JIOIA Jewelry + Arm Party

I attended a trunk show last week for a jewelry line called JIOIA, designed and produced by Jessica (soon to be Mrs. Arango, congratulations!).  She's an ambitious architect
by day and jewelry designer by day, night, and everywhere in between.  She began by taking classes here and there, on how to physically make the pieces, and away she went.  Most of what she makes is hand made & completely gorgeous.  I enjoyed the intimate setting of the show, with low lighting, candles, and lots of delicious snacks.  If you're interested in anything that I feature in this post, please let me know so that I can pass the word along, or you can just e-mail Jessica by clicking here to order a piece.  

Jessica is giving 10% off to readers of TFE!

OOTD: Vintage Vuitton + New Vuitton

This vintage Louis Vuitton is an adorable shaped bag.  This crescent moon bag is chic and can be worn in a cross-body style.

This is my Louis Vuitton Jasmine bag.  I've mentioned before, my love of LV Epi leather.  My Jasmine bag is a few years old already; LV has updated this style by tweaking the hardware and the shape (slightly) but they still make it.  They do not, however, make it in this beautiful blue color.
I've always loved the color of this bag!

Designer Spotlight: Milly Love

I'd have to say that next to jeans, dresses are the single most popular item in my closet.  I love Milly dresses because they're really well tailored and structured.  They all have a very feminine, lady-like design to them.  I guarantee you, try any one of these on and you'll feel like a million bucks.  And you'll only have to spend about $350 to achieve that million. Ha. 

2. Justene Dress (older dress, so harder to find, but so gorgeous).
4. Ruffle Back Lace Dress (Check out the back on this one!)
6. Crocodile Effect Silk Halter Neck Gown (Look at the back on this one also, dying!)

Girls, I'm trying the collage thing for the first time - Let me know what you think? Are these kinds of posts boring because you see them on a lot of fashion blogs, or do you like them because they expose you to all kinds of new merchandise? As if you needed more shopping temptation!

JIOIA Jewelry

Get excited - I'm was invited to a trunk show for JIOIA Jewelry next week.  JIOIA is an emerging jewelry and handbag/clutch line based out of Miami.  There are some really phenomenal pieces with bright stones; how cute are the bezel cut teardrop earrings?  I think that they're good pieces that transition from the office to after work drinks.  Below are some teaser photos.

Which one of these pieces is your favorite? Let me know! 

Also, if anyone in the Miami area is interested in attending the show, e-mail me.

Review: Gap Bow City Flats

I recently got back from a vacation where I walked/hiked/trekked/whined my way through many city streets.  In this post I detailed how I had wanted a comfortable, chic flat for my trip.  I bought these Gap Bow City Flats after reading the reviews on Gap.com.  The reviews said to size up between 1/2 a size and a full shoe size.  I sized up 1/2 a shoe size and I should have gone with one full shoe size.  They retail for about $40, but you'll always find a sale on Gap.com

Giveaway Winner: Stella & Dot Bardot Bangle!

Congrats, Danielle!

Danielle is a new TFE reader and I'm very glad to have her.  She runs a blog called Love & Look Pretty.  She has really good luck because this isn't the first giveaway she's won! (I've never won anything except a cruise when I was in the 6th grade when my best friend and I went to eat at a hole in the wall Chinese restaurant; I dropped my name on a slip of paper in a glass bowl and won.  My parents did not let me go. I was 12.  Now I'm much older and fashionable. Is this post about me? NO. Congratulations, Danielle!  As always, a big thank you to Tracy of Stella & Dot.
