Amore is the best accessory. Feel It. Wear It. Share It. That’s Amore, Italian Style
Given its changing nature, fashion often manages to look the same. Open any fashion magazine and you’ll see the same labels advertising the same way, with similar concepts, and even similar looking (teenage???)models.
