Stone Cold Fox
I am not a shorts girl but these 70's inspired beauties make me wish that I was. Summer has just begun and I'm already bored with destroyed denim cutoffs. It's definitely refreshing to see something unique. Each pair of Margarita Shorts is handmade out of Mexican blanket fabric by California lady label Stone Cold Fox. They are being offered as a limited edition through the Free People website. My favs are the red Navajo print. They cost a pretty penny and only come in tiny sizes but in a world of sweat shops and mass production I feel it's important to support small indie labels and to splurge on handmade when you can.
Speaking of handmade, does anyone know where I can find thin Mexican Blanket fabric like this? I'd love to make a skirt out of it. The Mexican blankets I've seen for sale would be too bright and too thick. I love the muted vintage look of this stuff.
