Board #87 | Fiesta a la Frida

I’ve had this board sitting on my computer for a while now, and I thought, why not post it today? I love the idea of a wedding inspired by an icon, which often means a classic style icon like Grace Kelly. Instead, I wanted this board to be bright and unusual, like Frida herself.

Mood: vibrant, fiery
Palette: hot colors of all kinds

    I lived and worked in Mexico City for a summer doing volunteer work. This board captures all the color and energy of that exciting place.
