So. Much. Fun. As you know, we were invited to participate in Culture Map’s very first Holiday Pop-Up Shopping Event on December 7th. Culture Map is known for their flawless taste and elegant events and this one combined both. We were over the moon when they called us up and let us know that we had been hand-selected out of all of the Houston-area designers – what an honor! We worked hard to put together the best curated collection for your holiday shopping needs and we had so much fun meeting all of you who attended. It was an incredibly successful event and we are so grateful for the support of our loyal customers like you! We were too busy writing up tickets to take very many photos, but here are a few we did take. . .
We are SO excited to have been invited to be a featured designer at the first-ever Culture Map Holiday Pop Up Shop! Culture has included 25 invite-only designers to show their goodies at the event and help make your holiday shopping season effortless and fun. With music, festive food, cocktails, a man cave to entertain your guy while you shop, free gift wrap and tons of great vendors to shop, your gift-giving tasks just got WAY more fun! (I mean, who doesn’t like shopping with a free cocktail in hand – way more fun!)
Houston-based stylist Natalie Weakly knows trends. In fact, she makes it her business to know them. And even better, to help you know them – and how they best work for you. You may remember her from our “Friend Friday” post about her. Natalie loves clothes and jewelry (especially ours – she’s got great taste, right?) but what she’s passionate about is helping you find the clothes and jewelry that work for your look and lifestyle. A self-proclaimed “color obsessed” gal, she has expert opinions on what colors look great – from your closet to your logo to your living room walls.
We spotted a few Andrea Montgomery Designs pieces on Great Day Houston the other day! Houston stylist Natalie Weakly of Signature Style was wearing them on her “Scarf-tastic” feature on the show. We all know how much I love winter’s best accessory, and Natalie had some great ideas on tying scarves and on using them as outfit accessories. While telling the Houston audience all of her tips and tricks on scarves, Natalie was wearing our matte gold vermeil large link bracelet AND our brushed gold vermeil peony necklace. (more…)
The Houston Chronicle ran a feature on our 2011 Pink Ribbon Necklace on the front page of the Living Section today! We are so honored to be included among the designers listed as a place to “buy carefully to maximize donations to cancer research.” Thanks for the mention and the great article, Joy!

Our 2011 Pink Ribbon Necklace was featured today online at the Houston Chronicle’s website here. The article focused on “pink” items that really do make an impact. It cited a recent Marie Claire article about the trend among retailers in selling breast cancer awareness items and encouraged readers to buy from designers who disclose the amount of the proceeds that actually go to the charity. We are honored to have been included among the designers they recommend for people who want to “Think pink, but buy smart.” And we’re the very first item in the slideshow – so fun!
InStyle featured our 2011 Pink Ribbon Necklace on their “Stars Help Fight Breast Cancer: Fabulous Fashion Finds” article on their website as one of the pieces that help raise money for breast cancer that stars love! We are honored to be listed and to be helping in the fight against breast cancer. Check out the article online here. There are so many cute things listed! What are your favorite items featured in this article?
Prime Living included our 2011 Pink Ribbon Necklace in their Pay it (Fashion) Forward article! We are honored to be listed among the Houston designers who are supporting National Breast Cancer Awareness month with our designs. Our limited edition necklace is featured in the article below along with a super cute pink satin clutch from Mary Nichols and an adorable ice pink button down from Claridge + King. We think all three go together just great! Our necklace can be found on our website here and 100% of the proceeds go toward the Pink Ribbons Project. Learn more about our design here. (more…)
I was invited to do an interview on Austin’s KEYE news just after I touched down on my whirlwind Austin trip and had such a great time chatting with Jason Wheeler there. He did a segment on Andrea Montgomery Designs since we’ll be presenting at Austin Fashion Week tonight. The entire team at KEYE was so nice and they made it such a fun experience! (And of course the ladies there wanted to shop the jewelry afterwards, which is always fun.) It was my first time on live television and it was an absolute blast. Check out the video here or by clicking on the image above. Time to go setup for tonight’s event!
