Let me introduce you: Miss Rylee Jade

Dear lovely readers, are you ready to meet the next big Fashion Designer? Well let me introduce you: Miss Rylee Jade. She is a very inspiring, creative, friendly and open minded person. I asked her 6 questions and here are her answers.
Tell me something about yourself.
I was Born in Bangor Maine, and I grew up in a town called Holden which has one stop light, one store, and two cops in the whole town. I live down a dirt road in the middle of nowhere. I love it. I went to college in Boston and got my associates degree in Fashion Design.
When and how did your passion for fashion/design start?
My mom said I have always had a passion for fashion. She said when I was little I always wore a tutu and a leotard, and she couldn't get me to wear anything else. So I guess by a young age I had established my own look. My mom also said I would call people out in public if I didn't like something they were wearing, this is when I was 3 or 4 years old. I would never do that now!

What do you want to do after you finish college?
I graduated College in the spring of 2013, and now I just want to live my life and see where it takes me. I'm going to continue designing and I would love to have a business where I can work at home in my own studio. That way I can just be making stuff all the time!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
In 5 years I hope to be doing what I love.
How would you describe your style?
My style changes constantly! I don't think I have a specific type of style, I just like what I like.

Who or what inspires you?
People who inspire me are people who are confident and are not afraid to wear what they like. I get inspiration from literally everywhere! How can you not!?
Here are some of her designs. I can assure you, she is amazing at what she does.

Rylee Jade made this dress out of thumb tacks and mops.
I call that being super creative!!!

Just smile

Blouse: H&M
Scarf: Francesca's
Purse: TJ Maxx
Necklace: H&M
Watch: Michael Kors
Bracelet: J. Crew 
Dear lovely readers, let me ask you something. Did you smile today? Every morning I wake up and I am just in a good mood. Every single morning. Okay I am tired in the mornings and it is hard for me to get up too, but after 5 minutes whining about getting up, I get my butt out of bed. Life is just so much more fun when you're in a good mood. Life is too short to hold grudges against people or to be mad, just enjoy your life. Okay life can be very tough at times, believe me I know. I've been through a lot of stuff too and I'm only 23. But the only reason why I am where I am today, I've always been optimistic. I enjoy my life and always have a smile on my face. Every time I meet new people they always ask me "Why are you smiling?" and I just answer, because that's just me. I'm just a happy person and always have a smile on my face. I love helping people and make everyone happy. You should try it. When you wake up tomorrow morning, wake up with a smile on your face. Try to stay in a good mood for most of the day and tell me how you felt. I can tell you, life is so much easier and fun when you're in a good mood.
I hope you all have a great day tomorrow. Good Night :)
xoxo Joëlle

Believe in yourself



Blazer: ZARA
Top: Arden B
Sunglasses: D&G via SunglassHut 
Pants: H&M
Purse: TJ Maxx
Shoes: Payless
Dear lovely readers, no matter how hard life can be at times, always believe in yourself and be optimistic. I can tell you one thing that if I wasn't this optimistic I wouldn't be where I am today. I am very proud of where and who I am today and I've learned a lot over the last few years about life and myself.
I came to the US trying to get a little distance from my life in Germany and it ended up being the best decision I've ever made. Of course I miss my family, friends and my life in Germany but when you go to another country all by yourself, you're practically thrown in the ocean. You have to figure out your life all by yourself. When you're trying to find yourself and trying to figure out your destiny, you have to take the wrong exit sometimes. That will show you what you're not and you can continue trying to find yourself. The most important thing is never give up. Believe in yourself! If you don't then who should?
Don't share your dreams, goals or ideas about your future with people that might bring you down, even if it's your own parents. I feel very fortunate that I have such awesome parents who have always supported me in my decisions. Of course I have made some bad ones just like everyone else, but everyone should learn from their own mistakes. Don't let anyone tell you that you can not not do something, because one day you'll believe what they're saying. You will probably end up being unhappy, because you didn't follow your dream. There are times when you will have to leave a friend or lover behind that isn't any good for you. It will be hard, but believe me, you will be much happier with your own life in the long run. Sometimes you just need to choose what's best for you. It's your life! Don't look back and just go for it!
