Interview with Sense & Sequins

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

One of my favorite blogs lately has been Sense & Sequins, written by two sisters in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Their posts are spot on with trends and they always incorporate a great mix of discount and designer, along with some of their local fashion favorites. Today, I'm featuring an interview with Holly and Casey about what inspired their blog and some insight into their fashion philosophies. 

1. What inspired you to start a blog?

Holly got really into reading blogs after she finished college. Fashion, cooking, DIY, you name is she would send it to me to read. I became hooked. She had mentioned to me several times that she wanted to create her own blog and she wanted me to do it with her. Finally after I graduated college I decided that I needed a creative outlet and the blog would be perfect for that. Friends and family were always coming up to us asking where we got our clothes and asking us for help with styling for special occasions and dates. It just seemed like a perfect fit for us. 

2. How would you define your style? 

Holly and I both tend to lean towards more classic and clean, but we will both throw you for a loop with a crazy pick every once in a while. 

3. Where is your favorite place to shop in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?

Fort Worth – BeeHive on Camp Bowie
Dallas – Milk & Honey on Henderson
Midcities – The Pink Hanger in Colleyville

4. What's your favorite thing in your closet?

Holly – Fendi Peek-a-boo bag and Alexander Wang Emile Satchel 
Casey – Vintage Louis Vuitton side bag

5. Would you rather splurge on one big item or buy a bunch of smaller things?

We both rather splurge on a couple big items a year, but we definitely buy a bunch of smaller things on a more consistent basis.

6. What's your dream vacation spot?

Holly – Phuket Thailand
Casey - Fiji or St. Barts

7. What's the one thing you can't leave home without?

Holly - Mascara on
Casey – My planner

8. Do you have any makeup or beauty secrets?

Holly – Blow-dry your eyelash curler for a better curl and It’s a 10 products are amazing!
Casey – Bobbie Brown shimmer brick on your cheekbones to make them pop

9. Who's your fashion icon(s)?

Holly – Gwenth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston
Casey – Olivia Palermo and Miroslava Duma

10. Name one thing on your wish list right now.

Holly - Clare Vivier messenger bag
Casey – Alexander Wang Rockie bag
