¿Qué Onda Vos?

 I'm FINALLY getting around to posting pictures from my trip to Guatemala this past June. I'm sorry about this being a non-fashion post, but I couldn't resist not sharing some highlights from this amazing experience! I worked/taught at a school called Mi Refugio, 7,000 ft above sea level in the mountains of Guatemala. I can't begin to tell you all how life changing this trip was. Being thrown into a completely different way of life in a country I'd never been to really made me question everything I thought I knew about life. In good, non-morbid, way though. 



 Yes. These are real flowers. 









 Everyday when school began in the morning she would find me and hold my hand until she had to go to class. I miss her!

 Me with the founder of Mi Refugio in the marshmallow vest and one of the teachers in red. Real angels! 

I miss the loving and beautiful faces of all the children I worked with at Mi Refugio everyday. I know that I definitely want to go back...despite the fact that the bugs made me never want to set foot in Central America again.
On a fashion note: I was so captivated by the rich, vibrant colors of the country that I decided to buy two amazing pieces of fabric while I was in Antigua. I plan on turning them into something wearable but I can't decide what. Ideas?
