As previously discussed, I had the privilege of attending the Jimmy Crystal & Swarovski event at the Jimmy Crystal New York showroom on August 27th. The event celebrated the launch of new jewelry collections by Cassi Lin, Wendy Chen, Arielle Mason and Lene Lin. Founded in 1991, Jimmy Crystal is renown for its work in creating stunning and unique Swarovski Crystal items, including eyewear, jewelry, handbags, watches and home decor items.
The event showcased the work of several of Jimmy Crystal’s designers. Top Senior Designer Cassi Lin, who has been with Jimmy Crystal for eight years, developed the colorful Firefly, the elegant Ice Cube, and the French-inspired Bonjour Collections. Arielle Mason, a designer with the company for almost two years, created the glamorous Monaco and the cosmic Nebula Collections. Wendy Chen debuted her first crystal collection for the brand in 2006 and also contributes to the Marketing and Public Relations effort. Her latest creations are the bold Tribeca and the adventurous Metropolis Collections. Lene Lin, who came to the company in 2011, designed the mysterious Blue Night Out and the luminous Miracle Collections. Photographs of each designer and their collections can be viewed HERE.

Last week I had the privilege of attending the Jimmy Crystal New York and Swarovski Crystal Elements event at the Jimmy Crystal showroom to get a firsthand glimpse of my friend, Wendy Chen’s, new jewelry collection. Her pieces are absolutely beautiful and a true reflection of the extent of her talent. Take a look at the pieces from her Tribeca and Metropolis collections. Jimmy Crystal, as you can see from some of the other photographs also has other amazing pieces.

I dug up this brightly-colored silk dress from my closet that I’ve had since the beginning of my post-grad studies. Kind of loving the hot pink/lime-green color combination right now…

I commemorated New York City’s first snowfall of 2012 with the resurrection of my infamous pom pom hat that I’ve had since my early college years. In addition to being incredibly warm, the hat is well-known for the absurdly large pom pom prominently affixed on top. The cream hat was the perfect complement to my sherbet/ice cream colored ensemble courtesy of Chanel and Theory.
