The Hunt [part.1]


Searching  for another piece for our wardrobes or accesories drawer is a complex task, it's kind of a hunt. In this hunt (beloved by fashion bloggers) we are limited by various aspects that only allow us to get hold of certain pieces, like our budgets, the stores located near ourselves or the ones we stop by during our trips. I mean, who doesn't like a leather bracelet by Hermès or Alexander McQueen, I guess most of us. Even though, there are pieces that may not have the iconic meaning or the maison's legacy behind, but instead have their own story and are ready to continue it with a new owner.

This hunt led me to Coyoacan last tuesday, one of the most charming places and a must-visit spot if you're visiting town. Coyoacan houses one of the biggest craft markets in Mexico (lucky me!). During my visit I could put my hands on various articles with lots of meanings and at very reasonable prices. And of course, to satiate one of my fixations, a pair of bracelets with skulls. Which one is your favorite?

Buscar una pieza más para nuestro guardarropa o cajón de accesorios es una tarea compleja, es una especie de cacería. En esta cacería (amada por los fashion bloggers) siempre nos encontramos con varios límites que nos permiten hacernos únicamente de ciertos accesorios, ya sea las tiendas que están a nuestro alcance,  el lugar donde vivimos o a los lugares que viajamos. A quién no le encantan los brazaletes de piel de Hermès o de Alexander McQueen, supongo que a casi todos. Aun así, existen piezas que aunque no tienen el significado icónico o la historia de la maison, tienen su propia historia y esperan continuarla con un nuevo dueño.

Ésta cacería me llevo el martes a Coyoacán, uno de los lugares mas encantadores y un must para todos los que visitan el DF. Coyoacán es casa de uno de los mercados artesanales mas típicos de México (que suerte para mí). En mi recorrido pude conseguir varias artesanías a precios muy accesibles y con varios significados. Y claro que para saciar una de mis fijaciones, un par de brazaletes con calaveras. ¿Cuál es tu favorito?
