Glitter Girl: Anh of 9to5 Chic

Glitter Girl: Anh Sundstrom

Glitter Girl, Anh of 9 to 5 Chic, effortlessly transforms her highly-enviable weekend wear to create work-appropriate ensembles that leave us all inspired to up the business casual ante! Mixing textures and prints as well as classic with trendy pieces, Anh instinctively creates looks that can just as easily be worn to the office as out for cocktails in the city.

Have you always had a fondness for fashion? What compelled you to begin blogging?
Yes – absolutely!  As soon as I could drive myself to the mall, I worked two jobs simultaneously (one at a shoe store and one at a clothing store).  You could say I was well on my way to building an expansive wardrobe of clothes and shoes within a few months!  I started blogging because work has me thinking/writing/speaking/acting seriously all of the time.  Blogging has become sort of my remedy, and most importantly, my creative outlet!

Describe your style in a few words.
Oh, this is far too easy! Nine-to-Five Chic.

Anh displays her sunglasses and jewelry for inspiration. Sunglasses: Prada, Stella McCartney, Burberry, Stella McCartney, H&M. Banana Republic Necklace. Assorted rings: CC Skye, H&M

To what / where do you turn for inspiration?
I turn to the amazing fashion bloggers I follow, as well as fashion magazines. Inspiration is truly everywhere; you just have to look around, find it, and make it your own.

Are you longing to delve into any specific summer trends?
I’m having a lot of fun with color this year! It is amazing to experience the effect it can have on your outlook – bright colors really do make you feel more cheerful!

What is your go-to item for an instant boost of confidence?
For instant confidence, I turn to leopard prints.  There’s no quicker way to feeling like you can take over the world!

    Great article! I love Anh’s blog and style and am in total envy of her shoe and accessory collection. Not only does she write one of my favorite blogs but she is one of the sweetest people, ever!

    LOVE THIS! Anh’s blog is one of my favorites..a lot of times on fashion blogs I see women who wear stuff to work that is fabulous, but I would be fired before I walked in the door. She proves that working in corporate america doesnt mean boring pant suits!

    I’m wondering if she walks to work in her heels though :)

    I love Anh’s blog – so down to earth and relatable. She is also the sweetest – not that I’ve ever met her in person! Never too busy to respond to a comment or a tweet. So while her wardrobe and style make her a glitter girl – her personality is definitely the icing on the (sparkly) cake!

    I too am a 9 to 5-er and look forward to inspiration from Anh’s blog each day! Sometimes it’s hard working a corporate job and trying to be fashionable, but Anh does it effortlessly!

    I love it! I feel this way all the time. i LOVE fashion but lifestyle does not allow me to indulge as freely as I’d like. so I tend to post about things that inspire me rather than what I actually wear. Now i’m wondering…maybe i should start posting for the ‘marketing consultant/mom” thing that i am. Part time casual clothes and part time professional clothing.

    Anh has a tremendous sense of style. I love the classy image she projects with her wardrobe, her home and her open and approachable writing. 9to5Chic is as much a morning treat as my coffee!

    those shoes! those cute puppies!

    Anh is a big inspiration to me, working in a conservative industry & needing a creative outlet – i certainly feel the same (accountancy doesn’t really push my buttons, i need to relax when i leave the office!)

    great work Glitter Guide!
