Everyone seems to be flocking to Florence this week to buy boots and leather jackets!
Been a rainy day today, but still warm. Chia wears her lightweight raincoat on days like this.
Chia has so much fun shopping for boots! We think she needs some booties in green leather!
Best thing about the weather turning colder is that we can wear boots again! Here in Italy, the women wear boots even in the summer, but the fall boots are more to my liking.
Short boots are all the rage, of course. They can be worn with pants, or with dresses and skirts. Those who have problems getting boots to fit their calves are really in luck with the short boots!
I love these tall black boots with just a bit of detail.
Or for a change from black, I favor these gray suede boots. Would look great with jeans tucked inside!
Of course we all “need” a new handbag for fall! Fabio has just brought these to me. Such gorgeous workmanship and materials- blue suede, reversible bucket bag and woven in a beautiful color I cannot describe.
There were a couple more, too, but they were snatched up immediately. One by me!
And the winner for my new fall handbag is this cavallino and calfskin leather:
“Needed” a new black bag…I also saw it in navy blue suede and leather as well as deep red. Was so tempted that I may “need” to go back for the navy too….
I love my earrings and necklaces, but really I prefer rings and bracelets because I can see them all the time when I wear them. The goldsmith is making me a ring created from an old one my mother gave me. I didn’t like the style AT ALL, so he is using the stones and gold to create something I think I will love. Have been asked to post new pictures of jewelry, so here you go!
Multi colored diamond ring, white gold ring, leather with gold and diamonds in bracelets. Rose or yellow gold with semi-precious stones.
And what about this cream colored leather coat??? It would look just as wonderful with jeans tucked into boots as it would over a dressy outfit.
Fabio has created 3 new bags of the same design, but in different materials and colors! Wow!!!
This brown python bag is a piece of artwork for sure.
I told him how much everyone loved the gray suede and camel woven bags he did last spring, so he graciously made one in black. I think I am in love!
Chia seems to be a little bored with the handbags, however. She is way more excited about chasing the pigeons in the piazza!
