|Forever 21 dress (old) and scarf // H&M vest // purse purchased in Puerto Vallarta|
It's the quirky items in my closet that get me out of my pajamas in the morning. For me there is no greater joy than having an item that requires a second look, or have a child take a glance, and then curiously whisper in her mother's ear. I have been stopped on the bus, the sidewalk, and even followed because of quirky items (but not in a creepy way!).
I found this Frida Kahlo bag while visiting Puerto Vallarta. I have a strange fascination with her; her painting haunt me. Yet at the same time I have always tried to ignore her. The woman moved to New Mexico for goodness sake. Who does that? (Georgia O'Keeffe.)
But I also love Miss O'Keeffe.
So maybe I need to move to New Mexico.
I should probably say that I have nothing against New Mexico. Well, I do...but it's completely based on nothing. I've never even been! Have any of you been there? Do you live there? Do you have a fascinating story about the state? Better yet, how did this become a post on New Mexico, and not the Frida Kahlo bag? (Or the birds in flight on my dress? Or the fact that I have a small Japanese town printed on the bottom of it?)
Thank you for reading!
