The Glamour of Italian Fashion 

1945 - 2014

The entrance into the treasure grove of Italian fashion.
This is pure eye-candy for any fashionista.
Watch my video below.

Hi guys! 
This is just a two minute video about my visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum to look at "The Glamour of Italian fashion" exhibition. 
I wasn't allowed to film inside the exhibition and show you the amazing collection from 1945 to present day. 
The impact that Italian fashion has had on the Fashion industry all the way to Hollywood has been tremendous. 
Do any of you remember the Versace Safety-pin dress that Elizabeth Hurly wore to the 'four weddings and a funeral' premier? She accompanied then boyfriend, Hugh Grant to the movie of the year in1994. That dress propelled her into SUPER STARDOM! 
This is the kind of impact Italian fashion had.on a global scale :)
For more information on the exhibition please go to

 Richard Burton once said of his then wife, (Elizabeth Taylor) that the only Italian she knew was Bvgalri.
Her diamond collection was sensational to say the least.
Richard bought her there Emerald jewels when they were filming the feature film, Cleopatra. 
There were on display in all of their glory at the exhibition. 
 Dolce & Gabbana 
Ankle boots, black leather stiletto heels with gold, white and pink embroidery, designed by Dolce & Gabbana, Spring/Summer 2001. 

 Models on the catwalk beneath the Sala Bianca's Murano glass chandeliers in the Palazzo Pitti, Florence, 1953

 The new Italian couture from Dolce & Gabbana with a return to the structured look of the 1950′s in 2012-13 at the V&A The Glamour of Italian Fashion
The needed detail on the sleeve of this jacket was absolutely breathtaking.
Other fashion houses such as Emilio Pucci, Prada & Valentino displayed magnificent pieces in the exhibition.

The grounds and the lunch hall at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
It was a wonderful day and really fun.
Plus theres nothing better than learning new things.

Hermes on top of Hermes.

Look out for my next youtube upload THIS WEEK.
This episode, it's all about eyebrows!
My hair was a mess and I decided to get creative.
I love this combo, it's the first time I've ever worn an hermes scarf and shirt together. The funny thing is that they're completely different patterns but b'cos they're in the same colour family, it works! 
Hermes dune bois laque bracelet in lacqured orange sature blanc.

I'm having a great time editing videos for you. 
It's so much fun and my creative juices just overflow, but it can be a drag when you computer acts up or it just crashes! Yikes! It's happened to me already, so now I backup & save everything so I don't loose my work.
Above a clip form the upcoming video.
Smooches to all and have a great week everybody. :)))

Mid- Week Bliss :)
I had a great day today. 
I'm working on my fashion & beauty YouTube channel and it's coming along beautifully. Creatively, it's exactly what I had pictured in my head.  So I'm very happy!
There's nothing better than woking with someone who shares your vision. 
I'm really looking forward to launching it for u all very, very, soon.
So like I said, great day, great work, creative juices flowing, fantastic weather, what's not to love.
As they say "Life's too short" 
So after work, I rented a bike and decided to ride through the park & smell the roses.
Yep, I can ride in heels, she laughs.

Works every time!

My 1st Diane Von Furstenberg dress.❤️❤️❤️
 I was 21 when my mother handed me down one of her old dresses that she'd worn in the Glamorous 70's. Interestingly enough & unbeknownst to me, it happened to be a DVF dress. At the time I didn't know what DVF mean't  all I knew was that looooooooved it right away! Just wrap it around and you're done! I wore it to my Graduation, have worn it to additions, on my 1st flight to New York, to a friend's wedding, on my honeymoon & on & on. The dress just came with me everywhere I went and I know why. It was the only dress that didn't care what size I was and still made me look & feel great. It was never too tight and through the years accommodated those extra 5 or 10 pounds & still screamed Viola! 
Never have to iron it, just roll it up & put in your suitcase. 
No matter what shape or figure, the DVF will always look good on u.
This one in the pic is my 18th DVF dress. (Yep, I collect them) Given to me as a gift from my adorable husband. 
Thank u Mama for showing me incredible and timeless style. 

On this occasion, I was off to church for my childhood friend's daughter's Christening. :)

Shoes from House of Celeb Boutique & can be found here.
Hat from Accessorize 
Earrings from Chanel boutique.
DVF dress can be found here.
There's nothing more dramatic than a Red lip.
This one is from Mac cosmetics and its called Ruby Woo.
