Modern Romanticism

IMG_0768
"When you're fluid & solid at the same dang time! Scientifically; My matter changes with the environment Divinely; I'm indestructible!" -Shenell   Girl! I know I’m always claiming a look is by far by fave, but this time I’m for real! I finally styled my Fia Factory top as my heart desired. It’s a beautiful seasonal piece and full of character, so I wanted to fashionably take it to a place that was most fitting.  After contemplating, I knew it needed layering to accomplish a chic and even foreign appeal, besides I did purchase it from Lagos, Nigeria honey. Most recently, I wore this look to a birthday party exactly as I had imagined it. From the time I walked in, to the time I left,...

My Top 8 Eloquii Coats

498A3685
Heyyy guys!!! Soooo fall is my favorite season. I love how outerwear has an impeccable way of translating as part of your outfit. From belted to statement coats, fall encapsulates a vast variety of my personal style, I hardly ever find the need to take off my coat when entering into a building and neither should you!  I composed this list from Eloquii because truth is, they curate amazing coats year after year that translate to classic and timeless pieces. Check out my list and tell me what your favorites are. You are #noprisonerofyourbody so walk the runway fiercely and fearlessly. See you next runway!

Classic Irreverence

IMG_0445
People often ask, how would I describe my style? I always respond unpredictable. Fashionably, I will replace unpredictable with the style trend, show-off. Showing off is exactly what I’m doing in this outfit. I have this philosophy; one can risk being forgotten unless you show off. One of the things I like most about this look is the color pop of mauve and the large black and white plaid panels. Anyone who appreciates a good clean color pallet would agree, if they don’t remember your name, they will describe this outfit-color first. These are simply not colors you see all the time, together. Strutting these Akira pompom pumps lures you into the classic irreverence trend, I so love. Mixing style trends...

Proceed with Caution, Industrial Fashion Ahead!

IMG_0257
As we cautiously veer into the left lane, lets take a moment to think. What has fashion come to? Utility wear is definitely going from hard at work to blazing the runway. Who would have thought road work inspired wear would continue to evolve as it has. I bought this Off-White belt in March of this year. I took me a while to figure out how I wanted to handle it so to speak. Jeans were an option, a pant suit, and of course leather, but I was trapped somewhere between faux fur and tulle. Mixing hard and soft intrigued my fashion curiosity, so I did it! Wide and fluffy tulle would swallow the belt. Pairing this BCBG skirt with...

Fringe with Benefits

IMG_0094
 A look, right? Let me say this, I knew I needed to do something with this fringe & I needed to do something with these polka dots. What the heck, put them together and be fabulous. The two pieces expressed chic, sophisticated, and modernly classic. The flapper like fringe is completely classic and vintage, but the pant is totally modern, an 80’s vibe for sure. The combo drives this look to fashion perfection, and the sandals adds a little bow on top while doing so. Now enjoy brunch with hubby, and some “ME” time by going jewelry shopping at your favorite jewelry store. Tips Mix fashion genres, it makes fashion fun This is a jacket that I pinned together to give a top appeal. For...

Glammed Varsity Mascot

IMG_6752
About this look. It felt really good going back to having feelings of high school days. This was the look you wear on game day at your 10-year class reunion. All sparkly, and classy, and varsity like, okay? Other than that, I wasn’t so happy with this look. I should have warned you, a moment of honesty was coming. Yes, this is my least favorite look. I liked it in real life, I'm  not a fan of how it delivered in pictures. In addition, I have lost some weight and all of my pieces were too big. Other than the blue here, I was feeling pretty darn blue as well. Oh, another rant, I should have done my part in...

Classic Picasso

IMG_6682resize
Need I explain this look?! If you guys haven’t already discovered, I love old vintage style. I am giving you all the French, vintage, and Picasso vibes wearing my Eloquii top and beret. This top has all the character you need in this look. I actually fell in love with this top, while styling someone else in it. She opt not to buy it, but I was definitely in swipe mode after she took it off. What’s that old saying, “Someone else's trash, is anothers treasure?” She wasn’t exactly throwing it away, but I definitely hit a gold mine. This top is so flexible, what can’t you wear with it?! I decided on these super stretchy stirrup leggings, for the...

Winter Pastels

resize
  Hey Girl, hey! So, I have such a love for cold colors in the late Fall and Winter seasons. When beige, creams, and off whites accompany an outfit with light hues of pastels, as a pop of color, it gives me chills. It puts me in the mind frame of mint refreshers. Let’s just say, if WinterFresh had an outfit, this would so be it! What you think? Well other than looking like minty breath, this look was truly a no brainer. Eloquii did me well when they dropped this high-waist fringe skirt in my view. This is nothing but a vintage piece, just made in modern times. Which makes this skirt as timeless as the first rendition of its...

The Premme Factor

IMG_6432
Ok, I had a blast wearing this Premme look. It was hard for me to grasp what type of look this was, until I envisioned myself in Brooklyn passing through a crowd of bell bottom wearing and afro picking creatives. Since my initial thought was 70’s, my vision confirmed it. I am digging the funk of this groovy get up! Ya see, even using slang vernacular, got me feeling even more boogie about this outfit representing the 70’s era of fashion. I’ll roll with it. So, in my mind, my home-girl Foxy Brown flew in to see her bestie-me! When we’re together, it’s time to create some Good Times- the black Thelma and Louise honey! What is fun without a...

Forbidden Fruit

IMG_6408
Dressed like this, I feel  I have beamed from the confines of my 1800's Victorian home and landed in America, specifically Chicago. The look is so vintage and very old world British, which wasn't intentional, (ig's @joannethescammer voice) honestly, truly. Perhaps my unexpected embark on the Victorian era style sense, bares all the proof that Target is becoming more and more classic within their design layouts. Target's fall fashion naturally takes us back in time, with a modern twist. I say encore! To be completely frank with you, I knew I liked this snake print blouse and faux skirt together, but after styling it, "Like" was an understatement. I am in fashion love! Considering I decided to coordinate the same...
