Weekend Wear 3: Sequins, Spots & Made In The U.S.A.
No matter what you have in store for this post Valentine's weekend, I hope it includes at least a little sparkle. I love slipping sequins into my outfits in subtle ways. They are the perfect touch to brighten anyone's mood. Check out this skirt from Ruche:
It's such a great piece that could be dressed up or down. I chose to dress it down for this Weekend Wear inspiration by adding some fun blues and browns...and a few black spots :). Would you wear a mix of sparkle with spotted print?
On a slightly different note, I'd like to bring some attention to this incredible company I recently discovered: Imogene + Willie. They're a husband and wife team based in Tennessee. I enjoyed watching this video about their company. They're very passionate about selling quality products made in the U.S.A. and I look forward to investing in a few of their pieces in the future. Check them out! I've come to realize that I'd rather save up a larger chunk of cash to spend on a premium item than to spend multiple small amounts of cash on items that continue to get holes in them, unravel, fade, or fall apart all together. I'm challenging myself to invest more in quality products this year and to search out more companies that are based in the U.S.A. I intend to shop less, but save up so that I can spend a little more.
What are your thoughts on investment pieces and shopping with US based businesses?
