Mexican Mania!

Always one striving to emulate Frida Kahlo’s wardrobe and accessories, I’m constantly on the hunt for cute Mexican adornments. And, as you might imaging, Mexican peasant tops are the rage here in Tejas! Not only are they comfy and cute, you can get them at the border for around $10. But for those of you who aren’t lucky enough to have Mexico knocking at your back door, finding vintage and vintage-inspired Mexican goodies can be a challenge! My most recent finds (all of which I love with a passion) can be seen below.
