Some sewing inspo from the ever inspiring Free Peeps (Free People). Any [broke] bohemian covets that site because not only is their styling amazing but the actual clothes are amazing to! Now, I am definitely one for quality, but dropping the big bucks on everyday items that I know I don’t really need is definitely out of the question (at least until I’m making enough money to eat and shop). Now, this is where the magic happens, DIY! I have bags and bags of fabric stowed away. I actually have several yards of deep red and red velvet just waiting to be whipped into a pair of super bells. Some gauzy printed silk, heavy printed cotton, Middle eastern/South Asian inspired appliques…yeah, it’s like a wet dream up in my sewing room! All I need to do now is plaster these pics and more like em all over said room so it pushes me to such a delirious state of consumer-driven desire that I move my ass to my sewing machine! Have any pics like these saved on your computer? Have you created anything inspired by something way out of your price range? Comment below so I can share in the fun!

Sometimes I take my own pictures. Yesterday my husband was taking a nap, and I’m not one to stay in my outfit when I get home. I instantly put my pajamas on. Anyone else like that? So I went to Ross to use the dressing room mirrors. But they were a little dirty! Oh well. I love these pants! Another thrift store score. They have ties on the side so I tied them in the back to make them high waisted and sleeker in the front. Watcha think? I also took some pictures of the subset then digitally painted all over them. Watcha think?

Like heaven. Still jamming to that playlist I posted here a while ago. It’s worth a listen if you like 60s/70s rock folk yummy dreamy music. Lots of Nancy Sinatra, Jane Birkin, Holly Golightly, Brigitte B, Lee Hazlewood…you get the idea. Perfect for fluttering around the house in your best dress and flower crown and gobs and gobs of jewelry. So, maybe I should talk about these photos! From the other day at school. http://www.lookbook.nu/look/5805199- hype me up on lookbook! I really like lookbook, it has a very positive vibe, people leave such nice comments!

Hola mis chiquitas! I’m so excited because I finally got to upgrade my phone! I’m currently typing this post on my new HTC One! Now, before you get jealous or think I’m spoiled, I’ve been using my droid incredible 2 since 2011. So I’ve paid my dues and have been very patient. Now I’m squeeling! I actually do feel like a spoiled princess, even though I was due an upgrade and the phone was free (after I get the mail in rebate, total drag!!). Holding/using this caliber of tech is incredible. But the downside is that I don’t have any photos or cool pics I can post here yet! I’m being lazy (but actually have a shitload of homework). So please be patient with me! I love and live for you all!!
