Kendra Scott Takes Bethesda

Dontown Bethesda just received a fabulous new addition- the first Kendra Scott boutique on the east coast! Theses iconic jewels- bright, colorful and unique- have taken the city by storm since the store opening on Monday, July 14. Upon entering, I was simply amazed by the clean lines and sophistication of the boutique. The most amazing part is the Color Bar, where you can design your own piece of jewelry and watch the Kendra Scott employees craft your jewelry. Although I have yet to purchase a piece of her jewelry, I might see a Rayne necklace in my future!

Be Your Own Beach Babe

It’s summer: put down those heated styling tools and pick up Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe products. Both the texturing hair cream and texturizing sea salt spray can make any hair type go from boring to beachy in a matter of seconds. Personally, I heat style my hair quite often from September to May; therefore, once June rolls around, I love to give my hair a much needed break.

With my naturally curly hair, the Beach Babe products enhance my natural curl. On a more straight textured hair, the products give a fresh-out-of-the-ocean wave. Aside from the effortlessly beautiful effect of the Beach Babe products, they make getting ready much quicker! Forget the blow dryer and flat iron; just step out of the shower and run a little Beach Babe through your tosseled locks.

 Ocean hair? No! Curls courtesy of Beach Babe products? Yes; this stuff really works wonders!

Fordham University Launches Fashion Law

Elle Woods would certainly be thrilled to hear of this breaking news. Fordham Law School and the Fashion Law Institute, along with the CFDA’s president Diane von Furstenberg have launched the world’s first degree in Fashion Law. According to Fordham University, “Starting this fall, attorneys and non-lawyers alike will have an unprecedented opportunity to pursue master’s degrees in fashion law. These groundbreaking new programs mark the next step in the Fashion Law Institute’s mission to support the global fashion industry through innovative legal education” (“Fordham”).

Fordham’s groundbreaking program will include “classes in fashion financing, fashion modeling law, fashion licensing, and sustainability” (“Fordham”), allowing these lawyers to gain a vast range of knowledge on all subjects. Hopefully, the fashion world can only improve with the addition of bright, successful lawyers.

Personally, I am about to embark on my next four years at the University of Georgia studying Fashion Merchandising, and just maybe a degree in Fashion Law is also in my future. I always have aspired to be just like Elle Woods and live in the Big Apple…and I think my opportunity has surfaced!
