December 4, 2016

When Grant and I met, we dated long distance for several years. He lived in Kentucky, and I was here in NYC. I would visit his hometown in Kentucky on the weekends. One day, as he drove me around, I noticed a sign that said Versailles. “Hey, you brought me to France,” I teased. Little did I realize, that there’s a Versailles in Kentucky too. I was caught in a daydream, as we drove. Wouldn’t it be oh-so-lovely to visit Versailles in France together one day? It would be quite the dream.

A Little Lace Holiday Dress You’ll Love

December 16, 2015

It’s 6:30am and I’m dressed for a cocktail party. A little lace dress, fancy shoes, wrapped in fur, with a smidge too much perfume. You walk out the door on a Tuesday morning like that right? Welcome to my world. The doormen must think I’m crazy, and my husband can confirm that. I get uncomfortable stares from little old ladies riding the elevator, as it looks like I’ve just completed the walk of shame with my makeup somehow still intact.

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.

Holiday Gift Guide: For The Sporty

December 15, 2014

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!
