oaxacan style

We were just in Oaxaca for the 2009 Guelaguetza
and I have millions of photographs displaying the incredible handworked and varied regional costumes of Oaxaca for view front and center during the festival, but my favorites of the bunch, tended towards the more timeless and wearable, things I’d be able to use on a daily basis, such as the traditional huaraches, I saw many variations on these, one lady even had them in black patent leather, others wore fantastical colored skirts with rick rack, lace and embroidery, men in straw fedoras with a black ribbon and others carried colorful practical straw satchels.
