Back when I lived in Milan one day I went to school wearing a white shirt sort of Mexican looking (you know which one's I'm talking about) with big colorful flowers embroidered (YES, I know!!! Don't act like you haven't done it!!!). When I got there I bumped into my dear friend Emmanuelle, who instantly saw me and before she even said hi to me she said: YOU LOOK SOOOO...GUATEMALAN!!! It stuck with me forever. So today while I was thinking how to name this post I of course remembered Manu's very spontaneous salute. Some thing's you never forget.
So here's my YOU LOOK SO GUATEMALAN OUTFIT. Today we filmed a special edition of our morning show Matutino Express commemorating our independence day and for it I decided to wear my newly acquired güipil (güipil is an indian native blouse or dress) from Santiago Atitlán. It's actually vintage and a collectors piece. I love it!!!
The headpiece is also native but it's not from Santiago Atitlán. I'm embarrassed to admit I don't remember it's native region, sorry. Since the dress is actually very loose and boxy I decided to cinch my waist with my favorite Kenzo braided leather belt that I've had for almost 10 years, seriously I think I bought that belt at Kenzo in Milan in 2002. I plan on wearing it for another 10 years, if not more.
