Fashion Fights Cancer x IFB

 

Last week I attended an event hosted by Fashion Fights Cancer and IFB.  Fashion bloggers from around the city gathered and designed DIY turbans for cancer awareness. With tons of supplies and endless possibilities, the sky was the limit! It was so much fun designing my first DIY turban and hanging out with the gals, all while supporting a great cause.

Bloggers, Baubles, & Brunch

This past weekend I attended a cozy little blogger brunch hosted by the lovely Staci of Leather & Leops.   We gathered at her SoHo apartment to check out the beautiful collections from the Emily and Ashley jewelry line.  These two sisters started their line 15 years ago, with a statement jewelry line called Greenbeads, of which their first piece was created by coincidence.  They then found inspiration from the vintage pieces in their grandmother's jewelry trunk.  From there they flourished and developed a wide spectrum of designs, ranging from classic to trendy, but all with a vintage feel, including many gorgeous pieces made with precious and semiprecious stones.  In the setting of Staci's perfectly decorated apartment, with champagne cocktails and sparkling pieces, there couldn't have been a better way to spend my Sunday.

These earrings are all interchangeable! So cool.
