If you watched season 1 of Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas, you probably noticed that I am no stranger to jewelry. I ADORE IT. I OBSESS OVER IT. There is no such thing as too many bangles. A statement necklace is always a “need” purchase. And my arm never has to be twisted when it comes to colored stones.
So imagine my excitement, surprise, and joy (and any other adjective you can think of) when I found out that one of my favorite jewelry designers, Kendra Scott, was slated to open her third retail boutique in one of Dallas’ premier shopping centers, West Village. Previously, I had to purchase my KS items at Neiman Marcus, Zappos, or Endless, but now I would have the luxury to scoot over there any day of the week to pick up a new “OMG WOW, WHERE’D YOU GET THAT?!” bauble. And oh, have I ever.
For a gal who got her start in 2002 with $500 extra bucks making jewelry in the spare bedroom of her house, Ms. Scott has undoubetedly become a household fashion name amongst women across the world. Not only is she a regular on The Rachael Ray Show and CNBC, but her jewels have even been worn by celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Sophia Vergara, and Hilary Duff. Her pieces can strike a cord with any age, demographic, or taste level, and Kendra hits the mark when it comes to my jewelry non-negotiables…statement necklace, pop of color, “hair goes up” to show these off, va-va-voom, or shiny metals.
Here’s the scoop on my personal Kendra Scott collection:
- Harlow Necklace (statement necklace)
- Danielle Earrings in Green Agate (“hair goes up” to show these off)
- Tela Ring in Turquoise (pop of color)
- Eva Earrings (shiny metals)
And here’s my never ending Kendra Scott wishlist:
- Zoe Earrings (va-va-voom, pop of color, and “hair goes up” to show these off)
- Vaire Ring (pop of color)
- Golden Circle Cuff (shiny metals)
- Hammered Golden Bangle Set (shiny metals)
