Eccentric FIND : Ruffle Coat


Model Stafani Milano

A lot of us are intriguly in love with this nude ruffle coat style it screams Im HERE and I OWN the scene.

I love the length of the coat worn with the length of the boots or heels. Not too long that it drags the ground either well depending on your height. The soft fabric seemingly are important components to my eye. You want the coat thats not bulky, and moves in motion. A straight sheath does not create quite the same elegant, graceful and sensual effect. This ruffle coat can easily be dressed up or down.

Its the conversation maker for sure! I located 2 boutiques Swankaposh and Snazzy Clozet thats selling it….Now. Only difference is 20 bucks…so no big difference.

The GLOW Up 3 : Sundays BEST

________________________________________

When choosing your Sunday church outfit the most important thing is to consider comfort. The point of church clothing is to feel free (not too free) and comfortable. You also have to consider the fact that youll be in the house of the Lord. So that Saturday night bodycon that you have to keep pulling down paired with a kimono is a no go. I am not saying you have to wear flip flops, shorts and ripped tees (even though they say come as you are), but you have to feel confident and think only about God, so nothing disturbs your feelings and thoughts.

________________________________________

Depending on who you ask strips and prints are hard to style up because their to busy. I believe they are the complete opposite…. something as vibrant as such will go so perfect with a simple sandle and clutch. If your like me youll have no problem even wearing the two together at one.

Below are four ways to style strips and prints

Fashion & Style 411 : Chantaille Elkerson

Meet Chantaille Elkerson , the afrocentric peach who hails from Adamsville , Georgia. If your like me , then you never forget to get your daily dose of this Queen on social media. Chantaille is a writer and medical esthetics specialist, who also model and acts. Shes talented and her energy is amazing. EG was honored to have interviewed Chantaille Elkerson….Get your fashion fix below

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.

Who is your favorite DESIGNER?

Chantaille Elkerson : There are so many up and coming designers its hard to pick a favorite. I’m inspired everyday and excited to see where fashion is headed.

Who is your current STYLE crush?

Chantaille Elkerson : I have two style crushes my Mom with her ability to understand complementary colors and pieces and Paola Mathe for the same. These women execute fashion flawlessly

How do you pick the ensembles you display?

Chantaille Elkerson :The best pieces to the least amount of time to put together. And those are the ones I showcase. I believe true fashion is an extension of yourself and should never be forced. From outlandish and extra to boring and basic I wear what I like and pay no mind to what’s in.

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

Chantaille Elkerson : Etsy and Ebay are my favorite places to get unique pieces from around the world. Goodwill other thrift stores and african shops and vendors around town.

Which LOOK is your FAVE?

Cardigans have a way of taking any basic look and making it very fashionable. Retailing for $120 at the Swank A Posh boutique. 

This piece is a excellent way to add texture and that head turning effect to a simple outfit like the nude tights and top worn in Look A or keep it chic with a soft blush-coloured wide leg jumpsuit like Look B did. 

For a casual dopness, maybe that you wear it with jeans and heels the way the model did with a white tee.
