Launched in 2013 as the army for the slaying fashionista, the cutting-edge creative and the bold believer, Adorned in Armor serves as a source of killer inspiration and encouragement towards their audacious dreams.
If you love dressing up, acquiring skills to presenting your best self at work, and/or reading unique and enlightened perspectives on today’s issues, you’ve joined the right army. AIA serves to satisfy your eyes and soul through style posts, faith and inspiration, and the occasional go-getter tips for the creative in professional settings. You’ll leave AIA feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world when equipped with the weapons to put your best gladiator-cladded foot forward.

Here at Adorned in Armor, we believe:

  • In girlbossness. This is a women supporting women zone. We wholeheartedly believe in helping you achieve your goals!
  • In uplifting others. This is an outlet where the only attacks will be between you and those life obstacles.
  • Loving fashion isn’t vain. You can be spiritually woke and look fabulous. In other words, you can be the fashionable woman that you are and still have substance. With class, too.
  • In Jesus. I’m an unashamed believer so everything I say and do is stemmed from my faith but I will never force my beliefs on you.


Adorned in Armor has been featured on the Independent Fashion Blog, the InfluenceHer Collective, Cosmopolitan UK’s site and nominated for the 2014 Best International Fashion Blog. Some brand collaborations include Teen Vogue, Maybelline, Dove, Shopbop, Banana Republic, Asos and several others.
AIA was inspired by Ephesians 6’s message about putting on the full armor of God. Day to day, we unknowingly tread the battlefield defenseless! How can you expect victory when you’re not adorned in armor?  You have to dress yourself in the proper uniform in order to fight victoriously.
Now that we covered the essence of AIA, let’s delve into the creator of the site: me, Tarah-Lynn Saint-Elien! You all can call me Tarah, though.

Hey, ladies! Tarah, here. I’m a Teen Vogue fashion writer, pageant queen and CEO.


Through landing internships at Elle Magazine and PBS and collaborating with brands such as Maybelline and Banana Republic, my work experience has assisted in catapulting me into becoming a Teen Vogue It Girl and now, a Teen Vogue Fashion Writer.


I graduated from Rider University Summa Cum Laude with her BA in Communications with a 3.9 GPA and 6 honors in 2016, and achieved my Master's degree from Syracuse University in Journalism Innovation May 2018. I'm currently seeking on-air hosting opportunities and video brand collaborations so if you need someone, I'm your girl! In the meantime, I'm working on my first book of my three book deal with Baker Publishing!


For my most recent inspirational work, join me as I whisk you away to Dressed for Battle Podcast - a place where you can listen to struggle stories of warrior women and learn to armor up with the right weapons to win at life. You can also find me styling, hosting events and speaking at self-worth and branding workshops. Follow my adventures @adornedinarmor!


I have a long way to go but I'm happy to have you with me! Hope you continue to come back so we can get to know one another and grow together as we fight our way to our God-given destinies together!
