Scissor, needles and threads oh my!

Well, I have a pair of boots that match the color of the concrete, lol. 
Taking pictures in my usual spots, with these on, is a no go.

The skirt I'm wearing is an old one I thrifted a while back (also worn HERE) . 
I used safety pins to make it into an asymmetrical crazy way. 
What do you think?

I'm the kind of person that is afraid of cutting and sewing the fabric and mess it up...  Safety pins help me create something without having to cut or sew. 
But no worries, on the other hand when it comes to repairing something, I'm not that afraid of the scissors, needles and threads. 
Trust me, I know my basics ;) 

Have a lovely weekend!

Dinner Party

 Chris and I after hanging our first mirror at our home :D

 Thanks Adrian for this last 2 pictures! :D

Two Saturdays ago Chris and I had some of our friends over for dinner at our home.
They got to try my Peruvian dish "Lomo Saltado" and it was a great success :D 
Seriously, nothing like fries and rice mixed with steak, It's just too good, and better with the company of friends :)

The house came together the day before the party. Once we got our new couch in the living room, the whole look of the house, changed. I also got to hang a few things on the walls including our first mirror (one of the pictures above). 
I'm seriously loving our house more and more.
Each day feels a lot like home <3

Mod 60's


Have you seen the movie Moonrise kingdom
Well, that's what this outfit reminded me of, when I wore it 2 weeks ago.

Fun fact: I'm wearing this dress backwards again :D

Do you love the fashion from the 60's? Personally the 1920's and 1960's are definitely my top 2 with a little from the 40's.

Which one is/are your favorites eras you like to incorporate into your wardrobe?

P.S. Click on the numbers bellow to see how I've worn this dress before! ;)

Pale for life

I sat in front of my computer with this pictures, complaining of how pale I am. 
You would think my skin has never seen sunlight.  
 -True story, when I was a kid, my dad would pinch both my cheeks to get some color on my face. lol -.-

I'm just one of those people that has tried tanning, ending up with a bad, bright red, sunburn. 
Even my scalp has got sunburned once. That was not fun. 
*side note: Just picture me brushing my hair then 0_o

Failing continuously to tan when I was in my teen years, led to finally giving up. Now all I do is sunscreen. 
Gotta take care of the skin, I guess, and that means pale for life.

To shorten a dress

If you've followed my blog for a while, you have seen this dress before.
 Yes, it's a little longer than pictured and no, I didn't cut it. 

my trick to shorten the dress?... safety pins and a hair tie :P
would you have been able to tell if I didn't mention it?

Here you can see the actual length of this dress :)

Learning to pace myself

Remember when I said I was over wearing this belt? lol, Can't get enough  of it!

This outfit is from 2 weeks ago when I went with Chris to get stuff to decorate the house, exchange stuff we didn't want and such. 
I'm trying to keep my sanity as I decorate the house.
I have way too many ideas and projects overwhelming my brain, with no time and not much money a week to get it all, lol. But little by little it can be done.
I just need to learn to pace myself.

In other news, we bought a couch!! psyched!!
I'm excited to finally get rid of that old, uncomfortable love seat, that is all :P

Olive you belt

I think I've been over wearing this belt to the point that in my mind it goes with everything. 
Maybe it does; I just love the shades of Olive green on it. 

Also, does anybody know where I can find olive green tights? I've been on the search without luck. 
Crossing fingers I do find some this year, and if so, I'll probably end up over wearing them just like this belt, lol.

Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Monday with a new post!

Brunch date

It's not often Chris has a free morning on Saturdays, usually he leaves for work around 7:30am.
Two Saturdays ago when he had to work later hours, instead of morning, I knew a breakfast (which ended up being a brunch) was taking place. 
We got to go to one of our favorites, First Watch. 
That place is the perfect breakfast/lunch place. And if you happen to go anytime soon, try their new strawberry mint cooler, Its the perfect summer drink. :P

He looks so cute ^^

On our way home it started raining, hence outfit pictures are inside instead of outside.
I spent the whole afternoon and evening in this outfit... Even though its cute, it's also very comfy. 
Little fun fact, The blouse is backwards lol!!! I knew that, when I bought it, but forgot all about it when I put it on. I guess you never think of the buttons being on the back, lol... but next time I'll wear it the right way... At least now I know I can wear it two ways! hehe.
