Q: Where did you grow up, and where do you live now?
A: I grew up in Costa Rica, and now I live in Madrid, Spain

Q: What have you studied, and what are you doing now?
A:I first studied graphic design in Buenios Aires, Argentina, after this I transfered to Milan to study photography while I was living in Milan I came to Madrid to visit a friend, and fell in love with the city I think Madrid is very exciting. It is very important to feel alive and inspired with your surronding and so I decided after a year in Milan to come and live in Madrid after finishing photography I did a Masters in fashion communication. It was the best decision I could do it gave me more knowledge and learning opportunities in the industry. Right now I'm the communication director of an Italian multibrand luxury store.

Q: How would you describe your personal style in 3-5 words?
A: Versatile. I cant stick to three I enjoy stepping out of my comfort zone and switching up my looks, mixing and matching to create different outfits, a versatile style defines me because Im attracted to various concepts sometimes I'm feeling preppy others boho chic etc.I also have a weakness for leather jackets.

Q: Where do you shop? Luxury or high street? New or vintage? Boutiques? Online?
A: I have a few luxury pieces, but I decided that until I can make that investment on my one I wont even bother, there is countless options we can find when we feel the curiosity to discover styles and not stick to what expensive and luxury brands offer.
Online shopping?? Guilty! I can spend a friday looking into lookbooks, asos, zara, revolve etc. and a small bucket of ben and jerry's haha.
I adore vintage stuff, my mother lived in Paris when she had my age and she kept through the years a lot of clothes and accesories, they are my greatest treasure. There is something incredible about wearing a timeless piece.

Q: If you had $300 for a shopping spree, how many items would you buy?
A: It depends on what I want , sometimes we buy a bunch of cheap and trendy stuff for 300 and there are times we really want to spend it in a cute handbag or a nice pair of party shoes.

Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A:Streetstyle fashion is about the atention to details, it is the result of trends meeting taste, the ability of a person to make this trend their one and interpretate them as they are, its about personality and I think this is magnificent but off course I have to say runway fashion is an overwhelming experience. I would love to be in a seat of a Louis Vuitton show and a Haute Couture, it transports you to an other world, time and era.

Q: What do you splurge on? Skimp on?
A: Accesories!

Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I would have to say my interest grew when I left my home country Costa Rica, it es a very beautiful place but the fashion industry there is very weak if not null. So it really developed when I moved to Milan and I was in the middle of a fashion hustling city.

Q: Who are your favorite style icon(s)?
A: Alexa Chung, Leandra Medine

Style Bubble, you can tel when you come across a blog that really cares about fashion what is behind it as well. I think nowadays we have an excess of bloggers doing it for the wrong reasons not because they really understand and love fashion but because they want the ''fame'' the ''likes'' and the free goodies.

Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A:I like the way it inspires, and the way it can tell a story. People that really see fashion as a way of expression can create incredible styles and trends.
