WEAR IS... ELIZABETH SHERWOOD?

Elizabeth Sherwood has magic in her veins. Her boundless creativity can be felt especially through her personal style which she shares on her fashion focused Instagram, StayGoldenGirl. She's not afraid to print mix or test out bold silhouettes and it would seem she possesses an uncanny ability to find buried treasure among the racks of every thrift store she goes to.

Today we get to enter her wondrous world of music, vintage and much more so keep reading for her thoughts on the color pink, Princess Diana and asking for what you want.

Hi, Elizabeth! Please introduce your wonderful self!

Hello lovelies! My name is Elizabeth Sherwood and I currently live in Nashville, TN with my songwriter sweetheart. I moved to Music City 7 years ago from the Richmond, VA area, and I have absolutely fallen in love with this town. I studied Fashion Marketing & Management at the Savannah College of Art & Design, which led me to my first career in fashion retail.

From a vintage shop, to Gap, to Burberry, I worked at 8 different retailers from the age of 16 to 25. Now, I work in digital and social media marketing, a field that I absolutely love. When I'm not thrifting and working on StayGoldenGirl, I love catching up on the latest digital/social media trends (nerdy, I know).

1. How would you describe your style in 3 words?

Oh, this is always so tough! I would say that my style is consistently feminine, vintage-inspired, and edgy. I love mixing sweet silhouettes and patterns with something more bold, minimal, and street style. I also ADORE the color pink, so that definitely lends to my more feminine approach to style. I'm always down to try something new, but these are the style mainstays that will always feel the most "me."

2. Who or what are your current biggest style inspirations?

I will always be inspired by fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn, Princess Diana, and Ali Macgraw (to name a few)! These leading ladies had such timeless styles, but weren't afraid to stand out and make a statement. Honestly, my mother has always been a huge fashion influence for me too- you will see why when she makes appearances on my Instagram! Accounts like @alyssainthecity, @baileywomack, and @aaricanichole are also endlessly inspiring.

3. What does personal style mean to you?

Personal style is all about the story that you want to tell the world. Before you even say a word, people see what you're wearing. It's the most challenging, inspiring, and creative quest to constantly tell this story in a new way.

4. What's on your thrift list right now?

So many things! I love the color green, which is HUGE for Spring 2020- I need more of it in my closet! I'm also interested in finding more vintage button-ups, satin slip dresses (so flattering), and little, colorful handbags. As I'm getting ready for warmer weather, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for cotton sundresses and strappy sandals too...I can never get enough!

5. Who would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?

Without question, Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, and Diane Keaton. Just the thought of this makes me giddy!

6. And the bonus question I like to ask everyone before they go: what's something you're really proud of right now?

I'm really proud of how far I have come with my account, StayGoldenGirl (juggling everything with a full-time job can be a lot sometimes)! I have never worked harder than I have in the past year, but it has been the most rewarding journey. I have learned that you should never sell yourself short...the things that you want aren't that far away, sometimes you just have to ask for them.
