Alysse Dalessandro

Alysse Dalessandro is a size inclusive designer, fashion and beauty writer, body positive advocate, plus size fashion blogger, professional speaker, and all-around loudmouth. After graduating from Loyola University Chicago with a double-major in Journalism and Gender Studies, this Cleveland-based entrepreneur is best known as the owner/designer for body positive fashion brand Ready to Stare  and its corresponding personal style blog, #StareStyle. Her writing can also be found on Bustle and The Curvy Fashionista. Alysse hopes her writing resonates with the same people that she designs for: those who believe in following their passion, loving themselves and inspiring others to do the same.
