Style Crimes

January 12, 2009

Key suggested I add “post on my blog more often” to my new year’s resolutions…but considering it’s already March and hot enough for snowballs down here I’m just going to add it to a random, rest of the year list of resolutions…it’s the job, I’m tellin’ ya!


I missed the obligated “It’s my birthday” post in December, the 2008 recap and the “Happy Valentine’s Day” post. I’ve always been bad with the whole traditions thing so who am I kidding?! I don’t feel that bad…but I do, however, hope everyone has had a great year so far! I personally started mine realising even more that I absolutely do NOT believe in fashion-related rules. There’s always an exception for anything, except for maybe clogs! I’ve been doing many things I once thought I NEVER would and I think it’s best best if I come clean! But please fellow bloggers, do have mercy on me!…Here’s the list:


Clogs vs. Paris Hilton Boots 


1.-Owning a pair of Paris Hilton boots! I didn’t buy them myself, they were a b-day present and yes, I am loving them! They’re purple and perfect and I wear them all the time! GUILTY!

2.-Leggings as pants. I’ve always considered them to be incredibly unflattering but shorts just added bulk under my thrifted tee. I’m hispanic and as a result have hispanic hips…so I’ll do with no bulk. Keep in mind, though, that my tee had the length of a short dress, so the bum was never exposed. That would’ve been disastrous!


 3.-And this one…I’ve been doing some online shopping, and not at Etsy. Instead? Forever21! Dont’ hate me, but I couldn’t resist that the HEATHER GREY T-SHIRTS ARE ONLY 5 DOLLARS! My paycheck is too tiny. And I can handwash. And then this hat…seriously, if I would’ve found this in my grandma’s closet I wouldn’t have had the need to…

mary-poppins-hatA boy at work calls me “merri popings” whenever I wear it.

4.- And last but not least…I was asked to model for both a local clothing commercial and a local jewelry shop’s ads. I agreed to it though I had no say in the clothes I wore. One of the dresses was a Diane Von Furstenberg knock-off and I’m not too keen on knock-offs (which is why #3 bothers me a bit). I just stood there and tried to look pretty! Hey, where else would a clumsy 5’2-er be asked to model?! Only in Honduras! For the jewelry ads they did agree to let me wear 2 of my own dresses (seen below). It was tons of fun, I admit.



Besides everything, I’m back in sewing school! We’re starting with the basics, and I already know most of the basics from my old school, but the teacher is nice enough to teach me some other stuff individually. Most of my classmates are 40+, super nice ladies!

Any style crimes you might want to come clean about?

  • Frock Around the Clock March 6, 2009 at 1:29 am

    I saw a Paris Hilton suit case and matching hat in Geneva airport last week and it was sooo trashy but those boots look really nice.. subtle! And you are completely right about the leggings as trousers thing.. I only noticed last week that they do not look hideous without something over the top.. hurrah! 🙂 x

  • Austere March 7, 2009 at 2:34 am

    much love from germany!

    Nice to see you back in action.

    The food looks divine.

    Well done on the modelling job, and clearly you must have been slaving at the normal job too!

    congratulations on the ad! it must have been fun!
    and that’s cool about the new sewing class. on a side note, that’s how rick owens got his start. he dropped out of art school and ended up going a trade school to learn pattern making.

  • Maya April 11, 2009 at 6:36 am

  • ccypop April 19, 2009 at 4:04 pm

    Fabi! I agree with key, you need to take over this thing! I love your blog, I discovered it a few months ago when you still had the original one, ahhhhhhhhhhh! it was a delight to read all of the posts in one sentada. Now this new blog it’s to esporadic, I, no, WE need more updates. Maybe you don’t remember, but I wrote you once from SPS to your gmail, I’m the guy that loves thrifting too, remember?

    Oh well, hope to read more of you soon. BTW don’t be ashamed of your P. Hiltons, work em! they are fierce in their own way. Now crocks, mnnnghh, that’s another story. Jaja 😉
