This costume is super easy if you tend to gravitate towards the boho look. Just a flowy maxi dress, a hip to knee length kimono and every necklace that contains some sort of stone in it. The key to this look though is the glasses, which I totally just saw a pair of at Michael's for about $2. Easy as pie.
Dia De Los Muertos also know as the Day of the Dead, is a Mexican holiday that is essentially about celebrating and remembering family members who have passed.
The traditional flower of Dia De Los Muertos is the Marigold, which in Spanish is the Campasúchitl. Altars and graves are saturated in them and personally, I think they're one of the prettiest flowers.
Last year I attended the Dia De Los Muertos festival at Grand Park LA , and I think I want to go again this year provided I get off of work early enough on one of the days, and I'll have this sweet little Marigold flower crown to wear to it.
Fake Marigold flowers
Thin wire headband
Needle nose pliers
Remove all the flower heads from the wire bouquet.
Begin wrapping the nubs that are left on the bottom of the flower heads with the thin wire around the headband. Then wrap the floral tape around the wire to make sure that your hair doesn't get caught in your hair.
Rene Magritte's "The Son of Man" is by far my favorite painting. I can't explain why, but I know it has something to do with "The Thomas Crown Affair" and the scene where he returns the painting, for sure.
Everything that my little Barbie loving five year old self would have loved, and everything that my 29 year old novelty loving self loves. These are my three favorite things from the collection that you can purchase on the site right now.
I can't even, with the looks walking down the runway. Now if only I could afford a few of the pieces that I saw. The only model who I feel walked the way Barbie would have is the girl in a yellow/teal bathing suit with a midi length mesh cover up and peace sign earrings. Everyone else seemed to either clunk down the runway or was just too diva-esque. Barbie isn't a diva. High self-esteem, yes. Diva, no.
Watch the runway show below and tell me what you think. Also, sorry for the automatic start on the video. I couldn't figure out how to change it to manual start.
