I find myself checking the weather app less than before as the days go by. Finally I can feel that warmer weather and breezy wind that doesn’t freeze my fingers as I walk. I look in my closet and see there’s only coats, scarfs, and more coats.
It was my first winter in New York, y’all know that. But, I realized the weather transitioned to spring smoothly and I wasn’t even ready, or my closet wasn’t ready!
I partnered up with Grana
to style some of their new collection pieces for Spring and come up with two different styles that I find myself showcasing more this year.
For the first look I’m styling a very chic look wearing simple light-washed denim
with their latest irish linen shirt
and some white statement sneakers. This idea was inspired a lot by how me and my father used to dress like in D.R. to go out for a sunday funday. The linen shirt has a round distinct collar style, it’s breathable and it doesn’t itch your body at all.
It’s our birthday! We have officially been launched for 1 year already. CPWEARS turns 1, Whaaat!
What was once a dream is now a reality guys. There’s so much to be grateful for and all of you to thank, specially for your amazing support and love.
Behind this career path as bloggers we tend to overcome many obstacles that most of you guys don’t know about. First of all, I started blogging back in Dominican Republic, an island where only female bloggers were recognized and male bloggers couldn’t even think of existing because of how close-minded our society is.
I remember being back and forth thinking if whether or not I should have taken the decision of renaming my instagram and starting to post pictures about the daily outfits that I came up with to go to work and for school. At first, my family was totally against it, they didn’t like the way I was dressing up and my friends made fun of me for taking pictures everyday in my family’s business garage.
I decided to open my website because I wanted to have my own portal. Social media platforms come and go all the time, but having your own website makes it professional, and adds longevity to your work. I always dreamt of opening the doors for more bloggers and follow the footsteps of so many colleagues that are now my friends from all over the world.
This is a blog purely made of a flame that is lit inside of me, it’s called passion. I dreamt so much about doing what I was born to do. I love inspiring, writing, sharing my creativity and the art of dressing up by moving cultural and societal barriers along the way. Today I can say I made it past my first year as an official “blogger” and it hasn’t been easy at all, but it sure has been worth it. I just can’t wait to see where this journey will take me, and I hope to see each and everyone of you in it! I love reading your comments, your DMs, and even each like you add to my pictures. Please consider this bouquet of red roses as a gift from myself to you.
