I loved learning about Argentine history, listening to Spanish on the street, zooming around in cabs and trying to speak with their friendly drivers, watching a tango show, consuming lots of steak, empanadas, and wine, exploring the different barrios (Palermo, La Boca, and Recoleta mostly), going out dancing, and most of all, taking in Argentina's summer weather and sunshine... ahh, it was just the best.

And I'd like to take a collection
of pretty pictures & primary
colors, bead them in my scarves,
tangle them in my hair, blot my eyes
with their light and love, take a knife &
fork and gobble them up pixel by sheen,
make sweet rhythm to their colorful beats,
their one-shot tales, their two-dimensional
frames, their three-dimensional lives...

My loves, I'm baaack! (I had the time of my life, I'm just bursting with stories and photos to share with you! Next post, I promise.) But first, I want to acknowledge a question the Sartorialist asked this week about the two hottest fashion shows of the season, Celine and Louis Vuitton: "Are you a Celine woman or a LV woman?" Well, my answer is Celine, indubitably, Celine. (Louis Vuitton can suck it.)
Maybe it's because when I see a Celine collection, I can't help but think Aha! This is what a real woman wears! Because the crisp tailoring and structure seem to embody the strong, sophisticated working woman -- a woman who is comfortable in her clothes and most of all, comfortable with herself.
Or maybe I just have a girl-crush on Creative Director Phoebe Philo, a fashion visionary, BFF of Stella McCartney, and a young mama to boot. Or because Celine is exactly the "older sister" of Chloé, Philo's previous fashion house. Mon Dieu, how we've grown up!
Whatever it is that draws me to Celine, it's undeniable: the Celine woman is fierce. Fierce because she is graceful and tough at the same time. She's a woman on a mission, and isn't that inspiring? (Whatever mission it may be...) Who wouldn't want to be her?

Today, I felt the first tiptoe of spring in Manhattan. I wore a light trench coat and walked to class completely drenched in sunshine, my long silky scarf flying in the warm (oh so warm!) breeze. Really, I wish I could be outside all the time in beautiful weather like this, but just three more days until my exams are over! (Wish me luck.) And then Buenos Aires, here I come! I leave Friday. :)
PS: Did you watch the Oscars??? I adored every single moment, from the pretty dresses to Steve & Alec's hilarious jokes. (Rachel McAdams & Elizabeth Banks' dresses below are my fave -- do I have a bias for blue? I think.... definitely!)

A Little Tooth
Your baby grows a tooth, then two,
and four, and five, then she wants some meat
directly from the bone. It's all
over: she'll learn some words, she'll fall
in love with cretins, dolts, a sweet
talker on his way to jail. And you,
your wife, get old, flyblown, and rue
nothing. You did, you loved, your feet
are sore. It's dusk. Your daughter's tall.

Can you guess what I had? (Hint: I'm very carnivorous.)
