Describe your style in one word. DIVA
What is your best-kept fashion secret? That it’s all in the attitude. Hold your head up high. Real high!
What are the five fashion essentials every woman should have in her closet?
1- Beautiful high heels. Height is paramount. It keeps u on your toes- literally!
2- A nice pair of jeans. They are clean, and crisp. With a pair of jeans you can still look fabulous without looking like if you are trying too hard to dress up.
3- A funky purse. You can be wearing an everyday outfit, but with a funky purse it’ll give your outfit style – just as if you planned it all along. After all, you must have planned it because check out that purse!
4- Anything expensive or couture, because you deserve it. It could be something simple like a wallet, or something dainty like a sapphire ring. It has to be a splurge – Manolo Blanik shoes, Prada bag – you know! Anything that makes you remind yourself that you bought it because you are worth it.
5- Comfortable sneakers – many women dress up lovely but they don’t dress down lovely. You can be just as fashionable dressed down. Just because you are going running doesn’t mean you have to wear an old pair of dirty sneakers. If you are going to the beach with your family, it doesn’t mean you have to wear the oldest pair of chanclitas. You can be fashionable and comfortable at the same time.
Who is your style icon?
Charytin -yeah! She looks FABULOUS. Total diva!
What is the biggest fashion mistake a woman can make?
Forgetting the details – like beautiful pedicures
What is your favorite outfit?
Short shorts – anything short
What is your favorite way to accessorize?
I like to carry funky pocket books. Also, I love hoop earrings. What can I say? I love large earrings in general.
If you could give women a fashion tip to be fabulous, what would it be?
“Hold your head up girl. Know you got it and walk as if you got it.” It’s all about your attitude. If you think you look fabulous, everyone around you would look and say, “Hey! Wow! I want to be like her!”
