Oh Argentina

I secretly harbor a desire to go to Buenos Aires. I can’t explain it. Maybe it’s an article I read a couple years ago in Slate saying Buenos Aires now is like Paris in the 20s. Maybe it’s reading about the tango so much and the beautiful words of Jorge Luis Borges. Maybe it’s from watching too many Argentinian movies and TV shows. I think Buenos Aires is my other Berlin. (Of course, this is a lot of idealization. I have a friend who lives there who would probably laugh at me.)

Oh Argentina

Women in Buenos Aires are beautiful (like aforementioned friend) and cosmopolitan. But they bring a bit of the ranch with them to their fashion. I thought this outfit would do well in Argentina, which is, as you recall, in the middle of summer this time of year. A short skirt with leggings from yurio Ellils and a crocheted camisole from Umeko Shan (over a skin tone bra from Annyka Bekkers) gives a great funky look for a sporty Argentinian girl.

Oh Argentina

Women in South America are not all dark haired with dark eyes. Many beauties there have blonde or brown hair, and so our beauty has a light brown hair, cut short and cute with a little barrette. The new group gift from Tricky Boucher is a perfect skin—a little tan for the summer but not too dark with light brown brows.

Oh Argentina

The boots? Made of several animal pieces including leather uppers and a feathered and furred leg. These boots from yorinminaty Beresford were too fun and funky to pass up and in SL, no animals ever get hurt in the making of boots.
