That sure looks highly uncomfortable, Miss Casati!
The photo above was taken sometime in the ‘50s. Luisa Casati was described as “an eccentric Italian heiress, muse, and patroness of the arts in early 20th-century Europe.” She was born on January 23, 1881 to parents Alberto con Amman and Lucia Bressi, and has captivated artists and literary figures including Jean Cocteau and Robert de Montesquiou! She also has numerous portraits by different artists, most of which she had done “to commission her own immortality.” She was a muse to many artists, having been the subject of many novels and poems.

If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
