Meet Kelsey Rubin & Erica Ellis of

We’re Kelsey and Erica, twenty-something bloggers living in the heart of downtown Chicago. Friends by fate, coworkers by chance, partners in crime by design. In January of 2014, we created Sequins Are A Girl’s Best Friend as a place to document daily fashion inspiration, chic office looks, and how to ‘fake it until we make it’ in a city dominated by high end designers and pretty price tags. The idea behind our blog is to inspire women to wear the latest trends in fashion, both in their professional and personal lives. The kicker? We're doing it all on a budget in a very expensive city. Our trick is to invest in key statement pieces (like new jewels and suit separates) and pull the rest from clearance racks and our own wardrobes. The best part about our blog is that there are two of us--two minds, two ideas, two outfits behind every post. See more at:
