Thoughts of Italy make me feel all warm inside.
Myths as old as time rise up out of the streets, every cobblestone has a story. Turn the corner and history awaits, chiselled in stone, burnt into the air. Venus, Diana & Minerva are with you. Fast backwards, fast forwards… every layer of time has so much to offer, so much to appreciate and so much to be thankful for. The cities, the towns, the coast. The food, the design, the people.
I get lost along the Cinque Terre trails, engulfed by sweeping sea vistas. Heaven rests on the balcony watching the sun go down. Cannoli in one hand, prosecco in the other… my heart is full, and my mind is enriched.
A love letter to Italy, Grazie Mille celebrates all things Italian. Inspired by all the things we have to be thankful for that come from this glorious part of the world.
Grazie mille Italia!

There are three body measurement points that you need to know to ensure a great fit – bust, waist, and hips.
When taking your body measurements, wear the undergarments you normally wear for the most accurate results. Use a flexible tape measure, or a piece of string and ruler, and hold it around each body point so it is comfortably snug. If the tape is cutting into your flesh, it is too tight.
To ensure an accurate measurement around your body, keep the measuring tape as level as possible from front to back. We recommend measuring yourself in front of a mirror so you can check this from a side view. If you can, get a friend to help you to ensure the most accurate measurements.
Bust: Wrap the measuring tape around your back and where the tape meets across the fullest point of your bust is your bust measurement.
Waist: Wrap the measuring tape around your natural waist, the slimmest part of your torso, pulling the ends to the front. Where they meet is your waist measurement.
Hips: Wrap the measuring tape around the widest part of your bottom – this is usually low down towards your thighs. As with your bust and waist measurements, where the tape meets is your hip measurement.
Length: To measure the length of individual garments against your body it is best to measure down the centre of your back. To do this, start the measuring tape at either the base of your neck for dresses and tops, or at your waist for skirts. Measure down your body to the measurement listed in the garment description. This will show you where the garment comes to on you. When you are measuring for length, remember to make sure you are standing completely upright – it is best to have someone help you with this. Alternatively, compare the measurement with the length of a garment you already have.
