    I loved this profile! As another tall girl, I like her candid nature in talking about stealing more petite people’s clothes :) More interviews like this, please!

    Love how she plays with proportions in the first picture, and her emphasis on comfort and confidence while wearing outfits.

    Love, love, love your interviews. They are a treat. The subject of this profile, A. Codinha, has a great fashion sensibility and her clothes are quite proportional to her frame. I also want to reconnect with The Atlantic , per her suggestion.

    The Atlantic is not a name heard often in fashion circles.

    I completely agree about tape recorders being non-advantageous.

    My mother loves Sucre.

    I love these “Style Profiles”. I wish they were done for people who are not in the fashion industry, (maybe just a small one? I have so many questions after seeing a photograph; but I suppose it’s all part of the intrigue).

    Interesting to hear her cite Bianca Jagger as style icon, as she def has a little bit of a Bianca look: dark and smouldering, slightly panther-ish, a lean body made for pantsuits.

    Although with those legs I’d be wearing hot pants with everything, all the time!! The great thing about having a body like that is that clothes that would look “daring” on others look perfectly fine, even natural.
