City Break in Milan - Fashion and Fashionable Parks

For our last day in Milan, we decided to stay closer to the city center.  I stopped to admire the top fashions on offer.
I spotted this little white puppy looking longingly out of a shop window.
We wandered through Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli.  I can never resist an open gate...
Inside, we discovered a beautiful pond...
...and gnarled rock formations.
Once again, we saw the Fall foliage in full swing.
Stately sculptures added to the charm.
The Milanese love their dogs.  We could see some canines frolicking a distance away from this doggie water fountain.
A well coiffed mansion also sat on the grounds.
We emerged into the heart of Milan's fashion district.
We continued through the bustle of the city toward Parco Sempione.
We sat in front of a dancing fountain and enjoyed a slice of gourmet pizza.
We continued through the fortress into the park.
A pair of mermaids guarded a small footbridge.
Exiting the park, we found ourselves in the vicinity of Alfonso Garlando.  I'd done a bit of research online and knew they sold shoes for big-footed ladies like myself.
They don't sell Sidewalk Safari inspired walking shoes but they do sell lovely pumps and other dress shoes at bargain prices.  I couldn't resist and bought two pair for less than 70 euro.
We continued our walk past this sculpture of man with a head in his heart.
The ultra fashion district was next.  We saw shops selling clothes for hundreds of euros.  Needless to say, we stuck with window shopping.
I liked these tiny child mannequins dressed in adult preppy attire.
On the ground, we saw a few bits embedded in the sidewalk.
I liked these colorful felt men leading the way into a shop.
We passed the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale (Milan Natural History Museum).
We rested our legs on a bench outside.  We admired the elephant sculptures on the grounds.
Winding down, we made our way up the Corso Buenos Aires.  We passed a forested roof.
We also passed ornate accents on the buildings.
As we returned to our hotel to pick up our bags, we heard some loud squawking overhead.
We looked up and saw a huge flock of birds swirling around a crane.
The birds finally started to settle down as the sunset and we made our way back to the airport for our return to Dublin.
