you go on ahead, i''ll just hang around

florals and wavy silky flowy dresses are on my list. I like the huarache shoes, with the weaving, braid-like straps here let me show you a picture....

im very much, every summer actually, inspired by the array of colors in mexican textiles, and arizona navajo indian prints, the patterns are phenomenal, i get very excited when i see these type of materials hanging on racks at thrift, consignment, sell and trade stores and new shops, too expensive to shop at sometimes, like, Anthropology(can you say, inspiration?). I love the way alot of these old looks are being brought back, ufortunately, of course at high price. Much to my suprise the things you find down rodeo drive or melrose can easily be found in vintage stores, thrift stores, consignment stores....think of places grandma would take her old rags to sell ....thats where you want to be. thats the place for me.
