And there she was. The rainbow sequin blazer of my wildest fashion fantasies. As I held her in my loving grasp, with eyes closed tight, I imagined walking the stage of my favorite music festival. In front of a huge crowd, I so beautifully rocked my majestic blazer over a black bralette and high-rise biker shorts. I blew a kiss to the crowd... and then I'm back in the store, under the sobering, fluorescent lights, wondering what in the North America I'm going to wear with the dazzling, new obsession in my hands.
Ever been there? That piece that you just SO had to have. And then you see her, three, cold months later, unworn and weeping, in the corner of your closet. Or maybe you have pulled that piece off the rack several times, with immediate, intuitive excitement, only to put her back, with insecure wondering, time and time again.

Stylist #1: Our Dazzling, Big-Hearted Boss Boo, Miz Kali
"I am loving this lavender trend! The puff sleeve detail is another amazingly feminine vibe that is so in right now- I can't get enough! Oh and girl, Kan Can jeans are just the most comfortable thing you'll put on your booty. The price is right and the stretch is the best."
Stylist #2: Our Stunning Queen Bee of Organization, Manager Jenny
"I am always drawn to mustard hues and all things cozy, come fall. The balloon sleeves and crop fit makes this piece feel effortless and boho chic. I would style this sweater with distressed high-rise skinny jeans, cognac ankle boots, and statement clay earrings!"
Stylist #3: Our Gorgeous Preggo Goddess, Makayla
"Leggings have always been an essential for me. I love casual clothing for the comfort of the cold weather. My own leggings and grey sweater are paired with the Vintage Willows must-haves of rust suede boots, a sherpa jacket, and wide-brim, wool hat. When I wear this outfit again, I plan to put my hair in a bun and accessorize with gold hoops and red lipstick."
Stylist #4: Our Trendy MegaBabe, Victoria
"My current obsession is these bone colored boots by Chinese Laundry. They’re a statement piece that is so easy to dress up anything- winter or fall. They are reminiscent of the 70s, a decade I unfortunately was not around for! I’ve now paired them with a skirt a couple of times, and when it’s colder, adding a longline overcoat or cardigan looks stunning!
This long jacket gives me major throwback vibes because of the large lapels and cozy wool material. Makes me think of the 1970s, walking down the streets of New York. Throw over a t-shirt and skirt for a warm, fall look or over your favorite pair of “good-butt" jeans!"
Hey girl. Go buy that blazer.
