Fabulous Fashion Friends: Too Many Sequins

I've  been blogging for almost 3 months now and continue to be inspired every day by so many fashionable and fabulous chicks that I meet here in blog world.

One of my favourite bloggers, Jess from Too Many Sequins, has amazing style and such an original approach to fashion expression. I love her outfits and wanted to share a little of my Jess obsession with you!



I love the bold prints and statement neckpieces she rocks in her outfits; as well as an awe inspiring collection of amazing shoes!


I love the way Jess mixes such different textures and patterns to make an original outfit. I'm sure there will never be any of those awkward 'she has the same outfit as me' moments when she heads out!



I've been talking to Jess quite a bit over the last month or so and eagerly await her posts everday with baited breath! I asked her to write a few little words about what inspires her fashion and was blown away when she sent me this:

" I once heard someone say "fashion is wearable art" - that's always stuck with me. Art and fashion are a way to express yourself, to show the world who you are. Those words inspire me. Life, music, people, sights and sounds - all inspire me and the choices I make in fashion. Sometimes I want to be really chic or indie - music always helps me to centre myself before getting dressed. Before I even think about getting dressed, I sit down and put my music on, do my make up and think, who do you want to be today. I know that sounds really silly - but it helps me! lol 

Olivia asked me what inspires my fashion - and my answer is... everything. I've had a lot of trouble finding a way to put this into words. Above was my best attempt. It's really hard to sum up me and my style. It changes from day to day, minute to minute and over the course of my blog I can see how much I've changed. And that's why fashion is my best friend - a pretty dress makes me feel better, a lush bag makes my eyes light up - and an amazing pair of heels, well it makes me taller, but fashion is always there with you, as you grow and change. Sappy but true"
































If you haven't already become hopefully hooked on her blog like I have, go check it out NOW!!! She continues to inspire and motivate my outfits everyday and I hope that in the future I will have the fashion skills and adventurousness that Jess seems to have in spades. Thanks Jess for being such a fashion icon, I can't wait to see where your adventure goes next!

  17. Hey there, thank you for your sweet comment! How awesome is your blog! I was already feeling a bit an outcast because I'm not superskinny as somehow most fashionistas are at heartifb.com (I have nothing to complain, but skinny skinny will I never be! I love food too much) I love your style. Want to follow each other? Love Jenna

  18. She does have an amazing style ...... music is a good partner when choosing what to wear, I love it because you end up wearing what you really want to wear as opposed to what you are told looks good on you. I love her outfits but the top she is wearing on the 1st picture is beautiful as well as the very last outfit with the nude jacket .... Gorgeous!
