One of my favorite websites for perusing is Avenue Apart. It’s an e-commerce fashion website that allows you to buy products from international boutiques. No need to travel to Italy or Argentina to shop from that designer you adore, but whose products aren’t available in the United States. Plus, when someone compliments you on your amazing jacket (such as the one below by Italian designer Gianoli & Gianoli – I adore the cowl collar!), you can shrug your shoulders and say, “Oh this? It’s from Italy.”
An added plus of shopping through Avenue Apart is that a percentage of all proceeds from the Italian boutiques on the site (including the boutique shown above) will go to benefit CIAI-The Italian Association for Aid to Children. Visit ciai.it for more information.
The Gianoli & Gianoli fleece zippered jacket shown above is also only $239. A great price for a unique designer jacket. I may have just purchased it. Maybe.
