Dream Trip: Mexico City

HH

Hey Hart Beat! How’s your week going so far? It’s been a busy time this week and I don’t have a ton to write to you this week. Lo siento. I hope you won’t hate me forever, Hart Beat. Today I was to share with you some photos that I’ve been swooning over for a while.

One of my best friends Marina (who I met when studying abroad in Spain, FIJAOS), was lucky enough this summer to take a trip down to Mexico City with her dad. Marina’s dad is an architect and Marina herself works at an art gallery in New York so between the two of them, they knew the right beautiful places to visit. I asked Marina if I could share some of her photos on the blog here and, lucky you, she said yes!

I’ve traveled a few times to Mexico but all the times I went was way back in history when I was still in high school. I haven’t been back to the country in a while and now that I’m seeing these photos and hearing Marina’s rave reviews of the food, culture and pace of life I now know the next place I want to go. So Hart Beat, enjoy these beautiful photos this Thursday afternoon and give Marina a huge THANKS across the internets.

P.S. Marina visited Portugal a few years ago and shared them here on the blog as well!

VOZ Spring and Summer Collection

Hey Hart Beat. I know that it’s freezing out this week (holla at ya winter) but I still think we should dream about summer days and warm weather together. If only for kicks. Anyway, recently I had the pleasure of meeting the women behind the amazing fashion start-up VOZ.

VOZ celebrates cultural tradition through design innovation. Through collaborative workshops, we provide training in design innovation to skilled rural weavers, beginning with Mapuche communities in Southern Chile. VOZ international designers work intimately with artisans to envision, prototype and finalize our fair trade fashion collections. VOZ’ hand-made garments give a new voice to artisans by bridging centuries of their exquisite craft traditions to modern fashion platforms.

Beautiful, right? It’s everything I’ve always imagined in a fashion company. VOZ has an immaculate Fall/Winter 2013 line on their website but bellow are a few of my favorite pieces for Spring/Summer 2014. What’s even better than all this? VOZ sells online here and this weekend they’re having a trunk show in the city. See you there, Hart Beat!

All the beautiful original pieces can be found on the VOZ website.
