Lost Luggage!

So, we jinxed you with the last question about lost luggage. Has your luggage arrived in Florence and how did you cope when it was MIA?

Well I coped sorta well:) it was 98 when I arrived and after 20 hrs 3 flight changes and a 8 min sprint thru amsterdam airport barefoot (gross and not easy) and another quick terminal change at cdg airport I was a bit sweaty and looking forward to a shower and changing for dinner. Hmmm, no luggage put a damper on my mood for a good 45 min. Then I rallied and headed to elio ferraro an amazing vintage store to find something beautiful. A very easy task. I found a silk lil top w/ cut out lapels, nipped in waist to wear w/ my levis just in case (they were unsure when my luggage would arrive). Great shoes and bags here but it was now 6pm and shops close @ 7 and I had a mission as I had a dinner meeting @ 8. I then headed to luisaviaroma (swoon!) Where I now had the perfect excuse to indulge. However, I had a mission so I compromised and bought for fall: stretch leather tunic w/ shoulder zip (so cool and a near death experience just putting on in that weather!) And a beautiful silk print mini courreges shape mini dress w/pockets. It was silk so not stiff but short and lil enough to wear now and with the shoes I had on (which now have destroyed my feet!! Wait, is that another excuse to indulge?)

Yes, hurt feet are always a reason to indulge. Buy some new shoes! 

Rumor has it you are staying in a pretty sweet hotel. Tell all, please!
I am staying at the hoel maria santa novella on the same square. It's a pretty hotel with all the upgrades but not as swanky as the website shows. Which is actually a better thing for me and quite comfy. I wake up to a clear view of the duomo, marble bath, yummy products and lots of wood. I could do without the red velvet headboard :)

Have you met David yet?
