WHAT I WORE: Fig & Olive Grand Opening Party

WHAT I WORE: Dress by BEBE (old)/ Oversized clutch by ASOS/ Metallic Sandals by Miss Guided (sold out)/

Last night I attended the Fig & Olive private grand opening party in City Center. I'm a huge fan of this new restaurant coming to my area, when I was in LA a few years ago I went with one of my girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Seems like DC is getting all the cool restaurants these days and I couldn't be happier to be in the mix. I decided to bring out this dress I found in my closet a few weeks ago (I'm always finding hidden jewels in my closet lol..) and I knew it would be perfect for the occasion. Kept it pretty minimal with the accessories except for my oversized clutch, the pop of color worked well with my metallic sandals and dress. Like? 

My lovely date for the night! Love this girl xo

Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful food, beautiful people and most importantly champs were flowing! So great to see a lot of my friends all at once, it rarely happens so I definitely appreciate nights like this. If you live in the area, you must try Fig & Olive amongst all the great restaurants located in City won't be disappointed!

Happy Summer 2015!

Over the weekend Summer officially begun and I couldn't be more excited for longer days filled with sunshine and of course laying out by the pool and the cook-outs galore lol. I'm obsessed with the water and that means making the beach/pool my safe havens by any means necessary. I've already been to the beach once last month and I anticipate going a more in addition to my weekly pool dates. Since we had such a brutal winter, I'm so glad that Summer is officially here and that I'll be able to enjoy it.
In between client consults/closet check-ups and my 9-5 job amongst a very busy social season, I've made the decision to finally move into the city! I'm a Maryland girl at heart but my love for the city has surpassed my own comprehension (lol) but it's exciting that I'll finally be a little closer to action and have a place to call my own. So on top of everything else I'm busy obsessing over home décor....who knew I'd be so into decorating? Anyway, I have a few things in the works in regards to styling so I'll keep you guys posted once I can spill the deets on that! I've also successfully completed my 21-Day No Drinking detox...feels so good to say that I did that! Yesterday, I had my first glass of champagne (pool side of course) in 21 days to celebrate the start of Summer...cheers to an amazing summer filled with good times and memories that will last a lifetime!

HAUTE FRIDAY: Washington Nationals Game!

WHAT I WORE: National's T-Shirt from Target/ Boy jean shorts (old but similar version here) by A&FConverse sneakers/ Philip Lim for Target cross-body bag/   
Happy Friday guys! I had a pretty busy week but I managed to squeeze in a Washington Nationals game with my cousin. I'm not the biggest baseball fan but I do appreciate the sport because my nephews play. With humidity in the DMV being out of control I tried a new hairstyle this go around. The Grecian wrap around braid was super easy and conducive to the heat/rain that has been happening. I had so much fun at the game and more importantly ate pretty good. Since I'm still detoxing from alcohol (Day 19 of 21 days...almost done!) I stuck with water for the evening, which kept me hydrated and energized. Check out a few pictures I snapped before the rain started:   

My cousin, Wenisha & I

First things first I had to go to the Jerk stand. I got the signature jerk chicken and potato salad which was DELICIOUS! I'm obsessed, definitely going to try the jerk ribs next time.

Can't go to a ball game and not get a classic Nat's dog. We definitely ate good in between girl talk and periodically paying attention to the game lol!  

What a great afternoon/evening this was...definitely looking forward to going back this summer. I'm looking forward to celebrating a few birthdays this weekend and Father's day on Sunday. I hope everyone has a great safe & keep Charleston, SC in your thoughts and prayers.

VIDEO OF THE DAY: Vanity -Episode 1 "LEGACY"

Happy Tuesday beautiful people! I hope everyone had a great weekend, I sure did and I look forward to a very productive week. Last week, StyleHaul premiered their new web series called Vanity starring Denise Richards and Karrueche Tran. Maybelline and StyleHaul put together a scripted 11 minute web series that is set to air every Thursday. I got the chance to finally watch episode 1 and I loved it. I think the idea of a 11 minute web series is genius, it's straight to the point and convenient for anyone with a busy schedule.    
So what is VANITY all about? The show centers around uncovering the truth about what happened to famed fashion designer Marion Bellerose played by Denise Richards. College student, Lily MacKenzie interviews Marion’s business partner and prominent style icon, Vanessa Ivy played by Karrueche. The episode was timed perfectly and I'm eager to see episode 2 this Thursday (2pm PST), What's not to love about a show centered around a heavy dose of fashion and drama? I'm really interested to see how this web-series plays out. Check out  Episode 1 below, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Kudos to Karrueche! I see you girl!

STYLED BY SCHUNTEL ALEXIS: Urban Sweetheart Spring/Summer 2015 Collection

On set for the Urban Sweetheart photo-shoot with Owner & Model, Sirdonea Davis. Photographed by Laura Metzler

Happy Friday beautiful people! Last week I told you about all the amazing opportunities that have been coming my way so I wanted to share the final images from the Urban Sweetheart photo-shoot that I styled almost 2 weeks ago. The photo-shoot was a creative collaboration of Sirdonea and I, we decided that Georgetown would be the perfect place to capture all of the outfits we put together. Check out a few images from the photo-shoot below:

SHOP THIS LOOK: Lillie Dress/ Jessica Purse (sold out) but find similar here/ Courtney Hat (Mocha)
Absolutely love this dress! It worked perfectly with the scenery...couldn't have asked for a better day!

SHOP THIS LOOK: In Bloom Top/ In Bloom Skirt/ Brooke Hat/ Autumn Heel/

How great is this two-piece outfit? The material is light and it definitely moves well in front of the camera. The hat was the perfect touch to this look!

SHOP THIS LOOK: Pink Fingernails Crop/ Paris Clear Clutch/ Nude heels brought by model/
 If you know me, then you know how much I loveeeee crop tops! How fun is this look? You can pair this outfit with high-heel sandals or a fashionable flat sandal (first picture).

SHOP THIS LOOK: Candy Stripe Dress/ Brooke Hat/ Spring tote bag by US (not yet available)/

I really adored this shift dress, it's fun and flirty as well as super comfortable.

SHOP THIS LOOK: Ella Jacket/ Ella Shorts/
Absolutely love this jogger set, the zipper detail leaves room for this to be worn together or separately. Definitely a great addition to your closet if you need a short set :) 

SHOP THIS LOOK: Brooke Hat/ Billie Jean Top/ Paradise Skirt/ Sadie Shades/ Converse sneakers/

 This last look was the perfect way to end the shoot, it was Summer cool and a great look for a day out in the city. Overall, it was a great shoot and I'm glad that our vision came to light, team work is EVERYTHING! I've added these pictures to my portfolio HERE! Stay tuned as I'll be dropping a very special announcement! In the mean time between time stay cool (it's a heat wave) and most importantly fabulous! Cheers to the weekend!

Whoaaa it's been a lot happening lately, all good things but ALOT of things! Over Memorial Day weekend I went to Atlanta for my best friend's birthday (which was sooo much fun) then I had a pretty busy week in the social part of my life then I took an impromptu trip to Virginia Beach followed by styling a photo-shoot for Urban Sweetheart and all while doing a few style consults and so much more in between. Needless to say, I've been a little preoccupied but I know where my heart lies so I'm back to blogging :) Here are a few pics I snapped and wanted to share with you all!
Happy June Everyone!

How awesome is this crab? Since I got to Atlanta a little early I spent some much needed me time and went to the Aquarium, CNN building and tour of Olympic Park before the birthday festivities kicked off. Who knew spending time alone could be so much fun!  

If you know anything about know I love water!!! The dolphin show had me feeling 9 years old all over again, I was so obsessed with all the different creatures of the sea. If you are ever in Atlanta definitely check out their aquarium its pretty awesome! I'm feeling a littile wavy this summer can you tell? Lol S/O to my stylist Sky! #haironfleek

...waiting on BAE likeeee!
My first drink of the evening was this super delicious Blackberry Bubble cocktail at the Four Seasons Hotel. I got the chance to link up with my childhood friend before meeting up the birthday girl!

The first night out is ALWAYS the best night out when you're out of town (in my opinion) as soon as my bestie touched down we made our way to Suite Lounge for food, drinks and hookah (ya'll know I have an obsession with hookah *covers eyes*). What a fun night!!!

The weather was absolutely perfect! Not too hot or too cold so hanging outside was on the menu. I'm a little obsessed with flash tats if you haven't noticed already lol...I'll be rocking them all summer so don't be surprised if you see more of them, they are so cute and fun! I don't want anymore tattoos so temporary ones just make life more fun and gives a special touch to my outfits! Get yours HERE!
Sunday was the right day to pull out my good ol' maxi dress that I haven't worn in years! I've been on this saving kick lately so I've been remixing my wardrobe instead of buying new clothes. I got this dress about 3 years ago and I always get so many compliments on it, I'm having a brain freeze on where I got it but I'm sure you can find something similar at H&M, Zara or! My neon hobo bag is still clutch to Spring/Summer, I got it at Zara a few years ago and still it delivers. Try adding a pop of color to your look this Summer....does wonders for your mood!!

Before making our way to the Atlanta Jazz Festival we had to BRUNCH SO know the rest. Flying Biscuit was on my bucket list for a long time and I'm so glad I got the chance to try it out.  

I got the fried green tomatoes with jalepeno and goat cheese followed by Oven fried chicken with mac-n-cheese, spicy collared greens and their signature flying biscuit. One word: AMAZING!! 
Summer is officially...well almost officially here! My hair is lighter, skin is a little darker and did I mention I'm wearing lashes now?! These are the minx lashes I wore at my anniversary party, where have they been all my life? I'm soooo obsessed I never leave the house without them LOL! 

Anyway, I had so much fun at Piedmont Park with the crew for the Atlanta Jazz festival. Between the wine, fried fish, music, and company I had an amazing last day in the A!

Bihhh where my shots at?! LOL!

WHAT I WORE: Lace blue dress by H&M/ Diamond necklace by ALDO/Black 'So Kate' Christian Louboutin heels/Bag by ZARA (old)/
As soon as I got back to the DMV, it was only right that we dined at my favorite restaurant MASTRO'S for Ashlee's birthday. I discovered Mastro's a few years ago for my friend's birthday in LA so I'm happy that is closer to me! This was by far one of the best meals I've had in a very long time, it's worth every pretty coin you will ever spend when it comes to fine dining.   

Sautéed shrimp was on 10000!!!

(Left to Right): Mac-N-Cheese, Petite filet, Sautéed spinach & Creamed corn!!
A freakin' party in your mouth!

Then, there was the signature butter cake & homemade whipped cream that had me melting!!!
Friday Night Turn up at VA beach....#whoknew

Found my way to the beach on Saturday...and of course the Hookah! LOL!

I got this book for my 29th birthday and I'm almost done reading it. Great read!

Yes, I'm obsessed with PHHOTO app! Beyoncé taught me lol...

Great day at the beach...just what I needed!
From the beach to styling my friend's shoot in Georgetown Sunday morning. I was soooo tired but as soon as I got to the shoot I got the energy to walk the hills/streets of Georgetown DC. I can't wait to see the pics from the photo-shoot, we had so much fun! Initially we created about 7-10 looks from her Spring/Summer collection for the shoot but only ended up using around 7 of our favorites, I'm so proud of my friend!! Check out here website here: :)


After taking a much needed nap post VA beach and the photo-shoot, I ended up meeting up with my girls for crabs to conclude a pretty good weekend. I'm not really the crab feasting girl but when I'm in the mood I goooo in lol. I guess that's the Maryland girl side of me!
So what's up next for Schuntel Alexis? Well I'm in planning mode for events and such and definitely looking into switching up my residency sooner than later!! I've been cleaning out my closet/re-organizing everything so you purchase my clothes, shoes, etc on PoshMark, I'm still adding to my virtual closet but so far I've been selling my dresses. There are a lot of fashion events, milestone celebrations for my family/friends on the menu and travelling this summer, so do your best to keep up with me! Lol! My friends like to joke and say I'm all over the place ('s kind of true lol) so who knows where this summer will take me, I'm READY :)
