Formation | The Lookbook

Shenell Killa 02
The Lookbook “I am an Heir of Curves” In Formation, history reigns supreme. I am the epitome of my mother, her mother, and her mother’s- mother. My curves are the jewels of my heirloom, we are rich and it does my body good. I am the proud inheritor of thickness. My breast, my legs, and my derrière are the reason they call me onore. (Translation endowed) “I am not a Prisoner of my body” In Formation, I will never accuse my body of being shackles to my beauty. There is liberty to every roll and curve my body possess. My silhouette is not a hindrance to anything or anyone I want. I will not succumb to the bondages of society, that my beauty is not...

Restoring Self Love after Marriage

As a child I remember playing this game called “House,” of course I was the mama, who had two or three children and my whole house was within the confines of my bedroom, which was shared with my sisters. In this home of my mine, I would cook, clean, and await for my absolutely flawless husband to arrive from work. My imagination comprised a vivid imagery of this tall, hardworking, serious (In retrospect sexy) clean cut, cool man. My emotions channeled the love he had for his children and most importantly his infinite love for me no matter what. He would kiss me and stand close when he wanted to talk to me, he would give me googly eyes like...

Poised in Feathers

poised in feathers
Hey girl heyyy! Ladies where do I start with this beauty? This dress speaks to every distinct character of my personality. ZbyZavarra knew what to do for women who want to wear who she is characteristically and physically.                    This feather dress is classic, rich, bold, distinct, full of attitude and poised just-like-me. She fits like a glove, giving thanks to the built in Spanx that gave me more confidence and smoothness along these curves. Couldn't nobody tell me I wasn't the missing character from "Harlem Nights", which happens to be my favorite movie. Haha can't you see this dress being perfect for that movie! Ahhh, I love it!!!! The amazingly restrictive...

Leather Meets Floral

YES SPRING HAS ARRIVED!!!! The season of Bright Arrays!! Blinding Neons!! Seamless Nudes! & Adored Pastels…….RIGHT?! (BLANK STARE) OF COURSE YOU FEEL THIS WAY..UGH!! Don’t get me wrong I love coming into the spring season out of hibernation, however I am always reluctant to tuck away one of the sexiest pieces of winter-MY BOOTS! Let’s be real ladies to think spring is to think soft, feminine, and sweet; rather than sexy, flirty and daring. I’m so down with the Winter Spring movement thus I introduce Leather Meets Floral. In this OOTD I was excited to see the mixtures of textures and patterns blossom. The sheer kimono, denim shorts, and leather boots were a perfect exemplification of springs cool and warm...

Pleated Prints

pleated prints3
  This is all about a little bit of extra being just enough, its taking a strut into classic fun. For those who know me, you know I’m about edge and classic with a hint of unpredictable, I’d have to say this is one of those moments. I wanted to have fun by mixing the patterns of crosses and cheetah print together (would that have been considered a blood sacrifice in biblical times lol). Mixing dominate prints together is an automatic attention catcher. The key to pattern blending is to compliment, not necessarily to flow. This concept typically yields fashion acceptance hence its questionable at first sight. Be wise about pattern choices in order to induce a retrospective positive response at...
