^the herrera bio is fab. just finished reading.
frida so much. her tehuana dresses and amazing jewellery come back to my mind ever and ever again. here is a pic showing her original diary: tagebuch2.jpg

plus: i found one of my favourite frida drawings on the net (courtesy of www.latinamericanstudies.org)
. hooray! she portraied herself wearing the little "hand" earring which was a big inspiration for me. the way she's wearing a single, iconic piece here... i copied that style
here it is. she did the drawing in 1946: kahlo-1946.jpg
