I have had a subscription to International Travel News since the turn of the century (a little Irish hyperbole). Seriously, this monthly publication – with its down-to-earth b/w newsprint format – started in Sacramento, California way back in 1976. It covers everywhere in the world EXCEPT the United States. All of the information is very practical. I’ve decided to take excerpts from a column that ran in March 2018 by Mark Gallo. It is titled The Mindful Traveler and it’s very relevant because we’re heading for the summer travel season.

In another article that appeared in the International Travel News of August 20, 2017 he notes that the most common adapters for US travelers to use for smartphones, tablets, digital cameras and many models of laptops are dual-voltage with 2-prong charging cords that work with non-grounded adapters.
To sum up, if you’re going to France or Germany, you need the Continental Europe adapter plug. However, if you’re traveling to a country where two or more different adapters are used (e.g., China, India, parts of Africa and South America) you’ll need to do more planning for wall-socket specs.

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton made waves recently with its announcement of the fashion house, Fenty, led by Rihanna. This was a first in many aspects for LVMH. What stood out the most to me was LVMH was investing in someone whose original profession was not that of a designer. Yes, Rihanna was widely accepted in the fashion world as a trendsetter and had various collaborations under her belt, but she was not a traditional designer.
I recently came across an article in Smithsonian magazine’s March 2019 issue that discussed the relationship of the author, Margaret Chu, with Phyllis Diller, the stand-up comic who died on August 12, 2012 at the ripe old age of 95 and had outlived two of her children.
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.
