As many of you know, my mom passed away a few years ago. I have lots of pictures and objects that belonged to her, but only one made it here. This is a very small bear I gave her for her birthday. I remember I was totally broke that year; I felt bad giving her such a small insignificant trinket, but she loved it. She used to kiss it on its head every time she saw it. I'm glad he's keeping me company here ;).
I love clothes and fashion, but I'm definitely not a fashion victim (nor am I known for having good taste in fashion, ha!). I always choose independent designers from Argentina, although that will have to change now, for obvious reasons. 90% of the shoes I own are Luz Principe's. She only makes a couple of pairs per size, so it's almost impossible to run into someone who owns the exact same pair of shoes. I brought most of my shoes designed by her, but these sneakers are probably my favorite ones. I've always loved Pucci-like patterns!
Pesqueira is one of my favorite independent brands from Argentina; and this is my favorite leather bag ever! You can only get it in Pesqueira's only store in Buenos Aires and at the MoMA in New York. It's not very practical, but I love it.
This is a Valentine's Day special picnic set from Pesqueira, too. I like the canvas because it matches one of the dresses I bought there and that's the notbook where I doodle and write ideas for the blog. The metal heart is a cookie cutter.
This is my favorite trenchcoat. I actually left it here when I came to the States for the first time two years ago. It doesn't match any of the other pieces of clothing I own :/, but I wear it anyway.
I wanted to have something I'd bought in Japan, so I chose this Astro Boy bag. I bought it in Harajuku when I traveled there for the second time.
This is the best gift David could have given to me. He wrote a complete journal to me and decorated it with pictures of us :D. This is one of my most valuable possessions.
Another gift with incalculable sentimental value: an album I got from my students and friends from the country. They gave it to me during a farewell party they threw for me a couple of months ago. It contains lots of pictures of them they took especially for me.
Is there any object you couldn't live without?
Have a nice Wednesday! ;)
