"You inspired me to wear coral with green."

BeChic reader inspired by our style post! By Mercedes Sanchez

There's nothing more gratifying than meeting my readers and hearing firsthand that my blog inspires them! That's exactly what happened when Alejandra Ramos (left) introduced herself at the Cosmo for Latinas party and mentioned reading my Mixing High and Low Fashion article.

"I loved how you combined coral and green," says Ramos. "I would not think of combining those two colors together, but I saw how you did it and that's what inspired my outfit tonight."

Ramos wore a knee-length, curve-hugging coral dress from Lauren by Ralph Lauren. And talk about mixing high and low! Her chic heels are from Christian Siriano for Payless!

"To me, being chic means wearing something that makes you feel amazing and confident. It's having the courage to be bold and try new things."
