Anyone who knows me knows that I love Frida Kahlo! Frida has intrigued me since I learned about her in my Chicano Studies class back in the early 90s.  I immediately connected with her story of strength, resilience, and creativity. Her paintings were a reflection of everything she had endured and continue to provide inspiration and strength for future generations.

From the paintings hanging on our home walls, to Frida dolls and children’s books about her, my daughters are growing up with Frida all around them. What a better way to celebrate Frida’s essence by creating her signature look floral headpiece for my two baby girls and me.
