Shopping with L-atitude: The Colours of Mexico

Back in the fall when I was in Florida my mom scored this colourful Mexican tunic for me at a consignment store. Now, I’m not much for colour, but I love the hand embroidery of this piece of clothing. It’s bright and lovely and perfect for living under the sunshine. I later took it on a Caribbean cruise I took in February and I really just felt like I belonged on the Golden Girls. Let me tell you, though, this tunic is perfect for the beach and for roaming the streets of island towns.

A few weeks ago I happened upon L-atitude, an online market that sells fashionable treasures (including very high-end designer goods) from around the world. I love the offerings from Mexico, especially the embroidered tunics, of course!

    Thanks for this feature, they’re all wonderful! I especially like the stark white with one colour embroidery- very vibrant and easy to wear on a hot day. The blankets are great for picnics and beach days, too.
