“My schedule has been so crazy. I was in desperate need of a getaway but didn’t have the time for a proper vacation. So I decided to channel a Roman Holiday vibe in New York as a way to relax. My dress is CH Carolina Herrera, my bag Carolina Herrera, and my striped shoes are Manolo Blahnik. It’s my version of fashion sunbathing!”

“I saw this jewelry at the New York vintage store Eleuteri. Doesn’t it look like it’s from Ancient Rome? It’s more like the 20th century.”
