How did you first start blogging?

I started blogging in 2007, creating a street style blog from my hometown of San Antonio, Texas. I experimented with fashion and was inspired by street style all around me. I set out to prove that Texas fashion was more than just jeans and a T-shirt. Although it was never my goal, starting a street style blog helped me become more social and meet new people. I started a personal style blog in 2010 after moving to NYC. 

What camera do you use?

Where are you from?

Originally from San Antonio, Tx, I went to school in Austin and moved to New York City about 7 years ago. In 2017, I moved back to San Antonio. 

What do you like to blog about?

I usually stay in the fashion and beauty department, but occasionally expand to other things like lifestyle, food or film. 

How would you describe your style?

My style is sort of sock-hop meets twee old lady. I’m a big fan of girl-groups and French new wave films. Over the years, I've honed in on the things I love most. I strive for a mix of a hats and white gloves mixed with my love of crazy cat sweaters and glitter. It makes my style me!

Who are your style icons?

Some of my major inspirations include Ronnie Spector (The Ronettes) and Marlo Thomas (That Girl). 

Who are your favorite designers?

Red Valentino, Oscar de la Renta, Miu Miu and Honor

Do you have any NYC shopping recommendations?

NYC thrift stores are usually picked over, but the Goodwill outlet is the place to go for the ultimate thrifting high. It’s a buy-by-the-pound warehouse where you truly have to dig. I always find something unique. This includes vintage Coach bags, amazing records and an Oscar de la Renta skirt for mere dollars. 

My favorite vintage stores include all the shops owned by L Train Vintage. While not everything is amazing, it’s all vintage and all super cheap ($7-$40). For the nicer stuff, Amarchord and Brooklyn Flea have amazing pieces.
