Frida Kahlo, Mexican Painter and O.G. Parlourista

If you think Kid Cudi and his liquid cocaine struggles are emo, meet Mexcian artist-cum-international diva Frida Kahlo. She was so tortured by her talent, often stifled by her chronic illness, and her love for ladies man and fellow painter Diego Rivera that she basically painted her heart out. Literally (see above).

Today is the late Frida’s birthday and we here at Parlour would like to raise a glass of good tequila in her honor. Quirky creatives UNITE!

Not familiar with Ms. Kahlo? Read up on her here, rent this movie and plot how you can talk your significant other into copping side-by-side houses so you can escape when he/she doesn’t wash the dishes AGAIN.
