Once upon a time, I wore glasses, had braces, suffered from blonde unmanageable curly hair, and was as skinny as a toothpick! My personal transformation went beyond a physical change. It meant growing emotionally, professionally, and accepting my flaws while embracing my good qualities. Although I have blossom, I still don’t take myself too seriously, and compliments still manage to make giddy like a little girl. When I’m flattered, I get totally blushed! Can’t help but turn red like a tomato, feel hot like if I was on fire, and become somewhat claustrophobic. Needless to say, I don’t take compliments very well. Perhaps I have the Ugly Duckling Complex?…

Hello Frugalistas!

Everyone has a personal style. A unique way of showing their perspective on fashion, colors, prints and shapes. For me, it’s all about been eclectic and mixing uber-feminine pieces with edgy accessories. I love creating the contrast between classic silhouettes and bolder styles, giving to any design a fresher upgrade in a second! Sometimes we play it safe with neutral colors and pops of vibrant ones, and sometimes we go all out there combining textures and prints.

During my amazing trip to New York City, for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I had the incredible opportunity to play blogger-model for some brands including Covergirl and StyleCoalition. The invitation to attend their ultra VIP bloggers-only lounge came at a great time as the exhausting schedule of shows was draining my energy!
