so last summer i started finding myself wearing scarves in my hair with big necklaces and dangly earings.
a little bit carmen miranda-esque. then over the course of the year i began to feel i was tending more towards frida kahlo.
she was such an amazing artist, and had such a difficult life, she fuels me with inspriration.
I started wearing full skirts, and doing my hair like hers, braided with ribbons, or clipped up with flowers.
of course, as is often the way, i started to see that i was not alone, with this little dalliance.
lots of people getting inspiration from frida & carmen. here is some of the imagery that i found along the way.
and the deligtful carmen miranda…
and then, to complete my obsession, a dear friend got me this amazing book for my birthday…..
then just to really complete the journey,i had to get these cushions for my red velvet couch
