You can’t go home again

Welcome back MyXXFam! You may have noticed we ditched palm trees for saguaros over the last few weeks, and may even be wondering why. While we offered a bit of an explanation, today we’re retelling a story that occurred on this bitter-sweet trip to bring closure to our series of three posts from the deserts of Arizona. Bienvenidos de nuevo MyXXFam! Es…

#BreakTheStigma

Welcome or welcome back MyXXFam! Today on the blog we’re coming to you live from Tropical Park in Miami, FL, with a photo-set that never would have seen the light of day if it wasn’t for the fact that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and on this very day, I was deeply entrenched in my…

Life Begins at…

This week we’re coming to you live from the fly murals of the Bird Rd. Arts District in motherfucking pants son. Whaaaaat? I know right? Esta semana venimos en vivo desde los murales del distrito de arte en Bird Rd. y no solo eso, hasta me puse pantalones. ¿Ideay chavala, y ese milagro? ¿Yo se, verdad? If…

There goes the sun; a tale about Home

Before you move forward, you’ve gotta remember where you’ve been and so today, we’re coming to you from home. The home my parents built for themselves 31 years ago, in the complex I’ve lived in for at least 28 of my nearly 30 years. Antes de seguir adelante, tienes que recordar dónde has estado y…

Unplug and Reprogram/Desenchufe y Reprograme

Welcome to Phase 3 MyXXFam! We’ve been churning out content non-stop for 40 weeks now and frankly, we’re exhausted. But since there’s no rest for the wicked, allow me to reintroduce myself. I’m Yesenia Guadalupe, thrift-store junkie, body positive babe, and your friendly neighborhood “fuck what you’ve been taught about living, we exist to do more than work and…

Anthology Dos

Well friends, another chapter of fly thrifted outfits, body positive goodness, mental health, art, and politics has come to a close! Where does the time go? If you’ve recently joined MyXXFam this is the perfect reference sheet for our last 20 posts. But if you’ve got time to kill at the cubicle, on the toilet, on the couch,…

An Open Face Along the Straits of Fear

This week in story time, like a sailor at sea, a survivor of flight 815, or the other sock, we are lost. Or rather, I am. Maybe the state of limbo in my life, and the lives of my loved ones is weighing on me, maybe I’ve got too much restless energy that’s gumming up the works, or maybe times…

The MyXXFLY Introvert’s Guide to the Holidays

  Happy Friday y’all! This week on the blog we’re coming at you in technicolor to bring you The MyXXFLY Introvert’s Guide to the Holidays. I call this week’s outfit Holiday Party Goth, and have got all your bases covered. Can’t stand the idea of attending your office work party? Is the thought of Noche Buena giving you social…

Ode to Tio Chele

  The fondest, most vivid memories of my childhood always play out on the same stage. The brick and mortar enveloping the sights and smells of my grandparents two bedroom home in West Miami. I can still see the streaks of light that shone in the living room through the vertical blinds on Saturday mornings. The smell of…

Get Over Yourself: An Existential Crisis

Welcome back to another week of thrifted fashion and the musings of your friendly neighborhood fat girl. You may recognize this skirt from our rainy summer day manifesto back when MyXXFLY was but a few weeks old. I assure you it’s pure coincidence that this skirt makes an appearance on two rainy day posts, and while it’s…
