If you’ve been following lavidaBlue on snapchat, Instagram, or Facebook, then you’ve already heard the big news... I’m officially collaborating with Telemundo’s news anchor, Silvana Effio, as her stylist for the five o’clock and ten o’clock news. This is such a huge opportunity and I’m so very grateful for the chance to live out my dream of not only becoming a stylist, but to use my clothing line to complete different looks.
The first time Silvana showcased her lavidaBlue look was last week in the “La Flor” Bodysuit. Listed under our Slay collection. It was fun to see her put a twist on the sheer lace bodysuit. She used a black tank top under the lace and wore it with a high waist black midi skirt, black tights, and black pumps.
As some of you may know, I worked for Telemundo Utah as one of their reporters a few years ago. The Telemundo staff are the most genuine, kind people I’ve ever worked with, also the most professional. I left Telemundo on very good terms, so when they heard I started my own business, they were authentically happy for me and couldn’t wait to lend a hand. Being Hispanic, I noticed there aren’t a lot of online clothing stores that cater to both the Latino AND American community. I started naming our items in Spanish while keeping the descriptions in English (Hey, I’m only half Latina!) Our customer service is bilingual and I’m working on posting in Spanish and English when it comes to our social media. Now that I think about it, this blog post should be written in Spanish. Hmmm.
I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you Silvana and the big guy at Telemundo Utah! Your authenticity and generosity mean the world to me. I won’t let you down. To catch lavidablue on Telemundo Utah, tune in at 5PM and 10PM.
Thanks for reading this week’s blog. Nos vemos pronto! (We'll see you soon).
