Guest Post: Brooke & Breanna from Style Sorbet

We are honored to be guests on such a fabulous blog! A little bit about us: we love clothes, shoes, and shopping, but mostly we love living with style. Obviously that includes more than just apparel. Our unique style largely comes from what we listen to, read and watch.  With that said, we thought it would be fun to share a few of our favorite things for inspiration.

Movie with style:

We’ll give you 3 reasons to love this classic film:

1) Deborah Kerr wears the most gorgeous dresses. We love that everything accents her waist with a perfectly placed belt. She is stunning but beyond that, every word she speaks or move she makes is done with such grace.

2) Cary Grant is the original McDreamy. Chivalrous, charming and handsome enough to make any girl swoon.

3) The love story is epic. Long before the days of “Sleepless In Seattle”, women found themselves weeping in theaters as they watched this relationship develop. Get the tissues. Get the chocolates.  And get ready.

Quote worthy: “Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.”

Book with style:

We heard about this book last year and were hooked by the title. How many “Hilton hoochies” are getting the world’s attention while “aspiring Audreys” wait in the wings? The book includes quizzes, recipes, social tips and even some Friends quotes, which, if you are anything like us, is enough to win you over. We think it’s even a great gift for girls who would like to be known for their class, dignity, and intelligence, rather than their infamous behavior.

Quote worthy: “Self-respect is one of the greatest assets a girl can possess, and yet it’s one of the biggest things we’re lacking these days. Oh, the shame that’s been documented by reality TV crews all over the world!”

Album with style:

Very few albums can be listened to start to finish without skipping tracks. This is one that passes the test with flying colors. No trace of a sophomore slump here! Some tracks, like “Rumor Has It” have cheeky lyrics and an up-tempo groove. Others, like “Turning Tables” and “Someone Like You” have haunting melodies and lyrics that show she’s no stranger to heartbreak. We love the old school soul in each one.

Quote worthy: “Regrets and mistakes, they’re memories made. Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?”

Warning: after enjoying the aforementioned movie, book and music, you may find yourself craving some old school fashion. We suggest getting on board with the revived cat eye sunglasses trend. Here’s our pick: Tory Burch Cat Eye Sunglasses.
Though I've not had the pleasure of meeting Breanna, I've known the ever-stylish Brooke since our good 'ol Lee University days.  Brooke's perfectly put together ensembles always stood out in the sea of pajama pants and sweats that is college life, so when I found out she and her sister started a blog I just had to ask them to guest post.  You can check out the beautiful Bryant sisters' blog, Style Sorbet, at and follow them on Twitter @StyleSorbet.  These girls are just starting out, but I'm pretty confident they've got some fabulousness up their sleeve.  Thanks for the fantastic post, ladies!
