The Little Black Dress

In the last GET newsletter I talked about the importance of what I call my uniform—the basic idea of what I am going to wear every season so I can eliminate daily guess work. Personally, I like to stick to the classics in both my everyday life and in the evening. Whether I am going to meet friends for dinner, a cocktail party or a bigger event, the most classic of classics, the little black dress, never fails me. I have found a few great ones in all different price ranges and each has amazing versatility. It could be Zara, it could be Balenciaga, but a well-cut, well-proportioned black dress has gotten me through many a fashion crisis.

Love, gp

I loved my meal at the Terrazza Danieli so much that I asked for the recipes. They’re a bit complicated (N2O anyone?) but they’re easy to adjust. I love knowing how they make spaghettini from scratch but you can always buy fresh pasta from your local shop, or use...
