Truth Tuesday [#30]

 Buenos Dias, I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday!

My truth, I've always loved personalizing my items, but lately, I have been taking it to a whole new level. I am all about cutting, bleaching, dying and sewing these days, especially skinny jeans. I've gone so far as removing all of the skinny jeans from my closet and piling them in a corner, where they wait to morph into something else; a new identity.

The shorts in this outfit, were the first pair of skinny jeans to be put up on the chopping block! I had so much  fun doing this easy d.i.y, I think that's why I am currently addicted to altering my clothes! =) It's amazing how relaxing and therapeutic working with my hands can be....

Besos, bendiciones y buenas vibras

  3. Nina! D: Me encanta tu peinado :D
    Yo también personalizo mi ropa, no mucho, porque me da miedo arruinarla jajaj, es que para el trabajo manual soy pésimo jaja.
    Ya quiero que estés en L.A!!! :)
    Cuídate.

  5. I love your high ponytail and I love how it is put off to the side. It looks so good because your hair is so long. I am working on growing out my hair and it has been a long and slow process. I also love that you have been altering your own clothes. I have not done that since I was a teenager.

    Tambien queria decirte que yo tambien so bilingue y me gusta la manera que usas palabras en espanol y ingles en to blog.

  23. You did a great job on your DIY shorts. I have a couple pairs of shorts that I've done and I love them. I did a pair of skinny jeans once too but those ripped a year ago. Can't wait to see your other DIYs :)
