The energy of Milan is vibrant, fast and beautiful; much like Chiara – who, after doing a bit of stalking perusing through street style online, I found to be a real milanese gem – not one to blend in to the crowds in the best of ways! Immediately I got in touch with her to meet up while Erik and I were in town!

Milan was cold, but Chiara was bright. Her dog a charismatic companion to her sultry Italian style, and just the bit of zest we needed after our fourth espresso hadn’t done the trick. She’s a master of high-low dressing, combining vintage with designer, and Zara with Italian brands I’m looking forward to researching.
