These are a few of my favorite things

Unfortunately, my NY posts came to an end (what means I'll have to find some Brazillian inspiration to post for a while) and as this is the last post from Big Apple, I decided to show you the things I like as much as "The Sound of Music" (Julie Andrew's amazing movie mentioned here and, if never watched, you must go to your house nearest Blockbuster and watch it this weekend).

Mini ice cream cones at the Limelight Marketplace

floral boots for less than 20 dollars

Snow covered chairs.

Could it be any cutter?

winter trees (something I really wish I had here...)

I like to wear

Probably most of my fun during vacation was walking around and taking photos of random-well dressed people around. For some reason, all people here have something in their outfits nice enough for me to have bothered to ask for a picture. Hope at least one of this different looks has somethig to do with your style and inspires you to create your season looks (or, in case you live in Brazil, your next season looks!)

first pic: my sister in a look with amazingly matched colors thanks to her Ralph Lauren skirt, my yellow rain boots (used during the melted snow days) and a pink (her favorite color) Abercrombie sweater.

Liverpool girl on her way to the airport with an extremely cute handbag and traditional NY sweater (I mean, who doesn't love NY?)

subway: french hat and nice cozy coat

Modern girl at Apple fifth Avenue with the perfect outfit: beautiful coat (cool ethnic?), perfect shoes (the kind of boy shoes I liked so much I bought similar ones at F21) and a blue scarf that unexpectedly completes the outfit.

Subway again: these stylish woman told me specially that day her hair was awful when I asked for a photo. I think she's great!

French guy walking early on Sunday morning. His sunglasses shine as bright as the sun!

Tourist girl on Statue of Liberty. I knew Tokio girls were fashion, but would any other tourist dress as cool as her? (This is absolutely my favorite look in the whole city)

I always found it hard to wear both stylish and simple but I can feel this looks elegance in its head-to-toe-black and charismatic smile

What about you? What's your style about? Tell me which picture suits your style best!

Pretty Little Things

It may sound silly, but I believe there are some little things made for us fall in love with. That's the case of caramel salted macaroons, brand new moleskins, sharpened pencils and vintage founds. There are lots of other things to fall in love with, but I'm particularly in love with details.
The following photos show whatever I liked and gave me the same feelings as my favorite little things give me. I hope it inspires you!

I want to be a Barbie

The girls dream toy, perfect bodied doll, owner of the most amazing clothes (and may I say shoes) could be no one but Barbie. That's why I didn't get bored when heading into the enormous NY toy stores with my sister and spending a good time appreciating Barbies magical world.
This are some things I couldn't resist and had to take some photos...

Barbie and her LBDs...

did you know Barbies earrings were specially designed?

and Barbie has Louboutin shoes!

SPFW - Iodice

The first (and may I say best) fashion show I've gone this season was certainly Iodices.
Although I didn't have the chance to watch all the shows, this one caught my attention due to its sophisticated glamour added by the black hats, leather gloves and graceful looks composed mainly by black and tomato red.

I loved the glamorous black hat

SPFW - looks

I have to admit it was hard to photograph every look I wanted in this SPFW (specially because is one of the only weeks of the year I have the pleasure to see a lot of decent outfits at the same place), but I could catch some of the looks I liked.
Although I was pretty impressed by the number of winter outfits I saw in the middle of our Brazilian summer, I am happy to say some of the people actually know what the word summer means...

People who knows what "summer" means:

Some other looks I liked:

And my favorite one:
I immediately recognized the Yves Saint Lauren shoes I've seen in this blog a couple of months ago and the owner of the shoes (for my delight) is a reader of cupcakes and cashmere as well...

SPFW - winter 2011

Starting today, I'll take a break on uploading my NY photos to post a little about what I've been doing on this Sao Paulo Fashion Week.
I don't have a lot of fashion shows photos but I have a litttle to say about the ones I watched....
I really enjoyed the fashion show of Cori this season. I could mainly see a lot of black, red and vibrant yellow on some details. The modern outfits had a lot of tulle too...
