I saw a mermaid in Rome

Here is an address for the real fashion victims: Via delle Carrozze 81.

What will you find?
Swimwear but… Haute Couture.

Each swimsuit is a work of art, almost tailor-made, combined with long sarong, or shorts, tops, tunics, trousers …
In the boutique there is a feeling of times past, a little Saint Tropez, a little “sixty”!

The Roman aristocracy, and not only, frequent this boutique for the quality and, above all, the uniqueness of its swimsuits!

Considering the prices, (several hundred euros each), they offer a  repair and maintenance  swimsuit’s service!

Who wears a swimsuit of these, made ​​by hand with unique details and fabrics, it will always feel “dressed”!

It is not by chance that many swimsuits for several films, have been created by this brand!

Definitely an investment… but they can also be used as tops for evening wear!

glam… as Rome can be!

Not all the tourists will find the hotel in the historic center of Rome …
Many luxurious and charming hotels are also found in other neighborhoods, such as, for example, the Parioli neighborhood!

In this residential neighborhood, you will find the small Concept Store glam!

Out of the beaten track by tourists, but much loved by residents, glam Outlet offers a choice of the latest Glamour collections of clothing of the Italian Fashion …. and beyond.

My last purchase: a silk scarf of  épice at only 20 euros! (Lucky me….;)

This shop is the classic “lifesaver“, should you need a dress or an important outfit (miu miu, Scervino, Balenciaga, p.a.r.o.s.h., Lanvin…) but also to bring back home a dress which is a wonderful souvenir of your trip in Italy, in Rome…
The two owners, Laura and Elisabetta, select clothes every week from the latest Collections of fashion!

So, before reaching  the Villa Borghese Park, you have to make a glam stop,,,,,,,

Tuscany fashion bags

The Italian craftsmen are among the best in the world. They combine creativity with high quality as in the Compagnia Toscana shop of handmade bags, in Rome.

I stopped in front of the store to see close up the prices and I was amazed at value for money!

Great blue bag in little calf  at 120 euros, or a faux leather handbag at 49 euros.

There is a great choice  also with application in fur, but I’m in love with the bags made ​​of Felt, in various colors, for only 39 euros! Believe me, ask to Maria Teresa Enrica, the  sales responsible, she will show you with extreme kindness, all the latest creations!

It’s worth a stop!

DESIGN and BAGS

You get into the SISSIROSSI boutique for the stylish handbags, with a particular luxurious allure, and you remain pleasantly surprised by how much these bags are “easy” to wear!

I entered in the shop greeted by the smile of  Wiola, the Sales Manager, and she has described me the care behind these bags!

Born into a family of leather goods makers, Sissi Rossi, design with a  contemporary and understated style.

Practical and strong, functional and elegant.

As the bags in soft cowhide leather, from 445 euros, or the bags in fox fur, at 750 euros. 

All this explains why the key element attached to the bags is an innocent Safety pin, but the brand symbol is a  strong Female mantis!
