i, along with the usual bloggers in crime, were very kindly invited by dustin of persona jewelry in boston to an exclusive event on tuesday night. per the facebook invite…
**We are proud to host SoHo designer, Alp from Atelier Minyon as he presents his exquisitely unique, hand-crafted pieces for your viewing pleasure. He has NEVER shown in Boston before, so you have the exclusive opportunity to see these pieces before all your friends.**
it was really a fun night & let me tell you…alp’s pieces were amaaaaazing!!! my favorites were the gem-encrusted skulls. admittedly, they’re not the kind of jewelry that would appeal to everyone, but once again, as you all know, i do likes me some skulls ^_^
anyway, let me back up & start from the beginning. upon first arriving, i was immediately greeted by & felt quite welcome by the creative director, dustin, who’s truly a renaissance man in full name & title. not only did he organize us bloggers to attend, but he made all this gorgeous & delicious food!!! i could NOT stop pigging out!
plus there were plenty of wine & berry champagne cocktails to go around. if you were lucky & stayed around longer in the night, then also tequila shots with the russians…which i did *not* do! (it was a school night after all)…hahaha!
then, of course, the usual blogger hangout partners. the always beautifully blonde, neira, who wore a gorgeous “hippie” style dress of bright blues, turquoise & orange. hmmm…that color combo seems faintly familiar…hahaha! of course, you recognize najeema who frequently makes appearances on ye ol’ blog & whose arm party meticulously matched her flowy blouse. bet you didn’t think i noticed, did’ja? *of course*…i love such outfit details & duly noted it ^_^ i also hung out with marissa & holly but sadly did not get pictures of their outfits which were equally lovely :(
anywho…back to the JEWELRY! if i had ukubillion dollars, these pieces would be on my overly tanned extremities faster than white on rice! the web cuff was actually worn by brooke shields, but that spider & web ring was my absolute favorite! i can’t even call it a ring…it’s more like a finger cuff. look how it goes all the way to my knuckle. LOVES!
finally, on a funny note, if i’m the shortest fashion blogger in boston (i gotta be right?) then of course i’m some day destined to meet the tallest one! it’s just my karma. this is kacy…all 6 foot 4 of her. yup, she’s a full foot and a half taller than me O.O she’s very sweet & personable & we both thought it’d be funny to take a giant woman eating me type of photo. although, i have to wonder…every time i wear this dress, do i always end up making that kinda face? hahaha!
many thanks again to dustin, margarita, gary & the rest of the persona team for a truly lovely evening!!!
