My Outerwear Is My Outfit

Hey Ladies! I know some of you have been waiting all day for this post. Trust, I am so ready to share why it's important to put your outerwear to a multi-use fashion kill. Let's be real, unless you live in Chicago, you buy these coats for a two to three month wear. Considering we are living in a pandemic, some of us have hardly worn a coat at all. Nevertheless, we spend a fair amount of money on a seasonal piece that seems one-dimensional. In my style book, it is far from one-dimensional. A coat is an open dress. A dress. Depending on the length it could be a mini, and classic knee-length, and most definitely and mysterious ankle toucher....

Vintage Gucci In Faux

Whaaaaattttt, GIRL, THIS LEWK! There are certain looks which I find myself very proud of, this is one. I had fun watching each piece come together so fluidly! I was talking to insta-bestie, Summar about how we need to layout a dope faux fur look. I knew I wanted it to be vintage and glass shattering. As I’m styling myself, I discover this is definitely giving Gucci vibes, hence the title. The rest was history. @sincerelysummar The details came together like Jesus himself were curating this for me. I swear, some of it wasn’t intentional on my part. Never-the-less, a marriage was emerging with this wardrobing. Let’s start with the jewelry. Girl, I am wearing an episode of animal planet. The snake...

Street and Styled

Hey Girl!!! Happy Friday to you! How many of you find yourselves up late at night because your creativity is roaming? I do it all the time! When there’s a vision, I can’t rest until it manifests. I gotta admit, this is with fashion, and when God is downloading in me a treasured word. So, any random day, I may find myself up at 2-3-4 in the am, writing or pulling things out of my closet. This thing you see is my heart. This is yet another look that defines me. I love giving you guys so much to see at once. If you’re not mixing and juxtaposing your fashion, you need to. Fashion is all about range. I was aiming...

In Ah- Line Ment

Hey Girl, yes, can you believe we are literally in December. It seems the year started in slow motion  & within a snap is was enigmatic. Gosh, this year was a journey. I can not say I’m ready to step out of this year, but I am hoping I’m equipped for next. This year definitely aligned people we were all forced to step out of our comfort zones. For some, it was the biggest breakthrough of their lives and for others, it was mere heartbreak. Either way, you must trust the Father. I do. Speaking of alignment, this blouse, these pants, this look! Yeah, it’s a bit more on the simple casual work side for me. At the same time, I...

Classic Grandeur

Look girl, did you know polka dots pranced itself into the fashion world during the late Victorian era? Then in the 1920s it strutted itself into the fashion scene, making a loud fuss. Not to toot my own horn (uh-oh did you hear that lol), but I'd swear I was the creator of the pattern. These polka dots are hitting me like a second skin, sweetie. I love my co-ord set from Halogen. Classic attire promises to satisfy a cinched but curved silhouette. In essence, empire waist dresses, waist length tops, and pencil or swing skirts, in particular, were a style structure that was meant to do what girdles did in the 16 to late 1800s- and even in today’s...

Crown of Thorns

Amongst the list of things that warms my heart, I get to share two with you, wrapped in a combo. The Son of God is one and a black artisan is the other. Let’s cut to the chase. The star of my whole outfit is this dynamic hat! When I first placed eyes on it, I knew there was no way all this glory was going to pass me up. All I can remember is, purse, wallet, debit card, and order complete! In that order. As an artist myself, I indulge in the craft of others. “The key to a great artisan is his or her ability to create a masterpiece that tells a story without a narrator”- Shenell. In...

Laudi Vidni x SoShenell

Hey Girl! Yes, it has been a minute, no doubt. In my absence, you have been on my mind. I am making a few shifts that I can’t explain right now. Sometimes when waiting on things to manifest, you have to move in silence as it is still fragile. In essence, my neglect is temporary, I will be back. So now, I have had a few chances to actually put on clothes aside from the weekly black uniform needed for work. This outfit is one I had to share. I did a collab with a contemporary luxury line here in Chicago, Laudi Vidni, it means individual spelled backward. That is crazy dope, right? They gifted me this amazing organic leather bag...

Seed Planting

So, am I the only one who was trying to remember whether or not Joshua had a tree? No, he didn’t but he planted many seeds. Speaking of which, that’s what I’ve been doing. All summer I’ve been shifting and restructuring to stop clocking into other people’s empires and making them great. The shift has taken some lifestyle changes and some consecrated focusing. Oh, how I’ve missed you dearly; it feels good to peek in and say- hello. Thank you to all who came through the DM checking on me. Just know I got two years to make some things shake. One of the hardest things is to plant seeds you’ve never planted before. Once you’ve planted that which you’ve never...
