the girl in the second hand skirt



I can say with unwavering confidence that there won't be a reader of Third World of A Fashionista who hasn't grinned at the relatable wit and charm of Fabi's posts. She bashes out cute skirts on her sewing machine, reinvents last season's louis vuitton and recently battled through a rough patch when she recieved ridicule from the locals for having a sense of style teetering well and truly in the "unknown realms" of lou doillon and european magazine editors.


"I have an insanely random interest in fashion that isn't socially accepted in my town OR by my family." And there we were prancing about in our American Apparel skirts without thinking twice.
Naturally this is all against a lush Honduras backdrop of watermelon stalls, fading washing lines and exotic leafty greenery.
Whatever comes her way, from small cases of schadenfreude to hurricanes or bitchiness, she sticks to her guns: her heels and thrifted skirts firmly on.
Her latest hurdle? Losing her blog, which has been running since February 2007.
But no fear.. ever the feelgood fashion story, Fabi has quickly started a new version over here. Pop over and drop her a line, and if you're new to her blog introduce yourself!

Oh dear, that's awful- Blogger's done this before, and it's horrible. And Fabi's name suits her to a T, I really wish this hadn't happened.
PS: I've tagged you to reveal six unimportant things about yourself. Hope you don't mind..

She is such a pretty lady, I agree with la playa, especially in that last pic.

And I know what you mean about Mischa now. She has just lost her magic touch I think!

to miss at la playa and on track: i agree with you, she looks so fantastic in that picture, especially considering the extreme yoga and super stacked heels combo! hehe.

and "Poof! It's gone!"? ey, coco you make i laugh!

WOw I've been to her blog once or twice and I didn't know who this was. I will go ther more often. I like her spunk.

Jimena said...

I love Fabi as well.. her blog, sense of style and writing are absolutely great.

Being peruvian, I can relate to how she feels when she talks about being critisized for her interest and individuality in fashion... I find her inspiring!

I love Fabi. I remember reading about how people are unnaccepting of her style and her fashion sense, but here we are oceans and continents away, admiring her for her amazing talent.
