Slumber// Centurian Palace: Venice, Italy

by Monica Mei December 01, 2016

Venice is so perfectly picturesque, it feels like you're on a set of an Italian movie against a painted backdrop. It's every bit as gorgeous as my first visit to Venice a decade ago when I was a fashion student (albeit a lot more crowded now with fears of floods affecting access).
