I had the opportunity to meet this lovely fashionista during Fashion Week 2013 in NYC and it’s so inspiring to see her journey as a fashion blogger for A Love Affair With Fashion! I wasn’t in attendance for Winter Fashion Week 2014, but I was able to catch up with Naty Michelle and get her to spill some of her secrets of success with us! Read on to see what other love affairs she shares!
How would you describe your brand/image?
My blog is all about relatable & affordable fashion. I try my best to show that personal style isn’t about the brands you wear. It’s about what you can create and how you can work with what you have. But beyond that, I just want to be a positive and inspiring voice for others to go after their dreams. There is so much room for all of us to succeed and it all starts with the right mentality.
Who is your fashion/lifestyle/business icon?
I don’t really have one in particular. I am just very drawn to motivated individuals. I love to see others succeed and learn about their own personal journeys because it keeps me inspired. I think it’s important to surround yourself with people who have a similar vision and are also striving for success. It’s great energy to be around.
How does branding and creativity inspire your business?
I am extremely inspired by creativity in all of its forms. When it comes to branding, it really gives me the opportunity to think outside of the box and come up with ideas that will set me apart from everyone else.
Do you incorporate branding in your personal life?
You never know who you are going to meet and where. Opportunities can come at any time and I always want to be prepared. So I do my best to keep that in mind at all times.
Do you have any lifestyle (fashion, interior design, event planning) secrets or tips?
I know this sounds cliché, but just stay true to yourself in all that you do. Let your personality shine through your work. People will acknowledge you for your passion and creativity. Take risks and don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. That is where all the magic happens!
This fashionista definitely stays true to her style and her budget! Something that we can learn from, as fashion is not all about high-end designers! You can find LUXE in any price range, don’t believe us…just peruse her blog A Love Affair With Fashion!
