Happy Fashion Week! One of my favorite parts of this style “holiday” is being introduced to new brands and speaking with designers about their passions. At this past Sunday’s #storefrontNYFW event, a pop up shop featuring all sorts of cool brands, I met two amazing accessory gurus. Both presented items handmade with love – you could tell because of the extreme detail. I enjoyed chatting with the adorable Jenn Zalesky of Dueces to Divas, and the striking Marrin Costello. Dueces to Divas is an amazing custom handbag line allowing the customer to design their own. The best part is the purse can be worn several ways (notice Jenn’s video showing five ways). At $45, it’s a true bargain for such a fashion necessity. Notice Jenn’s fab sheath dress! It’s from the online boutique LA_ZAYFAIR. Now, that our arm is decorated let’s take care the rest. Meeting LA-based jewelry designer Marrin Costello was a real treat! I’m telling you Marrin’s styles were killa! She has the perfect collection of gold, silver and other metals for countless “layered” looks or for a barely-there effect. We shot video of her current collection which isn’t out yet (she says, “Soon!”), so look out for her in my upcoming YouTube series on New York Fashion Week. That’s right – I can’t wait to share with you the style show featuring these amazing designers. Have a beautiful HUMP DAY and please watch out for more reports! Bye loves!

Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I’d sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, “I think you need a blog!” LOL! I’ve been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
