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!

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.

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

ascenseur pour l’echafaud (even more gift ideas)

everything about this movie is amazing. the absolutely gorgeous jeanne moreau wandering around nighttime paris, the improvisational score created by miles davis, the clever manipulation of the noir plot structure, and the fact that it was directed by a twenty-four-year-old  louis malle are some of the reasons why this film is a must have. the special edition double disc set by the criterion collection has interviews, documentaries, and malle’s student film crazeologie.
