Boy, oh boy…the things I’ve seen. In the midst of a political crisis and the most outrageous Human Rights violations I have ever seen (seen, as in I’m saying it not because I read it in the newspaper, or because I was brainwashed into believing so) it’s been difficult trying to blog without rambling about the aforementioned. I’ll try. I moved into my grandma’s place! Been living here for about a month now. Not relevant for this “fashion” blog?? Wrong! More than relevant…just wait!
My bedroom is incredible: aqua walls covered in religious art, furniture twice my age, wooden floors so old there’s heel punctures all over. Punctures are my fault, of course. I wake up as in a Virgin Suicide’s set and therefore dress as so. Been wearing plenty of frills, my cream vintage ankle booties and nightgowns for day.
However, don’t think it’s all been rainbows and unicorns. It’s quite the challenge dressing up and expecting to get granny’s approval when it comes to what I wear! It bothers her that I wear hats around the house, she’s pulled my hem down more than once and makes remarks like the following: “Oh dear, I’m sure you didn’t actually mean to wear yellow earrings with that“.
Dont’ get me wrong, I’m not complaining! I looove it when she judges me and I admit to changing my outfits more than once just to make my ol’ lady happy.
I had also mentioned how I was finally able to get a workplace for sewing and it happens to be in a building a few houses away from grandma’s house, so she occasionally visits and brings delicious pastries with her. YUM. As for my plans, I’ve been sketching, testing a couple of tailors, working on dresses myself…I have plenty of ideas, but I’m not exactly sure where I’m going to be honest. I like clothes, I’m going to makes them. Perhaps sell them. I’m completely okay with having a little bit of suspense in life. We’ll see…keep posted!
