Double Trouble Trunk Show: Staff Picks

Unless you’ve been deliberately ignoring us for the past week, you probably already know we’re having two jewelry trunk shows this weekend–Lizzie Fortunato at The Hive and Twine & Twig at The Shoe Hive. We won’t go over all that again. If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, you can read about it here. So for now we’ll keep it short and sweet and just point out a few pieces available this weekend only. Here are our Staff Picks.

How to Wear: Lizzie Fortunato

The great thing about jewelry–especially as compared to clothing–is that there is no right or wrong way to wear it. Whether you like delicate pieces on their own or pile on the statements, it all comes down to self-expression. So, think of these as suggestions but know that we want to see you create your personal spin on how to wear Lizzie Fortunato jewelry!

In styling some of the pieces we have at the store, we realized that we are very much into the matchy-matchy look when it comes to the twin sisters’ designs.

In the first look, we’ve matched one of the colors in the feathered earrings to the model’s ruffled Ulla Johnson dress. Doing this brings intention to a look that is otherwise simple in its composition–dress and earrings.

In this second look, we’ve matched the earrings to the necklace. Only a few years ago, we would have told you to shy away from sets of jewelry. But when individual pieces do such a great job of holding their own, it makes an even greater style statement when they are worn together!

What pieces are you looking forward to trying on during this weekend’s Lizzie Fortunato trunk show at The Hive? How will you style them? Don’t forget: all Lizzie Fortunato designs (including bags and other accessories) will be 20% off as part of the event from Friday through Sunday.

As Seen In: Lizzie Fortunato in Harper’s Bazaar

It may have been a coincidence but we like to think it was fortuitous that our Lizzie Fortunato earrings popped up in one of Harper’s Bazaar most recent emails just a few days before our Lizzie Fortunato trunk show!

This weekend (Friday through Sunday) is your chance to score these earrings or any other Lizzie Fortunato style at a 20% discount. We should be getting in our delivery of trunk show goods today and we can’t wait to unpack it all! Sadly, it all goes back on Monday morning so don’t miss out!

Sister/Sister Trunk Shows: Lizzie Fortunato and Twine & Twig

Did you know that sisters are at the helm of both Lizzie Fortunato and Twine & Twig? It’s true! 

Twin sisters Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato founded Lizzie Fortunato in 2008 with the intent of creating unique accessories that use unexpected materials and champion handicrafts from a breadth of places and cultures. Lizzie designs the line, while Kathryn, who got her start on Wall Street, oversees sales and operations.

A love of the rustic outdoors, combined with a great appreciation for the casual calm offered by the North Carolina coast, inspired sisters Elizabeth Stafford White and Jacquelyn Stafford Buckner, to begin designing jewelry. From there, the sisters collaborated on the launch of Twine & Twig in late 2013, creating a line of jewelry that reflects both designers’ love for natural, organic beauty, as well as their southern roots and extensive worldly travels.

We consider ourselves lucky to work with such talented young women who believe in both the importance of family and fashion. In celebration of spring and of sisters, we are hosting a double trunk show this coming weekend. You’ll find a special and expanded trunk-show-only selection of jewelry and other accessories by Lizzie Fortunato at The Hive and by Twine & Twig at The Shoe Hive. All designs by the two brands will be 20% off from Friday to Sunday only.

And since we’re recognizing the importance of family, it is perhaps good timing to note you might consider this your chance to get a head start on Mothers Day shopping!
