makenewwords asked: So, my brother is getting married in August and I am the maid of honor. All very exciting and wonderful of course, but I need a fancy and absolutely stunning dress for the rehearsal dinner and I have no idea where/how to find one. Help?
Hi! How lovely. A few of my favorite “dressier” dresses for summer:
I swear the Dori Dress is the most perfect dress you will ever own. I hope that helps and you have a lovely time! xo
derprisethevelociraptor asked: Hi! I've had an idea of what I wanted to do with my career for a really long time but now I'm starting to think that I want to do something with fashion instead. Any tips for someone just starting to find out about the industry?
Hi! My only tip of advice:
Good luck! x
ittakes2tomango asked: Do you deal with any insecurities or body image issues? You definitely don't have any reason to, but I was just wondering how you deal with them. I also work in fashion and I find myself constantly comparing myself to others in the industry. Love all your posts by the way! :)
Hiya! Like any girl, I have my fleeting moments of self-doubt about my personal appearance (especially when I’m in the middle of finals and haven’t been to the gym in two weeks, aka my life right now). But there’s no way I let it defeat me. There was a time where I had a really unhealthy relationship with food (only ate raw veggies and fruits and windled down to about 105 pounds). It was really rough to bounce back from that, but when I did I was ten times more aware of what I was eating and how it benefited my body.
Today I ‘deal’ with those fleeting moments by remembering I can’t change the way my body was built BUT I can work to be the healthiest version of me that I can be. I remember that I am a creation, and everyone is a creation. We’re all different, and that’s what’s so beautiful. I turned the idea of “comparing myself to other people” into “celebrating the differences between myself and everyone around me.”
I always remind myself that “beautiful” is a universal size with no number. And we are all definitely more important than a number on a scale or pair of pants.

marthapocket asked: Recently you been posted Instagram photos with amazing hair! What is your routine? And what products you use? Thanks. I think you are amazing and you all ready have a Mexican heart :)
Hiya! Thank you.
I use Dove Intensive Repair shampoo & conditioner, dry it with a 100% cotton tshirt, throw a bit of sea spray + Organix coconut oil in it, then go to bed. If it’s a little limp in the AM, I use a an average no-crunch hairspray.
To straighten it, I just use an Argan Oil & a Chi straightener.
