The Real Stars Who Inspire the Designs

I’ve spent my entire life surrounded by stars -- but not the stars who immediately come to mind. The stars in my world won’t be seen at the Oscars or gracing the cover of Vogue. They are everyday women: hair stylists, educators, realtors, doctors; mothers, mentors and friends. The women we all know.

They seriously amaze me.

I’m sure we’ve all fantasized about walking in the Louboutins of our favorite Hollywood star, but you can’t deny the low-key glamour and “whip appeal” of the everyday woman. She gracefully walks in her amazingness and goes about her day, handling her business and whatnot. No glam squad. No praise from the Academy. No snaps from the paparazzi. She does all that she does, (with or without “likes” and followers) simply because she can.

It’s impossible not to be inspired by a woman like that!

That’s exactly why the everyday woman plays the starring role in the designs behind Cheriss & Company. She inspires some of the greatest material.

If you ask me, I’d say this level of attention is long overdue!

I hope you love what you see around here. What matters most is making you smile and making sure you never forget that you were fearfully and wonderfully created.
