When in Rome, do as the Romans do!

Rome, Italy

There is a famous saying here in Rome, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and right now the Romans are running around town like Ben Hur in his chariot at Circo Massimo searching to find the best bargain. Why is that? Because in Rome sales have started and its time to grab a great piece of art to add to the Fashionista Collection.

Today being the first day of sales or as the Italians call it “Saldi.” I thought I would be daring and hit the mall on my way home from work. I have to let you know that I am mesmerized by the latest styles of dresses and I can not stop searching for them every time I go into a store. Now since I am still very new to dresses, I’m still learning how to pick them out. Most importantly I am still learning on how to choose which ones look nice on me. I have to say that this is a challenge for me but I do love a good challenge.

Through my daily dosage of browsing blogs, fashion sites, and magazines, I have come across the most beautiful dresses. Some of which are beautiful because of their simplicity and other that are glamorous because of their pure detail. I do know that I am in Love with Chiffon. I adore 50’s and 60’s style dresses like the shift dress, the pencil dress and the list goes on. Each one makes you feel chic and glamorous, like you are part of an era that is known to everyone as “La Dolce Vita.”

Here is one of the dresses I purchased at Pull & Bear for €12.99, a very simple dress but I can not wait to match it up with a pair of divine heels:
