South of The Border

I should probably be designing my line, but I'm hard pressed finding the time between case studies, tests, work, and my social life. That doesn't mean I haven't been thinking of my Mexicali collection that I began designing months (and months) ago.
But what's exciting is I may have a new source of inspiration: I'm going to MEXICO!
I get to spend a week at a resort just outside of Puerto Vallarta. It's my first time in Mexico, and my first time traveling to somewhere other than the US or other Canadian provinces. I am ridiculously excited.
And since I've been lazily neglecting this blog, I've decided to perk it up a bit by tracking down some Mexican-inspired fashion photos for all you fashionistas to geek out on. Try not to drool, I know it can be hard.Printed Canvas Bag, Prada
Eeeee, I WANT IT. Orange isn't usually my thing... but this is CUTE. If only it didn't have the $1,750 Prada insignia on it...

OPI Nail Colour Ad
Elegantly traditional.
"Huaraches " Sandals by Intuition
While I'd probably fall on my face wearing these shoes, it wouldn't stop me from wearing this fancy version of a traditional South American sandal, even if for only 20 minutes..

My favourite aspect of Mexican Culture, Los Dias de Muertos.
