With the fall weather creeping close, I should be prepping for a 'turn of season' apparel revamp, but instead I feel the incessant need to adorn myself with various mixes of mesmerizing crochet. This might be due largely to the fact that I'm still basking in the Brazilian rays here in Rio - and while New York is preparing for the upcoming chillier days ahead, Brazil is getting ready for its summer.  Although my trip is soon drawing to a close, I'm striving to suck up every bit of summer with maxi dresses, platform sandals, twisted bandeau bikinis and the much personally adored crochet, such as this black one. I think it carries with it some favorable elements - from the slouchy, wide neckline that allows one shoulder to peek up, fringed hem and sleeves and black, floral pattern, which hints a certain little dose of innocence with some subtle feeling of darkness.

I can virtually live in crochet. What are some personal clothing items you just cannot live without?
