Vogue’s Fashion night out in Florence, cocktails & Ferragamo

Vogue’s Fashion Night Out in Florence {#VFNO2013} can be summed up using a few words – free cocktails, crazy outfits, plenty of shoes with no socks and the most traffic stores on lonely via tornabuoni received in one day (from … non-rich tourists).  Basically its a chance for your average person (me) to wear a fun blazer, put on too much lipstick and wander into stores where you could never actually buy anything.

February is just upon us and according to Phil, the groundhog in Pennsalyvania we will be enjoying an early spring this year, hurrah!  As usual this year started off in a rainy, rather random temperature kind of way. It was warm and rainy, it was freezing, it was going to snow, it was cold again, then warm again. Who really knows anymore. WIthout further ado, here are my February 2013 top list of events in Florence, Italy. TEMPORARY ART EXHIBIT:…
