My name is Dyandra Raye, Stylist, Creative Director & Blogger sharing all things fashion, lifestyle & travel from my desktop to yours. Growing up with a serious style influence I noticed how deeply rooted both passions were to me. I started as my Mom’s guinea pig for her designs while hopping on flights to see the world with my Dad. Unknown to me then, fashion and travel would be a way to open my eyes and inspire my lifestyle.
After graduating from Spelman College, I turned my passions into a career and jumped head first into the fashion/retail industry. Wardrobe Styling was always the basis of my endeavors, starting with virtual clients and then graduating to coveted artists, magazine spreads and private clientele! Creative Directing went hand in hand, turning visions into reality from an artistic point of view. Along the way I learned the ins and outs of retail through my work with companies like Neiman Marcus, Robert Graham, and Forever 21.
Not too long after, I decided to merge my work experience with education and obtain a Masters in Global Fashion Enterprise. As much as fashion remained an integral part of my life, travel has always been my way to learn more about different cultures and their way of life. I’ve made it a point to visit some of my dream destinations such as Brazil and Thailand! While traveling I regularly document and reinterpret the fashion, architecture, culture as a source of unique inspiration.
Creating writing served as the door opener to a website and blog focused on living your best life through style. I’ve put all my knowledge together to share with you what I know about fashion, lifestyle, and travel! On this site you will find everything from how to re-create my latest outfit to full details on a recent trip to a download on how to build a workable wardrobe.
