Q: How would you describe your personal style in 3-5 words?
A: basics, sporty, edgy yet feminine, street

Q: Where do you shop? Luxury or high street? New or vintage? Boutiques? Online?
A: I shop a lot of high street because I love being able to find affordable yet on trend pieces. Like everyone I do a lot of thrifting, especially in the states where I can go to Goodwill. In Europe I go to a lot of vintage/thrift stores as well except everything is really curated unlike american thrift.

Q: If you had $300 for a shopping spree, how many items would you buy?
A: 6, I think. It depends on the day.

Q: Do you prefer street style fashion or runway fashion?
A: I would say I personally represent street style more than runway, but runway looks are like my reference. I take each fashion week as an opportunity for me to study trends and I get a lot of inspiration from them.

Q: What do you splurge on? Skimp on?
A: I tend to splurge on jeans. I live off of denim. I probably spend the least on bags. Not on purpose, but after shoes and tops and jeans I feel like having a basic bag is fine. And also, I'm just waiting until I'm rich enough to proudly walk around with a Fendi.

Q: When and how did you become interested in fashion, and where do you find your inspiration?
A: I have always been obsessed with styling myself. I started realizing that I could embody a personal style when I was 11. I found my first inspiration from Spanish girls while I was living in Valencia, Spain in the early 2000s. When I moved back to the states and discovered the blog Fashionista when I was 14 my life literally opened up. Now I find most of my inspiration from girls I meet/see on the street/instagram it girls.

Q: Who are your favorite style icon(s)?
A: Models: Mimi Elashiry, Giza Lagarce, Elizabeth De La Piedra (Josh from Flosstradamus' wife), Gizele Oliveira, Kendall Jenner, Erika Bowes, Joanna Halpin.
Rihanna, Sofia Richie.

Q: What are your favorite fashion blogs? Magazines?
A: Magazines: Dazed, Nylon, Vogue from all countries (especially France), Oyster, i-D. My blog interests change too often. I lurk on most bloggers through their instagram because they are usually most consistent on there.

Q: What do you love about fashion? Not love?
A: I love how you can tell people about yourself without words. I don't love the discrimination that occurs sometimes, I don't love how you can be an ultimate lover and guru of the fashion world but still not be able to own things from your favorite designer just because the prices are the way they are.

A: Chanel, always. Celine, Moschino, Versace, Saint Lauren, Miu Miu, Kenzo, Marc Jacobs, Loewe, Mason Margiela, Ashish, Bimba y Lola.

Q: Do you follow fashion trends? Which ones?
A: Pant trends are important. What kind of jean cuts are in? What material of pants are in? I also follow hair trends from runways.

Q: Which would you be best at? Worst at? (Stylist, Designer, Photographer, Buyer)
A: Stylist. And buyer. Photographer I wish, but I think really what it is is I wish I could model, hahah.

Q: What is your dream job?
A: Editorial styling, celebrity styling for events and music videos... becoming an it girl like Atlanta de Cadenet where I'm known for being a bombshell and dressing amazing. I also think I could be a good model scout.

Q: What are your other interests? How do you spend your spare time?
A: I love languages and as someone who is bilingual and as a current teacher of English to Spaniards I get to work with that. I also love partying.. I really am someone who prefers being with my friends out and about. I also love hair/nails/makeup. I was in Cosmetology school in high school so I do have a background in that. I also am addicted to horror movies and to ghosts in general, like how cool is that stuff, right?
