Graffiti in Rio

Here are a bunch of photographs I took while I was in Rio. I completely forgot about them and then got sucked into looking at all my photos from this past year and remembered that I never posted about them.

Rio is one of my favorite cities I've ever been to. One of the things that stood out was the amazing graffiti. The city commissions artists to paint the streets instead of your regular old delinquent graffiti artists. And what's really cool is when they graffiti over the art. Unfortunately I didn't think to photograph it until later in my trip. But I started tracking this one artist that I just love. And of course have no clue who he/she is, but really adore the style.

I heart: skulls

There's Hot Topic skulls, and then there's Alexander McQueen skulls. For some reason, they're a world apart. And if I had some serious cajones I'd be all over that knuckleblaster ring. Kick ass!

Burberry splurge//Banana steal

I am a big fan of this look, but obviously not of it's $2 thou price tag. In my hunt for the perfect trench, with all the gizmos and gadgets of a traditional trench, I've landed on the one from Banana. I actually got it a couple months ago when I had a 40% off one item certificate, so it ended up being quite a steal. And I look forward to hunting around some vintage shops (or ebay) for a faux fur stole. If anyone has any recommendations, please do tell!

Jason Schwartzman for Band of Outsiders

Welcome back, me! It's been a while. Sometimes I just get into these funks where I'm just not in the blogging mood. So if there's anyone out there still reading, I'm alive and thanks for coming back! Here are some pictures of my honey, Jason Schwartzman, who evidently I've been accused of predictably liking.
