“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

-Maya Angelou

Hey y’all. I’m so happy you’re here. I’m Charisse, 9 to 5 fiver, hustler, grinder, blogger, over-thinker, shopper and stylist. I’m a true Southerner, born in the Peachiest state and raised under my sweet Savannah sun.

I’m the girl that geeked out on anime, sci-i, and comics that fell in love with the Style channel, Harper’s and Glamour as a teen. Unsurprisingly, i’m still that quirky girl navigating in an adult world that finds sheer joy in Batman and peace scrolling through the digital pages for Carolina Herrera, Diane Von Furstenberg and Monique Lhuillier.

Maybe it was playing dress up with my mom or maybe it was God’s will, either way…I love fashion. More than that I love empowering women. Luckily for me, my passion is merging to two; making women feel and look beautiful through effortless and easy style and simplifying the process of looking beautiful and being yourself. CharisseStyles was created to make life easier for the everyday woman- to shop for, style and encourage.

Become influenced by my style or let’s work together to create your own, either way i’m glad you’re here.

Lots of Love,


I worked with Charisse Shontai for several years and she quickly gained the reputation of best dressed and most stylish among our office of women. I have consistently been impressed with her ability to shop(and thrift shop at that) and am so excited to see her pursuing her passion. If you’re struggling with your style or just hate shopping (like I do), Charisse Styles is your solution!


Best shopping experience of my *life*. I always hated shopping and avoided it as much as possible. Charisse assessed my style, previewed the stores, and in just under two hours, I had the best wardrobe my closet has ever seen. I feel beautiful. I feel phenomenal. Without Charisse with me every step of the way, I would have never accomplished what happened today. This is a MUST HAVE service for busy women.
