Red Fringe Vibes

Guess who's been crazy busy? We have!  My friend was in-town. Grandfather sick in the hospital, blog stuff, my 2K giveaway ( which I announced yesterday). Just busy me. So I'm dropping today's post with only a letter attached to it. A letter I wrote to myself. I sometimes do that when I need to get things out. Unfiltered. Hope you enjoy and can relate:

Hi. I'm Chantele.

My friends call me Telly. I have passions for things so deeply they consume all thought.  Things like friendships, love, I felt the burst to write. Write what I'm feeling. I'm feeling more nostalgic than ever these days. Thinking about friendships that once so strong. Now that have died a slow and agonizing death. Which at present, still on life support. But I don't have the courage or will to pull the plug. Only to pretend it's not there. Dying. I have a roller-coaster attached to my heart now. Highs and lows. Like waves building strong and then descending until the beachy sand. Where just for that moment I feel at peace. I feel one with self. I think the biggest battle these days is trying to figure myself out. My wants and needs out of life. So I can make this light skin girl happy. Content, more importantly. That is a weapon I often leave unattended. Why is it I can look straight upon the beautiful garden in front of me and still notice a rose is missing? Why is it that I can possess the very things in life I want and desire, have the very best friends but still ache for the ones I lost? You have to know I romanticize things. People, the past, etc. Which oddly it wasn't all that great. So now I'm looking at a beautiful garden called life at present and thinking about a rose that was never a rose in the first place. Sure I lost some people these past few years. Some to death. Some to life. To be honest it all freaks me out. I'm growing up and watching things grow and die. It's sobering.Most people don't focus on that fact. But I do. Think it has a lot to do with wanting to be prepared. I hate not being prepared. Being caught off guard. So not only do I like to live in reality. I’m also currently residing in the future. Now that isn't even possible! But somehow I Manage.That's what makes me crazy. I’m letting go, holding on all while looking ahead. That just won't cut it for me anymore. I have to be at peace. I have to let things be. AND both accept my realities and my limitations. Really accept them. Or I’ll lose it. And I can't afford anymore damage upstairs. I have to live those cliches : “ Let Live.” “Carpe Diem” “ What will be will be.” I think I’m up for the challenge…

Telly out.


Spring in The Winter

Happy Humpday!

Over the weekend I decided since the weather doesn't think it should be winter. Why should I? Especially since we've been in the 50's and over! Oh my goodness, right?! That's where I got the idea to put a spin on it with fashion. This look consist of all the colorful things I still had hanging around and didn't pack up for the fall months ago. Those amazing pineapple socks I found at Nordstrom Rack for only 5 bucks. I'm a big fan of socks and pumps. Such a cute trend that I want to showcase more on my blog. So keep your eye out for it. 

A lot of the other items I thrifted some time ago. Except these amazing overalls. Those are from Forever 21. Got them back in the summer. Since then I've been finding different ways to warm them up for this so called winter? Haha. I tell you. It's a epidemic. Everywhere I've been seeing people mention how it's much warmer in their city. Mmmm.

None the less, we still must adapt and make winter fashion pretty "cool" Haha.
Hope you enjoyed today blog!
Til next time...

Telly out :D

The Fighter

Hey Babes!

I'm feeling a lot better these days. But to waste no time I must tell you whats been on my mind. I recently ran into one of my High School teachers. Ms. Perrin. Just by looking at her I suddenly remembered everything I went through to graduate. I missed a lot of school growing up for more personal reasons than I'd like to share. But nonetheless, our conversation served to be a reminder. A reminder of how much I've fought to be at the very spot I'm at. Sometimes in life you can forget how much of a fighter you really are. Additionally, with the new rocky movie "Creed", me and my husband took it upon ourselves... well he did haha!! Took it upon himself to help me catch up on all the Rocky movies. You know what I noticed? For every Champion there was always a fighter more hungry for the win. I noticed after some time winning, the Champion gets content and he loses that hunger. I'm telling you. STAY HUNGRY.
Never stop fighting for the place you want to be. For the life you want to live. 
That hunger for success.

Now because this is a fashion blog.. we must not forget to dress for Success! This look is perfect for this time of year. Tulle, Sequin, Glitter! But I wanted to give an edge to this look. Dark lips. Faux Leather top. Definitely a great look for a night out on the town. Sipping champagne with the girls!

The Jacket


Guys did we survive our first week back after that beautiful extended weekend?
I didn't. That's why today's post will be short and sweet. After failing miserably at getting back in the swing of things. I've yearned for this day. Friday. Today's look is simple. Mainly because I wanted to put focus on this lovely jacket.This jacket is from Fashion to Figure. A brand you see me wear often. It had 2 color choices.The blue being sold out. But this "Medium Red" is still available! Head over there and get yourself one. A vivid hue and chic buckle details on the Eden plus size coat upgrade your outerwear collection with a modern edge. Collarless neckline, zip front closure, long sleeves with double buckle cuffs."  It's so comfortable and warm. Super chic. You will see it again on the blog.
