The Emmys Confirm What We’ve Been Saying All Along

The best primetime television awards for the past year have been announced! Let’s talk fashion, this years Emmys Red Carpet mimic our on trend style.

Our favorite TV stars tastefully called out their best features by focusing on unique details in the neckline.

From plunge to strapless, the stars know how to stand out. Most people are concerned with the fit of the dress, they forget the importance of the neckline. Highlighting this key feature will make you stand out from the crowd.



Don’t get us wrong, high necklines are in! The key is knowing how to style it. While high neck nightgowns are cozy, they shouldn’t necessarily be worn outside the bedroom.

Behind the Face of Pulse: Meet Katie

Pulse archives, 2009

Hi there!! My name is Katie Sullivan and I’ve been with Pulse since 2009!! That’s me in the picture above modeling one of our dresses back in the day when I first started. I’ll never forget when I was 16 and my dad told me I HAD to get a job. I’d heard of Pulse through my sister, so I walked in and asked if they were hiring. The rest is history. I started as a sales associate and now I do just about everything!

Times Square, New York City

I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I have two sisters, with me being the youngest. After graduating from Parkway West High School, (I figured I would just throw that out there since it’s the classic St. Louis question!) I moved to New York City to pursue a degree in Fashion Merchandising Management from the Fashion Institute of Technology. After my two-year associates degree was complete, I missed my family and STL so much that I moved back home. Luckily, Pulse hired me again and I finished my schooling in 2015 with a bachelors degree from Fontbonne University in Fashion Merchandising.

My sisters and me circa 1996

Since then, I’ve absolutely loved increasing my responsibilities at Pulse. If you’re a Pulse shopper, chances are you’ve seen one of my posts on Facebook or Instagram, or received an email from me at one point or another! I write all the descriptions for our flash sale items and even create our emails.

In most recent news, on April 9, 2016 I married my husband Tim. He’s a chiropractor in South County, MO. He’s originally from Ohio, but as a born and bred St. Louisian, I was quick to convince him to stay here in STL! Next to fashion, I probably know the most about chiropractic just from hearing my husband and brother-in-law (who is also a chiropractor!) talk together.

Favorite food:I find it SO HARD to pick one favorite food! I would have to say my favorite meal would be steak, rice or potatoes, broccoli, and salad. But, I also have a huge sweet tooth for anything chocolate!

Guilty Pleasure: Binge-watching Netflix shows! I hate to admit this, but a couple years ago I watched 10 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy in 3 weeks! I’ve also watched all of The Office, Parks and Recreation, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, The Hills, and probably others that I am forgetting!

Favorite TV Show: FRIENDS!! I can quote just about every line from every episode. For fun, my sisters and I enjoy quizzing each other on FRIENDS trivia!!

Favorite vacation spot: New Found Lake in Bristol, New Hampshire. My family has been going since before I was born! We’re planning another trip in summer of 2017.

Favorite Stores to Shop (Other than Pulse!): Nordstrom, Francesca’s

Favorite sports team: St. Louis Cardinals!! I am a huge baseball fan

Biggest fear: Snakes and Michael Myers!! If I have a nightmare, it’s about one of these two things. But, it still doesn’t stop me from watching the Halloween movies.

Favorite part about working at Pulse: The creative freedom and our loyal customers!



P.S- I really want to hear more about each of  you!! Reply in the comments section 🙂

Fabulous Fashion & Vintage Jewels

We had a great time this week collaborating with CS Gems! They are an online vintage jewelry boutique who search high and low for handpicked beautiful vintage and vintage inspired repurposed jewelry at awesome prices. Their goal is “to make vintage modern again” by mixing vintage pieces with today’s latest trends. I fell in love with their unique pieces right away. Check out their website here!

Their jewelry paired perfectly with our layered fall looks. We agree that plaid, blanket scarves, ponchos, and stripes are the must haves for the season!
