Such an honor to be among the world’s 40 top fashion bloggers, invited to Luisaviaroma’s Firenze4Ever 3rd edition! I’m still wrapping my head around everything that happened in Florence. Hold onto the handrails; here come a million photos…

Thank you to Luisa Via Roma for featuring me in a Styling Lab page; I was among the first five bloggers to be profiled. “Choosing strong, directional pieces from the Fall/Winter 2011 collections, La Carmina’s show stopping style is not for the faint hearted! Working military inspired jackets, Versace and Alexander McQueen, the Japanese blogger mixed it up with fierce prints and some streetwear inspired elements.”

Let’s begin with my travel misadventure. I transferred in Frankfurt, and then the small plane couldn’t land in Florence due to strong tailwinds! So I had to land in Bologna and bus to Florence, followed by a cab. Since it wasn’t possible to drop me at the door, I wandered for 40 minutes looking for the hotel…

But Sebastiano Serafini and I can always pull it together. We dressed at warp speed and made it to the opening cocktail party.

After the party, Camilla took us for gelato at La Carraia. Licking yogurt nutella and dark chocolate gelato, on the famed Ponte Vecchio (bridge over the Arno River)… heaven!

Luisaviaroma interviewed us on the first day; the short video is above and here.
