Tribal Dancing

Yesterday, I actually had a chance to walk through Yorkdale, without feeling rushed, or like I was short on time. I went into Artizia and saw this coat that had the most interesting print on it. When I was back home in Vancouver, my mother infused this love of Native Art in me (it’s her newest obsession), and…it stuck. I was also looking on – the style section, naturally – and came across celebs that were wearing this very same print. It’s called Navajo Prints. Love the look. It’s comfy and not overstated. It’s one of those things that really speaks true to the phrase – fashion is art. The Missoni Spring 2011 collection kind of has that native look about it. Lots and lots of really bright, vibrant, ethnic prints. Makes me want to infuse more colour into my wardrobe.
