Though I really wanted to do an outfit post here in Buenos Aires, there were two main factors conspiring against me: the outrageous, humid heat of a Buenos Aires summer and the fact that I have pinkeye. No one wants to see my pinkeye, no matter how awesome my jacket or leather shorts maybe be. Instead Im going to share some pictures of Buenos Aires from over the past couple of years.
I decided to go for leather on leather (Cowling scarf on Davis jacket) to meet my friend, Andrew (the photographer of these photos), for lunch. I always wear my suede scarf on breezy days because it really stands up to the wind. Unfortunately, it does not do the same for my hair.
Make that leather on leather on leather. I had to run some errands, so I also brought my Portola Weekender Tote (coming for Spring 2011!). Yes, the picture has not been modified, the bag almost reaches my knees.
My big brother, Cory, recently proposed to his amazing girlfriend, Kathryn. And luckily for him (and maybe for her, too!) she already had the ring situation figured out. Kathryn’s grandmother gave her beautiful antique engagement ring to her son, which was then passed on to Kathryn. But, like many of our beloved antique and vintage items, its delicate materials were not as strong as they once were.
So they took it to Bnox jewelers (an amazingly talented jeweler in Pepin, WI – I have some pieces from them as well) who came up with the idea to add another ring behind the first ring for support. It was then Kathryn’s mom who suggested adding a diamond from her mom’s engagement ring to the second band. They did a perfect job creating a second band that compliments the first. The whole set is really stunning, and I love how each piece is specially tailored for Kathryn.
