Thank you very much Nini!




As the lucky winner of Nini's 'Finding The Inspiration For The World of Fashion' Competition, Nini most generously offered a $50 gift card of my choice as my prize. Living across the globe from Nini meant that an online store would be the easiest option (plus I shop mostly online), and I chose Standard Deviation NY. This will be my first purchase from this store, even though I have had it saved in my 'favourites' for quite some time. They stock so many labels I love, including: Humanoid, Heimstone, Preen, Future Classics, Vena Cava...and introduced me to Marlova.
Marlova has created a line of luxe cashmere sweaters and dresses that drape the body without being too clingy, yet still shows off one's curves. Nothing beats the feel of cashmere on your skin...I chose this Violet long ribbed tank dress that has a racer back and ruching at back waist for subtle volume. I put the order in on the weekend, and can't wait to receive it, thank you so much, Nini!
Nini's amazing style & enviable wardrobe are incredible, if you haven't visited her blog already, you certainly must!

  20. Oi!! Vc mora na Austrália atualmente?
    Como é a moda por aí?
    Trabalho com jeans, malha e boardshorts aqui no RJ.
    Abs!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Eduardo - Moro na Australia, sim. A moda aqui e mais ou menos mais simples, talvez menos estampado que o Brazil. Ha muito jeans (Sass & Bide, Ksubi) & boardshorts (Billabong, etc.), malha aqui nao usam tanto, acho...Nao sei, pois nao sao roupas que costumo usar. :)

    Minha irma e carioca, e passei o Natal passado no Rio! Minha cidade favorita e Paraty, linderrimo!

  22. Oi!! Certamente, Paraty é muito lindo, idem Angra...
    Mas acho que no conjunto da obra a Austrália consegue superar... aqui no Brasil tá complicado.
    Vi que morou em L.A. Amo a Califa, se pudesse iria morar lá.
    É o lugar que mais curto no mundo.
    Com que vc trabalha por aí? Vai ficar por aí?
    E sua irmã tb a fashion?
    :)))

  23. Adoro Angra e Ilha Grande tambem! Linderrimos!

    Morei em LA faz muitos muitos anos :)

    Trabalho aqui, mas nao em fashion, so que acabei de terminar um curso em estilismo, entao estou pensando em comecar algo em estilismo...Vou ficar aqui, e ja estou aqui faz quase 15 anos! Por isto meu Portugues esta super enferrujado :)

    Minha irma (tenho duas, mas a carioca) mora em Londres agora, e trabalha em IT (computadores, etc.) mas numa 'casa de moda' muito grande.

    Meus pais ainda estao no Brazil, estou morrendo de saudades!
