More Denim DIY

I got so caught up trying to be a young Sandra Cisneros in my "Vest Side Story" post that I really glazed over the DIY vest I made. So it was a jean jacket, I cut off the arms, and appliqued a piece of fabric to the back using the satin setting on my machine. Even though I have been told my sewing looks like "Helen Keller did it" I still continue to try and make myself things, since I did take lessons for a bit and all. I just don't have a steady hand to ever create something really well. I'm better at other things and that is ok with me. Here is another piece I made for myself. It is La Virgen de Guadalupe on a jean jacket.

  I'm craving fall so bad this year. I vow to wear more than leggings, sweaters, and boots this year. I have been taking pointers from Helga and Desiree. I love their layering techniques.

even found a new pair of estripper heels 
all thrifted

without the jacket and shades, all ready for an easter sunday mass in August.

Have a fun week. I'm off to make a pesto tomato frittata. Never seen a word with so many t's.
Not even titicaca.

My Secret Life

Sparkle Motion
Vintage sequin blouse- Swap Meet
shorts- JC Putos
shoes- thrifted

Had to delete the rant I had posted under this photo. 

So I have a secret Instagram account @mamafreshveg 
It's where I post pics of the so called healthy food I eat. It's a photo menu for me really.

My new fave is a nopales (cactus) juice I make in the morning in my nutri-bullet.

the juice of 3-4 oranges
a handful of organic alfalfa sprouts
2 tablespoons of flax seeds
3/4 cup of nopales
1/2 cup of frozen pineapple chunks

GRIND and drink. So refreshing. But my market was out of nopales today so I guess I'll have to go on a hunt tomorrow at another store or find a machete and head for the hills...
