Part of my job is scouting and finding new and unique accessories for my brides. This is probably my favorite find ever! I was on a shoot this week for Smitten Magazine, where I am featuring the amazingly talented ( and not to mention personable and down to earth) Carley Ochs, founder and designer of Bourbon & Boweties. Carley’s bracelets are one of a kind and completely addicting. She started this venture just last Fall and is in 43 stores already! She recently started working with brides in creating these one of a kind bracelets for her bridesmaid party….can we say genius idea? I already have 2 brides in mind for a design meeting for their upcoming nuptials. Carley is growing fast on the fashion scene and I was fortunate enough to spend an afternoon with this jewelry genius and am a total fan of the brand as well as the designer. Below are a few of the thousands, yes thousands ( she brought 1200 bracelets to the shoot and sells those in about a week) of bracelets that make up Bourbon & Boweties.
Is it so much fun to layer these bracelets ( I wear 8) and Carley encourages mixing and matching colors which is why this is a perfect gift for your bridesmaids. Carley is in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina and is growing by the day. She will be in Charleston, SC for Charleston Fashion Week in the Style Lounge so if you’re in town, grab your stilettos, head over to her table and accessorize your outfit for the night! Not in Charleston? You can place orders directly through her facebook page.
