Yo Frida


When I was in Mexico earlier this year
 I wore:
a beautiful rust pashmina
a headscarf with pink skulls and crossbones on it
my breast cancer awareness pink glasses
proudly showed my crows feet instead of a crow unibrow
colorful beads with turquoise skulls
 my prettiest gypsy skirts
 ballerina slippers


Yo painted like a mad woman!

  9. I love this, it's a portrait full of beauty, grace, and that fully channels Frida! Where did you go in Mexico? I want desperately to visit Mexico City and hope to save enough money to one day do so <3 Congrats on the lovely work!
