The Queen of Effortless Chic: Interview with Daisy Lewellyn

Blood Sweat and Heels, Daisy Lewellyn, on Discounts, Dresses and of course…Drama!

Style expert and author, Daisy Lewellyn is one of the sassy spitfires on the hit new Bravo series, Blood, Sweat and Heels. She dished to me about discounts, dresses, and of course, drama. Although she has always turned heads, it’s Daisy’s strong sense of self and kind heart that makes her a standout. You will Fall Head Over Heels for this “Queen of Effortless Chic!”

Your real name is Lauren Lewellyn. When and why did you change your name to Daisy?

While growing up, I never followed the crowd; I always wanted to be unique and different. While speaking with my girlfriend one day before we left home to attend Howard University in Washington, D.C., I said “You know what, I want a different name.”  She said she was thinking the same thing. I changed my name to Daisy because I absolutely LOVED Drew Barrymore… and she loved daisies! My girlfriend changed her name to Love. We never filed legal paperwork; this was purely an impulsive move that just took off. At school, we would introduce ourselves to our classmates and professors as Love and Daisy. No one ever questioned us.  Before I knew it, everyone on the East Coast knew me only as, Daisy. Once I started working bi-coastal, I knew the name “Daisy” was here to stay!

Miss Limitless Lewis

Damaris Lewis has proven to be more than just a pretty face. Although this Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model appeared in the Kayne West music video, Monster, models for numerous designers and danced with actor, Bradley Cooper, in the movie, Limitless, she has found time to share her positive philosophy about life to help children reach their goals.
At the Garden Of Dreams Foundation Talent Show, Lewis discussed with me how our lives are limitless and we are all capable of doing much more
than we ever dreamed of…
What do you love most about the Garden Of Dreams Foundation?
“Well, I instantly gravitated to this foundation once I heard the name was, “Garden Of Dreams”. This is one of the very few charities out there that stays true to what they stand for, making dreams come true for children. It is literally a dream come true for these children to let go of their troubles and perform on the great Radio City Music Hall stage. How many children, or anyone for that matter, would ever have that kind of opportunity?!”
What advice have you given the children during the auditions and rehearsals?
“I just tell them how the sky is not the limit; there is no limit! Life is limitless. I loved being able to work with the children and have supported them since their first audition.”
How have you been spreading to word among your fan-base? 
“I brought my family and friends here tonight and of course, I will be tweeting and posting pictures about this foundation.  It’s a fun and free show that anyone can attend and celebrates these talented children; what’s better than that?!”
You seem like such a great mentor. Have you ever considered contributing your talent on a modeling TV show such as, The Face?
“When Americas Next Top Model began, I would think to myself, “Oh my God I could totally kill that!” It would have been fun to do that back then. Fortunately, I was blessed to already have an agency and now I get to do great things like this and just be myself. Honestly, I don’t think I could ever do a reality TV showcompetition and have the cameras in my face constantly; however, I could see myself being the host!
Lewis went on to say how we all have infinite possibilities once we put our mind to it. I believe there are limitless opportunities for this lovely lady!

Revenge on Racks

On The Bachelor, After The Final Rose, Lindsay Yenter wore a sophisticated yet sexy white dress, sold on Singer22, proving that even though the door has closed on her and Sean Lowe’s relationship, an improved closet has opened! What a great way to say, “I won’t shed a tear for you, I’ll strike a pose instead.”

However, Lindsay isn’t the first lady to seek fashion revenge. Princess Diana wore a black silk dress by Christina Stambolian to a Vanity Fair dinner the same day her ex-husband, Prince Charles, admitted to marital infidelities. This gorgeous off the shoulder number became known as “the revenge dress” and certainly made fashion history. 


Taylor Swift is another Fashionista who doesn’t just seek revenge with her music lyrics, but with her style as well. Taylor is notorious for kicking boys to the side and showing off some major side boob in return.



Sandra Bullock and Selena Gomez are other celebrities who have gotten revenge in the best fashion. Some perfect revenge styles include sheer, cut-outs, and sexy body-con dresses. These dresses are definitely trending for this season and can be found on my Pinterest board, “Revenge on Racks”.

So ladies keep your head, heels, and standards high, and remember that fashion speaks louder than words. They might not have been the best men, but lets thank them for helping us make it on the best dressed list! And when you can still use an extra confidence boost…here are some wise words by Beyonce:
