Electric Blogarella Bella Christy Cartaya

{Meet Christy.}

I caught up with Christy Cartaya at the Skaist Taylor preview at Neiman Marcus at the Village of Merrick Park. Her bold-hued pants, colorful top and rose-gold accessories made her an instant Bella. Christy isn’t just a sharp dresser, she’s a PR powerhouse. From rubbing elbows with hotrod-driving celebs, thanks to her job at The Collection, to patching up boo-booed knees on her two adorable tots, she tackles it all in style.
