Smarty Fall Fashion Giveaway Week continues!! This is hands down my FAVORITE part of fall in Smartyland, and I am so excited to introduce you to today’s double giveaway: HOLST+LEE. For months now we’ve been obsessing over this amazing line of jewelry – it’s beautiful, unique, AND connects right back here to the QC.
Co-founder-and-co-designer Natalie Holst is a Charlotte native (SO proud of her!). She and her partner, Rochelle Lee, met while working in the hub of New York’s nightlife (so, basically the opposite of my life), where night-after-night they witnessed the best in outrageous cutting-edge fashion and trend. They quickly discovered they shared a creative passion for art, texture and design and recognized a vacancy in the jewelry market for innovative pieces for true individuals. HOLST+LEE was born and quickly caught on in a big way. Here are Natalie (R) and Rochelle (L):
One lucky reader will win this HOLST+LEE necklace (valued at $175):
The best part of HOLST+LEE is that it’s cutting-edge but carpool-friendly. The minute you put on a piece of their jewelry, you instantly feel put together. No kidding – just wearing jeans and a t-shirt with a HOLST+LEE necklace, bracelet, or earrings will make you feel glam. Last week I wore it with leggings, an Old Navy long sleeve tee and a vest, and I felt like a million bucks. Dress it up or down – it just works. I guarantee you it will be THE show-stopping piece in your wardrobe. Here’s me and Jen sporting the classic necklace – me in gold, Jen in black. LOVE. I’ve worn it almost everyday for a week.
Each piece is handcrafted in the USA using a fresh combination of rope, string, brass findings and their signature magnetic clasp (LOVE that clasp!).
Natalie and Rochelle have already made quite a impression in the fashion industry – there is picture after picture of celebs wearing their amazing pieces – I’ve included a few here.
Where can I find HOLST+LEE locally?
