Hey! So Glad You're Here.
Thank you for stopping by my colorful little space on the Internet. Originally established in
2014, Iridescent Scarab began as a fashion and wellness blog and has now evolved into an outlet for sharing my passions in both fashion and graphic design. After going through an identity crisis and feeling utterly lost during the pandemic, I ended up receiving a lot of clarity on what sets my soul on fire and what doesn't drain my batteries. Through taking courses in fashion at Santa Monica City College and from receiving feedback from my teacher, I realized that I wanted my blog to be more similar to a fashion magazine, more of a creative and educational space to share how I put outfits together, and more of a place to share what currently inspires me in the world of clothing, shoes, and accessories. I learned how to expand my mind a bit, think more outside the box and I have a lot of creativity bursting inside me that I'm ready to share with the world.
Though I remain passionate about my mental health and taking care of it will always be a part of my life, the primary focus of my blog is now primarily on shopping guides and sharing my wish-lists and ideal wardrobe pieces in a format that is half like a blog and half like a magazine. I do however envision a future of this blog where I will be implementing more wellness posts and inviting other content creators to contribute by expanding into a larger community but for now, I am working on staying in the present and this is where I am at. I hope you enjoy my many hours of hard work, research, curation, and authentic self-expression and that you leave my page feeling inspired and excited about fashion. I've always dreamed of changing the world and this platform will be where I start.

Aesthetics, Symbolism & Values
-The current theme of my website is inspired by fashion magazines and all of the content I got to marvel over when studying fashion at Santa Monica College. At one point I aimed to stay away from bright colors but I couldn't make that happen and I'm glad because that's part of my brand. The background of my website is a collage that I made myself from ripped magazine pieces from Vogue and other magazines.
-I get a lot of questions about why I use the scarab as my blog name and symbol. It is because I've always been fascinated with the Ancient Egyptians and the scarab symbol keeps me connected to my own spirituality. It represents rebirth, transformation, protection, and good luck. The word iridescent is used because I believe in inclusivity and embracing every color. Whether it be skin tones or representative of emotions, iridescence to me represents diversity and acceptance.
