HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU?

Comfy with style!

DO YOU HAVE A STYLE STAPLE? SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS A CONSTANT IN YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

Yes, I love my leather jacket! In fact I love all things leather. I have 5 leather dresses, 2 pairs of leather pants and 4 leather jackets.

My first leather outfit was made by my mom back in 1998. It was a pair of high waisted Faux leather pants. And my first pair of leather boots were given to me by my momma when I was 10. They were gorgeous! Since then, I have been collecting all things leather including boots! 
PS- did I forget to mention that I own 20 pairs of leather boots? (haha)

CAN YOU REMEMBER WHAT/WHO WERE YOUR EARLIEST STYLE INFLUENCES WERE IN CHILDHOOD THROUGH YOUR TEENAGE YEARS?

Vogue and my momma. My Mom is a Fashion Designer by trade and she designed for C&A and Mango's Spain my entire life. I was always exposed to her workshop and often used to make my own clothes at her manufacture. I would wrap my self in fabric from the latest collections and jump on her cutting table to perform a fashion show during the employees lunch break. I was actually their entertainment.

Fun Fact: I never read a book until high school. We only read Vogue and Bazaar at home. It was kind of silly!

WHAT/WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES TODAY?

I'm not one to be influenced easily, but I love Camila Coelho's style. She not only dresses like I would, but she is sweet, kind and smart. She is also... Brazilian! Check her out @camilacoelho 

WHAT IS A TREND YOU’RE OBSESSED WITH?

I am really into the neon trend. Neon has been in and out for the past 8 years, but I think it's here to stay. I am also in love with street wear and athleisure. My favorite way to dress comfortable, but still be in style. 

WHAT ABOUT GUILTY PLEASURES? A TREND YOU SECRETLY ADORE?

I love high waisted everything and long earrings! 

HOW DOES JEWELRY PLAY IN TO YOUR STYLE AND YOUR STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES WITH JEWELRY?

I always loved jewelry, I started with large hoop earrings with my name across (remember those?) and started to wear all things jewelry. I love jewelry so much that it has been my main fashion expression and passion for over 10 years, and I made a career out of it!

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE KOLLECTIN PIECES? WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?

OMG, you already know which ones are my fav! I got the entire office hooked on them! It's the Mia Earrings. And I've been wearing the Kayla Earrings all season.

This week, we’re featuring Kollectin's very own Julia!

After, be sure to take our survey for YOUR CHANCE to be featured in Kollectin's #MyStyleMyStory and take home some fab Kollectin jewelry! 

MicrosoftTeams-image (2).png

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU?

Natural and minimal, with some alternative and athletic vibes sprinkled in. Is that too many adjectives? I guess my go-to is an unfitted black or white tee with some sort of jean variation on the bottom. I like to go for the "looks great without really trying" look. Not too sure if I've ever successfully pulled that off, though.

DO YOU HAVE A STYLE STAPLE? SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS A CONSTANT IN YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

Black. All the black. And lots of other neutrals. They're the easiest to coordinate before running out for the day.

CAN YOU REMEMBER WHAT/WHO WERE YOUR EARLIEST STYLE INFLUENCES WERE IN CHILDHOOD THROUGH YOUR TEENAGE YEARS?

Probably Rocket Power. Prime Nickelodeon programming right there. I was really into skateboarding and basketball as a kid, so I dug all of their outfits whenever they would go and do one of the bazillion sports they played. I moved to LA, too, so maybe it had more of an affect on me than I thought since the show took place in a city that was based off of Santa Monica.

WHAT/WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES TODAY?

Does John Mayer count? His sweatshirt and windbreaker game is off the charts. Idk, I honestly feel like I would wear any outfit that I've seen him in.

WHAT IS A TREND YOU’RE OBSESSED WITH?

Anything that looks unisex 

WHAT ABOUT GUILTY PLEASURES? A TREND YOU SECRETLY ADORE?

HOW DOES JEWELRY PLAY IN TO YOUR STYLE AND YOUR STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES WITH JEWELRY?

I was a huge tomboy when I was younger. The only jewelry I was really into were rings, mainly mood rings at that (90s represent). I really love a more natural look so I don't typically wear jewelry day-to-day, but when I do add jewelry to my wardrobe, it makes me feel extra special. I've also found that I've gone through phases of certain types of accessories, and when I do that's the only thing I really wear. I went through the ring phase as a kid, a bracelet phase in high school, then an earring phase in college, a watch phase post-college, and now necklaces. Maybe this represents the changing ~phases~ of my ~life~ but I honestly couldn't tell you why I'm like that. What I'm really into right now are smaller, feminine pieces, like layered gold necklaces with maybe a very thin gold bracelet. Anything simple, dainty, and feminine. 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE KOLLECTIN PIECES? WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?

  • Charmed by Mehgan Zodiac Necklace - Surprise: a simple and feminine gold necklace that I love! It's super classic, and I get to proudly rep that I'm a Scorpio.

  • Fiona Ring Set - I adore their natural look on top of  the fact that you have the option to pair them up or wear them individually. They also go with anything, which I love.

  • Starr Necklace - This is a piece I'd never naturally gravitate to, but I honestly can't take my eyes off of it when someone is wearing it!

This week, we’re featuring Kollectin's very own Julie!

After, be sure to take our survey for YOUR CHANCE to be featured in Kollectin's #MyStyleMyStory and take home some fab Kollectin jewelry! 

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T KNOW YOU?

Edgy Hipster. I love a trend, but I also die for vintage. I’ll wear an H&M blazer with thrifted cut-off jean shorts. I love the juxtaposition of trendy fast-fashion meets vintage and or designer.

DO YOU HAVE A STYLE STAPLE? SOMETHING THAT YOU THINK IS A CONSTANT IN YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

Skinny Jeans, leather jackets of all shades, silk scarfs, hats and booties

CAN YOU REMEMBER WHAT/WHO WERE YOUR EARLIEST STYLE INFLUENCES WERE IN CHILDHOOD THROUGH YOUR TEENAGE YEARS?

If I’m being honest, I would say my Mom, Gwen Stefani and Cher. Needless to say, I had a very eclectic childhood. Although each of these women had very different styles, they were true to themselves and I admired that. I also almost exclusively listened to 90s alternative growing up, so I think that played a part in my sense of style.

WHAT/WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES TODAY?

Instagram/ Pinterest are amazing resources if I’m looking for style inspiration. My current style icons are Leonie Hanne of the blog Ohhcouture and Ashley Brooke/itsashbrooke on Insta.

WHAT IS A TREND YOU’RE OBSESSED WITH?

Co-ords/two- piece sets, faux fur and monochromatic outfits

WHAT ABOUT GUILTY PLEASURES? A TREND YOU SECRETLY ADORE?

Dressed up biker shorts and anything futuristic chic - metallic prints, retro sunnies

HOW DOES JEWELRY PLAY IN TO YOUR STYLE AND YOUR STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES WITH JEWELRY?

My earliest memories are stacking antique rings and trying on brooches from my iconic grandmother. I am now obsessed with Art Deco inspired pieces. To go back a little further, my 2nd great grandmother was full Cherokee Native American. Since I can remember, I have been drawn to Sterling silver, Turquoise and Coral made with traditional Native American designs. While in my Fashion Merchandising Major in college, my admiration for all things accessories only grew.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE KOLLECTIN PIECES? WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?

My favorite styles would have to be: The Winola Earrings, the texture and leopard touch is so beautiful. The Mikayla Earring, made with Faux fur and wood, makes it the cutest Fall accessory. I love wearing the Harpa Earrings to vamp up any casual outfit.

TREND ALERT | Gemstone Earrings

Hey Beautiful!

Can you believe it’s already October?! From knitted sweaters to Autumn-inspired nail colors (who doesn’t love a good shade of merlot?) to pumpkin-flavored everything, we absolutely adore this time of year. We’re ready to cuddle up in front of a fireplace with our favorite book, a comfy blanket, and a mug of hot cocoa just reading this! With the changing of the seasons comes a changing of trends, and we couldn’t be more excited to dive into some Fall-inspired pieces!

You know what we can’t get enough of right now (besides PSLs)? Gemstone earrings! They’re not only an amazing accessory to rock, but they’re trending, trending, trending. They’re perfect to add some dazzle to any festive frock you don this season! Not only are gemstone earrings the perfect statement piece to dress up any casual outfit, but they can accentuate any killer ensemble, too. They’re as multidimensional as, well, a gemstone! These glitzy earrings also get us super excited for the holiday season (did we mention how much we love this time of year??) which will be here before we know it!

Speaking of, is anyone else getting a headache just thinking about holiday shopping? It’s never too soon to plan ahead, so why not snag some of these bad boys ahead of Black Friday? They’ll make the perfect gift for any fashion-forward gal in your life. Not only that, but it’ll be one more thing to cross off your checklist before you have to start making your New Years resolutions! Ok, now we’re really getting head of ourselves…

Check out some of our fave gemstone earrings below, exclusively available in the Kollectin app:

HOW DOES JEWELRY PLAY IN TO YOUR STYLE AND YOUR STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR EARLIEST MEMORIES WITH JEWELRY?

As a young girl, I began playing dress up with with my grandma's jewelry box every time she would visit. I became obsessed early on with her oversized clip-on hoop earrings and would insist upon wearing them everywhere! At 4 years old, this was definitely a look :) 

When I started working as a jewelry & accessories buyer at 23 years old, I was suddenly granted access to almost every jewelry showroom in New York. This was a thrilling and eye-opening experience to say the least - one I am incredibly grateful for! 

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE KOLLECTIN PIECES? WHY DO YOU LOVE THEM?

  • Rosalie Necklace - gold pendants with some added bling are top of my list in the necklace category.

  • Rae Earrings - "safety pins" as earrings are my personal style favorite.  An everyday staple that puts that extra kick in your casual or dressy look...

  • Cindy Necklace - subtle color, easy layering necklace.  I love long lightweight layering pieces like this!

LIBRA | September 23 - October 22

LIBRA | September 23 - October 22

Hi Lovely!

Can you believe it’s already Fall? The days are getting darker a little earlier and we finally get to bust out our Autumn-scented candles (BTW, the Sweater Weather three-wick at Bath & Body Works is EVERYTHING). Besides sipping on a pumpkin spice latte in our favorite knitted beanie, this time of year also signifies another change of the seasons. That’s right: it’s LIBRA season, baby!

If you’re a gal that was born between September 23 and October 22, then raise a glass because Libra season is a nonstop party! Libras are known for their endearing personalities and irresistible charm. Libras are also natural born leaders, and others naturally gravitate towards them not only because they’re sociable, but because they’re fair and objective. While Libra ladies are super independent, they also have a deep inherent need for partnership. As total romantics, Libras favor their one-on-one relationships above all others. However, their quest for perfect balance might get disrupted by their indecisiveness, which stems from their ability to always weigh both sides of a situation. But hey, that comes with the territory of having such a strong sense of diplomacy!

To celebrate Libra season, be sure to snag the Libra necklace, part of the CHARMED x Mehgan Zodiac Collection. Did we mention that Libras are also known to love aesthetically beautiful things? So this is the perfect gift for any lavish Libra in your life ;) Though if they’re already naturally inclined to be on the indecisive side, it may be hard for them to choose between silver and gold!

Libras, it’s your turn! Get your sign from CHARMED x Mehgan at kollectin.me/Mehganj - or in the Kollectin app - and rock your bad Libra self all season (and year) long!

XOXO,
Your Friends at Kollectin

How To Be A #GIRLBOSS

How To Be A #GIRLBOSS

Hey there Gorgeous!

If you’re like me, you’ve probably heard the term “Girlboss” thrown around quite a bit by now. After all, it’s 2018, and the term is probably most widely known to be coined in 2015 by American entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso, founder of women’s fashion retailer Nasty Gal. Her autobiography, #GIRLBOSS, details how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world. Pretty impressive, huh?!

So, what does it mean to be a #GIRLBOSS?

We get it: “Girlboss? Why not just use the term boss when referring to a female higher-up?” Well, we do. Doesn’t everybody?! However, GIRLBOSS means so much more than just a term that designates a woman who’s in charge. GIRLBOSS is a movement. Being a GIRLBOSS means taking charge of your life, and it represents the women who are confident enough to pursue their own ambitions amidst the haters and naysayers. After all, women have to virtually fight their way into “boys clubs” across most industries, don’t they? Why not celebrate the women who are continuously proving everyone wrong? That’s what being a #GIRLBOSS is all about: empowering one another to fight for your dreams.

Speaking of badass women, Kollectin had an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G panel with Kollectin's very own Co-Founder & CEO, Nadia Lee, and Style Stars, Jezlan Moyet (Good Morning Lalaland) and Xandrea Garay (Ultimate Event Planning), about how to succeed as a #GIRLBOSS in the digital age. Check it out below - we promise it’s worth every second!

Don’t forget: you are smart, you are beautiful, and you can do anything you put your mind to. And after you hear the powerful words from these inspiring ladies, you can add #GIRLBOSS to that list, too!

Talk soon!

XOXO, 
Your Friends at Kollectin

Happy Birthday Los Angeles | Maya x Melios

Happy Birthday Los Angeles | Maya x Melios

Hey Lovely!

Did you know there's a BIG birthday today? That's right, the city of Los Angeles is turning 237!

We absolutely love Los Angeles, but we know we could be a little biased. After all, Kollectin is headquartered in LA LA Land! 

In honor of the City of Angels, Kollectin and Style Star Maya Hope Haider are releasing the delicate and oh so stylish Los Angeles Necklace designed by Melios.

If you don't know Maya, she's an LA girl with impeccable style, just look at her Instagram @mayahopehaider. Stunning, right? This babe LOVES LA, and we know she's not the only one. Whether you're surfing in Santa Monica, wine tasting in Malibu, shopping on Rodeo, hiking to the Hollywood sign, or hitting up an underground dance party in Silverlake, LA has something for everyone. It's as diverse as those who inhabit it. Whether you're here to land a job, chase a dream, or just to get some sun, Los Angeles is a melting pot of people and possibilities, and that's why we love it.

Speaking of possibilities, Melios is offering this stunning Los Angeles Necklace in both silver and gold. Choosing a color will be as difficult as deciding where to get brunch on a Sunday morning (but if you ask us, Pump in West Hollywood has the most charming ambiance). 

The Los Angeles Necklace not only represents the city itself, but it embodies the spirit of possibility this city has to offer. As we celebrate Los Angeles turning another year younger, let's also celebrate those who are continuously reaching for the stars. Cheers to the individuals who are persevering through life's challenges, to the dreamers and the doers whose aspirations are as big as the city they live in. 

Cheers to Los Angeles, and cheers to YOU babe!

You can shop the Los Angeles Necklace in Maya's Tiny Boutique, only on the Kollectin.

XOXO, 
Your Friends at Kollectin

Style Star of the Month | July 2018 | Kaila Yu

Style Star of the Month | July 2018 | Kaila Yu

Here at Kollectin, we are always on the lookout for women who embrace the "Girl Boss" mantra. In particular, we like to recognize women who are followed and admired because they possess notable aspirations and influential lifestyles.   

One of Kollectin’s stand out Style Stars has been, writer and travel blogger, Kaila Yu. Kaila is indeed living her "Best Life" so much that she has been named Style Star of the month for July. Kaila is an accomplished scribe with credits in VICE, Skyscanner, Matador and Extra Crispy, among others. Her pieces are mainly focused on travel and food, but the stylish tastemaker also considers herself a fashionista, brand strategist, and cat lover. She has also co-founded lifestyle brand Nylon Pink and food brand NomList.  

35001486_193603428009365_5800112334043086848_n.jpg

When it comes to being a Kollectin Style Star, in addition to being an ambassador for the brand, Kaila has her very own digital jewelry boutique that has been curated to reflect her own personal style. 

“I absolutely love the selection of jewelry within Kollectin,” said Kaila. “I am a statement jewelry type of girl, and Kollectin has an endless collection of dangling designs. There’s nothing better than having a new selection of jewelry every month to inspire all my outfit of the day choices!” 

Not one to shy away from the camera, Kaila often posts stunning images on her social media pages that feature many of her favorite Kollectin pieces. She gives credit to her photographer and fellow Style Star, Kiki Wongo and offers the tip, “The most important thing is lighting. A bit overcast is great, too sunny is not great for taking photos.” 

At the end of the day, travel is Kaila’s top passion. “I want to teach everyone that travel is accessible to everyone, and I plan on launching a course, teaching on how I built my travel career,” she said of her future plans and goals.

Kollectin kicks off the summer with an Interactive Pop-Up Shop

On June 21st emerging jewelry fashion app Kollectin will be kicking off its Pop-Up week by hosting an exclusive, invite-only party, where select tastemakers and style stars will come out to celebrate the girlfriend marketplace for style inspirations. 

Technology is incredible, right? Well, that depends on who you ask. Historically, fashion and technology have had a complicated relationship. Due to the convenience of the Internet and social media, brick and mortar stores are increasingly closing shop, leaving creatives and designers out in the cold with nowhere to showcase and sell their work. 

This is where Kollectin comes in. Kollectin aims to replace vanishing physical stores with digital jewelry boutiques run by designers and influencers also known as  "Style Stars." Potential shop owners get to handpick the designs they sell in their digital shops and make them available to those in their network. 

At the pop-up party, invited ladies will get the opportunity to acquaint themselves with Kollectin’s innovative platform, get started with opening their shops and have a good time with other ambitious women. 

Each day of the Pop-Up week will feature a theme aimed at educating and empowering Girl Bosses. From Skin and Beauty workshops to an informational panel on ways to build passive income, Kollectin is hoping to motivate women everywhere to aspire to inspire.
