New and Upcoming: Alexandre Won

In the fast-paced fashion industry of these days such things like Tailors are not heard of anymore, which is sad because tailoring is an art and a talent that you are either born or not with it. I hate to sound sexist but men are usually the best at this particular task ;)That being said I wanted to share a quick video of Alexandre Won, a tailor who's making headlines in my native Brazil and I'm sure you'll soon hear more and more of the talented guy who rides his motorcycle on his suit (hot if you ask me!!)What a breath of fresh air... http://vimeo.com

Chi-Chi town in Hot Company!

Yesterday I went to Chicago, thanks to my dear friend Eutemia, who had to pick up her passport in the Brazilian Consulate. Of course any excuse is good enough to justify the trip, so there we went...lots of talk and philosophies (haha!), singing and venting we finally arrived and we were ready to shop! Quick resume of our day in the windy city - with lots of sunshine ;)

Brasil….meu Brasil brasileiro….

Listening to axe music, looking through pictures and brainstorming for a post I found myself feeling extremely homesick today, but in a good way. I'm so proud of my heritage and couldn't be happier to see that Macy's has brought a piece of Brazil to it's stores here in America!Such happy colors, places, and people fit in perfectly with the new season. Let's celebrate spring with the joyful spirit of the Brazilians ;)I used to not be a fan of Indy car racing (only liked Formula One because our dear Ayrton Senna) but couldn't help myself but falling in love with this very American race after the Brazilian sweethearts Tony and Helio started to make history on the tracks! Gotta love these guys ;) Viva o Brasil!!!!!Beijos,

Mother’s Day Goodies

Yesterday I took my old shoes to the shoe repair at the mall and to my disappointment I found out they can't be repaired :( oh well that's life, I got a looooot of wear out of those!But my trip wasn't a total waste of time since I found my mother's day gift (yes, I do the shopping and just tell hubby that's his gift for me - not romantic but very practical!! haha) Now I just wanted to share my goodies with you, I'm addicted to Pinterest (thanks to my dear friend Isabela!) and have been seeing so many hot accessories for spring that I made a point of getting only costume jewelry. I'm in love!!!Earrings Rachel Rachel Roy 40.00 Equestrian style silver bracelet Vince Camuto 45.00 Toggle chain gold bracelet Ralph Lauren…
