FASHIONISTA du jour: Shalanda Turner

 FASHIONISTA du jour has been on vacation for a little bit because yours truly has been pretty busy with the ol’ 9 to 5.  Excuses aside, I’ve had the great opportunity to get to know several of you a little better through our conversations over email and I’m looking forward to sharing you with the world by featuring you very very soon.  You’ll be seeing this feature more often now and I’m going to be switching up the look of it so stay tuned.  Well, enough of the business, lets get to why you’re really here, and that’s to meet September’s FASHIONISTA du jour.  I’d like you to meet, Shalanda Turner:

WHAT SHE’S WEARING:  top: Express | skirt: H&M | necklace: New York & Co | shoes: Rampage 

WHAT SHE’S WEARING: skirt: H&M | handbag: New York & Co| top: Express | shoes: Paris Hilton

Clearly this 27 year old bombshell’s got mile long legs and a gorgeous figure, but beyond her outward beauty, Shalanda’s got brains too!  I loved learning that Shasie {as her friends call her} has a Chemical Engineering degree.  She jokingly calls herself a Engineer by day and a Fashionista by night.  She’s artsy and creative and has been offering styling tips to her family and friends for as long as she can remember.  She also blogs and sews!  Sounds like a girl you want to have on your team.  I asked her a few questions:

1. How would you describe your personal style? My personal style modern frugalista. I like classic and trendy pieces, but I’m not willing to spend an arm and a leg for them. I don’t really wear a lot of vintage.

2. What’s something about you that people wouldn’t expect? My favorite tv shows are Xena Warrior Princess and Smallville

3. If you knew then what you know now….(what would that word of advice be?): Be guarded when heading into love, don’t be naive

4. What drives your passion to do what you do? As far as engineering the possibilty of becoming really successful and being recognized in the industry. For fashion blogging: Just the love of fashion, and the excitement of displaying my outfits to people all around the world     

5. If money were no option, what would you be doing this very moment? I’d be living in a beach house somewhere.
