Frida Kahlo (again!) and Rebozos

Frida Kahlo by Nickolas Muray for Vogue 1939

If you have been following long enough, you know how I love all things Frida Kahlo and consider her a timeless style icon. I recently went to an estate sale and acquired over 15 Mexican rebozos that immediately made me think of Frida! A rebozo is the Mexican term for shawl or wrap, which were nearly always a part of Frida's daily outfits. If you want to emulate Frida, I have been slowly adding them to the shop. A small sampling is below, but you can see the full stock HERE!
