Skulls are used in so many forms of fashion these days, adorned on clothing, jewelry, bags, home decor, etc. I have always liked the bad girl look of skull and cross bones, but I stopped in my tracks and my jaw literally dropped when I saw this amazing store front display in Barcelona, Spain.

It is larger than life, sparkles very bright, and drew me in! I couldn’t even get past this amazing piece to look at clothing because I was so captivated. Bad ass is all I could say as I snapped away with my camera. I started thinking of all the ways I could use this if it were mine. Maybe ridiculous but imagine a chandelier in a dark but fabulous entry way.. Barcelona has become one of my favorite cities, so it was no surprise that their designer shopping district would be so on point and incredible.

I am going to be wearing my gold skull and crossbones midi ring today thinking about future fashion statements that I look forward to making with fierce skulls!

Magical Sights In Milan, Italy

The Duomo Cathedral in Milan, Italy. Larger than life and quite breathtaking!

Blue skies and a Sunday fun-day to do what we please.. Perfect time to sight-see the beautiful & historical architecture of Milano! The details are incredible inside and out. Gazing up at the handmade adornments filled me with amazement. We stepped  inside on a Sunday during the locals service, which was crazy because there were tourists all around with a rope separating the tourists from the church goers.

The tall decorated columns felt like they went on forever, the decorative marble flooring is perfection, and the candle lit prayer areas add a spiritual charm that warms your heart regardless of religious beliefs. Of course, the stained glass is one of my favorite elements.. Amazing!

Our next stop was a 7 story tall shopping area, The Galleria. This historical t-shaped building is filled with fine dining and top designer shops including Prada, Gucci, etc..  The best part in my opinion is the outrageous glass ceilings that offer natural sky lighting. Milan Feb 2014 (22) Milan Feb 2014 (23) Milan Feb 2014 (24)
