Behind The Scenes Of My Appearance On Good Morning America


Last week, I was on Good Morning America talking about the black Christmas Tree trend. I was referred by one of my wonderful friends over at Wayfair, who helped with an article I wrote for Forbes covering holiday décor trends

The Call 

If you didn’t know—let me tell you what happens when you get asked to be on GMA. They call you and say they are coming over in three hours! Seriously! They don’t send over hair, makeup or ANYTHING! There was literally one cameraperson! The whole thing works, but it’s kind of a hot mess.

It Takes A Village & Thirsty AF Emails

As many of you know from my Instagram, Speechless dresses me for a lot of events. I love this line because I’m petite and I’ve never had to alter any of their clothing. So, I emailed their publicist who is a friend of mine. I asked if they could bring over some options, immediately if not sooner. I honestly didn’t think they were going to hand deliver me dresses in an hour like Amazon Prime Now for the desperate. But that’s just another reason why I love them.

While I love print dresses—solids work best for television. So, I wore the Madeline Skater dress because it’s elegant but versatile. I can wear it to a business event or even to a causal wedding. A black dress can be boring, but it doesn’t have to be. The detailing really makes this dress unique.

Here are as few more Speechless Dresses you (and I) need right now—

Layla Sequin Slip Dress

I wore this to the Afterbuzz Holiday Party and it was a big hit. Accessories can make this look more casual or formal.

Sparks Fly Party Dress

This is such a sweet looking and fun dress perfect for the holidays or New Years Eve.

Sweet And Scalloped Lace Dress

Sophisticated front. Sexy back. Everyone wins!

The Look


We all know I have bad hair, so I was super thrilled that GlamSquad saved my life. LITERALLY, THIS IS THE BEST APP EVER. You can order hair stylists, makeup artists, or nail techs to your location. I was so impressed with the team that was sent over. They were so professional and I couldn’t have been happier!

GlamSquad is great for the holidays or just to save time when you are trying to do everything! You can use the app or book online. Use the link above and get $25 off your first service. It’s such a game changer.

While my makeup artist used mostly Anastasia palettes on my eyes, she also topped it off with Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art Lid + Line + Lash in Topaz Twinkle.

Another thing I liked about GlamSquad is that while they brought their own makeup, they helped me choose one of my own lip glosses so I could easily re-apply. I wore Fuel from Urban Decay’s Hi-Fi Shine collection. The nude color pops on television. It’s also very moisturizing, which is important because my lips are dry AF this season.
