Hi there! My name is Jessica Sturdy and I’m a twenty-something living in New York City. I’m a brand development manager by day and a blogger by night. Welcome to Bows & Sequins, my fashion-focused lifestyle blog. Here you’ll find posts about my personal style and current inspirations, my two cents on beauty products, and other tidbits from life in NYC! Prior to moving to the East Coast, I was born and raised in Illinois. While I loved living in Chicago, I couldn’t be happier with my decision to move to New York.

I’m kind of a coffee snob, a little bit of a foodie, and a self-proclaimed cocktail connoisseur. Love a good beer or glass of Sauvignon Blanc, too. You can usually find me eating and drinking my way through the city, quite literally. As a result, I’ve learned to become bit of a fitness freak, too. When I’m not crossing new restaurants off of my ever-growing list, you can probably find me on a bike at Soul Cycle. More random facts? I love watching sports and want to be a DJ in my next life. A sequin-clad, gingham-wearing DJ.

I like to think of my style as feminine, polished, and playful. Ever-evolving, too. I used to be predominantly preppy, but living downtown (East Village) in New York for the past 2 years has definitely influenced my clothing choices. I may not wear bows and sequins everyday, but I like to think of my blog name as more of a metaphor for how I like my life to be — fun, sparkly, and girly.
