Lizzie Fortunato at P.45 – Glamorous Jewels and more…

 

{Had to have this one! The colors are amazing.}

{WOW, what a statement piece! Textures galore in this Rope Necklace.}

{Glam, glam, glam – perfect piece for a dressy date night…I’m thinking with a sexy LBD perhaps? I’d rock it during the day with black leather pants though – I’m not afraid.}

{Here they are, cute and chic as can be! Lizzie (on right) and Kathryn (on left) Fortunato – the Masterminds behind the line. Check out the beautiful necklaces they are wearing…these will be available for purchase in their upcoming Spring 2012 line! I cannot wait!!}

This past weekend, I had the great honor of meeting Lizzie and Kathryn Fortunato of Lizzie Fortunato Jewels at P.45 – one of the coolest and most fashion-forward boutiques here in Chicago. I got to chat with the ladies and find out a little more of what their line is all about. All of their jewelry and accessories are hand-made and inspired by different cultures from around the world. Lizzie and Kathryn travel to India regularly to oversee production of many of their hand-beaded pieces.

This year, Lizzie Fortunato took the next step and introduced handbags and clutches into their line – with great success. Their pieces are always completely unique and one step ahead of the fashion curve. All I can say is WOW, just wait what’s coming at you as far as handbags and jewels for the Spring Season! I got a little sneak peek into their Spring catalog and I seriously want every single piece (I wish…).

Thank you so much Lizzie & Kathryn for traveling from NYC to visit us! And thank you P.45 for being as fabulous as you always are and hosting this event!
