So I was tagged in a selfie “challenge” where you are asked to post selfies that you’ve taken over time. To make it easier I decided to stick to my photobooth selfies.
This is me throughout they past couple of years (mostly freshmen year of college).
STarting with the first selfie I ever took on my laptop (Con mi Abue)
and ending with the Selfie that started a wave of self love and creation in my life (taken January 2014).
I must say that this took me about 2 hrs to do. and it was amazing.
Hella tearing up a bit- it’s been a fucking ride!
Can’t believe I’m coming into my last year as a FUCKING UNDERGRAD!
LIKE WTF!!! Damn mi juventud- el PARIIII- Lo Desmadroso!!!
FUCk. like it’s beautiful. You know at every step I’ve been like this is it- I can’t get better- and every time I’m wrong-because it does.
Un brindis- con mi empanda de piña y vaso de agua- A LA VIDA.
There needs to be at least one scene of a kid (second grader) putting on their mother’s bras, dresses, and heels.
*Looking in the mirror hella inspired and happy-walking back and forth like it was New York fashion week.*
Then adding the lipstick in front of the mirror after locking themselves in-
*flashback to a moment of the child watching their mother putting on their makeup *con ojos de admiration*) Then the child looking at themselves the same way- head cocked a little back -lips open- then making that popping sound at the end as they rub their lips together.
When I was younger- well I’ve always loved to draw.
I started by drawing womyn. Like a cartoon princess type.
I’d draw them with long gown. and I’d always add flowers with drapery
in-between each flower (almost like a cake).
Then I got really into designing their clothes.
So I would start to draw clothing- dresses, skirts, tops, shoes
I remember once I though I had invented a butterfly top. I had the vision that when the person wearing it would open their arms you’d have this fabric extend and it’d be like butterfly wings. Shortly after I saw a butterfly crop-top.. And throughout the years I’ve seen that vision of flow-y things- but hmm never butterfly wings…
Maybe who knows!
All to say that for a REALLY long time I wanted to be a fashion designer- it’s what kept me drawing/inspired my drawings for many many years.
Blah blah blah- project runaway is entertaining.
It’s just my quesadilla, a candle, Project Runway and myself tonight baby.
Also*PS* Quick Add** My greatest sewing acomplishment (BY HAND) was a blue turquoise thong I sewed for myself- OMG it was lovely!!! And I was like in middle school. I remember coming into the room and showing my brother.. HAHAHAHA!!! -Oh shiiit…
Too many crazy memories =)
Okay now peace out for reals… =)
