Antik Batik black fringed tunic and Alice & Olivia silk pants
A vintage Navajo turquoise and sterling silver bow guard in on my right wrist and Navajo bracelets on the left. A closer view of the Kachina pendants, too.
In the center of the radiating sun design of this caftan is a Kachina. It is that of a woman. Above the female Kachina is the male. I like to think of them as Frida and Diego caught in the lightening flashes and the sun’s rays.
Capturing the vibrant colors of Frida’s vision in a strong, clear reds. The red color of the lace top stands out against the black silk wide leg pants. Coral accessories are added to punctuate and carry through the red color throughout the outfit. Red lip color ….of course!
