Carioca Resort 2012

It's finally here! My sister and I have managed to revive our line of caftans and tunics even when we are miles apart. Carioca refers to a native or inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro. We have always been fascinated with the Brazilian beach lifestyle and if only we can wear caftans and tunics everyday we would. Hence the name and the line. 

The Carioca piece is not only for the beach. We see to it that each and every piece we create is something you pack with you to a beach getaway and not store at the back of your closet when you return home. They too are made for you to revel in and survive the urban heatwave. In a manner that is all so chic and effortless.
The Pomeroy is the kind you pull out of the closet, throw in, accessorize, and out the door you go. It's roomy, breezy, gauzy in navy and white stripey. Perfection.
The Bahia lends a touch of effortless cool to an all too dressed up ensemble of sequins and pumps. Who knew a beach cover up can also work for a night about town.
You can never go wrong with a tunic you can dress up or dress down. The Marica is your go-to for weekend lounging. 
For day time garb-- casual or dressy, the Oswaldo will see you through. 
Catch us this Friday at the Brown Bag Vintage and Crafts Market at Filipinas Heritage Library. Find these and more in different colors and prints, a lot of which are one-offs (some even vintage!), at this specialty artisan market. 

And here's a treat for Mischmash readers: Just simply say you're one and you automatically get 10% off! See you there!
