Mexican Embroidery and Vintage Wide Legs

Hi y'all!

I had an uneventful day off, most of it was spent sitting at my laptop doing homework, blah. I made a delicious dinner for my honey and cleaned the kitchen and living room, so I feel accomplished, but I still feel a little guilty that I didn't spend any time in my studio today as planned.

Oh, I also listed the tiki and parasol necklaces on etsy!

And here is my OOTD! I bought this embroidered shirt for $2 at an estate sale with my husband on Saturday. It was brown with age and had stains all over it. A bath in Oxyclean revealed a gorgeously hand embroidered bird and rose motif with silk thread. The fabric is actually from an old flour sack. What I thought was bleed from the thread is actually letters and numbers that were printed on the sack cloth.

I have a collection of hand embroidered vintage mexican shirts, but this is the best one. I'm gonna guess the lady who owned it got it as a souvenir in the '40's or '50's while visiting Mexico on vacation.

The jeans are high waist sailor style wide legs I picked up a while back at the vintage swap store I used to frequent before my New Years Resolution.
