ETSY’S HOLIDAY PRESS PREVIEW 2014 #ETSYHOLIDAY

5 Aug

I was invited to Etsy’s Holiday Press Preview 2014 to check out fashion accessories, home and entertaining gift items from Etsy’s top vendors.

The first vendor I met was Chilean jewelry designer Soledad Proano. She launched “Sol del Sur” her metals and textiles jewelry and accessories company. Sol obtained a certificate in metalsmithing and took other design and art courses at Pasadena City College in California, before moving to Brooklyn, NY in the Summer of 2013. All her jewelry is made by hand in her light-filled studio in Bushwick. Sol del Sur jewelry is available locally at independent and museum shops in the US, as well as worldwide through soldelsurshop.com and more recently, at Anthropologie.com
Take a look at her beautiful pieces below. Guests were given samples of her bracelets and earrings.

The next vendor was Dominique Caron with her skincare line “Caru Skincare Co.” which crafts gentle and effective products from high quality botanical ingredients that are carefully selected for their potency and sustainability. Frustrated by the poor selection of skincare products on the market Dominique Caron took matters into her own hands and started making her own. The scents are amazing. Guests were given samples of her soap to take home. I picked peppermint and the chamomile and honey soaps. Take a look at her products.

The third vendor was Amanda Schwartz, designer of her handbag and accessory line “Two Tickets”. Her passion is to unite form and function, past and present, beauty and durability. She showed us her beautiful collection of color block crossbody bags, clutches, wallet pouch phone cases and fringed key chain tassels. Guests were given a key chain tassel to choose from a variety of colors. Take a look at her bags and accessories below.

Everything was beautiful at the preview. I love decorating and the home decor had amazing pieces. I also loved the entertaining section. If I could put my wish list out now I would ask for everything. Here are a few pictures that I took of my favorite things.

My favorite in this look book is The Passenger. Yellows were my favorite color this season and these accessories is on my must have list. I also had to throw in the cute tote bag.
