As I've mentioned in a few of my more recent posts, I am headed back to school next month for the Spring 2017 semester. Though I will not physically be on Point Park's campus until fall due to my job at DSG, I am enrolled and will be taking online classes, including *drum roll* my internship as a Style Guru at CollegeFashionista! So you will be seeing me (as well as some of my other fellow Pittsburgh Style Gurus) darting around the city taking photos with notebooks in hand, all semester long. And who knows, if I bump into you downtown and love your style, I might ask to feature you in one of my articles for CollegeFashionista!
So with that big news out of the way, I also have another exciting blog related announcement, which is that for this post I have partnered with the local jewelry shop Boho Tribe Collection.
One of the many unique things about Boho Tribe Collection is aside from being a local online and pop up shop, the whole company is actually the brainchild of my coworker, Laura Bonucchi. I met Laura this past summer when the DSG store support team was out at the store in McCandless Crossing, setting the floor and merchandising the mannequins for fall. During this time, Laura and I worked together and got to chatting about my blog and that is when I found out that she ran a small jewelry business of her own. Well since then, Laura reached out to me and asked if I would like to collaborate and of course I said yes!
So how did Boho Tribe Collection get started you ask? Well back in 2015 Laura had hit a rough patch in her life and began to practice yoga. During this time, she noticed that yoga really helped her get through that hard time and made her feel exceptionally better, so after this realization Laura decided to become a yoga instructor. Also during this time of soul searching, Laura also decided to begin making jewelry. She began making small things such as simple bracelets and necklaces but began to get more passionate about her craft and went on to take a class at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for metal working.
After perfecting her skills in jewelry making, Laura was still working as a yoga instructor and had many friends who owned yoga studios. So she began selling her jewelry in these respective studios due to them being a hit with her friends and clientele. Then in September of 2015, she set up shop at her very first live event, Fit Fest, that took place in Newcastle, PA. She has since went on to do a live shop at Wanderlust Yoga Retreat, and launch her brand's website, Boho Tribe Collection, in May 2016. Laura even has more live shops coming up soon, but I'll give you the details on that later in the article.
The pieces Laura was kind enough to give me for this article are actually the two gorgeous pieces pictured earlier in this article. These two pieces are the Inner Peace Boho Stacker and the Antiqued Feather Necklace. To style these pretty pieces, I paired them with my New York & Company fringed sweater, a pair of my Kendra Scott Earing a simple pair of brown fleece leggings (leggings are pants), and my brown boots from SheIn. The reason I chose to style them with this outfit is because I felt the browns and tans played off the color of the necklace and bracelet set very nicely.
The reason I chose the Inner Peace Boho Stacker as well as the Antiqued Feather Necklace was honestly because I just knew that they would match my Kendra Scott earrings perfectly. I also had a feeling that they would style perfectly with this sweater (man do I love being right!). And lastly these two pieces, in my opinion, make the perfect pair due to their perfect color combination.
