The most unexpected items sometimes become favorites. I thought I would never end up wearing these raspberry shorts I bought with my friend Jennie in De La Ostia (Palermo) but in fact I love them and wear all the time, arguably far to often. I love that fashion has become less brand-driven and more about expressing your personality. In the case of my pink shorts, they instantly improve my mood when I put them on, partly because I laugh when I look in the mirror, or when I look down...If that's not motivation to throw on the things you love most, I dont know what is.

There's no other way to describe it. Everyday all over Buenos Aires professional dog walkers wander around with an enormous herd of dogs ostensibly attached to one main leash. The Scnauzers, Golden Retrievers, Labs, weimaraners and the inexplicably popular tiny poodle all band together and follow the leader. How this is even conceivable, how the typical token Rotweiler manages to not eat the toy poodle (or worse yet, any number of other minidogs dressed in sweaters) in a matter of seconds is beyond me. Even after three years of living here, I never get tired of seeing them!
That last picture of a woman walking 1,000 Beagles (+one straggler) I think is on to something...maybe she rotates by breed or maybe they're actually all her dogs, who knows.

This Sunday I made it out of my apartment by the crack of 3pm to eat lunch in Recoleta. Recoleta is one of my favorite neighborhoods because of its beautiful architecture and overall elegance. Walking around is like stepping back in time as the ladies who lunch still wear their furs and elbow length gloves out to the local cafe at tea time. Hopefully I´ll be able to take some pictures of them and show you what I mean.

Inspired by the nuns of his early childhood and Gaucho folklore, Pablo Ramirez creates clothes only in black and white. While some of his designs are too literal in terms of their interpretation of retro silhouettes, mostly they are just beautiful and classic.

Here I am experiencing a moment of extreme vertigo. I'm standing on a balcony overlooking Pueyrredon avenue in Buenos Aires.
Since Paula Cahen D'Anvers didn't get my letter to her for some reason (I can't imagine why not) I was obliged to buy the aforementioned booties myself. I'm so glad I did though as the black and brown combination makes the so versatile I've been living in them ever since.
