Authentic Mexican Clothing
I Love Authentic Mexican Clothing
Hey there, my name is Adana and I’m 21 year old Mexican American that had never been in Mexico.
I speak Spanish but not as well as English and I have never been to a Mexican fiesta or experienced traditional Mexican Christmas. In fact I didn’t know about Mexican Christmas traditions until I read it here on your website.
Just the same, I had no idea how fascinating and rich Mexican history and culture is and how challenging life was in Mexico and still is in most of the country.
A side from many things I learned from you about Mexico and Mexican culture I have to say that one of my favorite is the authentic Mexican clothing.
Yes, I know, all of you will say that out of so many great things about Mexico I am fascinated by the clothes but traditional Mexican clothing is really something beautiful, unique, fun and most importantly it is very comfortable.
My favorite is the Mexican Peasant dress which has so many synonyms that I forgot but what I didn’t forget is the feeling when wearing this dress. In fact I have it on right now and first of all it feels so light as if I have nothing on.
Second, this beautiful and colorful embroidery makes me truly feel like a girl. Finally it is so practical, comfortable and beautiful at the same time, which is something I cannot say for any other piece of clothing I have, and I have lots of them (as any girl does).
Right now I’m looking to by some other authentic Mexican clothing because I am so into this Mexican peasant dress that I cannot wait to try more of traditional Mexican clothing.
I have to admit that I am ashamed I didn’t know so many things about Mexico since I am Mexican American, but living in Chicago is not as easy to keep in touch with Mexican culture as it is in the south of the country.
I know, it is no excuse and that is why I’m going to Mexico next summer but before I go I would like to ask you guys which parts of Mexico are safe to go to because I really would not like to be kidnapped (except by some hot Mexican guy). However, what I would really like is to meet some romantic Mexican guys, have Mariachi serenade me and buy a lot of Mexican clothes.
