Fashion for Petite Women

by Malissa Lewis
Hi everyone,  welcome to my blog! I am Malissa, a federal employee by day and a part-time brand ambassador with a passion for fashion. I learned to be self reliant and enterprising at a tender age by working with my grandmother who was a seamstress. That spirit and my undeniable passion for fashion drove me to create OutTheBoxbyM, a fashion blog displaying my personal style, trends and fashion tips. My friends would tell you that I have an effortless sense of style, which is grounded in sophistication and elegance.



In 2007, I graduated from Pace Law School and started my career in the public sector. Despite having a successful career, my passion for fashion never faded. I started blogging as an escape from my routine life and quickly realized that fashion is my creative outlet.


The opportunity to attend the last three seasons of  NYFW gave me a glimpse into the fashion industry, especially on how trends start on the catwalks or on the street, and filter down to retail. I am enjoying my blogging journey and am excited to see where it takes me.  Make sure you subscribe for updates, alerts and the latest fashion news. Enjoy!
