guest post: ale of rosaspina vintage


Here is another beautiful guest post, this one courtesy of the adorable Ale of Rosaspina Vintage. She hales from Turin, a dreamy town in northern Italy, and shares my obsession for romantic dresses made of lace. Ale is an illustrator and a kindred spirit and I hope that someday our paths cross because I'm pretty sure we'd have one hell of a tea party together.


When you asked me to come up with something that was related to Fancy Fine, I thought how much I enjoyed seeing San Francisco through your eyes, the eyes of someone who loves the town and knows lots of secret spots and the prettiest places. So this time I wanted to take you for a walk with me and show you a little bit of my town, Turin. Everyone who travels to Italy goes to Milan, Rome, Florence or Venice, which are all beautiful places but Turin is equally as charming, so I definitely thought it deserved to be shown off! I wore my favorite 40's lace dress just in your honor, as I remember lace is your favorite fabric and it happens to be my favorite too. Isn't it just the best invention ever?

It amazes me how she managed to take all these beautiful shots in Turin without a single person around...

@rose-a-petits-pois - haha, it did require a bit of patience! Turin these days is overwhelmed by tourists but luckily they tend to avoid walking around during the most 'roasting' hours of the day ;)
