I’ll spend this weekend packing for our first trip to New York since we moved
here to Sao Paulo.  I’m out of myself with excitement and happiness to see
my family and friends after such a long time.  I know it’s been only 10
months but for me that’s an eternity.  I’m even more excited to get to
skip part of winter here in Sao Paulo.  Enjoy yours!

And this is what I meant when I said yesterday that clutches
are very much used during the day now.  Not sure if having one of your
arms always occupied is a comfortable thing to do, but stylish it is!  And
only for a short while that’s all we need, so get along with the program.

As small as an evening clutch could be, a fair amount of a
woman’s taste could be appreciated by taking a look at the kind she is
carrying.  I usually used to think of daily bags more than evening
ones.  That could be because I don’t use to go out at nights much as of
lately; hello kids?  Good thing they are not confined only to evening
anymore, wearing one during the day seems to be the chic norm now.  I’ve
been having a crush on the Givenchy envelope clutch for a little while now but I
kept waiting or hoping for its price to come down.  Until I finally found
one online in London at LN-CC for almost half the price as in the US, not even
mentioning the price Brazil.  Brazil’s price craziness is without
comparison!  Enjoy!

Bruno Frisoni's moroccan home
Bruno Frisoni, the designer behind the shoe brand Roger Vivier shares a
vacation home in Tangier, Morocco with his partner the designer Herver Van Der
Straeten.  As much as I love Roger Vivier’s shoes, Herve Van Der Straeten
is by far one of my favorite furniture designers.  Everything he creates
is beyond extraordinary, chic, unique, inventive and like nothing else. 
The result of their home is simply gorgeous.  Enjoy!

Amazing door to the kitchen and beautiful fretwork on the cupboards. 

 Love the bathroom.

In the colorful guest bedroom the walls are upholstered in a striped carpet.
