TO BE FASHION ENVIED

Season Greetings my FFF's.. I hope your holiday season is bright thus far & I absolutely hope that you're staying stylish yet warm..I know it's been a while since I've kept you up to date with my world but please believe I haven't forgotten about you..And we both know life does not go on without me.. HEHE..(just a little TSHC humor) It may be a bit early for New Year Resolutions but I promise to keep you fashionably informed...

If you haven't noticed, THE STYLE HOUSE CHRONICLES has a new look & a new attitude... So were switching it up a bit... Were touching on more fashion events, upcoming entrepreneurs, celebrity trends and much more.. So stay tuned for whats in store..

Anyway, A few days ago I had the pleasure to interview Keren Charles an upcoming fashion stylist looking to launch her business, Fashion Envy.. This native from New Orleans & Hurricane Katrina Evacuee has unleashed her flair to Atlanta.. With her great eye for fashion and a positive look on life, Fashion Envy is sure to be an enormous success..

TSHC: TELL ME ABOUT FASHION ENVY & WHAT SERVICES YOU PROVIDE?

KC: MY NAME IS KEREN CHARLES & MY COMPANY IS FASHION ENVY.. WE PROVIDE DRESS RENTALS & PERSONAL STYLING FOR ATLANTA WOMEN ON ANY BUDGET.. WHILE KEEPING THEM FASHIONABLE THROUGH OUT THE YEAR..

TSHC: THAT SOUNDS PERFECT FOR THE IDEAL"FASHION FORWARD IT GIRL".. WOULD YOU CONSIDER YOUR PRICES REASONABLE?

KC: YES, COMPARED TO OTHER DRESS RENTAL COMPANIES OUR PRICES WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.. A 3 DAY RENTAL FOR A DESIGNER DRESS IS ONLY $20 WITH A $5 CLEANING FEE.. SO YOU WOULD ONLY PAY A FRACTION OF THE COST FOR THE DRESS, WEAR IT, GET COMPLIMENTED & THEN RETURN IT THE NEXT DAY..

TSHC: IF YOU COULD DEFINE FASHION ENVY, HOW WOULD THAT DEFINE YOU?

KC: WELL, I'VE ALWAYS LOVED FASHION, SHOPPING FOR A GREAT DEAL & ADVISING MY FAMILY, FRIENDS & EVEN STRANGERS ON WHAT TO WEAR.. .SO I DECIDED TO COMBINE MY PASSION INTO A BUSINESS THAT I ENJOY..

TSHC: WHO WOULD YOU CONSIDER TO BE THE MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSON IN YOUR LIFE & WHY?

KC: DEFINITELY MY MOTHER.. I GREW UP IN A SINGLE PARENT HOUSEHOLD & MY MOTHER WORKED TWO JOBS TO SUPPORT ME WHILE MAKING SURE I HAD ALL MY NECESSITIES.. LEAD BY EXAMPLE, I'VE EMBODIED THAT SAME WORK ETHIC..SHE'S BEEN VERY SUPPORTIVE IN ALL THAT I'VE ACCOMPLISHED & I APPRECIATE THAT..

TSHC: TELL ME ABOUT THE THE BUSINESS LAUNCH & THE FASHION SWAP PARTY THAT WERE ALL DYING TO ATTEND?

KC: THE BUSINESS LAUNCH IS OPEN TO ALL WOMEN & WILL INTRODUCE THE SERVICES THAT I'LL PROVIDE, FOLLOWED BY THE FASHION SWAP PARTY.. FOR THE PARTY, WERE ASKING WOMEN TO RAID THEIR CLOSETS, BRING CHIC, NEW TO GENTLY WORN CLOTHING, SHOES & ACCESSORIES TO SWAP FOR NEW FASHIONS FROM OTHERS..

TSHC: WHERE DOES YOUR FLAIR FOR FASHION STEM FROM?

KC: AGAIN, MY MOTHER.. WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH BUT SHE ALWAYS MANAGED TO PUT ME IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL DRESSES & KEPT ME STYLISH .. & AS A YOUNG GIRL I'D REMEMBER HER IN HEELS AT ALL TIMES & AND EVEN TODAY I'VE FOLLOWED HER FOOTSTEPS B/C NOW I CAN'T GET OUT OF MY HEELS FOR A SECOND..


TSHC: I FEEL YOU ON THE HEELS...IS THERE ONE WORD THAT DESCRIBES YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

KC: CLASSIC

TSHC: I LIKE THAT... IF YOU COULD STYLE ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD THAT BE?

KC: I'D PROBABLY STYLE THAT "NEW MOM" WHO SEEMS TO LOSE HER SENSE OF FASHION WHILE FOCUSED ON THE BABY.. & MAYBE WHOPPI GOLDBERG TOO..LOL

TSHC: IF YOU COULD LOOK INTO THE FUTURE, WHERE DO YOU SEE FASHION ENVY IN 5YRS?

KC: I WOULD LIKE TO BE KNOWN AS THE "ONE STOP SOLUTION" FOR WOMEN TO GET THE FINEST DRESSES AT A GREAT PRICE...ALONG WITH A TEAM OF HAIR STYLISTS, MUA'S & PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT WILL HELP CREATE THE IMAGE THAT WOMEN DREAM OFF..OHH.. & I HOPE TO HAVE A LOCATION IN NEW ORLEANS & HERE IN ATLANTA TOO..

TSHC: CAN YOU OFFER ANY ADVICE TO FUTURE ENTREPRENEURS LOOKING TO LAUNCH THEIR OWN BUSINESS?

KC: DEFINITELY RESEARCH YOUR COMPETITORS, & KNOW WHAT MARKET YOUR BUSINESS IS GEARED TOWARDS.. & MOST IMPORTANTLY KEEP GOD FIRST & NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAM!!!
