One lucky smarty will win the beautiful Sailboat Bracelet, valued at $105.
Team CSP adores HOLST+LEE. We love how beautiful and unique each piece is and you’ll be happy to know they are connected 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, 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.
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. Each piece is handcrafted in the USA using a fresh combination of rope, string, brass findings and their signature magnetic clasp.

Smarties, we can’t even begin to put into words our obsession with Allegra & Luca. I wore it all last summer, the summer before and I plan on wearing it again this summer. It is my no-pressure dress. I throw it on, put my hair in a bun, grab a pair of cute sandals and I am ready to go! Everywhere I go, people stop me and comment on it’s amazing colors and design. I call it my HAPPY dress!
Allegra & Luca’s dresses & blouses are a Traditional Mexican design with bright and cheerful embroidery. Each is fully hand embroidered in the Mayan Communities of Mexico. They are 100% cotton. Each piece is handmade, so, colors and embroidery may vary slightly.

Bourbon & Boweties | Signature Springtime Bracelet Stack
Winner Allison M.
One lucky Smarty will win a signature Bracelet Stack, valued at $100+.
In Smartyland, we are obsessed with stacking bracelets. And lots of them. Smarty Jen P. introduced me to my latest faves, Bourbon & Boweties bracelets. She surprised me with wire wrapped stone bangle for my birthday and it hands down has been my favorite gift of the year! I fell hard in love and started my collection.
Bourbon & Boweties bracelets are meant to be worn up your arm and stacked with many different colors and stones. You can never have too many. It is all about the stack. Here’s how the genius of Bourbon & Boweties got started.
Straight from the South, designer and owner Carley Ochs started making bangles for friends and family after she discovered a market of fabulous gems and stones while she was abroad in Shanghai. Her design was to hand make souvenirs for her friends from the jade she stumbled upon while in China. From which, the first Bourbon and Boweties bangle was born. Unbeknown to Carley, that minute gesture of friendship bowed into a whirlwind of success and humility. Praised for her craftsmanship, Carley took her first batch of freshly made bangles to the heart of the South in a high end South Carolina boutique. That day in Charleston Bourbon and Boweties made its mark and continued to grow as a jewelry line that will forever be “Made by Proud Southern Hands.”
