I was born and raised in NYC (the Bronx to be exact) raised by Hispanic parents from Cuba and Puerto Rico which I only mention because it had such an impact on the person I am today. I speak Spanish fluently and enjoy having convos with my mom in Spanglish (when you speak English and Spanish in the same conversation) Aside from my family I can't live without a good cup of coffee every morning & shopping for beautiful pieces to add to my wardrobe. I have a serious addiction to the Club Monaco store and I love salty versus sweet treats!

After attending FIT and then graduating from LIM college (the best college for the business of fashion). I immediately began working in the fashion industry, where I learned so much about the business both from a design and business perspective. Currently I work for Ralph Lauren in design development.

I created this blog as an outlet to share and inspire. My snap shots are all taken by me! I don't have a photographer following me around and I didn't want my photos to look planned. My blog is definitely nontraditional as I like things to look natural and organic. I feel you can relate to them more.
