Meena - NEW STORE Making Afghanistan Bohemian Inspired Clothing..

This amazing shawl and waist sash are just two items of many available at a new store called 'Meena'.  An off-shoot of BoHo HoBo, designer Trill Zapatero, describes her clothing designs for Meena as 'Afghanistan Bohemian', a hybrid of tradition Afghan and western clothing.  The richness of the textures and the vivid patterns and colors make these clothing items pop.  Check out the Meena vendor poster.

As I have said before and totally stand by, Trill makes AMAZING clothing that always work on my avatar.  In my opinion you won't get better quality for the absolutely reasonable prices she charges.

As you can see, the mix 'n' match versatility of these pieces provides a stunning fusion of east meets west.  Using the waist sash and shawl as my inspiration, I chose to wear only a sleek hair base from Cashmere to elongate the neck to take the shawl. 

I found this cable knit body suit in 'ember glow' from The Secret Store and then came upon the pencil skirt in 'quarry' that I thought would bring out the blue hues.  I opted for a strong makeup from my Claudia 2 fat pack from LAQ and wore an earthy earring and bracelet set called Adele from Indyra Originals.

You simply must check out the bags at Bare Rose.  I'm so impressed with them and they are better in the flesh than the pictures. This bag is called 'Bellissima' in wine but there's so many fab styles to choose from.  The quality totally surprised me. On my right hand (camera) is a great bracelet from Miel called Chum.  Maitreya Gold Allure shoes n socks finish me off and I'm ready to spread some color wherever I go.

Do drop by Meena and pick up something to make you happy while at the same time, all proceeds from this store go RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan.
