So, I was lucky enough to attend for the 2nd time the always fun and fashionable Shecky’s Girls Night Out event at the Fashion Industry Gallery in Dallas. It was perfect timing because I seriously needed a study break! There was such a long line outside, but it was well worth the wait. Once inside, I made a bee line to the Goodie Bag area, as Shecky’s is famous for its superb Goodie Bags.
What I love about this event are all the unique treasures you can find at a bargain. I’m talking “Shopping Mecca!” Plus a lot of designers are right here in Dallas and it’s so important to support local talent. One such talent is Ms. Jennifer Blumenstock of three bishops jewelry collection. Featured in Fort Worth Magazine’s August 2009 Issue, and seen on HBO’s popular series Entourage, three bishops offers pieces that are thoughtfully unique and simply stunning. The Signature Collection is at once regal, yet refreshingly unpretentious. The entire line has a deeply spiritual feel to it. See http://www.threebishops.com.
Speaking of spiritual, meet Ms. Jana Camp of Janaration. This “Yoga Inspired Jewelry” is like the California designer- youthful, down-to-earth and naturally beautiful- and I couldn’t leave without snapping up a gorgeous necklace- it was too perfect for Halloween and all the Fall Festivities! Check out Jana’s website at http://www.janaration.com.
If you love more vintage-inspired fair, (think: Anthropologie or Urban Outfitters) check out Sarah Elizabeth Eastep’s http://www.manekicollection.com. She has the most adorable cameo rings and necklaces, and many of the vintage staples of the animal kingdom, such as owls, horses, foxes and birds. Each piece is feminine, delicate and decadent, while being reasonably priced.
Lastly, I saw an incredible chain metal scarf (yes, metal) from Moonpie & Felicity Rose. They are hand-made and come in different lengths, making them versatile and stunning. A little pricier, (I think the shorter versions was around $90) these scarves are wearable works of art and well worth the price tag. For more info, contact Amy Kaplan at MOONPIEFR@AOL.COM.
Shecky’s Girls Night Out will return to Dallas February 24-25, 2010. Hope to see you there!
