Shopping the Bag Show in Milano

My schedule is very busy in Italy this year. First of all, Poppi will be shopping the fall shows in Milano, specifically the bag and shoe show.  We then travel by train to Florence to visit Bruno and Simone Di Pomo, father/son duo in the leather business. From there, on to Deruta to tour the Majolica Factory (a new line Poppi will be showcasing this fall). After a short side trip to Bologna we return to Milano for the Apparel show.

I have set aside one day to do a little sightseeing in Bologna with a 2.5 mile walking tour of the city. Bologna is the lively, historic capital of the Emilia-Romagna region, in northern Italy. The Piazza Maggiore is a sprawling plaza lined with arched colonnades, cafes and Renaissance structures. Most of all, I look forward to finding a new “ristorante”, to savor the Italian food, sip lovely red wines and sample “real” gelato every night. Bellissima! http://www.initaly.com/regions/erm/bolognaalbm.htm

Kick off September with the new cardi!

Let’s kick off this September with a new cardigan from the Italian fashion line of Monica Yong. The cardi has become a key outerwear piece this fall, warm and stylish, its perfect for cooler fall days. Dress it up or wear it in a slightly disheveled way. Forget the jacket or denim, the cardigan is the preferred layering piece of choice. The easiest way to wear the cardigan is over straight-leg jeans and a t-shirt. Or tuck it into high-waist trousers for a slimmer silhouette. https://poppiitalianleather.com/clothes/cardigan-sweater-round-neck-with-pockets.html
