Welcome to Chrissy Joy – Life & Style Blog! My name is Christian Joy Riley and I am overjoyed to launch this blog to give an inside look into my life and style as well as all of the things and people that inspire it!
Since I was a teenager, I have had a passion for fashion and rummaging through my mother’s closet. I would love to try on her clothes and see how I could re-create outfits from my closet by adding accessories, tops or shoes from hidden gems that I would find throughout hers (
I still do that to this day). It gave me such a rush to create looks for myself based on outfits I saw my mom wear and items from her wardrobe that inspired me. As an adult, I have turned that passion into Freelance Fashion Styling. I am now able to use my inspirations to create looks for others through photo shoots and personal wardrobe styling. It brings me so much joy to help others to look their absolute best!
Everything about my life has evolved so much since I moved to New York a year and a half ago. There have been twists and turns as well as ups and downs. But through God, the ride has been one that has taught me to take leaps of faith, try new things, learn and grow from my mistakes, and to be stylish while doing so!:)
The goal of Chrissy Joy is to give you a first-hand look into my life and journey of style. There are many people and things that I come across on a day-to-day basis that catch my eye and inspire me and clothes that I wear. Street style, art and culture, fashion shows, or just an everyday conversation with someone with an awesome and uplifting story. These are all things that cultivate my style and creativity, and keep me pushing towards the greatness that God has placed inside of me. I would love for them to do the same for you!
Follow me on this journey of living life, taking chances, and bringing style along for the ride!
