Today I loved my outfit… I know I say that a lot but this outfit was special. My boss (Pecana) has found a renewed love for fashion. Her style isn’t exactly like mine because she like comfort over glamour… that is fine. Each individual deserves to find the fashion that makes them happy. In her search for a makeup artist she found a YouTube blogger that is not only great at makeup but fashionable on a budget. In one of her YouTube videos she shoes you how to make a fringe scarf (like the one you see me wearing below) from an old t-shirt. My boss and I both tried it. I did my in gray and my boss’ is in navy. Once it was complete I knew exactly how I would wear it, and then I added my cobalt skirt for a pop of color. Again… I really love how this outfit turned out.
Today was a rollercoaster… my part-time job is kicking my butt and I am just trying to maintain my finances at the same time trying to reign in a rebelling 15 year old teenage boy. Each day he tests my love and patience and to be honest… I don’t know how much more I can take before I snap, pack a bag, and runaway to join the circus (hey… at least I could wear sequins everyday and hang upside down from the rafters). Anyway… I know with prayer and positive re-enforcement he will get back on the right path (I hope and pray he does) it just hard to see the light through all the clouds… ya know?
Anyway… back to fashion… Below my photos you will see the link to the YouTube bloggers DIY video. If you visit her channel and subscribe… let her know where you found her link. I hope you try the scarf… if so… email me a photo or link me to your blog photo if possible. Have you done any really great fashion DIY projects lately? If so, what was it? Do you have any links to ways to use old shirts or jeans that don’t require a sewing machine? What do you think of my outfit today? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~
