Hi! Let’s start off telling you a little about myself. My name is Suzannah Meza. I’m 19 going on 20, (Taurus Gang for life) and I’m a Fashion journalism sophomore at Columbia College Chicago. I’m have a dad who is Mexican and crossed the border when he was 18. So I have a bit of Latina in me which it explains why I’m very sassy. I have my mom who is just from Michigan, so she’s just white (I love her don’t get wrong haha). I have a kitten named Boo (she’ll be featured on her soon) and she basically is my child. I love to write poetry/short stories and I also love, love fashion…that’s kinda why I’m majoring in it.
I love music like Etta James to Pasty Cline to Marvin Gaye. But I also am obsessed with my favorite band EVER aka Led Zeppelin and then any other band that your dad loves. I also am very obsessed with our Mother Mary-Lana Del Rey. I also change it up, like I love A$AP Rocky, Chance, and Post Malone. So my music taste is kind of all over the place. I own a lot of vinyl more than probably your dad owns.
I am kind of true crime/ psychological nerd and if I wasn’t doing fashion then I’d probably be doing criminal psychology. Ask me about any serial killers or mass killings that happened before the early 2000’s and I got you!
I love TV shows such as The Office (I’ll quote it a lot), Parks and Rec, Gossip Girl, Stranger Things, Bobs Burgers, Riverdale, and Rick and Morty!
My favorite films are any teen 90’s films you can think of, any Wes Craven, and any John Hughes films.
So now into why I created this blog. Basically I’m a Taurus with a want for a Taurus lifestyle, which if many of you know that means I’m pretty materialistic. The harsh reality is that I’m broke as fuck! I work but that money goes to keeping my beautiful kitten alive and food. It sucks especially when you live in the city where it’s expensive to even breath.
I decided to make this blog because well..I’m really pissed. You follow all these beauty bloggers who promise they are “just like you” but jet off to Paris and get paid to wear a pair of pants. Well I’m not going to be like that because I actually know how it feels to have a mental breakdown in the vegetable isle because how can you afford to eat or scrounging to get color corrector that costs your soul at CVS because you have a gigantic hickey on your neck and have to see your parents in a few hours.
This blog isn’t meant for girls who can afford to shop at Zara or eat vegan (no hate for vegans though) or even travel. This is for my girls out there who don’t care that this frozen pizza has so much processed sugar. It’s all we can afford and it tastes good, Jessica!
This blog will take inspiration from celebrities, decades, music, and more in creating CHEAP outfits. This blog will also talk about other struggles sad, dorky, single, broke girls deal with, such as men, college, zodiac signs, friends, family, annoying art school kids and more men!
So let’s pour that third glass of that $8.00 wine and cry because, we can be broke, anxious and lonely together!
