Fabulous Fridays: Trendy Taormina

This is my last post about Sicily – for a while. So here’s one more look at Taromina. Because Taormina is not just about the history,

the tourists

and the scenery.

It’s also about the shops and boutiques selling the type of stuff that many girls’ dreams are made of.

  1. What lovely colours!
    The pictures are beautiful but my favorite is the one of the gown with roses.

  2. Oh, you got some good pics of "girlie girl dreamy stuff" didn't you! The shoes the women are wearing just amaze me. They really and truly amaze me....don't get me started...but I think women have taken a huge step backwards in progression...because of the shoes. You should see it in the US...women can't even straighten their knees, the heels are so comically high. Oh dear...signs that I must be getting to the point "I can't understand the younger generation". Have fun wherever you are going...that is COOLER!!

  4. I was surprised by that last pair of shoes! Surprised that they appeal to me as I am not a high heels girl. I think it is the gradient of color on the heel.

    The shot of those delicate pink blossoms made me smile, Loree.
