My name is Gabriela Tena...

... and I am a freelance wardrobe stylist. I also love to blog about fashion and travel, and last year I launched my first capsule collection. I majored in Visual Communications at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise. I also have a B.A. in Communications with a minor in Art History from the College of Charleston.

I was born in Spain but raised in Newport Beach, CA. Constant travel between the U.S. and Spain in my childhood imparted on me a fascination with different cultures and fashion, from the gypsies of the south of Spain to the surf culture of Southern California, the influence of which can be seen in my own sense of style today.

I believe that fashion can be an expression of one’s own individuality — and that you don't have to break the bank to dress in a way that brings out your truest beauty.
