As you may know from what I told you on thursday’s post, yesterday (September 16th) and on the 16th’s eve we celebrate our Independence Day here in Mexico, and that inspired me to collaborate with a fellow Mexican blogger on a mutual guest post where we talked about fashion in the country, now, on that post I linked back to her blog, so you could see the pictures I took and read my answers to the questions we asked each other, but as the post was only in Spanish (sorry for that) I thought that maybe some of you wouldn’t know to click through to see the details of my outfit, so here it is.

Como sabrán, el día de ayer (16 de septiembre) y la víspera del mismo, celebramos el Día de la Independencia de México, y estar viviendo “el mes patrio” me inspiró a colaborar con una amiga blogger Mexicana escribiendo artículos simultaneos donde ambas dabamos nuestras opiniones sobre el mundo de la moda en el país, en ese post había un link a su blog, donde podías ver mis respuestas a las mismas preguntas y los detalles de mi look para ese día de noches mexicanas y el Grito de Independencia, pero en caso de que algunos de ustedes no entraran a ver su blog, les dejo aquí los detalles de el outfit que seleccioné.

Ever since I started fashion school, and especially when I took my Mexican Costume History class I started to really appreciate the hand made traditional mexican clothing, a few days ago I got this beautiful hand embroidered top from a friend, she got it in her town located in Oaxaca (UPDATE: some of you asked me here and over instagram about the top, you can get them by clicking here, she shipps internationally), and brought it home to me, I was absolutely in love with it, so I decided I’d incorporate it in my everyday wardrobe mixing this traditional Oaxacan piece with some more contemporary items such as skinnies and stilletos to keep it current, after all, we don’t want these traditions to die and get lost. So, what do you think? In case you missed it, you can click here to see how I wore the huipil my boyfriend got me earlier this year.

Desde que entré a la carrera de diseño de modas, y especialmente después de mi materia de Historia del Vestido Mexicano, comencé a apreciar aún más la ropa artesanal mexicana, hace algunos días me llegó ésta bellísima blusa bordada a mano, regalo de una amiga (ACTUALIZACIÓN: muchas de ustedes me preguntaron aquí y en instagram que dónde las conseguían, pueden hacerlo entrando aquí, hacen envíos a todo México e Internacionales), me la trajo de su pueblo en Oaxaca, quedé enamorada, así que decidí que se volvería una prenda regular en mi guardarropa, mezclándola con prendas más actuales, como los skinny jeans y los tacones como éstos, no queremos que éstas tradiciones se pierdan y mueran. ¿Qué opinas? ¿Lo usarías? En caso de que te lo hayas perdido, da click aquí para ver cómo usé el hermoso huipil Oaxaqueño que me regaló mi novio a principios de año.
