Diary of a Third World Fashionista

Diary of a Third World Fashionista blog
La Ceiba isn’t exactly a fashion capital. Therefore, “Diary of a Third World Fashionista” isn’t your typical style blog. My love for fashion began in my grandma’s closet and ever since then I spend hours dissecting fashion magazines and attending sewing courses in government institutes trying to make the most of the few resources my country offers.

Diary of a Third World Fashionista blogOn this blog I share my challenges as I open up a sewing shop, my fabulous finds in second hand/thrift shops, the funny reactions from people when they notice my clothes don’t match on purpose and the unexpected places I get my inspiration from (from Central Park to nearby towns). It is simply a personal escape in which I try to remind myself that all I have to do is be constant in fighting for a dream and enjoying the obstacles while I’m at it. I do this all light-heartedly and, obviously, in 5-inch heels.

Diary of a Third World Fashionista blogLa Ceiba no es exactamente una capital de la moda. Por lo tanto, “Diario de una Fashionista del Tercer Mundo” no es tu típico blog de estilo. Mi amor por la moda comenzó en el closet de mi abuelita y desde entonces paso horas disecando revistas de lo mismo y tomando cursos de costura en institutos del gobierno aprovechando los pocos recursos que mi país me ofrece.

En este blog comparto mis retos al querer abrir mi taller de costura, mis compras fabulosas en tiendas de segunda, las reacciones graciosas de las personas al ver que mi ropa no combina a propósito y los lugares inesperados de donde sale mi inspiración (desde el Parque Central hasta los pueblos cercanos). Es simplemente un escape personal en el que busco recordarme a mi misma que lo importante es luchar por los sueños y disfrutar los obstáculos. Todo esto lo hago con un corazón liviano y, obviamente, en tacones de cinco pulgadas.

What a fantastic Blog. An interesting contrast between A Great Sense of Fashion with The Harsh Reality of an Economically Limited City's Lansacape. I got goosebumps of joy when I saw the Fantasticly dressed Author pose with such grace and elgance.

You must check this Blog!

Me encanta Fabi! , no sabia que estaba actualizando de nuevo... entiendo demasiado bien lo que significa estar frente a una vitrina de Charlies y sentir que el alma se te muere un poquito.
