Thank you for introducing me to Desirée Velásquez, and her blog Fashionlingual (Fashion fanatic + bilingual gal = Fashionlingual) because she is Aca-Awesome! For example: while living a double life as an English teacher and fashion communications student in Madrid, she compiled an English-Spanish dictionary with fashion and beauty terms for fashionistas who find themselves in a Spanish speaking country or website. Desirée made it back to the states more fierce and fabulous than ever. Check out her Chicago street style.
WCW: How would you describe your personal style?
FL: My style is always changing, but if I had to break it down it’d look something like this: 20% trendy, 30% polished prep, 10% sexy, 20% romantic, 5% masculine and 15% classic chic.
FL: My footwear HAS to be comfortable if I’m relying on public transit. If it’s not and I need it, I’ll throw them in my bag and slip on upon arrival. Nothing is worse than standing and trying to balance on the “El” with tall stilettos that look fly, but pinch the heck out of your piggies!
