ABOUT HER BLOG:

 I’ve always been interested in fashion. I used to make my own clothes and put on fashion shows for my dad. I decided to start the blog Wild Thing because a lot of people had been asking me where I got my clothes. About a year later, I changed it to Vida Fashionista. Vida is my nickname and means “life” in Spanish, so my blog name also translates to the “life of a fashionista.”

PERSONAL STYLE:

When I first started, my style was more in your face and bold. Now I feel like I’ve tried to be more classic and timeless, while still mixing in my prints to have my personality shine through.

GO-TO PLACES TO SHOP:

 Zara, Old Navy and H&M. I shop in pieces rather than outfits. I build my wardrobe and a bunch of different outfits from that, rather than building a whole outfit from head to toe.

FAVORITE PIECES FOR SUMMER:

White jeans, maxi skirts and dresses.

FAVORITE ITEM IN HER CLOSET:  

I’m a bag person, so I’d have to say the Chanel bag I got for my 30th birthday.

STYLE ICONS:

Olivia Palermo, Audrey Hepburn and Miroslava Duma.

MOST RECENT ADDITION TO HER CLOSET:

White distressed Levi’s 711 skinny ankle jeans.

EVERY WOMAN NEEDS:

A denim jacket, classic black slacks, black or nude pumps, and a white T-shirt. You can do lots of things with these pieces.

HER BEST FASHION ADVICE:

Shop smarter, not harder. You don’t have to buy designer labels to look good. It’s all about being confident in what you’re wearing.
