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 »

Chic On The Street: A Handmade Shirt-Dress

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. This young lady must love street purchases—she thinks the scarf around her waist is from another antique market, and is certain she bought her shoes and bag from the Plaza Once street fair in Buenos Aires.

Chic On The Street: Not Your Ordinary Buenos Aires Tourist

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 market in Rome), a super worn “I Heart NY” T-shirt from a Manhattan street vendor, shorts from Ebay and Topshop gladiators.

Man Asks For Water For His Pregnant Wife, Gets Kicked Off A Plane

Lately, the supposedly friendly skies have gotten pretty hostile for passengers. Last month, Joan Rivers was detained due to her suspicious-looking passport, and over the weekend, director Kevin Smith got booted from a plane, supposedly for being too fat. Now, The New York Post reports that a New York City doctor was asked to get off a plane yesterday, apparently because he repeatedly asked flight attendants for water to give his 7-month pregnant wife during a two-hour delay on the runway. The flight attendants claimed that giving water to passengers before the plane is in the air goes “against corporate policy.” Rules like this were probably meant to keep passengers safe—but making a thirsty pregnant woman suffer seems like cruel and unusual punishment.

Chic On The Street: Nadia’s Statement Pieces

While scoping out the local art scene at Nassau’s own Popop Studios (in the decidedly untouristy Chippingham neighborhood), we spotted Nadia Campbell, 33. More specifically, we were fixated on her tricked-out coral and wood choker. Turns out she made it herself, and works on her own jewelry line in the same building as the gallery. (She was on her way upstairs to crank out more self-professed “island chic” pieces that she sells at Marcie Bond.) Lesson learned: we’ve noticed that hip Bahamian ladies love to match bold statement pieces with basic wardrobe staples like a black top and jeans. Also coveting that apple green leather purse from Hype. Keep reading »

Chic On The Street: Nassau Tomboys

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 wearing the same thing three days in a row sometimes. Hey, we’re suckers for don’t-give-a-damn, low-key tomboys. Keep reading »

Beauty-Obsessed Travelers, Listen Up!

Frequent fliers (and fashion folk gearing up for Paris, London and Milan shows), this post is for you. A new website, 3floz.com, recently launched, and basically, it’s a site selling only products that are three fluid ounces or less! As their tagline says, “For those who travel, those who are curious and those who can’t commit.” And I’m not talking the usual drugstore stuff—founded by beauty junkies Kate Duff and Alexi Mintz, they sell Dr. Hauschka, Go Smile, Malin + Goetz, Ahava, DDF, Philip B, etc. etc.—beauty brands you actually love to use. Take that TSA! Good idea, right? [3floz.com] Keep reading »
