I can’t believe that it’s been one year since I started this incredible journey! Happy birthday to my baby, my pride, and joy. I’m over the moon and very proud of myself for putting on my big girl panties and deciding to start this fashion blog! It hasn’t been easy but it’s been worth every single step. I’m so happy I’ve been able to collaborate with such amazing people like AlectricVisuals and attend so many events, and was even asked to be a special guest blogger for the first time at the Fashom event I attended.
Now on to all the mushy-gushy stuff (I feel like I’m receiving an award! lol), I want to thank everyone – especially my friends and family who have pushed me and told me to follow my heart and dreams and never give up because I belong in this blogger world. I want to thank my mom and brother who put up with my annoying a**! and all my questions: “Does this outfit go with these shoes?” “Does this outfit look good together?” (lmao) 😀 To the most important person, the one I owe the biggest thank you to, is Jessica Rivas. The lady behind the lens, without her my blog would not be here and wouldn’t have the most amazing pictures it has today. I would be so lost without you and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you do for me and this blog. I love you and appreciate you so much. To all my love bugs (my followers), my blog would not be as successful as it is without you – thank you all for your constant support, means so much to me, I love you all!!!
On to the fashion portion, my specialty! I wanted to do a completely different look than what I usually go for. I wanted to choose a fancy, classy yet fabulous outfit. I went with this navy blue midi-skirt from Agaci which I instantly fell in love with. I was iffy because of the length and puffiness but the hell with it! My height isn’t going to stop me from wearing this gorgeous piece. For the top: I was debating on this top or a similar one in white lace and decided to stick with this one because I wanted the focus to remain on the skirt and shoes. These shoes are to die for … right? lol I wanted something more appropriate because of the fanciness of the skirt and since I didn’t have much color on, I went with a pop of color on the shoes. The jewelry i went for a very minimal touch because I was focused on the cup of mimosa (duh, it is my blog name) and of course, had to do the balloons and confetti – it’s a party!! Thanks again to everyone that has showed support and so much love, I appreciate it and can’t wait to continue to grow and collaborate on this catwalk.
Toodle Love Bugs,
