Orange you glad?

April 7, 2011

Down here everyone shops at the same fabric stores because we don’t have many to choose from.  As a result, real life “who wore it better” segments abound! In my case, however, curtains and handbags are the competition. Maybe it’s because of this lack of variety that I’m such a sucker for strange prints. Even before the fruity Prada collection, I was already going nuts (ermm, bananas) for fabrics that are traditionally used for curtains in little cafeterias. I didn’t lead myself into buying one until I found one with perfect colors: turquoise and orange!

Orange fruit fabric print

I made a simple skirt with two seams front and back so the oranges wouldn’t look so “literal”.

Another skirt I wore A LOT last year had a cool print of a less conventional fruit. I found a pumpkin & apple printed dress in a thrift store that was too small to fit, so I cut the bodice off to turn it into a skirt.

Turning dress to skirtAnd voilá!

Pumpkin fruit print fall skirt

Worn here with an 80s dress+thrifted choker and belt.

I don’t think my fascination for tablecloth-y fabrics will die anytime soon…expect to see more!

I’m currently taking the most efficient patternmaking classes I have EVAA taken and I’m sooo excited about sewing more complicated stuff without having to guess how to do things along the way.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Prada collection I mentioned above and think I’m insane and delusional and made it up, here’s the video campaign. Keep your eyes open for the bananas!  😉

P.S. Quick updeyt! I’m now writing a blog in Spanish, sponsored by a Honduran department store called Tiendas Carrion.  I’ve been sooo nervous + excited about it. I have lots more to say about why I decided to take on this project, but I will do so on my next post.

    Felicidades Bloggera:

    Soy @cabetomejia, el twittero, (esa es mi identidad secreta). Aunque no se mucho de modas, y considero que vestirme bien es andar la camisa por dentro y no repetir la misma muchas veces en la semana, se nota que sabes muy bien lo que estás haciendo, y te quiero felicitar por tu blog.

    Tu talento y tu manera cómica de escribir podrían hacer que leyera un blog sobre escarabajos tanzanianos; a mi me gusta escribir y leer cosas geniales, y tu estilo acaba de laminarse su propio carnet en esa categoría.

    Me imagino que te alegra trascender a nivel global con tu página, y eso me enorgullece por saber que hay gente genial en Honduras.

    I love the orange fruit fabric; the contrast of the colors is beautiful. The same goes for the pumpkin and apples outfit.

  • Reply Seraphina April 18, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    This is my favourite kind of clothing — really simple dressing that looks effortless, but still makes such a statement!

    And those prints are just divine… UH, heaven 😀

    Wonderful blog sweetie — really enjoying it.

    Hey fabi!!

    Paisana, que tal? I am now a peace corps volunteer in Paraguay (there are tons in Honduras, too bad I couldn’t be placed there) Anyway I should definitely learn how to sew, cuz I’ve been going to modistas, and they cost an arm and a leg. Luv the skirt!!

    The first thing that can be done to reduce moobs is do weight lifting exercises that really work your chest muscles.
    I would also remove all gluten containing foods including breads,
    pastas, cereal and snacks. Regardless, if the goal is
    usually to have a great time making the best of it you will definitely stick out and boost your potential
    for success.
