Bloggers / STYLE CLIQUE: MEET ARIANA FROM LA CATRINA DE LA MODA!
Ariana is turning the Style Clique into a fashion democracy. We vote “si!”
How did the name “La Catrina de LA Moda” come to be? The name for my blog came to me when I was trying to combine my love for fashion, along with my love for Mexican culture and art. In English “La Catrina de LA Moda” means the female dandy of fashion.
How long have you been blogging? A year and a half, almost two years.
How is blogging changing the fashion industry? You no longer have to be a magazine editor, or a celebrity to have a place to share and express yourself with others. [It's] a new source of inspiration, just like magazines and other media that already existed before. Blogging has made fashion more democratic.
In your own words: Fun- eclectic- not too serious- always changing and always on a budget.
Who are your style icons? I love the Olsen sisters, Kate Bosworth…The list of current style icons can seriously go on forever. My all-time favorite lady of style is the one and only Gabrielle Coco Chanel. She was such a leader for women in every way possible.
What do you love about Forever21? I love that Forever 21 is affordable and accessible to everyone no matter their budget.
Online shopping vs. in-store? I love online shopping. There are always more options and choices.
What are you shopping for this fall? On my list: wine and rust colors, ankle boots with a small chunky heel, chunky and oversized sweaters to wear endlessly and to layer on for different looks (especially to wear with maxis) and I am also keeping a look out for metallics!
The F21 Shoot:
On the F21 Style Clique: I loved the fact that we all loved the pieces that each of us picked, however when styling those pieces, we all came up with truly unique outfit combinations.
Favorite piece from the new line? Ah! This is a tough question, I can never seem to narrow down anything to one pick because I easily fall in love with a lot of things at once. I have to say that I loved the striped midi body -con skirt because it is a new silhouette.
