Sales in Milan

 sales hunting...
this year I had few hours in one busy week and I decided to go.
Everybody likes to travel first class but pay for economy.
It is my Husband's line... it works today very well.
I wear my Max Mara The Cube, a ponytail  and a good pair of low heels boots
(my friend Alessandra calls it my Komabat Uniform).
My idea was to go places I usually do not go to.

Mango was my first stop..WHAT A SURPRISE!
The store is huge and well kept and the items are well displayed.
I reach for a metallic tank top that has Missoni written all over....
on sale for 12.99 euro
hands off, it is mine.
Then I spot a 100% cotton tank, perfect for layering...
 3.49 euro
Ok, this is fun !!

While I am at the cash registers I pick up they new catalogue...
ohh! my my
the defilè is to die for ! Isabeli Fontana in the long chiffon peach dress:
a dream, I must have that dress !!! and a long list of items too.
Including the 2 piece suit for travel that I always brag about.
More later on this issue, now GALS we have some shopping to do.

Lets keep going...

O.M.G. !!!
I adore these flashy earrings....
7 euros a pair
from a little street vendor (legal)
in Corso Vittorio Emanuele, in fron at H&M
below the Duomo Cathedral, a tiny boutique once the resale for lotto tickets.
The man is Indian and sells lovely chandelier earrings,
fun for a night out or a dinner in Marrakech.

Back to MANGO

I have a second thought
inspired by the divine Diana Vreeland
I indulged in two (the last ones)
cuff ponyhair bracelets.
down to 14.99 each !!

Piazza 5 Giornate, Milano
the home department and EATALY grocery store,
located in the basement, are a must.
These two vases in bronze will work for my basil plants.
from 14.99 to 8 euros each.
I love to keep fresh basil in chic pots on my kitchen counters, always pair things.
At EATALY, now in New York and Tokyo as well
I found lots of Italian specialty products, great gifts too.
I purchased some Specialty Pasta from Naples and
an organic tomato sauce, both 1 euro each for their special anniversary sale.

Tipically 50% off
but with this economy not only you will find an amazing
quantity of items but at further discounts too.
Check inside the stores for more reductions.

shoes are execptional in Italy
at a bargain even better !
Just make sure you buy MADE IN ITALY
the quality is very important.
PS: Phoebe, good decision on the boots.

 ISLO shoes by Isabella Lorusso
very nice, don't you think?

Still some money left for a Caffè
what a great fun afternoon !!
