Just M

Hi everyone! I’m Marilyn Anai Hernandez, originally from Belleville, NJ but now living in the most beautiful city, attending Pace University. I am not only extremely happy to finally share with all of you my lifestyle, fashion tips, and travel experiences but also so excited to do it alongside my best friend, Kate. My love for fashion started at a very young age and was always encouraged by my grandmother. Growing up I spent a lot of time with her, and I vividly remember our Sunday routines, one of my favorite childhood memories. She would sit on my bed, while I picked out and tried on an outfit for each day of the week, and helped me decide if I should wear it or not. She always said to me “Con tal que a ti te guste lo demas no importa hija”, which means “As long as you like it, the rest doesn’t matter”. This is a piece of advice that has stuck with me to this day. I believe there are no rules in fashion because everyone should feel happy and confident in what they are wearing.

To anyone who comes across DearManhattan, I hope you feel inspired and encouraged to do what makes you happy, whether it’s wearing white pants after Labor Day or chasing after your dream job because as long as you like it, the rest doesn’t matter.

XOXO,

Marilyn
