frida khalo inspired

this season i’m seeing lots of peasant tops in whites and brights. instead of hippy chic, i’m going frida. i’ll take the flowers, ruffles and cotton gauze and tone it down and modern it up with lots of grey of course and mix that with denim, leather and chunky strappy platforms.
