I just LOVE Santa Fe in the fall.

Actually … I just love Santa Fe.

So when a fantastic leather goods brand like GiGi New York, who is quite proud of the fact that they are an American design studio and manufacturer, asked myself and some other style influencers to highlight what makes our own American community special, inspirational and even historical … my response to them was easy:  Have you never been to Santa Fe? 

Santa Fe (which has international appeal) is also known as the City Different because well, it’s different ~ and it’s FAB. But it also has huge historical significance.  Santa Fe is not only the oldest city in the New Mexico, it is also the OLDEST state capital city in the United States.  The oldest church in the continental U.S. is in Santa Fe, as well as one of the oldest homes/buildings in America.

Although I am merely scratching the surface on Santa Fe’s fine history, … I mean, I’m not even talking about all the fab art, yummy food, fantastic people …  I would for sure call it an American Beauty.  Perhaps you should come here sometime?

Meanwhile, do tell.  What makes YOUR community special, inspiring, historical and an American Beauty?
