I have ventured over to their site a few times...browsing, day dreaming, "window shopping". I love their dresses. They are so vintage, but modern...and sassy. I have my eye on several styles.
They are introducing a new line titled Roamin' Holiday.
Can you guess what the inspiration for new line is?
Let me give you some hints...pasta (my favorite food group), rolling hills, vineyards, gondola rides, romance, Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo...the Sistine Chapel...
They asked me to write about my favorite Italian painting. I LOVE art. I was one of the geeky people in high school that took classes like Humanities and Art Appreciation...and went to Operas and art exhibits. So, this is right up my alley. I also love the Renaissance...which means rebirth...it just sounds so fresh and new. There were some beautiful pieces that came out of that period. Michelangelo, a known sculptor, was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
From that commission, came this gorgeous piece of art. No easy feat. It took him 4 years. I can't imagine how difficult and consuming that must have been. This portion of the ceiling is referred to as the Creation of Adam. It's been used in stationary, cards, books, publications, and television shows. It highly influences pop culture. Aside from all of that, I just think it's beautiful.
