fashion battle of the coasts : Sequins

this weeks battle:

Hiya Everyone! I'm super excited to be introducing to you a new segment/collaboration that i'll be doing on my Youtube channel as well as here on my blog.
You're probably asking! WHAT IS THIS : Fashion Battle of the Coasts
But you could probably guess by looking a little more into the title because it is kinda self explanatory; but yes, me and my friend Corey aka misspebblesss on Youtube are going to duke it out during each segment by styling a certain trend or article of clothing that we are digging at the moment!! 


And yes, you probably guessed by now already, but we call it the battle of the "coasts" because Corey lives in sunny laid back California, so she's got that really awesome beach kinda look to her hair and of course she's super stylish. On the other hand i'm a die hard New York girl so I usually dress a little more structured. 

Now that i've explained the segment a little i'll get right into it.
This week trend of choice is Sequins!!!! 

EAST COAST, NY take on Sequins:
I love sequins because they usually are the statement piece of your outfit, and they make you feel like you are going to a party no matter how you include it in your outfit; it might be in a blazer like Corey, or shorts like me. 
1. Color Block Sweater - H&M 2. Bowtie - DIY 3. Button Up - GAP 4. Heels - Jeffrey Campbell 5. Sequin Shorts - Forever 21 6. Polka Dot Stockings - Urban Outfitters 7. Clip On Turquoise Earrings - Forever 21 8. Cocktail Ring - Forever 21 9. Blue Leather Purse - Thrifted 

WEST COAST, CA take on Sequins:
This girl is fab-u-lous!!!!! It's awesome how we both choose to wear statement heels; and lemme tell you hers will be in my closet as soon as I can get my hands on them...fingers crossed we're the same size! LOL!

Corey's outfit is amazing, she is totally owning that gold sequin blazer... i mean literally she does, but you know what I mean LOL! 
It's crazy though how we both thought to pair our outfits with polka dotted tights, clearly we both have good taste!!! Love her outfit, love the hair & makeup! Gotta love this girl!!
1. Gold Sequin Blazer - INC 2. Shirt - Anchor Blue 3. skirt - Forever 21 4. Polka dotted Nylons - Nordstrom Rack 5. Purple Glittery Heels - Marco Santi 

I think we both did amazing styling our SEQUINS!
How about you?

MY Favorite part of the outfit other than the shorts would def have to be my shoes <3 <3 <3

  8. Ugh I love sequin shorts, but whenever I wear them, my friends think I'm being crazy. Hahahaha! I'll ease them into it somehow ;) THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENT! I'm gonna have to ease my family and friends into me wearing lipstick too. The thing about lipstick is that my lips get dry so I tend to put on a lot of chapstick during the winter. And lipstick makes my lips feel weird. I don't really like lipgloss much bcause its too sticky! Thanks for your suggestions ;) I'll def go check it out. I'm at work right now and there's a Sephora near here!

  10. Jeffery Campbell sure has quite the funky shoes. Great post. I love sequin but I like to wear it at night for a nice dinner or party...maybe because I'm a young mother of 2, I can no longer pull off the daytime sequin look. It looks amazing on you. I am a new follower of your blog. Come and visit me at the-wardrobe-stylist.blogspot.com.
