Real Life Style Icon: Shen of Shen Dove Style

This is one of many interviews in our Real Life Style Icon series – in which we talk to smart, funny, painfully well-dressed women we’d like to befriend. Say hello to Shen of Shen Dove Style! 


Name: Shenneth also known as Shen Dove
Age: 20 something
Location: Washington, DC
Online haunts: my blog // twitter // facebook


Three reasons that you’re awesome:
I’m a creative dreamer that loves setting goals, I’m a life-long learner, I usually have a positive outlook on things.

What are you wearing right now, as you type this?
I’m wearing a black shirt, leopard skirt, flat boots and a green sweater; typical office wear.


What is the last item of clothing you bought?
A black button down with two pockets from Old Navy.

What is the item of clothing you most covet at the moment? I
am currently coveting cozy sweaters for winter. I’m also a self-proclaimed skirt collector, so I’m always on the hunt for unique ones.

Tell us about a favorite childhood memory about your clothes!

loved dressing up as a child and have numerous memories of dressing up
in my own clothing and wearing my Mother’s awesome accessories.  I even
created characters and had “performances” in my outfits. I was quite
dramatic back then.

What is your best thrifting score?
That’s a hard one, but I’d say the leopard print skirt that I’m currently wearing.

Could you tell us your top three style tricks/DIYs?

1) Dying clothing with fabric dye (like RIT dye) to give it a fresh
2) belting skirts that are too big or long
3) turning clothing
inside out or backwards to give it a different look.

Thanks for sharing, Shen!



ummmm, can I please have your boots in the first pic and the hot looking shoes in the second pic? And while your at it, how about the long flowy skirt in the third pic? Awesome style.
