wut is it? Its awesome. Last summer I was lucky enough to visit my best friend while she went home to Argentina for thesummer...well winter south of the equator. While freezing my butt off in Buenos Aires I was amazed to find some of the coolest style I have ever seen. Parisian's eat your hearts out, Argentine's might be the coolest dressed people I have seen yet. They make it seem effortless with their unique garments that make you feel one of a kind, insane shoes, and of course the best leather jackets. A huge plus is with the American dollar the best designer gear in Argentina is very affordable for the quality your getting. My favorite buy of the trip was a Belgian sheep fur vest from Coragroppo. The cut was unlike any I have ever seen, with a racer back, and the front hangs longer than the back, so it looks so cute peaking through under cropped jackets. I would have bought everything in the store..... oh well next time.... when I have an unlimited budget
My next favorite buy was this unique jacket from Maria Cher. This store was a mix of beautifully tailored clothing for women who want to go to work making a statement, and then great contemporary wear. Perfect casual clothes you throw on and will look somewhat put together without trying (my favorite kind).
I also picked up this cute floral top from Rapsodia, the Argentine equivalent to anthropology, but better. On the website under tendencias you can see the different styles they emulate.

The Shoes... Well of course they have the best leather shoes. I only have pics I snapped on my iphone because I left them back in new york, but the post would not be complete without the shoes. If I had more money to spend I would have came back with a suitcase full :/
I also found the fringe bag I set out to find before the trip, and it is my favorite satchel, the best music festival bag, it carried everything I needed for Coachella and Bonnaroo. Found this at Prune
Here are other awesome stores I would have done major damage in if I had the budget. These websites speak for themselves. Argentina really has the coolest fashion, and they are the best dressed people I have come across.
