Snapshots: Paula's Evening in Rio

During her trips to Rio de Janeiro, ViX designer Paula Hermanny is constantly on the go--from soaking up the latest of Carioca beach culture to going on inspiration hunts, or spending some time in the atelier. It's hard to imagine how she has time to squeeze in some fun!

This past weekend, Paula was able to do just that.  She attended a dinner party hosted by her friend Adriana Viana. And aside from enjoying the lively company, Paula found herself especially enamoured with Adriana's gorgeous home, so much so that it looked as if she had found a location "for the next ViX photoshoot!"

During her night out in Rio, Paula was exuberant in easy Carioca sophistication—a style not too terribly different from that of La Jolla.  For the occasion, she opted for a long black dress with a low-cut back. Unexpected tassel details made her look a touch bohemian. Her hair was down and natural but later during the night she swept it up into a casual bun, highlighting her decollete, shoulders and back.



During another photo op, next to Adriana and her daughter Rafaela, Paula beamed relaxed and confident.  Her secret?  Balancing a sense of style with personalization. She donned her favorite hoop earrings and gold ring, owning a look that was understated yet spoke volumes about the charm of her own style simplicity.

“Balance is the key to dressing,” Paula explained, “know what you love and what makes you feel good because it will always show through!”

We could not agree more!
