"They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality." - Frida Kahlo
Frida Kahlo has long fascinated me. From the butterflies she painted on her full body cast after a horrific bus accident, to her passionate yet toxic relationship with artist Diego Rivera, to the elaborate floral headpieces -- and sometimes a monkey on her shoulder -- she wore to draw attention away from her disfigured legs, and of course her art which seem to allow her to transcend the constant pain, Kahlo possessed a remarkable ability to find beauty in the unimaginable.
3D roses in warm colors cover this twirly pink sundress. Strappy straps tie at center back for a perfect fit. And secret monkey fabric lines the bodice and adds side pockets. Frida is a girly showstopper!
AVAILABLE IN SIZES 12M-8. Expected to ship within 4 weeks. If you need it sooner please send a message.
Our Gracie dress is the perfect summery style. We love the clean lines, strappy back, and full twirly skirt. The fitted bodice, elastic waist, and adjustable straps make for a custom fit. While the dress falls naturally at the knee, you can tie the bow higher or lower for a different length. Pair with ballets or strappy sandals, or both! It is sweet, sassy, and fun. Gracie dresses run very true to size; view details here.
As with all Smockingbird pretties, Gracie dresses are handmade in small quantities with love in the USA. Extend their life by washing cold by hand and laying flat to dry.
