I scoured my usual thrift shops for anything with a Mexican feel to it - not a difficult task, being in Texas and all - but nothing I tried on really struck my fancy. I didn't want to buy something just for this challenge and then never wear it again.
But then, I spotted this fantastic sisal and leather bag with a gorgeous pattern in the weave, and I decided to build an outfit around it. I'm terribly happy with my purchase, knowing I will definitely use this purse again and again.
Bag: $5 thrifted // NWT Cookie Johnson jeans: $7 thrifted // Ralph Lauren men's chambray shirt: $4 thrifted // Sandals: $5 Yerdle // Necklace: inherited from Granma // Earrings: $5 thrifted // Ring and bracelet: $?
