Red Rock Señorita

During my month long stay in Arizona, I visited Sedona twice. My 2nd time around I did even more exploring. I enjoyed the Red Rocks and the incredible scenery even more, always making sure to look where I walked because of all the desert critters creeping around. A snake bite or scorpion sting was not on the “to-do”list for the weekend! With that said, I felt pretty adventurous and with a scenery like this I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go full on Señorita with this outfit I put together. This look is inspired by my Dominican roots, reminiscent of the 1930’s style of the young women who wore these outfits to parties and town festivals, celebrating the culture, which is a beautiful mixture of Spanish, African and Indigenous cultures. The pieces are from my favorite vintage shops in San Antonio. The top is from Montage, and the skirt is a re-purposed maxi skirt, redesigned as a hi-low skirt by Socorro Society. 

Durante mi estadía que duró un mes en Arizona, visité a Sedona dos veces. La segunda vez que fui, exploré un poco más. Disfruté de las famosas Piedras Rojas y del bello paisaje aún más, siempre asegurándome de mirar bien a mis alrededores y cuidarme de aquellos animalejos en el desierto que no son tan amigables. Una mordida de serpiente o picada de escorpión no estaba en agenda para el fin de semana! Con eso dicho, me sentí bastante aventurera y no pude perder la oportunidad de vestirme como jibarita con piezas que encontré en mis tiendas “vintage” favoritas en San Antonio.  Este look fue inspirado por mis raíces dominicanas. Inspirada en las jóvenes de la época de los 1930 que utilizaban este estilo de ropa para las fiestas y festivales en el pueblo, celebrando una cultura que es resultado de mezcla hermosa de España, Africa e Indígena. La blusa es de Montage y la falda es reconstruida para tener el efecto de corto y largo, de Socorro Society.
