Chic On The Street: Granny Style

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 (a present) and slides, which Deborah picked out while traveling in Cusco, Peru.

Chic On The Street: Pretty In Pink

When Buenos Aires starts to feel like an outdoor sauna, smart porteñas like Gretel Morús manage to stay cool and pretty in pink. Busy lady Gretel, 32, is a freelance fashion designer who is also working on a line of hair accessories. This lady travels—her dress is from Portobello Road in London, her bag was 29 euros from Sara in Cyprus (“My best buy!” she exclaims), her shoes are handmade from Mandarine in Buenos Aires and her sunglasses are Ray-Ban. We also love her pink camo infinity headphones, and (you guessed it!) pink iPod Nano. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Buenos Aires Brenda

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 is also a student. She attends the Instituto French in Buenos Aires.

Chic On The Street: Buenos Aires Fashion Week!

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), med student (Mariana, Tommy Hilfiger striped sweater) and potter (Sophie vintage turquoise sweater, dress from Forever 21)? Enough with the games. More importantly, we applaud female bonding in the form of these three insisting on being photographed together! Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Creative Casual

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 strolling through a Buenos Aires street market — is a visual treat for us. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: L-O-L-A Lola

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). The literal icing on the cake is her asymmetrical hairdo, which kind of makes us want to rock a curly, one-sided bob right now. Lola patiently waited as we barely communicated in halting Castellano, and had to book it to work once the pictures were taken. ¡Muchas Gracias Lola! Keep reading »
