Millions of text messages, photos, and life events shared, yet we had only met in person once, for a blog collaboration during NYFW. She’s a mover and shaker, working as a fashion editor and stylist, dressing her clients across the globe. From Australia, London, and finally back to the US, my blogger bestie, Haili Pue of All Ze Details, is a tough one to catch. She’s a jet setter; always on the move.
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.
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 Valentines! The holiday of hearts is just 2 weeks away, and I’ve been busy styling a few looks to inspire your fancy night out with your beau, your bestie, or both! Typically I’d sport a little red cocktail dress for a night out, but I’ve got a new look for you. Meet the little red dress’s sassier, and older sister.
Her name was Norma. I fell in love with her the moment I laid eyes upon her. She was everything I had dreamed of, since about the age of five. Sophisticated and elegant, she had a sort of grace about her. You see, Norma was the first wedding dress I fell in love with exactly three years ago. Of course, I didn’t name her Norma. The bridal gown was designed by Watters, and I first met her at Lovely Bride, now located in Tribeca. Many girls dream of their wedding dress, their entire lives and of course I was one of those girls. Norma had me at hello. I wanted a dress that I could twirl in, and Norma sure took me for a spin. She was the very first gown I tried on, and the one that walked me down the aisle on my wedding day.
Fun fact about me. I dress up for everything, and I mean EVERYTHING! I love playing dress up, changing my look, and accessorizing every chance I get. Grant sounds like a broken record everyday, asking the same questions. “Babe, do you really need ten pounds of jewelry today? Why are you wearing a dress? Can’t you just wear sneakers? You know we’re just going to the grocery store right?” Over, and over I listen to the same nagging comments. My response is always the same. “Yes. I get it. This is me, and you married me this way. I promise I will never ever change.” I need makeup for the grocery store, the laundry room, and the gym (although it drips down my face). My reason being, I feel ready to attack my day, when I know I’ve put myself together. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember.
It’s about time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! The biggest question on our minds? Where will we celebrate, and what on earth shall we wear? Decisions, decisions. I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s Eve plans are always spontaneous. Of course, I have been dreaming of the perfect dress. Inspired by a fabulous, crystallized, Rhinestone Mask that I found at Bebe, I created an entire look for a New Years Eve Masquerade Ball. The mask is absolutely perfect for the occasion. I love the dramatic look of it.
