I love, need, and yearn for the icing on the cake we ladies call accessories. That final touch that helps us say - "I am ready to be fabulous today!" I have spent at least half my pay-checks for as long as I can remember on these trinkets and baubles we decorate ourselves with. I was, keyword WAS, a huge shopper of Charming Charlie's, Sam Moon, and any other super cheap, discount jewelry store I came across that would swipe my plastic. But over the past few months, I started to realize that all of the jewelry I was buying would either break right away or I might only get two or three wears out of each piece. I was so frustrated that I vowed to myself that I would learn how to make jewelry. What if I could custom design each piece for my wardrobe needs?! Well, I absolutely fell in love with jewelry making. It feels like a modern-day throwback to knitting which somehow comforts me as I make knot after painstaking knot between each pearl (sometimes there are hundreds!) So, after much vigorous work in my woman cave with the company of many of my fav Sex and The City episodes, I began to create my very own collection! I am now thrilled to introduce Lipstick Couture!! This is a preview (a teaser if you will) of what is to come! I anticipate launching the Etsy online shop on August 23rd so don't worry, it won't be long.
