Welcome to Style by Carise!
After obtaining my degree in textiles, apparel and merchandising, I have excelled in many different areas of the fashion and creative industry. Style by Carise is a creative lifestyle brand. I design and sell exclusive products with my hands, heart and mind.
I have also been booked by an array of creative projects crossing over different creative roles including lifestyle modeling, assisting productions, managing creative projects, styling, and designing for companies requiring a versatile creative talent.
These projects have included Brides Magazine, Bridal Guide magazine, Caterpillar, Wholesome Foods, photo shoot Stylist, bridal stylist, television commercials, advertisements, creative production assistant, Bad Boys 3, Chicago Fire, Chicago Justice, fashion show production, day designer for art events, day of wedding coordinator (Day Designer) and consultant, wedding designer, personal designer, painter and photography.
I blog about things I’m passionate about such as, fashion, lifestyle, weddings, marriage, design, and DIY. I am a frugal fashionista, so I also blog about affordable fashion finds and deals.
My goal is to inspire others to “style your life”. I believe that you can design the life you desire. One of my favorite things to do is make old things new. To be creative does not mean you have to be a fashion designer. You can be creative as a doctor, a teacher, a lawyer, or any profession. I believe you can take pain and hard times and re-design your life. You can create happiness and a beautiful life for yourself. Making things with my hands is just a physical way of demonstrating that you can make anything beautiful, especially your life.
I’m just a young woman trying to live in her purpose using what I think is one of God’s most special gifts……the gift of creativity.
