Hello Beauties! Here in NYC, we are currently braving winter storm Juno. The weather teams and news crews seem to be going crazy. I’ll admit however, that I had the most beautiful walk home from the gym tonight. It was late. The streets were dark and quiet, with only the twinkling lights on the trees and street lamps to illuminate the way. I watched the snowflakes gracefully float to the ground as I walked. Instead of the chaos the news has been reporting, the night felt so peaceful to me. These are the little moments I love about New York. All of our transportation has been shut down here. So, what exactly does that mean? Snow dayyyy!
It’s almost time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! If you are hosting a New Year’s bash for friends or loved ones, you may be on a last minute shopping spree for the perfect entertaining pieces. Inspired by a theme of metallics, we’ve created an New Year’s Eve party guide to help you with your party planning. Wishing you a fabulous party, my hostesses. Clink your glass of bubbly and toast to 2015! xo
Hey Beauties! What’s hotter than a little red dress? Not much. I’ve had an infatuation with the color red all season, and I just can’t enough of the perfect, red cocktail dress. I am a girl in love with color. You’ll notice that people around you react differently to the colors you wear. The color red speaks louder than words. No descriptions necessary. The color conveys confidence, attention, and desire. It is a color to wear, when you want to be noticed. Think of the red dress, as the little black dress’s cooler, fancier sister.
Holiday shopping is in full effect and the stores here in NYC are absolutely packed with holiday shoppers. However, that holiday cheer seemed to fade for me, while standing in line just to walk down the street on Fifth Avenue. These shoppers are no joke! I love the spirit of giving, and of course shopping, so I was beyond excited to be invited to Saks Fifth Avenue’s Press Day.
Here at Sleepless in Sequins, it’s no secret that I like to play dress up. However, what you may or may not know, is that I’m a bit of a fitness fanatic as well. I can’t help myself. The gym is one of my favorite places to be, and when I say I love it, I truly mean that. When I shop or create wish lists, sporty outfits rarely make the cut. I can tell you that I’m not the most practical shopper. I choose fancy over practical, every day of the week.
Last year around the holidays, I opened a gift from my mother in law. I was beyond excited about the activewear capris she got me. I loved being able to have new fitness gear and not have to search for it. So for the sporties in your life, give the gift of fitness apparel. They’ll be doing jumping jacks for days! Here are are few of our favorite styles to start your search. Happy shopping!

It’s time to put your party pants on, people! How do you even begin to choose your favorites? I hear you. The variety of leggings out there right now is overwhelming. I have to admit, I’ve fallen into the trap. Lately, I find myself trying on every pair I can find. They are comfy, cozy, great for traveling, and you can easily fold yourself into a pretzel on the couch, even after an indulgent meal. Styling your outfit around leggings is fun too, because it allows for various layering options.
