missing the simplicity and sunshine of Rio de Janeiro. my friends and i have been talking about renting a place by the beach in Leblon next year, and i think i need to make it happen. I recently came across my itinerary for my last trip to Rio in 2009 and it made me so happy...beach, breakfast, botanical garden, thrift shopping (brecho), dancing...and repeat the next day. and when i go again, i think i need this above steven alan dress to accompany me. but for now, paris in the spring will definitely suffice!
