We knew we needed to do something special this year - and that's we did! Our first 2020 collaboration is with someone who is extra special to the Kyrz's Closet team. Not only did she follow and support Kyrz while she was with us, but she has also been by our side since we lost our beloved Kyrz. From her advice to even jumping in front of the camera when we need to shoot. Lissette we THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! We know Kyrz has a HUGE smile on her face! TODAY we launch our Kyrz's Closet x LiiRaven Resort Edit Collection!
TELL US ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR FOUNDER KYRZAYDA.
I met Kyrzayda in 2011 in LA at a Lucky Fab conference. We hit it off and hung out during the conference. I remember we went into a Kitson store, and she left her wallet in the hotel, and she wanted this bag. I offered to pay for the bag, she looked at me and said: "girl you don't even know me like that" lol I said, "its just money I know you will pay me back." Though that moment comes up often, the most memorable moment that stands out to me from that trip was us heading to see the Hollywood sign. I remember Kyrzayda saying, "one of us will make it, a Latina needs to turn the blogging industry upside down." Kyrzayda and I weren't best friends, and we often had different views, but the respect of the hustle was there, and when she left this earth, that memory on top of that hill looking at the Hollywood sign stuck out to me. I promised myself to hustle and be a motivator for another woman to dare to dream big, if not for me, for her.
WHAT INSPIRED THIS COLLECTION?
My love for travel inspired this collection. I love seeing different cultures and use my environment to inspire the colors in my wardrobe. The details of each piece will show that.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PIECE FROM THE COLLECTION?
The Guava set is my favorite piece. The details in the sleeves of the top and the flow of the skirt is just everything. I especially love the color because it would look great on any skin tone.
WHAT ARE 3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
Whimsical, romantic, chic. If you cant tell by this collection, I love dramatic sleeves. I look at this collection, and I see women on date nights, on beautiful sunset strolls, celebrating life. I look at this collection and dream of my next vacation, and that's what I want everyone to feel.
WHAT YOUR MEMORABLE MOMENT FROM THE TRIP TO CURACOCO?
My most memorable moment from this trip to Curacao has to be Geri's last night we; as we were leaving dinner, the bar started playing "Sweet Caroline," and my mom and I started singing. It indeed was a fun moment I will cherish.
