Aquazzura Queen Mixed Media Sandals: A Piece of Italy

One of my favorite things to do in Florence is shop at uniquely Florentine boutiques like the new Aquazzura store at the Palazzo Corsini. Besides the concept space serving as the brand’s headquarters and flagship, it’s located in a gorgeous, historical building built by the Medicis in the 15th century that was later bought by Maria Machiavelli.

Top 5 Designer Trainers: The Gym Class
