IT’S HERE! THE DAY IS FINALLY HERE!
I’M OVER THE MOON AND OBVIOUSLY SO EXCITED THAT I CAN HARDLY STAND IT!
CUE THE GLITTER, Y’ALL!
Without further ado, I would like to introduce The Sheaffer top to you!
If y’all love it even half as much as I do, I’ll be thrilled. #becauseiloveit #likereallyloveit #alot
Isn’t it GORGEOUS? I mean, I get that I’m biased. #butitISgorgeous
The Sheaffer top combines flirty ruffles and gorgeous lace. It’s both sweet and a little bit sassy, which I think is the perfect combination for a festive holiday party! (I’d like to think I’m sweet and a little bit sassy too. So this top is totally a representation of me. Ha!)
When dreaming up what I wanted in a top, pretty lace and a dainty sleeve were at the top of my list.
Having a little sleeve was important to me because I don’t love baring my arms, especially in the winter months. And I think the feminine little ruffle at the bottom is the perfect finishing touch.
Now, let’s talk sizing. In Gibson pieces, I typically wear a small, and sometimes even an x-small. However, I sized up to a medium in this top. It doesn’t have much give across the chest, so I definitely needed the extra room.
I love all 3 colors of the top, but I’m obsessed with this gorgeous cranberry. And when I found the earrings, I knew they were going to be perfect. They are pink, red, and gold with a little bit of bling. There’s also a lovely shiny black pair that would be great with other pieces in the collection.
Now let’s talk about the accessories. Give me ALL THE BLING for a holiday party, please!
Y’all have seen the wrap around blingy bracelets for months now (still love them and wear them all the time), but the drusy bar bracelets just recently hit the site! They actually come in a set of 3 and are shockingly pretty in person. They appear much more expensive than they actually are, and they are great worn on their own or stacked!
And how sexy are these shoes! True to size for me, and actually pretty dang comfy for high heels! They come in tons of color options, but I was immediately drawn to the mesh dot pattern. I wore them on my recent Girl’s Trip to NYC with a floral blouse and coated skinny jeans (click HERE to see the outfit and my NY recap).
In addition to the gorgeous cranberry above, the top also comes in a totally chic black and a bright white.
Here’s the white!
I thought the white lent itself to a more casual look. You could of course be holiday ready in this top, but it would also be great for a date night or a girl’s night out year round. Styled with boyfriend jeans, some great sparkly statement earrings, and my leopard heels…I absolutely LOVED the look!
I’ve been having a lot of fun with my boyfriend jeans, and I’ve found that I really like them with heels! Click HERE to see tons of different distressing levels and washes of my favorite Catherine boyfriend jeans. Plus sizes also available!
You do have to wear a strapless bra with The Sheaffer top, but if you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I sing the praises of this particular strapless bra. NO OTHER STRAPLESS BRA WILL DO.
I know I’ve turned thousands of y’all onto it as well! It is so amazingly comfortable that I actually sometimes wear it, even when a strapless bra isn’t required. It doesn’t fall down, you will never have to pull on it, and you will forget you are wearing it. SERIOUSLY. It’s amazing, and the world needs to know about it.
Now, before we continue with the collection, I feel something needs to be said.
I want all of you to know that I’m “HAVING A MOMENT” today. When I think back to when I started this blog 6 years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think that people would respond to it like they have and support me like y’all do. I’m forever grateful that you take time out of your day to come over and see what I’m doing, that you tell your friends about the blog, and that you are so incredibly supportive of all things Sheaffer Told Me To. It’s because of YOU that I was presented with this opportunity, and that is not lost on me.
So, THANK YOU. Thank you for your love, your continued support and loyalty, and your enthusiasm over this collection!
As a thank you, I want to be able to pick a handful of people to send a personal thank you gift to! I’m not exactly sure what I’m going to do yet, but I’ll announce the winners on Friday! To throw your name in the hat, all you have to do is leave a comment. Comments on this blog post, on my instagram posts, and on my facebook posts will all be considered entries. I’ll be posting on social media throughout the day, so just leave a comment on as many pics as you’d like! Each comment will be an entry!
Okay, back to the collection! You’ve seen the cranberry and white, now it’s time for the black.
I think the classic black is STUNNING. It’s styled here super casually, but think how great it would look with black coated skinny jeans and tall black OTK boots (fantastic reviews and ON SALE!) or just some sexy black heels (these are on sale). I also think this top would look amazing under a tailored blazer.
Looking back, I wish I would have had these jeans on with the wedge sneakers for the shoot. The skinnier line of the jeans below looks better with the wedge sneaks. Let my mistake be a learning experience for you! Click HERE for some wedge sneaker options.
You’ve got a good shot of the earrings in this pic too! They are a perfect statement earring and are ON SALE!
So, y’all know that The Sheaffer isn’t the only top in this party! There are tons of other GORGEOUS pieces to choose from. You can click HERE to see the entire collection, all of the namesake tops, plus some additional pieces!
Let me re-introduce you to the other ladies in the Glam Squad. We all had the best time together when shooting the collection in L.A. last month!
Here are some other Glam Squad ladies in their Sheaffer tops! How great do they all look!
Tara, Mallory and Erin, Ashley, Mallory, and Megan
And now let’s check out the rest of the collection!!! You are going to love everything! The velvets are as soft as can be, the sequins are so well done, and the lace is delicate and pretty. And the colors? They are stunning. As a general rule, I do think the collection runs on the small side, so I would suggest sizing up if between sizes. And don’t just think Christmas, all of these pieces would be wonderful for a New Year’s Eve party as well! And so many of them can be worn throughout the year.
I’ll talk more about the individual pieces later this week, but today I just want to make sure you see them all!

There are some additional pieces in the collection that weren’t collaborated on with a specific blogger, but they sure are cute! I’ll show 1 today, and others later this week.
BONUS: The Sequin Flutter Sleeve
This tee is way more than just a regular ol’ tee. It’s elevated with the sequins and the flutter sleeve. It’s darling and so versatile. It could be worn all year long for a night out on the town, but it’s definitely fancy enough for holiday wear as well. I sized up to a medium in this one too.
These black coated skinny jeans are stretchy, comfy, and will look great with lots of different tops in the collection. And they are an awesome deal! I’m wearing my regular 27s, and the sandals are true to size as well.
So, ladies! HOW FABULOUS IS THE ENTIRE COLLECTION?!? I feel like there is something for everybody. Thanks to Gibson and Nordstrom, we are all going to be party ready and GORGEOUS as we are walking out the door this holiday season!!!
Before you go, I also wanted to share with y’all some FABULOUS accessories and clutches (many that just launched) that would also compliment the above looks! Everything listed is under $100, and some items are under $40!
- cranberry red box clutch with crystal flower closure
- baguette crystal statement earrings
- gold and bling star drop earrings
- silver or rose gold glitter pumps
- silver ankle strap sandals 40% OFF
At the end of the day, I’m just so incredibly honored and proud to be a part of this group of women. Several of them were friends before the shoot, and now I’m happy to have new friends! It’s so nice to be a part of a group where women are supporting women. I truly believe the James Keller quote that says, “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” I want to always be helping to light other candles!
All right, I’ll have more later in the week, but that’s it for today! Don’t forget to leave comments today to enter in to my THANK YOU giveaway! Comments on social media will be counted too. In fact, I’ll pick 1 winner from the comments section here on the blog, 1 winner from the comments on facebook, and 1 winner from the comments on instagram! Remember, I’ll be posting on social media throughout the day, so just leave a comment on as many pics as you’d like! Each comment will be an entry!
And of course, a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to Gibson and Nordstrom for including me in this amazing group of women. I’m so grateful for this once in a lifetime opportunity.
