And I love SHOPPING IN ITALY!!

Umayya Theba

I may be a born South African, but I am in complete awe of all things Italian from world-renowned fashion brands, exotic cars, mediterranean flavours, aromatic coffee, decadent gelato and the breath-taking lakes further north, this boot-shaped land sets the trend when it comes to producing the very best designer clothing, footwear and accessories as well as teaching the rest of the world how live la dolce vita. When I started this blog in February 2011, I had some idea of what I wanted to achieve, but I had no clue as to how this journey would unfold. In some strange way, I aimed to fuse both my passion for Italy and fashion together with a love for travel and exploration, and share it with you, hoping that it would be infectious…

I am ecstatic to look back at the progress which I have made. Not only have I fulfilled countless personal requests from you, my friends and readers, to source specific designer products, but with my posts and pictures, I have successfully managed to inspire many of you, my fellow fashionistas and globetrotters, to make Italy your next international holiday destination. I joined forces with the Where Milan team to put the most entertaining Montenapoleone shopping guide straight into the hands of Milan’s tourist crowds and I will also be inviting you to join me on trips to the Fashion Capital during the Fashion Weeks and other design fairs when international buyers and models descend on the city. At the same time, I will introduce you to the prestigious boutique-lined street, Via Montenapoleone and the surrounding area to experience the best of Italian craftsmanship and know-how while exposing and promoting our own creative talent to the European market.

If you appreciate Italian style and flair, and desire beautiful and exclusive clothing of the very best quality, then I will be your personal shopper, your tour leader and your Italian fashion consultant or you can simply read more about my shopping expeditions and my latest fashion discoveries as I travel breath-taking Italian cities and the rest of Europe. You may drop me an email if you are interested in experiencing Italy or if you are searching for a specific product which I can source abroad. You can also visit my Online Store – only open for business when I have beautiful, hand-picked goodies in stock. Please note that the advertised products can only be purchased and delivered to customers residing within South Africa.

Ciao bellezze!
