Fashioned Perfection

Shenell_greendoor- (1)
Don't you just love when you don't have to work as hard to make something GREAT! Let me tell you hunny this freaking sexy as ever little number was already a styled masterpiece. This outfit spoke just as clear as day "Shenell, add a nude shoe and walk" I did just that. This Rachel Roy two piece garment was designed to fashion perfection. The lines are super chic and it demands all the attention. Please don't act like you don't see the splits on the sides of this top, driving the eyes straight to the curves in my hips. What I love about Rachel Roy is, she's gonna add a pinch of feminine drama. The craftsmanship is ridiculous with this chopped-asymmetrical side tail. If...

FIA Bat Dress

OMG is exactly what I said when I saw this dress! I pride myself on finding things for you guys that are different and unique, FIA was just that. The bat pattern was one of the most genius attractions to this dress, the pattern is so themed- Halloweenish yet it managed to maintain its softness, girly appeal, and it was far from scary. I think it has EVERYthing to do with the style of the dress. The long exaggerated bell sleeve and short, wide, prissy fit of the pattern remained a beauty with the beast. Now can we talk about these African printed pockets… The pockets represent the culture and destination of FIA. Yes the dress is from the motherland...

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...
