Sumissura

If you’ve shopped at Chanel, Gucci, or Christian Louboutin, you understand what it means to be treated with the upmost detail and respect. As a person who has been afforded the luxuries of life and who can occasionally splurge on a $2,000 or more item, I have high expectations in brands I shop with. When Sumissura reached out to me I was elated to work with them. They are a size inclusive brand that aim to please you with a tailored fit. A brand that prides themselves on fit accuracy gets an A in my book. I was overwhelmed with the many fabric options and cut that it took me a week to decide on how I was going to...

Comfy & Feminine

Hey Guys! Yes it been a while since I've done a post but don't worry, I've been posting my butt off on social media. Be sure to follow me for all the latest. Starting this week I'll be putting out a polka dot series and this is how it's starting. The concept wasn't exactly planned until I realized I had some pretty cool polka pieces that could really shine. Also, I thought doing this series I'd play with some style range. I guess I'd consider this look comfy and feminine. This look is all about comfort, which I am really about despite all the heels and skirts. To date this is my favorite Kurt Geiger Bag This look was all about bringing it back...

Abstract Perspective

Come on in, come on in! I know you're here for all the detail goodies, but first, can we chat about it?! As mentioned in my IG caption, I love giving you so much to see at once. Fashion is nothing shy of art. Think about it, you are mixing paints, texture, and patterns, all on a 4D canvas. It sets the mood and tone when people see you. Their compliments and stares are a testament to that. How did you feel when you saw me in this look? Girl, let me tell you, I call this look the Abstract Perspective because the outfit renders fluid complexity. Although it flows, there are so many contrasting components that has your eyes jumping around...

Editorial Flash

It is impossible to go unnoticed when you're dressed like this. Do you believe, how you dress determines who and what you attract? Well it’s so true. What you wear projects your character. The feeling you get when you are fashionably expressing yourself can not be described. Every woman has the right to be distinct, look unique, and own it. This outfit does just that for me. Girl, LET-ME-TELL-YOU! What you see here is a masterpiece. It took God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to sculpt this dunamis creation of a human. I take my existence personal, and I clothe it in the best. Macy’s I.N.C brand did a superb job with this faux leather drama sleeve blazer-BRAVO! But...

Rhythm In The Mix

It’s that moment you’re strolling on Instagram and see an item YOU GOTTA HAVE! You have no earthly idea exactly what you’re gonna do with it but whatever it is, it needs to be epic. Do you feel me right now? Girl, these slacks are it! When I got home, I laid them out on my bed for 4 or 5 days. I typically do this to allow myself to see what the garment-any garment, is asking me to do with it. "What you want to do with a particular garment never trumps what the garment calls for". Although, I had not yet known what other garments would accompany such an in-your-face type of pattern, by day 3, at minimum,...

My Outerwear Is My Outfit

Hey Ladies! I know some of you have been waiting all day for this post. Trust, I am so ready to share why it's important to put your outerwear to a multi-use fashion kill. Let's be real, unless you live in Chicago, you buy these coats for a two to three month wear. Considering we are living in a pandemic, some of us have hardly worn a coat at all. Nevertheless, we spend a fair amount of money on a seasonal piece that seems one-dimensional. In my style book, it is far from one-dimensional. A coat is an open dress. A dress. Depending on the length it could be a mini, and classic knee-length, and most definitely and mysterious ankle toucher....

Vintage Gucci In Faux

Whaaaaattttt, GIRL, THIS LEWK! There are certain looks which I find myself very proud of, this is one. I had fun watching each piece come together so fluidly! I was talking to insta-bestie, Summar about how we need to layout a dope faux fur look. I knew I wanted it to be vintage and glass shattering. As I’m styling myself, I discover this is definitely giving Gucci vibes, hence the title. The rest was history. @sincerelysummar The details came together like Jesus himself were curating this for me. I swear, some of it wasn’t intentional on my part. Never-the-less, a marriage was emerging with this wardrobing. Let’s start with the jewelry. Girl, I am wearing an episode of animal planet. The snake...

Caramel Latte-Double Shot

Do you see this look RIGHT HERE?! When my insta-bestie, Summar suggested we do a cream and chocolate ensemble, I honestly didn’t expect the wardrobing to present so distinct and polished. The styling is blazing with boss vibes and richness. If no other fit I’ve worn suggests lifestyle, this look undoubtedly does! How did I execute such an elevated outfit? For starters, I really wanted the outfit to deliver more cream-latte than coffee or mocha, because cream, winter white, and beige are just so gorgeous during the winter season. I think the last time I actually embarked on a look like this was two or three years ago. That said, with my second attempt to go winter white, I did not...

Nothing To Be Played With

Some garments remind you of how bad you are in the world. This look did that for me. For starters, this color blocking is the diagram for a color theory class, honey. I can hear the teacher saying; “Turn to chapter 5 in your text. The lesson is on, how to color block like, SoShenell!" As far as color, it is all about showcasing the primaries. Yes, red and blue are primary colors that can be perfectly married in an outfit. Although, visually, they graciously fight for attention. I mean, do you blame them, one is cold and the other is hot, but don’t forget opposites attract. I have this awkward obsession with the gravitational pull of two contrasting entities;...

Iconic In Tweed

I know you’ve seen several of my post on Instagram lately. Yes, I am a few blog posts behind; no worries, I am making up for it right now! About this look; if someone were to ask me what my style is, I would put this very look on display. Girl, it helps me not have to use words to describe myself. In this look, I played with texture, patterns, and color. This look is luxuriously distinct-exactly how I prefer to be! I’m looking really iconic in tweed if I can say so myself! Now, is it me or does this outfit take you to Harlem, anywhere between 1940s-2021? It definitely takes me there! If you were to break this ensemble...
