I just finished unpacking the first shoes from our first ever Jimmy Choo delivery, and these are my favorites so far. They’re up on the shelves in the boutique but it will take a little longer for them to arrive in the web shop. I’ll keep you posted.

Ok I surrender. This is the second jacket from Acne I have fallen in love with lately, and it’s blue just like the first one. Are you sensing a trend, perhaps? Well you just can’t blame me for loving this jacket. It’s perfect.
A Portrait of Rimini’s Federico Fellini and Giuseppe Zanotti
Along the Adriatic Sea, you will find Rimini, Italy. Rimini is one of the largest tourist destinations in Europe due to its excess of beaches, hotels, and restaurants. Rimini has 15km of sandy beach and over 1,000 hotels, restaurants, and lounges. Additionally, besides being a highly regarded vacation spot and seaside city, Rimini’s landscape, people, and culture have helped inspire creativity in some of the greatest minds out there. Anyone who has seen a Fellini movie can experience the magic of Rimini, and anyone who has worn a shoe from Giuseppe Zanotti can peak into its soul.
Fellini was born in 1920 and spent his early years in Rimini. In that time, he devoted himself early on to his studies and engaged in artistic endeavors like puppetry and drawing. It was during these years that he discovered the circus and film, two subjects that would impact the rest of his life. Many of Fellini’s films have autobiographical elements, and Rimini serves as the background for many of these events. Several instances and characters during these early years were adapted in moves like La Dolce Vita and Amarcord.
Moreover, Rimini has always had a rich history in the shoemaking industry. This may have helped spawn Giuseppe Zanotti’s inspiration. Giuseppe Zanotti was born in San Mauro Pascoli, a small town a few miles outside of Rimini. Before shoemaking, Zanotti worked as a DJ. However, the town’s tradition and Zanotti’s own innate creative spirit took him on a course into shoemaking. He started off as a freelancer, but quickly rose to prominence as his style took off. The spirit and soul of Rimini can be found in Zanotti’s shoes. Today, Zanotti’s shoes can be found all over the world worn by the best and brightest fashionistas out there.
This metallic black clutch from Stella McCartney just arrived in store. Gift idea, maybe? It will be available at ShopSavannahs.com soon. I already have a couple of Falabella bags from Stella McCartney, but I don’t have a clutch (yet). The thing is that my mother has her eye on this one, and we can’t end up picking the same things all the time. Or can we?
