Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

May the fifth is Cinco de Mayo, which means it’s time to get together with friends, share a round of tequila shots and party! Contrary to popular belief, the holiday is mostly celebrated in the United States, to commemorate the battle of Puebla exactly 150 years ago.

I’m wearing a dress from American Apparel (I guess fittingly, considering the company is an advocate for helping Mexican immigrants find jobs in their factory in LA), jewellery from Forever XXI, and a pouch made in Mexico. The sombrero is just a souvenir.

I love these wrapper pouches. They are so kitschy and eclectic. My silver sombrero ring was just par for the course. I took these photos last December when I went to Puerto Morelos, Mexico.

I loved the reflection ponds of the hotel I stayed at. I miss the sun of Mexico, and of course, the tequila!
