Our Christmas Presents and The Best Shop In The World

Rossana Orlandi the best shop in the world
I found an article in Elle Decoration last week about The Best Shop In The World in Milan. So out of curiosity I looked at air fares from Newcastle to Milan and they were 1p each way YES 1p. Mind you by the time you added taxes and baggage costs it was £41 each but hey it's still not bad. So we are off to Bergamo near Milan on 8th January. We decided to stay in Bergamo as it is supposedly amazing. This is Harvey's and my Christmas present to each other.
Now down to business - go and see this site of The Best Shop In The World otherwise known as Rossana Orlandi. I can't wait.

What a great present to give each other! Please take your camera and take photos for us voyeurs. (P.S. Yes, you should make your spiral staircase silvery glittery like Selfridges. :) xoxox

Bergamo IS lovely. It's quite a ways from Milan though (if I remember rightly after a business trip to Milan was diverted to Bergamo due to fog).

Don't forget to pack a huge fur coat (fake if you must though Italian women have no qualms about these things)and huge sunglasses and you will look like a true Milanese (oh and you'll need a tiny dog to complete the picture).

I hope you're going to 10 Corso Como as well and the food store Peck has to be visited.

Oh I MISS Italy. Have a wonderful time!
