Oltrarno refers to a Florentine neighborhood on “the other side of the Arno”, the river bisecting Florence. It is now a hot spot of activity, and the “it” place; you can say it is the Left Bank of Florence.
Our Oltrarno bib is a true chameleon because it changes depending on what you decide to wear. Great with a simple black tee, under a crisp white shirt, or a light summer dress. For evening and more formal occasions it completely changes its attitude…becoming a statement piece that finishes that ever-so-chic little black dress, over a turtleneck and black satin or grey flannel pants for American classic style at it best. Available in black or BuDhaGirl pink. Handcrafted in Emploi, Italy exclusively for BuDhaGirl.
Why visit the other side of the Arno? Because it is really happening.
Many of the Florentine craftsmen, such a leather workers, paper makers, jewelers, bakers and more have moved out of the center of Florence and are now making their own “hip” neighborhood.

Mindful Glamour Ritual: Pause. Breathe. Take a moment to think about a chameleon. Think of its subtle color changes used for survival. That subtlety change is an amazing in adaptability, think of those little changes in your life. Then…Go. Be it.
