As I mentioned earlier, I recently travelled to celebrate my Grandmother´s 80th birthday. I had some fun putting together a slideshow with photographs from her life, and I wanted to share this gorgeous photo of her, at 18. Isn´t she beautiful?! My great-grandmother made her that lovely dress she´s wearing. I´m absolutely smitten with this beautiful photograph!
My grandmother is extraordinarily gifted and creative and she loves literature, history, art and music... all interests I´m proud to say I´ve inherited! (She´s also a lot of fun to be around, and is quick to laugh: another trait I love about her!) Another wonderful thing about her is that she has always recognized talents in each of her children and grandchildren and cheered them on tirelessly. And for that, I´m very grateful. I love you Grandma!
At this very moment I´m travelling to Bariloche with my family, to celebrate my Grandmother´s 80th birthday and a very dear friend´s wedding. It´s quite a long trip, but I´m excited to see the family, and once again take in the wonderful scenery. I´ve spent many of my childhood summers with my cousins there, but I never cease to be amazed by the breathtaking landscapes. It´s a place that´s very dear to my heart.
This weekend we celebrated our anniversary, and my wonderful husband took me by surprise to a lovely hotel, and then surprised me even more, with tickets to the theater.
We went to see Agosto, which I highly recommend! A witty play and an extraordinary cast. Very funny at times, dark and dramatic at others, it kept us constantly on the edge of our seats.
Desiderata´s winter collection kind of feels like spring instead of winter. But I like it, it makes me think of a sunny winter day, and it looks light and airy, instead of the usual dark and heavy winter collections.
I think the contrast between the warm pink undertones of the campaign and the cool blues in the lookbook are interesting and it kind of works.
