hey pretty

I'm crazy for the intricate details and brilliant colors from Brazilian designer Maria Bonita Extra.

The Spring '09 silhouettes skim the body with a silky freshness. Cuban-style hats, mannish shoes and winged sandals (reminiscent of Icarus) accent every look, offsetting the light pastels and floral touches. I love the collection's femininity - the line is refreshing, yet simple, especially compared to seasons past.

Now, if I could only figure out where to shop them online.
