When I 1st met Stania of Miss Sassy it was about 3 years ago in DC. We were both stylists for a fashion/shopping event in DC and we immediately clicked over vintage fashion and inspiring/empowering (young) women. Today, she is still one of the most stylish and genuinely sweet women I’ve met through blogging. Based in NOVA (Northern Virginia), Stania has a true passion for fashion. She knows how to dress her body, style others, and has a big heart. The Haitian-born fashionista also enjoys mentoring young women. Check out the rest of her interview below and be sure to visit her blog, Miss Sassy.

Great food and drinks! Ok, ok….besides that, the ability to help others look and feel great.

Regular exercise (3-4 times a week) and get plenty of sleep. I am very good at creating a balance between my social and professional life. I know when to take time out for myself to recharge and refocus.
How did you find your passion and purpose in life? What was your “ah-ha” moment?
It found me….it came naturally. The more honest I was about what made me happy, the more time I spent connecting to those things and people.
Any advice for someone who’s trying to find their passion and purpose in life?
Be honest with yourself about what makes you happy and inspires you. Don’t just stop there, do something with it and about it.
How can we keep up with you?
