Emily Powell | Owner & Creative Director
Emily-with her tenacious and lighthearted attitude-makes up one half of StyleEsque. She has a love for antiques, gold and bohemian-girly style. She is a crafty individual, who thrives in social situations and has been known to whip up a tablescape and made from scratch tapas in record time which has coined her the nickname among her peers of Martha (Martha Stewart). Emily complements Samantha’s attention to detail and sassy quips with her bigger picture point of view and quick-witted sarcastic remarks. When she’s not working Emily loves spending time with her fiancé Breighen, family and friends, making DIY projects, scouring antique shops and flea markets for the best finds, mimosas & brunch, hitting the dance floor, sand volleyball, and binge-watching every show possible on Netflix. Emily believes personal finishing touches make the biggest impact and shouldn’t be overlooked and that every aspect of your life should reflect your own personal style.
Samantha McClelland | Owner & Creative Director
Samantha, the other half of StyleEsque, is a Midwest girl at heart and a lover of all things feminine and girly (think punchy Kate Spade). She’s got a serious passion for planning and a keen eye for the details. Samantha is a compulsive list-maker, has an aversion to spacial inconsistencies, and never met a craft project she couldn’t tackle. She can always rely on Emily for a perfectly timed quick-witted remark. Never without a venti black iced tea in one hand and her iPhone in the other, Samantha is our resident go-to for the latest fashion/celeb gossip. When there are any moments to spare, she loves spending time with her husband, Cody, and their adopted pup, Lola, enjoying a Bloody Mary (or two) with her girlfriends, impromptu dance parties, or catching up on the latest mystery novel. She also is the face of the fashion blog, The Brunette One. Samantha believes that your next event should be filled with personality and at the end of the day it’s about celebrating, laughing and dancing the night away with those you love!
