One of the most crowded nations of Europe, Italy, with its larger than life attitude– Cheese & Chocolate, Opera & Wine, Canals & Serene Mountains, Classical Art & Renaissance, Ferrari & Maserati, Da Vinci & Pizza, Rich History & High Fashion, Flattering Flirting and Beautiful Couples, the list goes on… paints a picture worth a sight.

I’ve been to Italy once. With just a week in half a dozen of cities, it was more of a touch and go.  I tried to absorb as much as I could within this week, however everything was so hearty and oozing with love that I left wanting more. { Flashback } –  The rich creamy latte after a big meal of melting mozzarella cheese on a crispy flat bread topped with roma tomatoes and basil leaves; The silky haired man sipping coffee on the table right next to mine; the petite pretty girl in floral dress with mauve scarf and matching heels waiting for someone, the smell of fresh bread from the nearby bakery, the reflecting lights from the Murano Blown Glass shop, the songs of Gondola riders. Margarita Pizza and intricate hand-woven laces, tops my list of favorites from the country. I want to live among its beautiful people with iconic big laughs, I want to laze in the sun with picturesque landscape in my sight. There is just something very different about Italy, something very special which you can experience only when you breathe its air. And I want to live it again, every bit of it. The smells, the taste, the sights and everything that is making me crave for it right now. Meanwhile, Dolce & Gabba with its recent Spring-Summer’14 shoot, is keeping me satiated by bringing together all what Italy stands for: The Luxe & Lace, the Mood, the Breads and the Laughs. The gregariousness that this shoot portrays is Italian in its purest sense. I am loving how the photographer has managed to blend rustic vintage with suave modernity. The Opulence of Gold, White and Black is striking a beautiful balance with the neutral backdrop. And THE MEN! & Oh! THE MEN!

Last time I visited Italy, I was single and had just come out of a very bad breakup. Instead of making me sulk, it embraced me and made me fall in love with everything it had to offer. I want to go back to feel the same love, only this time it will be with the love of my life.
