YELLOWS AND BROWNS – SOUTH BRAZIL

Another day in Florianopolis…Those pictures were taken at Forte de Santana.  Leaving fashion on the side a little bit. I really want  to tell about this place !!!!! I f you ever go there you must understand how was the consolidation of this part of southern Brazil as belonging to the Portuguese crown and the arrival of the first Azorean immigrants. If you walk through the main streets and appreciate the old buildings that count a little bit of the history of our colonization by the Azorean people and the difficulties in keeping the area in a region coveted by other pirates and explorers. A journey dedicated to our past through the time can be a good tip. I have wrapped my hair with this unique fabric from India. Working with the streaks of yellow and gold in the fabric of my head piece I am wearing a matching brown top from Cotton Colors Tricot. Belt and sunglasses are from the vintage store Brecho Tumel do Tempo( Sao Paulo). These boots literally saved my feet from the long day of walking, they are from Thadiva. And Finally, this very unique black skirt is available at our stall in the Bondi Markets, Sydney.
