Holiday Gifting with Kendra Scott

Kendra Scott Holiday 2017

This season has been full of holly jolly blogger events!

Each one has introduced me to such AMAZING gift ideas that I’m getting all of my holiday shopping done at events and I get to share my top picks with you!  It’s perfect.

Last week I attended a bling bling blogger event at Kendra Scott in Fashion Show where I got up close and personal (yes I seriously tried on everything in the store) with their holiday collection of beautiful bobbles and gorgeous gemstones.

There are a million reasons I love Kendra Scott not only does she make fantastical jewels that are affordable, unique and packed with personality but her company also runs on three core values: Family, Fashion and Philanthropy. With a company mantra of “What Matters to You, Matters to Us”, an emphasis on giving back (they work closely with local charities) and statement jewelry that will make you weak in the knees what isn’t there to love about Kendra Scott!

At Kendra Scott there is a party going on every day with cupcakes and champagne!

The fun is centered around the Color Bar where you can customize and design your own jewelry!  It’s totally bespoke!

You start by selecting the STYLE -necklace, earrings, bangle or rings and the METAL (choose from rose gold, rhodium, gold or gunmetal).

and then the COLOR- pick your gemstones.  They have everything from sparkly to slick edgy to girly

They build it right there while you wait!  Just sip on your champagne and watch the magic happen.  I designed a take-your-breath-away Rhodium ring with a sparkly black gemstone and found the necklace of my dreams (which you saw in my last OOTD).

Of course the fun doesn’t stop there.  The boutique is full of fabulous finds from jewels to her home collection and I even spied some eye catching cufflinks for the guy in your life.  Take a peek below at some of the pieces I’m adding to my wish list this season.  These are sure to make your loved ones spirits bright this season!

Insider Tip:  Kendra Scott offers Color Bar Parties free of charge. The Kendra Scott folks will provide sips, sweets and give all of your guests 15% off their purchase!  Super fun for a girl’s night, birthday or just a tuesday (lol) all they have to pay for is the piece they design.

Tiffany & Co. HardWear Collection

Tiffany & Co. HardWear Collection

Over the past month I have been hard at work on Fall Fashion shoots for magazines where I have been fortunate enough to get an up close and personal test drive of Tiffany & Co.’s latest Collection HardWear.

I have fallen so in love with this collection that I HAD to share it with you.

“The HardWear Collection embodies the power and spirit of New York City and the energy of its streets. The collection name and designs draw inspiration from the urban soul of the city, where the modern rebel mixes high fashion with street style. Tiffany HardWear is as classic as it is edgy. Inspired by a unisex bracelet from 1971, the collection has been reimagined to include earrings, rings, necklaces and pendants, and goes perfectly with a leather jacket as it does with couture. The metal-intensive designs capture the industrialism of the city. The signature gauge links at the heart of this graphic collection reflect the clean, simple shapes of utilitarian hardware. A chain necklace in 18k gold features graduated links that shift in scale, with a clasp that seamlessly disappears into the piece. A reinterpretation of the original design is embellished with a detachable lock and ball for versatile styling. The unique bolt backing on a pair of triple drop earrings makes for a perfectly symmetrical design, as striking from the back as it is from the front.”

These pieces are destined to be classics.  Modern and gorgeous but with a retro sensibility they pair to perfection with any style of look.

Capturing a refined edge and rebellious spirit the pieces feature chain links, padlocks and tiny wrecking balls in silver, rose gold and yellow gold.

What I really love is how light the pieces feel while you are wearing them- never weighing you down and they stack like a dream!  Fiercely feminine yet with movement that is fabulously fluid they feature hidden clasps which enable the pieces to look as gorgeous from the back as they do from the front!

Tiffany and Co. chose Lady Gaga to be the face of the campaign for the new collection.  The print ads and short film styled by none other than Grace Coddington,  feature a Grace Kelly-esc Lady Gaga wearing the HardWear collection. “I love Tiffany HardWear because it’s different and elegant — but it’s not what you would expect of elegance. That’s like me I think — I’m a bit different,” said Lady Gaga in an official statement. “To me, Tiffany is definitive and iconic, yet continues to push and evolve with the times.”
