My Story

My name is Christian Joy Riley. I am Freelance Fashion Stylist originally from Creedmoor, North Carolina with a passion for fashion and creating looks for myself and others. I answered God’s call for me to move to New York City in the Summer of 2012, after graduating college. With all the faith I could muster up (and it took ALOT because I didn’t have a job, a plan, or a lick of money), I packed everything I owned into two suitcases and left for NYC two weeks later. I have had many challenges and victories within that time, but through it all I have learned to walk by faith, be fearless, take chances and to do so stylishly!

Chrissy Joy is 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 my versatile style. Street style, fashion shows, arts & culture, or just an everyday conversation with someone with an awesome and uplifting story. These are all things that cultivate my style and keep me pushing towards the greatness that God has placed inside of me and 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!
