Session Title: The Social Science – Productivity Tools You Need to Soar on Social Media   

Born in Delaware and raised in Atlanta, Cari’s discerning eye and love for fashion developed at a young age, when she would watch her mother sew beautiful garments for her clothing store she owned and managed in South Philadelphia.  After completing her Marketing degree from Georgia State University and spending a few years in Corporate America, Cari decided to follow her passion and set her sights on a career as an Image Consultant and Stylist. She started her fashion blog LAYLLAH with her sister Kay Lynn in 2014 as an online outlet to showcase their affordable, easy, accessible and edgy-chic style to readers all over the world. Just under 2 years later, the blog displaying clean lines, monochromes, neutral tones and classic pieces has become a go-to source for fashion inspirations and amassed a social media audience of over 56,000 followers. Taking a modern minimalist approach to style, LAYLLAH is catching the attention of local, regional and national media outlets as one of the popular fashion blogs to follow.  With her keen eye for detail and fresh approach to styling, Cari's ability to simultaneously predict trends, and transcend them, has solidified her presence in an ever-changing industry.  Cari has created content for brands such as Halston Heritage, Zara, Diane Von Furstenberg, J Brand and H&M and continues to pave the way for bloggers inspired by her journey.
