Back in June of last year, I had attended The Set NYC – Fashion Night Out! event for the first time and really enjoyed capturing the “style from the aisles” as noted in this blog post. This past September I had the pleasure of attending again. This was one of the events that I was looking forward to the most, as it encompassed fashion, food, drinks and shopping. The Set NYC charity and fashion event also tends to showcase up and coming designers as well as other fashion creatives. This time I focused more on getting to know the designers that were showcasing there work on the outskirts of the runway. The first highlighted designer that caught my eye had models standing on a platform showcasing very exquisite and unique jewelry pieces, which truly looked like works of art!
As I approached the models to get a better look and to take a few pictures, I noticed that the designer seemed to be standing close by. I introduced myself and told her how amazing her collection of work was, as we chatted she seemed so humble and excited to be showing off her work. I had to stay in contact with her as I knew she would be up to great things and I wanted a front row seat to her journey. As usual with all my interviews, I thought it would be great to share with you the person behind this amazing work. Read on and get to know how broken jewelry made her who she is today, why Taylor Swift is her style crush and where in the world you will be able to shop Aisa Marie Corrales Designs soon!

Featured Post – Summer Gems Jewelry: The Colors Of Summer In Full Swing!

What would summer be without the ability to show some skin and go even further and decorate that skin on show with some fabulous accessories! Beach ready doesn’t need to mean sans jewelry either. Summer is a time when we can flaunt our natural colors and enhance our glow with complimentary colors, wherever the summer takes us.

I absolutely love mirroring the natural hues of the season in the jewelry that I wear. Think Tequila sunrises & the Caribbean like this floral bangle from Antik Batik! When wearing busy florals, be sure to choose an outfit that has solid colors and let the bangle be the focal point of pattern & color.

Styled by Vitamin F – Unique Bridal Looks!

Styled by vitamin f
Even though the summertime is known to be the most popular season for wedding ceremonies, we all know that there is no true time frame for when weddings must happen. I actually have attended more Fall weddings, than the supposedly more common June weddings. By now most future brides are trying to find the perfect venue, cakes, menu, etc. to prepare for this one big day. I have 4 friends that are getting married between July and October, and I thought it would be fun to create very unique and non-traditional looks for their weddings.

For these looks I have combined affordable pieces with more expensive pieces. Since I believe she designs very lovely, unique and creative designer and better priced wedding gowns, I decided to give all of the “brides” Vera Wang dresses/gowns. The accessories that I have chosen are also for a bride who is not afraid to wear non-traditional shoes, jewelry or hairpieces. For shoes, all of the styles are from Asos.com. For jewelry, all of the styles are from Shopdoseofvitaminf.com (of course, lol). Lastly, I decided to highlight and feature bridal headpieces from thefeatheredhead.com to make the looks complete.

Earlier this week I received a small package from Orphelia Ltd., and I was full of excitement to see what was inside! I opened the package and found a lovely black and gold satin drawstring bag containing an amazingly beautiful piece of jewelry.

 A close up… Gorgeous, Right?

This cuff style bracelet is part of the Orphelia collection from South Africa, and comes with a tag attached that states it is “Original handcrafted jewellery, Made in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa”. The colorful shell set into the Gold bracelet is a Paua Shell from the Abalone species that is found in the shallow waters surrounding New Zealand.
