    With Love, Claudia

    Welcome back y’all! Alright so we are a few days away from Mothers Day and as a Mexican American I grew up celebrating two Mothers Day. In Mexico, Mothers Day is celebrated on May 10th, today! To celebrate, I decided to make today’s post a tribute to my grandmother. My grandmother passed away when I was about five or six, but I have always felt a really deep connection to her. I attribute all of my talents, goals, and dreams to her. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that creating clothing would be what I wanted to do for the rest of my life but as I…

    The First Monday in May

    Welcome back everyone! Alright so if you are a fashion aficionado or follow fashion then you know that the annual fashion exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum’s Costume Institute in New York was held yesterday. It is regarded as one of the biggest art events of every year and the part everyone looks forward to is the Met Gala which is basically the launch party. Every year the event revolves around a specific theme and the red carpet never disappoints. This years theme was a controversial one, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The overall exhibit is “designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the masterworks for religious art…

    Will Travel for Food

    Happy hump day y’all and welcome to the second day of May!! I hope you are all having a great week and enjoying life, I know I am! Today’s post is all about food, Mexican food that is. Sadly, South Carolina lacks in good Mexican food, every restaurant legit has exactly the same menu and they’re not even owned by the same person. It is so sad. Not to mention that a majority of the items on every menu aren’t even Mexican and everything has queso on it. I never knew queso existed until I got here and realized it’s slathered on almost every dish. But I digress. My deep…

    Twenty Six

    Welcome back y’all! It is officially the last day of April and seriously, where does the time go? Anyway, I celebrated my twenty sixth birthday last Wednesday and was pretty stoked. I am not one to dwell on the fact that I am getting older and am reaching my thirties because well, life is short and you just have to appreciate it for what it is, a gift. And dude, come on, twenty six is like a baby’s age. Now, when asked what my favorite color is I always give two responses: pink and tie-dye! Yes, tie-dye. Tie-dye is more than just a technique to me it is an expression…

    Sophisticated Yet Seductive Scents

    A new week full of possibilities and a new updated look! Happy Monday everyone! I am so excited to be back on my blogging game and decided that the best way to celebrate is through a sweet smelling post, if only you could actually transmit smell through the internet. Coco Chanel was once asked where one should apply perfume and her response was ladylike yet seductive, “where you want to be kissed.” I personally love wearing perfume and always apply two spritz right below my jawbone in the morning and at night and even spritz my clothes once a week. It is the best way to not only smell great…

    A Nasty Gal Kind of World

    Something I absolutely love about fashion is that you can do with it what you want. Styling outfits is more like playing dress up and shouldn’t be taken too seriously, otherwise you miss out on all the fun. One of my FAVORITE stores to shop is Nasty Gal. What I have always loved about Nasty Gal is they carry a variety of different styles and do not follow the herd, if that is what you are looking for then you can still find it on their site. But, if you like to take chances and experiment with different styles and look then Nasty Gal is a must. (I get commission…

    Practice Makes (Almost) Perfect

    They say “practice makes perfect” and while I don’t consider myself to be close to perfect, I will say that practice has helped me get that much closer. Last weekend I decided to embark on a project that has been quite daunting to me for the past few years. When I first started sewing I was very ambitious and would take on crazy sewing projects. Of course, because I was still learning and for the most part learning on my own, many of those sewing projects did not come out great. I never let that stop me.  As time went on I continued to sew but, focused on perfecting what…

    The Benefits of Customization

    Something that I have been completely obsessed with, since learning how to sew, is customizing my clothing to represent my style and personality. One of my favorite ways to do just that is to add patches and embroidery to clothing, such as jackets. I decided to take a camo jacket that I have had for a few years and add a variety of patches to it. Each patch represents me and some patches are handmade by me and a couple that I purchased through an online store called Hellbound. What I really like about this process is that I control what goes on the jacket and where. Aside from that,…
