What do you like about being Latina?
I love how rich and vibrant my culture is. I'm very proud of being morena, I love to wear bright colors and how they look against my skin tone. I love that being a Latina means having a wider view of the world through the many nationalities that make up our community and sharing the same beautiful Spanish language. Shout out to my fellow Mexicans!
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?My husband and I own a Sign business, and to the surprise of many I am quite the handy woman! I'm often climbing ladders, doing electrical work inside crevices and driving our bucket truck. I'm also quite savvy using power tools; I can find you any drill bit and properly attach it to the drill within seconds! You can catch me wearing work boots and a ponytail on my Snapchat (mystyleboxx)!
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
I would describe my closet as an organized mess, simply because I buy what I like without rhyme or reason. You can find a torn up band tee hung right next to a Blair Waldorf inspired pleaded skirt. Most of my favorite pieces don't follow one particular style; rather they represent very different aspects of my personality. However like most I'm a sucker for a good ol' all black look!
What trends are big in your city?
Albuquerque is very driven by its culture. On any given day you can find someone rocking turquoise jewelry and sandals! The mixture of Hispanic and Native American influences makes for unique southwestern trends that manifest themselves to the young and mature. From fringes to pom poms everyone expresses themselves through their own style and that’s one of the many reasons why I love my city!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
Some of my favorite stores to shop are the usual suspects, Forever21, Express, Rue21, etc. And I dabble on some online shopping from Fashion Nova, Boohoo and Lolashoetique. However you will often find me looking though the racks at Marshall's and Tj maxx because above and beyond brands I'm most drawn to purchasing trendy beautiful items that won't break the bank.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I love Vanessa Hudgens! She has an eccentric earthy boho chic look about her that inspires me. Her unique style, although not similar to mine, is truly one of my favorites, as she expresses her true self in a way that makes me aspire to do the same. I am most obsessed with the elegance and simplicity that Alejandra Espinoza (Mexican model) radiates through her effortless style! I can always count on her outfits to give me some #ootd ideas of my own!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I see my self growing, in every single aspect of life. Growing as a human, learning more about other cultures, respecting others’ views, being more woke, expanding my knowledge, growing financially, becoming a better wife, daughter, sister and friend, traveling and falling in love with every place I visit. I see me loving myself more and accepting myself more. I strive to be a better version of myself everyday. My goals are endless, but above all I want to be able to inspire others through my makeup, style, and most importantly my personality! I want to keep on living my best life!
