Collages From Buenos Aires

Just before Christmas I went to Buenos Aires for my aunt’s 50th Birthday. Wow – what a trip it was!

I have been meaning to blog about this trip for ages but I really wanted to go through the photos and make some sort of sense of them.

I didn’t really want to blog about a family holiday as it’s a bit meaningless if you don’t know the people involved. So while I was there I tried to take some “style” shots which I could put together.

So here’s my first installment – with a couple of collages. Hope you like them!

Argentina, Buenos Aires, Gaucho

La Bamba de Areco

Some of the shots are from La Bamba de Areco – a fantastic ranch outside Buenos Aires. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven – a beautiful pool, beautiful views…  stunning interior design and some very talented horses! Have a look at the website and you’ll see exactly what I mean.

Plaza Dorrego, San Telmo

OMG – antique heaven! The flea market was amazing – if it wasn’t for the fact that I had to pack everything into a suitcase and fly back I would have gone wild! There were beautiful antique religious icons, elaborate chandeliers and..oh yes…shops devoted to vintage clothing. Seriously my husband paled as I found this one shop, which had rails and rails of white lace blouses all packed and laundered, ready to go. But hello…the prices were not far off London prices – so no deals to be done. Gutted!

Buenos Aires, Palermo Viejo

Bar 6, Palermo Viejo

Palermo Viejo was buzzing. Definitely the place to be in Buenos Aires. Great for people watching and shoe shopping. Although there did seem to be a huge trend going on involving massive wedges and I mean massive. Not a great lover of wedges, I swear they make your calves look big!

Well, that’s the first installment – more collages to follow and some purchases I made along the way!

Ciao for now.
