brazil in instagram

a few instagram (@lindleyarnoldy) shots from our weekend in brazil. currently living in these lavendar j brands which also happen to make a very comfortable and stylish jean for traveling. if you are ever in rio, go to the granado pharmacias in leblon for the most amazing lotions, bath salts, etc. all in beautiful, brightly colored packing and then head across the street to have lunch at quadrucci. this makes for quite a lovely afternoon.

style stalker: maxi skirts with double slits

i have been swooning over maxi skirts with double, thigh high slits ever since i saw them come down the runway at the sachin + babi show in new york. thankfully, style stalker has delivered. i'm definitely adding these two looks to my wardrobe for some sexy summer staples. i just grabbed the minted skirt in mallard here. pair it with the matching bodysuit for total glam.

taylor tomasi hill's celine pants

still. kicking. myself. for not buying these celine's when i had the chance to while in paris. i've been scouring e-bay hoping they will pop up in my size - it's not looking good. i think the moda operandi girls should re-release fab pieces like this (or say, the isabel marant blackson boots)...girls, are you listening? 

loving TTH right now. stellar style.

real vs. steal

zara is pretty much killing it right now, knocking off trends from top designers right and left (which could be considered both good and bad). the latest? funky mirrored prints a la peter pilotto

new in: givenchy

i have been swooning over these lovelies ever since i saw the stunning russian beauty, natalia vodianova, traipse into the westin bar during paris fashion week and say in the most beautiful accent, "i am looking for my children - did they come in here?" having been completely enamored with supermodels since about age 6, i knew exactly who she was and was completely starstruck. it was my most exciting sighting yet while in paris (next to seeing karl lagerfeld later at the ritz bar vendome). as i gave her the once over, my eyes came to a complete halt upon her toes. what are those? tom ford, i thought? 

i couldn't wait to share the news of my latest run in with my paris partner-in-crime, cinched at the waist. we met up moments later and headed across the street to the jardin des tuileries for the valentino show. as we stood around in the gravel slush that ken downing had just told us resembled nothing short of a frappucino when it rains in paris, the photographers began buzzing and swarming around at the latest celebrity making way into the show. we turned to see natalia, walking in on her beautiful stilts...

cinched  later informed me, after conducting some research, that they were in fact, givenchy. and this weekend, i bought them in white.
