My love for fashion came as a little girl. In the times I would sit on our apartment kitchen floor, cutting my mom’s old t-shirts to make dresses for my dolls as she cooked dinner. I would tell my parents how I would be a designer one day, and be able to make pretty dresses. They never shot my dreams down. As I was growing up, I let other people influence me to not focus on my dream, to think of “back up plans”, or “actual careers”. The day I decided to pursue fashion one last time, I was two years deep in college for a major I did not want, and my dad was driving as I told him crying “This isn’t what I want”. He said, “What DO you want? Do THAT.”Now, I have graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Family Consumer Science with a major in Fashion Merchandising. I haven’t quit my day job, but here I am living my dream through this blog right now. No one is paying me for this. I do it quite simply, because it’s my passion.
One of my favorite designers/inspiration is Yves Saint Laurent. You will probably read a lot of his quotes on my blog, because I feel like he speaks to my style. He said, “Fashions fade. Style is eternal.”If you can understand that quote then you know style. If you don’t, it’s ok. I’m here to help.
It all started on a street called Sherwood Lane in Houston, Texas. I’ve always been a city girl with big dreams. I plan on being successful, but I never want to forget where I came from.
I dedicate this blog to God and Mi Familia. Thank you for believing in me, and supporting me no matter what I choose to do with my life. There would be no me without you.
