I've heard that both Argentian and Brazilian leather products are famous. From my experience, Brazilian leather products have higher quality and economical price. The purse and shoes I bought in Argentina was OK but relatively much more expensive. So, my advice is, go crazy shopping for those pumps in Brazil.
- Dumond in Rio and Brasilia, Brazil. They got some crazy pumps. Love that shop.
- Mr. Cat has some pretty affordable purses
- Leblon Shopping Center and around that area
- Barra Shopping Center
- Pulmero District around the Soreno Plaza: funky and trendy shops
