Let's be honest..

Even though we were really excited about this blog, and we had a lot of ideas for it.. there was something that bothered us: the name of the blog. 

At first we loved it, but after doing the first couple of posts, we realized we weren't pleased with the name, because it didn't reflect what we really wanted it the blog to be. So we've decided to change the name and do a whole new other blog. So as soon as we've decided how it's going to be called, we'll let you know. 

We'll maybe do a poll to see which name would you like more :)

PS. Promise you this is going to be a better blog and we'll actually post and be commited to it :)

we'll make sure to do some post before christmas :)

Thrift, thrift and thrift ..

So, as we said in our first entry,  here in Honduras there's no many choices when it comes to buying clothes. You either go with a safe style or go with the flow and risk having the same shirt, skirt or even sometimes the same outfit.

So to prevent having an akward situation with another girl, we've decided to think out of the box and go thrift shopping.

At first we were like: "Thrifting? seriously?" but after a lot of convincing from our grandma, we decided to give it a shot. And let me tell you, it has been quite a surprise.

Our most recent purchases have been by far the best ones

Mascapone Mix Boots by Clarks 

First we have these lovely boots by Clarks, that I wasn't so sure to buy them, because when you wear boots in Honduras, comments like "Hey cowgirl" or "Where's your horse?" never fail. But they were a great deal (They were $12) so I had to buy them. And besides, the weather here in Tegucigalpa has been nothing but rain! So I said why not?  and honestly I don't regret it.

Ostrich leather bag - $12

I've been looking for a bag with ostrich leather, and the moment I saw this one, I knew I had to buy it. Just look at the colors! I absolutely love it. 

Wish I knew what brand it is, but it had no tags on it. 

    This lovely "Egg Rolls" booties by Aerosoles, which also were a great deal ($12) and I absolutely love    them! They look great with skinny jeans, leggins and tights! And you know what's the best thing? They're so comfortable! 

And last but not least, the purchase we all think was the best one:
This beautiful dress "Simply Vera" by Vera Wang

Everything about this dress is great - It fits perfectly, the fabric is beautiful, and IT HAS POCKETS! I can't wait to wear this! 

With all this great finds, we don't need more convincing to do thrift shopping ;)

Just to let you know..

You have no idea how excited we are for this blog. We've been planning it for months and we have a lot of ideas for it :)

But we have a problem when it comes to posting, you see we barely see each other troughout the week, and the only time we actually spend together is in the weekend.

We know we just started but we really want to share with you a lot of stuff, so maybe we'll do two or three post in the week. When we get a hang of it we'll post as much as we can :) so for right now, sorry for the lack of posting.

But, if you're really interested in how this blog is going to be and to get to know us a little better, follow us on twitter: @RedLipsandPolka

Different, but the same :)

Different styles, different tastes, different ages but at the end we all share something.

And that's blood.

No, don't take it the wrong way, the thing is that, we, the people who run the blog, are family. The four of us are cousins. United by the same goal, to show what really fashion is.

Coming from a country where fashion means nothing more that wearing whatever it's in the stores, we've decided to take the opportunity to show that there's more to fashion than what the stores have.

But hey, not everything about this blog is going to be about fashion, as we've said before we all have different tastes and we'd like to share them with you.

This will be a place where you can find everything from cooking, to music, books and even sports! It's anything that inspires us and helps us to express ourselves.

We're going to share with you our day by day, and our little knowledge about the topics mentioned before.

So if you're reading this, thank you and we hope you stay with us :)
