Imagine stepping back into time when Boroque was in and theater was the form of entertainment. That’s right, Dance, Theater and Music in the 1600′s  in the Ridotto Ballroom was the Studio 54 for the 70′s.

Striking envy? Think Chanel Salzburg New York . Hot off the fashion world today with Cara Delevigne & Pharell. Who wouldn’t love getting dolled up for a night out in a ballgown and gloves for a”Ridotto Publico” in Chanel ?

A part of the palace owned by the Dondola family, the Ridotto Ballroom had the company of nobility and various walks of life who would enjoy a night of pleasure.  Through a bit of historical reference, the great seducer Giacomo Casanova made this place home for his conquests.

Today the ballroom gleams from natural light pouring in through the high and spacious central core where it has been transformed into a multipurpose room hosting international events and conferences.

If you would like to experience a step into time and part of this architectural heritage , Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal  known for the rich historical past and located in the heart of Venice. Serves the best accommodation for a number of reasons. Literally steps away, you have the St Mark’s Square , Morning bells from the St. Mark’s Basilica, Indulge in art at the Palazzo Grassi Contemporary Art Museum and head down on the Vaparetto to Venice Lido for a day in the sun.

I have to say, experiencing my first winter in Venice was bliss! Cold Chilly days , made perfect for my vintage collection that I have been hoarding a while. Wearing a Vintage Trench Button down dress in navy blue suited well against the dramatic and grand style of Boroque architecture.  What do you guys think about staying classic and chic in style?
