My Style: Burnt Bridges

Today's Look:  has attitude.  I'm all about people wearing what they want to and experimenting with mixing colors and textures and enjoying being bold.  This fall, I love wearing shorts with sheer tights and over-the-knee socks for warmth.  Add a beanie, plaid shirt, leather crop top, and combat boots and you are so ready for an awesome day.  The crop top from Charlotte Russe is exceptionally cool with sheer sleeves while the shorts from Petit Sesame have a sleek quilted detail.  Highlighting the grey in the plaid, I chose a soft grey bag by one of my favorite collaborators T-Shirt & Jeans, an excellent designer and manufacturer of affordable bags.  Also of special note is the pretty antiqued cuff bracelet also by Petit Sesame.  To win your very own identical bracelet, head over to my Instagram for instructions.  Lastly, I wore the Rock Star iHair reusable hair extensions in Wine Red made by Crisace Professional Hair Enhancement Systems.  P.S.  I had a blast driving around listening to music and exploring for new photo spots with my photographer.  We stumbled upon this grungy bridge and fell in love.  Remember to always keep a lookout for new adventures.  Xoxo, Shelly

My Style: Red Hair, Don't Care

Today's Look:  is about enjoying crazy fun hair color without damaging your hair with chemicals.  I have been wanting to dye my hair for years, but I never quite bit the bullet--so I'm loving these reusable hair extensions by Crisace Professional Hair Enhancement Systems.  Last week, I went with the classic brown Remy human hair that matched my natural hair color perfectly.  Very happy with the results, I loved the look and feel.  This week I tried out the Rock Star iHair extension in Wine Red made from Fibre human hair that is hot tool friendly.  What do you think of the hair color?  In keeping with the rock star vibe, I wore distressed combat boots, shredded black skinny jeans, a cool graphic tee, a boyfriend denim jacket, a black tattoo choker, a beautiful ear cuff, mixed gold & silver bracelet, and numerous rings.  The graphic tee by VVAD3 (WE ARE DOP3) is thick, soft, and unisex--we can all wear the sweet designs and look cool.  The ear cuff by Emma Joy added just a little feminine bling with an edge. #awesome  Xoxo, Shelly

My Style: Wild West

Today's Look:  is a perfect mixture of city grunge and western boho.  One of my favorite new closet additions is this fringe jacket.  The jacket has beautiful brown coloring so I kept the rest of the outfit monochromatic faded black.  I wore the softest v-neck top and high-waisted, shredded denim shorts. Since the weather is chilly, I wore distressed tights underneath my shorts.  Finishing off the look, I added chokers, platform boots, and the best crossbody bag.  Enjoyed a relaxing afternoon at a scenic lake, making the best afternoon, especially after a stressful week.  Xoxo, Shelly

Beauty Tip:  A quick, easy, & affordable way to add volume and thickness to your hair is by wearing Crisace iHair!  The hair extensions don't require weaving or hair appointments--you can easily put them in your own hair and go.  I am so impressed with the natural hair that can be curled, straightened, and shampooed.  Watch the video below to see how easy application of iHair is!

My Style: School Girl

Today's Look: is about channeling my inner "Gossip Girl," styling like I'm ready to attend the Constance Billard School for Girls in New York City's Upper East Side with Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen.  The only difference is what I like to call "prepster grunge"--styling with a little edge.  Having fun with your fall fashion is what it's all about.  I love this ivory open-knit sleeveless sweater worn with a plaid mini skirt and over-sized black blazer.  Adding a classic choker layered with a pendant necklace and black tights with high platform booties combines the perfect touch of grunge styling.  A little burgundy lip color doesn't hurt either :)  I hope you're loving fall; I'm finishing up intense projects for my college courses.  Wish me luck!  Xoxo, Shelly

Beauty Tip:  Lately, I've loved Kylie Kardashian's lipsticks.  To capture the full lip look like Kylie, I filled in my lips with Lotus Berry lip crayon by Carmindy & Co. and outlined my lips with Cinnamon Swirl lipstick by No. 7.  

Absolutely loving my new laptop skin from!  The best part is I got to design it.  You can design your own skin or phone case too.  With the holidays around the corner, a customized phone case or skin makes a perfect holiday gift.  ♥
