Frida dark and light

The new Vinyl Cafe group gift is the Kahlo dress inspired by Ms. Frida, who has to be one of the world’s favourite artists (judging by the long lines that form outside museums exhibiting her work)(making it impossible to see other, less popular shows). Frida Kahlo lived a difficult life and frequently painted self-portraits that featured her extraordinary wardrobe and signs of great suffering. A man once sent me a postcard of Kahlo’s painting of herself as a wounded deer and wrote “This reminded me of you.” That was the end of that relationship. I don’t run around with bloody arrows sticking out of my flanks. They would clash with my floufy pink gingham sundress. (The arrows are symbolic, I know, but just barely. /me shakes a fist at all Surrealists)

Ahem. Doing Frida meant layers and flowers and birds, but once I had done up the Vinyl Cafe outfit, it felt much too dark. So I am also offering you a litebrite Frida wearing a decidedly yellow blouse, the current subo gift from Indie Rose. (You know I’m working hard for you when you see yellow. /me shudders)

If anyone is going to ride the Drama Llama, it’s Frida Kahlo.
