Fashion Friday: 1 Dress, 3 Looks

Being able to take one garment and style it multiple ways is an important fashion skill. Whether you're on a limited budget, on vacation with little suitcase room, or just working with what you've already got in your closet, versatile core pieces are a must! For this Fashion Friday, we thought it'd be fun to demonstrate how to take one dress and one pair of earrings and create three distinct looks. Our foundation piece is a tangerine shift dress paired with our River Rocks earrings.    
Look 1: 
We decided to pair the vibrant frock with patterned tennies, a day tote and baseball cap. This outfit creates a casual look, perfect for grocery shopping or running errands with the kiddos.   
a. Twill Baseball Cap by J.Crew
b. Floral Keds by Taylor Swift for Keds 
c. Stripe Canvas Tote by Henri Bendel

Look 2: 
This look is a bit more polished with the addition of a petite scarf, cross body leather purse and jeweled flats. We'd wear this outfit to lunch with the girlfriends or even a casual date night. 
d. Handkerchief Scarf by The Elder Statesman 
e. Rhinestone Embellished Sandal by Calypso St. Barth
f. Tan Messenger Bag by Tory Burch

Look 3: 
Our third look is ideal for a fancy dinner or cocktail event. The classic dress is easily glammed up with a sequin clutch, leopard pumps, and shimmery hair piece. 
g. Bow Claw by Henri Bendel
h. Leopard Print Stiletto Heel by Kurt Geiger
i. Confetti Clutch Bag by Edie Parker Jean

Fashion Friday: Farmer's Market

Open Air Markets may be one of our favorite things about summer. What's not to love about shopping local for fresh produce and cheese, baked goods, and other treats in gorgeous weather?

Farmer's Markets are definitely all about casual comfort and laid back style - our favorite kind of outfit to wear! Here is a sweet ensemble that merges of-the-moment boho style and just-rolled-out-of-bed. The white peasant top combined with cutoffs is the classic foundation, the hat adds summery peasant style and metallic accents add effortless glamour.

1. Textured Summer Straw Hat by J.Crew 
2. Dixie Sunglasses by Quay 
3. Downing Tote Metallic Leather by J.Crew 
4. Boyfriend Jean Shorts by Rag & Bone 
5. Hazy Highlands Top by Free People 
6. Embellished Leather Sandals by J.Crew 
7. Stem Earrings by Freshie & Zero

As seen in… Stationery Trends!

Press alert! Our letterpressed earring cards were just featured in the Summer 2014 issue of Stationery Trends magazine. We are so excited for the feature! The headline states "Freshie & Zero makes a great impression with letterpressed earring cards" - why thank you!

You can learn more about Stationery Trends here. It's a trade publication for retailers, but if you're just really into paper products, I recommend subscribing for all the eye candy within its pages!

We're back in Atlanta!

Let's do this!

We are going to take a break from our usual Fashion Friday post just to spread the news to our lovely retailers that we are at the Atlanta Gift Show! It's our 12th (!!) appearance in the AmericasMart temporaries, and we're happy to be back in our usual spot in Boutique. If you are a retailer, we'd love to meet you and tell you about our jewelry. If you are not a retailer but have a favorite shop you think should sell our jewelry, don't be shy - tell them to check us out!

The full name of the show is Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market July 2014 - but that's kind of a mouthful! I will always refer to the show as Atlanta Gift - is that just me?
