While visiting the wine country of Italy near Barolo (wine I love) I had to search out what type of shopping they had. I was pleasantly surprised to find a typical piazza with a street filled with small boutiques, patisseries, and outside restaurants. As I passed by and stopped in to many of the adorable shops, I found one a but bigger than usual and decided to walk in. Brian & Barry Milano was the name brightly lite, and the windows dressed in pretty pastels and feminine lace styles. Prices floated above the average Banana Republic or J Crew type stores in the US. It was lovely to explore the styles and fun to find a store known to the locals in the area as "higher end."
