Alduca D'Aosta's F/W 2012 Arrivals

Alice F. of Alduca D'Aosta just sent me some gorgeous photos of F/W 2012 arrivals that they received.  My favorite color has to be Lagon which is much more brighter than the color swatch we've seen before!  It has been described as a color that is similar to the vibrant 2005 Turquoise but with more green tones to it. 

I've also wanted to mention that I had a great shopping experience with Alduca D'Aosta.  They shipped my item out promptly and arrived to me in a few days all the way from Italy.  The item was also in perfect condition! -Thank you Alice for the pictures!
