I LOVE fashion. My first words were “shoes” so I was destined to be in this industry. My middle name is Chanel just spelled Shannel so yeah you get it. As you already know I love color and my hometown New York City. To be more specific Brooklyn!!! SO what better place to take in all of the sights and get some exercise than walking the Brooklyn Bridge.
This blog is and will always be about having fun with fashion. My formula…..have fun and break all the fashion rules. Hmm..this is kind of my life mantra. Keeping with the theme having fun, I am blessed to be a mentor to 3 wonderful teenage girls. Since one is away at college (Hi Mickey) the other 2 accompanied me on this adventure. The weather was great. A little windy, crowded, but crispy and sunny. I allowed one to be the photographer and the other to creatively direct the entire shoot. I must say they did an astonishing job.
Whose not a fan of hashtags? The most recent hashtag that’s been circulating the social media waves is #BlackGirlMagic. I decided to customize a t-shirt with the phrase #BlackGirlMagic.What does it mean? Feeling empowered and knowing that you are somebody. I wanted to use fall colors, however this t-shirt can be worn all year round. Pleats and midi skirts are huge this season. Don’t be afraid to wear a midi skirt with sneakers. Its very athleisure. If you don’t have a track jacket stop what you are doing and go get one. On those cool days you don’t always have to wear a sweater try a track jacket. They are lightweight and go with literally everything.
