Style-Diet Shot – Rosalba

“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Rosalba is an Italian grandmother, tailor and seamstress living in a small town in the Hills of Florence.  She sewed her outfit….Herself!  Ma certo!  I had to sew a skirt in grade 9 as part of a required home economics class.  It was a compulsory subject.  It was so difficult for me that I gained huge vats of respect for tailors or seamstresses…..


The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
