For my birthday this year, in true creative form I did a photo shoot for my Designed ByXayLi 2012 collection!! These photos will be released in a separate publication.
However i’d like to share the process of my Shoot along with a few sneak peeks in this post!!
I began designing and sewing because I hated going places and seeing other people in the same clothing. And I also have a love for creating funky pieces. I began as an accessory designer and graduated to garments soon after!
After wearing my own creations while being out and about I began to get orders for custom designs.

On March 28th to celebrate my everlasting youth I did a shoot!!
My amazing boyfriend who Supports me 100% in everything I do (and I do almost everything) lol Decided along with his brother To help me put this event together.
My excitement could not be contained. My amazing Photographer TommyT is one to be very aware of. His passion for photography is clearly portrayed in his work. He was able to give me some amazing shots!! I couldn’t have worked with anyone else.
My childhood Love Adana and I were the hair makeup and wardrobe stylists and everything was put together just as I wanted it.
Styling for the Shoot!
Hard at work on Set!!
The people I needed around me the most for this flower to unfold were right by my side!! Sean Hutch alongside Trey were the best directors one could have asked for. And everyone needs someone like Billy on their set!! Billy was transporting girls left and right with his 6 foot 7 inches bodyguard built. The models were also absolutely amazing. And Hari Marie Slayed it all!
Everything went So well and I put an outfit on Pose and ended up w a buch of likes in less than two hrs!!

Stay tuned for so much more guys. This is really just a scratch on the surface!!
There are some times when I’m too lazy to get my Duo out and do my lash strips. So on my lazy dayz and for a more neutral look I use Natural Angel Lash Extender “lashes with Wings”.
I was pretty skeptical about using it. But I decided to give it a try! I love it! Can’t live without it now. I have ample length eyelashes, (sidebar, why do guys have amazing lashes and they really dont need them. Hmphh) Anywhoo. This product totally gives my lash a boost. It also lengthens my lower lashes too! You use it with your fave Mascara and wala. Beautiful lash length! And this is just two coats of it. You could def get a thicker and longer effect!
Sry my before and after pics are totally mixed up. Lol. Smh. And my eyeliner wasn’t that neat. But you get the point. Right?
