While I’m usually one to hit "unsubscribe" to every email list I find myself on, there’s one I actually look forward to opening every day… that of one of my favorite Dallas-based brands, Mi Golondrina!
Odds are you’ve heard me gush about this brand before. Each piece is beautifully hand-crafted by artisans in Mexico, and are simply magical. The stunning, vibrant, and unique color combinations truly take me away. Y’all know I love color, and there’s no short of it with these stunning pieces!
Over the past few years, I’ve found myself "collecting" Mi Golondrina pieces, if you can even say that about articles of clothing. They are definitely an investment, but one I feel really, really good about given the stunning craftsmanship. (And that’s saying a lot considering you know how much I love a bargain buy!)
So when I saw an email announcing the arrival of the stunning Gabriela blouse, with hand pulled lace detailing and gorgeous embroidered flowers, I couldn’t add it to my cart fast enough. And let me tell you, unboxing it late last week was even more of a thrill!
I will never forget, as a young girl, combing through the pieces of clothing my mother had saved from over the years. My personal favorite was always her gorgeous pink embroidered Mexican dress, so perhaps it makes sense that I’m drawn to that same artistry now. (Do you remember when I decorated my apartment bedroom in pink otomi?)
Even when puffy sleeves and exaggerated ruffles are no longer "in style", I look forward to this Mi Golondrina piece brightening up my closet for years to come.
I cannot recommend following the Mi Golondrina Instagram page enough! Christina, founder and visionary behind the line, always does an amazing job of showcasing new pieces on Instagram Stories, oftentimes the day before they launch. I feel like she’s always launching something new, and following along on Instagram has enabled me to stay in the loop!
P.S. I always get asked about sizing for Mi Golondrina. I would suggest ordering your usual size, but since the pieces are generally roomy and blousy, you have a little bit of flexibility to go up or down. For example, I own both x-small and small in a few different silhouettes, and really can’t tell that big of a difference. The Mi Golondrina team says if you have a bigger bust, however, it’s a good idea to go up one size. The team is always so helpful to reach out to if you need sizing help!
