La Mariposa x Kika Boutique Mexico: Harem Maxi Dress

You guys know I always love to buy items that come with a story, right? Well, say hello to my newest story. This red harem maxi dress is from an adorable boutique in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, called Kika. I’ve been to SMA about five times now, and every time I go, I shop, shop, shop. There’s a lot of local designers and unique pieces at good prices. Kika is one of those unique designers!

Ya saben que la ropa y bolsas que tengo siempre vienen con historias, verdad? Pues hoy les muestro mi nuevo vestido que tiene una historia padre. Lo compré en San Miguel de Allende en una tienda que se llama Kika. He visitado a la ciudad cinco veces, y siempre voy de compras allá porque está lleno de diseñadores y artistas. Kika es una marca y tienda muy moderna y única- su ropa es genial.

I’ve passed by and/or entered the Kika Boutique every time I’ve gone to SMA. I know exactly where to find it, and I always look forward to seeing the new stock. There are always unique and trendy items. This time, I was preoccupied with my black and white market bag (that I had just purchased), when I stumbled upon a mannequin wearing this dress. I loved it and did a triple-take- the students were cracking up! I then saw it in black on the store manager and was lusting hard. So our students encouraged me to try it on… which clearly led to me falling in love. I mean, how cool is the harem shape?!

He entrado la tienda de Kika cada vez que he visitado a SMA. Nunca había probado ni comprado ropa allá, pero siempre adoraba las piezas únicas y modernas. Pues caminaba por la esquina de tiendas en donde está ubicada y estaba admirando mi nueva bolsa negro y blanco. De repente vi este vestido en un maniquí y me enamoré. Después, la gerente de la tienda vino a hablar conmigo y estaba llevándolo en negro. ¡La quedaba súper bien! Me lo probé y ya saben que pasó después, no?

While I loved the black (and white) versions of this dress, I knew I needed red. I always love wearing red, and I had just been out with friends in this top and they all said “Red is your color!” so it was pretty much a done-deal. I’m glad I got the bold hue. Between the unique silhouette and gorgeous color, this dress is a statement piece!

Me gustaba este vestido en negro y blanco pero sabía que el rojo era muy especial. Mis amigos suelen decirme que es mi color, y me lo dijeron justo días antes de mi visita cuando llevé este mono rojo. Y ahora, al verlo, me encanta el color fuerte. Es una pieza súper llamativa y chida!

    Personally I’m not a big fan of this dress. The color looks great on you, the necklace is beautiful but the shape does not flatter you

      Thanks for your reply, Eva! I love the shape- it is definitely a unique one and I don’t think it is meant to be a body embracing fit, but I actually received loads of compliments wearing it. I love how it lay against my curves (though I love curvy hips since I am used to them so maybe that’s where we differ!)
