Random Italian

I need a shot of Italy.....PRONTO!
I'm going through withdrawal and miss the architecture, amazingly well dressed men and women, towering Cyprus trees, zippy motos, afternoon espresso and gelatos, and of course the marvelous food and wine. 

Although I'm not at liberty to jet off today,
I found a few photos and things that might do the trick temporarily.
Hopefully they will bring a bit of Italy's sunshine your way!

It's funny how things stick in your mind but I fondly remember
visiting this market on a trip to the Amalfi coast...

A sunny terrace in Capri...Nadja Swarovski's to be exact...

Her charming coral and emerald dining room....

Isola Bella...a private Italian Island owned by the Borromeo Family....

The breathtaking grotto at Isola Bella...and yes those are all tiny shells and stones!!

The Salon Grande is Grande indeed and decorated like the most exquisite wedding cake....

The gardens of Isola Bella....

JK Place hotel Capri

Something about this I love...maybe because it's in Italian and looks like Branzino fish???


These sandals will make you feel Italian!
Tuccia di Capri is featured in O Mag this month but their store in Miami has been around for a while...
The girls behind it moved to Italy to study shoe making and founded TDC once back in the states. 

Starting July 25th Henri Bendels will feature them in their store and
you can get a custom pair made while you wait!

And last but not least.....

Private villa Forte dei Marmi

I sat here and had one of the most memorable meals of my life at the
Bistrot Forte Dei Marmi in the coastal town of Forte dei Marmi...

Fond memories I won't soon forget!
