Frida Kahlo

My mom bought me this book for Christmas, and I'm finding it so inspiring! " Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress."

Pardon my crummy photos…it's a book full of images of Frida's wardrobe.  Truly amazing.  The traditional Mexican patterns are so simple, I'm feeling inspired to try and make my own "Frida" outfit.  I don't think my embroidery skills are up to par however…FreiaFreida2Freida1Freida3

The book also includes many photos of her white petticoats, bags, scarves, and head pieces.  This book is a must for the Frida  or textile lover.
