Taylor Sterling Tests Her Credit Limit At Neiman Marcus

Our galpal, Frisco blogger Taylor Sterling of Sterling Style, ain't one for feathers and bling. Nope. Her lady-chic style is simple, sophisticated, and straightforward. T.S. lets her choices in prints to do all the talking. For a demonstration of her personal retail theory, she grabbed our own S.F. Editor, Katie Hintz-Zambrano (who didn't need much convincing), and hit up the sunlight-filled Neiman Marcus off Union Square for a good ol' fashioned afternoon of testing her credit limits. Now, we're not going to tell you if Sterling dared to go home with that spike-sleeved top, the blue-and-black sundress, or that almost edible bordeaux handbag. That's between Taylor and the good people at Visa and Mastercard, thankyouverymuch. But we have a feeling that the beautiful blonde left Neiman Marcus with a certain pair of velvety pumps (the ultimate accessory for her style), and a bottle of perfume under her arm. You'll only know what she purchased by, duh, keeping an eye on her blog.

We love mixing textures. Furs, leather and shimmer this season is all we need to keep our stable blacks from looking too drab. Try pairing them together for an even bigger statement.
