Feelin' Frida!

I was inspired by artist Frida Kahlo when putting together my outfit today.  I have always been intrigued by Kahlo's art, unique style, and her life, and the film "Frida" starring Salma Hayek is on my list of favourites.  My blogger buddy Vix, of Vintage Vixen has been feeling the Frida vibe as well - you can see her tribute to the artist here

I've been having fun with my hair, adding scarves and flowers, and I've been surprised by how it positively affects my mood.   Summer is a perfect time to channel your inner "Frida" - just skip the monobrow!
I'm wearing:  eyelet trimmed petticoat - 69 Vintage (Toronto)
linen tunic/dress - From Mars
Belt - The Sentimentalist
leather cuff - The Fairies Pyjamas
fabric orchid - some tween store (5 for $10)
large ring - Tribal Mountain

  2. If I came to your house there would be a few things I'd want to try on. This outfit would be one of them for sure. I also love your Chocolate Raspberry ensemble a few months back and you have several other things I love!! That tunic top/dress is awesome! I love that huge ring, the leather cuff bracelet and that happiness on top of your head. yes, it would be hard to carry a scowl with a pretty like that following you around. ;)
    This is fun!! It would be heaven for everyone to meet and we brought all our favorite things to share. ;)

    1. I agree, that would be excellent if we could play dress-up from each other's closets!

  4. Ooh, that is a fabulous Frida-inspired look, Shelley, I love it! It looks cool and beautiful for a hot day, but would work equally well with your wonderful pink boots and a shawl when the weather isn't so warm. Lovely flower too, I agree it is impossible to be grumpy with a flower in your hair! xxxx

  6. I was listening to the radio on Saturday morning and apparently the Frida Kahlo look is "in" for the summer, so we're leading the way! You look gorgeous and I do love it when you wear maxi skirts! x

  12. One of the best things about coming back from vacation is checking out your blog to see what you've been up to during the week I was gone. Your Frida Kahlo riff is fabulous -- the skirt, the jewelry and the attitude!
