Emilee Anne. What a wonderful, talented girl. If there is someone I constantly find inspiring, she is the girl. I met Emilee, in 2010, on an elevator at the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Debutante Ball. I stopped her to ask who designed her beautiful evening gown. Her response? “Me.” Hold the elevator please.
I discovered at the time she was attending Parsons School of Design in New York and as I was about to head that way for Fashion Week I invited her to cover some fashion shows for my blog. The next summer she returned to Dallas and interned for my company during the Little Black Dress Experiment Tours America. I love how she styled her dress in a very Jackie O style.

The next break, when she returned to Dallas I hired her to do the artwork for my forthcoming book on the 2009 Little Black Dress Experiment. Here is a sample of one of the sketches she did.
In 2012 I was fortunate to be able to go to New York to see her showcase when she graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City. Emilee was recruited straight out of school to design jewelry for Marc Jacobs in his SoHo studio. She then she went on to work for Kate Spade while siemaltaneously managing her personal style blog. Neiman Marcus selected her as the winner of their “Blogger on the Cusp” collection, which led to partnerships with the likes of Bloomingdales, Refinery29, H&M, AOL Lifestyle, Swedish Hasbeens, Links of London, Piperlime, Bobbi Brown and The Cambridge Satchel Company.
Emilee has an incredible collection of vintage fashion and jewelry pieces. If you love to shop vintage treasures, check out her “Los Angeles Vintage Shopping Guide here:
Emilee recently relocated to San Francisco, where she has been busy setting up her new home. I love this picture of her new desk set up. It makes you want to organize and restyle your desk, right?
If you are eyeing the fabulous jewelry she has displayed on her desk, you are in luck. This past week Emilee, in partnership with her lovely mom Randee, launched her new Vintage Jewelry company, Emilee Anne. Visit her website here to snap up some fabulous baubles for your next holiday party.
