Talking to: Luisa Verdee from Green's Life Diary

 Luisa, Luisa, Luisa. She's approachable, fun, casual and unpretentious. If you had to bottle fun minimalism into a stylish Hispanic bottle you'd have Luisa. Definitely a veteran in the blogosphere; she's been around since 2010 when the fashion/style blogging world was still full of vacancies and filled with girls in pretty dresses with boyfriends who had fancy pants SLRs. When you read Green's Life Diary, it's kind of like listening to one of those cool-without-trying-girls talk and tell you about her day but in the way that includes everyone surrounding her, you feel me?
What got you into the world of blogging?
I wanted to create a place where I could share all my thoughts and find people who liked the same things I like. My first contact with the blogosphere was Andy Torres’s blog, and I found it because of Elle’s magazine.

 Who are your favorite fashion bloggers?
Right now I love Daniela from Nany’s Klozet, Adriana from Fake-leather and Johanna from Sketchbook Six.

 If you could have dinner with any of the biggest names in fashion, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Grace Coddington; I love her work, her attitude and her sense of fashion.

When it comes to make-up and hair what are your favorite looks and styles?
Usually I don’t wear make up, but I love Smokey eyes, and for hair I love curly hair.

What is the fashion scene like in your city? Does this influence the way you dress?
Fashion is directly related with culture, and the city where I live is one of the most multicultural cities in the world. We love color, mixing textures and patterns, I feel that the Mexican’s are not afraid of “too much” and that’s what I love! Minimalism is really nice and chic, but being able to mix a lot of textures, colors and patters is what excites me the most.

 What were your favorite trends from the 1960s to the 1990s and why?
Definitely the 80’s is my favorite year, the minis, the beginning of the leggings, the shoulder pads and the oversized tops are trends that totally changed the path of fashion.

Are there any trends this year that you're in love with and any that you'd like to see die?
I have a hate-love relationship with the black and white trend, I love it because is chic, for everybody and is easy to create thousands of looks. But I hate it because I am getting bored of the same. Also I am in love with the hologram sunglasses trend! I find it very funny and youthful.

Lastly, what is the best piece of advice you've ever received and from whom?
Have fun and enjoy everything you do, being happy is your choice. And it came from one of my best friends.

 Find her on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and don't forget to stalk her Instagram.
