  3. You are seriously so inspiring!


  4. It's refreshing to see a Latina carving a niche for herself doing what you apparently enjoy. You are beautiful, graceful, obviously ambitious and know how to make fashion fun and affordable. I picked up an issue of Latina Cosmo and discovered Viva Fashion. I'm just a little sad I've missed out for four years. Better late than never! I look forward to your fashion inspiration. I'm from Miami and a graduate of Florida International University myself. It's great to see fellow alumni working hard, creating their success, having fun, helping others and all while looking great. You are an inspiration for latinas and ALL women to put their best foot (in an open toed spring/summer wedge) forward. ;-)

  5. I love your site! its easy to follow and to the point. I love the classy look youve got going on! Going to need to bring this into my wardrobe! Thanks a lot
