Travel Diaries: Lisa Marie Fernandez's Weekend in Tuscany
Designer Lisa Marie Fernandez, known for her high-style beachwear, recently jetted off to Tuscany, Italy for a weekend trip. The occasion? To fête the 50th anniversary of Hotel Il Pellicano, an iconic seaside hideaway in L’Argentario. Though only there for a few days, her trip was jam-packed with waterfront festivities, Tuscan sunbathing, and as expected, plenty of chic resort looks.
