on how to wear a hat and tell a gossip

lovely interview with the only and oldest female hatter in my home town of belo horizonte. unfortunately, she passed a few months after making the video. darling!

still undecided? no worries, here are some more ideas

when i was a little girl i used to have a chita dress that i wore for the traditional june party celebration in brazil. although i was not a big fan of dresses, i remember liking this one a lot because it was so colorful and fun. what is funny is that growing up, chita was the kind of fabric one overlooked because it was practically everywhere. nowadays i can’t get over how beautiful and fashionable this old cotton fabric really is. so, here are some gift ideas: a book on chita’s history, chita fabric, and other chita thingies!

even more gift ideas

when it comes to jewelry, i like vintage design better. my favorite, though, are those lovely pressed flower pendants; very simple, delicate and elegant. any contributions to my collection?

available at vintage jewelry shops, antique stores, and thrift shops.

celebrating one more spring…or autumm… depending on one’s latitude

it’s that time of the year again. yep, my birthday. so to continue with last year’s tradition, i’ll be posting gift ideas for the lovely friends out there.

still undecided?

a new road trip outfit would be much appreciated. here’s an idea.
