A Weekend in Havana.

I'm going to hold Carmen Miranda responsible for my fixation with Brazilian/Mexican/Spanish fillies. After all, Carmen was the Lady who introduced me to the world of dressing up. You see, I love a woman who can keep one entertained with an outfit without even having to open her mouth.

As I was adding the finishing flourishes to the days hairstyle, I found myself glancing over at the Pin Up I had stuck to my mirror. I studied the sequins stitched to the frills of her dress, the elaborate floral earrings and the roses that complimented her dark curls. I couldn't help but feel inspired to dress like a SeƱorita for the weekend.

Sequinned bull fighter circle skirt and green carved wedges. The perfect ensemble for sipping Margaritas on the patio. I'm in the mood for making Burritos....

I sewed pom poms onto my black gypsy style dress and wore loosely off my shoulder, clipped on earrings a flamenco dancer would be proud of and sat within the flowers.

A weekend in Havana was so very enjoyable, I shall return very soon!

Love as always, Lucille xx
