Reviewing Estee Lauder’s collaboration with jewelry designer Sabyasachi

What colors come to mind when you think of India? The phrase, ‘Pink is the navy of India’ came to mind when I saw the new collaboration between jewelry and fashion designer Sabyasachi and Estee Lauder. The partnership launched a limited-edition lipstick collection of 10 shades that retail for $63. It is interesting to see beauty and jewelry collaborate. Estee Lauder has worked with Monica Rich Kosann on bejeweled compacts.

Purchasing a lipstick

When I saw the lipsticks, I decided I would splurge on one. Recently I’ve been getting into vintage beauty and buying lipsticks. I picked the Devi Pink to purchase. That color was the only one I found unique to Estee’s regular lipsticks.

It is too bad Sabyasachi … Read the rest

How Marvelous was Mrs. Maisel for Amazon?

How Marvelous was Mrs. Maisel for Amazon?

This is the first weekend in about 2 months that I have not had a new episode to watch of Amazon’s the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. I got interested in it when it premiered in 2017. The show had 2 subjects I loved breaking into stand-up comedy and vintage fashion. Where there is vintage fashion there is vintage jewelry. The show was a success among critics with over 200 Emmy nominations and 80+ wins but after 5 seasons the show ended. I’m going to share my opinion on the show regarding marketing for Amazon and how you can embrace trends that may further your business.

The premise was a 1950s housewife that found comedy due to her husband … Read the rest

How Jewelry: The Body Transformed Exhibit is highlighting the Public’s Interest in Jewelry

Do you consider jewelry art? What kind of jewelry? I think of jewelry as art but only certain kinds I really enjoy viewing. The JAR exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City was an art show to me. It was also the first time I went to the Met. I made the trip again earlier in the month to see Jewelry: The Body Transformed before it ends on Sunday February 24th. It opened in November, a short time for viewing, if you had to travel to see it. Jewelry featured in museums is becoming more common. The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has their own jewelry focused exhibit that started in November 2018 … Read the rest

Jewelry by Suzanne Belperron : A Book Review

I knew little about Suzanne Belperron. My first introduction to her work was seeing the blue chalcedony jewelry she designed for Wallis Simpson. I then learned bits and pieces about her life and jewelry designs. These bits of information amounted to photos of past jewelry identified as a Belperron piece and dates such as birth, death, job history, etc. When I heard a new book on her life and jewelry was being published in February, I put my name on Amazon’s pre-order list. Madam Belperron remained a private person throughout her life but it is her work and those around her, clients, coworkers, etc, that really tell a story of the woman behind the designs. The book is fabulous! It … Read the rest
