GOING TO ITALY! FIRENZE4EVER, LUISAVIAROMA FASHION BLOGGER EVENT IN FLORENCE, JUNE 2011. HOSTELBOOKERS HOTELS, VENICE & MILAN.
Ciao, Italia! Sebastiano and I will be in Italy in June… on a sponsored trip! Pizza and gelato? Fashion-forward photoshoot in a gondola? You bet your palle (balls).
From June 9-11, Seba and I will be special guests at Firenze4Ever III. It’s an extravaganza for top fashion bloggers around the world, presented by designer boutique LuisaViaRoma.
LuisaViaRoma is flying us to Florence and taking care of us for three days. We’ll be creating and modeling designer outfits in Styling Lab, with the support of international fashion designers (Rick Owens, Gareth Pugh and more). Rumor is, Sarah Jessica Parker will be attending the festivities!
If you’re in Italy… with a pretty male model… who doubles as a translator / tour guide… you might as well do some traveling, right?
Our favoloso friends at Hostelbookers are hooking us up with hotels all over Italy, so that we can share our travel experiences with you! Hostelbookers is a magnifico travel site that provides budget hotels and hostels in over 100 countries, with no booking fee. (Their new site, AnyTrip.com, lets you plan a budget holiday all in one place. Perfect for young vagabonders.)
Can’t wait until June, when Seba and I will be exploring Florence, Milan and Venice. (Staying in this gorgeous hotel by Piazza San Marco, courtesy of Hostelbookers!) We’ll meet up with my cousin, and visit Seba’s family in Northern Italy. And we have Italian photoshoots and TV appearances in the works…
Did you know Sebastiano Serafini plays Luca, the Italian otaku student in the Japanese hit TV drama, Nihonjin no Shiranai Nihongo? (日本人の知らない日本語) His fan Ami made this compilation. I added the titles; the song — sung by Seba — is by Tim. Swoon at the video above and on my YouTube.
Italy, here we come! Got recommendations for places to visit in Florence, Milan and Venice? Please leave your suggestions in the comments — I’d love to check them out.
Song of the Day: Surechigai, sung by Sebastiano in the new video.
