Meet My Blogger Bestie, Hallie Friedman of Sleepless In Sequins

Back in NYC for Fashion Week and I could not have made it through the week without my Blogger Bestie, Hallie of Sleepless In Sequins. We strolled through the park and had a few laughs to do a shoot, but this is what our typical hang-outs are like.

We met via Instagram a couple of years ago, while on a stopover in NYC, before a flight back to London - where I was living at the time, and we collaborated together for Elaine Turner, and the rest was history. Hallie is a fabulous blogger, and jewelry designer and if that wasn't enough she also works full-time - I don't know how she does it! We have kept in touch ever since (only meeting once before this, and stayed in-touch) and became instant friends from there.

Now everytime in NYC I must see Hallie, and I keep in touch with her no matter where I am in the world. She has such a fabulous knack for blogging, and putting fabulous outfits together, and she has become such a great and inspirational friend. She is definitely the Serena to my Blair. And brings a bit of a Sex In The City vibe to her blog, that I love about each and every one of her outfits featured on Sleepless in Sequins.

We went and shopped our little hearts out for this post; We shopped in between shows from NYFW and had no time to change into flats what we featured were outfits that we selected to wear in our own everyday wardrobe and I loved that we coordinated. Polka dots consistent within each pattern and each dress perfect for shifts - perfect from day-to-night. 

We were long overdue for catch ups and I loved exploring more of NYC with Hallie this last week. We took on an after-party event at Rebecca Minkoff, caught a cab for tea at Laduree, did the naughtiest and most-touristy dessert at Serendipity (It wasn't our fault to be so touristy, we joined a group of other blogger babes at Serendipity that we enjoyed the company of; Double Shot of Sass, It's All Chic To Me, Tayler Malott, and Ling Wang Photography and to top that off I'm always in the mood for this touristy spot, since Serendipity is one of my favorite movies) and if that wasn't enough we went to Tavern On The Green not once or twice where I may or may not have indulged twice in carrot cake; Which you should try, by the way, it's fabulous.

We literally did a stroll through Central Park, in heels, and caught up. And the photographs are just glimpses of our little catch-up. I truly love this gal, and you should definitely check out her blog, Sleepless In Sequins, and follow her on Instagram at @sleeplessinsequins. Browse her fabulous jewelry, that she hand-designs, on her blog as well! I love her jewelry, she is so incredibly talented. Her blog is fabulous and definitely going places; Her imagery, fashion, and talent are definitely going to put her blog on the spot. 

All of the photos were done by Grant Friedman, Hallie's husband who is a crazy-incredibly-talented photographer who does beautiful imagery, his work is absolutely incredible and you must check out his site. His links are posted on all of the photography above. He's hands-down going to be a household name in photography one day. Hallie and Grant are the ultimate super-talented-duo. The ultimate power-couple. They both inspire me so much, and Grant some how found the time to do our fun images through Central Park on top of fashion week, so thank you for that! 

Hallie is going to be with me throughout every fashion week going forward, because tea (a proper sit-down hot tea with a splash of milk...aka Marie Antoinette tea at Laduree), processco, carrot cake, and just all-around slowing down to catch up are much needed in this crazy fashion-forward life.
