This week, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the talented Kasey Blaustein of Kasey Jones Ink. Kasey is an LA-based entrepreneur who owns a one stop shop for branded experiences, custom art and influencer gifting. Her company provides a variety of unique interactive and one-of-a-kind services for events, companies and individuals throughout the country using multiple art mediums (all of which I’m kind of obsessed with!).
I am so excited to announce that the amazing Los Angeles-based jewelry designer, Robyn Rhodes and I are collaborating on a jewelry line that will be hitting the scene this coming holiday season. I’m a big fan of Robyn’s jewelry (I recently posted about that here) because her pieces are all one of a kind, they each tell a story and they are handmade in America.
When it comes to earrings, I am a studs sort of girl all the way. Sure, I occasionally love to wear a dangly pair of earrings here and there but I often opt for earrings I can get away with day after day with any outfit (since I usually forget to take them off before bed). Today, I’m wearing Druzy Stud Earrings by Justine Brooks, a Canadian-based jewelry designer who I just can’t get enough of. Her line is full of raw, natural and precious materials that all add a bit of extra sparkle to any outfit. I paired these earrings with my white tweed jacket, nude pumps and collared shirt and I love that they add a little something extra. They are perfect for the office (where I’m wearing them today), and I look forward to snatching some up some more of these earrings in different colors soon.
I was very humbled when Heather Schultz, the Co-Founder of an amazing jewelry company called Dikokore Designs, reached out to me to collaborate with her on today’s blog post. Heather and her boyfriend, Juan, founded Dikokore Designs– a company that is committed to the financial, educational and social empowerment of women and girls in Dikokore, Benin. Heather was recently stationed in Dikokore with the Peace Corps and she was so inspired by the women there that she decided to create this charitable business to meld her love for fashion with her passion for helping others.
