Each & every Wednesday for “Woman Crush Wednesdays”, The Dean of Fashion & Beauty will select an entreprenHER to be featured in her “Boss Babe Spotlight” Series. This series has been curated to shine some light on the small businesses of women who are unapologetically and authentically being themselves while leaving a footprint behind in the world that they live in.
WHO’S UP NEXT?
Today, I am featuring: Carmelita “Lita F. Styles” Frazier! Recently, I had the chance to interview Carmelita and learn some new and exciting things about her. I want to thank her for taking the time to speak with me so that I could shine some light on all of her dopeness and share it with you all. I certainly look forward to continuing to curate, collaborate, create and celebrate with her in the future! You can shower her with your support booking her to be your stylist or by filling your cart at her shop! Sit back, relax, pour a glass of wine and read about what she shared with me:
What do you want people to know about you and your business?
LitaFStyles is a styling company that offers wardrobe, fashion, and event styling, closet revamps, personal shopping, dope signature tees and we plan to add new ventures soon. LitaFStyles was started for my love of getting dressed.
For years I struggled with finding the perfect clothing fit in only specific stores or sections such as “plus” or “misses”. However, now I shop any and everywhere and you can too by letting LitaFStyle you!
What drives you as a business owner?
The difference I make in someone else’s life drives me to keep going. At times I want to give up but then I’ll get a message from someone saying I inspired them to be more confident or to try something new. These messages warm my heart and let me know that I can change lives just by being who I am and doing what I love.
What kind of legacy/footprint do you want to leave behind?
Honestly, I want women to embrace themselves unapologetically and if that starts with buying merchandise from me or having a simple encouraging conversation; I am grateful! I aspire to inspire.
What knowledge would you like to impart on other small business owners, both new & aspiring and old & experienced?
I live by 5 things:
1. Work your heart out for what you want!
2. Practice patience
3. Be sure that your faith is stronger than your fear!
4. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
5. TAKE THE RISK
What does being a “boss babe” mean to you?
Being a boss babe means being fearless, being unapologetically you, betting on yourself and doing the work because nothing works but WORK.
If you had to pick a phrase to serve as your words of affirmation, what would it be
WHAT’S MEANT FOR ME WILL BE!
Are there any other special gifts or talents that you have that you’d like to share?
Outside of styling, I am a plus size model, professional finance/admin consultant, and I was once a hair stylist.
