Instagram Crushes

If you have a Blackberry you are missing big time on the big party called Instagram.  I'm an irreversible addict; I should confess.  What? Facebook? oh... that ain't feed ego! Instagram is like a labyrinth!, that I should warn you but, once you taste it you're taken forever.
I don't remember how I came across Luisa Fernanda (@luisafere) but, I'm so glad I did!  Not only does she have the most updated and fashionable wardrobe ever but, also the best Instagram gallery I've seen so far.  Every time I look at one of her assemblances I weep because it reminds me of my lonely wardrobe still stocked inside a container in a port in Santos, Sao Paulo, waiting to reunited with its mami.  If you don't know Luisa you should and get inspired!  You'll see how she can teach a thing or two to many fashion bloggers? 
 Seriously? converse, leopard throw, a dog and the coolest air giraffe on a Sunday morning? 
She has the coolest kid in the block, Alonzo Mateo and as you can see him above he doesn't fall far from the tree when it comes to style. 
 He is adorable!
 Then I get to sneak peek into her home too.

Ha, we are all writing posts which are giraffe related.
I love the name Luisa, it's always been on my names for girls list.

This is so ironic ,I just asked my daughter what she was doing on the phone the ptherday and she was doing Instagram! Of course a 17 year old has no patience to explain it to me, so thanks so much for posting this! Now I feel in the "know"!
Happy Monday, these where great images!

I like all names that end with A for girls. I find them so alluring.

Glad I can give you a glimpse of it. I should tell you it is addictive.

These images are beautiful, Julie! That photo with the penguin is priceless! I had a penguin toy when I was little, it was my favourite and I lost it somehow. The, several years ago my husband gave me a plush emperor penguin: I smile every time I look at it. :)

You know, It's just another one of those amazing things that has changed the world! My coveted magazines have been piling up...unread, since I started following blogs and instagram. What a wonderful gift for those of us who wanted to express ourselves visually but have never had an outlet! I love pretending to be Grace Coddington!

Julie! Wow! I am truly flattered and honored! Thank you so much! I have to say we both share instagram crushes on @dylanlex and @denisebovee.

I am so obsessed over Drew's style and her perfection with mixing jewelry that it keeps me searching for that elusive "piece de resistance" that hopefully one day will complete my jewelry box. Or better yet. As a woman who loves fashion, that search will aaaalways continue!!! ;)

Denise seems to have the perfect life! The simplicity they exude full of rich moments is enviable!

Sending you a big hug!!!
Luisa Fernanda
