Rhea- (ree-uh) 
that's her name and don't forget it please ;)

Rhea 's blog is all about fashion from her point of view, at only 4'11" she likes to relate to all the other petite women and mom's who also adore fashion. 

Rhea Santos is currently living in San Diego, California. She was born and raised in New York. 
She started her own clothing business where she designs and hand makes clothing for Women and Girls. It is called Luna Lavender Dreams, where she discovered her inner bohemian style and for the care-free dreamers.
She designs and crochets beach wear clothing, which can also be worn to festivals and during the summer. She also makes headbands for little girls/babies and baby moccasins. 

Background: Rhea had a unique life style growing up. She always loved art and fashion ever since she was a little girl. She's worked for a Radio Station WOR 710AM, where she would share her back to school shopping tips and what's on trend for the upcoming season. In 2003, her first internship was for Betsey Johnson where she was the youngest candidate since she was only in high school at the time. Usually only college students were allowed to intern but Rhea did amazing on her interview, and they took her in right away. 
Rhea's also interned for Vivienne Tam (2003) and Cosmopolitan Magazine (2007). 
Rhea's been in and out of the fashion industry giving her time to help out during Mercedez Benz Fashion Week in New York behind the scenes. She's helped out in shows for Isaac Mizrahi, Monique Lhuiller, Vera Wang, Betsey Johnson, Anna Sui, Nicole Miller, Tracy Reese, and Venexiana.
2011 She finally got to attend her first fashion show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York and it was for I C B by Prabal Gurung. She got to sit in the second row as an attendee and it hit her that she actually didn't have to work a show for the first time. It was a great feeling and accomplishment since she's always dreamed of being an attendee. Rhea then started Sew Stylish Rhea to share her sewing projects, her passion for fashion from her personal style, fabric shopping, and fashion/beauty events she attends. In 2013 she collaborated with The Mobile Media Lab and Insta Meet for New York Fashion Week, where she was one of the selected Instagrammer's to attend Tommy Hilfiger's Fall 2014 Fashion show. She got to take pictures of behind the scenes and capture images of the fashion show, meet Tommy in person too which was also a wonderful experience. 

She is also a guest contributor writer for My Life On and Off the Guest List
