Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter, was truly a definition of an empovered, beautiful, and a unique woman. She lived a life which consisted of many ups and downs, life of constant pain, enormous talent, and a will to live to the fullest. In her paintings she prefered a lot of patterns and colors, and her own personal style reflected that. Flowers in her hair, big golden earrings and necklaces, long ruffled skirts and her trademark unibrow made her a person to remember and admire. Today her self-portraits and paintings are widely recognised, and she is a constant inspiration to fashion designers.
I deeply admire her, and I love her work, her strength, and her fantastic fashion sense. I possess a lot of jewelry, but I often end up with one of my favourite pairs of earrings – a picture of Frida’s self-portrait with a thorn necklace and a hummingbird. When I put them on, I feel womanly, strong, and proud at the same time.
