My Visit to Marimekko Tokyo March 10 2012

Honestly, I would have loved to have gone to Helsinki this year for the 50th anniversary of Marimekko; dreamed about going to those special anniversary events happening at the Marimekko Village......but alas, a couple weeks ago, for my quick fix, I had the chance to go in the Marimekko store in Tokyo's Ometesando. Snapped these few photos... Even just that brief experience got me all jazzed up and ready for spring! Speaking of "jazzed up" I'm heading to New Orleans next week for the first time!

Sleep soundly under these papers in the Clouds Room at the Maison Moschino Hotel in the heart of Milano. A former railway station, it now is an apparently exquisite boutique hotel with surreal and dreamlike decor.
For fashionistas, there is the Ballgown room:
The only problem with the website-no images of their menu, with sushi Italian style! It reads delicious though. Italy has always been on my top ten list of dream vacations. Someday I will make it there. found via the style files
