With the holidays right around the corner, there’s a reason to be jolly. The luminous Christmas tree taking center stage at your local department store, effervescently lighting your way as you check off your gift list one by one. Christmas carols humming through the hallway as you crank up the oven and turn gingerbread cookies into colorful creations. That merry feeling of spending time with loved ones while counting down the days ’til Christmas is priceless!
Since Christmas is about loving, giving, and sharing, what better way to enwrap myself in the joyous festivity than to attend a pop of sale in support of local Chicago designers! Last Thursday I was invited by the lovely Kristen of K.Amato Jewelry to attend the “Holidays on Huron” pop of sale, a sip & shop private preview event hosted by K.Amato Jewelry, Henry & Belle Denim, and 84Rockwell. The evening was just as I imagined – a delightful array of the designers’ winter collection, Italian rosé at the bar with delicacies from spicy deviled eggs to salmon canapés, and of course, a swoon-worthy group of fashion insiders.
As my friend Nancy a.k.a Fancy Nancista and I strolled through the pop of sale, we were thrilled by K.Amato’s coveted jewelry collections. And how can you not when the tagline for the trend-conscious company is “every girl should have one”, distinctively being the driving force behind her reasonably priced line of earrings, necklaces and accessories! Kristen Amato, a Chicago native, started her jewelry collections in 2002 and a mere decade later they’re selling over 300 stores across the globe from London to Tokyo! Having been featured in Vogue and People, she’s garnered a reputable celebrity following from Rachael Ray to Eva Longoria Parker.
In my outfit today I wore one of her best-sellers – the Reversible Fan Necklace. With an oyster shell on one side and black on the other, this 22K gold plated chain necklace is as divine to the look as it is to the physical touch! Familiar you say? That’s because I gave a sneak preview on my last post, you know, the ombré faux fur jacket with the embellished tuxedo pants!
And if you’re thinking of what to get your stylish friend this season, check out K.Amato’s holiday collection filled with main jewels to delicate layering pieces like this Leather Stud Bracelet I’m wearing! And from now until 12/17 you can use the code holidaycheer for 30% off the entire website! Can’t say you won’t find one for yourself to go with that stunning sequined dress you’re dying to wear to your Christmas soirée 😉
