Introducing Delecia of Style De La Creme

Delecia's style is Haute. Haute mi seh! Like me, she's Jamaican so you know I had to use some patois in my intro ;).  Her blog is filled with inspiration, a look at the first page alone, and you'll find Delecia mixing prints, colors and textures flawlessly.  I just love her fearless style.Oh, and I can't forget the information she provides about NYC's upcoming sample sales. If you are an NYC fashionista, I know you'll agree that such info are gems. It's my pleasure to introduce you to Delecia and her lovely blog, Style De La Creme

So tell us about yourself, who is Delecia?
I'm a NYC girl (originally from Jamaica)  full of energy, vivacious and outgoing....Did I mention I'm a shopaholic? My latest hobby is photography which syncs well with having a style blog. Some of my favorite things to do include shopping, traveling, I'm a total foodie and I love fitness. My greatest obsession has always been with fashion. So visit www.StyleDeLaCreme.com to see my take on mixing prints and how I put a spin on my looks.

What inspired you to start a blog?  
Between working full time and planning my wedding, I wanted to have a creative outlet to indulge in what I loved most....FASHION. This blog serves as a brainchild of my intuitive knack and passion for all things fashion. StyleDeLaCreme features the same sophistication you'd see on Madison Ave or the cutting edge chic of a Soho on a smaller budget. This blog is also dedicated to sharing how I build my wardrobe with highs and lows by announcing all the designer sample sales happening in NYC. Now every girl can afford to look Madison Ave chic at a fraction of the cost.

How would you describe your style? 
My style is sporty, chic and elegant but always with an edge.

Where do you get fashion inspiration? 
I'm inspired by street style fashion in NYC, fashion magazines and other style bloggers.

What are you  wearing this Fall?
The coolest addition to my Fall Collection is an awesome knee length Cape I scored at the last DKNY sample sale over the summer. The 3/4 length mimics a trench coat style but when it's belted, it's perfect for both casual and dressy days.

Some people just have  the "it" factor. Joy definitely has it. She has that je ne se quois of style that is bold, unique, trendsetting and in a class of it's own. You'll find tons of inspiration on Joy's blog. Just as an example, she gave me the inspiration to mix prints and patterns flawlessly.  It is my pleasure to introduce you to Joy and her blog Joy Loves Fashion

I am a Nigerian-American fashion stylist, image consultant and style blogger. As an image consultant, I help men and women look stylish all year round! My blog is JoyLovesFashion.com

What inspired you to start a blog?  

I've always loved being able to inspire people with my style and creating a blog was a way to build a platform to showcase it! It's been 3 years this month since I started it and it's been a wonderful ride!

How would you describe your style? 
Print-obsessed, Spontaneous, Vintage-inspired and FUN! Always has to be fun :) And, I'm in love with turbans!

Where do you get fashion inspiration? 
My mom gave me many of her clothes from the late 70s, 80s and that has definitely shaped my style. She is my style inspiration for sure! I even dedicated an entire post on my blog to her vintage swag! She's a natural fashionista for sure!

What are you looking forward to wearing this Fall?
Leather everything! Pants, dresses, skirts...can't get enough! Can you believe that I wore a leather dress and 3 leather skirts for New York Fashion Week?! Loved it!

Anything else?
Thanks so much for the fab feature!!! I'd love for you all to follow me on instagram: @joy_adaeze and twitter @joyadaeze.
