We had the good fortune of connecting with Briana Trevino and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Briana, what role has risk played in your life or career?
I think risk-taking is essential for everyone. Life happens outside of your comfort zone and some of the smallest risks have the biggest payoff. My move to LA in itself was a huge risk, I did not initially know where I would work, but I knew I was prepared and it would pay off for my blog. I was right. I think you have to always evaluate and try to make the best possible decision for the best payoff. That could mean stepping into the unknown. Each blog post could even be considered a small risk because in today’s world everything is out there to be judged and what you say can ultimately come back to you.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
As a blogger and content creator, I try to incorporate a higher-fashion niche for women who cannot always afford it. Being from a Texas city, I know what it looks like to be wearing clothes from two seasons ago that has dripped down to the department stores and not know the difference or care. My blog is for the girls who want more. It can be really hard to stand out & just keep pushing through when you spend so much time caring about what you put out there and other girls doing less can get more recognition. At the end of the day, it’s not about that, it’s about me being consistent and spreading my message because there is a girl out there who truly loves fashion and knows she can chase more than what she is surrounded by. I want people to know that I work hard for this, I keep myself on strict content schedules & I love creating. I want people to be more and do more and I want to be an inspiration for that.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First, would probably be brunch at tower bar, I love the aesthetic. Then I would take them shopping on Melrose. The real shopping though can be found at Wasteland, Crossroads and the boutiques closer to Fair Fax. I love a good vintage find. Hiking is always a must and I love Runyon or for a first-timer, the hike to the Hollywood sign is usually killer. For a really good meal, Delilah’s is a must and you gotta hit WeHo for a good time! The Melrose flea market on Sunday & a quick beach trip in Malibu is how I would finish it off.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d like to recognize my parents who do not always understand what I do but support me anyway.
