What do you like about being Latina?
I love everything about being Latina. I love the music, the food, the olive complexion…the list goes on. In addition, I think it brings out the “pitbull” in me. Only when I need it, of course! Speaking of, Pitbull is my favorite artist - dale!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
When I splurge, it is almost always on an item from Gucci. I love that you can walk out of there with a timeless piece, or one that is super trendy. My black belt, for instance, will never go out of style. My velvet “belt bag” on the other hand…let’s just say fanny packs were not always “cool!”
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
This is a very hard question for me to answer because I am a LOVER of color. In fact, it makes me a happier person. With home décor I like to liven things up with pops of green/chartreuse and gold hardware. But when it comes to my closet, it depends on the season. Right now though I am on a kick for 50 shades of pink.
What is your favorite outfit in your closet?
My favorite outfit is one that I wore last September during New York Fashion Week. It is a sheer crop top and leather mini skirt number, topped with a tinsel fringe jacket. That is not a typo - tinsel fringe ?.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
If I could live in Kourtney Kardashian’s closet, I would be the happiest fashionista on the planet. I adore her style. I love how she is sometimes edgy, and sometimes totally feminine. She also uses the same tricks that I do to lengthen the appearance of her petite frame. No one wears a crop top and high-waisted pants combo better than her!
What is a good life lesson that you would like to share with others?
With regards to fashion, it bothers me when people say, “I love your outfit, but I could never pull it off.” I am a firm believer that you can wear whatever you want as long as you do it with confidence! Your confidence will always be your best accessory!
