    Nice pic, but I’d sack the photo editor :-) as it looks as if she’s got a cigarette in her mouth, whereas I suspect it’s the strap from a halter neck bikini.

      Hugh – your comment made me crack up. So true.

      Otherwise, it’s a lovely pic, eh? Really pretty and vibrant colours … the pattern on the dress is unique.

        April 13, 2013 at 1:14 pm

        Lovely outfit. I like how the colours in the espadrilles match the flowers in the dress, and how the bag reveals/conceals itself. She has a good eye.

      ?? And what if it were?

        April 15, 2013 at 10:18 pm

        Dear haapi,

        “and what if it were??” For me, it would change everything. I looked at the picture in a completely different way after Hugh pointed out that it wasn’t a cigarette. It isn’t necessarily a judgment against smokers, but, it really kind of is…in all honesty. Smokers are not bad, but smoking definitely is.

      Oh yes, I didn’t notice that earlier but it really does look like a cigarette.

    I was just lying in the bath staring at this gorgeous but tatty old beach towel I’ve had for twenty years, thinking what a wonderful dress it’s colour and print would make. And here it is, on your blog! How fabulous. I love her shoes too. She makes me think of all summers, from childhood to eternity – and that’s a very good thing in Spring-less UK. Thank you, you seem to be having a ball, and it’s great to share it. :)

    I was trying to understand why people were telling that the girl was not tall. Now I just realized that “Girl from Ipanema” in English says the girl is tall, but there’s no mention about that in the Portuguese lyrics. It is funny how the music has created a specific idea of the “carioca” woman.

    • Darrell

      April 15, 2013 at 9:12 am

      The 5-foot-8-inch, dark-haired, green-eyed Heloísa Eneida Menezes Paes Pinto would be considered tall in Brazil–or anywhere–in 1963. And for those wondering, she wouldn’t have been walking everyday on that beach if it weren’t for cigarettes–she bought them at the bar, mostly for her mother.

      Finally, I vote that the young woman in Scott’s photo is putting on her shoes, not taking them off. The beachwalk is over.

    How refreshing to see a dress that is so appropriate for beach wear (or for that matter summertime wear)! Do they make better summer dresses in Brazil? The length, the flow & style– so elegant rather than super short & tasteless!!! Wish we could find elegant beach & post beach wear in Sydney that isn’t only for teens or tent caftans. I’ve seen other similar style dresses in the past on the blog so Brazil seems to win hands down! Thank you, Scott

    Fabiana, as a carioca, I have to say this dress and her style screams Ipanema and Rio de Janeiro in my opinion. As a matter of fact, it totally looks like an old “FARM” dress to me. And if it isn’t, you can find dresses just like that year in, year out, in the most “carioca” of shops, for over a decade now.
