Thanks, Timberland!

I am Brazilian and therefore winter scares the heck out of me. I'm already biting my nails over here. BUT... there's no need to worry (that much) anymore. Timberland, which has recently opened a new shop in the Chicago area, sent me THE MOST AMAZING COMFORTABLE NON-SLIPPERY HEELED WINTER LEATHER boots. YES. All those adjectives in one single pair of boots. They actually go by "Women's Stratham Heights Tall Boot".

This is like my 4th winter in Chicago and so far I had NEVER found a decent pair of winter boots. I even (unrealistically) thought of starting a line or something, but thank god I didn't have to do that. Timberland took care of it. AT LAST I'll be able to go to a nicer place without having to change out of my ugly snow boots in the car.

They have a whole line of non-slippery heeled shoes (a life saver - literally - if you live in Chicago) called Stratham Heights. Next I wanna get this:
These ones are super cute as well:



See more in their site or in their new shop at the Westfield Old Orchard mall.

PS: Timberland is an eco-conscious company, learn more about their programs here.

Isa (me!) on Trés Awesome

Last week I ran into Emma Arnold from Trés Awesome (see post here), and she again managed to take a picture of me that I actually like - even though I do recognize I need to a) get a haircut and b) get a tan. Emma is doing an amazing work documenting street style from Chicago and beyond. Check out her blog for more.

Below see another shot of me she took a few months ago:

Thanks, Emma! <3 Have fun in NY! - by the way, she'll be covering the NYFW for the ELLE street style section and Trés Awesome. Amy Creyer from Chicago Streestyle Scene will be there as well. Stay tuned to their blogs!

Charlotte was walking with her friend James (below), whose earrings really drew my attention. Turned out James designed them herself for her Whatever-whatever accessory line:


*James, will you send me the link to your shop? Thanks!

Kirsten in Cracker Your Wardrobe



































I know it's taken me FOREVER but finally here are the pictures from the Cracker Your Wardrobe June issue Kirsten Kilponen was featured in.

Well, where should I start...

I simply LOVE Kirsten. She has a fantastic style. A fantastic haircut. Face, apartment, personality... you name it. She owns a vintage shop with also cutie Alysse D'Alessandro called The Sometimes Store, which they run from Kirsten's place in Pilsen. SUPER worth a visit. Their selection is beyond cool, and their prices are crazy good. Sometimes I do think they're crazy.

Anyway, Kirsten is not only a pretty face. She is a philosophy major, interested in studying ethics applied to everyday matters. Besides that she is also a hair stylist. Beauty and brains, the complete package.

Plus... Kirsten is SO sweet, but not without a great sense of humor. I said she was the whole package.

Find more info about The Sometimes Store here. I'll try to get Kirsten's interview from Cracker and post below (can you send me Kirs?).
