While how we feel on the inside shouldn’t be defined by who we are, it does! Wardrobe is personality for many people. Have you ever felt so crappy that while you didn’t want to get out the house (you absolutely had to), you threw on something that would cheer you up?
I'm here to tell you, that is absolutely normal! Iconic Chica got the chance to speak to fashionista Jessica Otero of modaotero.com. She shares with us one of her favorite quotes by Sharon Haver, “Style is not about being boring and predictable. It’s about having fun in your attire and feeling fantastic about yourself."
Jessica Otero is an overall artist, stylist, writer, traveler, and philanthropist. See more at modaotero.com.
