You are Making Me Gucci

Did you enter my $75 Shabby Apple giveaway? It closes on July 26.
Ah Europe, how I love thee!
With all your wonderful chocolates, history and delicious foods, I need to visit you again soon!

 When Allison said European wear for this week's Friday's Fancies, I thought yes! But then my heart sank, how the heck do you dress European? I mean French is a category all its own, and those French women definitely know how to dress. During my European travels, I definitely have gotten a taste of the European fashions and they are definitely very different from here.
The few places I have visited thus far in Europe have been Vienna, Austria (for a semester abroad), Budapest, Czech Republic, The Netherlands (Amsterdam and Leiden) and then to Italy twice, up and down the entire peninsula.
For my Friday's Fancies, my European inspired outfit is all Italian, in fact it is all Gucci, which is how I would dress if I was sipping my espresso eating my plate of spaghetti dining alfresco while in Venice. Venice was a gorgeous city to visit, in fact I have been there twice and would love to take Sean there one day.
When I was studying in Vienna, my roommate was a sweet Italian girl named Lucia and we have managed to keep in touch and visit each other occasionally since we were roommates in 2005. 
Here are a few photos of Venice when I went to visit her back in 2006.


Sorry for the photos, I am just setting the stage for my all-Gucci European look 
for this week's Friday's Fancies.

Ok maybe not very Italian looking, but then again what is the Italian way to dress? I defaulted to an Italian designer to cover my bases :-)
Have a great weekend all, I know I will because I am hanging out with these gorgeous ladies Katie, Jamie and Kasey.
