I’m glad you’re in Rio. I am from Rio but currently I’m not living there. But you HAVE TO visit the Instituto Moreira Salles (in Gavea), the neighborhood of Botafogo, the Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM), downtown…so many nice things to do. Enjoy!

Mixed prints..I love the contrast. In the sewing world, so hard to achieve a harmonious balance with prints. When it works, it’s looks very couture. When it doesn’t, well it looks like Vogue Patterns meets Jo-Ann Fabrics.
I think this is a very sexy and mysterious photo. I want to know what or who she is looking at. And the way the lines and curves flow throughout is beautiful. Interestingly enough, I am really drawn to the tattoo on her foot. I like the edge it gives to her graceful arms and feminine outfit.
The tattoo on her foot somehow cheapens the look for me – I imagine her as a low-class Anglo-Saxon from the US rather than a posh South American. There is a huge gulf between those two walks of life. I wish I could see her face.
