Womenswear Wednesdays: Blogger and designer Felicia Renee on her street style
When we spot people on the street and stop to interview them about their unique looks, it's rare that they are fashion bloggers, too. But this was the case with blogger Felicia Renee, who has been running her own personal style blog, shewillbeinblack.blogspot.com since last November and recently started creating her own accessories.

Spotted at: Broadway and Ellsworth.
Profession: I'm a part-time bank teller, and I also have my own style blog, shewillbeinblack.blogspot.com, that takes up most of my time when I'm not working.
Favorite film: 2 Days in Paris. It's about a struggling couple, and the ending monologue is very relatable to anyone who's ever been in a relationship.
2013 jam: All of oOoOO's music is really good witch-house. Chelsea Wulf has good acoustic music, and I've seen her headline at the hi-dive before.
Style inspirations/icons: Well, the Olsen sisters are good, even the youngest one, Elizabeth. Their whole style, and all the accessories, hair and jewelry -- they are really their own people and do their own style. This blogger named Frou Frouu has a good tumblr and website; I like her style.
Favorite color: Black.
Favorite accessory: Hats and beanies. I love bowler hats. I recently started looming, and I make my own hats and scarfs. My friend Rene and I started a group together called the Loominati.
Style mantra: Just stick out. Wear something different. That's my form of art, because I can't draw or paint, so I take my time picking out my clothes and started to make my own accessories. It's about looking good and feeling good.
Shops at: Nordstrom, usually online. I used to work at Nordstrom Rack and really like the whole Nordstrom culture. I also shop at Top Shop, H&M, Michael's and Hobby Lobby for fabric.
These stacked, mirrored, diamond-shaped earrings are custom-made by Renee and are featured on her blog, where she offers tutorials on DIY fashion projects. The posts cover subjects such as altering clothes with bleach and pictorial fashion spreads.
