Wardrobe Therapy Women We Love November 16, 2016 12:35
I'm so excited to be featured on the Wardrobe Therapy Blog for the Women We Love feature.
Wardrobe Therapy℠ is a fashion consulting firm in Columbus, Ohio that provides exceptional style and wardrobe services for individuals and organizations nationwide.
The company was founded in August 2006 by Fashion Institute of Technology graduate Elizabeth Bean Smith. She left a successful career in Fortune 500 corporate retail and upscale boutique management to launch a dream that has in turn allowed others to realize theirs by helping them use fashion as a tool to brand themselves and their corporations.
I've personally known Elizabeth for over 14 years and I can't say enough about her talent and expertise. Having Wardrobe Therapy help you define your style and feel great is the best part of the experience. Trust me, I know because I spent the first 3 years with Wardrobe Therapy when the company started. I've watched Elizabeth and her team grow over the years and I've witnessed women go from frustrated to confident with their wardrobe and style.
My first pick for this years Local Gift Guide is Wardrobe Therapy Gift Cards. Give the gift of style. Shop them here: http://www.wardrobetherapyllc.com/wardrobe-therapy-gift-cards/
Fur Jewelry is Fur Real September 23, 2016 08:00"With fashion in the full flush of a new, maximalist mood, bags, shoes, and jewels have taken center stage. On the Fall runways, the heels were haute, the bijoux was stacked and layered to high heaven, and the bags were furrier or came with accessories of their own. The forecast: Get ready for your most sumptuous season yet."~Vogue
Top fashion picks for Fall Fur accessories that we've created!
Fur Rings repurposed from a vintage coat.
Brass cuff with mink pom poms.
Silver cuffs with repurposed fur from vintage stoles.

Leather Lust September 18, 2016 19:09This Fall, I'm falling hard for leather back to vintage. With the 90's resurgence of chokers and bolo necklaces, I've placed my own
Eco-friendly spin on this trend.
*White and Black leather with vintage silver buckles repurposed from a belt.
Nothing beats a bolo that is created by you, for you. Meet my collab with More Than Words Jewelry. Hand stamped customization with leather and vintage bits on the ends. You be the designer.
*Black leather with brass custom plate and feather dangles.
Something that sets you apart in your accessory game is being the only one who owns a piece. Enter the one-of-a-kind nature of Honey Rose & K. Enjoy a charming leather necklace with vintage and modern pieces.
*Black leather with unique modern+vintage charms.
FW16 is crazy for chokers. It's no surprise that we've hand crafted our own leather chokers in fun colors like pink, red and deep green. Each choker is made from scrap leather. Eco-Chic.
*Pink, Green and Red leather chokers.
Fall into leather this season for a modern edgy look.
10% of every purchase goes back to Make-A-Wish.

Custom Creations July 14, 2016 13:36
One of my favorite things to do is custom creations with your vintage and input. Currently I'm working on custom pieces for a bride and her bridal party by incorporating,14K gold, sterling, tassels and of course vintage! Everyone walks away with a unique piece that they can cherish forever.
Another woman recently contacted me to repurposed her very old watches passed down in her family. Each delicate watch has its own charm and will be created into a necklace+bracelet for her and a bracelet for her daughter to enjoy.
The other night I met with Donna who brought me some seriously cool vintage that is in top condition! We brainstormed some ideas on how to breathe new life into her Moms vintage and she's about to have a new jewelry wardrobe that's completely eco-chic.
I believe your jewelry should tell a story and be as unique as you. You should get compliment after compliment, feel good about where it came from and the process of each hand crafted creation. Contact me to learn more. I'd love to help!
April Is Earth Month April 1, 2016 15:37
April is Earth month!
Forty-two years ago Earth Day was established to create awareness and appreciation for the planet. Every April 22 we celebrate around the world with billions of participants from schools to governments. Why? It's more important than ever to discuss how we can protect Earth and what our leaders will continue to do to tackle the major issues we face.
How do we make Earth Day every day? How do you pledge to do better? We all need to stand united for a more sustainable future and demand change. At Honey Rose & K we believe in recycling materials that already exist while making them fashion-forward and unique.
How can the fashion industry become more sustainable? Second to oil, fashion and textiles is the most polluting industry in the world. It can take 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton which equals a single t-shirt and pair of jeans. What becomes of the clothing that doesn't sell, falls apart or goes out of style...it is discarded in giant landfills. Ouch!
Designers can cut out toxic chemicals and choose materials carefully. People can force fashion's biggest brands to publicly disclose their pollution. It starts with caring and education.
The truth is, there are loads of smaller brands that are more sustainable but you may not hear about them. Follow the magazines and blogs that promote sustainable fashion and design until sustainability becomes the trend itself. I believe we can make sustainable style the norm by considering every purchase we make carefully.
Happy Earth Month!

My Favorite Small Businesses November 23, 2015 21:09
I'm a bit crazy when it comes to who I love. These women owned companies are not just businesses. They are supportive to the community, they help others in need, they raise children, they foster friendships and they work as hard as anyone I know. They also answer every email and text you send them. As silly as that sounds it's true. If you need something, they respond. Meet the ladies I respect who run kick-ass creative small businesses and succeed.
Please think of them all year round, not just today.
My favorite dainty jewelry line is One Six Five Jewelry. As seen in W Magazine and more. When I feel the need to layer a dainty piece it's my go-to. You will find me in the OSF earrings daily.
Think a stylist is just for celebrities? Think again. Wardrobe Therapy is the premier styling company to call for your wardrobe needs. If you think you have nothing to wear in your closet, step aside. This company will show you how to wear what you currently own, sort through what you don't need and fill in your gaps. You'll feel comfortable with the team and confident on the go.
Sustainable is our middle name so it's easy to choose The W Nail Bar for your manicure needs. Located in the swanky Short North Arts District with super swanky interiors.
Join us for a trunk show at The W Nail Bar on December 12th from 10-3.
The perfect Holiday card starts with Pieces of You Photography. My go-to photographer for my website photos specializes in shooting your family and little ones. She also creates super chic Holiday cards.
If you want to show a teacher, friend, co-worker or family member how much you appreciate them, head over to Stinks Candles. You can customize your own message of love with adorable matches. So fun!
If you haven't heard of By Luciana by now, you will! This company is taking awesome artisan t-shirts and prints to the next level. Her designs have been seen in major magazines and on celebrities. Browse the selection of inspirational messages and unique designs. Your order arrives with the best packaging to boot.
So there you have it! A unique bunch of women who rock at what they do. Share the love and keep us alive in the community. We are dreamers, creatives, visionaries and neighbors who believe in small business and giving back. Spread the love and enjoy your Holiday season!!!
Steer Horns & Charms Oh My! November 6, 2015 14:09It's here! Holiday has begun to launch online and in boutiques!
What's new from Honey Rose & K?
My favorite addition to the Into The Woods Collection is the steer horn necklaces with beads. You can be certain you saw them here first and we have three styles and more on the way! Look at how the beads shine.
Another new addition that we love are the golden claw necklaces with modern+vintage charms. Each one is unique and eco-chic.
As always, new one-of-a-kind pieces have hit for Holiday and each week will bring new arrivals.
Ho, Ho, Ho.
Currently Obsessed With... October 12, 2015 20:03It's never been easier to be a 70's boho rockstar! This is the perfect season for bohemian lovers. I personally love to put a modern twist on the trend because full on boho can be a little too much for my taste.
Here are a few of my favorite things this week from clothing to jewelry to skin care.
Deborah Lippman has me reminiscing about Vamp polish and her twist incorporates the perfect amount of purple. Almost black but still a bit of color. Bella!
Sophie Hulme was introduced to me by my friend who knows every "it" designer the moment every "it" girl in NYC is wearing them. Enter handbag designer Sophie Hulme. The structure of her bags are perfection but you have to be quick...the sellout is equally as hot. I love this bag for it's long strap and chunky curb chain. Sweet and tough at the same time.
Fall and Holiday has me in layers, not just clothing layers but jewelry layers. Pile it on with some chic edge. Instantly update your outfits with mixed metals in our Into The Woods Collection.
Ohhhh ASOS you are killing my wallet this season because you carry the best petites. My tailor misses me but I'm so happy to find of-the-moment pieces, like this maxi dress, that actually fit beautifully.
Lastly, I've changed up my skincare routine with Rodan+Fields Reverse products.
I do not sell Rodan+Fields but when I saw the changes in my cousin's skin I was sold on trying. Now I see what all the hype is about. My sun damage has disappeared and I'm feeling so good about my skin. My only regret is that I didn't try these products years ago!
Here is Christa's info if you want to give it a try too: Prait.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next time...

Black & Gold ohh la la September 29, 2015 13:55
My favorite color combo has to be Black & Gold! Two colors have never looked so luxe and timeless next to each other. I also appreciate the touch of fierce that you get from wearing black and gold.
Accessories that make everything a game changer is key.
Some of my top picks from the Into The Woods Collection.
How will you pop Black & Gold into your Fall wardrobe?

Inspiration for Into The Woods September 18, 2015 14:00
This season I'm taking you Into The Woods for some magical forest fun!
My inspiration comes from a modern view of a child's mystical adventures through the deep, dark woods. You'll meet creatures with porcupine quills, antlers and maybe even a few skulls.
Magic is everywhere and crystal balls lead you on your journey. It's a fairy tale adventure come to life through vintage.
More one-of-a-kind pieces exist in this story because I believe that you should be as unique as your jewelry.
I hope you enjoy the collection as much as I've enjoyed creating it. Watch as Winter rolls in, you'll feel a chill in the woods!
Thanks for coming along on my journey and check out the Golden Torch earrings in OK! Magazine and the antler wrap bracelet in Capital Style!
