Shopping plan: Venice

This weekend, my husband and me planned a romantic getaway to Venice, in order to celebrate one year of matrimony :).
It is not my first time in Venice, so this time i have a good picture of what you can shop in here.
I am especially interested to see some Murano glass chandelier (models & prices). We are re-decorating our apartement, and a dark-red, classic looking, Murano glass chandelier is perfect for my living room. I found some in Romania (Armani Casa), but quite expensive, and i couldn't decide to buy, considering this trip to Venice, home of Murano glass.

Another thing i want to buy is a necklace of "Venetian pearls", colored glass beads extremely popular there. A murrina is also something i'd love to have; this is a slim round pendant in colored glass with spiral or flower patterns that is hung on a gold or silver chain around your neck.

Venice is packed with fashion stores, such as Max Mara, Sergio Rossi, Cartier, Krizia, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and many others too. I remember that last time in Venice i bought a really nice swim suit from La Perla that i still wear today. Also a jeans jacket from Max Mara... Hmm! I really have to visit some of those shops :). Especially the Louis Vuitton one, i think i have the urge to buy me a new bag!!
