the neon nine: frida kahlo paraphernalia

Anyone who knows me well (or follows me on Instagram) knows I have a slight obsession with Frida Kahlo. (#FridaFriday, anyone?!) This fascination began in college while I was abroad in Europe. The first stop on my trip to Brussels was an exhibition on the Mexican artist that featured many of her most beloved works. I was immediately drawn to the passion in her paintings and heart-wrenching, autobiographical stories behind them (a traumatic bus accident, a miscarriage, a turbulent relationship).

Frida, a proud Mexican, also included nods to her heritage in her work, including traditional Mexican garb and native flaura and fauna–elements you know I’m all about. In short, she was a fearless artist with a moving story and a killer sense of style, to boot.

It’s for all these reasons I’ve come to collect Frida paraphernalia (or rather, my friends continue to gift items featuring her likeness). Below, some items you’ll find in my collection plus a smattering of other pieces I’d love to add.

peace, love & neon,

  • Fun fact: Tel Aviv has bananas cool trim stores on a street called Nahalat Binyamin. 🙌🏼 My heart pretty much stopped when I saw this storefront covered in pom pom charms and trims! The few blocks closest to Shuk HaCarmel are literally lined in trim and fabric stores, so if you find yourself in Tel Aviv, you HAVE to make time to wander around these shops. So many fun crafty treasures!⠀
⠀
All the better if you can go on a Tuesday when the Nahalat Binyamin craft market is going on in the middle of the street. This classic craft fair features talented local artisans selling their wares! Head to our “ISRAEL” story highlights for more details and photos of some of the best shops I came across!⠀

  • Does anyone else like using the toe trick when making friendship bracelets?? I usually prefer to use a safety pin to secure the starting knot to my jeans or pajama pants, but on the beach bare toes work best! ⠀
⠀
I tie my loop 3” down, then when the bracelet is done, undo the knot, cut the loops at the top and braid the strands together and secure with a knot. Braid the other end of the bracelet as well and you’ll have a bracelet that can easily be taken on and off!⠀
⠀
Have you tried the loop-toe method?!! Share in the comments! 👣⠀

(Hope you enjoyed this intimate photo of my foot! 😜)⠀

  • There’s nothing better than shuk (market) treasures, amiright?! Loved these little 🧿 charms at Shuk Ha’Carmel in Tel Aviv! I ended up getting some larger glass ones for the walls of our apartment (head to my latest post @neonmarisa to see what they look like!) but hoping to find some more like this at the big shuk in Jerusalem. I can just a imagine a whole mess of them on a long chain or mixed in with other charms on a bracelet.
.
What market treasures have you found that you cherish?? And where did you find them??
