Over the years I’ve fervently collected and worn scads of colorful bohemian and ethnic clothing.
Seriously…they turn me on, man!
From vintage handmade Guatemalan cloth to my old Mexican jacket…
to tops made more recently in all parts of Latin America…
like this piece of art
- made by an award winning Oaxacan family -
that was totally hand stitched
using an old traditional method that actually separates the cloth fibers.
Some pieces are more contemporary,
from brands such as Johnny Was, Biya, Free People, and Lucky.
I think about the time,
the working hands,
and the cultures
that created these soulful pieces.
This love of beauty, the work ethic, the talent, the boldly jeweled colors…
the serious delight that these masterpieces have brought into my life.
What turns you on – style-wise, that is???
