An Afternoon with OliaModa
I want to share my joy in hosting the first Oliamoda appreciation event, April 9 for my followers and friends at the Manika Jewelry boutique in downtown San Francisco. Thank you to everyone who attended “An Afternoon with Olia” on this rainy Saturday. The weather did not stop us from having fun, sharing laughs, dressing up and taking fabulous photos.
And for those of you who did not attend, here are the highlights of this wonderful day in fab photos captured by Kaitlyn Miller. We were also honored to have Flora Tsapovsky, global fashion blogger, speaking about spring trends.
I teamed up with Manika because they carry stunning jewelry, but more because their vision goes hand in hand my style and elegance philosophy. Their carefully curated local and international artisan pieces represent my elegance with an edge and of your style too, my readers.
That day I styled three look created with the Manika Jewelry: Elegant, Modern and EdgyThe lovely Delphine Richagneux, Parisian-born, owner and CEO of Manika Jewelry paired her elegant look with gorgeous silver necklace and gold and silver earrings by an Italian Designer Emanuella Ducca. The large hammered silver and sapphire cuff gives this outfit an edge or an elegant look with gold hammered Jean Grisooni bangles.
Carol, my dear friend, assistant and Fashion Sista is dressed in a Modern look. I styled her in a chunky, organic statement necklace from Jean Grisoni. The bold white blouse with black lace detail sets the stage for the textural diversity of the wood, diamonds and silver of the necklace. To complete the Modern statement, I paired it with silver textured earrings and an elegant white gold matte ring. Black and white shoes, socks and a whimsical handbag carry through the Modern theme.
For my Edgy look, I chose a dress from Tokyo Gamine haute couture available through the Manika boutique. It hugs the bodice and waist, ending with a feminine flounce. To highlight its Edgy style, I chose a unique round pendant that combines natural materials such as coral and pearl. The earrings are subtle antique beads adding to the organic feel. Finally, a luminous pearl ring set in a ceramic band keeps the organic feeling going. The total effect achieves edge by combining natural forms and shapes with man made fabrics including my current favorite Isabel Marant block heel shoes. Th monster clutch was a perfect addition to this outfit.
It was such a fun afternoon, everyone participated in three fun giveaways. A jewelry set that was compliments of Manika Jewelry. I provided a fun clutch and off the shoulder top made possible by the generous ladies at San Francisco’s Shop the Harbingers. It was truly a community of strong and creative women enjoying each others company.
Please make sure to check out all the lovely jewelry at Manika and head to the boutique on Market Street for a warm and intimate shopping adventure.
Thank you for taking part in my very special day and a warm thank you to Manika Jewelry and all the ladies involved in making the day so seamless and fun.
