Turns out, Brazil is the perfect setting for a rom-com style shopping spree montage. Especially Sao Paulo.

Say goodbye to that Lululemon t-shirt, and say hello to a crap-ton of glitter! Before going to the hotel, Brian and friends beelined straight for Ladeira Porto Geral — a major shopping district in Sao Paulo — to find the perfect get-up for Carnival. The results were… how do you say fabulous in Portuguese?
