FLINT TWP. — No need to travel to New York, Paris or other fashion capitals to acquire high-style looks often worn by celebrities at red-carpet events.
Two local fashionistas have opened a customization shop where they can transform the ordinary into extraordinary works of art.
Christyles in Fashion, G-3410 Fenton Rd., opened in August. But co-owners Christa McGee of Flint and Paris Bailey of Flint Township have been busy for years building a following among fashion-forward women who are looking for something different, especially for wedding, proms, birthdays and other special occasions.
Bling, ice, embellishment, bedazzling — call it what you will — their shop specializes in adding customized decoration to jewelry, shoes, denim, cell phone cases, work ID badges, tutus, sunglasses and much more.
McGee and Bailey, who are cousins, often collaborate on designs to create an ensemble look for clients. McGee specializes in shoe decorating and Bailey in jewelry. You bring it and they will bling it. Many sample items also
