In one sentence, tell us what you do:

I am the Fashion Editor of Le City Kitty, who also manages other bloggers by day as Socialyte Collective and NYLON Magazine’s Chief Blogmother.

Hometown:

Bronx, New York

Current Location:

Brooklyn, New York

Zodiac Sign:

Double Scorpio

Favorite pair of shoes:

A pair of Alexander Wang ‘Noemi Combat’ booties I got on sale at OAK.

Beauty Secret:

Pamper your skin! It is absolutely vital I have a clear completion. I try not to wear makeup when I don’t have to just so I can allow my skin to reap the benefits of my favorite moisturizer and eye cream.

Favorite Color:

Can I say black? Because it’s black. So simple, so chic, so easy AND it makes you look thinner.

The sun or the moon?:

The moon. Even partially covered by navy clouds, some nights, I obsessively stare with heart shaped eyes. *Queue Franky Valli, “Can’t Take My Eyes off of You”.

Do you speak any other languages?:

As a Latin woman, no. It’s quite sad actually. I don’t speak Spanish, but I understand it. Typical Puerto Rican from New York.

How many tattoos do you have?:

As of today, I have 26 tattoos ⎯ and counting.

A song you could listen to forever?:

I could listen to “Loose Lips” by Kimya Dawson, forever. It is just a rad song and always puts me in a good mood. I love a fun song I can sing to. Second on that list is “Vampire” by Ansty Pants, or pretty much the entire ‘Juno’ soundtrack.

Who or what influences your personal style?:

I am constantly influenced by boss babes, Caroline De Maigret, Miroslava Duma, Phoebe Philo, Taylor Tomasi Hill and Tasya van Ree. They slay me with their impressive style and sway me with their talents.

Who or what inspires you the most?:

New York inspires me, day in and day out. There is always so much going on here, my eyes are constantly falling in love.

Who’s your #WomancrushWednesday?:

Typically tattooed babes. I really appreciate a pretty girl covered in great ink.

Who’s your #MancrushMonday?:

Sterling Archer. You’re welcome.

Words of wisdom to aspiring Boss Babes:

Keep it real, FOREVER. No one likes a phony.

Tell us what you’re wearing in the pictures:

I’m wearing an H&M Melange Wool Coat, Zara V-neck tee, J Brand jeans, a vintage silk scarf I picked up in Boston, H&M and Bing Bang Rings, J.Crew exclusive Vans, and a super cool Gigi clutch I was gifted by my rad friend Jessi. It says “Shit “ on it.
