As a kick-off to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I attended a jewelry launch in the West Village. The Pop-Up style launch was hosted by Capwell + Co to introduce its partnership with founder of Simply Stylist, Sarah Boyd. Among the attendees were approximately 150-200 top tier fashion and accessories editors, bloggers and social guests.
The launch event showcased collections from both Capwell + Co and the trendy five piece capsule collection from Sarah Boyd. Each item in Sarah’s collection are what I consider to be “statement” pieces – and we all know that I love a good statement piece! See below:
I had my eye on this ring all night so I had to make the purchase:
