What are you up to on this lovely day before Halloween? Hopefully planning a weekend of festivities, and this is sure to inspire. Pilar of Vintage Mingle teamed up with Beth Olson Creative to celebrate Frida Kahlo and Mexican culture while at the same time paying tribute to their Pacific Northwest setting. Annnd they totally nailed it.

Pilar tells it, We drew our inspiration from the eclectic beauty and individual style of artist Frida Kahlo and the Mexican traditions of Dia de los Muertos. We wanted to blend the subtle details of Latin cultural tradition with the Pacific Northwest as a backdrop.

So many Frida details in the fashion: Flowing skirts, printed metallics, chunky accessories, a dreamy braided hairstyle. And the suit? Diego Rivera-inspired, of course, with a tailored brown suit jacket + orange shirt.

Pilar says, The ofrenda (guest alter) reminds us to remember the lives of loved ones who have passed but are with us in spirit, blessing our ceremony from the afterlife. ”Our dead are never dead to us until we have forgotten them”; a befitting quote from Geroge Elliot adorns signage, created by Puddle Jumpin’ Cards, and serves as a sentimental reference to the Mexican holiday.

So many brilliant details! Thanks, everyone!

The bronze cake is stunning! I also really like the simplicity of the groom's outfit, the button up sweater hasn't looked better!
