Random Uses For Shower Caps

Travel much? HotelChatter wants to give you some suggestions on how to recycle or get the best use out of hotel shower caps. Some of these suggestions are actually pretty useful! (Even though a few have some scary implications.) There are a few good uses for your travel wardrobe—try packing shoes in a spare cap, stuffing one with dirty underwear, or reorganizing “your clothes drawers by rolling belts or scarves or knit hats up in shower caps.” (On second thought, that sounds like something our grandmothers might do.)

Chic On The Street: Less Is More

Less is so totally more, especially when we see a luxe version of wardrobe basics worn well. So we snapped a pic of pretty Mariana Tolosa, 20, who was on break nearby her sales job at Épica boutique in Palermo Soho. Her off-white top and jeans are from Épica; her sandals are courtesy of Paruolo; the charm-filled necklace is from a feria (street fair) in Parque Serrano and that cool belt is from Wanama. Curious, we took a look inside Épica and can report that it carries awesome downtown chic designs. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Pretty In (Hot) Pink

We like the tough and femme vibe Gisselle Rousseau, a Chilean language teacher, has got going on. Gisselle, 26, pairs a cute hot pink tunic from Jirafita In with punky Zibel Morados. (Fun fact: Zibel is an accessory line started by Ivan Zan Modano, a Chilean soccer player). Gisselle’s quilted purse was a gift, but we wish we could buy her killer blue-black blunt bangs.

Chic On The Street: Fringe Benefits

We saw black fringe swinging prettily as Agustina Lorenzo, 20, walked briskly across Avenida Santa Fe. We had to ask Agustina, an economics major, all about it. Turns out this porteña adds flair to a simple Ayres black shorts and white t-shirt combo—with some DIY fringe benefits. Kudos for showing initiative. And that adorbs red purse by Prune? Nice touch.

Hey! Who Wants To Be A Honeymoon Tester?

The term “dream job” has a different definition for everyone. Mine would include some combination of kittens, meeting famous people, watching a lot of movies, and having people pay to hear what I have to say about those three things. My boyfriend’s dream job is probably to make a living by philosophizing about “Star Trek,” sports, and the supremacy of Dr Pepper over all other sodas. Our differences are obvious. But the website RunawayBrideAndGroom.com may have found an ideal occupation that could appeal to just about anyone. The position in question? A honeymoon tester or, as the site puts it, getting money “to sip champagne, while lying in a hammock slung between two palm trees on a white, sandy beach.” I. Am. Listening. Go on! Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Everything Old Is New

Is it just us, or is Carlota Pederson Madero surging ahead of the curve and channeling “Papa Don’t Preach” at the same time? We had to stop Carlota, 21, outside Buenos Aires’ Alto Palermo movie theater to ask about her sharp threads: The black trench and striped mini dress are from H&M, the scarf is a gift from Paris, and the vintage ’90s Kenzo platform loafers belong to her mother. Get this—she donned this outfit to go sight-seeing with her grandparents. People, it’s crucial to always make the effort. Keep reading »

Frisky Manners: Spring Break Travel Is No Excuse To Forget Your Etiquette

Whether you’re on spring break or are yearning for a long weekend, you no doubt have travel on the brain. And while exploring a new place or returning to a favorite haunt can be really exciting, airplane travel can be downright annoying and frustrating. So to make sure someone doesn’t spend a whole flight plotting your murder because you’ve really pissed them off, we’re going to take a moment to focus on airplane etiquette. Remember how you felt when a fellow passenger made you uncomfortable. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: South American Rockabilly

We noticed how Sabrina Soledad Morelli looked mysterious and romantic, yet sorta rockabilly, leaning up against the cafe wall. Sabrina, 21, wore a pink gingham Complot blouse, patent leather Clona stacked Mary Janes, and a cute bag by Prüne. She didn’t reply when we asked who she was waiting for. Maybe she didn’t understand our Spanish, or she’s just mysterious like we thought. Keep reading »

The Gilt Groupe Model Applied To Travel Deals

Buckle your seat belts: Just when we’re finally building up defenses against the online sample sale phenomenon (and their daily doses of discounted designer duds), a slew of new sales sites are tempting us with some seriously sweet travel deals. Employing the same time-is-of-the-essence drill used by Gilt.com et al, these travel sites offer their members access to deeply reduced hotel rates for a few days at a time. Sure, a few of the “deals” might be more than your yearly salary—$53,000-a-week villa in the Galapagos, anyone?—but there are plenty of affordable offerings for mere mortals looking to plan a spring vacay, romantic getaway or a bachelorette weekend on the cheap. Read on for our guide to the web’s best travel sale sites. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Red Hot

We spotted Aïda Oualalou, 20, browsing through street vendor jewelry on an extremely congested Avenida Santa Fe. This finance student says she finds most of her wardrobe at street fairs, or ferias. Buenos Aires has plenty of them within the city, and all her jewelry is from various ferias except the ivory cuff from Senegal. Not that Aïda needs any extra help in the sizzle department, but she manages to amp up this scorchin’ red number (from a San Telmo feria) with a gold, braided belt (from a Recoleta feria). The bag was a present, and the sandals are from Zara. Also, do we really need to mention how much we love her hair? Overt works for her. We love. Keep reading »
