Frida

One of my favorite artists and style icons is Frida Khalo. If you haven't seen Salma Hayek play her in the movie Frida you must check it out! Hers is a story of overcoming obstacles and making something truly beautiful out of whatever life hands you. She always dressed ahead of her time and continues to inspire me with her paintings and her chic style.xoxo
