Marc Jacobs: Gobble Gobble at the Met Gala

Marc Jacobs didn't want  to "be boring and wear a tuxedo" he thought he would be classy and channel his inner Louis XVI in full lace regalia instead. Marc apparently likes to wear the occasional skirt and if the mood befits the moment: a dress. The moment in question is none other than the Met Gala and what would befit such a glamorous occasion? A lacy see through shirt dress from Comme des Garcons,some tidy whitey boxers and pilgrim shoes:
"Marc...Cardinal Richelieu has risen from his grave and is asking for his shoes!"

But there remains one last item that must have escaped your attention...it nearly slipped mine: the demure pouch...that and the socks simply make the outfit and the man wearing it...the most laughable ensemble to be seen on the red carpet.
Give the man a medal, once the lights are off and he is back behind the drawing board,we all line up to buy his designs...
Isn't fashion fun.

Where to eat in San Remo...:Vino, Panino & Co

...Get there before lunchtime and amble around the shop lined streets...once lunchtime comes and those shops close...they aren't opening before 3.30pm!! So beware!!

We got there by 11.00am and were able to window shop. I haven't been in ages and the shopping has improved in leaps and bounds: check out the Max & Co for the ladies and Boggi for men. "Spinnaker" has opened a huge fashion emporium for all things designer,you need no longer search in Graziela. There are so many shoe shops that range from the cheap and cheerful to the ugly and expensive...one man's trash is another man's treasure!

Where to eat...that is always a dilemma when you haven't a clue and find yourself desperately walking around looking for something that doesn't look grotty,touristy or PIZZA!
We happened upon this great wine bar/bistro that is light and airy and super trendy....The food is fabulous and everything including dessert is made on the premises.

Vino, Panino & Co: is as lovely as it sounds and doesn't only serve panini and Pinot Grigio. The menu is quite varied and offers a large selection of pastas,salads as well as paninis...there is more but I just couldn't tell you in detail...it was all in Italian!

Now that you got a good feel of the interior...you must we wondering what we ate:pennette in a fresh tomato and fresh basil sauce with aubergines and freshly grated ricotta.
Good? It was bloody delicious!

 Now what did we drink with that? I highly recommend a glass of the Lacrima di Morro d'Alba(a red wine): amber bloomin' nectar...and you can taste peaches and pepper and it is velvety smooth. Need I go on?

We loved it so much...we bought a bottle!
And for dessert? I let myself get tempted....home made creme brulee (an old favourite).

Vino, Panino & Co:corso Mombello 56/58

 Buon Apetito.
