This month we celebrate three glorious years since the launch of our style site, Sleepless in Sequins. It is a love and passion project, combining our skills of fashion and photography. Looking back on the past three years, reminds me of where we started, as well as how far we’ve come. You can measure success in numbers, clicks, or dollars, however to us, it’s about the journey. It’s our endless road that we’ve paved, and we walk this one together.
No, I don’t mean those melons! (But, we’ve got those too.) I’m talking about the hottest spring and summer accessories of the season! You may be jetting off to some sunny destination sometime soon, and you won’t want to leave these behind. They are the fanciest floats you can find, and they are the perfect addition to your spring or summer pool party.
Spring is finally here…#celebrationstation! Although, it doesn’t feel like it in NYC, you may be out and about shopping for an upcoming Spring vacation. I’ve been running around the city, doing the same. However, I’ll admit, that I’ve found it quite the challenge to find a great selection of swimwear while shopping the stores this week. It’s definitely been frustrating, as I’m running out of time. Lucky for you, I’ve found a fabulous selection of swimwear pieces for you to order online.
That’s right! We’re talking about one of the season’s hottest trends. Strappy design details are everywhere you look from street style, to evening gowns, as well as lingerie pieces.
This past Sunday, we celebrated the first day of Spring, with a forecast of snow. Lovely, right? However the sun was shining throughout the weekend, and so I definitely made the most of it. Last week, was crazy with my work schedule, but we did attend a fab magazine launch party for Reserved Magazine x J. Elster pop-up shop. It was hosted by super model and photographer Helena Christensen, model and actress, Brooke Shields, along with film maker and designer Jennifer Elster. I promised myself that I’d hibernate over the weekend, in hopes of getting lots of sleep, a few great workouts, and some cleaning accomplished. Quite the opposite of my plans, it was a jam packed weekend, but full of fun.
The sun is shining in NYC, it’s a bit brighter out, and you know what that means? It’s time to transition your wardrobe as well! I know it still may feel a bit too chilly, but I’m telling you to do it! Free yourself from the black winter abyss, otherwise known as your winter closet. Pull out your white denim jeans, pair it with a spring blouse or outerwear piece and it will refresh your look in an instant.

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.
