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.


  1. Hi, I've been reading your blog for a while and just had to say I love everything about this outfit. Love how the roses on your jacket go with the roses on your dress. xx

  2. I want your dress! Your jacket too :) I want everything you're wearing, actually. Your shoes go perfectly with that dress. So cute!

    You did a really good job on this vest as well. I don't know which one I like more.

    Yes, my necklace tiene la virgen on it. My madrina gave it to me when I was little. Are you reading my mind or something? ;) Because 2 days ago I was looking at the only picture I have of her (she passed away years ago). I hadn't seen it in a while. I love that necklace and I always wear it. I also have a cross hanging next to it.

    Have a good weekend, guapa! You make me hungry by talking about food. LMAO. I want to go eat again. That frittata sounds delicious!
