This Week's Fashionista - Stephanie Mills

Fashionista: Stephanie Mills
Residence: Northern New Jersey
Occupation: Sales/Marketing

New Jack City Fridays @ Strata; June 10, 2005
Promoters: GFC and Patty Laurent
Strata was hot, hot, hot! Packed with beautiful and trendy people, this was the place to be Friday night. The mood was right, the people were hot, and DJ Scratch had the whole place on fire! He mixed old school, hip pop and R&B along with some of the hottest dance songs of the summer. From the moment I entered the club, I was on the dance floor doing my thing. However, it wasn’t long before I spotted Stephanie in the crowd. Strata wasn’t the only thing on fire on this particular night, Stephanie Mills was creating a fire of her own.

I quickly noticed Stephanie’s style and how she used key, must have pieces for the summer and made them her own. I made my way off the dance floor and over to Ms. Mills to find out how she managed to look so stunning and make it look so easy. I loved Stephanie’s outfit and the fact that she didn’t mind playing with different textures and colors to create her own personal style. Tonight she is wearing a green camisole over a white tank top by Arden B, which she paired with flat front boot cut jeans from Seven and a hot pair of Steve Madden pumps. Her look is clean, polished and she can party all night long.

Stephanie described her style as a sophisticated trendy style. She enjoys mixing business and trendy pieces to create a breath taking look. A true fashionista such as Stephanie understands that setting your own trends is more important than following them. Therefore, she isn’t inspired by any one particular person or thing, instead her inspiration is drawn from the energy of the city, black culture and her own personal feelings. Stephanie expressed that dressing based on her mood is a key factor to creating a unique look and allows her to feel confident and comfortable.

Stephanie finds her business and trendy pieces at high end stores such as Bergdorf, Zara and Saks, and also enjoys shopping at Benetton and Arden B. Some of her favorite brands include DKNY, Marc Jacobs, Citizen of Humanity and Joe’s Jeans.

Thinking out of the box is key when it comes to inventing your own style. Most people are afraid to mix textures since they don’t understand that it is OK to pair unconventional items. Stephanie understands this and looks great. So, if you want to meet people like Stephanie or just get your groove on, head downtown to Strata.

AllTheParties will be highlighting another fashion forward fashionista soon at another undisclosed venue. Therefore, to all my fashionistas out there, keep looking fabulous because you never know when I may be approaching you!

Ciao Bella,
