    That color on her complexion is DIVINE. love the brazilian flave going on here.

    (seems like you’ve missed the REAL photo-op in the background there, HAHA)

    I’m trying to get my hair to look like that, in a couple months it will!
    The only bad thing about this picture is the people in the background.

    that is definitely the most beautiful maxi dress i’ve ever seen. but i actually think this photo isn’t about the sartorial elegance of the girl. she really is stunning and naturally so.

    sun blossom visions
    of cool depths sweep in
    like thunderheads azure
    blocking all else

    outlines of her form
    bring summer long before
    its time, breathing life
    into my stillness, is her

    utter ability to be un-static
    as lazy clouds that whirl
    about the feet, she comes walking

    While you’d normally notice the dress first, I went straight to that bag. It’s AMAZING! This is the type of outfit where overall from a distance it’s nice, but up close, the details on the dress and bag make it perfection :D

    I love how the dress flows around her as she walks…breezy, casually elegant. Just the kind of style I’m accustomed to seeing and wearing here in the Caribbean.

    i am so glad you finally went to brazil. my favorite pictures are the ones where you DON’T go to paris, milan, or new york. of course they have great fashion there. but the most inspirational pictures are the ones from countries where people have creative style and put together things that i can try to do at home.

    muito legal sart. eu adoro brasil.

    Welcome to Brazil.

    You MUST visit SĂŁo Paulo!

    We will be facinated with the diversity and the complexity of the city and its people.

    Neighborhoods and places you will love:

    Vila Madalena
    Ibirapuera Park
    Ritz (restaurant)
    Forneria San Paolo (restaurant)

    Take care.

    Exquisite beauty – her intorverted look, the assurance and simplicity with which she dressed for the day, the play of tension in her graceful feet and toes – the color and texture of her dress, the smoky nimbus of her hair —oh man, you did ti again.

    I love the contrast of her expression and style against the cheerful, non-stylish people in the background.
