"Frida"










To honor an amazing women and beautiful artist, ode to Frida Kahlo.
As soon as I found this dress in an op-shop a few weeks ago I was transported to the images of Frida's paintings and some of the photographs taken of her.
Her story and her incredible strength always inspire's me. My gorgeous friend Katherine has lent me a book "Self portrait in a velvet dress" Frida's wardrobe, it is the most magnificent insight to her legendary style.
A quote from the book:
One's wardrobe reveals one's politics;
it is the story one lives by;
it is one's symbolic self.
Honore De Balzac.
