosetta Stone and learn Italian in four months!
Here are a few of my favorite pics from when I traveled throughout Italy this past summer with my boyfriend. This trip really got me obsessed with all things Italian and hooked on Gelato, specifically gelato from Vivoli...
