How gorgeous is this wreath that my sweet friend, Nicole Burke, of Rooted Garden made? I’m absolutely in love with it! The eucalyptus, the dried oranges. It’s simple and lovely and the best part is that she says it preserves beautifully, so it can be used for a long time to come!
Nicole is the powerhouse woman and mother of four who has helped me grow actual vegetables in my backyard that I actually eat. It’s amazing! (Get the full scoop on my blog post here.) And now, she’s branched out (see what I did there?) into wreath-making. And she’s offering her first class on it next Thursday evening from 6.30 to 8pm at El Paso Imports in Rice Village here in Houston. We’ll enjoy garden-inspired food and drinks and have some wonderful girl time laughing together. AND, we get to bring home the beautiful wreath above that we’re going to learn to make. How fun is that?
I would LOVE for you to join me at the class. For more information, check out the flier below and to register, visit the website here.
It’s that time of year again! This year marks the third annual The Sale Houston event, which proudly features the finest area boutiques offering end of season merchandise at dramatically reduced pricing in one location. And, trust me, this is one shopping event you do NOT want to miss!
I’ll be there with jewelry items at 50% off again this year. If you know my brand well, you know that I don’t often have sales. The real reason for that is that I’m a small business and I produce limited quantities of my designs by hand, so I’m honestly not left with huge amounts of inventory to get rid of. The Sale, however, is one of those sales, so if you’ve been wanting some of my pieces, but were waiting for a good deal – this is it!
Not only do I love selling at this show (because everyone is so nice and scoring good deals puts everyone in a great mood!) but I love buying for myself at this show! The event takes place at the Bayou City Event Center, which is a really wonderful spot. It’s very nice, super clean, has free parking and is big enough to hold 50 boutiques, but not so huge that its overwhelming. In past years, I’ve scored $200 Elaine Turner clutches for $10, gorgeous scarves from A Bientot for $8, shoes and clothes from Monkees and Tootsies for 50% or more off, a gorgeous tote from A Bientot for 50% off, a fur stole from Cheeky Vintage at a steal, a Louis Vuitton speedy purse from Cheeky Vintage for under $200 and so much more! (For a full list of this year’s participating boutiques, click here.
The first year that I participated as a vendor at The Sale was the very first year they had it and I sold out of 2/3 of my merchandise within the first two hours. These ladies come ready to shop! And there are amazing deals to be had ALL weekend long. So, make plans to grab a friend and cure those post-holiday blues with some fun shopping with amazing deals that benefit a wonderful cause.
I recently purchased the Saltare flats in the versatile Luggage color (above) and I have to say that I love them! I have purchased several pair of M.Gemi shoes over the past year and a half since I found out about them and I’ve yet to be disappointed. And, in good news for you, my flats above and loads of other styles, from flats to over-the-knee boots (and plenty for men as well) are on sale as of today!
Their sales only happen twice a year and all of the shoes they produce at M.Gemi are small batch production and limited edition, so don’t hesitate. Hop on over there today and check out all of the fabulous shoes on sale!
We are thrilled to be included on the Shop Local Gift Guide published over at the always-adorable The Cuteness Blog. Pop on over there for the details on all of the great gift ideas below and be sure to check out what item made item number 1 on her list! Poke around her blog a bit and be sure to follow her on Instagram as well. Her little girls are absolute cherubs!
Shopping local really is so important in our current economic landscape and I’m always so thrilled to be a part of the movement towards shopping small. Thanks, Esther, for including my jewelry!

A few months ago, fabulous wardrobe stylist in the NYC area named Krissi Farrimond contacted me about using some of my bridal designs for a wedding photo shoot. Those designs were featured this month on Trendy Bride – how fun is that!? Below are some of the photos, which were taken by the talented Sheradee Hurst Photography, that feature my designs. To see the complete NYC Rooftop styled shoot (which you do NOT want to miss…stunning!) check out the full feature here.
