SXSW

SXSW, huh. You know, I’ve never been to a music or film festival, ever? I’ve been wanting to from the time I arrived in the States five years ago. Since Austin is but a mere 2 hours away from Houston, one would expect the trip to have been made years ago. But no not yet. Perhaps 2016. I dug in as deep as I could to find whatever semblances of Kate Moss as well as Nicole Richie vibes within me that existed. Tossed some Stevie Nicks into the mix. And I’m festival ready. Have you been to SWSX? How was it?? Tell tell tell!!!! Love, Sheela p/s photo credits to Eve, all the clothes and jewellery are hers. Shoes and KRZA headwrap? Mine. Linking up with Fashion Friday, Friday’s Fab Favourites and The Fashion Canvas.

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards

I received my invite by hand, but of course. Personally delivered by a line-up of eye candy boys men, all ripped and wearing tees so tight they left little to the imagination. How could I say no? It is, after all, the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards. As we all know, I’ve never been one to blend in with the sea of taffeta and lace and gowns and trinkets. Instead, I plan on taking the Janelle Monáe route. Jacket, Free People. Leggings, lord knows. Inner Chiffon Top, Stylemint. Lacy Bra, La Perla. Eye and cheek make-up from Wet n Wild, Smashbox Double Exposure, LORAC Afterglo and Kat Von D. Black Suede Heels with Ruffles, Bakers. Neckpiece, JCrew. Lipstick, MAC Heroine. Whirligig, all mine. Walking the tightrope of reality has never been more fun. See you at SAG tonight, 8/7c. Love, Sheela p/s As always, photo credits to Eve.

The Rainbow Lodge

A few days ago, I reviewed my 2013 resolutions (yes yes, I skipped a year) and documented my progress. Now, I’d like to talk about a less abstract objective, that being how I want my style to evolve this year. For one, there are a few things I swore I’d never try but (shudder) I shall in 2015. Or die trying. Or endure a penalty not as physically taxing but no less painful. Hence the birth of a new column I shall baptise as What Would Sheela Wear (WWSW). Here’s where I walk the tightrope of reality. Teeter, on occasion, but not fall. Be a little costumey even. It’s where I shrug off all fraudulent pretense of “this old rag? I just threw it together without a thought”, and go on character trips through fashion. Today’s debut What Would Sheela Wear segment highlights what I wore to New Year’s Eve Dinner at the Rainbow Lodge. This is a gorgeous, palatial-esque log cabin, 100 years old, sprawled across an acre of grounds. Imagine a luxurious snow …
