italianoitaliano italianoitalianoMy first fashion obsession started with Italiano designers; more specifically, Dolce & Gabbana. Their designs are pure genius and so creative. The silhouettes are also very feminine and timeless. Other designers like Versace and Valentino have also been very influential to me and I spend a generous amount of time admiring their work. Italian designers are so innovative and the details are truly unique and beautiful. This is seriously my dream dress! Although, I would never be able to afford it or this one, I draw from their designs for inspiration.

When I found this dress I immediately fell for the pattern and thought of the intricate embroidery and brocade of my favorite Italian designers. Romeo & Juliet Couture definitely is channeling my favorite type of design and most importantly, my price point. Can you believe this dress was only $19.99?! This is a more casual look, but I can’t wait to show you other ways I’d style this dress.

I’m pretty sure it’s the latter… When traveling I used to always want something tangible to bring back with me to remind me of the trip like a souvenir, but lately my souvenirs have been my photographs. I feel inspired when I look back at the images and capture the moment.

I can look at a photograph and come back to it years later and still feel something powerful like I can physically imagine myself at that place hearing, smelling, seeing, even touching and tasting my surroundings. I try to take in everything around me because I never know if I’ll ever be at that place again, so I want to feel everything and never forget about it. These are some of my favorite photographs of windowsills and doorways (front lawns) from the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

I always wonder what people’s lives are truly like sometimes inside these doors and windows. I’ll always be that curious traveler wondering what life is like for others…
