She’s all business by day and blogging by night. This fashion blogger has a style that’s inspired by the city she currently calls home. Chanel says, “Having lived in New Orleans for several years, the city’s attitude has rubbed off on me tremendously. The city is so carefree and easy-going.” Chanel’s effortless chic approach to fashion is why she’s our Friday Fly Philosophy.
Ooh La La Blog: What’s your Fly Philosophy?
“Classically girly with an edgy twist.” I like to mix feminine and edgy pieces together to create a look that’s polished, but effortlessly done.
Ooh La La Blog: What are some of your favorite places to shop and who are your favorite designers?
I like to shop at high and low end stores. I tend to go to high end stores for one of a kind pieces that never go out of style, and don’t mind splurging on. For trendy clothes that may go out of the style the next season, I shop at more affordable stores such as Forever 21, H&M, and Zara.
Some of my favorite designers are Lanvin, Alice + Oliva, Michael Kors, and Alexander Wang.
Ooh La La Blog: What’s your fashion Pet Peeves?
One word- Crocs! Need I say more….lol.
Ooh La La Blog: What are the top three items in your closet you can’t live without. In other words what’s in heavy rotation.
I think you can never go wrong with a tailored blazer, a pair of sky high black pumps, or anything leopard.
Ooh La La Blog: For other girls admiring your style can you give them a few tips on how they too can achieve an effortless look?
I think the most important thing is to dress for your body type. It took me a long time to realize that what someone else can wear may not work for how my body is shaped. Once you figure out what types of clothes works best for your body, the hard part is over.
Chanel those Alexander Wang booties are bangin! I also love the bright colors you incorporate into your wardrobe. We couldn’t agree with you more about those Crocs….lol. To stay connected to Chanel check out her fashion blog, Chanel Craves.
