I ' M B A C K ! ! ! ... again... Sorry I've been so MIA lately- my pregnancy and our move really got me out of whack! Let's see, what's happened since we last spoke? Well... I'm now 19 weeks pregnant (almost half way, WOAH!), I had a horrible ear infection that kept me away from the world for about 2 weeks, and I've moved from my sweet, beloved newlywed home in Atlanta to Monroe, GA! We love it here already... which isn't a surprise considering that Andrew grew up here and I feel like I did since my Grandfather, aunts, uncles and cousins all live here as well. It's been fun catching up with old friends and getting settled into our new home. We have both been very busy with a new Your Pie location underway (Covington, GA), the first birthday of Your Pie Snellville, the start of a brand new business (come back tomorrow to learn more!), and lots and lots of painting! But I'm back now and plan to be until the arrival of the little one (or Baby Willie as we like to call it!). I've had fun planning the nursery in my head and can't wait to get started piecing it all together. There's so much to be done!
But enough about me and onto the subject at hand :: this week's fashion crush! Mi Golondrina is a small clothing line based in Dallas, TX. The owner, Christina Lynch, has Mexican blood and is proud to share it with fashionistas around the world. Her clothing line consists of dresses, separates, and jewelry all handmade in Oaxaca. The embroidery is out of this world! She hires embroiderers and seamstresses from small Mexican villages who thrive on keeping their culture and heritage alive. Christina says that these women and the beautiful garments they so lovingly create inspire her to keep them "working and proud".
I love the bold, vibrant colors of traditional Mexican clothing, don't you? Did you know that historically, Mexican brides wore dresses with this gorgeous embroidery on their wedding day? I love the thought of a bright, colorful traditional Mexian wedding!
Mi Golondrina also offers baby clothing. I can't get over this picture. OMG.
I'm so happy to be writing again, it feels good to see my thoughts in type!
