My name is Ayana, and Yana B. is my blog name. I am a life-long fashion lover born and raised in New York, currently living in the Washington, DC area. I’ve worked full time for companies such as Belk, Nautica, and Urban Outfitters over a span of 10 years in the visual merchandising field. I started this blog when I left the merchandising world for a corporate position. Style Stamped is my passion. I also love to write and have provided articles to sites such as BET and Fashion Bomb Daily.
I have a teenage daughter who recently started High School, a baby boy, and a 12-year old poodle named Harlem. As a working mom I love to travel, hang out with my friends in New York, and put together versatile, creative, and classy looks.
I love to enjoy and appreciate life. At 15 years old I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). At 20 years old, I was diagnosed with end stage renal failure due to Lupus Nephritis and by 21 was on dialysis. At 22, I received a kidney transplant from my mother. You can read my story here. Faith, fashion, family and friends have gotten me through many things in life and I will forever be appreciative. I strive to live my life passionately and in style with the hope of inspiring others.
I am an advocate of Lupus and Organ Donation Awareness and volunteer my services throughout the local DMV area.
