Dude, where's my period?

Check out this freak. Pregnant in heels? 

Planned Parenthood, Unplanned Parenthood. Let's state the facts. This is no mockery of pregnancy, I'm very into reproductive health awareness so I share with you this. Birth control and antibiotics don't mix. Therefore, I was concerned this month when my period was absent. There were a lot of other strange factors and the fact that I'm a hypochondriac when it comes to thinking I'm pregnant didn't help. Sure I had taken 2 tests at home, sure they had come out negative. But as a woman of color, I don't trust "the system" nor do I let "the man" keep me down. I have no idea what I'm talking about. My mom suggested I don't waste anymore of my money and that I head to the clinic take a test. She also added that she is a tax payer and that we should put to use the money that is taken out of her checks.

As she watched Jerry Springer in the waiting room, I skipped in to my appt. Busted out my planner and explained it all to male nurse X.

Oh yes, this is a fashion blog.

top- random store in Mexico
shorts- thrifted 99 cent day
shoes- Target
earrings- made by me
glasses- F-21
Car- VW Rabbit

The result was negative blah blah blah. I'm not going to lie, we all were pretty disappointed. Guess that answers the question, it's not BabyPhat, it's fat, baby. There was only one thing that could cheer me up...

Mormon Thrifting!!! 

Unfortunately, thrifting does not heal all...

Until my next pregnancy scare or pregnancy for reals,


  1. Girl you are real! Loving it haha. Good on you for going and nipping it in the bud though, better to be safe than sorry! :)

  2. Love your blog! :)

    Follow me if you like my blog and I'll follow you back! :)


  3. Sophia,
    para que quieres creias ahorita? dale mas tiempo al tiempo. yo ya estoy vieja y todavia le pienso pare tener un bebe. tu todavia estas joven.dale mas tiempo a tu relacions. Your Mama she is so cute, llorando.
    Si verdad, thrifting always helps me when I'm down.
    You look cute today amor, love your top and your daisy ducks.

  4. You make me laugh. I love your shorts, I want to go Mormon thrifting & congratulations on your non pregnancy.

  5. Oh.. I don't understand if u want a baby or not. But I wish that u have all the best from ur life!

  6. This post was hilarious!!! I also always thought I was pregnant. This last time was for reals. I knew something was wrong when those period cramps felt more like pulling my uterus out cramps and Tylenol 2000 did NOTHING for the pain!

  7. Girl, you are so real yet oh so funny! Cute shoes :)

  8. your mom and i could be great friends. i love jerry springer!

  9. Hahahahahaha oh this post made laugh the whole way.. Love it! Love Planned Parenthood and what they do, lets just hope you don't get any hate comments!

    All the best, Angel

  14. Totally just watched Juno! This isn't the biggest coincidence of life. But you know... pregancy and stuff. So yeahhh.

    Anyways. This post made me giggle. I love those photos of your mom - hilarious. Great sense of humor!!

  15. X-men was definitely better. I must say, I was a little disappointed with Cap'n Amerigo. There were some cool parts, but when you step back and think about it, the story was totally random.

    Tell the boyfriend to save his money and buy you some cute earrings instead. ;)


  16. Pregnancy scares are the worst! Hehe. Glad you made it out of this ordeal alive! Need to stay alive to thrift more! :D

  17. Funny post, I hope you'll be able to get pregnant soon!
    Follow each other? :)


  18. LOL, I have friends that are exactly the same way. Guess you better buy the Costco sized pregnancy tests...

    May I recommend a miraculous device called the Mirena IUD. I've had mine for 4 years, don't even really get a period anymore, and have had (knock on wood) not a single pregnancy scare. Ever.

    oh, and since this is a fashion blog, I have a crush on your dream catcher earrings. They be cool.


  19. Teehee, this post made me laugh! I love the photo of you standing outside the thrift store!
