We’ve gone behind the seams to check out the finest haute couture gowns at João Rôlo Couture in Lisbon, Portugal and we’ve gawked at Tatty Devine‘s funky baubles in London, England, but in Romeo and Juliet’s hometown we fell head over heels for the fierce fashion on display at Bottega Giuliana in Verona, Italy.

Bottega Giuliana isn’t the type of boutique you head to in order to snag a bargain. Its elegant refined clothes have price tags that match the high end designs it sells.

At Bottega Giuliana you’ll come across duvet style jackets from Bosideng that look like they strutted straight off of Milan Fashion Week’s catwalk. You’re just as likely to spy sleek suit jackets as you are brightly colored python purses and bags made out of crocodile.

Curious about some of the other unique boutiques we’ve discovered around the globe? Here are a few of our favorite fashion finds we’ve found across the planet.

One of our personal favorites was a silk Escada statement shirt emblazoned with the Italian phrase, “Veni Vidi Vici,” (“I came, I saw, I conquered”) which ought to spice up any boring business meeting in a heartbeat.

We came to Verona expecting to be underwhelmed by kitsch and crowds, but it tugged at our heart strings in every imaginable way. From the city’s massive amphitheater to its romantic winding streets, we were glad we ventured off the beaten path and discovered its pretty piazzas and, of course, Bottega Giuliana.
