Dimples! Her dimples will hypnotize you. Knowing this beautiful lady for over 8 years, how could I not feature this mother to be. Her beauty, being a woman of god and wonderful spirit was captured as the MeYe Label February feature. Let's meet Shantania!!
1. Introduce yourself!
My name is Shantania Leggins and I am a 37 year young native New Orleanian who now lives in Katy, TX. I wear the titles of mother (baby #5 will make it's debut any day now) wife to my high school sweetheart, daughter, sister and friend. By profession I own a financial services firm that specializes in helping families and individuals identify and reach their financial goals. I enjoy coaching and inspiring others to set and reach their goals. In addition to my career, I am the founder of Wealth & Elegance whose mission is to not only to lead women in becoming wealthy in their finances but in their heart, mind and spirit. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family, reading, running, taking pictures and serving others.
2.Describe your style
I have a pretty varied style of dress. I am comfortable in the most simplest of clothing to the most exotic. I love wearing colors but out of routine I tend to dress pretty traditional which is why this MeYe Label shoot was everything!
3.Have you shopped Resale Before and if so do you like it?
As a kid we shopped resale out of necessity. I really didn't have an appreciation for it then. However, now I really enjoy shopping resale especially when I find those one of a kind pieces. My daughters enjoy it as much as I do.
4.What is your definition of Vintage?
My definition of vintage is pieces that are timeless and classy. Items that were worn/popular in an earlier time period.
5.What are your favorite fashion pieces? Favorite places to shop? Least favorite fashion trends?
My favorite pieces are blazers scarves and accessories, accessories and more accessories.. The traditionalist in me can never go wrong with a nice quality suit. I really don't have a one go to store for shopping. I shop anywhere from resale shops/ garage sales to Target, Marshalls, Nordstrom ,etc. I am not really big on labels but more concerned with how a piece looks and makes me feel. My least favorite fashion trends are clothes that expose too much. I think you can be a lady and dress sexy without exposing your intimate body parts.
6.How would you describe MeYe Label?
I would describe MeYe Label as an outlet that encourages women at every stage of life to dress in a way that makes them feel good. MeYe Label inspires and encourages ALL women to look and feel good while not spending a fortune and still being fashionable. It encourages us mothers, wives, daughters - just women in general to be themselves and be comfortable in their own skin with their own style.
7.What is one piece of advice you have for others who want to incorporate more bold fashions into their lives?
Just do it!!! If you wear it and it doesn't make you feel good then just don't wear it again. The truth of the matter is you will probably feel good about yourself just for stepping outside of your comfort zone. The easiest way to get started is to add one something different at a time...a statement necklace, a new pop of color or even a different lip color or hair style.
8.Where can we find more of you (social media links if you want)?
I can be found at @wealthandelegance on Instagram and twitter and you can follow me on facebook by searching Wealth & Elegance.
