Advisory board


At four years old, Summer Bellessa started her modeling career and by 17 had the opportunity to travel the world, working in fashion capitals that include: Paris, Hamburg, New York, Miami, London, and Tokyo. Summer had the pleasure of working with many brands, including Clairol, Sears, Target, Shiseido, Secret, Glamour, AT&T, and Vidal Sassoon. Experiences that opened her eyes to the world outside her hometown of Chicago Heights, IL.

Her metamorphosis from model into entrepreneur began as she effortlessly brought creative and talented people together to create ELIZA magazine, a fashion/lifestyle publication found in Barnes & Nobles across the country.

Today, Summer creates content on many levels: as a YouTuber at The Girls With Glasses, writer at, as well as an actress (you can watch her in found footage thriller, Amber Alert.)

Her crowning creation has been her family. With husband, Kerry Bellessa, they raise their two loving and rambunctious boys, Rockwell and Phoenix, with a baby girl on the way.

Summer has a brilliant ability to bring motherhood and stylish living under one roof. In her clever heartwarming post “Toddler Stylist,” she allowed her 4 year old todress her for a whole week. It went viral, leading her to be featured on The Today Show, The View, Buzzfeed and even landed her a TED talk.
