My name is Aminta Iriarte and I own and maintain Clothes and Fashion!
I grew up in Caracas, Venezuela and moved to the U.S.A. in 2005. I first lived in Tampa, Florida, and now I reside in the greatest city in the world: New York City. Living in New York had been a dream of mine since a young age. Even before I knew I wanted to work in fashion I knew I wanted to live in NYC.
I started Clothes & Fashion in Florida in October of 2010. It started as a way for me to share my knowledge on styling oneself. The growth of personal style blogs made me want to share my outfits with whoever was interested in seeing them. For me, clothes are a form of self-expression and in a way, art. I still write fashion tips and idea segments because I want to be able to help anyone who wants to be helped. With my blog I hope I’ve started a campaign for a better-looking world.
MY FASHION PHILOSOPHY. “Every day is showtime!” I believe in buying those killer heels even though you’ll spend half the night sitting down and you’ll walk home with them in your hand. I believe in bright colors and in the slimming effects of black. I believe in dressing for one’s shape and in showing off one’s best attributes.I’m a freelance writer, fashion stylist, image consultant and lover of all things beautiful.
