From those who don't know... My blog name, design name and Brand is named after my 2 Grandmothers. Lizzi (Elizabeth Lewis) passed away when I was 17yrs old. Kay (Kay Francis Nunley) is still living and is 75years old.
My inspiration steams from them both! My Grandmom Lizzi was a seamstress and a neat, well dressed woman! Kay inspired me through vintage pieces that were given to me from her at a young age. My Grandmom Kay was the first person to take me thrift store shopping when I was a little girl. From then I fell in love with anything Vintage!! When I go to my Grandmom Kay's house I can always count on leaving with a new pair of earrings, an old broach of hers, bag/clutch, etc. I have a habit of going straight to her room and asking "Is there anything you don't want Grandmom"?

This past Friday night I had the pleasure to attend a website launch which two of my friends showcased. This party was to celebrate and view their new website and to also receive feedback from those who attended. After viewing the new site we were encouraged to write down comments/suggestions about their site. DeAnna Allen and Diane Godlewski who are the founders of A Styl'D Life have partnered up to create this groundbreaking company which offers unlimited possibilities to embracing an individuals authentic style. Their newly developed website can be found at www.astyldlife.com. They both can be found on twitter under @Fashion_Made (DeAnna) and @diEMPIRE (Diane).

Texture, Color, Design and Patterns are some of the features that attract me and here is a taste of My INSPIRATION!
Thursday, May 5, 2011
During the past few weeks with help of the nice weather I have enjoyed going out and spotting things that excite me artistically! I went to "The Lakes", which is near the Wachovia Center and off of South Broad Street. I was just out enjoying the weather and taking a walk when I noticed the skateboarders enjoying the weather as well. I come here often, but this particular day inspired me to consider incorporating the art of the graffiti in an upcoming photo-shoot. Small moments like this make me really appreciate art in the city of Philly and the small moments and people who contribute to it.
