Growing Up …..


Growing up I was never the one to follow other kids fashion styles. I wanted to stand out, be unique & have unusual trends. I wasn’t given the luxury to buy high end pieces as a kid, & even if I had the opportunity to i probably wouldn’t be happy with the clothing anyways.I grew up re-making and making my own clothes : from tops,jackets, shoes & backpacks.  At that time I didn’t know about “fashion” neither too much about brands. My fashion inspirations mainly came from reading books, magazines & watching the magic school bus . I knew i was different, but didn’t know why until kids started to make fun of my clothing and asked why my clothing was always “weird ” looking . I’m not going to lie to you , but sometimes my feelings got hurt . I got over it and I never stopped being me and since then I’m still making my own clothing. I believe that when you start something you fully believe in its grows with you for the rest of your life. It’s a beautiful experience you learn to cherish, treasure and to be PROUD of . Never let anyone dull your shine and always be ” Different” different can lead to many great adventures and one in a lifetime opportunities.

On another note , here’s my bloody red fringe crossover bag I designed . Inspired by the love I have for “Roses” & “Mazapan”  . I been extremely busy I forgot to treat myself to something of my very own . I love it and it’s all Me ❤🌹


New Journey ……


Happy Friday Everyone!

Today is definitely a Happy & Bittersweet Friday.

So let me share with you all a little story about me.

A very few of you know a bit about my personal life , And many don’t.  So let me start by sharing a little bit of what’s going on.

4 years ago I started working for an apparel manufacturing company to pursue my knowledge, skills and gain experience. I cannot mention the name of the company for security reasons, but this company was by far the best job I’ve ever had. This company was more then just a company, but family oriented and very close to heart.

Well sometimes in life things come to an end and change is needed. So this  March I decided to leave my full time job to pursue my passion in design and business for it was a hard decision to fulfill, but a very much needed decision that I needed to make sooner or later. Unfortunately I’m not a robot and I can’t manage a full time job, a full time business and aside of that take care of my 10yr old daughter. It becomes tiring, stressful and unhealthy. So with the help of my fiancé Carlos, professional advice and a months & months of planning I made the decision to spread my wings out and follow my heart.

I’m extremely excited and definitely looking forward to running, managing and designing for my own company/business RaggedyTiff. It’s seriously a dream come true to be able to do something you LOVE so much and spend  110% more time . That’s what excites me the most to be able to wake up everyday and hustle for what’s mine.

Back in 2013 when I made the choice to build a brand it was thoughtfully thought, but never knew how in the world I was going to do it. It was a scary step, but little by little it grew. Almost like a rose : When you want to grow some roses in your garden and in order to make sure they bloom they need care,attention, & love. And that’s what happens when you start a  brand!! You start from scratch and throughout the journey you see it bloom. It wont be easy at all and it wont be impossible either , You just need to be passionate and ready for the ups and downs.

With that being said !

I hope you all got a little inspired and motivated to go out to the world and get what’s yours, because nothing in this world will be handled to us! YOU have to take action, work hard & believe in your passion ( Never forget that)

So what’s next!

So much you guys!! And one of them is my upcoming  Pop-Up Showcasing my new Summer #fridaporvida  next month June 30th . I will be having my new pieces for a whole month at this shop where you can come and shop, chat & get inspired! This shop will also consist of art pieces from talented artist. Goodies from pastries to fresh flowers ! I’m so excited for you all to come and witness this in person.

1st Pop-Up is June 30th ( Details on this flyer)

with special guest : @Aliciasdelicias



Hope to see you all!!!

Love: Jess.R


Dear Mami….


In Honor of Dia De Las Madres ( 10 De Mayo)

In Mexico we celebrate Dia  De Las Madres on May 10th & in honor I wanted to post something very special to heart. I don’t always post anything personal on here, but there’s days like this that have a meaning & I wanted to share with you all. This picture was probably taken on a summer weekend in the coastal beaches of San Diego. I was about 3yrs old and living the life of a toddler. I don’t know if you can see, but if you look closer I’m holding onto stuffed animals and perhaps a baby doll toy. I was never a Barbie lover, however now I’m one vintage barbie collector. I love collecting 1960’s barbies mostly limited edition ones. I guess people really do change throughout the years.

So why did I choose this picture over other pictures ?

Well …..

It shows my mom, myself, the beach & a huge heart my dad drew on the sand. Its my Parents initials and its my dad writing so I wanted to make sure it included the 3 of us. My Parents have always lived near the ocean and my mom always likes going till this day. I remember my dad use to take both of us for pick nicks, Cinco de Mayo, 4th of July , Fishing and Surfing. It was always ” Vamos a la Playa”

This picture brings up so many beautiful memories with my mom and my family that’s why I chose this picture. It also reminds me that a mothers love is so strong and unconditional from when you are young to now.

Remember to always appreciate your mother & father . Mothers Day and Fathers Day should be everyday.

To my Angel… Selena Quintanilla





3/30/16 – 1:18pm

Dear Selena,

Just wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule to say few words and to see how are you doing from above. I know its been a while, but I want you to know that I still listen to you almost everyday or at least 5 days out of my week. From Pandora to my iMusic playlist on my phone, You are everywhere I go. & Yes I still watch the #selena movie at least every 3 months or so…. but what can I say my daughter Tiff and I love the movie.

There’s also plenty of great memories of you surrounding my head at the moment. One that really sticks to me is when I sang Bidi Bidi Bom Bom at a 5 De Mayo carnival in San Diego at the age of 9yrs old . I knew the song by heart and I wanted to use my new cowboy boots my mom bought me at the swap meet .That’s one of many memories I have since I was a little girl. Now 29yrs I still know the song by heart, but I don’t wear cowboy boots anymore lol. As you get older in life things and people change, but I think there’s certain things in life that remain in our hearts. Selena La Reina Del TexMex is one of them. No matter if the years go by your legacy and spirit still lives in our hearts. Or at least in my heart.

I also wanted to let you know that here in Los Angeles, Ca there will be a #Selenafangathering on your birthday April 16 at this gallery location call La Plaza De La Raza. Everyone is excited to gather and celebrate your birthday dear. Wished you can be here and see it in person, but I know wherever you are you will be here in spirit dancing Bidi Bidi Bom Bom  with us. Its my first time attending the gathering and I’m thrilled to see the whole event , I’ll make sure to post pics so that you can see the event.

OH! & I almost forgot to tell you I’m designing something very special for you to wear! Its probably the most beautiful piece I have ever designed, I have a feeling you will love it. I been working very hard to make this piece simply breathtaking for you & I hope you love it as much as I do. I been posting BTS pics and videos on my social media little by little & as soon as im done with the piece ill make sure I post a picture for you to see. The Gown is call “Como La Flor” inspired by your song. I made sure I used very unique and exquisite fabrics so that its stands out. About 80% of the work is all hand sewn and handcrafted and the rest is machine sewn. Its coming along great and I’m excited to display it at the Selena Fan Gathering next month. I’m a little nervous to have it on display, but this is for you and I’m proud of making something special for someone that means a lot to me.


I hope you find this letter fine. & remember that everything we do here for you is because of you. Until we meet again!.

Con Mucho Amor : Jessica Resendiz

P.S I also made this frame for you and to share with the world. I wanted to make something incorporating red roses, unique font, and your smile on this frame. The image of you is not mine so don’t worry I wont be making any merchandise out of it , due to respect and rights. Hope you like it ! ❤
