Aztec Enchantment

IMG_0111
From the woven hammocks to the catwalk, looks like fashion is under some heavy tribal influence. Prints are definitely getting bigger and bolder this year with Aztec and Navajo-inspired prints taking over the fashion scene. Contemporary lines, modern graphics mixed with ancient arts blanched in bright colors in contrasting tones and relaxed neutrals make this trend perfect for spring/summer. Could this trend be any more festive?

Here’s yet another vintage find from Looking for Lola, nobody does sophisticated vintage fashion better than the duo behind the label. They swiftly draw the fine line between vintage and pre-loved clothing. I love the combination of pastel hues and earth tones over the dominant mustard color. The colorful buntings on the straps and neckline add a playful touch to the tribal graphics. This is the perfect slip-on summer dress which is both trendy and comfortable; the best part is, it’s a steal at $15! Woooh, dancing around the bonfire now!

Chased after what’s left of the afternoon sunshine en route to buy some refreshments outside our village. We got to wrap up my obligatory outfit shoot in 10 minutes, thanks to my sisters Ela for taking my photos and Isa for being the look out!

 This dress makes me want to braid my hair (maybe add a feather or two?), grab my fringed leather sling bag, slip on suede moccasins and hop on a train to Brrzona. In Pocahontas' language, I now bid you AnaOkay, time to pick up my bow and shoot some arrows!
