check out gokateshoot's recap of the night, because dear lord knows i am no photographer.
you are coming, right?
you best be.
going to be a fun night!
i am doing everyone a favor by recommending this little gem to you. if you have not already heard of her, please acquaint yourself with grace woodroofe.
i had the pleasure of meeting grace a few months ago in dc; she's such a babe, and a sweetheart as well.
grace's record, always want, is available today in the u.s. buy it on itunes. doitdoitdoit!
i am not a music critic nor do i moonlight as one, so read the new york times review for always want here.
get at her on facebook, too.
yesterday, nana boutique posted 'top 5 reasons that we <3 aliceanna' on their blog; i have to admit my cheeks are still burning from it.
jackie & her staff are amazing. it is evident they are passionate about fashion and they do a great job at promoting local talent, which i am grateful for.
thanks again to jackie, daisy, and the rest of the ladies at nana.
i think it's awesome when you stumble upon a young, new designer.
that being said, i think it is super awesome when said designer is a colleague of yours.
i was introduced to le mos awhile back by my friend, dusty. he and i attended college with the talented jessica brasfield, designer of le mos jewelry.
jessica designs truly bad-ass jewelry; striking statement pieces that stand out on their own, as well as pieces that are great for layering up. there is whole lotta 90s fem rock influence going on.
so when i was on the hunt for the perfect gold pinky ring (the italian in me talkin'), my search stopped at le mos. i really love my epic pinky ring (worn in above photo). it can also be worn above the top knuckle, layered with another ring.
next piece that i'm eyeing up is the billie choker, in gold, of course.
aliceanna will be having pop-up shop at the end of this month through the end of february. the pop-up shop will be poppin' off in 3 cities and will feature samples from the spring '12 collection as well as some warm winter pieces.
