New In Shop

After a hot, pregnant, summer it was time to get Maricela back in my attic to model some winter wear. Oh how I love exploiting her beauty and figure for my own personal gain. She does not mind because she is my friend, uh right Maricela? Most of the pics feature her with an open mouth mid-joke or wise crack cause that's just how funny we are IRL. We joked that we should have our baby daddy(s) up in the loft with us to write down all our funny jokes. What I can remember of her jokes I use as selling points; furthermore exploiting her on an intellectual property level. "Let the Hunger Games begin!" -Maricela on wearing blazer below that has already sold BTW. That's how good she is.

Sell it girlfriend. Sold.

Black and gold cape. 

Why this photo isnt cropped IDK. Leopard jumpsuit.

 70's floral jumpsuit with inverted pleats.

Black and gold sequin dress just in time for the holidays. I wore it for Thanksgiving last year. 

Chinese inspired number.

80's turquoise blazer

Oversized Southwest boyfriend blazer

Saks Fifth Avenue silk jacket

Tribal print hammer pants

3 tiered ruffly peplumy number

Handmade Guatemalan jacket

Gorgeous vintage knit cape

Mint condition black and white vertical striped dress (prob my fave)

Neon knit sweater from Mervyns of California (RIP, they closed a few years ago).

 "I wore this to my 6th grade graduation" dress

Rhinestone cowgirl romper

Vintage embroidered sweater

I had cut these jeans into shorts but I decided to keep them being as they are a part of my go-to color scheme- black, white, red.
Things took a very grunge turn at the end and we headed outside as we played dress up. Still debating if I should put the Docs in the store, I don't officially know what size they are but she says they fit her and she is an 8.5.

All in a days work, and then multiple days after editing, measuring, and listing. But it's my idea of fun.

  12. GIRL! How are you? I feel like I haven't commented on here in forever. Maricela is hella pretty. That black and gold cape she's wearing reminds me of my French Connection skirt. And how cool are those shorts you made? They look like the same cut and shape as the yellow ones I always wear lol. I keep wearing them.

    PS. I LOVE Girl About Town! It's the best pink lipstick :) I wear it with Pink Poodle sometimes too. Oh, and this is mom bought some nopales that look like the ones on top of your blog! They're so cool. They grow into heart shapes.

  18. Your creative direction in these photos is spot on. And I have new for you: that jacket in the first picture is a work of art. Actually, that's probably not news to you. Moving on.

    When will you show us a picture of your beautiful little bebe? Or are you not the exploitative parent type? OR are you holding out for a bidding war that will ensue between InTouch Weekly and Us Magazine? Atta girl.

  19. Oh man, I wish that floral jumpsuit was my size - it's FABULOUS!! Sarah xxx
