Mini Makeover | Astrid

December 14, 2009

Before anything, I want to thank everyone for such kind emails and comments, they really do make my day! I have to say, I’m definitely opened up for opportunities but in the meantime I’ll make the most out of the resources that are available to me. On to the minimakeover…

Marito is basically my brother from another mother. Our mothers went to college together and I’ve known him since he was a baby.

mario-fabi-outfitsScarf, tee & skirt: thrifted. Earrings: vintage, from grandma.

He spends an unhealthy amount of hours browsing through LookBook, has a crush on Blair Waldorf and doesn’t complain, like most boys do, when I say I need a new pair of shoes. We get along just fine! Anyway, Marito loves to bring his schoolmates, along with half their closets, over to my place so that I can give them ideas on how to dress for upcoming school events.

Astrid was our latest…victim?


A jeans and t-shirt kinda gal, she was so embarrassed at first when I suggested we take the pictures outside. You would understand, there’s all this car honking and yelling going on. My favorite? “Adonde dejaste el aviΓ³n, corazΓ³n?”, which translated would be, “Where’d you leave your plane, sweetheart?” Haha!


Dress: vintage.

I usually have a hard time convincing girls to wear some of the stuff I give them from my vintage collection…mostly items that very unfortunately don’t fit me, so I’ll usually just have to settle for their own wardrobe.

astrid-makeover-outfitLace dress: thrifted. White overalls & scarf: Astrid’s own. Belt: vintage.

Besides the clothes, I ironed her hair, smudged some eyeliner and VOILA! I say she looks darling! Let us know your thoughts on the comments below! πŸ™‚

    Aahhh you & Marito are fabulous & look so good! I love the green with your scarf; it`s a great pairing.

    Astrid looks awesome! I would kill to get a look at your vintage collection (although none of it would fit me!).

    Cheers! xo

    I can’t believe you are so willing to give away all your vintage lovelies! That’s insanely generous…! Gorgeous blog…the stuff you pick up vintage is all quite gorgeous…however whenever I trawl through charity shops and the likes all I can find are elasticated trousers! Gorgeous blog πŸ™‚
