Yesterday Shaun, one of our bloggers, touched on the multiple ways we can "splurge" on luxury items. Not all splurges have to be physical goods however. Actress, Penelope Cruz, chooses calories instead of luxury goods. Others love the costly vacation.
For me, the chance to experience a new culture, eat exotic food, and peek into others lives is priceless. My recent trip to Cuba wasn't exactly a luxury trip. It entailed quite a bit of "roughing it". But for most of us, myself included, any overseas travel is a luxury and a big time commitment.
On that note, I wanted to share a few more pictures and a short video from my recent trip to Cuba that I've blogged about in this post and this one. Traveling to Cuba is truly a visual delight. There is so much to look at and take in from the architecture and interesting people to the constant live music and street traffic.

I also had the opportunity to take a few hours of salsa lessons and learned the Cuban-style salsa rueda (or "wheel"), where multiple partners move in a circle and switch mid-dance.

When Instagram announced they would be running a test where they would "hide the total number of likes and video views for some people" in some countries, the feedback was mixed. I spoke with some of my friends, from around the globe, who lauded the decision. Their reasoning was varied but with many pointing to how many teens and even young children are feeling the pressure to post and will only feel validated when they get so many likes.
Last week we introduced you to the newly opened Hudson Yards and provided lots of basic, down-to-earth information. CLICK HERE for a fantastic video of the grand opening ceremony (sound on/full screen). This week we’re going to focus on the shops and restaurants you will find as well as “The Vessel” (New York’s answer to the Eiffel Tower) and “The Shed” (a performance and exhibition space that expands and contracts).
No matter where you are in the world today, it seems one cannot escape politics. As I do not want this post to be an oxymoron, my goal is to keep it on topic - politics in fashion?. It was not that long ago, I cancelled one of my previously beloved fashion magazines (and as you read this, it wasn't American Vogue). Without thinking twice, I cited the reason being that I was a subscriber to this magazine because it used to be about fashion, now it was about fashion and politics.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
