Personal Style InVESTments

Saturday, October 24, 2009

Hello, dear readers! Happy Saturday to you! As a reminder, the Mr. and I are in Thailand on vacation, making our way to Chiang Mai today. Enjoy today's guest post, which comes courtesy of the lovely Taylor of Sterling Style, who shows off a recent investment: a golden embroidered vest (a fun layering piece).

Personal Style: InVESTments

Hello Dream Sequins readers! My name is Taylor from Sterling Style a blog about fashion, style, and inspiration. When D asked me to guest blog for her website I jumped at the opportunity. Dream Sequins is a daily read for me. I love her take on new designers and she has positively fabulous style.

My personal style is very eclectic with a bias towards girlie bohemian glamor. I love anything that sparkles and takes an otherwise plain outfit and really gives it some edge. I also love to mix and match thrifted items with more expensive pieces. I have no problem wearing $5 dollar necklace with a $300 handbag. I really think it gives your outfit character.

In this look I am wearing one of my favorite vests from Urban Outfitters. This vest caught my eye and I snagged one of the last ones. I wear it all the time. It is so versatile. It goes with jeans, shorts and dresses. These days I try to only purchase items that can be worn with multiple clothes in my closet. That way I feel like I am investing in my wardrobe and not buying too many frivolous trends. I love the way it hangs and really shows off whatever you wear with it. Here I am wearing it with a Forever 21 dress and Urban Outfitter boots. However, you could easily change this outfit into a more evening look by adding some cute heels and exchanging my handbag with a clutch.

Thanks for letting my share some of my style tips with you. If you would like to see more head over to my blog!



Thanks, Taylor! I need to invest in a vest. (Try to say that really fast!) Check out Sterling Style for more styling tips and inspiration.

Taylor- you're so adorable. Thanks so much for doing the guest post! You look amazing! I'm very jealous of that vest.

Ambar: I'm totally having fun, but missing the blogosphere and Twitter. LOL. That's why I keep monopolizing my Mr's computer to check in. So OCD.

I love the glittery vest! This is so true about mixing things up- my Marc bag has been mistaken for a Target bag and a dress from Kohl's has been mistaken for Betsey! Funny!
