Response to “J.Crew, We’ve Grown Apart” Article in The Wall Street Journal by Elizabeth Holmes

I should firstly say that I am an avid J.Crew shopper and you will find that many of their pieces make up my wardrobe. Thus, when I came across this article, I was inclined to read it because I, too, have somewhat “grown apart” from the brand in recent years.

Another Award – Thank you!

Bari, Italy

Fashion, Food, Travel

While on our trip, I had the pleasure of discovering Bari, Italy. It had a very city-like feel and was home to a university, so it was very much a college town as well. We first traveled to Grotte di Castellana, where we were able to see beautiful caves that were centuries old.

Did someone say designer goods and possibly at a discount?

Yes! That is exactly what I said! I thought I’d share some of my go-to websites when I’m scouring the web for designer goods, especially when I don’t want to pay full price! So here are some of my favorites…

Day One in Rome

Business, Fashion, Travel

Ciao a tutti! Yesterday I arrived in Rome after an eight hour flight. After a quick (well, three hour) nap I headed down the Spanish Steps to take in my shopping opportunities. Right at my finger tips were Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Longchamp, Dolce & Gabanna, and many other designers. Dinner was at the hotel, but dessert was out on the town for some authentic gelato of course!

Arrivederci!

Fashion, Travel

Firstly, I must apologize for my blogging hiatus, SAT subject tests will do that to you! I am writing from the JFK airport about to embark on my adventure to Europe…our first stop being Rome.
