ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Cinco de Mayo
It’s not every day that you can wear a colorful poncho. But Cinco de Mayo is the perfect occasion. I bought this hand-embroidered piece last summer when I was in Guatemala for a wedding. Denim leggings and flat boots brought it from the local markets into the modern LA streets… Olvera Street to be exact. It’s a cool brick road downtown filled with Mexican eateries and little shops. You literally feel like you’re in another country. My friends and I had massive margaritas, enchiladas and quesadillas at El Paseo Inn, and then posed with a little pink-eared pup decked out in Mexican flag accessories. Obviously the dog reminded us that we were in LA, not Mexico.
