A Little Bit of Venice
If you can’t travel to Venice for a cozy winter holiday, bring Venice home. It may be cold and stormy outside, but inside your local palazzo, as in Venice, it is serenissima. And sequestered. Candles, velvet, muffled sounds. Picture quickly darkening afternoons and evenings full of promise. You glide into them.
The colors of Venice are key: saturated, yet muted. The oranges of a winter sunset, the beiges of stones, the pinky reds of Tintoretto. Lingerie colors, really. You need look no further for your holiday wardrobe from Jane's Vanity.
Set the opulent mood in the Gatsby Velvet Patterned Gown from Christine Vancouver. Jewel colors, burnout silk velvet, plunging back and side slit make it perfect for gazing out at the Grand Canal.
When stepping out for an espresso on a chilly afternoon, just shrug on Morpho+Luna’s Amelie Lined Velvet jacket. The brick red silk velvet and patterned lapels and lining complement your favorite jeans and sustain you as you study Italian verbs.
Invite a friend for pasta, behind closed doors. The perfect hostess, you wear your Chloe Gold Silk Gown from Morpho+Luna. Pretty served with a glass of Vernaccia.
A glorious December morning finds you in your toasty bed, spellbound by Suzette A. Hill’s charming Venetian Venture. What better way to spend the holidays than with a great mystery, set in your favorite locale? Keep to theme with the rococo styling of Lise Charmel’s Splendeur Soie Lingerie set. Its deep navy silk and creamy lace remind you of “The Floating City” of your dreams.
Salute a tutti!
