Living at Grandma’s

October 4, 2009

Boy, oh boy…the things I’ve seen. In the midst of a political crisis and the most outrageous Human Rights violations I have ever seen (seen, as in I’m saying it not because I read it in the newspaper, or because I was brainwashed into believing so) it’s been difficult trying to blog without rambling about the aforementioned. I’ll try. I moved into my grandma’s place! Been living here for about a month now. Not relevant for this “fashion” blog?? Wrong! More than relevant…just wait!

vintage-corset-outfitYSL hot pink lipstick. Vintage handbag and suitcase. $3.00 Earrings from mall stand.

My bedroom is incredible: aqua walls covered in religious art, furniture twice my age, wooden floors so old there’s heel punctures all over. Punctures are my fault, of course. I wake up as in a Virgin Suicide’s set and therefore dress as so. Been wearing plenty of frills, my cream vintage ankle booties and nightgowns for day.


Thrifted belt, corset and high-waisted shorts I fixed up.

However, don’t think it’s all been rainbows and unicorns. It’s quite the challenge dressing up and expecting to get granny’s approval when it comes to what I wear! It bothers her that I wear hats around the house, she’s pulled my hem down more than once and makes remarks like the following: “Oh dear, I’m sure you didn’t actually mean to wear yellow earrings with that“.

Dont’ get me wrong, I’m not complaining! I looove it when she judges me and I admit to changing my outfits more than once just to make my ol’ lady happy.

 I had also mentioned how I was finally able to get a workplace for sewing and it happens to be in a building a few houses away from grandma’s house, so she occasionally visits and brings delicious pastries with her. YUM. As for my plans, I’ve been sketching, testing a couple of tailors, working on dresses myself…I have plenty of ideas, but I’m not exactly sure where I’m going to be honest. I like clothes, I’m going to makes them. Perhaps sell them. I’m completely okay with having a little bit of suspense in life. We’ll see…keep posted!

EDIT: Honduras reached the World Cup! It’s quite the celebration outside. WOOHOOO!

    I’ve been trying to get some lowdown on nuestro pueblo querido, but it’s hard here, especially when CNN is being an ass.

    Anywho, love the vintage stuff…really cool. I’ve been to Utila…absolutely gorgeous!! Es mi rincón de paraiso. Good to see you’re blogging again. You were missed.

    Hola querida…
    qué está pasando en Honduras? Para ser sincera, hasta ahora no oí nada de eso, pero creo k eso se debe a ser muy concentrada a las cosas que pasan aquí en México y allá en mi patria Alemania. De todos modos estoy feliz de oír algo de tí, me encanta tu estílo, tus fotos, como esribes…
    Que te vaya muy bien!!

    Hi Fabi!

    Thanks for leaving a comment on my fashion blog! The first one ever from Honduras. How exciting! I don’t know much about your country, so this all is very intriguing…

    Your poses and choices of apparel are very glam. I like the way you couple vintage with newer items:)

    I am so happy for you and you look sexy here girl!

    It’s your blog so feel free to blog about whatever is part of your life! It is a fashion blog but no one will mind if you inject some non-fashion into it.

    That’s what makes blogs like yours better than some of those other blogs out there were everyone is fake and never stops shopping.

    I love your adorable outfits above, especially the shorts paired with the hot pinkyred lips!
