[ gingerbread men ]

I realize that I’m making this post a little late but I’m sticking by that old ‘better late then never’ cliche. If I had to single out my favourite part of today’s look it would be my ‘gingerbread men’ necklace that I bought on my last vacation in Cuba. Admittedly, from a craftsmanship perspective, there isn’t much to it but I think it embodies that Cuban warmth and charm that is so inherent in their culture. I love this necklace for the very reason others might have passed it by – its primitiveness or even immaturity. It may be simple in appearance but it’s loaded with vibrancy. I think its colour emanates with such intensity and festivity.

What I’m wearing:

  • Zipper pants by “Stella McCartney”
  • Chiffon blouse by “YA-YA Aflalo”
  • Leather pumps by “Guillaume Hinfray”
  • Reversible cloth bag by “Xpat”
  • Handmade necklace with clay gingerbread men (from Cuba)

  1. Love the necklace. I also collect primative pieces like this from locals of exotic places I visit. Just the memory of the trip it brings everytime you wear it is worth it. The sheer blouse is so romantic.

    1. Thank you so much Ghazal. I will try to incorporate some of that stuff into the posts. There are some amazing make-up tutorials available online (youtube for example) from professional make-up artists. I’m not as comfortable with that as general fashion stuff but I can definitely talk about different skin care tips I have and the steps i take in my own make up application routine. That’s a good idea, thanx 🙂
