Stylista Enterprises very own Grizel Del Valle

Getting to know Grizel Del Valle has been a wonderful ride filled with highs, zooms and lots of speed...an adrenaline rush! Her energy is contagious. She's so easy to work with, so transparent, true to herself. Creating an image for Grizel has been a soulful experience. Despite Grizel's youth, the level of maturity in this girl translates into her singing. She's grounded, determined, focused and driven. She's serious about her work...she strives for perfection. But Grizel is also a ball of fire! Dynamic, uplifting, funny and silly at times...tomboyish and yet feminine- earthy, bohemian chic....and flashy, vibrant Hollywood glamour kinda gal. How do you come up with a look that could encompass everything she is?  Hmmm! It wasn't a difficult task. Grizel made it so easy by being her and allowing me to see her true self, her most inner thoughts and dreams, her ups and her lows, everything that makes her the amazing woman that she is. Grizel Del Valle's new look is a visible and tangible image of her soul...and just like her music, you won't be able to get her out of your head.

Stay on the look out for the launching of her website...coming soon www.grizeldelvalle.com

We can't wait to share with you her hot new image!

When you do what you love...

When you do what you love...you live your dream.  Are you chasing your dreams? Or have you settled to a colorless, bland life? 
I take life with all its different colors and flavors. Sometimes dark and bitter, other times bright and sweet.   Living life in the full color spectrum, adding sparkle to every action takes you closer to that dream.  Look around you, are your surroundings in HD color or are you still in monotone black & white...colorized selectively in certain areas? Wouldn't it be a better picture if in high definition and vibrantly colorful? 

When you do what you love....you radiate vitality in every action! You are envisioning a dream....YOUR dream.
Dare to step in a rainbow of opportunities that will take you places beyond belief.
I can honestly say I have decorated my life with many colors because I have found what drives me through ART. This is my venue of expression, my inspiration, my instrument of peace, my devotion, my passion....it is what has saved me.

My dream is to inspire others to find their true colors...those that enhance their mood and help them conquer their own dreams.

Dream to do what you love and live the dream.

When you do what you love...you become the irresistible lover, the one they won't be able to get out of their minds, the one they can't get enough of, the one they can't live without...because to them you are THE ONE.

THE ONE to make a difference in others just by doing what you LOVE.

And when you do what you love...you are loving and living in full color!

Sorial...wrap yourself in luxury!

Sorial...yes as exotic as it sounds...these handbags are everything the smart shopper with an exquisite taste desires. Since fall 2006, husband and wife, Alex and Vivianne Bannout, have been providing customers with affordable luxury.  They knew the market needed great quality designs at a good value! Sorial uses Italian lambskin so that the bags are lightweight and very soft. With the contemporary woman in mind, this team of designers knew the importance of manufacturing a product that would be functional without compromising style.  The designs include a back pocket on every handbag, and have at least 5 pockets on the inside. These are beautifully lined with silk fabrics of colorful paisleys or animal prints depending on the season. Below is their popular "Fortune Cookie Hobo" that has been sold out at every Nordstrom store.

What makes Sorial handbags unique is their creative craftsmanship...from the vibrant fun colors to the studded details, zippers, locks, optional shoulder strap and multi-compartments, are all a reflection of the attention to detail that has been given to each handbag design. The lavishness of each bag exudes sophistication and glamour and yet its functionality makes it the perfect companion from work to cocktail hour. The variety in styles...from clutches, wristlets, satchels, hobos, totes...makes it easy to find the perfect accessory to compliment your wardrobe. Sorial will sure be your everyday "tag along" bag.  Dare to make a statement, wear them everywhere you go!

A family owned business that is now proud of their rapid growth. Sorial handbags can be found in over 150 retails nationwide.

It has been a major boom in the fashion industry and they are constantly being featured in catalogs and magazines such as
Marie Claire, Lucky, among others.

We had the pleasure of meeting Tanya Bannout, daughter of the designers, who is now following on their footsteps by adding her own modern sense of fashion to the brand. She was recently promoting the new collection at Posh Boutique in Morristown, NJ www.poshboutiquenj.com - one of the stores that carry their exclusive designs. The boutique had a book signing event with Teresa Giudice from hit reality TV show, Housewives of New Jersey.

Tanya Bannout and Teresa Giudice at Posh Boutique
Tanya is a smart, driven, stylish, beautiful young woman who is passionate about promoting the business with the same poise, elegance and passion as her parents.

She gave us a fun and eloquent interview describing the different designs of the collection that we have posted here on our blog and also on our YouTube channel vivanstyle.

It was a fabulous experience to meet this fabulous talented designer who is a vivid example of commitment and perseverance. What started out as a mere "American Dream" from two visionaries from Egypt, raised in Brooklyn, NY....is now a sweet reality that she is proud to carry on.
