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.”

Oslo Style: How to dress in snowy and slushy weather

Style tips to look cute in bad winter weather:This week has been far from glamorous when it comes to dressing! With temperatures dropping to minus-degrees, we have had both snow and rain most of the week in Oslo. And even though I am dreaming of Californian weather, every day before I wake up and quickly realize I need to dig deep into my closet for warm and comfy clothes it becomes quite ok that the season is changing. In just a few weeks, I will start my Christmas-shopping. I will listen to Christmas carols while I search for the perfect dress for the Christmas parties in December.However, despite of the colder weather I still manage to find some outfits to wear this week.

Oslo Style: How to get new outfits for free

Home Town Style: Oslo, Norway…Retail remedy tips to shop your closet.I know, going shopping with an empty wallet is not easy. Trust me, I am the kind of person who always finds great things to buy- – no matter what, no matter where, and especially when I cannot afford to buy a thing.However, from time to time many of us do have to rethink before buying that pair of boots that are just a bit too expensive for our empty wallets– even though we try to convince ourselves that the quality justifies its price since they will last forever… yeah right. Sometimes budget overtakes the lust for something new.Since many of us already have a fully packed closet with great things to wear, sometimes all we really need is some inspiration on how to put the pieces that we already own together in new combinations.
