Happy belated mother's day. Here, an aunt of mine with my new born cousin, both wearing traditional clothing for a vela (or 'tehuanada', a southern mexican traditional party from our home state, Oaxaca). Guayaberas for men, flowered and colorful huipiles and gold jewelry for women.

One of my cousins clothed with a traditional tehuana gown for a southern mexican traditional party: vela (also known as 'tehuanada'). Originated in my home state Oaxaca, it is one of the most colorful parties you can ever witness and be a part of.
