Hello Beauties! Today, I’m channeling my inner Malibu Barbie, in a hot (and I mean hot) pink romper. I was recently speaking with a friend and complimenting her bright yellow dress, when she told me that the color yellow is all she had been choosing this season. While we were chatting, we agreed that every season we tend to gravitate to a certain color. I realized that my season’s color is hot pink. It’s funny though, because I haven’t loved it in the past, but for some reason I can’t resist the bright pop of pink.
Hello printed paradise! I absolutely cannot tear myself away from prints this season. I think it’s safe to say this printed obsession of mine comes around every spring. I realized this last year, when a few girls in my office laughed because I wore, yet again another printed dress to work. I gravitate towards florals, however this brilliant Arena Dress, by Trina Turk instantly caught my eye. The simplicity of the silhouette, allows for the stunning, colorful print to shine.
Last week’s sunny, Sunday afternoon was perfection. I did the usual; woke up, hit the gym, and got ready for our usual Sunday outing through Central Park. The most amazing part was that the park was bursting with color that day. Everything is in bloom, and the park was buzzing with people, kiddies, and picnics complete with colorful balloons. There are days when the park feels like a complete celebration and Sunday was one of them.
Spring has sprung and it’s time to celebrate! As I peruse my closet, I wonder what I really wore last spring. I’m definitely ready for a whole new, fancy wardrobe and I hope you are too. I took the liberty of finding some pieces that inspire me, and I that I think you’ll love as well. The pastel colors are just perfect for the season. I’m also loving bright brilliant colors as well as intricate prints. I have an accessory obsession, so you’ll find a few fun pieces to play with. Happy shopping, Beauties! xx
Pop. Clink. Fizz! We are poppin’ bottles and celebrating 2 years since the launch of Sleepless in Sequins today! Oh, what a two years it’s been. With hundreds of styles featured, numerous events supporting our favorite brands, runway shows, and the gift of working with my very best friend and husband, I feel lucky for the experiences we’ve shared over the past two years.
Do you have a favorite outfit or style you wear on repeat? Mine is Yumi Kim’s Liz Romper. Thankfully for me, Yumi Kim makes this style in a million different gorgeous prints. So no, I don’t exactly wear one romper on repeat. I have a closetful of Liz Rompers to choose from. Believe me when I tell you, that you’ll fall in love with this style and will buy every single print as well.
While I tend to be the queen of prints, there’s something to be said for a truly classic, chic look using solid colors. I love the elegance and sophistication of a pure white dress. It is a clean look which is truly flattering on anyone. Neutral colors are always on trend for spring, and they remind me of a blank canvas. A beautiful, simple silhouette draws attention to a woman’s face, and also leaves room to play with accessories. The Robe Remerciement Dress by Sandro Paris fits the body perfectly, and has an interesting, sheer geometric detail. I also love the open detail in the back. Sandro Paris has some incredibly stunning pieces in their Spring collection.
We are celebrating one year, since the launch of Sleepless in Sequins. Our party was planned, but now, what to wear? This is an important occasion for us, and I wanted to choose a very special outfit. I came upon the most gorgeous Alice and Olivia, sequin Taryn Dress at Saks Fifth Avenue. It is one of the most gorgeous dresses I’ve ever owned. Shades of blue are on trend for spring, so this was perfect. As I tried the dress on at Saks, I explained our celebration to the sales women. They were so sweet, helpful and just as excited as I was about our photo shoot.
It has officially been one year since the launch of Sleepless in Sequins. We created our site through a combined love for design, style, and photography. Meet the man behind the camera, Grant Friedman. He is my husband, photographer, and best friend. Together we create style shoots, attend fashion events, and runway shows. He challenges me, and inspires me to create every day. Sleepless in Sequins has become our hobby, our love, and our direct connection with the fashion and photography industries.
