Deborah Oks, 20, mixes her eclectic sensibility with items she borrowed from her fam. Deborah, an architecture student, is wearing her sister’s tunic from Rapsodia, and, get this, her grandma’s tights. (“It’s true,” she exclaimed and showed us the waistband at her ribcage. “See how high!”) We also heart the red accents from the necklace… READ MORE »

Spotted leaving Buenos Aires Fashion Week at La Rural: Carolina Hornos channeling “90210” legend Brenda Walsh in her prime—healthy, slightly rebellious and the very best of early ’90s Americana all in one spunky little package. Vest from Rapsodia, belt from Tabatha, skirt by Complot, and boots by Ricky Sarkany. Like Brenda way back when, Carolina… READ MORE »

Let’s talk about friendship. Friends who go to Buenos Aires Fashion Week together, stay together. Or in this case, pray together. (Left to right) Mariana Choo, 27, Christina Hwang, 25, and Sophie Park, 27, met at church and are all originally from Korea. Guess which cutie is the fashion major (Christina, grey dress from Korea),… READ MORE »

We adore Belen Sozogni’s colorful and free-spirited style. A painter (of course!), she pulls together her pink cardigan, green pants (from an Indian clothing store at Plaza Italia) and patterned purple top (from a store in San Bernado La Costa) in a fresh new way. Hey, we think her idea of comfort — perfect for… READ MORE »

Buenos Aires’ Palermo Soho is teeming with busy cuties like Lola Torres, who was walking briskly to work when we begged her for five minutes of her time. We’re just totally feeling how that bright strawberry dress warms up her skin tone, not to mention that punchy bag (we even like her delicate calf tattoo). READ MORE »

Florencia Broussain, 22, was strolling through the San Telmo antique market when we got a load of her darling shirt-dress. Florencia, a Chilean design major, told us she made it herself.

We stopped Anna Crittenden, 23, exiting a shoe store. Initially, she protested about getting her picture taken, saying, “I don’t look very good.” Nonsense! This chick — originally from London and visiting her bro in Argentina–looks like she rolls out of her bed gorgeous and trend savvy—especially with that vintage Chanel bag (from a flea… READ MORE »

While scoping out the local art scene at Nassau’s own Popop Studios (in the decidedly untouristy Chippingham neighborhood), we spotted Nadia Campbell, 33.

Best buds (left to right) Kachelle Knowles and Khmia Poitier are all about comfort. These College of the Bahamas art majors take all the same classes, and are sometimes on campus until midnight. Which is why they wear pajama bottoms and t-shirts under their coveralls they scored from the Red Cross. They even cop to… READ MORE »

What’s blue, pink, gold and a total cheerfest? We’re thinking Blair Grey is. Strolling out of poli-sci class at the College of the Bahamas, Blair caught our eye immediately with an unexpected color combo on her eyelids (she scored the shadow at Icing) and that adorbs zipper motif tank by Max Rave. This social work… READ MORE »

We found Tyrina Neely, 24, standing out at Bob Marley’s 60th birthday celebration in Nassau, Bahamas. She’s both sleek and flashy in high-waisted jean leggings, a short and natural ‘do, great big accessories and snappy gladiators. Looking stylish is actually her full-time job: She runs her own virtual fashion network, Primadona. … READ MORE »

We did a serious double take when we spotted none other than fashion icon, TV star and queen of all drag queens, RuPaul stepping out on the town in a rather stylish, yet masculine suit with a lovely mint scarf for an added pop of color. And damn, those legs really do go for miles. READ MORE »

Thanks to Marc Jacobs’ fall show, the mother trend of the ’80s — acid washed jeans — is back. When I saw the models come down the runway, I lived in fear of the coming street translation. But Olga here has put my mind at ease. Her chic take on the revived look (Theory blazer,… READ MORE »
