Bright Aztec Cardi + Giveaway!

I’ve been in a bit of a muted color rut. Black and grey have been staples lately, but then one of my favorite online boutiques, deloom, sent me this bright printed cardigan. It felt so nice to have a little color back in my life! I have been missing out! It may be the chilliest part of the year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t have a little Spring color in my wardrobe, right?

The moment it arrived in the mail, I put it on right over my pjs. And it’s pretty much been my favorite thing to wear the last couple of days!

    I’ve been learning about how for years, we, white people, have stolen prints and ideas from other cultures, especially from the Native Americans. Unfortunately, the word, Aztec, confirms this is true. This is called cultural appropriation. I would suggest to look it up online and check how we all can stop cultural appropriation, starting with clothing companies. I no longer buy Native American prints (as much as gorgeous they are) or prints from other cultures because I refuse to contribute to racism and cultural appropriation.

      Hi Annie! Thank you for your comment. I completely understand where you are coming from and thank you for sharing. We no longer use that term, and haven’t for quite some time. The cardigan is called The Frosty Cascades Cardigan. xo

        Hello,

        Glad to see that the term is no longer being used. However, the print is still being used. How about removing it altogether? Don’t allow your buyers buy it anymore.

      Hi Annie,
      Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this topic. As a Hispanic blogger who was born and grew up in Tucson, Arizona (in the heart of the Southwest), Native American art, history, and folklore have always been a part of my life as well as a great love of mine. I agree that there were atrocities done to Native Americans, but to me wearing Native American-inspired prints is a celebration of their contributions to our culture and a way to pay homage not misappropriation.

        I completely understand about appreciation of other cultures and their prints. If you want to appreciate and wear their prints, I would suggest and highly recommend for you to buy pieces from the Native Americans directly, rather than from corporations who profit from the money you give them. They do not give the money back to the reservations and to the people who created these beautiful patterns. Cultural appropriation is defined as “the use by cultural outsiders of a minority, oppressed culture’s symbols or other cultural elements”.

          Again, I appreciate your thoughts here, and I 100% understand what you are saying; however, I have a different opinion on the matter. I think we’ve said everything that can be said and will just have to respectfully disagree!
