My Style: Blackout


Sneakers have transitioned from a workout staple to a chic street style trend and my feet for one are loving it!  I'm wearing these sleek Nike sneakers to walk around Arizona's Christmas city, shopping and sightseeing in comfort.  I added a soft, warm top from We Are Dope (VVAD3) and stretch skinny jeans along with a wool peacoat.  Throw on a warm beanie and pick out a fave backpack and you can face anything the day brings.  Hey, I want to add a special thank you for a Christmas gift from the amazing jewelry company Coco & Marie.  I adore the gold necklaces, one of the state of Arizona and one with my initial.  Talk about lovely gifts.  If you'd like to order some beautiful, delicate jewelry for  someone special this Christmas, please think about using the discount code below and save 20%.

People's Choice #FashionFOMO Episode





Happy Tuesday my fashionable peeps.  My #FashionFOMO episode is officially here!  Back in October, I collaborated with VIMBY (Video In My Backyard) and People's Choice to film an episode on how Vanessa Hudgens's style inspires me for the People's Choice web series.  The prep for the filming included emailing back and forth, brainstorming how to show Vanessa's diverse range of bohemian style, and phone calls going over locations and script.  It was my first experience with a whole film crew, detailed script, and booked locations.  It was a total blast!  The crew included Noel Jean, field producer, Dave Stone, filmmaker, Carlos Soto, production assistant, and Danielle Valiente, hair/makeup.  Everyone was so wonderful to work with and made me feel comfortable which is very important when filming.  The vibe on the set is major in my opinion.  Noel was a wonderful, friendly director and Dave and Carlos were very kind and funny!  And for Danielle, I want her to do my makeup and hair everyday.  Seriously.  I need her.  For the interview portion, the crew along with lights and camera equipment all had to squeeze into my closet; luckily it's a walk in.  haha  For the outfit footage, we shot at popular spots around my hometown, including the "Art for All" mural downtown, Courthouse Square, and Watson Lake.  Below are some behind the scenes photos.  Enjoy!   Xoxo, Shelly

My Style: Monochromatique


In Arizona, the holiday season is in full swing, and I’m so enjoying being on winter break from university.  I have time to shop, decorate the Christmas tree, help address greeting cards, attend parties, laugh with great friends, and enjoy all the other seasonal activities.  As my longtime readers know, I love trying different styles and experimenting with fashion to see what I like and what I don't.    I'm pretty outgoing when it comes to clothes.  Lately, I have been having fun with the grunge style, but for this look I felt like going more city chic/street style.  Nothing beats a heather gray sweater hoody, coated denim skinny jeans with zipper detailing, a soft cotton white tee, and sleek leather booties.  To be city chic and yet totally comfortable is the goal of great street style.  Throw on a wide-brimmed fedora and a studded fringe purse and you are set for a fab, cozy day.  Now, I'm off to do more Christmas gift shopping. . . . Xoxo, Shelly

My Style: Holiday Spirit


School is out and winter break is officially here.  You know what that means...so many blog posts, so little time!  For this look I wore a fab shift dress featuring edgy cutouts with a cool leatherette jacket complete with a mock sweatshirt attached - great for achieving the layered look while avoiding bulkiness.  Since winter is in full swing here in northern Arizona, finding the perfect winter accessories is a must; these patterned tights from silkes.com are perfect along with the cozy beanie and heeled booties.  I also had so much fun wearing the fashion glasses; see my review below.  If you aren't done with your holiday shopping or you need the cutest outfit for a festive party, check out fevrie and use the 25% discount code below.  I love getting discounts for my readers--Merry early Christmas and Happy Holidays!  Xoxo, Shelly

Firmoo Eyeglass Review: Although I do not need prescription glasses, I always jump at the opportunity to try a new accessory.  I enjoyed looking through all the options on firmoo.com.  The website is very user friendly, meaning easy to navigate, quality product photos, and honest blogger & customer reviews.  In addition to the online experience, the shipping is fast and the packaging is nice.  My pair of glasses came with a sturdy case, handy little screwdriver, and lens cloth.  The frames themselves are of great quality for an affordable price.  From my experience, I definitely recommend firmoo.com!  :)
