What do you like about being Latina?
What I love about being Latina is that we are very feisty and independent women. We have so much to bring to the table and part of that has to do with how we were raised! We work hard and still know how to handle our business at work, or at home. Latinas have a lot of character. There is a big stereotype out there that Latinas are crazy, but we aren’t. We are just very passionate and we are not afraid to speak our mind!
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?Something about me that will surprise people is that I am a very shy person. Only those who know me personally get to experience the real me! A lot of people don’t really get to see this side of me because they only know me through Instagram, and on social media my alter-ego comes out. Instagram Leslie is super carefree, fierce, and confident. However, people don’t see what happens behind the camera. I am super dorky and I usually change back to sweats and a hoodie when I am done taking pictures!
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
My favorite colors are black, white, and mustard yellow! I would say 80% of my clothes are in the color black, but sometimes I try to spice it up and wear white! I just think white is super elegant and classy. For outfits I think my closet is full of two pieces! If I see any matching sets in the store I am just like well take my money!
What trends are big in your city?
So, in the Bay it’s really hard to describe a trend because everyone is so unique and different, but I would say everyone has some swag to them. I am the complete opposite. I am stuck with the So Cal fashion trends, because I lived there for four years and that’s where I got most of my fashion inspiration from. In LA it’s all about the glamour, the glitter, and the extra-ness, so people in the Bay look at me funny!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
I am very into Gucci right now, because I just think it’s a staple and it looks dope! But my dream is to own a Chanel Bag. I just think Chanel is super elegant!
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
Wow this is a really hard question because everyone in the fashion industry has been killing the game, but I would say Olivia Culpo. She just has effortless beauty and fashion trends. Every time she posts something on Instagram it always ends up on my saved pictures!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
In five years I see myself living in a condo on the Hills of LA. I see myself being the head coordinator for a big marketing firm. As for my fashion I see it taking off. I just see myself making money out of my personal brand. I have a lot of goals/ dreams that I want to accomplish, but I am taking everything one step at a time. I trust my own process and I just want to enjoy the journey!
