This weekend, my sister and I were excited to attend Unique LA the largest “buy local” shopping event in the country. I’m a big fan of made in America goods and I love to support entrepreneurs and small businesses.
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.
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.
Tonight, I had the pleasure of attending an uber-classy event at Tiffany and Co in Beverly Hills featuring my friend, Aimee Song, of the Song of Style blog. She is currently traveling the country, helping to promote the Tiffany Atlas Jewelry Collection and this was her west coast stop. Here is a photo recap of the evening:
This morning, I attended the beautiful bridal shower for my friend, Jenny Feng, who is about to marry the love of her life, Alex Chesler. The event took place at Fig and Olive in West Hollywood. Here’s a photo recap:
