It’s not everyday I find a 0039 Italy item in the thrift store but on those days that I do I celebrate. 0039 Italy is luxury Italian fashion in action. 0039 Italy, the fashion label designs both elegant and fancy blouses, dresses, pants and fashion accessories as well as extravagant and timeless shirts for the modern, fashion-conscious woman. Love this striped 0039 Italy blouse and love it even more when I combine it with this black striped Cynthia Steffe jacket. I always enjoy finding Cynthia Steffe but when looking at their fall 2011 collection I see FUR which made my skin crawl. So I called NYC and talked to someone at Cynthia Steffe and asked if they used faux fur or real FUR in their fall collection. The man told me they use both faux and real FUR and I was really hoping to hear this “we only use faux fur at Cynthia Steffe” but I didn’t. I have no idea why fashion designers use real FUR in 2011, no idea. With technology making such strong progress with new fabrics I can only think of 1 thing why designers use FUR…. laziness. Come on designers don’t follow those hobbit Olsen twins formula because we all know they love their FUR, get original. Stop by Doubletake my social media driven boutique in Atlanta and friend me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter….toodles for now. Be STYLISH go green. Daniel your luxury curator!
