So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

Chantaille Elkerson : My mother used to collect fashion magazines. I knew I wanted to be apart of the fashion world when I saw Linda Evangelista step out of a Lamborghini in one of them. I watched her constantly morph and change her look.And I watched Naomi strut her stuff down the runway and sell those clothes like no other. The way these photoshoots and shows were put together effortlessly. I tried to recreate my own versions. I used to steal my moms clothes and wear them to school. The kids didn’t get it though so they picked fun

Do you have a signature STYLE?

Chantaille Elkerson :I have looked back on photos of myself from the past, mortified. Now I always consider whether my wardrobe is timeless or full of future regret and shame. I lean towards timeless pieces now and try to wear more statement pieces.

Fashion & Style 411 : Tricky Vibes

20161201_195218

Meet Alisha Jones-Cotton a life and style blogger of Trickyvibes.com. Alisha’s blog is humorous, empowering, and covered in street art. She was born and raised in the Carolinas so she’s a southern girl at heart. As a military spouse she has enjoyed traveling around the country and finding inspiration everywhere she go. Alisha wants all readers to feel encouraged and confident in their fashionable clothing and throughout their lives.

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION?

TrickyVibes – Unlike most bloggers I fell in love with fashion quite recently- I would say even within the past few years. I have always loved reading fashion magazines and modeling but I didn’t fall in love with FASHION until I learned to appreciate my body and feel more confident about my self-worth.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE?

TrickyVibes – My style is ever-changing! Some days I love classic and timeless looks, and other days I am 90’s grunge. When I wake up every morning I decide how I feel then pick clothes that match! I am sure this sounds silly but its true.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

TrickyVibes – Its a toss-up between Michael Kors and the design team of H & M. I love a designer with a backstory- and we all know that Michael Kors almost went bankrupt and then re-emerged like a phoenix in the fashion world. H & M is always on top of the latest trends and constantly collaborating with high-end brands (and artists) to make pieces more affordable for all. I am so excited about their collaboration with the The Weeknd in the coming year.

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush?

TrickyVibes – My current style crush is Micah Gianelli, She is an Australian blogger who SLAYS every outfit she puts on! I like her because her style is constantly changing just like mine and she cannot be put into a box.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

TrickyVibes – I am always picking my clothes based on the most flattering pieces and mixing in 1 or 2 trending pieces to make my outfit pop. Fit and trend are first on the list to be picked everyday.

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces?

TrickyVibes – I love H&M, also Windsor Store, Azure Boutique, Tj.Maxx, annnd- Target. Target is so affordable but always on trend. I cannot remind folks enough about the goodies I get from Target! Great for basic pieces if you are building a capsule wardrobe.

20160919_19380920160919_193732

Born and raised in Monroe, LA. Attended Grambling State University for undergrad and Howard University for graduate school. In DC I worked for two prominent modeling agencies where I got the opportunity to work behind the scenes on major fashion shows and magazine shoots. I’ve written for online publications and magazines such as Everything Girls Love, Trenched In Style, and the Rouge Collection to name a few. I’ve been featured on fashion websites like Fashion Bomb Daily and Naija Fashion Daily. I am co owner of an online t-shirt boutique – http://www.chokolatcreme.com. This t-shirt company encourages women to wear what they are feeling literally and figuratively. Chokolat Creme is ambition and culture personified through fashion.

I currently reside in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with plans on locating to New Orleans in the near future

Question 1: So when’s the first time you fell in love with FASHION? I fell in love with fashion when I was very young – about 4 or 5 years old. I would watch my mother get dressed for different occasions, and I would be in awe. When she would leave for her events, I would go in her closet and emulate what I just saw her wear. I would put on her dresses, tie her belt around my waist to hold the dresses on me, put her hats on, and her heels. My mother was my first connection to fashion….then I was exposed to the The Cosby Show. I witnessed Lisa Bonet’s (Denise Huxtable) style evolution and how she was free in her choices and different. Watching Lisa each week and seeing my mother take pride in her look turned me on to fashion. It became my drug of choice.

Question 2 : Do you have a signature STYLE? My signature style would be a great pair of distressed jeans, a soft t-shirt or bodysuit, some leather booties, and a worn leather bomber jacket or cardigan – add a big bag/purse, some big gold hoop earrings, a gold watch, some cool aviator shades, and I’m good to go.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER? I love minimalism when it comes to style so I would have to say American Apparel, H&M, Steve Madden, and Jimmy Choo.

Question 4 : Who is your current STYLE crush? Elisa Johnson – Magic Johnson’s daughter. She is the epitome of style. It’s all about attitude/confidence, and she has that down to a tee.

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display? I get style inspiration from anywhere. I could be driving and hear a certain song and an outfit comes to my head. I could be going through my closet and see something that inspires me differently from how it inspired me before, and I rock it. Watching other people’s styles helps me choose my style. Window shopping helps me choose my looks. I sit down and outfit brainstorm sometimes, and I come up with looks. My style inspiration can come from
anywhere.

Question 6 : What are some of your favorite boutiques to get your fashionable pieces? ASOS, Intuition.la for costume jewelry, Urban Outfitters, H&M, Steve Madden, American Apparel, and @shopvintagebowtique on Instagram.

Question 3: Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

If I had the finances to truly buy from any designers I wanted, I would definitely say Chanel. I think the designs embody my style aesthetic.

OMG if I could I would raid Solange Knowles closet and Marjorie Harvey’s closet. They have such great fashion sense and they are not afraid to take risk and live fashionably outside of the box!

Question 5: How do you pick the ensembles you display?

There is no rhyme or reason to what I pick. It really just depends on my mood. I’m a shoe lover so I can say the majority of my choices start with shoes first.
