Behind the Scenes

Update: TV Show

September 23, 2008

But boy has it been QUITE the six months. See, the tv show has consumed half my time, half my energy and it has been almost almostย like selling my soul to the anti-fashion devil. I mean, what was I thinking?! If I wanted to be taken seriously as a “fashion consultant” in my town, I couldn’t go all Carrie Bradshaw on them!

It has been great for all the other stuff, though. The public speaking fear is almostย gone, I’m learning how to react to negative criticism…apparently, drowning in tears is not an option! Haha!ย The vintage clothing I was planning on selling hasn’t seen the light of day in the past months. Errr, except for a couple of items I couldn’t resist on keeping for myself.

thrift-findsSkirt and dress: stolen from the forbidden closet.

But the rest are sitting there, collecting dust.

Red clutch : also from the forbidden closet, couldn’t help it.

I’m learning to organise my time, and I’m hoping it’s okay that my style has become a bit more I’m going to say sophisticated rather than boring than the usual, even if it’s somewhat obligated.

Carolina (the other t.v. presenter), is a class away from graduating and becoming an architect. She doesn’t think my fashion day dreams are nonsense, she likes my slutty shoes and bags that smell like the 80s and never pressures me to get a french manicure instead of my usual dark colors. We’re mucho close.

News! We had our first ever Honduran Fashion Week! I thought it would be a reeally good thing, but like most artistic events in our country, the hype ended the same day it begun. So all there’s left are a few pictures on people’s Facebook.

It feels good to blog again, and it feels so good to read such nice comments. Even better than finding the perfect pair of trousers. Thank you everyone!
P.S. Please excuse the blurry photographs. My photographer is only 9.

    Even though your posts come after long periods of time, it’s always great to read whatever you have to say. I like your bags very much, although I would have difficulty stuffing all my girly junk into them. You 9 year old phtotgrapher good do worse. When I was 9 I didn’t know which way up a camera went!

  • chicadedios25 November 30, 2008 at 10:10 pm

    I like the new sophistication-but you give it a Fabi twist.

    Nothing wrong with being like Carrie Bradshaw- she is the most famous woman in the US at the moment.

    The movie is so great! Not what I expected but great none the less.

    I wish you the best of luck in everything.
