COFFEE FIRST Sequin Sweatshirts // SS16 Collection

Since 2011 I’ve been creating sequin embellished apparel (see here, here & here!) and selling my designs since 2014 (see here & here!). I’ve always had a special place in my heart for sequins! Last year, in October, I released my first all-sequin embellished line of short-sleeve sweatshirts to the public! The most popular design was the “Coffee First” sweatshirt and was sold out before I even uploaded them to my online boutique! I had people texting, e-mailing, PM-ing, Tweeting and Instagram-ing me, BEGGING to buy the sweatshirt after I posted the first teaser image on Instagram! Because of that incredible popularity (and…

My 1st Pop Up Shop Showcase & How I Got Ready for It!

As readers of this blog I’m sure you’re all aware of my Etsy shop, Glitter & Bow. It’s my ‘baby’ and one of the many ways I show my creativity! I had planned my first live pop up showcase for next Summer, but as I mentioned in a previous blog post, I was very honored and excited to be invited by RAW Artists to participate in their October showcase in Nashville. I jumped at the opportunity to try something on a small scale so I could ‘dip my toes’ in the proverbial pop up pool! A video posted by ♡…

Brand Rep Instagram Spotlight

I absolutely love seeing my sequin hangers shared on Instagram! Recently I’ve started working with two of my favorite bloggers and one of my favorite Etsy shops as reps for the Glitter & Bow brand. Today I wanted to tribute a little shout-out for all the lovely photos they have posted on Instagram featuring G&B sequin hangers. I think the best advertising for any product is showing potential shoppers how an item can be used in real life. Below you’ll see Lexie (J’adore Lexie Couture) using her sequin hanger to display her and her daughter’s favorite clothing, Oksana (Foxy Oxie)…

Sequins All Around!

Hey y’all! I wanted to share the latest addition to the Glitter & Bow Etsy shop this weekend : Sparkly Personalized Sequin Initials for your office, home, wedding table toppers, nursery decor, or anything you can think of!I will be honest… 100% of the goodies in my shop are a direct result of me having a vision of the perfect item and not being able to find it anywhere for a decent price. I’ve seen sequined letters of different sizes and colors for sale various places but was never impressed with the quality or price. The ones I created are made of…

How To : Wear a Blanket Scarf

Today’s post is certainly not an original concept. There are more than likely literally 100s of scarf tying tutorials out there… This post is simply to round up my favorites for easy access!First, you’ll need a blanket scarf. Every year Zara releases a beautiful array of plaid/tartan blanket scarves in the softest of weaves… however, they always sell out very fast (within weeks usually of becoming available online). For those of you who missed the most popular 2013 style you can now PRE-ORDER it from the Glitter&Bow Goody Bar on Etsy!** I have these available at my wholesale price discount since…
