Taste The Feeling

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. Before Coca Cola came out with vanilla and cherry etc, I was doing my own thing. Check out how I drink Coke. I won't know if you tried my personal mixes unless you leave a comment, so comment, I have to know what you think! Coke and Banana flavoring Coke, Rum and Banana flavoring Sprite, Mango, Pineapple, and Strawberries (Sonic) Coke, black or dark cherry with cherry grenadine Coke with freshly squeezed orange and lemon juice Coke, mint leaf, cherry grenadine and black cherries Coke and Pineapple syrup Coke and Coconut favoring (add Rum flavor) Coke, vanilla...

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...

How To Mix Prints Like A Pro!

mixed prints
Today's post is not exactly about how amazing I look in this outfit or even where I wore it to impress. I'll save you those details. Instead, I want to teach you the logic behind mixing prints. Hopefully, this will make your life a little easier and your print mixing fashionably approved. Print mixing falls on a continuum of "FABED IT" or "TRIED IT" scale. Follow these steps to "FAB IT." Before we jump into the steps, first comprehend my analogical approach. The best way to get you to see print, is to relate it to volume. I know-crazy, right? Trust me. I'm going to break volume up into three sounds: loud, medium, and low. Now let's get into it. A....

For The Love of Fur

_75B2840con-ps
Hey Guys, I'm so glad to be back actively blogging! I am also so excited you came through for these style deets I'm about to lay on you. Come on, for the come on honey! Anywho, let me start by saying I live for a great fur and faux fur. Am I the only one who believes fur is the answer to all our problems? You sick? Get a fur. Your heart broken? Honey find that fur. You just got fired from your job? No worries, here's a fur. You lost all self esteem? Put this fur on and go find your new beginnings. Every woman should have that thing that makes her feel rich, elegant and important. A fur happens to be...

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...

Autumn’s Bestie Summer

IMG_8814
Hey guys,I'm so glad the blog is up and running again. As you know, although we were fresh into Autumn, I wasn't exactly ready to let go of all my summer brightness. I just had to binge on bright colors once more. Yeah, this was suppose to be a three part series but it ended up being two because the weather totally flipped on me. I swear it went from 0 to 100 real quick, hence causing this series to be shortened. This series is all about bright loud vibrant colors. Clearly I decided to go with denim as it is season transitional. The blue denim was my fave, all the shades of blue and my tweed jacket was what I...

Blossoming Floral

IMG_7331
This Christian Omeshun floral maxi is blossoming all over the place! This dress is different from my fashion norm, but I couldn't resist how freaking adorable and flirty is it. I can not express how refreshed, feminine, and happy this dress made me feel. Let's talk about the style of this maxi. I love the exposure of a woman's décolletage, it's simply beautiful and with the fit bands in the shoulders of this dress, my décolletage and shoulders were peaking all day. These flirty shoulders are just an additive to this doll. Compliments to Christian Omeshun, she had me channeling my inner life size Barbie persona. This floral maxi is long, fun, breezy, and full of color, I felt like Summer in...

FIA Bat Dress

SHENELL_BRIDGE2--3
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...

Boss Chic…WERK!

IMG_6078
What should I do during my lunch break? Check voicemails, make phone calls, catch up on emails. There is always tons for a Boss Chic to do, and no matter how big or small the job, she looks fab while at WERK. Often times we jump into careers that require the woman in the suit to show up, but who said it had to be basic and boring? NOT I said the career woman. This look clocks in at professional and funky. I am absolutely in love with these high waist purplish-blue colored slacks from Eloquii. The color alone screams, NO BUTTON DOWN PLEASE! Immediately I knew anytime there is a funky color you need a funky print. Apparently H&M...
