Through the eyes of a fashionable Italian in America, the reader gets the behind-the-scenes of all that entails to achieve enviable style, the Italian way; that quintessential seal of always looking pulled together with insouciant elegance. The reader is catapulted into a life of rousing style filled with carefully-crafted clothing, summer holidays in the Italian countryside, the aroma of fresh tomato sauce simmering in the kitchen, and fresh lavender escaping from grandma's armoire. Through playful and witted prose, anecdotes, tips and interviews, Francesca transports the reader into a world of desirable glamour, and teaches them how to achieve the same understated chicness Italians are recognized for regardless of nationality, age or budget. You'll learn how not to follow trends, how to borrow from the boys' closet and why lingerie is for you and not him. Get ready to empty out all the meaningless clutter, and curate an inspirational wardrobe while reclaiming yourself.
