look book: south of the border

June 22, 2010


I have been living in this Mexican mini dress. It's so pretty and comfy. I love the embroidery detail around the yoke and shoulders. The flowers are so intricate and since it was handmade I can't help but wonder who this woman {or man} was that put it together.




dress ebay, shoes Jeffrey Campbell, wooden bracelets SF boutique

I can't believe June is almost over. Even though yesterday was the first official day of summer I always get sad to see the month of June fly by! I have to keep reminding myself that the fun is really just starting!

  2. Is that a fishbone braid? I used to do those in my hair ALL the time, but didn't for a while and now I have no idea how! Ha ha.
    That dress is just adorable!

  9. Mara! I love the dress. It's so colorful and fun. Definitely a summer dress! Don't you just love the JC snicks too. I wore mine so much when I first got them. Now, they're taking a break and I'm having fun with my JC splendids. I can't wait till my hair is a bit longer... I want to sport the fishtail braid. Yours is perfection. Happy Tuesday pretty chica.

    xx Love & Aloha

  10. p.s. I just read your tweet (on the sidebar) that Ginger got stung by a bee! Poor baby. That happened to our pup Pooma, on her left front paw. She hobbled around for a bit.. we dipped her paw in water/vinegar solution.. she took a nap, and an hour later was fine. Thanks goodness. I hope Ginger is okay. :)

    xx Love & Aloha
