It has been a while since our last feature on Boho Hobo and much has happened there worth noting. Trill Zapatero has expanded her line and opened a branch shop called Meena, specializing in the native designs of Afghanistan. This is a must visit mountain top setting where you’ll find a extensive and exciting selection of Afghanistan Bohemian themed clothing and jewelry. I strongly recommend the Magic Carpet Ride for a storybook tour of the landscape. If not the Magic Carpet then maybe the Indian will have you humming a little Steppenwolf?
I simply could not resist the colorful new Kuchi skirts and paired my favorite one with one of Trill’s yummy little silk tank tops from the main Boho Hobo shop, a really perfect compliment to these skirts. Oh don’t dare forget the cleverly, and appropriately named Shlumpy Hat. What a fun chapeau – perfect for those casual yet frivolous days when you just must have that one feel-good-about-life-in-general look.
There are so many unique and beautiful things at Meena. Check out the selection of ponchos for sure and the rich array of finely detailed Jewelry, also from Afghanistan. These pixel creations emulate the styles of ethnic tribal metalworkers from all corners of Afghanistan; from the Kuchi nomads of the south to the Tekke Turkomen of the northern highlands. Paste glass inlays, twisted metal, coins, carnelians and lapisand engraved and carved designs are some of the features of these designs. I found that the Yakata set I am wearing with the poncho also works very well for more formal looks.
I did a bit of a mix and match under my Big Floppy Hat (gotta love Trill’s apropos names for stuff 🙂 to show the Nikoo bangles and the Delaram Dangly Bell Pendant. Both of these items have their own matching pieces including earrings, necklace and bracelets.
One could run up and down the mountain between these shops all day, and Trill has thoughtfully provided a teleporter to make it easy. On one of the treks i discovered this amazing leather jacket with simply awesome texture and detail. I suprised more than a few friends when i put together this outfit including Boho’s faded bell-bottom jeans and another silk top and ran off to The Crossroads for some on-location shooting amidst SL’s most difinitive collection of vintage motor bikes. Even if you are not attracted to these amazing machines, you will find the stream of live blues music there well worth a visit!
