Sao Paulo has everything, even the objectivity, for its inhabitants do admit that fashion, creating it, especially spontaneously, without the marketing research, strategy & business plan, is better in Rio de Janeiro.
I think it has to do with how generally 'relaxed' you are: if there are no dress codes to obey, then anything is possible.
Here's my little take on it: a necklace made of used (not by me) and found (by me) public phone cards with Christ the Redeemer (i've redeemed the cards, too! gave them second life!) and the 'almost gloves' made of a pair of socks (the cleanliest among us be advised: socks were mine, never worn & still washed before re-usage).
