Tudo bem

Chantal from Beau Lifestyle recently shared some gorgeous pics of her trip to Portugal, and one immediately struck me:

It’s the Rua Augusta Arch, set of my favorite J.Crew catalog cover EVER. Isn’t it beautiful? Just look at the mosaic tiles set into the ground! And whoever thought to paint the buildings next to the arch yellow is a genius.

Chantal’s trip looks like it was amazing. And as a sidenote, J.Crew might not be able to size a t-shirt to save their life, but MAN can they shoot a cover.

(If you want to check out more of J.Crew’s awesome shoot in Portugal from the February 2010 catalog, their ‘Passport to Portugal’ feature is still up on their site!)

  1. You totally snagged me with the Portuguese title…and boy, oh boy, is that picture a beaut! Desperately want to visit Portugal…preferably in the *near* future (c: Happy Monday, dollface!

  2. Oh so gorgeous. What a good eye you have to make that connection!

  3. Hi Lovely, I had no idea! Such a nice way to find things out!
    A big hug from Spain!

  4. Agree with Alena, I wouldn’t have made the connection and I’ve been there. Absolutely love Lisbon and Portugal in general. The Boy is Portuguese so I’m hoping to go back, but this time to the north.
