We love seeing hard work rewarded, and our friend and customer Tara Wilson enjoyed some much-deserved recognition with a special entertaining segment on the Today Show last week!
She has a fantastically successful and fun company called Tara Wilson Events based in Texas, and she plans everything from corporate soirees to weddings and dinner parties. (Once we have a free weekend, we'll certainly tap her talent and skills for a fun backyard barbecue in the countryside...or even some fresh ideas for a certain toddler's upcoming birthday...)
In the meantime, we can all see her tips on throwing an end-of-summer bash (and the Elva Fields necklace she sported on set!) here...congrats to Tara and a job well done!
Yes, Kentucky has a sophisticated side (first-time visitors to our neck of the woods are often surprised by this!) and we love the coverage of Louisville and Lexington's finest in Sophisticated Living magazine. Nothing is more beautifully Bluegrass than our equestrian industry, and the September-October issue of SL shows Kentucky fashion in just the right horse-country setting...and just in time for the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Lexington starting in a few weeks.
Check out the gorgeous landscapes (and the beautiful jewels, if we do say so ourselves) in the fashion spreads shot in the beautiful Kentucky countryside...all of the best the Bluegrass has to offer. (Not forgetting, of course, to add in some bourbon and a bit of banjo for authentic Kentucky ambiance!)
FALL COLLECTION 2010: A LOOK BOOK
Snapshots from our latest assortment of necklaces and earrings...enjoy sneak peeks of the jewels, our countryside photo shoot, and fresh ideas for the most fun ways to wear it all this season.
Polished nuggets of olive green jade (especially with the addition of smoky rhinestone gems) would bring a sense of stylish color to a dotted ruffle-sleeved Karen Walker dress...
And we love the idea of playing up the zesty hue of this gorgeous cashmere sweater from J. Crew with a snazzy, elegant, and playful necklace featuring rhinestone bling and vintage mustard and eggplant beads from Africa.
Oh, how we love this beautifully simple top from Tory Burch...the scalloped hem is reflected subtly in the vintage filigree and rhinestone brooch pendant...not to mention the cream with coral knock-'em-dead combo.
We'd even play up the pink in this plaid blouse from Marc Jacobs with a set of vintage enamel flowers on matte black strands...
Or for a more cocktail look, the subtle shimmer in a metallic-skirted Grecian dress from J. Crew is fabulous with the iridescence of a vintage faux pearl and rhinestone brooch at the side of serpentine strands.
Hit on more than one of our favorite fall trends with an interesting pattern combination and the inclusion of some animal-inspired prints. Deceptively simple and stylish in a leopard top from See by Chloe and a quartet of autumn leaves.
Fall Collection 2010
Select items available now (pre-order our June earrings for delivery the week of September 7th, and enjoy shopping a handful of fall styles from our Elva line and Deb line.) The full collection premieres September 14th...see you then!
Though photographed with a perfect denim ensemble for September's fantastic issue of Redbook magazine, we're sure this necklace would work well with any outfit. (But we must admit, seeing it in the pages of Redbook will be pretty tough to top!) Check out the "Live, Laugh, Love" necklace in our Fall 2010 Collection Preview coming August 31st exclusively on our website. (And in the meantime, check out Redbook magazine online for great insight on beauty, fashion, life, love, career, and health.)
Though not officially the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, we loved that the editors at the magazine selected a pair of Elva Fields earrings for September's Star Style feature! Our golden earrings are such fun to wear, with a dangling trio of vintage brass teardrops on 14 karat gold fill wires. They elongate the face AND add a touch of movement and flash to draw attention to your best features...and pretty much look fantastic with any outfit. For $46, they'll be one of your best fall fashion investments. Thanks to Good Housekeeping for the inclusion...we were bowled over! (And check out the details on the earrings here!)
