Thank you for visiting If I Was A Stylist, I started this blog in the summer of 2011 because I have a passion for how stars dress on the red carpet and one day I plan to be one of the major celebrity stylists like Rachel Zoe (Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner), Brad Goreski (Stacy Keibler, Jessica Alba, Rashida Jones), Ilaria Urbinati (Nina Dobrev, Bradley Cooper, Krysten Ritter), and Jennifer Rade (Angelina Jolie, Jada Pinkett Smith, Katherine McPhee.)
I fell in love with the styling aspect of fashion in 2008 when BRAVO premiered its hit series ‘The Rachel Zoe Project.’ Watching Rachel and her then assistants Brad and Taylor create the looks for Hollywood’s elite for events like the Academy Awards, the Cannes Film Festival, the MET Ball, and movie premieres.
I always knew that I would go into the fashion industry and as I always thought I would design but I can not sew to save my life even after several lessons and attempts. So when I found the styling career path I realized that what I was born to do. I graduated in December 2015 from Florida Gulf Coast University where I am studied Communication with a Public Relations concentration. I am currently living and working in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and I really hope that you enjoy the blog!
