I have a particular affinity for fun, bright and detailed clothing and accessories that are (usually) handmade by women from across the globe. It feels like I’m wearing a piece of art that has a story and life of it’s own.
As you know, I’m a huge fan of Ole’ San Miguel (shirt worn above). However, they can be difficult to find, since they typically sell exclusively at the Round Top, Texas Antique Fair. So, I was really excited when I was introduced to a couple of online spaces that offer similar “pretty pieces”, so I thought I’d share. The first, Mi Golondrina, was introduced to me by my sister. They have the prettiest Mexican dresses (perfect for summer- dressed up or down, or worn as a cover up) and shirts. The second, Gaia for Women, was introduced to me at a Women’s group. I am crazy for their clutches (fold over, flat and roundies), and I seriously want every single one of their beaded bracelets! And, of course, I love Noonday Collection. At any given moment I can find at least three things I love on their site. Right now I’m loving their empress earrings (worn in pic), their cubed studs and their love bird bracelet.
