This past weekend I had the pleasure of traveling east to Atlanta to celebrate 2 incredible women: Kelly Shatat & Carley Ochs. So, what do these 2 women have in common? They are both the innovative founders of 2 HUGE jewelry brands that you already know…Moon & Lola and Bourbon & Boweties…and they have partnered together to present a limited edition bangle collection that combines the fun and unique qualities of both brands! Moon & Lola is a lifestyle brand that is traditionally known for their monogrammed and personalized accessories, while Bourbon & Boweties specializes in handcrafted bangles using semi-precious stones…..so you can only imagine what the creative geniuses behind these brands were able to come up with when they joined forces!
Lucky for me (and for y’all!), I was invited to hang with Kelly (Moon & Lola) and Carley (Bourbon & Boweties) in Atlanta last weekend while they debuted the collection at their super posh Launch Party….think: Slim Aarons, meets poolside, meets Palm Beach, meets southern charm! The next day I hopped over to the Atlanta AmericaMart to take a sneak peek at their showrooms, and tried as hard as I could not to drool over all the gorgeous goodies!
But one thing that doesn’t go unnoticed about these 2 bad-ass babes isn’t their amazing style or their love for their brands (which both of those things exist, duh)…..its their eagerness to employ and empower women by providing so many jobs and encouraging female creativity. And as a fellow female who works tirelessly in the same industry, I will admit that those type of women are rare…
