Tradition

Fallas were finally burned Tuesday's midnight. But I couldn't avoid uploading this pictures, so you can really see what a fallera costume looks like. I think it's the other side of fashion, isn't it? Tradition and typical culture of each part of the world. I personally love to see how different fashion can be depending on where you go, and how each culture has its own way to see things which you can discover through fashion and what they wear.

So, this is my little input to this topic of traditional fashion and local costumes. I think the fallera dress is pretty overdone, basically because the skirt is full thanks to the petticoat we wear underneath (and super heavy because of the material it's done of), because we also put our hair into three buns (one on the back, and two on the sides over the ears. Ouch!) and well... You see: the dress has lots of colors, flowers, and fabric, and jewelry and so on...

It may seem uncomfortable as it's a very voluminous costume, but once you wear it and you get used to it, you walk downtown with your friends wearing the same costume, and you see lot's of people taking pictures of all the girls looking like this... Well, you know it's worth it, because you're helping other people to understand what you feel living here.

(During March, until the fallas finish, there're fireworks everyday on the City Hall square at 2 o'clock. We love noise and lights!)

  1. Well, I wouldn't wear something like that on a daily basis, but I bet it's fun to wear it when everybody is doing so. You look very beautiful in it, by the way. Like the daughter of a rich Spanish family from a long time ago...

    1. Haha, thanks for the comment! :)
      Actually, we don't wear it everyday and anywhere. We only wear this costume for special events during Fallas on parades with music and so on. And of course with other people looking like this with their typical dresses :D
