Caressing my Objet D' Envy jewelry box, I can already visualize how my friend would react as she lifts up the lid and discovers the charming eggplant shape crystal dangling from a silver chain that looks like a strand of DNA. Her eyes would become upturned half moons and her smile would be as sunny as a Chicago Summer day. I couldn't wait to present it to her and I had Kirsten Goede, the designer of Objet D' Envy to thank her for my stunning gift.
Presents and Cocktails go so well together!
The sweet designer equally appreciates her clients for their support of her work and threw a customer appreciation event at the posh Province Restaurant on Wednesday evening as a token of her gratitude. Shoppers enjoyed tasty appetizers while browsing for their next sparkly acquisition.
I already had my eye on the whole row of Ligne necklaces and seriously wanted to incorporate them in every summer outfit I own! You can layer them up with multiple colors or wear just one simple strand for just a touch of glamour. The whole line has the same versatile nature and makes it easy for you to fall in love with any piece, whether it be the the sharp Rock Candy collection or the romantic Entrelace collection. All were wonderful steals for 20 to 50 percent off at the event!
Lovely aren't they?
I felt like everyone left that evening with something that would turn their friends and acquaintances green with jealousy! Kristen did an exquisite job planning this party and I think everybody thoroughly enjoyed all the great pieces and shopping with each other. As for me, I couldn't wait to present my friend her gift this weekend and turn her into a person d' envy!
