Viva La Frida: 10 Frida Kahlo Inspired Goodies Everyone Needs
I've made it no secret that I love the work of Frida Kahlo. I've been enamored with the thick-browed lady in the paintings since I first saw them at my favorite restaurant growing up. Perhaps it's just me but recently I have started noticing her work and face sneaking into more and more of my favorite brands. I picked up a child's book on self-acceptance recently and she was the role model for the book because she was/is beautiful and kick ass. After seeing the umpteenth Frida item I could really splurge on, I figured it was time to actually put it all together because seriously, Viva La Frida!
FRIDA KAHLO SOCKS BY THE SOCK DRAWER - $7.50
If you're like me, you get cold a lot. Especially up here in Seattle where the sun don't shine (most of the winter time). I've been known to put socks on top of socks to keep cozy, and these are calling my name. Check them out at The Sock Drawer here.
FRIDA KAHLO TASSEL NECKLACE BY SOUTACHERIE - $35.00
I can not get over how beautiful this necklace is. Like I want it. Can you wait here while I call my boyfriend to make sure its ok that I splurge on everything in Soutacherie's shop?? You can visit Soutacherie's Etsy store here.
LEATHER FRIDA COIN PURSE FROM PLASTICLAND - $22.00
Are you like me and have a purse that is an extra 10 pounds because the bottom is lined with your loose change and even though royalty isn't supposed to jingle, what can I say? I live on the edge. This little leather coin purse is a deal on Plasticlands store.
FRIDA DREAMIN' PJ BOTTOMS BY THE CATS PAJAMAS - $52.00
Frida + Sugar Skulls * Sugar Skull Frida = Simple math. 100% cotton jammies to keep you warm with your Frida socks and you are STYLIN'. You can find these cuties on Amazon here.
FLORAL & FRIDA SILK SCARF BY SILKYTALE - $74.00
I can't help it. This is just beautiful to me. The contrast of Frida's dark face and the saturated colors speaks to me and my heart and my wallet's heart. It doesn't help that I am a sucker for silk but hey, what are you gonna do? Sophie be Sophie. And Frida be Frida...on a scarf from Silkytale Etsy store.
PAINT ME A PICTURE DUVET COVER SET BY KARMA LIVING - $119.99
This was one of the items where I called my boyfriend out of work because I had an emergency. The emergency was "I want this." I wanted to buy this duvet set but being that I share a bed and room and house and life with another human being, it was only respectful that I called to make sure he was cool with it. I live and love a very tech-savvy, modern, geeky man who looked at the slumber set and politely said "umm..it's a little busier than I'd like." Grant translation "Don't you f*cking dare make me sleep under all that bright color." I said I loved him, I didn't say he was perfect. For those who do dare to sleep under all of that amazing, fabulous color, go check out Modcloth's site now!!!
HANDSY WITH FRIDA EARRINGS BY ADRIANASOTO - $20.80
If you're a fan and familiar with Frida's portraits then you know that woman knew how to rock some really rad jewelry. I think I read something, somewhere, sometime that a majority of her jewelry went missing the night after she passed away but if you know Frida, then you know she loved jewelry and exotic jewelry. These hand earrings are inspired by her Self Portrait, Dedicated to Dr. Eloesser painting and are available in Adrianasoto Etsy store.
FRIDA PORTRAIT BIKER TANK BY DEVINEPAINTINGS - $28.OO
Society6 is one of those great websites that lets me discover amazingly talented artists and support their efforts by purchasing their wearables.

Divinepainting's style is so feminine and soft, I think it adds such a lovely and different dimension then how I am used to seeing Frida portrayed. And I am happy to say, for me, this is a must have.
