Check out The 10 Most Stylish People in Dallas 2017,  a fashion feature from D Magazine.

What I Do: “Mi Golondrina supports artisans and their traditions in Mexico to create a curated luxury line of clothing and unique pieces for home.”

Style Icons: “My main style icon is my mother. She dresses so beautifully and always knows how to wear color. Her closet is full of artisan-made clothing, and her collection of garments has been a constant source of inspiration. I’m inspired by everyone, though, especially when I travel.”

On the Run: “I am always wearing our newest pieces before they launch in our stores and online. I often pair the tops with denim and wear the dresses to work and about town. I want to make sure the fit is perfect and that our customers will enjoy wearing our pieces as much as I do. We have a pretty casual office, and I love seeing what everyone is wearing.”

What Inspires your Style Choices? “So many things: travel, for one, and old films. My husband and I travel a lot, and it sounds cliché, but I take inspiration from architecture, colors in nature, or even what women in a specific city are wearing. And in terms of films, I am a true romantic, so I love seeing stylish, glamorous pieces and transforming them for the modern woman.”

Style Goals: “Feminine but not fussy. Comfortable and cool.”

Weekend Look: “As a new mom, I like to be super comfortable around the clock, but especially on weekends and evenings. You can find me in jeans and comfy tees.”

Favorite Store: “I love Canary. They have the most beautiful selection of clothing and the best iced tea.”
