Milano and the Versace for H&M Collection

Saturday, November 19, 2011 there I was rushing the streets of Milan at 10 am to get to the H&M store and lay my hands on the Versace Collection. The reason of my trip was not specifically dedicated to adding some collection items to my wardrobe, it was just a matter of consequence but there I was taking this mission very seriously thinking that I would not make it in time before the racks were cleared by the fashionistas who were waiting for this very moment. I realized after reading a few blogs that people did actually wake up at dawn to queue for hours before the opening of the stores. Surprisingly at 10 am I could still find the pieces I wanted. Lucky me! So there I was rushing to the store when by chance I bumped into my two friends from Greece who were also there for a long weekend. Call it destiny or a matter of chance we saw each other three times in total in different places of the city on that same day. After spending the day wondering the streets and enjoying the glamour of the most fashionable city in the world and its beautiful boutiques, the afternoon was spent sitting across the Duomo sipping fine red wine. Before this relaxing moment a highlight of the day was visiting the Chanel boutique. For me it is the most elegant, captivating and historical brand of all times. It is the epitome of pure elegance. I am like a kid in a candy store whenever I enter this boutique and luckily I have a generous mother who can spoil me once in a while. In the evening we dined at the Officina 12 restaurant which is known to be a unique place in Milan which offers a rich selection of traditional and regional dishes. The pizza was delicious and the wine list definitely worth mentioning.  Next stop visit to the Como lake and crossing the border to Switzerland. xoxo ES
