*Sewing 101*

Fashion is my Passion, and as the Self proclaimed Queen of Fashion and Psychology, I like clothes, shoes, accessories etc. But what better way to be me, than by learning how to sow. For Christmas i asked Santa Claus or (My Husband) for a sowing machine. *Here is my new sewing machine*

photo 1Growing up my mom and grandma would make a potato sack look like a wedding gown in minutes, so i figured it was installed in my DNA, the only problem is that as enthusiastic as i am to sow, i also realized i have no skills, knowledge or understanding about sowing. So of course as any young techie person i went to the source YouTube and i discovered that i could be only several minutes away from being the Puerto-Rican “Edith Head” of sowing. I’m working on my first skirt, pictures soon to come. I did find this girl and she is just awesome, i have watched all of her videos and have learned so much. I wanted to share this post with you and also a video of her amazing sewing skills.

I love this Top thrifted Lane Bryant, Skirt with overalls at Dots, Tights Walgreen’s, Leopard Shoes from Shoe-land Orlando Fl. This is such a cute outfit, this top is to big since my weight loss so i had to take it in. I felt pretty good, it’s funny to see myself in this skirt and to see how much longer and looser it fit. Have a Great Day!

The Psychology of the Color Pink

pink-fashion-27_largeThe Color Pink

The meaning of the color pink is unconditional love and nurturing. The color pink represents compassion, nurturing and love. It relates to unconditional love and understanding, and the giving and receiving of nurturing. A combination of red and white, pink contains the need for action of red, helping it to achieve the potential for success and insight offered by white. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits. Pink is feminine and romantic, affectionate and intimate, thoughtful and caring. It tones down the physical passion of red replacing it with a gentle loving energy. Pink is intuitive and insightful, showing tenderness and kindness with its empathy and sensitivity. In color psychology, pink is a sign of hope. It is a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.

Pink calms and reassures our emotional energies, alleviating feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. Studies have confirmed that exposure to large amounts of pink can have a calming effect on the nerves and create physical weakness in people. Violent and aggressive prisoners have been successfully calmed by placing them in a pink room for a specified amount of time. Exposure for too long can have the opposite effect. The color pink puts people in touch with the nurturing side of themselves, through either the need to receive or the need to give, nurturing and TLC (tender loving care!). Be aware of this if you have a friend who constantly wears pink as it may indicate a need for acceptance, support and unconditional love!   Pink is a non-threatening color seeking appreciation, respect and admiration. It doesn’t like to be taken for granted and just loves to hear the words ‘thank you’. Pink can signify good health, being ‘in the pink’, and success as in ‘everything’s rosy’.pink-fashion-31

The color pink represents the sweetness and innocence of the child in all of us. It is the color of uncomplicated emotions, inexperience and naiveté. A constant and exclusive use of pink can often lead you to become immature, silly and girlish, abandoning your adult responsibilities. Pink can also remind you of earlier childhood memories, associated with nurturing and comfort from your mother or a mother figure. Pink, from a negative color meaning, can represent a lack of will power, a lack of self-reliance and a lack of self-worth. It can indicate an overly emotional and overly cautious nature. Combining pink with other darker colors such as dark blue, dark green, black or gray, adds strength and sophistication to pink.

“AS YOU CAN SEE MY HUSBAND WAS A LITTLE MORE INTERESTED IN THE Jennifer Lopez CLOTHES LINE 🙂 “

My Son Preston, Future Model…

My son Preston is 22 months, he is not much for words, but he has a great sense of style.. I love it.. He put on my hat then said mami, as he grabbed my cell phone, so that i can take a picture and then asked to see himself and smiled.. My older son Hamilton is sitting in the background, he is 6 yrs old.

 

My Homage to “Budgetnista”

I Love Fashion, hence the Blog..lol.. But one of my Favorite sites has to be http://budgetchic.org/. I love her sense of style, she is very eclectic. She is thrifty and Fabulous. So I dedicate this Blog to her. You are a Beautiful Woman out and in. May God Bless you, your son and your daily life.  Here are some of my Favorite pictures of her..

Chunky and Fabulous

So i received this e-mail. It said “Dear Zulema, You have a great sense of style for a fat girl. Nothing personal, until I saw your blog, I had never realised that obese women, had any kind of fashion sense or style, so thank you for this website”. 

As i finished reading this paticular e-mail. I was not sure if i should be happy, sad,  offended or what. I mostly laughed and thought since when was I fat or obese? I suppose to todays standards of society i am not a Kate Moss or a Gisele Bundchen. But then again would i want to look like that? So i went to the best source my mom a 60 year old–  5’5,  135 pound woman, she laughed and as always threw incredible knowledge my way. She said beauty comes in evrey shape, size and color. Does the whale look at the dolphin and thinkwhy cant i be smaller? Does the Red Robbin look at the Eagle and think your wings are nicer and bigger? Zulema she said their has to be a balance in nature. And you are beautiful becuase you are a part of us. You have the best features of your dad and I. And i m a beautiful woman..(LOL)..

I thanked her, and thought Chunky and Fabulous, I am not a size 0. But I am very happy withmy 12-14 shape. I can do anything anybody else can do. So yes we Chunky women, or girls or teen agers. Have a sense of style and fashion. We to like tofeel beautifulith shoes, purses, dresses and much more. When I look in the morror I see a mother, a friend, a girlfriend, a companion, a social worker, a fierce, strong, powerful, smart, educated, funny, serious, wonderful woman, with her own sense of style and fashion…

To all the Chunky Women and Men out their I say, get up and Strut your stuff!!!

I adore Carrie’s 1st outfit! The western shirt with jeans and high heels?! How more stylish can she look?! Flawless! I cannot wait for the movie to come out. Question. I love the style of shoe she is wearing on the 1st pic, if I am not mistaken, Kim Kardashian also loves these shoes…unfortunately, never in my life have a been able to wear slip on shoes do you know if there are any shoes similar to that style with a strap? I will greatly appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
