giveaway: style sessions

Hello! My name is Shell B Cheri & I'm so excited to be guesting on Here&Now blog today! I'm a personal stylist who loves to work with what's already in YOUR closet. Ever since making the transition from hobby to actual business, I've had a fun time convincing people that it can be refreshing to invite a new perspective into the closet, even an insanely stylish woman like Jess herself. I've had the pleasure of working with Jessica before, and those 5 looks are outfits I created from the style session I had with her last year.

I've just moved to Nashville to pursue styling full-time but before I left my previous city of DC, I created and styled a very fun project called #styledbyshellbcheri. The concept: I invited all of my favorite DC style bloggers to pick one trouble item from their closet. I styled the entire outfit around the trouble item using their existing wardrobe. 

The best part was gathering all 14 (FOURTEEN!) for a group photo shoot. Since then I've been blogging about each individual style session, but I thought it would be fun to share a few of the looks with you today that haven't made their way to my blog just yet! All photos credited to über-talented photographer Ashley In DC.

Kristin @ Be Loud Be You picked this plaid yellow coat as her trouble item. I'm a sucker for mixing prints so I paired it with this blue vintage Lanvin dress she scored at a thrift store for $5. (Can we all agree that is perhaps the best thrifted find in the history of thrifting?)

Natalie @ The Fashionably Broke picked overalls. I dressed them up with her green blouse & white wedges. She even wore them to an event after the photo shoot!

Elle @ Elle Choi selected this rose-gold sequined BCBG miniskirt. She bought it to wear for a night of dancing on her birthday but 2 years later it was still sitting in her closet with the tags attached. It's a beautiful skirt but I wanted her to actually be able to wear it during the daytime. Chambray, motorcycle boots & a beanie took the outfit from glam to casual.

Rachel @ My Fair Vanity chose a gorgeous creme colored blazer a friend gifted to her. I loved the idea of taking something so structured and mixing it with something more distressed. When I asked her to put the jeans on, I had no idea that I'd picked her father's Levis from the 70s.

A group shot of all the bloggers who participated! To read more about #styledbyshellbcheri this is a good place to start! And for all you fellow Instagram addicts, theres's quite a bit of content under the hashtag. 
Now that I've shown you a little of my work Jess & I are super excited to give away 2 style sessions! One is open only to Nashville/Middle TN area residents for an in-person 90 minute session with me in your closet. The second style session is open to all and we'll be doing it digitally via Skype & email. When I'm done working with you, I promise you'll see your clothing with new eyes! Thanks for reading about my styling adventures! xoxo.

  4. Still thinking about how cool that outfit was, I have yet to wear those sneakers more. I think I have a few ideas after checking out pinterest a little more.
