After snoozing the alarm several times and getting dressed we enjoyed a breakfast buffet on the rooftop terrace, overlooking the historical monuments of Rome. Salami a la italia and warm homemade chocolate cake were on the menu. We then took a taxi to Campo de Verona, a magnificent cemetery where thousands of people are buried and families erect shrines and temples to respect their deceased family members.I wore my outrageous feather skirt… and I loved it! I got a surprising amount of compliments while walking in the fashion district. I guess different = good in their book.
What I wore: Skirt: Zara, Shirt: Helmut Lang, Sandals: Reiss, Bag: Vintage LVWe ate lunch at a place in the fashion district, but the restaurant was part sculpture museum. All the sculptures were taken from a famous sculpter’s (his name has slipped my mind) atelier and the venue was painted dark red to reflect the aura of the original atelier. It was purely magical. I ate Cannoca Tadolini – lobster tomato pasta; a messy affair.Enjoying some afternoon Prosecco.Valentino Rockstud sandals in light blue are my dream shoes. I’m saving up for them, but with the hefty price tag of 6000 kr/$1030, it may take a while… Also, I’d much rather spend that money on traveling, food, and living.
The rest of my second day in Rome will be posted tomorrow!
