"I never have casual days" says Montoya."I grocery shop in an outfit like this. It's not even a conscious thing, really, it's just how I feel comfortable. I feel comfortable expressing myself through fashion and always have."

The Ray-Ban shades that Montoya has are not the typical wayfarer model; these are a vintage German style from the 1940s. "I love sunglasses and have been feeling the circular spectacles lately," says Montoya.

Montoya prefers to use this natural jasmine oil instead of traditional perfume. Although she has a hippie spirit, she also has a nice black leather Gucci wallet, a find at Buffalo Exchange.

Style analysis: Stella Montoya displays how you can mix and match to create your own aesthetic. The animal-print dress in tandem with the fox tail on her purse make her stand out as a ferocious best in the concrete jungle. The red lips match her red boots, and the hat adds a touch of a vintage rock and roll. All of this is topped with teal-colored locks that make Montoya feel like a mermaid. From rocker to animal to mermaid, style can be anything you wish, even combining elements you wouldn't think go together, but somehow still work. The fox is out of the bag!

Don't be afraid to mix genres and ideas to create your own look, Denver.
