About Francesca Belluomini
Francesca Belluomini is a quick-witted fashion veteran and an unapologetic style savant. She has lived in Miami long enough to know not to blink when peacocks cross the street. She is originally from Viareggio, Tuscany, the same region where Marquis Emilio Pucci and Guccio Gucci were born.
With a degree in Fashion Sociology and a master’s in Mass Media and Communication from the University of Florence, foundations which formed her unpretentious taste, Francesca has dedicated her entire career to fashion and style, and life choices have led her to live in fashion capitals like Milan, Paris and London where she sealed her unmistakable knack for mixing sartorial garments, local market finds, and vintage.
People always complimented her chic style and wanted to dress like her. They admired her ability to put things together with a nonchalant elegance. Her book "The Cheat Sheet of Italian Style" offers tools for every woman to achieve this flair by adapting their wardrobes to the Italian style.
SocialMiami.com, CBS Local Miami, TrustedClothes.com and Italian e-zine www.DDmag.it are some of the latest publications that have enjoyed her sharp and witty fashion writings. You can find her on www.FrancescaBelluomini.com
where she voices her thoughts in a more intimate and personal manner.
Style Encounter: Amber Rapicavoli
"Amber and I met in a boutique in Wynwood. She has a style that makes her look comfortable as well as empowered; she is warm, and when she smiles, her face opens happily. She loves food - actually “good food,” and not to give it all away, I'll tell you this: Amber is married to Chef Giorgio Rapicavoli so good taste, good food and good style are prevalent in her family."
Style Encounter: Joana Davila
"Joanna embodies that understated solar Miami style - nonchalant, unconventional, a mix of sexy and gamine, unique yet reassuring. In other words, if she walks into a coffee bar, she is your girl! You want her to come and sit next to you and talk about a movie, a trip, or a pair of shoes, and be best friends at first sight."

Style Encounter: Maryjane Claverol
Maryjane is the humble and understated person that you find at the coffee shop minding her own business, yet she stands out for her bright eyes, and you want to be her friend. She emanates rays of trustworthiness and, after you interact a bit, you know you want to spend more time with her because of her pearls of wisdom mixed with a good laugh or two to draw you in. That’s more or less how we met, and when you see her in her element, alternatively in her studio or with her daughter at the park, she is exactly how she is depicted in these pictures. No “social media persona” - you get the true Maryjane, a rare find.
