Schutz=Amazing German Shoes

Spent the day shopping yesterday and was encountered by many a fabulous shoe! One of which I couldn't help myself but to purchase...

I'm now the very proud owner of these baby's! Can't wait to wear them to an event soon!

Biquini Brasileiro aka Brazilian Bikini

During my visit to Brazil we took a trip over to Guaruja Beach for a few days.  One of the items on my must purchase list was a Brazilian Bikini and man did I find some.  They cut is amazing and really flatting.  I'm definitely hooked.

The first one I fell in love with I shockingly found at the hotel gift shop! Was even able to barter with the sales lady. 

Love these striped bottoms!

Havaianas in Brazil

During my 2 week visit here in Brazil, I've come across many inspiring things.  One of them being the obsession with Havaiana's.  Local's have told me these poplar and now expensive flip flops use to be the shoe of choice for members of the working class like maids for example.  More recently they went through some major re-branding and became attractive to those in the US, being sold at high end retailers such as Nordstrom and other department stores as well as high end boutiques like Kitson on Robertson Blvd.  
I got the chance to visit a couple of the local stores here in Sao Paulo which were both completely packed with people.  Havaiana's have become such a huge deal not just in Brazil, but wold wide.  Definitely picking up a couple pairs for myself as well as a couple gifts.  My favorites are the thin strap ith the new gold foil logo!

Style of the Day - Wind Recovery

After a crazy night with winds up to 91mph and hardly being able to fall asleep, I woke up and decided to go comfy to work today.  Wore a cozy and warm cotton maxi with a patterned scarf and boots.  Good thing I did because I had another long hard day of flat styling Splendid, Ella Moss and Rag & Bone Scarves.
