I have been "back blogging". I have finally completed the first two legs of our Italy trip on the actual dates they occurred. Varenna and Liguria are complete. I will be continuing to finish writing about our last days in Piemonte, and all of our time in Bologna. Be patient. I trying to do a day each day. Click on ARCHIVES on the sidebar, then "September 2008". You MUST see my corzetti stamp!
Back to the present. I am feeling better, FINALLY, from this yucky flu bug I have had for NINE days. I finally went to the Doctor, got a shot, and hope I will be at 100% soon. I have a PARTY coming up! (No fear...I'm in good shape!)
Well, this post is about handbags, or PURSES, as we say in California!
Many of you know about my Furla addiction. I have to get at least one on each Italy trip. They are truly a bargain their compared to U.S. prices.
In Genoa, I got a little gold evening bag, just like the black beaded one I bought last year. It was 30% off. I love these little bags for travel, as they pack flat, and weigh little, but they hold everything I need for an evening out. It looks a lot like a lunch bag. (My mind always goes back to food!)
Now, I'm jumping ahead to my main Furla purchase in Bologna (TWO nearby Furla shops to where we were staying.) I needed a winter white bag, and I LOVE the handle.
It is gorgeous with my new sweater (later...). This is weird photo for seeing the shape, but best for seeing the handle.
You've already seen my prize bag from Bellagio, so I guess we need to round out the four regions we visited: Lombardy, Liguria, Emilia Romagna, and Piemonte. How could I not get this little 12 Euro sweet thing in Acqui Terme? Fiona was ready to fight me for it in the street! (Of course, she can borrow it...)
More shopping results coming soon...
