Spring 2017, i told you i’d be baaaaaaaack! well, i haven’t tackled every single designer of London, Paris and Milan cause that would be insanity… but instead decided to dedicate a post to my favourite of all: Valentinoooooooo (said in Oprah voice). according to Vogue, designer Pierpaolo Piccioli is an avid researcher and a fan of the Renaissance – so that’s where i started. see my other Valentino posts here.

in case you’re wondering why my recent posts are often rapid-fire, but sometimes a few days apart, it’s because i have a baby but no nanny! so i squeeze in time to post during naps, and some posts (like this one) take me a few days to compile. others are quicker – then i blog like a woman possessed.
