Hello and welcome to my blog! My name is Michelle. I was born and raised in the Windy City aka Chicago. Aside from being a blogger, I’m also a student trying to finish my degree in English. I love literature as much as I love fashion so for me, being a blogger is the best of both worlds. I’m a sucker for dogs especially for mine! I like to call myself his fur-momma (ha!).
The name “The Nativestilo” actually came from a deep conversation with my best friend. At the time, my blog had a different name. I was venting to him about how my blog wasn’t going anywhere. He then asked me the million dollar question: what do you want your blog to be about. I remember telling him how I wanted my blog to be a place where people can go to and find their own inner “fashionista” side, to learn who they were as individuals, to inspire, and to grow. I also wanted to become more personal with my blog by showing who I literally was. That’s when I decided to clash my two identities together, being that I am a Mexican- American. Estilo in Spanish refers to style and native is referred, by the dictionary, as “being the place or environment in which a person was born or a thing came into being.” As I see myself blogging more and more, I feel like I am also finding out who I really am. A part of me feels like this is where I belong, this is what I was meant to do. Everyone has an objective in life and for me it’s helping you find your inner fashionista. This is my purpose, whether I influence one person or the world, to me it’s all significant.
My name is Michelle and I am The Nativestilo.
