We’ve been invited to a party to celebrate Mexico’s Bicentennial.

It’s a Costume Party –
We were instructed –
… Come dressed as anyone
I am drawn to Maria de la Concepción Josefa Ortiz Magón de Domínguez.
Doña Josefa developed an early sympathy for the Amerindian, mestizo and the criollo community who were oppressed by the Spanish colonial government. Amerindian people were oppressed; mestizos and criollos were often seen as second-class citizens and were relegated to secondary roles in the administration of the colony.
But GEESH, how do you pull off this look????
