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,...

Django Who? She’s Shadow

IMG_0568
Black is the sexiest color ever! I saw this jacket at Eloquii and was getting all kinds of feels. It has so much character and you can do so much with it; throw on a fitted skirt, slacks, wear it open, closed, or even do a slogan tee or turtleneck, again so much. The jacket being the baddie that it is, I wanted to tap into that militant persona it held. After doing so, I couldn’t see past the feminine/masculine trend I knew I needed to commit to! Am I the only one who believe women are the sexiest when adding a male’s touch? I attribute this to the genic hybrid of the Wo-man. This fashion trend speaks to the...

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...
