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.”
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.
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.
White jeans, maxi skirts and dresses.
I’m a bag person, so I’d have to say the Chanel bag I got for my 30th birthday.
Olivia Palermo, Audrey Hepburn and Miroslava Duma.
White distressed Levi’s 711 skinny ankle jeans.
A denim jacket, classic black slacks, black or nude pumps, and a white T-shirt. You can do lots of things with these pieces.
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.
