I can't believe that it's already February and yet another Fashion First is upon us. Seeing that Valentine's Day is right around the corner, we figured we'd celebrate with a jewelry trunk show! And as soon as we decided that, I knew exactly who to bring in- Mary Kelly Stribling of Give a Penny Designs. An old college classmate, Mary Kelly and I reconnected almost 2 years ago thanks to good ol' Facebook, and, as I'm always scouting for new jewelry lines, I noticed that she was posting images of her designs which really caught my eye- the pieces were affordable and gorgeous. So I wrote a small order to test the waters and sure enough, it flew out. People loved it! Not only for the aforementioned facts, but because the philosophy behind her company is based on giving back; for every purchase made at a jewelry show, Mary Kelly gives a portion to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society...and who doesn't love charity?!
At any given time, you'll be able to find at least one of her pieces in our jewelry case, but they don't last long- it seems like I'm always reordering her jewels to keep our case stocked for our customers (and myself- I must admit, I own more than a few pieces from her collection!). And I'm happy to report that she was more than willing to ship her new spring collection up for our Fashion First event this coming Thursday from 12-8. If you want a preview, check out www.giveapennydesigns.com. Hopefully you'll be able to make it out to take a peek and get yourself excited for Spring!
Enjoy the week- I hear it's supposed to be 65 on Wednesday?!

Book your tickets and pack your bags- Spring vacation is on its way! Designer Marysia Dobrzanska Reeves burst onto the scene in 2008 with a mission to create a collection of high end swimwear with impeccable design and a flattering fit. She is Polish-born and attended FDIM in Los Angeles, and in 2009 won the Emerging Designer Competition South East.
Bottom line- these suits are AMAZING! Everything from scalloped, high-waisted bottoms that convert into a low-rise bikini to a sleek, under wire with removable strap one-piece, this collection has a little something for everyone. In Reeve's own words: "The muted colors and small details are ideal for the stylish, vacationing woman who loves understated elegance. The only thing missing is a cocktail and a sunset on a faraway beach."
The collection was cut to order, so sizes are limited, hurry in!
