Bloggers We Love: Taylor Sterling
When blogger Taylor Sterling of Sterling Style contacted us about inventing a cocktail to celebrate the launch of her new site, Glitter Guide, we were thrilled! Seriously, with a name like that, we knew we had to pull out all the stops and the Sparkle-tini was born! We recently got the chance to ask her some questions about blogging, fashion and, OF COURSE, cocktails!!!
Fashionably Bombed: We love your blog, Sterling Style! Like us, you have a real passion for color and sparkle! So how long have you been blogging and how did you get started?
Taylor Sterling: I've been blogging for about 2 1/2 years now. It started as an online inspiration board. I wanted a place to share things I love and it just keeps evolving month after month.
FB: We OBVIOUSLY love the Glitter Guide! What was the inspiration for it and how did you get it started? Is it tough doing both Glitter Guide and Sterling Style?
TS: The inspiration for Glitter Guide came from my passion to share. I wanted to create a site that wasn't all about me. I had this vision of a place that had everything I admired and loved but was a collection of amazing things and people. Since I have an affinity for sparkles and color I thought it would be fun to have that be part of the focus. It's definitely hard to do both blogs everyday. I just remind myself that any job you want to be successful at is going to be hard so it better be something you love!
FB: We couldn't agree more! Plus, we believe that the harder you work, the luckier you get!
FB: As you know, we're all about two things: Fashion and Cocktails! So we have to ask you to describe your favorite outfit, and of course, what cocktail you would pair with it!
TS: I like to mix masculine and feminine together. So probably a sequin top, dark skinny jeans, a chic blazer, pointy black pumps, a colorful clutch and a glass of champagne!
FB: Sounds perfect!
FB: Is there a particular Fashionably Bombed cocktail/blog post that speaks to you? If so, what does it say?
TS: The Sparkle-tini is the official Glitter Girl cocktail--so I have to go with that one. It's like a fun party in a glass!
FB: We had a feeling you might say that! It's one of our favorites too!
FB: What would you wear to a Fashionably Bombed cocktail party and who would you bring with you?
TS: Since you ladies are all about fun I would have to play with my style. I would love to go in a neon hot pink dress and a giant pouf from ban.do. I don't mind who comes with me as long as they are down for a good time!
FB: Can we get a "LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE IT"!!!
FB: Do you have a signature cocktail that you're known for making? What drink do order when you go to a bar?
TS: This sounds so boring but I usually stick with champagne or a glass of wine. I used to order more interesting drinks but as I've gotten older I just stick with my favorites.
FB: Well you really can't go wrong with a nice glass of champagne!
FB: Is there anything else we should know about you and/or your blog? Got any exciting things in the works that you care to share?
TS: Let's just say we have some crazy cool features in the works on Glitter Guide. You're not going to want to miss!
FB: Exciting! Can't wait!!! Thank you so much Taylor!
