I would. I would like that very much. As if we weren’t excited enough about Stephanie Anne’s trunk shows, now we’re aware that Monique Pean will make an appearance at Stanley Korshak this weekend to promote her eco-friendly line of fossilized animal jewelry. How cool is that? It doesn’t come cheap–bangles will cost you anywhere from $900 to $4,000 with conflict-free diamond details)–but you can’t put a price on accessorizing with extremely old history. If you’re not into mammoth, you can get your hands on fossilized buffalo, walrus, and more. Don’t worry; the animals were already long gone before they were bedazzled for your ears and wrists. Find the designer and the designs at the shop on Friday, April 29, and Saturday, April 30.
We’re saturated with Stephanie Anne appearances and trunk shows in honor of her first jewelry line launch right now, and we’re thrilled about it. The designer has made it big, selling her wares all over the country, but we’re getting a little personal TLC from her over the next few days. The jewelry collection is called “A Colorful World,” and she describes it as “Queen Elizabeth meets Chanel.” (How sexy is that?) Don’t be jealous, but Kristin and I are heading to a private viewing of the goods at lunchtime. You’re invited, however, this evening for an open house with the designer herself from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at the flagship store in Highland Park Village. If you’re schedule’s full tonight, don’t worry. More trunk shows and personal appearances are available.
-Tomorrow, April 28, from 11 am to 6 pm at Neiman Marcus Willow Bend. Get more info.
-Friday, April 29, from noon to 4 pm at Stephanie Anne in Highland Park Village. Get more info.
-Friday, May 6-7, from 10 am to 6 pm at the Downtown Neiman Marcus. Get more info.
We promise we’ll come baring baring photos of the gems post-lunch.
Update: The shop will be “just around the corner” from the apparel shop. Apparently, the small selection of Calypso St. Barth home items carried in the clothing store sold out so often they decided to open a new shop devoted solely to nesting. The store will carry “the exclusive line of Maison de Vacances bedding, Heidi Merrick textiles, custom upholstered furniture and signature poufs and rugs.” Sounds like a party to us.
