Rome-ing Day 1

by Rong Xin Choy


It was a toasty 7 degrees in Rome. What a change! A week before I was battling 42 degrees in Sydney in my summer dresses. My winter uniform is as follows: Black Military-style Peacoat with boots and stockings. Not the most exciting outfit, but it looks presentable. To be honest I quite dislike puffer jackets and parkas- the Peacoat is the only way to go!

This outfit is made special by two things: First, the Tiffany and Co. necklace that J gave me for Christmas. I was so excited when I caught sight of the robin-blue box in his hand. I loved how dainty the silver looked when cast into balls with the cult-classic Return to Tiffany heart tag. Heehee. Second, the hand-stamped leather luggage tag which I got made on Etsy by OfTheFountain. The words are an extract from a poem by E.E. Cummings, which can be found here, and the numbers are the longitude and latitude coordinates of the hospital in Galway that is affiliated with J's medical studies. He has an identical one with the coordinates of the Sydney Law School.
