Guest Post: Born & Bread

I can always offer you lovely readers some fun little fashion finds, but I am most definitely not an expert. In an effort to bring you a little something new and different, we have a guest post today from some very talented ladies in fashion. Julie and Lauren have one of my favorite blogs, Born & Bread, and are incredibly talented. Today they are here to share some GORGEOUS options for spring! Hope you enjoy!


We're so excited to be at Things that Sparkle today! When it comes to interior design, we love how Alex takes sophisticated concepts and translates them into creative, yet accessible variations appropriate for the home.

At B&B we aim to inspire our readers in the same way by bringing the runway to reality in both style and price. We love blogging about high fashion and street trends alike, but the trick is to interpret the best of these outfits into your everyday wardrobe.

For our guest post today, we're inspired by Prada's Spring 2011 ad campaign that elicits the feel of the legendary jazz age entertainer, Josephine Baker. The flamboyant ad captures various warm weather trends such as bright colors, bold prints and modified silhouettes.

To achieve this look we've scoured high and low to find these great pieces. The free-spirited pieces are a bit daring, but we say go bold and mix and match the pieces into your wardrobe for the most modern look.

Orange Oversized Sunglasses, Topshop $18
Two Tone Wide Brim Hat, Zara $39.90
Lucite Small Hoop earrings, Alexis Bittar $95
Yellow Spot Tie Blouse, Topshop $36
