Recap: Danielle Nicole at Macy's

Last Monday I, along with a number of other amazing DC Bloggers had the opportunity to sit in with Danelle Nicole at the executive offices of Macy's in Wheaton as she displayed her new Spring/Summer Line. Danielle (a Maryland native by the way) has a truly amazing and inspiring story, which was very motivating to hear being that I am one day hoping to have a line of my own. I'll just keep reading the "about Danielle" section of her press kit for continued inspiration lol. If you are unfamilliar with Danielle, she makes beautiful, fashionable handbags for the "Bargainista." Great quality and at an amazing price point?! I couldn't NOT purchase one. Many thanks to Rose for getting these great shots, I hope you guys enjoy.


But are we being bloggers or what? LOL

Talking to Danielle about her story, and telling her about mine.

I purchased the perfect black everyday bag from the "Peyton" family. Can't wait to start wearing it.

Love from Taryn Reed

Today I'm featuring a lovely necklace I was sent from Atlanta based jewelry designer Taryn Reed. Taryn makes beautiful necklaces, bracelets, and earrings using a number of natural stones, on brass, gold, and silver chains. Me being the fan that I am of natural elements, I chose the Turquoise Howlite & Gold Necklace. Taryn's jewelry is great quality and beautifully made. I would also love it with a longer chain. I am beyond pleased with this wonderful piece.

You can see more of Taryn's jewelery here. Visit their Facebook page here, and Twitter here. I'm sure you'll fall in love with a piece or two.

Prabal Gurung for Target

I'm sure you guys have seen the ads for the Prabal Gurung collab with Target. (Which is only 4 days away now!) Are you excited?? I am, I love the designers use of color and digital prints. I get feminine with edge from all of his collections, and now his pieces are finally affordable enough for me cop a piece or two. Ranging from $14.99-$199.99, these are my favorite looks from the collection.

This piece is on my list, MUST HAVE

Can't forget about the accessories
