Ciao bella! This week I traveled to beautiful Milano and have enjoyed a lot of time sight-seeing. In the four days I’ve been here I have seen and learned a lot. This is the first country I have been to outside of the states so each experience has been new and exciting for me! Here are my three favorite places I have visited so far!
Duomo di Milano
The Duomo Cathedral is one of Italy’s largest and most famous attractions. It is the world’s largest Gothic cathedral and second largest Catholic cathedral. Duomo di Milano is dedicated to Saint Mary of the Nativity. It took nearly six centuries to build beginning in 1386, being completed in 1965. You are also able to visit inside which is personally my favorite part. Stay tuned for my vlog to see more!
Fun Fact: Duomo di Milano has more statues than any other building in the world with a total of 3,159 statues.
The Navigli is also a very famous attraction in Milan, Italy. The neighborhood is dated all the way back to 1179. The waterways were initially built to connect Milan to the nearby lakes to transport goods which included precious marble from Candoglia, used to build Duomo di Milano.
Fun Fact: Legend has it that Leonardo Da Vinci helped develop the renovation of Milan’s canals in 1482.
Corso Como 10
Corso Como 10 is a very famous concept store in Milan, Italy. In 1990, Carla Sozzani, former fashion editor and publisher, opened a gallery featuring art, photography, fashion, and design called Galleria Carla Sozzani. It is located in garage 10 of Corso Como in Milan. More than 250 exhibitions have taken place here. It is a great place for both tourists and locals. Corso Como 10 also has a cafe which makes it a perfect place for lunch!
Fun Fact: The gallery has its own publishing company which is dedicated to art, photography, fashion, and design like the gallery.
Milan is a very beautiful city with many different attractions and things to do! I have only been here four days and have already experienced so much. Being in the world’s fashion capital has been a dream come true for me! If you love fashion and art as much as I do then you will be sure to love it to! Stay tuned for more adventure! Ciao!
From brands such as ASOS to Sean John, Gucci has been the muse of the moment. Bold, vibrant, embellished designs are trending rapidly in this season’s fashion. Other elements such as heavy use of dark colors and transparency has also played a large factor this season. Here is a compilation of fashions both Gucci authentic and inspired from my Pinterest and Tumblr.

Did you know that Gucci’s trademark double-G embellishment referred to as the “snaffle-bit” is over 60 years old? The majority of Gucci’s first clients were a part of a horse riding aristocrat fraternity.
