How I turned a pair of old jeans and craft store flowers into a show stopper

My work holiday party was coming up and I knew that I had to have one of the best looks, since I work in fashion. I was brainstorming what I wanted, and I stumbled upon the thought of 3D floral pieces. I looked all over ASOS trying to find 3D floral embellishments and there was nothing I liked. NOTHING. Not to mention they wanted $200+ for their cute occasion wear.

It’s no surprise to the people who know me, that I’m obsessed with Red Hot Chili Peppers and there are these pants that flea used to wear when they played shows that I’ve always admired.

Talk about some cool pants. I decided that I was going to make these pants but with flowers. I hit up dollar tree and Joann’s and purchased so many flowers, they probably thought I was planning a wedding. I don’t know how to use a sewing machine.. I only know how to use a needle and thread and this definitely made my work 10x longer, but 9 hours and an anxiety attack later, I had exactly what I had envisioned.

The perfect floral pants!! Now, these may look pretty on the outside, but it’s a thread MESS on the inside. I’m not a fashion designer and I didn’t go to school for fashion, I’m just a gal with crazy ideas. They were made with love and I was so excited to wear them and show my staff!

Here are a few pictures from the holiday party and the official debut of the pants.

Unfortunately my pants slowly lost a total of 6 flowers throughout the night.

A day at the pumpkin patch

Besides eating pumpkins, I do enjoy a good pumpkin patch. When living back in California, my family and I would always go to the corn maze and get lost, but then reward ourselves with Del Taco. So when my friend recommended we go to a pumpkin patch I was 100% down. It was fun hanging out with friends and going on a day where all the kids were in school. We basically had the entire farm to ourselves. The farm we were at had an Alice in Wonderland themed maze which was pretty darn cute! The maze lasted about 20- 30 mins, which was the perfect amount of time. There is nothing worse then wondering when the heck you’ll get out of there.

Another thing we couldn’t turn down was heading into the pumpkin patch and looking at all the pumpkins small and large grow on the vines. It’s definitely strange being the only people on the farm but, man did we take advantage of that.

Heart and Seoul

I left North America for the first time in my life in March. My homegirl Victoria and I crossed the Pacific to Seoul, South Korea. My childhood friend was studying abroad and I thought it was the perfect excuse to push myself out of my comfort zone and travel out of North America. I left not knowing the language at all but knew the people I’d be with knew some so I’d be alright. Now, this isn’t a blog post about all my experiences and things that I did in Seoul because that would be an entire novel. I want this post to reflect my trip via film. The people I met are unforgettable and I am forever grateful for the new friends that I have gained. Some of which I am still in contact with. I want this post to show the raw moments that we had.
