I lived my days in Milan out of an Airbnb on Corso Garibaldi. I walked the city non stop, counting up to over 36 thousand steps a day and multiple band aids to prove the journey on my beat up feet. Visited a copious amount of shops looking for Italian made shoes and handbags. Had the most amazing burrata cheese from Eataly, devoured freshly made pizza, ate gelato every opportunity I had. 

Every step I took I thought about pinching myself, I could not believe I was there, I cannot be more grateful.

I cannot recall the exact name of the street I took this picture at, but it was close to Via Tortona, that I am sure. 
I was walking to Armani Silos a museum dedicated, of course to Giorgio Armani. After a few hours in there I realised that I am not an Armani fan. 
Just because it's "designer" does not mean you have to like it or even wear it. Criteria.

No les puedo decir el nombre exacto de la calle en donde tomé esta foto, pero fue cerca de la Vía Tortona, de eso estoy segura.
Estaba caminando hacia Armani Silos, un museo dedicado a Giorgio Armani, obviamente. Después de pasar un par de horas allí dentro me di cuenta de que no soy fan de Armani.
Simplemente porque una pieza es de "diseñador" no significa que te tenga que gustar, ni que te la tengas que poner. Criterio.

I'm slowly coming back. Bear with me. 
Sometime ago I mentioned I had accumulated vacation days, over forty days. So when a work trip to France was included in my agenda, I figured I'd leave a week early and give myself a tiny vacation. As you may have noticed in the two previous posts, my first destination was Milan. 
The city has things I love: history, architecture, fashion and vintage. 
I arrived in the midst of Milan Fashion Week so I got a glimpse of the streetwear, however the Milanese do not need Fashion Week to be on top of their dressing game. I do not think I have ever seen so many well dressed people, effortlessly. 
The day these shots were taken I was out on a private vintage shopping experience with an image consultant. Three hours dedicated to going through clothing from different eras, different lives.

Estoy regresando, lentamente. 
Hace algún tiempo mencioné que tenía mas de cuarenta días de vacaciones por tomar. Así que cuando un viaje de trabajo a Francia surgió, me fui una semana antes para una mini vacación. Como han podido notar, en los últimos dos posts, mi primer destino fue Milán. 
Una ciudad que tiene cosas que adoro: historia, arquitectura, moda y vintage.
Llegué en medio de la Semana de la Moda de Milán, así que logré ver un poco del streetwear aunque los milaneses no necesitan que sea la Semana de la Moda para estar bien vestidos. Creo que jamás vi tanta gente junta tan bien vestida y sin mucho esfuerzo.
El día que se tomaron estas fotos estaba haciendo un recorrido privado con una consultora de imagen en tiendas vintage especializadas. Tres horas dedicadas a ver ropa de diferentes eras, diferentes vidas
