Allow me to introduce you to one of my new favorite Texans, Kendra Scott.
She’s an Austin-based jewelry designer + retailer who I’ve recently become obsessed with. Please see how gorgeous her designs are…
She specializes in colorful cuff bracelets, cocktail rings, bib necklaces, chandelier earrings + bridal jewelry.
If Kendra sounds familiar, it’s probably because you’ve seen her stuff featured in InStyle, Lucky, Real Simple, Allure, People, Martha Stewart Weddings or US Weekly – just to name of few of the publications she’s been in thanks to her celebrity clientele. (I believe that I’ve also seen her on Gilt Groupe before…)
She has her only retail store on South Congress in Austin, and (fun fact), it was recently voted one of the “Top Ten Places to Work in Central Texas.” When I was visiting Austin last weekend, I stopped by her boutique with my girlfriends to check it out.
Here’s a peek inside:
It’s a really energizing space + makes you want to spend lots of $$$. (Go w/ your girls…)
Anyway, one of the coolest things about her store is that there’s a color bar for you to design your very own customized jewelry. You can also do this online on her website, but I thought it was so much fun to do it live when you could actually hold the various settings + stones up to you. After much consideration, I selected a pair of teardrop earring settings + iolite quartz stones for my creation. Within ten minutes, one of the colorists put them together for me + I was able to wear them right out of the store!
Soooooooo…what do you think?!I love them.
If you have a classic solid color dress to wear but you still want to make a statement, check out Kendra Scott Jewelry online. Her stuff is so amazing - I want it ALL. (Just another reason to love Texas, if you ask me…)
