How To Travel In Style

There are so many wonderful films about Americans traveling in Italy, but my favorite is Sir David Lean's Summertime, starring a gorgeous middle aged Katherine Hepburn. A story of unrequited love and a hopelessly romantic secretary named Jane Hudson who falls for Renato, a married antiques dealer and Lothario, the film celebrates the city of Venice like no other.

Here's Jane showing us how it's done at any age, with amazing style and grace. I never get tired of her prim wasp waisted 1950's dresses, sensible white sandals for meandering the streets of Venice with her movie camera and perfect costume jewels...

Read more about the film here and do watch this wonderful clip of Renato admiring Jane in the Piazza San Marco. My guess is you will rent this movie or make travel plans to Venice pronto!

Travel in summertime style with distressed sterling silver stacking rings from my Estate Collection, featuring miniature hand painted enamel vintage travel charms. Popular tourist trinkets that date back from the 1940's to the 1970's, I'm sure Jane picked up one in Venice for her fabulous charm bracelet!
