Milano in Lace

Urban Outfitters (sale) Dress | American Apparel Bandeau | Tiffany's Earrings | Aldo Sandals

Wore this lace dress I nabbed at the Urban Outfitter's end of summer sale for a jam packed day in Milan a couple weeks ago as well as this Saturday in NYC for brunch at Joseph Leonard and to see The Book of Mormon on Broadway later that night.

Like I mentioned in this post last week (updated to include a restaurant from that day), I tried to pack pieces that didn't take up much room in my suitcase to leave enough space to buy shoes & other shopping on the trip. I modified the look (below) by wearing a mens t-shirt over it and wrapping a jean jacket around my legs in order to grant access into the Duomo to start the day (women can't get in with their shoulders/knees showing but men can be half naked??). After that we headed to lunch at Cafe Trussardi, gelato at Ciccolati Italiani and dinner at Ristorante Solferino, a must try both for the amazing food and neighborhood (Brera). Full with quaint restaurants and outdoor bars; cute boutiques, design and antique stores; and more charm than the area surrounding the Duomo just south of it, the Brera district was probably my favorite and a must if you're looking for a reasonably priced yet excellent meal in Milan.
