One of my favourite street for shopping in Rome is via Borgognona. If you go there, you will bump into Stella Mc Cartney's gorgeous store. She came in Rome for the inauguration in 2011 and most of the pieces, especially the shoes are Made in Italy. The prices are quite high but you can find good deals during the sales in July.She also has one store in Milano. The deco is vey simple and you can see extremely well outfits and accessories. The boutique has 100 squaremeters

Stella Mc Cartney does not use animal leather for shoes or bags. The blond actress, Cate Blanchett,  wore Mc Cartney's sunglasses at the Festival de Cannes. In the last week we had big talks on two english designers. One is the extremely talented and less famous Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy who made the wedding gown for Meghan Markle and the other one is Stella Mc Cartney, the daughter of Paul,  that made dresses for the Royal Wedding to Amal Clooney, the bride Meghan Markle now Duchess of Sussex (for the afternoon's reception) and the TV star Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a custom made white dress with high neck and open shoulders. It was in silk crepe. Some journalists said that She was looking like a Bond Girl. It might be true but also the car and Prince Harry were part of the scene. Too bad Sean Connery was not there. Amal Clooney, the wife of George, had a yellow dress draped on the side in silk cady. Her hat was made by Stephen Jones. I think the colour was too bright. If we want  to continue with the critics, we can also say that Oprah's dress  was too tight on the bust and, in my opinion, the pale pink made her bigger than She is. Her dress was custom made by Stella too. Generally speaking a good success for Ms Mc Cartney. I bet that her roman boutique will be more visited in the next weeks.
