Hi everyone! My name is Maria, an accountant living in sunny Florida with my husband Mike. I’m a wife, a mother to two fur babies, and a little sister to four big brothers.

I started The Classified Chic as a creative outlet; a place to document all the things I love. I’ve always had an interest in art and design, fashion being one of my passions since I was a little girl. I attribute this mostly to my mother, she is an amazing woman, who taught me to sew early on in life. Her mentorship has given me an admiration of so many things, everything from fashion to food to decorating to gardening. She is my best friend, and I love her tremendously. Most importantly, she taught me that life is about enjoying each moment because it’s a precious gift.




Another key thing to note about me is my sweet tooth. My nephew Doniven named a diet after me – The Maria Diet (otherwise known as the all Cs diet). It consists of cookies, cake, ice cream, and cheesecake. Oh, and, anything chocolate is a must! All kidding aside, I do love chocolate. You will find sweet recipes sprinkled in here and there, like this one.




I also love animals, and my two puppies hold a special of place in my heart. My two little ones are: a Miniature Schnauzer named Bailey (aka Bailey-Boo or Boo-Bear) and a Miniature Australian Shepard named Brody (aka Doodles or Captain White-Paw). So, yes, I have three men in my life; my husband, Bailey, and Brody. The three of them make me smile each and every day, from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep. I am so very thankful to them, my friends, and family for all their love and support. I feel truly blessed.





Thank you so much for reading! I hope you enjoy my creative musings.

Xo, Maria

  1. Maria, I read your About page and knew I had to follow you. I used to be a personal trainer but I, too, love chocolate. I scrolled down and saw your fur babies, especially the mini-Schnauzzer and that was it. I was searching for the follow. I have a mini-Schnauzzer named Ozzy. I love drawing fashion illustrations. I’m looking forward to reading your posts in 2015.

  6. Your site looks interesting. I am not much for following fashion but I would say that you tend to like the classic styles and I think you have chosen well, in my opinion. I would say that you might tend towards the european style, but then I spend several months in France each year so I am used to seeing the difference. I’ll have to come back and take a more detailed look at your food page, it interests me since I cook or play chef, if you like.


  7. You are gorgeous. Love your blog although being on a diet, will be avoiding your yummy food section…:-) Looking forward to reading more. Thank you so much for following my blog. As a new blogger, it means a lot to me. Have a great weekend. x
