I genuinely feel like my life would be complete if Kendra Scott came to Orlando. Open a store right next to the new Lilly Pulitzer in The Mall at Millenia, and I’ll live in a tent in the middle of the complex– no shame. For the time being, though, the distance gives me a dual reason for visiting one of my best friends, Christina, during the summer at her parent’s house in Boca Raton, FL. Kendra Scott opened a gorgeous boutique earlier this spring at Mizner Park, and Ashley and I stopped by for a visit on our way to pick up our favorite little Cuban buttercup last weekend. I was eyeing wayyy too many pieces from the new Fall 2015 Mystic Bazaar collection, and I needed to seize the opportunity to see the goods first-hand.
Unfortunately for my credit card, the new Kendra Scott jewelry line is even more stunning in person, so I picked up just a few fall style essentials. The KS Boca team was so darn sweet, too, and welcomed us with Mystic Bazaar-colored cupcakes and koozies. Plus, we got to chatting about Kendra and her philanthropic mission; it’s absolutely wonderful to see such reputable modern brands silently using their name for the greater good. The same day we raided their store, the girls were preparing for a Shop for a Cause event, with a 20% of all proceeds benefiting Dress for Success. Needless to say, I was all-the-more obsessed and motivated to get others aboard the Kendra Scott jewelry train.
Excuse me while I touch all of your things, Kendra.
My favorite part about Kendra Scott jewelry? Every store has its own Color Bar, which is a truly unique experience that lets you make each piece your own. You can literally showcase your own personal style in the vibrant spectrum of stone colors and silhouttes of your choosing. Basically, if something you want isn’t in stock, you can design, create, and watch it be hand-crafted while you continue browsing– or do it online, of course.
Also, boys have no excuse to fight your obsession, either, since Kendra carries some of the most dapper gentlemen’s accessories on the market. Her cufflinks, which come in assorted stone colors and gold KS studs, are a guaranteed number-getter, and I definitely wouldn’t mind if I a dude had a set up like this in their living room. A+ bonus points for decor.
If anyone is hoping to win my affections over the next few weeks, please feel free to pick me up anything from the new Kendra Scott Mystic Bazaar collection. I’ll be quite appreciative.
This girl never turns down cupcakes, especially when they’re chocolate and have golden ball sprinkles on top. Yes, I take responsibility for the three that are missing. Also, I pocketed somewhere around five koozies.
So what did I pick up exactly? A pair of classic statement earrings and two gorgeous tassel necklaces, one of which featured here and the other to come shortly!
We ended up spending about two hours in the store– and eventually were pulled away by a girlfriend asking, “Umm, where are you? You realize we won’t get to the Keys until midnight, right? ” At least we left with Mystic Bazaar tassels and classic Kendra Scott gemstone in tow. Thank you so much again to the amazing Kendra Scott Mizner Park girls for hosting us in their lovely store. I can’t wait to visit again!
