Heavy on Fashion Talks to Lillie Morales-Torres of Jerseyfashionista.com


Lillie is a graduate of Kean University where she studied Communications Journalism and Media and Film. Fashion , writing, and photography are Lillie’s passions. You can see all of this on JerseyFashionista., a site she created which covers fashion, beauty, and lifestyle throughout the tri-state area. Along with her journalistic writing skills, Lillie is also known for doing on camera work. She contributes to LaMiraTv.com, a Spanish news website, for their Lifestyle section and Alphaaomega.com for their Fashion section. To add to her many talents, Lillie also does event planning and charity work. She has put together fashion shows and shopping events helping local aspiring models, make up artists, photographers, and charities as well.  Lillie is known for planning unique events such as themed fashion shows and NJ Central Prom Expo (with MCS Productions). She enjoys networking, and hopes to bring more fashion, shopping, beauty, and charity events to the New Jersey area.




Heavy on Fashion: Lillie, how did you get into blogging? What would you change about the blogging industry?
Lillie: I started blogging when I was in college. One of my professors was talking to us about how soon print could become extinct and how important it was to be able to write for online publications or even start a blog. One of our projects was to start a blog which our professor read weekly just about every day life. I liked it so much that I started to explore the world of blogging. I started with a domain like LilliesWorld at blogspot where I featured fashion posts and stuff about my life. In college, I always covered Fashion and Lifestyle for the paper on campus. So, I decided to create a blog where this was all I covered- beauty, fashion and lifestyle mainly in New Jersey and the surrounding areas. I came up with JerseyFashionista and the title stuck out ever since
After college, I was ill and had to wait almost 6 months before job hunting. Even with my high GPA, internships and experience, work then became difficult to find or wasn't what I was looking for. They say when every door is closed, you need to make your own and that's pretty much what I did with JerseyFashionista- I built my own brand. I went from simply blogging, to video interviews, hosting events, styling shows, and working with other writers and brands. 
What I would change about the blogging industry- the way brands work with bloggers. I think we work very hard to produce videos, photos, and content for the little we get in return. I feel they should at least feature our posts on their websites for a week for example, that way we would gain exposure, maybe new followers. I also feel we should get more in return whether it's product or pay. 



Heavy on Fashion: How did JerseyFashionista.com come to be? What make JerseyFashionista.com different from other blogs? What has motivated you to keep going over the years?
Lillie: I think I answered the first part of this question above, lol!  JerseyFashionista.com, to me, is unique. It is sort of a blog/magazine. The first thing people tell me is that the content is well written. I think knowing how to write is so important if you are going to have readers follow you. Next, I'd say is the photo and video. I am a photographer aside from a blogger so this helps me to produce nice photos and video when covering events. And it is not biased. You will not see any negative or vulgar content on the site. Posts are written in a way that the reader can decide whether or not they like something for themselves. It just gives you info straight out. No bashing or bullying. Our topics are also unique- JerseyFashionista.com has sections such as Beauty, Fashion, Mini Fashions (for mini fashionistas featuring mostly my daughter and other little girls!) Lifestyle, Health and more. I love doing it. JerseyFashionista.com has opened many doors for me I never thought possible, it's taken me so far so when I feel discouraged I look back at all of my posts and pictures and I just keep it moving. 

Heavy on Fashion:What is the biggest challenge about your fashion blogging?


Lillie:That would be keeping up with outfit posts- there is a strong outfit of the day trend going on right now in the blogging world. I honestly don't have the time to photograph myself every time I get dressed. So that's definitely a challenge but I am working on it. Also, picking and choosing which events to cover or what brands to work with. Some events seemed so great in the past and once I took the time to cover, I'd realize they were not worth my time or maybe the event did not go with what JF covers. Same thing with brands- as a blogger you don't want to work with a pest control company if you're covering fashion for example. 



Heavy on Fashion: Describe your day as the Editor of jerseyfashionista.com

Lillie: My days can be pretty hectic. I have assigned myself with Tuesdays and Fridays for blogging. This is a busy season at work right now so I don't want to abandon the blog completely.Sometimes it can be everyday though I will admit. I start my day with checking and responding to emails and messages. Then, I work on social media. I try to post at least a few times per week whether it's an outfit or make up or an upcoming event. I write down ideas for posts, create outfit inspiration boards, and instagram and tweet a lot to keep JF on the radar. Aside from the behind the scenes work I also have days where I either interview people or cover events and speak at events. I attend many networking events and have gone to speak at schools to help inspire younger generations. I also help style shows featuring local NJ designers. I run the site on my own as far as content and all. I do work closely with a great company (2Vibrant.com) that provides my hosting, ads and more for me. I keep in touch with them on a weekly basis to see how things are running or fix anything. 

Heavy on Fashion: What are some of the best and worst aspects of running your own blog?

Lillie:  The best- it's something I created on my own. I get to share my passions, my style and information about great products or events happening. No one can sensor my content or tell me what to write about and people or brands go straight through me to work on projects, posts, campaigns; etc. 

The worst part- running it by myself. It'd be nice to have a partner. Sometimes, I believe with blogging, two great minds can be better at it. It's a lot to take on if you want it to be successful. I'm not yet where I want to be with this but I know it will get there eventually. 


Heavy on Fashion: Where do you see  yourself in 10 years? What steps are you taking to reach your goal?

Lillie: In 10 years, I'd love to see JF expand. We are currently working on a radio show and a mini web series - adding more video to our channel on youtube.com. We will also be partnering up with another major NJ publication soon to gain be able to reach more readers. I'd also like to say JF would have an e-book published and partner with major brands or magazines. We have a lot in the works for this year so I do see these things as a possibility. Aside from that, an online shop to sell merchandise that would help benefit some type of young aspiring female journalists. 

Heavy on Fashion: Who is your biggest inspiration in your life?

Lillie: I look up to any strong independent entrepreneur female to be honest. There isn't one person in particular that I can say inspires me. I admire people like  Jennifer Lopez and Jessica Simpson who have taught us that you can pretty much do anything and not just limit yourself to one thing. 

My daughter also inspires me to do great things. She is only 7 but says things to me like "mommy you have the coolest jobs. Who's mom gets to see fashion shows and meet designers?" She has met a few designers with me and loves to draw her own designs and style her own outfits. She is quite the mini fashionista. When I hear those things from her and see the excitement in her eyes from watching a show I covered, it truly inspires me to do more and maybe one day this can open a door for her, too. 


Heavy on Fashion: Describe the style of New Jersey? 

Lillie:  Jersey is a little gaudy, sparkly, name brand obsessed, voluminous hair, and and animal print wearing. I have my own unique style which can be edgy and vintage mixed together but as the tagline of JF reads "Style with a Jersey Twist," I do have that Jersey twist. Whether its the hair, the animal print or bling it's there and I love it! 

Heavy on Fashion: Any upcoming events for Jerseyfashionista.com?

Lillie: Always. Apart from working on different projects, there are a couple of events such as the Central New jersey Prom Expo 2014 which I was able to style and run the show last year. And then there are a few fashion and styling events. You can stay posted by checking out JerseyFashionista.com under the Lifestyle section

Heavy on Fashion talks to Pretty Pear Bride ...and Giveaway



How did Pretty Pear Bride magazine come to be? Where can we pick up Pretty Pear Magazine? 
After countless attempts by my wedding friends, PPB magazine came to be because I saw a void and filled it.  I knew nothing about magazines, where to start or how to make one but I knew that there was a void and I was eager and hungry to fill it.  PPB Magazines are available through our website and in salons and boutiques across the country.  Visit or website for locations, that are being updated constantly. 

I love Pretty Pear Bride blog. What made you venture into the blogosphere? 
I started out in the cyber world of wedding industry blogging by creating Divas and Weddings, wedding inspiration for the wedding diva.  I loved being able to share with the world my creative visions and take on weddings.  I myself being a plus size bride noticed that there were no resources, like Style Me Pretty and other wedding blogs for plus size brides so my mission was clear: merge my love for blogging and wedding planning with creating a place for plus size brides to see themselves in wedding inspiration.

What is the most important thing you learned from being the Owner and Editor of Pretty Pear Bride?  
Determination!! It is not easy hearing "No" and this venture has really taught me that you have to be determined to get what you want out of life.  But good things do come to those that wait!

                  What advice would you give someone looking to start their own business?  
Stay true to you and your vision. It's so easy to get caught up in creating something and forget what you started out to do.  Know your vision and never lose sight of it.  

I see that you are a Certified Wedding Planner and Plus Size Bridal Stylist. What is the best wedding advice you can give to all those Pretty Pear Brides?  
Take one thing at a time.  Yes, planning a wedding can be stressful and hard but if you take one thing at a time, it makes it so much easier.  Trust me it will save your sanity as well as everyone else around you.

From a Biology Degree to a Certified Wedding planner and stylist, that is a interesting career change. How did that come to be? 
Well, I was always the cool and social science person, as they called me in college.  Everyone was always like “you are a biology person but you’re so social and fun.  So I’ve always had that planning, social vibe to me.  While in college I was in charge of the whole social/events organization on my campus so I definitely got my fix of social and planning even when I had my science side.  And when I graduated, I did the science/medical thing to pay the bills because at the time being a planner and stylist wasn't as lucrative as it is now but I always had my hand in the event planning realm.  So eventually my husband told to go out and start my own company.  So here we are.


There are many people who would like be a certified Wedding planner. 
What advice would you give to them?  
Experience, Experience, Experience!  Being certified is great, it looks good and will give you that advantage over other planners who are not but don't think that just because you are certified that you will automatically get clients.  You need to get the experience to go with the certification.  Do internships, volunteer, shadow other planners, the more hands on experience the better. 


When I was getting married, I found it pretty hard to find a great dress. What advice would you a bride to be who is looking for the perfect dress for her special day? 
Any store/brand suggestions.  

"Try it on"  So often people see things on a rack and just know that it won't look good on them but how do you know.  You don't know until you try it on.  You will be amazed at how different a dress looks on you as opposed to on the rack.  I am in love with Alfred Angelo right now. They really understand the plus size bride and are making more options that compliment our bodies.  Also don't be afraid to get a dress custom made, especially to match your size.  This is a great option for that bride that has a specific vision and can't find it anyway.  

What is your favorite plus size bridal designer(s) right now?   
I love Alfred Angelo, White by Vera Wang and Etsy for those custom made dresses.

What advice would you give a bride planning her special day? 
 It's your special day so make sure and enjoy it!

Heavy on Fashion Talks to Daniel Dunt of TS New York



Hey all my fashion divas and gurus! I am happy to interview a great blogger Daniel Dunt of That's So New York That’s so New York talks about great activities and trends of the fashion world and emerging creative designers. Lets get to know more about That's so New York and Daniel Dunt!




Hello Daniel, Thank you for agree to the interview. Why did you initially decide to start your blog That’s so New York?

D.D: It’s all Ugly Betty’s fault really. She had one, and I wanted one!

Where did the name That’s so New York come from? What is the mission of That’s so New York in the Fashion Industry?

D.D: It was actually my brother that thought of the name whilst he was home from university for the
summer. I thought it was catchy, and from then onward, I simply went with it.

In regards to the concept behind my blog, I like to post about independent and emerging, creative
talent predominately. I feel that the fashion industry can, at times, be very commercial. People do
not pay enough attention to new talent, and that’s where I come in. I want to give new talent a
place where they can be seen and, although one blog isn’t going to give them the recognition they
deserve, I think it’s a step in the right direction.

You accomplished a lot as a young blogger with 12,000 likes on the That's so New York Facebook page, over 4000 followers on your Twitter page and over 620 followers on Bloglovin'. What advice would you give an inspiring fashion writer/blogger to reach the next level?

D.D: If I’m totally honest, I’m not exactly the advice giving sort. Everyone has their own approach to
blogging and, as I’m still a newbie, I’m not really in a position where I would advise people to listen
to what I have to say as far as ‘reaching the next level’ goes. All I would say is that you should be
yourself. Blog about what you believe in, and there will be people out there who want to read and
follow your content. Build relationships, take every opportunity that comes your way and simply go
with the flow. Blogging is supposed to be fun, and you have to give yourself a chance to enjoy it!

What would you consider the biggest challenge in being a fashion writer/blogger?

D.D: It would have to be time management. I’m currently juggling so many projects, and it’s been
incredibly difficult, especially with college 5 days a week. On average, I sleep approximately 5 hours
each night. It’s not exactly healthy, but it gets the job done!

Do you consider yourself a fashion blogger or a fashion writer? Is there a difference?

D.D: Well, I always refer to myself as a fashion blogger, so I assume that’s what I am. I think that fashion writers have a much more in-depth knowledge of the industry, and they’re much better at writing. I would ideally like to write for a magazine one day, and perhaps that’s when I’ll make the transition from fashion blogger to fashion writer. Until then, it’s blogging all the way!

Who is your biggest inspiration in your life?

D.D: I take inspiration from an array of sources. In terms of people, I would have to say that the beliefs of vocalists like Marina Diamandis have been very inspirational. She’s my idol, and speaks a lot of truth. I also take inspiration from successful bloggers like Susanna Lau and Jennine Jacob. They’ve done so well for themselves, and I like to think that I’m capable of doing the same, eventually.

I noticed that on That’s so New York you feature your favorite music tracks. How does music
influence your writing?

D.D:  If I’m listening to music, and its music that I enjoy listening to, it always puts me in an upbeat mood. If I’ve been listening to music, I might sound a little more bubbly than usual. It doesn’t have a
significant effect on my writing, but music is something I really enjoy.

We all know that you love fashion. What else do you love?

D.D:  I’m a big fan of music, photography and modern art. I’m really interested in pop culture, surrealism and futurism. I also find history really interesting, although I wasn’t very good at it at school. I find the Jurassic period really interesting, alongside archaeology and Greek mythology. I also find space really interesting. I watch a lot of documentaries, and I’m now hooked on the stuff. Film and
independent film in particular is also something I really enjoy!

Where do you see That’s so New York in 5 years?

D.D: Ideally, I’d love for That’s so New York to be a popular source for individuals who are looking to
discover independent and emerging, creative talent. I’d also like to introduce outfit posts to the
blog, but I’m currently working on my overall image, as I’m not entirely comfortable with how I
look at the moment. I’d also like to introduce some street style photography to the blog, and that’s
something I’m currently working on. I’m all about building relationships, and hopefully over the
course of the next 5 years I’ll be able to work with some exciting designers and brands.

I would like to thank Daniel Dunt of  That's So New York for the interview.

The Bags

The Spring/Summer 2012 collection - The Iconic Collection


Charmaine inspiration for her Spring/Summer 2012 collection was the late and Stylish Edie Sedgwick. Edie was the muse of Andy Warhol and fashion icon of the 60's.  Edie lived a glamorous and tragic life. The mixture of boldness and vulnerability can be seen throughout the collection.
