IMG_6922.jpgfinal
  What happens when Claire Sulmers, Founder of Fashionbombdaily.com, lists you as Chicago’s Top 10 Fashion “Bomb Bloggers”? Then to add an even bigger reward she invites you to sip and shop with her during her Cocktails with Claire event. OMG the first thought is WHAT TO WEAR! Now let’s put something into perspective, Claire is a fashionista anointed by the fashion gods honey. So me being Shenell, I was definitely on make an impression- kill em mode. This twig fringe dress did that! The few details played a big part in my attraction to this very easy piece. The dress alone was the statement. A dress like this needed no help, you see what I’m saying…. EASY. In addition the...

Bohemian In The City

bohemian 3
  To style this look was crazy for me. What many of you don’t know is, I struggle with putting together casual pieces and still feel trendy. In my personal life, dresses and stilettos make me feel like the best me as a blogger. I typically don’t allow myself too much casual freedom (a natural challenge). There was a particular day Chicago’s weather had me feeling real free and out of my comfort zone. These feelings came at the perfect time, because it summoned me to tap into my Bohemian style sense. Considering I have shackled myself fashionably to dresses, slacks, and stilettos, I wanted this look to convey freedom and anti-conventionalism. I said Shenell, “Dare to break your fashion...

May not be CoCo, but its definitely Shenell

The title speaks for itself, this look is so me! I just marvel over a poised, classic, with a hint of edge outfit. What I like most about this look is, it hits in all the right places. Can you say EVERYTHING!!! This H&M jacket is giving it to the people. It sets the theme for vintage style. The texture, colors and print just jumps at you and takes your attention. To tell the truth (whispers), I kinda feared styling this the “RIGHT WAY.” Because it’s so busy I didn't want to do too much and I surely wasn’t interested in being safe. So what did I do? I had to continue telling the story the jacket was telling. Then...

Boss Chic…WERK!

IMG_6078
What should I do during my lunch break? Check voicemails, make phone calls, catch up on emails. There is always tons for a Boss Chic to do, and no matter how big or small the job, she looks fab while at WERK. Often times we jump into careers that require the woman in the suit to show up, but who said it had to be basic and boring? NOT I said the career woman. This look clocks in at professional and funky. I am absolutely in love with these high waist purplish-blue colored slacks from Eloquii. The color alone screams, NO BUTTON DOWN PLEASE! Immediately I knew anytime there is a funky color you need a funky print. Apparently H&M...

Lemonade Hold The Tea

lemonade2
Sooo I was so confused what to call this look. I went from taxi cab confessions to cap off the duster! Then there was lemons, tea, juice and finally lemonade hold the tea. One thing I wasn't confused about was putting together this dynamic look. I pulled out this old duster coat from ASOS and had to restyle it. Last year I wore it as a dress-belted. This year I wanted to make it more street chic. I added the pencil skirt and cute tank which is pretty chic, but where is the street? Hunny this leather baseball cap and leather belt added a dope mixture. When trying to make things fun and complex, play with patterns like I did. The...

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...
