Fireworking SheIn

edited pic
Happy 4th guys!!!   I hope you liked my all white dress I decided to sport on this Independence Day.  Today being the fourth, you know grilling, fireworks & loud music are the ways we celebrate, while at the same time jazzing it all up with a cute fit. This SheIn dress is absolutely perfect. It is such an easy wear. Its closure is a back zipper, which is awesome because I don’t have to worry about constantly tightening my belt to keep this wrapped ensemble closed and classy. I can move about the yacht fancy and free. Now, the flexibility is everything! The high split is AH-MAZ with my Jessica Simpson no heel illusion ankle strap pump. On the flip side...

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...

Versatility

IMG_5637
Yes, you seen it a million times, but leave it to me I will have you thinking you have never seen it before! Once again, we have a another Christian Omeshun exclusive. Gosh, one thing I love most about this garment is how seasonal it is. The fabric is protective enough for a very bitter Winter and light enough for Spring. When I got the garment, I fell in love with the construct of it. The asymmetrical top is giving me mysterious and sexy. Arm out, peeka-booing the belly, and topped with a hint of back out, what else can a girl want to make her happy and set her free?! NOTHING!  An asymmetrical cape…..REALLY! I must admit I felt...

Stylitude

Since you must know all my business, I guess I'll share. I've been running a few errands, meeting a fellow blogger for brunch, then I'm headed to a Bulls basketball game for a first date. I figured this cute little number was fitting to wear for the whole day. If you hadn't noticed I love hats but its something about a skirt and hat. It is the perfect sporty-feminine combo, which is totally trending this Spring and Summer. A hat and skirt never seems to fail when you're going for a fun energetic but sexy look. The bad girl leather softened by the lime green zipper jacket will have someone eyeing you at every turn, gambling whether you're getting in...

Pretty Woman… Big Mistake. Big. Huge

575B1058_resized
I totally had to borrow those words from Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman (one of my favorite movies). Christian Siriano amazed me yet again, with his poised classics.  All I can say is, it'll be a big mistake if he lets it end here. I must admit I owned nothing this classic until now! As you know this girl is all about details, and apparently Siriano is too. Do you see this over sized collar, scooping decollete and the frontal draping of this wrap dress? If this isn't 50s swing I don't know what is. This look is so soft and feminine yet powerful and distinct. Shenell who...

Fabulous Gracia

Shenell_blue_graf-
That moment you know fabulous when you see it. I'd have to say this was one of my moments! The drama Akira is giving with this Gracia top is freaking amazing. Crop top and bat sleeves =genius. I simply love how the crop in the front drives the eye straight to the elongation of the blouse. The distinction is remarkable. Any blouse that catches a daze from on lookers who are inwardly wondering where did she get her top, is a must have. What can I say, its a statement piece that evolves with trend. Honestly, I wasn't exactly sure how I needed to style this girlie- jeans-no, shorts-not quite, then there was Rachel Roy. Rachel Roy's Aztec pencil skirt...

The Jumpy

Shenell_orang-8052
Didn't I tell you that I'm trying to be more casual and simple, here's another look (refer to Bohemian in the City). What makes this casual? I didn't over accessorize I stuck with these hooped Curve Culture earrings and I let the jumpsuit be the jumpsuit. Aren't your eyes drawn to what I'm wearing? Let's bring more focus to this cute little number. This ASOS jumpsuit was super fun! I have to admit it has a Bozo bagginess to it, but trust there's nothing goofy or circusy about it. Believe it or not it has so much versatility, you can actually wear this with a cute pair of Keds, flats, or heels. Now, you know me because I have the hardest...

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...
