Saturday Interview: Monica Briones 

Love love loved all of Monica’s answers! Monica and I met through mutual friends and tennis & student council contributed as well. Monica has a sense of style that is loud, outgoing, and daring. I admire the way she can put pieces together that usually wouldn’t, and make it work. Anyone who can pull off a full on faux fur coat or a red poncho, knows what they’re doing style wise. Monica is a genuinely kind and intelligent person who has a fashion sense that screams confidence and creativity. I want to thank Monica for being so patient and honest and being so easy to interview! Have a great weekend and stay fab! {Check out Monica and I’s Q&A and some looks of hers below}

18. On what advice she’d give to younger girls about fashion: “Fashion is a way to express yourself. Don’t wear things to fit in with friends or to show off the latest trends. Wear things that make you confident and represent who you are.”
