Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's Home!

We are in Mexico City, hanging with the Grazia Mexico team! They are so awesome! We did a conference this morning at Ibero University, all about our blogging experience and chatted to the students about our blogging secrets. It was such a blast:) Later in afternoon we headed to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's home. the It was such a magical and inspiring visit! When we stepped in to Frida and Diego's blue painted loft, you could feel their creative energy surging through it. Their art was in a separate building, and it was the kind of art you only dream about seeing in person. The dinning room was filled with paper mache creatures and hand painted plates. Diego's bedroom was right off their dinning room and had his iconic denim painted overalls hanging. Their kitchen had both of their names, along with doves on the wall.. made out of tiny teacups. Frida had a day bedroom and a night bedroom, because she was in a wheel chair from her Polio and her car accident. Her bedroom had a big cabinet filled to the max of all of her favorite things, like skulls and hand made miniatures. The coolest was her studio! You could see all of her paints just sitting there in a box. It was such a special exhibit and what made it even cooler, was that Vogue curated an exhibit right next to her house of her clothing. Her headdress, nail polish, corsets and her eccentric outfits were all there! It was a truly breathtaking house!  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-6_zpsd96f1079.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-37_zps15dae822.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-2_zps63f00499.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-3_zpsd6f27a32.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-1_zps0ffc017b.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-15_zps984b246e.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-5_zpsc5598faa.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-14_zps633f6d0a.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-13_zps4fb0a70f.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-012_zpsb17d100d.jpg  photo 111_zps1e64714e.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-010_zps25bfe09f.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-9_zps42c8e3f8.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-8_zps6c25204e.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-7_zps9bd12446.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-16_zps7becf659.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-17_zps363c61d0.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-36_zps757de2e3.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-19_zps0d11665a.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-20_zps2550bce1.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-21_zps371b7c6b.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-23_zps176cf734.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-24_zpsa19f4b93.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-25_zpsfdf09237.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-26_zps5fac0aa6.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-27_zps9e967a9e.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-28_zpsd4e16f23.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-4_zps4e186d41.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-30_zps515ffff3.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-31_zps562b7b71.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-33_zps449e9791.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-34_zps31f8b72c.jpg  photo fridakahlo-diegorivera-mexican-beckermanblog-fridashouse-35_zps0c103c90.jpg  photo 222_zpsa1d74ea9.jpg Pin It Now!

Reebok x Melody Ehsani Shoes

We love these neon yellow constellation Reebok Classics designed by Melody Ehsani! They are so cool because they have a unique pattern of 12 zodiac constellations and have hand drawn stars all over them. We are obsessed with how they actually glow in the dark! The idea and inspiration behind the shoes is finding your own path in life, looking to the sky and having the universe guide your step. The shoes also have a starry white lock hardware on them with a special handwritten message in the interior of the shoes from Melody. We are all about a neon Classic Reebok pump cause they look amazing with everything, especially running around town! Check them out at www.reebok.com

Chanel Couture Preview

We had the honour of viewing the Chanel Couture Collection! It was so exquisite it took our breath away. The craftsmanship and beauty of each piece is so overwhelming and intricate, that once again Karl has outdone himself! He is the Godfather of Couture! The collection was inspired by Le Courbusier who was an architect who is known for his use of concrete in his modern type designs. Karl took it one step further and made handmade concrete beads. He incorporated them in dresses and vests over dresses. They are all hand sewn together with such precision, that they become mini tiles and serve as a super light weight fabrication on the dresses. The fabrics were the coolest part of the collection. He incorporated white neoprene in to the dresses, which had a twist to them. The neoprene was molded instead of seamed together. This is unbelievable..because basically they are all hand molded to keep their form, and sewn with gorgeous baroque jewels all over it. The collection was also inspired by the elements, like fire. He made fitted plastic lace like dresses and mixed it with fiery tweed jackets. This collection was so gorgeous and the best part was that Karl put all the looks with flats with big bows... we can't get enough of Chanel Couture!
