If you got out of bed in this Chicago snowy morning kind of not knowing what to make of your day (other than superbowl later this afternoon) you might wanna consider stopping by the Randolph Street Market. Husband and I headed there yesterday and I had a very successful day (and to be quite honest not enough time to see all the great vintage goodies).
This was one of my finds yesterday, at the Dethrose Vintage and Rose Vintage booth. Now, there’s a lot more to be seen at the market. I mean, a lot! It’s open from today from 10 am to 5 pm. If you can’t make it this time, don’t panic. There’s more next month! Little tip: onion and caprese empanadas from the Empanadus booth. Heaven on earth, I’m not kidding.
I’m wearing:topshop blouse, aqua skirt, forever 21 boots, michael kors watch, h&m and purchased in brazil bracelets and bangles, neon orange lipstick by mac
When I was a little girl, my mother and I got in a big car crash. I had to go through a risky operation and that left me with an also big scar across my belly. This has been part of me since, and it never really bothered me to the point I’d ever try to cover it up. Who am I kidding, belly display in Brazil is as classic as the trench coat. The transformations your body is exposed to overtime tells a story of who you are. Just like my “made in brazil” tattoo is expressive of where I come from and my wrinkles will represent wisdom acquired in years to come, my scar reminds me I’m a survivor. Something I never wanna forget. So hide it?
I hope everyone had a holly jolly Christmas, with plenty of eating, noise, “Home Alone” playing in the background, gift exchanging… you know, the usual. The Robinson’s Holiday Extravaganza began on the 23rd, with the ladies lunch and cookie decorating/baking ritual following. On the 24th, we began a new tradition with a midnight Christmas dinner (a Brazilian thing that I’ve brought on to the table, literally. On the 25th we opened gifts while savoring my mother-in-law’s crazy-good finger foods and later reunited with the whole Jacobi clan (grandma, aunts/uncles and cousins for an even larger celebration). It’s the next day and I still feel the food coma. Santa was extremely generous this year (Tom Ford’s Nikita: awesome), there’s no room for complaining. What about you guys? Any new traditions or old ones you would like to tell me about so I can copy next year?
