Before leaving Milan, I went to Porselli.
I already loved those ballerinas, but,
since I discovered their little shop, I am even more of a fan.
It’s a mini-store very close to the Scala (where the dancers go, of course). Every Wednesday, they get their new stocks (everything is made by hand), and usually on Thursday they are already out of stock. So you have to choose your pair amongst the remaining ones…
It’s a little bit annoying (my friend Barbara who was with me is a 38 and they had absolutely NOTHING left) but it’s pretty deliciously authentic.
And to get a pair, you just need to order it – you’ll receive it on the next Wednesday. Learn to wait!
Well actually, I couldn’t. I left with two out of the three pairs you see in the picture.
Which ones, do you think?
