Eden Philippa Jewelry

A little Q&A with super cool jewelry designer Eden Philippa:

Q- How did you get started designing jewelry?
 A- I did a two year goldsmithing program - after the second year I was in love and  completely fascinated! I’ve never once felt like I’ve picked the wrong path.

Q- Where do you get your design inspiration?
A-  I’m somewhat utilitarian when I’m designing.  I want my pieces to be pretty, but at the same time comfortable, easy-to-wear, everyday accessories. 

Q- How did you develop your brand identity is such a large market?
A-  It’s a very long process and doesn’t happen overnight.  All the people I admire in the industry and brands that I love are much older and have been doing it for much longer.  It’s really just about determination and being creative in an over-saturated market.    

Q- Who would your dream girl to wear your jewelry be?
A-  A girl who appreciates jewellery that is made by hand and not just a ‘fast fashion’ accessory quick fix.

Q- How would you like to see your company evolve in the future?
A- It would be nice to be recognized for my style - a girl can dream, right? I’d also really love to be able to do a bridal line and incorporate more gemstones into the pieces.   

Q- If you weren't designing jewelry, what do you imagine your career would be?
A- Oh god, all I know is that it would be a sad existence.

Refinery29 x TJ Maxx

A few months ago Refinery29 contacted us to see if I wanted to come into their NYC office and use pieces supplied by TJ Maxx to help style this shoot based on different scenarios. Refinery29 stylist Willow Lindley and I had so much fun finding some great hidden gems at their stores, including pieces by Mother Denim, Halston, Marc Jacobs, and Torn by Ronny Kobo.
Now they are having a contest to win a $2,500 shopping spree to TJ Maxx- go enter!

Powder Blue

One of my favorite things right now is anything off-the-shoulder. In this case, it makes this otherwise classic blue button down a little more dressed up and unexpected. I kept things casual with faded black denim and sandals, and my trusty little Phillip Lim pouch.

I was so excited about the arrival of my Stone Cold Fox sale score- the bullwhip romper. I have worn it multiple times since receiving it in the mail, and finally was able to shoot this look in it on my way to wine night with the girls last weekend. It is such a perfect summer staple, and so easy to just throw on and go! I can dress it up or down, for night or day, and even plan on wearing it well into fall with jackets, socks, and booties.
