Hang those streamers, add rainbow sprinkles to the doughnuts, pop the bubbly, and don’t forget your crystal tiara! You bet your fancy booty, I’ll be wearing mine today! It looks like we’ve got one serious celebration on the horizon.
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.
All black everything. I can only take it for so long. I begin the Fall season embracing the color, and by February, I want to cry. Sure, there are days when I feel amazing in a little black dress, or leather skirt, however after awhile it can feel like a uniform. If you’re like me, and you crave color, I’ve come up with a few great ensembles to lighten and brighten your fall wardrobe, while still looking appropriate for the season.
We just closed out a beautiful Fall weekend in NYC. The air feels crisp, the leaves are beginning to turn, and I can’t go anywhere without a warm cup of hazelnut coffee; mainly to keep my hands warm. We strolled through Central Park this weekend per usual, and as I looked up, the leaves fell from the trees and gracefully floated to the ground in an array of fall colors.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing. The city is bustling with designers showcasing their latest collections, and models walking the runways, while editors and fashionistas have taken over the town in their fanciest stilettos, just to get a piece of the action. Since I work in the fashion industry, I will tell you that fashion week trumps it all. Fashion brands and designers hustle the entire year to put together their collections, which are on display during fashion week. You’ll never see the work that goes into each collection behind closed doors, but let me tell you from experience, it is quite a labor of love.
Hello Beauties! I hope you had a wonderful Easter/Passover holiday this past weekend. I was lucky enough to travel to St. Petersberg, Florida with Grant, to celebrate my sister’s 30th birthday bash. We had multiple events planned from fancy dinners, champagne sunsets on the beach, pool days, celebratory brunches, tennis matches, etc. You name it, we did it. In true Sleepless in Sequins fashion, every single day was a celebration, and my sister loved every moment. I knew that packing would be a challenge, with so many fabulous summer options. The weather here in NYC has still been cold, so I could barely wait to rescue my spring looks from my closet.
I’m a girl in love with color, and I’m currently counting down the days to ditch every black outfit in my wardrobe. I cannot wait to sail through spring with punchy, vibrant colors and flirty silhouettes. You’ll rarely see me choose basic styles or colors, however every once in awhile, a piece comes along, captures my heart, and I just can’t manage to live my life without it.
Beware of Snowmaggadon 2015! We were warned for several days of winter storm Juno, which was about to wreak havoc on New York City. We did the usual grocery shopping, stocked up on the essentials, and of course I decided to go shopping on my way home. It’s all about the necessities in emergency situations! I stopped by the gym, trudged through the powdery snow on my walk home, and settled in for the night, knowing I’d either be making snow angels in the morning or sledding to work, since transportation was down.
The winter months are upon us and with that comes the unpredictable rainy, snowy weather. As much as I dread the temperatures, I’m loving the fun, fancy cold weather accessories I’ve found this season.
Sorel is a footwear brand that has recently stolen my heart. I’ve never been a girl who dresses practically. I love sparkly, fancy outfits which are rarely weather appropriate. While attending a Vogue style party, I was introduced to Sorel’s Fall/Winter boot collection. Sorel is best known for their waterproof boots. They are perfect for trudging through any sort of crazy weather. We were able to choose the style we liked best, and my eyes were immediately drawn to the Medina II Boot.
Fall is in full swing, and it leaves me inspired by my favorite trends of the season. I have a passion for color, and often choose fashion forward colors to build my wardrobe for each season. From Emerald to Forest, and Army Green, shades of green have been on trend for Fall.
