Frida Forever

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.

Pink blockage

I have never been afraid of colors in my wardrobe, and on one occasion I got a comment from a person looking at the contents of my closet that she would get an epileptic seizure 😉 – for me that was the best compliment ever! I love to play with different colors, mostly with greens and blues, but my basic colors are always black during the winter days, and white during the summer. Color blocking is a great fashion trend with rules of combining colors in your everyday outings, but without going overboard.

Modern time Elf

Every year during the November and December I get caught up by Lord of the Rings virus :)! These rainy days are perfect for never ending LOTR marathons. That wonderful fantasy world often inspires me for some of my outfits…When I first saw this beautiful embroidered green coat (second hand, thank you E-bay), it instantly reminded me on nature, elves, Rivendell and whole wonderful Tolkien world…
