How do you Fiat?

I’ve recently acquired a new toy and I’m so excited about it!  If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, you may have already seen this oh-so-cute picture of my daughter in our new ride on the day of purchase...

Yep, you guessed it.  I bought a shiny new Fiat 500C (Cinquecento if you're Italian *wistful sigh*) and I love it!  You probably already know that I push the envelope when it comes to interior design and fashion.  So, why would it be any different with my car?  Of course, I wanted something good for the environment....but it didn't hurt that it was also a convertible and I had the ability to customize the interior. :)

Here are the before pictures....

As you can see, the exterior color, Azzurro, is stunning - especially on this cute little convertible.   The accents are Ivory, which is a perfect complement to the blue.  However, the darker brown Marrone leather just didn't feel right with everything else that was established.

Approximately 60 minutes later, I was standing around the car with two men from the Parts Department, the Fiat Rep, and a myriad of leather swatches and embroidery threads....I was in my element.  The result was an all Ivory interior with blue metallic embroidery to match the exterior and plush, sporty seats...


Matching key's the little things :)

Doesn't she look fun?!   See you on the road!
