The brilliance of Brittany

Meridian native Brittany Davis Morris talks fashion through blog, rocks style for InStyle Makeover issue

MERIDIAN — Like many women, Brittany Davis Morris is passionate about fashion. However, her interest goes far beyond deciding what to wear from day to day.

    Three years ago while living in Boston, Mass., the Meridian native started the blog "Brilliance of B" to, as she notes in the site's introduction, push herself creatively and to explore her style sense. Morris not only talks about the latest fashion trends, but also offers style and accessory advice as well as introduces complementary items, such as makeup, nail and hair products and tools.

    The blog also features photos of Morris modeling some of her own fashion creations. While those photos are usually reserved for the site, two of them can currently be seen in InStyle Makeover, a special issue of the popular magazine that features favorite style tips – from the best cuts of 2012 to fall must-haves.

    It was while reading the April issue of InStyle, that Morris noticed a request to readers.

    "It said if you submitted pictures of yourself wearing something that was inspired by InStyle, you might be featured in the magazine," she said. "I thought, 'Okay, I might as well as try.'"

    To her surprise, Morris was contacted by a representative of the fashion magazine. The rep asked her a few questions about herself, as well as Morris' fashion style. However, she did not say whether she would be featured in the magazine.

    "I sort of had to hear it from someone else," Morris said. "I was on Facebook and someone said, 'Brittany, you're in InStyle.'"

    Two of four photos Morris submitted are featured in the special issue, which arrived on news stands in mid-September.

    "I thought it was going to be in one of the regular issues, but the Makeover edition is even better because it's on stands longer, for a couple of months," she said.
