Break out of your Style


My style reflects my persona, and my persona is quite diverse. I am mommy in one moment, business woman in another, or portray a facet of fictional characters to connect to my pop culture fans.
What I wear varies almost on a day to day basis pending my mood.
Lately things have been intense and I’ve been feeling solemn. I sought to find the appropriate outfit to reference my state and recalled the Harajuku brand, Sheglit, featured in popular Japanese magazine Gothic & Lolita Bible.




Sheglit’s attention to acute detail and high quality fabrics are impeccable.



Sheglit is a fairly new label, created by Japanese Designer Imai of former gothic brand, Black Peace Now. Sheglit introduces gothic elements into high fashion to develop a new style combining chic and artistic and can be dressed for formal or casual.
I am honored to be the first to showcase the brand outside of Japan. Moody Mansions in Galveston, Texas provided a beautiful backdrop for us.
The colors of Sheglit are sophisticated and I felt classically elegant. It took me from that solemn place I was in and transferred my state to one of fantasy and daydreaming. It was what I needed to be inspired again to create, manage, and execute my ongoing projects. I love that fashion can do that for me. By trying something new, I can alter my state of mind and exemplify my diverse persona.
Many of us tend to play it safe with fashion. We are faithful to a monotonous style, whether it’s sticking to the same colors, patterns, or types of clothing and accessories in our wardrobe. We get comfortable and fear trying a new look or style. In the past several years, I have embraced all types of fashion styles and learnt to rid of the self doubt in trying something new. I invite you to not be safe in fashion. Instead, be courageous with it. Would you attempt to break out of your style?

    Oh my goodness! That outfit is so heavenly that my breath is taken away! I love the design and silhouette of the coordinate and reminds me of an angel; very elegant and light. From this outfit alone, I think I may have found a new brand to venture out in and I can’t wait to see more from them! Very beautiful and lovely pictures :]

    I knew Galveston had many historical places but I never imagine such a jaw dropping place as Moody Mansion!! Will definitely visit there when I go back to Galveston! Thank you for sharing!

      Thank you, Cindy! The ensemble is as gorgeous in person as it is on film! The Moody Mansion is extraordinary, with rich colors and made for amazing backdrops. I will have to go back for another shoot in the future 🙂

    I would love to see more of this elegant style! To me it seems more mature but still whimsical. The white outfit pictured is very beautiful – it gives off a soft and serene elegance. The shoes seem to be a great match for this outfit, continuing the light and flowing feel. And the location seems a perfect background for this look! I would love to visit Moody Gardens!

    Dress is gorgeous! I think it could even be a unique wedding dress. You don’t see many if any that length, that are off the shoulder yet still with nice straps. Yes definitely have them for the fashion show!

    Such an elegant maturity! Would love to see more of their designs in the fashion show!
    Especially since it’s part of the goth category, I will be excited to buy from their line. The elegance and maturity that this dress brings the angelic side of the fashion.

    For me is incredibly refreshing to see a new label emerging. Sheglit is a must in next years Fashion Show, I can totally picture top models walking the runway with these romantic and elegant designs, so haute couture!
    Deneice, you look beautiful. And you are right, seeing you push boundaries on your style makes me want to leave my confort zone. Maybe I should try Sheglit too.
