Thank for stopping by! My name is Aly (or Alyssa Rose, if you're my mother). I'm a 20-something year old product designer, graphic designer (all my blog components are designed by me), thrifted/bargain fashionista,  all-around style enthusiast, and creative things hobbyist. I love to try just about everything so you will find a variety of interests posted about on this blog from crafts and home goods projects, to fashion, design, and all around adventures.

I live in Brooklyn with my (very talented graphic designer) boyfriend, and my little whacked out puggle (pug/beagle mix) named Whiskey. I love tattoos, art nouveau, being eclectic, and collecting beautiful things, thinking up projects, and discovering more and more of the NYC that I call home.

In November of last year I started my own online shop 'The Rose Alley', where I sell mainly vintage clothing and other items that are a mix of my own personal collection over the years and items that I find in my travels and have to share with the world. I am learning and loving every minute of it!

I am always looking for connections and collaborations whether it be products, events, or posts. As a designer both full time and freelance, I am experienced with client relations between companies and individuals. Please see my policies page for more information, or if you'd like to work with me. Thanks!
