For this week’s Real Life Style Inspiration, I chose to discuss the incredible style of my lovely friend Shelby Sells. She is a fun loving girl from Boise, Idaho (nah u da hoe ^_^) who now lives in Los Angeles where we met (she also happens to be BFF with previous Real Life Style Inspiration CHE BO)! Shelby is currently working as a Fashion PR & Social Media expert / Blogger and I must say, she is one of the coolest girls I’ve had the pleasure of meeting! She defines her personal style as that of a Party Monster mixed with a bit of influence from the 5th Element + Spice Girls + a little ghetto fab (she’s gotta keep her acrylics looking right yadadameen?). Needless to say, she dresses crazy (ask any of her friends LOL). Her favorite clothing stores to shop at are Topshop, Etsy, Solestruck and she is also a slave to Goodwill. Shelby’s favorite fashion designer is Jeremy Scott. She is truly inspired by anything crazy and out of the box, which I can definitely relate to! Check out the awesome photo gallery of some of my favorite pictures of her below!
Jessi Jae Joplin is known best as the lead singer of the pop/rock band The Ruckus. With her wild and crazy personality, amazing stage presence (and style to match), Jessi has blown away audiences across Southern California - performing at legendary venues like The Viper Room and The Mint. She also directs and produces her own music videos (featuring talented stars such as VMA nominee KREAYSHAWN, Hanna Beth, Bebe Zeva, Skip Arnold and Whitney Moore). Aside from her band, Jessi is an active fashion journalist and creator of the vintage clothing store "The Fabulous Stains." She currently serves as a featured editor for BUZZNET and contributes to the Lazy Bones Vintage blog (by Audrey Kitching). Jessi even has previous experience working alongside the fashion designers of Heatherette, in the Fashion Editorial Department of JANE Magazine and for the style editors of E! Online. Jessi strongly believes that music & fashion go hand in hand, is highly influenced by bands like No Doubt and Blondie, and is ready to take the industry by storm.
