Welcome to the Spekture Girl series, where Spekture Staff and Syrens work to feature the most beautiful and bad ass ladies out there, bestowing them with the designation Spekture Girl. Whether you’re an aspiring model, a working promo girl, or maybe just the girl next door, Spekture wants to hear from you. We will feature a new Spekture Girl regularly, with a complete interview and feature on spekture.com and Spekture social media, and you could very well be the next one.
Or actually, the first one.
To announce the Spekture Girl series, we reached out to Spekture’s honorary Syren, Staci Renee, who is based in Houston, Texas, to do a feature on her and get this party started to show everyone what Spekture Girl features and interviews will look like.
Location: Houston, TX
Social: @staci_renee323 on Instagram
Birthplace: Harbor City, CA
Upon initially experiencing Staci Renee, you may be erroneously inclined to label her as the classic “girl next door” vibe and nothing more. That said, and while she is the quintessential girl next door in many ways, Staci exudes a cultivated, enigmatic personality that shows itself in several unexpected ways from her interest in everything from visual art to computer animation, Halloween and the macabre in general, and even singing. Hailing from the west coast, this California girl has resided in south Texas for most of her life but has retained all of the unique sophistication and charm that one might expect from the Golden State.
Automotive wise, she has a penchant for Elon Musk’s recent wares, but admits to having a minimal background in all things vehicular. We didn’t see that as a problem here at Spekture, and we couldn’t think of a better way to launch the brand new Spekture Girl series than with our honorary Syren.
Full disclosure: Staci is not only an honorary Syren, but she works closely with Spekture Lifestyle Editor, Nino Batista, on his YouTube show, The Backyard, and therefore she is ineligible for any upcoming Spekture Girl contests or awards – sorry, girl!

Spekture: How long have you been modeling?
Staci Renee: Oh, about three years. My first shoot was in January of 2013.
S!: How would you describe working with the photographer?
Staci: He’s one of my favorites to work with! Not only is he a great guy, but once we start shooting, we get that photographer/model “jive” going and the shots just start to flow. It’s always fun and very relaxed.
S!: What are you most proud of?
Staci: I’m truly proud of how far I’ve come in my modeling career and the person it’s helped shape me to be. It’s been a slow process since I have to schedule around (full time) work, but I’ve pushed myself past my usual comfort zones and been able to experience some great adventures, meet amazing people and really found a whole new confidence in myself.
S!: How much do you know about cars?
Staci: Okay, I have to be honest, I can’t say I’m a gear head but I do pride myself on knowing the cars I drive on the daily. I can change the oil in my car, change a tire and I try to make sure to know the general ins and outs of my vehicle. It’s almost sad that knowing those few things can shock people. I’m always up for learning more! I used to help my Dad work on my ’94 Toyota Celica, whether it was replacing parts or just figuring out where things were and how to keep them in working order.
S!: What is your dream car?
Staci: There’s a good long list of classic and luxury cars I would just love to see myself driving around, but, oh, would I love a Tesla Model S p85d. It’s sexy, it’s sleek and being fast doesn’t hurt. Anytime I see one I get what I call a “car-gasm.” Yum.
S!: What’s your favorite thing to eat and why?
Staci: Anyone who knows me can attest to my love of anything CHEESE. Melted, crumbled, fried or whole, I don’t care, I will eat it! It’s the one thing I couldn’t give up in my daily diet, even if I was lactose intolerant, I would just deal. I make sure to work out a little harder just so I can still indulge myself.
S!: What’s your favorite part of your body?
Staci: I would have to say my eyes. They can either be green or blue depending on what I’m wearing and they can be very striking.
S!: Any weird hobbies?
Staci: I love anything and everything Halloween so turning my house into a haunt is always a favorite past time during the fall. I also really enjoy doing gore make-up, the bloodier and more gruesome the better.
S!: What’s your ideal date?
Staci: Getting to enjoy great food, maybe a little wine, good company and conversation then cuddling up to watch a movie at the end of the night. I know, dinner and a movie, how cliché, but that’s my ideal date, just some genuine time to spend with someone.
S!: Which feature on your body gets the most attention?
Staci: Usually people notice my eyes, but I’ve been told on several occasions that my rear end is pretty noteworthy too. Haha.
S!: Where has been your favorite place to shoot?
Staci: There was a location just outside of downtown Houston that still has my heart. It’s no longer a studio, but Muse was a beautiful location for the shootouts I attended there. The building has so much character and just moving down the hallway felt like a completely different place due to the unique architecture. The shots always came out beautifully with all the natural light and amazing ambiance found throughout the whole building.
S!: What’s your secret to staying in shape?
Staci: Unfortunately there’s no special secret, just food moderation and hardcore workouts! I wish I could say I eat a “clean” diet, but let’s face it, I like cheese, carbs and the occasional greasy burger. I just have to bust my butt at the gym so I can enjoy the foods I love. And I love them all! (except seafood, don’t go there lol)
S!: What drink would you order at a bar?
Staci: No doubt, a Long Island….then a margarita….then shots….then maybe a Citron Peach and Sprite. I don’t have a problem; really, I just thoroughly enjoy my adult beverages. haha
