Italian fashion inspiration

Two weeks away in Tuscany and Rome was a much needed trip after the weddings. As soon as we touched down in Italy, I started to hear the angels singing as I saw the unique fashions pass me by. The roman sandals, fabulous bags, parachute pants and sunglasses were all calling my name.
And now I feel inspired by the soft Italian leather, classy lines and women dressed to the nine. Honey and I would turn a corner and I would see into a dress shop and my breath would be taken away.

So the Italians truly have secrets about food, love and fashion.

But the shoes were just fabulous and amazing. I could have bought so many pairs and made them my own. I took one pair home and I promise they will be worn out soon.

Fashion is an art and then it takes the woman to carry it off. Can you feel her confidence in this bold red trench?

And this was a typical storefront in Florence. What made me stop dead in my tracks were the gorgeous children clothes shops. The Italian children were dressed so well.

I discovered that my own fashion sense tends to be European. Blame it on my English family, but my clothes were similar to the fashion trends.

I feel forever changed and inspired by the Italian fashion trends sweetie. What has inspired you on your travels? Do you still use your inspiration today?

Great pics! I'm always inspired by the bold colors and prints in Latin America. Leather sandals, sun dresses, and hand made jewelry are my addictions.
