Home Shopping Experience

17 Dec

Hello there!

I’m finally getting in holidays mood! Everything is starting to get calm at work – what a relief.

One of the marketing projects for the brand I work for, is to do a sort of  “shopping delivery” experience. The other day I was doing some research and found a brazilian brand – that I had never heard about before – that had a similar idea (damn!).

When I found A.Niemeyer’s website, I couldn’t believe they would actually send me a bag full of clothes, just like that, delivered directly at my work place. Curiosity couldn’t keep me from trying it out, so I filled out the form with basic informations such as name, address, telephone, sizes, submitted the order form and thought “no way this is so easy”. The next day, I received at my office a huge shopping bag! Inside, besides clothes perfectly folded and tagged with their prices, a lookbook, an envelope and a letter explaining how to proceed in case I wanted to keep something. I had 24 hours to try everything on and the next day they would pick it up again. If I liked something,  I could keep the garment and just put a check inside the envelope. Voilà!

Beautiful linen shirts and tops, fluid dresses, shorts – everything beach and summer inspired!

A great idea and very practical in our busy modern workaholic lives.

Lookbook to get inspired

Gift wrap just in case you want to buy something for a friend

I would have loved to keep everything, specially the white dress, but prices were out of this world. Well, I guess practicality isn’t cheap…

Welcome to Porto Alegre!

19 Nov

Yesterday I had a business trip to Porto Alegre, my hometown! I flew off from São Paulo in the morning and went directly to the Shopping Mall Iguatemi in Porto Alegre.

It’s funny how unfamiliar the city still seems to me. I was born in Porto Alegre, but never lived there, and even though we spent many holidays there visiting the family, I feel like I don’t know anything about the city!

Since I would spend only one day/night in Porto Alegre and leave the following morning, I chose something comfortable to wear for the trip and during the day. I then went to the Hotel to get ready for the party at the shop.

Ontem tive uma viagem à trabalho para a minha cidade natal, Porto Alegre.

Apesar de ter passado muitas férias em família por lá, nas casas de tias e tios, convivendo com primos, viajando para o litoral gaúcho, toda vez que chego na cidade é como se chegassse em um lugar totalmente desconhecido. Pela primeira vez, o motivo da minha visita foi outro e eu fui pra cidade apenas à trabalho, para voltar no dia seguinte. Do aeroporto direto para o Shopping Iguatemi, escolhi viajar com uma roupa confortável para ficar até à noite, quando fui ao Hotel me arrumar para a festa na loja. 

Travel & Day outfit - and my tired face after a long day!

I wore my favorite black trousers from Zara, a blue striped shirt, black blazer, Shoestock flats and Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag. I know my sister would wear high-heels no matter what, and she often goes away on business trips. But, as you might have noticed, I’m pretty basic and I love wearing flat shoes – even though Anna Wintour says “no no” to flats!

Vesti minha calça preta perfeita comprada na Zara em Amsterdam,  uma camisa azul listrada, blazer preto, sapatilhas e minha bolsa Louis Vuitton Neverfull. Ao contrário da minha irmã, que usa salto-alto até para dormir, eu sou beeem mais básica e clássica, e ainda prefiro a boa e confortavel sapatilha sempre que for possível deixar o salto de lado.

There's always space for more!
