Retail Remedy: Venice Window Shopping, Italian Summer Style

“Or, how I spent my summer vacation, Part Uno:Italian Style- It’s all in the details!The family and I (pooch included) were lollygagging about in Venice for a bit. In true Italian style– as I know it– everything is beautiful but doesn’t necessarily work as expected.The loft apartment we rented was amazing: Brand new renovation in an Old Venice building with a fab rooftop deck and view, super clean and modern Italian style with attention to every detail, except completion.Wow, that sounds like our construction projects sans the view!As the first renters after the total renovation we had the pleasure of experiencing the joys of Italian home repair, which was quite lovely but not what we planned for as part of our vacation! Once the air conditioners (yes, I have been to Italy enough to know that working “climatizzatori d’aria” are key to not schvitzing your petunias off in summer) had their installation completed and the tech genius discovered that the WIFI wasn’t working because no one registered it, we were good to go. Only days later we realized that the washer wasn’t working because although it was positioned and hidden in the most stylish fashion, some connection to water was necessary for operation. We passed on the plumber.However, it is a fantastic time to explore the magic of Venice. The 53rd Venice Biennale of Art Exhibition is open in the Giardini and the Arsenale. Expect to spend a good part of a day in each to view some international cutting edge contemporary art installations besides the random installations throughout Venice falling under the Making Worlds theme. The Punta della Dogana Art Museum just opened and it features the not-to-be-missed personal contemporary art collection of Francois Pinault, his PPR group owns Gucci, Yves St. Laurent, Stella McCartney, Puma, Ballenciaga, Alexander McQueen, and more. Of course, you don’t want to miss The Peggy Guggenheim Collection which is located in Peggy Guggenheim’s former home on the Grand Canal.There is so much unique and exceptional art in Venice that shopping almost plays second fiddle. Summer sales are starting, early fall is dribbling in. Here’s a look at the best of what’s in the store windows in Venice, Italy. Take a look at what I saw for summer fashion…The fall fashion post will follow.”

Amy Winehouse Clothing Line… Yup, it’s a fashion go!

“Let’s think about this one…Amy Winehouse Arrives at the Westminister Magistrates Court in London on March 17, 2009Amy Winehouse first pounced on the music scene with her amazing voice and unique and edgy punky fifties-flashback style. Then, all that sketchy stuff started happening and happening and happening. But I– we– do believe in second chances. Possibly even a third in some special cases.No matter how you look at it, Amy still rocks her image and personal life is meant to be, well, personal.So here we have it with the morning news from WWD, Amy Winehouse joins the ranks of a zillion other celebrities and gets her own fashion line! She is developing a fashion collection with London label PPQ, designed by Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker, the design team who worked with British “It Girl” Peaches Geldof for her fashion foray last year.If we clean up Amy’s image, not to sanitized Hannah Montana ‘role model’ status but more to dye splotches rather than blood stains on super-cute ballet flats, would it sell? I think so! Manufactured punk is a very marketable commodity and in the right hands, a definite fashion yes. The scariest part of it all,”

I’ll Have What She’s Having: Madonna in menswear whites

Tailored, chic and an all white look you will want to try…Madonna with her adorable son, David Banda.I really am not a fan of photos of celebs taken when they are doing private things. But in Madonna’s case her life is like a breadcrumb trail in anticipation of her next great event. Seen leaving Saturday Kabbalah Services in New York this weekend, Madonna was spotted wearing an exceptional menswear look in traditional Kabbalah white.Too much of a fashionably good thing can be difficult to pull off. Both menswear can be tricky to wear without looking like a dragking and all white can be difficult to manage without looking like Nurse Ratchet, but Madonna knows how to get it right– timing and style should really be her middle name.I love her knee-length single-breasted topper, particularly since there was an unseasonable chill in the air this weekend. Shorten the coat to a menswear blazer and you have a perfect summer outfit!The key to wearing head-to-toe white is to mix in different textures and shades of white like cream, ivory, bone, chalk, dust, and alabaster. The subtle nuance of a variety of almost-white while the play of textures like nubby, smooth, and linen keep it all interesting and flattering without the flat glare of an all-white ensemble than can look rather tacky.Madonna’s beige tribly hat, with its brim turned up just a bit, atop some big square i

CinecittA Chic Italian Style: The voluptuous glamour of Frederico Fellini and Nine

“The film NINE will be in theaters this Thanksgiving and I’m obsessed…The original 1963 film 8 1/2 starring Marcello Mastroianni from which the film NINE is based.I cannot take my mind off the lush gorgeousness of the Weinstein Company film trailer for “NINE” since I first saw it yesterday. The yet-to-be-released “Nine” is based on the 1982 Broadway musical “Nine” which is loosely based on the 1963 semi-autobiographical film “8 1/2″ by Italian master Frederico Fellini about a man having a rather visually inspiring midlife crisis about the women in his life from mother to mistress to wife, and then some.The film directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) stars Marion Cotillard, PenA

I’ll Have What She’s Having: Demi Moore in DC

Gorgeous, Timeless, and Chic…Ashton Kutcher, Demi MooreIt’s Monday inspiration time and Demi Moore is our poster girl for looking amazing (as usual) at the White House Correspondents Dinner this weekend in Washington, DC.Besides the fact that @MrsKutcher exudes a hefty dose of sex appeal, Demi is looking flawless for the occasion: No schmaltzy look-at-me Hollywood gown, but rather wearing an elegant one-shoulder grown-up gown in a very sophisticated shade of gray, with simple diamond drop earrings, natural makeup, and classic side-swept hair in balance with the cut of her dress, and a natural tan. Age-appropriate fashion is not about looking great for your age. It’s about looking great (period). Take note. Beauty is feeling comfortable in the skin that you are in.
