THE STORY

Aye, LOL. There is no way you can start singing those lyrics and not finish the song! You should know now that I love music and movies, so while a reader of this blog you will receive random music quotes and movie lines!

 

Born and raised for a large part of my childhood in Cleveland, Ohio around a house full of brothers and male cousins, it’s a no brainer I picked up a few of their habits. I attribute most of my strong and no bull shii mentality and mannerisms to the fact that I had to hold my own and in my daddy’s words, “man up”! Having been back and forth from Cleveland and Dallas, Texas I have a northern attitude with a southern soul. I’m still a lady!

I love fashion and its ability to convey our disposition undertone in the most nonverbal form of self-expression. I love fashion for the versatility it bears. Every day I wake up I get the chance to express myself and my personality through my style, which I would deem Street-Chic. At times literally and others figuratively.

 

I'm a tomboy with a shoe addiction, who likes playing dress up. My favorite look may be a bomb, sexy body-suit paired with joggers and heels. What I love, is that I can switch that same look up with a hat and a pair of combat boots and portray a completely different side of myself. Yes, I love my go to jogger look for Sunday Funday and hanging out but I also love what I call being corporate chic. Pairing a pencil skirt with a sheer blouse and those perfect fitting pointed toe 3 inch heels that make you feel you can conquer the world! It’s about balance.

 

I also love mixing highs and lows. High end pieces with a good TJ Maxx find or a random $4 skirt I found while thrifting. I don't follow many rules because I go about fashion my way! I go with what feels good.

 

It should also be noted that I sometimes think I'm a philosopher, so to my readers:

Life is meant to be lived; cherish the exciting moments, and relish in those all too brief moments of relaxation. I am here to live my own life, and live it passionately. Marissa Elise serves as a vessel to project my passions, and clue my loyal readers in to what inspires me in this crazy world. So, sit back, relax, and read on!
