My Beautiful Embroidered Back

6 years ago by

I’m in Milan and it’s super nice outside. The shows started yesterday, showing some promise with the rather luxurious Gucci — I’ll tell you more about it soon. In the street, all you get is crowds and outside the shows, whether they are there to simply watch the craziness that ensues or to actually work, all the ladies start to get out their finest outfits.

I had my first coffee outside at a café this afternoon. The sun didn’t set until after 6:00 which gave me a brief scent of the spring to come. I found Anna, Viviana, Giorgia, oh my god, I love Italy so much… Well, except for the taxi driver that I was just yelling insults at in Italian earlier today (but he started it!) and actually seeing as it’s quite delicious to yell insults in Italian, even that put me in a pretty good mood.

Anyway… I want an embroidered back. Lots of colors. Yep, just like this one in the photo.

I think it’s awesome, especially a beautiful vintage piece like this one. Any idea where I can find a jacket like this?

Ooookay, off I go! Big hugs!
