Although I haven’t purchased too many things during my two months in Puerto Escondido, I found an adorable boutique in Zica where I spent a sufficient amount of money. Most of the selection was handmade, super detailed, and from Chiapas (a state in the south of Mexico). Here are some of the things I fell in love with and had to buy.
My new leather purse. This looks similar to a Gucci bag I saw (and wanted, obviously) in Vogue awhile ago. But I think $65 is more reasonable than $3,000.
My new wool backpack.

As soon as I saw this pillowcase, I knew I was going to buy it. Although it cost around $130 (the most expensive thing I’ve purchased while here), it is completely made by hand. I can’t wait to put it on my bed at home.

Love the middle of the pillow.
