When you were little did you ever play “I’m Going To The Grocery Store?” It was a memorization game where you had to remember alphabetically the contents of a shopping list from A to Z. Well this month we’re going shopping for an outing to the beach! Even if it’s just up to Zuma to surf, or Malibu for the weekend, it still pays to look chic.

My name is Marcellas the Great and I am the GREATEST FASHION STYLIST EVER. I am obsessed with fashion, shopping & creating something beautiful. I can’t live without love & style. You’d be surprised to know that I got my 1st job selling women’s clothing at 15 and if I weren’t a Fashion Stylist I’d own my own clothing store. If I had to choose my favorite decade of fashion it’d be right now because the new Gucci collection is AMAZEBALLS! My favorite place on earth is Hawaii and I’d live there forever though the shopping is awful. I like Jil Sander but I love Helmut Lang & TOM FORD. A styling tip I swear by is using WD40 to clean the white soles of your high tops & tennis shoes. I never attend a shoot without my nipple covers. I currently have Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left To Cry” on repeat! Ariana just gets me. ❤️ The last show I binge watched was CLAWS on TNT! #YASSSS #teamNiecyNash! I find most of my inspiration watching cinema from the 1970s. My favorite fashion trend of all time is luxe boho and if it were up to me vintage YSL would never go out of style. Lately I’ve been interested in Murakami and Kerry James Marshal, and would love to own a painting by Francesco Clemente. My best style advice would be never consider the size on the tag. Buy the size that fits best then have it tailored to perfection. I love my Lanvin for H&M bow tie and would only trade my Mr Turk dinner jacket for the Tom Ford tux that it’s a knock off of! I am always open to sale shopping. I find that it nurtures my creative growth. I am more than the two hundred pairs of shoes or hundreds of pocket squares I own and that doesn’t make me a hoarder!
Here’s a Spring ’16 dress campaign I shot for one of my fave clients Bonton! I love that it shows multiple ways to wear several different dresses! I believe everything you buy should be versatile! I constantly get asked “But how do I wear it!?” Well here’s how! A little black dress can go from day to night with a change of accessories. A hotter shoe and a dressier clutch and you are ready for drinks or dinner!
The denim dress can be worn a million different ways! And year round too! Add textured leggings and knee high boots or booties to take it into fall/winter!
Every woman has that special occasion dress they think they’ll never wear again! Trust me you can. It just takes finding the right pieces to mix it with!
Spring and summer are always about florals! Take them from sweet to edgy with hip accessories.
The little black dress goes to Coachella when paired with haute hippie inspired accessories like a floppy hat and a fringe bag! And don’t be afraid to mix black and brown.
