I paint myself because I am so often alone and because I am the subject I know best.

Helsinki, 15 degrees

I've been happy to notice that the New York Fashion Week doesn't only offer glam, glitter and bling bling, but also folk art inspired clothing. Nonoo's spring/summer 2013 collection shows outfits that remind me of Frida Kahlo with their bright colors and headbands. I think one can see a resemblance between Frida Kahlo's thoughts about painting herself and everyday fashion. After all, don't we all want to show our personality outwards? Aren't we all painting ourselves with the clothing we choose to wear?

Florence and the Machine was inspired by Frida Kahlo as well and titled a song after a painting by her called What The Water Gave Me.

 



Do you try to potray your personality through your clothing choices - how?

Happy Friday!

  4. hey, Elisabeth!
    oh I just love those beautiful yet pretty simple ensembles. so many lovely colours, great shapes and cute details. I would love to own SO many of those pieces! but when it comes to your question I'm not sure.. maybe sometimes I do that. for example when I'm happy I wear something colourful and bold but when I'm not in a very good mood I can wear something quite random.
    and when it comes to insect pattern I don't have one certain favourite like you do. I can wear almost everything from butterflies to spiders.
