• DMJ Women: Crystal Lee, Co-Founder of LifeSite

    0 comments / Posted by Samantha Lee

    If you were a DearMissJ fan from back in 2014, you will remember Crystal's photos on our website. She was our model when we first launched our website.
    Why did we ask her to be our very first model? She represents our brand mission #DMJWomen: classy, confident and chic.
    Crystal was the first runner-up in the Miss America 2014 pageant, Miss California 2013. She studied at Stanford and worked at Google. Not impressive enough?  Now, she started her new venture in silicon valley.
    We wanted to hear about her new startup life & styling tips.
    Name: Crystal Lee
    Job: Co-founder, Director of Product and Customer Management
    Company: LifeSite

    DMJ: Describe yourself in 3 words.
    Crystal: "Active, passionate, and quirky!"

    DMJ: Give us a brief description of your typical day!
    Crystal: "Every day is different and presents unique challenges and rewards. I try to squeeze in a workout right after I wake up so I’m more productive for the rest of the day. Then I update my to-do list from the night before and knock out as many deliverables as I can before lunch. After a few calls and a team lunch, you’ll find me mocking up product enhancements and monitoring our customer channels."

    DMJ: Describe your style in 1 word.
    Crystal: "Fresh."

    DMJ:  Do you have any go-to wardrobe pieces for important business meetings?
    Crystal: "A few...a white watch from my mentor, a below-the-knee pencil skirt, stud earrings."

    DMJ: Tell us about your new startup!
    Crystal: "We’re solving the problem of people's personal information being fragmented across many solutions and locations, and not having their most important data in one convenient, secure place. We never know when we’ll need something we don’t have memorized; whether it’s a password or the name of your family member’s allergy medicine. We want to make it easy for everyone to have a secure, digital vault at their fingertips. Check us out at www.lifesite.co!"

    DMJ: Do you have any advice for young businesswomen?  
    Crystal: "Learn to seek and accept feedback. Don’t be too hard on yourself when things don’t work out. Also, identify your preferred way of relieving stress and practice it regularly. After all, it’s marathon, not a sprint!"

    Thank you so much for sharing with us, and good luck!

  • Best of Beauty 2015

    This year has been full of exciting collaborations with style and beauty influencers alike.  Working with companies like Julep and Peach and Lily this year have opened our eyes to some pretty amazing beauty products out there!

    We are all about keeping our skin healthy and beautiful, especially during these brisk winter days!  Peach and Lily offers some great face masks that make our skin look and feel its best.  Sheet face masks have been very popular this year, and we know why - it's the best after work pick-me-up!

    If you couldn't tell by our collaboration with Julep earlier this year, we love the way Julep's beauty products compliment our jewelry pieces.  We created some gorgeous looks to go with our sophisticated ensembles.

    Here's to a great 2015 and an even better 2016!

  • Jewelry Trend Report: 2015

    Where has the year gone? It's already November, and it's getting chilly here in SF (Yes, even in SF. I miss 85 degree September weather!)
    We spent much of the year experimenting with many different styles of earrings from dainty pearls to bold statement pieces. Among those, one of our top sellers was ... Kylie Ear Jackets!

    You might have spotted this look already both on and off the red carpet.

    We love ear jacket earrings because they are fun and versatile. And, of course, we especially love, pearl ear jackets for their more feminine and sophisticated vibes!
    Kylie Ear Jackets are handmade of freshwater pearls, crystals and sterling silver.

    Our Kylie earrings are the first to launch on the website, and we cannot be more excited by how it turned out.
