Oltrarno refers to a Florentine neighborhood on “the other side of the Arno," the river bisecting Florence. It is a hot spot of activity, the “it” place, the Left Bank of Florence.
The Oltrarno Bib Necklace is a true chameleon because it changes depending on what you decide to wear. This versatile, fringe necklace is great with a simple black tee, a crisp white shirt, or a light dress. For evening and more formal occasions, it completely changes its attitude, becoming a statement piece that finishes an ever-so-chic little black dress. Available in black or BuDhaGirl pink. Handcrafted in Empoli, Italy exclusively for BuDhaGirl.
Why visit the other side of the Arno? Because it is really happening.
Many of the Florentine craftsmen, such 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.
