Frida

Channeling Frida Kahlo on this Halloween.


I went to work like this :)


Someone in the elevator at work asked me what country I was from...
apparently this lady thought I was wearing the clothes from "my country".
So I had to explain to her the whole 
"It's Halloween and I am Frida Kahlo" thing.





I am sure the kids who knocked on my door trick or treating 
had no idea who I was.



I took clothes that were hanging in my closet
and that are part of my wardrobe to put this together.

  Mexican shirt - Club Monaco black skirt - H&M flats - H&M black belt 

It was quite easy, just googled her name and a million pictures came up.


And I loved the results.

Wow! What a great costume! As an art-lover, I recognized you immediately. Frida was such a talented painter. You capture her look.

I hope you don't mind but I'm adding you to my party post. This costume is too good not to share!
