crying for argentina

This femme from Buenos Aires looks like she just walked out of a 1947 portrait session for Dior's New Look ...


I have always been curious about Argentina. Hopefully there will be a few femmes walking around in crinolines when I get there!

Now I wanted Mouret doing dresses as beautiful as this (not 1920's in particular though)

Sadly you won´t see many crinolines on the street here, although I did see a skirt with a thin layer of tulle underneath.
What you will see is lots of layered 80´s clothing. Hair that is either fashioned into a mullet, rollinga, or the jane birkin bang look.

Hi Mrs. Eurobrat , I'm from Buenos Aires , Argentina , and i should warn you : no crinolines here.

Anyway , I think you would really enjoy it here , you wouldn't miss the crinolines at all !!!

I was planning to go to Buenos Aires for new year, but I couldn´t find anymore flight tickets...

I´ve already heard great things about argentina, and its fashion too!

Buenos Aires...tango fire...breathless music of Astor Pizzola...pasionate dancers - women in split skirts, heels, and moist lips - men in black, strong and graceful, shirts unbuttoned.

"Crinolines? La Femme, mon pauvre et noble enfant.", he said.

That description reminds me of my years flamenco dancing... yes those skirts were quite sexually spectacular.

Poor and noble? Absolument.

i just love the way girls dress in argentina
i'm actually french but i've lived here for a couple of years
they take trends and make them their own, kind of edgier...
and their hair!!
anyway i just love this girl's dress
it would be amazing if i saw more people dressed like that here
