Treasures I Found On Vacation In Italy

Today I’m sharing the treasures I found in Italy during my vacation. I love exploring the shops that are a bit off the beaten path and it certainly paid off this time. Thank you for all the kind comments on my travel vlog. I’m so happy we have this community that loves to share travel experiences as well as makeup and fashion tips!

    Dear Dominique,I watched your tutorial on ways to wear scarves. I have a small business in Pennsylvania of women's accessories. I want to send you a very large rayon scarf/wrap to see ways which you can dress it. May I mail it to your news station? Please tell me the colors you wear. I hope you will be knocked out by this scarf.Thank you for your YouTube tutorials.Sincerely,Cori

    I don't know if it's just the haircut but she looks similar to Kelly Hyland from Dance Moms

    Italy is high on my list of dream vacations. Maybe one day in the future I will have the opportunity to go there. I so enjoyed seeing your leather bags & the jacket that you purchased on your vacation. To purchase the true authentic Italian leather items from the place where they make it is certainly a great opportunity. I love that jacket the best. The color & quality of it is gorgeous!!!! Seeing it on you got me excited. I love leather jackets. Would love to have one in several different colors. You can definitely see the quality in the authentic Italian leather. Very sharp looking. Enjoy wearing it!!! Thank you for showing some of the items you purchased on your Italian vacation.

    I'm Italian and I love watching your videos. I can understand what you say because you talk very clearly. Florence is a wonderful city full of magical places where you can find unexpected treasures.

    I have been to Florence several times & bought leather in brick & mortar stores. But I just went to Morocco in April & went to a leatherworks factory in Fez where we actually saw the guys tanning & coloring the raw leather. It smelled putrid but was so interesting to watch. I actually got a custom made jacket similar to yours for a little more than $300. I love mine, too.

    Fidenza Retail Park, outside Parma. you will find a fantastic variety of designer clothes, shoes, bags, accessories.
    Salsomaggiore Therma 20 minutes drive away, world famous Spa. Spectacular building. Our favourite hotel is Hotel Villa Florita, family run. The staff have been there forever it's such a lovely, warm friendly place. In conclusion, difficult to find a place in Italy you won't enjoy.

    Love that bronze bag – similar to the style I carry every day!  Please note that you might want to put that gorgeous jacket on a wooden suit hanger – the wire hanger is going to wear a thin channel into the shoulder and a bump into the top of the sleeve.  "No more wire hangers!"  lol

    First, your bangs blow out has changed my life! I follow your advice on letting sections of hair cool and it saves me tons of time every day plus my hair looks so much better! Thank you.

    Now about leather – – I know you are a very compassionate person. I no longer buy leather products. I like animals too much, including cows, and hate knowing what happens to them for people's pleasure.

    Hopefully we can all grow our compassion and embrace beauty and luxury that does not include any animal suffering.

    I meant to tell you, on another subject, that since watching you, and changing my make up techniques, I've received so many compliments by people that I would've never thought of noticed my make up.  Thank you for the wonderful make up tutorials, as well as all your other videos.  I so enjoy them.

    Your items are awesome you look stunning in the jacket ! I strolled the Ponte Vecchio in Florence and found some beautiful leather items for gifts and small red leather purse for me. My daughter was looking for a certain bracelet that she had found online only made in Italy and during my wandering around I found them in the shop window and what a thrill that was to report back to her and get them. I love browsing any shop or market no matter where I go.thanks for sharing.

    I'm trying to figure out how to organize my old, new, real, and costume jewelry.  Could you do a video on how you organize your jewelry?  My dilemmas:   Do I put my  real jewelry in the same place as costume jewelry or should I lock it up somewhere?  Special cases or do I keep the original boxes?  Serious questions, I know.

    How fabulous! Thanks for sharing your travels and treasures with us. Florence and Tuscany have been on my Bucket List for years. One day I WILL go there. One of my best ever shopping stops was the St. Ouen street market in Paris. It's so much more than a street market. It's one of the largest in Europe, I think. It covers many square blocks and has everything from street junk to high-end goods of all types – art, clothing, jewelry, home decor, cookware, antiques, vintage, brand-new, you name it!!! I found a vendor who sold vintage Chanel and LV bags and luggage. It. Was. Heaven. He was so kind and talked to me for almost an hour about his collections.
