Today we’d like to introduce you to Cecilia Montano.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Cecilia. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I have always been drawn to fashion since I was younger, so about two years ago, I started an account on Instagram called “@YourStyleInstinct”, where I was able to post my different outfits and how I styled my wardrobe. Little by little, my account started to grow and small companies wanted to collaborate with me as a blogger. About a couple of months later, I opened my website now, officially as a blogger, where I can review the product and talk more in-depth about my fashion sense. Currently, my business as a young influencer and blogger is growing more each day, where I have gotten the chance to collaborate with different brands, such as DENIZEN by Levi’s. On the other hand, I’m also attending University studying fashion design, and pursuing my dream to become a designer in the future.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Luckily, I’ve been so blessed to have family and friends that support me in every step of this journey, and so far it has been a smooth road, but there’s a lot more path coming in the future. And for all those women out there who want to start blogging, I truly recommend to be brave on starting something new and innovative; don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone, because you never know what great things are waiting ahead.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Your Style Instinct – what should we know?
I work as an influencer and blogger in the areas of fashion, lifestyle and travel industry; where different brands in these areas, send me a several of their products so I can review, promote and styled them in my own unique way. I have only been part of this business for a couple of years and by now one of my most proud accomplishments as a blogger is that I got the chance to collaborate with a brand called DENIZEN by Levi’s twice! Also, I recently got the chance to attend an event sponsored by the brand Got Milk, where the winner of Top Chef Latino Claudia Sandoval cooked dinner for us! That was an experience I will carry with me the rest of my life.
In addition, I think the thing that makes me unique is my sense of style, of how I can take one simple piece of clothing and turn it into the most stylish outfit ever. The key is to think outside the box and make it bold!
Which women have inspired you in your life?
Since I was younger I have always been drawn to all the social media platforms and how many people my age at that time ( I was 13) were doing amazing stuff, such as being a YouTuber and winning in award shows. So, I thought “If they can do it, why can’t I?”. I started getting really involved in the Twitter fandom community and updating my followers with the latest gossip and trends. A couple of months later, I got an Email from a Youtube Channel called “Awesomeness TV”; where they wanted me to audition to be the host of a new series about celebrities. I didn’t get the part, but since that moment I knew I wanted to be some kind of “influencer” to show the world my passion and all the things I was able to do with my sense of fashion. Time went by, and I started my Instagram account, and a little while later, I opened my website where I’m currently posting constantly about the latest fashion trends and outfit ideas.
