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!

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...

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...

Sleeveless

My goal is to always do it the way you've never seen it done. Creativity is my strongest suit and I think I play that hand so well. This look forced me to play my wild card. After trying on this two piece set from Eloquii.mmediatedly fell in love this two piece set from Eloquii. The print in the front and solid in the back- ugh ever so sweet. Not taking the print all the way through prevented print overload syndrome. Of course, I had to fire up this medium sound (Click Here) with my red Zara sock booties and Asos red beret, swanky right? So here we have it, great color combo, awesome fit, but not enough. I checked...

Brim Meets the Neck

IMG_7934
So, this look is fairly basic. There are no abstract prints, rocking fringe or over accessorized novelties. What makes this look a magnet of interest is the analogous color pallet (colors directly beside each other on the color wheel. In this case mine are blue, purple and fuchsia), extremely chic frame work and how the brim meets the hat. Now, lets talk mysterious, shall we? Often times people feel one must have all the bells and whistles to emerge mystic. If that is you, allow me to redirect your thinking. Structure and fabric exaggerations are chosen’s as it relates to a more discrete description of mysterious. Alexander McQueen mastered this art. In the beginning of his career his textiles were extremely...

SoShenell's Coke Mixology I have loved Coke as long as I can remember! Over the years I have acquired a different mix of Coke.

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...

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...
