The Pope and Italian Fashion

He may never make the best-dressed lists, but Pope Benedict XVI is nothing short of a religious-fashion icon, riding in the Popemobile with red Prada loafers under his cassock and Gucci shades. But his penchant for designer wear and a move to ditch the papal tailors who have dressed popes for more than 200 years are causing new wrinkles in the Vatican.Full Story

The Pope is wearing what my business was for years, selling high-end Italian designer clothing and accessories. Personally I love Prada handbags and of course the Gucci sunglasses!! When I read this story, I could not help but smile!

Italian designer items are better made than what comes out of China. After visiting the factories in Italy, they definitely take pride in their work. However, paying retail prices these days instead of wholesale as before, could be considered ridiculous if not bought on sale. (smiling) Just a thought if you go shopping on Friday. I can assure you there is no sale that good for me to fight the crowds over. Most likely “The Biggest Shopping day of the Year” I will be eating leftovers and watching football. What are your plans for the long weekend?

Prada, not just for devils Actually that name came from a title of a new book!

A reminder of the holiday, I do hope all will remember to be thankful. Happy Thanksgiving to All.
