A bit of a change from Tuesday’s red dress, I know, but i like to show all sides of myself with clothes, as we all do.
I was recently contacted by Sylca Jewelry, a wonderful mother/daughter company that offers unique, beautiful, eco-friendly pieces that will take your outfit to the next level! I spoke with Camila, and she was so lovely and wonderful to work with . Customer service is superb. I picked out a necklace and earrings, and I have to say, it was challenging as I loved so many of their pieces. They sent the pieces and within two days I received them.
Sylca was developed by mom, Sylvia and daughter, Camilia, both born in Columbia, with the background in fashion. Sylvia states, “Most important of all, I try to instill passions in my daughter and business partner, Camila. Camila has chosen her own passions now and has set a path of individuality based on her upbringing.” -Sylvia
I truly appreciate that point of view and inspiration, where one is brought up to follow one’s passion. I did so with music when I went to school for jazz guitar. My parents both encouraged me to follow my passion, and it shows in their designs.
One can tell by the intricate design and love of nature with pieces made of wood, shell, vegan materials, and natural dyes. I also love that with each purchase they donate to help Filipino women in need. So, beauty, nature, eco-friendly, and helping others. Sold! Read more about the ladies HERE.
On to the piece I chose. As I mentioned, and as you know, I love jewelry. I have unique, one of a kind pieces, vintage and antique jewelry, pieces from Artisians, a love for wood jewelry, and especially love designs from nature. I find serentiy most, when I am in the mountains. Hiking or being in nature is calming to me. After going through the pages several times, but remembering the bronze piece I saw on their INSTAGRAM account, I decided that was the piece for me. I loved the bronze color, the vegan leather strands, seeds dipped in bronze, along with the black shapes for added structure and interest. I loved this piece as a neutral pieces that can be worn with anything.
I had in mind these weathered, distressed brown leather booties that look like they are from the early 1900’s. ( found on Ebay from ZARA) and wanted to style a menswear look with a Elegantly Dressed and Stylish twist. A “Feminine” mens-wear look with the green tweed mini skirt, peppered with yellows, browns and dark green threads, ruffled mustard yellow blouse, and fitted brown plaid vest. Add the Rebecca Minkoff cognac leather handbag. Got to make it girly! The necklace was the inspiration for this look. The bronze SYLCA piece added such texture to the look with all of the fall colors, as well as the beautiful rectangular bronze dangled earrings.
