“On matters of style, swim with the current. On matters of principle, stand like a rock.”
– Thomas Jefferson
I walked by a little store on the pedestrian Via dei Coronari in Rome and *had* to try on this ring. It’s Remus and Romulus suckling the Capitoline she-wolf. How much more Rome can you get? Dig this – it’s made in the shop by the sister and brother team of Michela and Roberto Borrazzi. Crafted from resins, the result is antique pop art using original 1830 plaster casts. *Had* to share this photo Michela spontaneously took. Ring: ‘Grand Tour Collection.’ http://grandtourcollection.it/ Purse made and bought in Italy about 5 years ago, and Woolen Coat by Selbu Knittings of Norway made and bought when I sang on the Hurtigruten S/V Midnatsol, (Midnight Sun) circa 10 years ago. It’s gone through the ringer so many times – all those bits of wool that get pulled out by rings and buckles. Thus, I am proud to proclaim that this Norwegian coat has been lovingly repaired countless times, most recently 4 weeks ago!
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.
