For these five fabulous ladies, fashion isn’t just a state of mind; it’s a lifestyle.

Bold & Beautiful
When she’s not shaping the reputation of new O.C.-based luxury real estate group Ocean Collective as its public relations director, publicist Johanna Felix is spicing up her fun and flirty wardrobe.

The best way to describe my approach to fashion is… to be elegant, unexpected and playful.
I feel fabulous when I wear… anything from Cushnie et Ochs. It’s classic but edgy.
A piece I wear that empowers me is… a well-fitted jumpsuit.
The best style advice I ever received was… Dressing well is an act of respect for those around you. I don’t believe in being overdressed, and I love to delight others with my fashion choices.
I never leave the house without… earrings and a smile.
My secret weapon when it comes to fashion is… my tailor.
My ultimate fashion splurge is… a shopping trip to Europe.
I look best in… clean lines, bright colors and fitted silhouettes that embrace my Puerto Rican curves.
Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds, my birthstone.
