Remember when I posted about Ellie Jay Jewels here? Well I've been keeping a little secret since then...after connecting with the owner of the Chicago-based brand in November I became even more obsessed with the company. As a lover and collector of fine jewelry the dainty designs spoke to my soul while the prices aligned with my frugal purse strings. Jami, who founded Ellie Jay, is as authentic as they come - I respected her non-pushy approach to selling and even though I'd only known her for a few hours she felt like someone I'd known forever. It didn't take me long to tell her my secret pipe dream of working with a small jewelry company. I bashfully asked if she would ever have a need for a Texas-based rep for Ellie Jay and her enthusiastic answer of, "OMG are you kidding me, does this mean you want to do it?!" was all I needed to sign on to my latest project. (read more to get all the event details!)
I’ve been coordinating the logistics of joining the Ellie Jay team for months and now that the holidays are behind us and 2015 is all fresh and new, I’m officially becoming a sales rep! Honestly, this is such a passion project for me that it’s not about making money but being able to stand beside a brand with design, quality, and prices I think are at the best level. I’m so freaking excited to start promoting the company and to help people find perfect baubles for themselves and/or gifting!
You’ll definitely be seeing more Ellie Jay jewels on the blog (aside from the rings I already wear 24/7) but before that starts, Jami and I wanted to invite anyone and everyone in the Dallas area to a trunk show next Wednesday! I really hope that some of you local lovelies are able to make it – I’d love to introduce you to the brand I love so much in person (:
Here are all the details you need to know:
.Place: Mi Golondrina Showroom (6445 Cedar Springs, #203). Right across from Wisteria, near Love Field Airport.
.Date & Time: Wednesday, February 4th from 1:00pm – 7:00pm (that’s not a typo – we are doing an all-day affair to accommodate busy schedules in hopes that you can drop by at some point!)
.Shop: Jami is bringing stacksonstackonstacks of Ellie Jay. That means solid 14k gold and diamond designs that range from sweet and dainty to edgy and bold. If you find something you love, you get to take it home with you! And if you need to order a specific size or color we take care of all orders that day.
.Enjoy: Sips and snacks. No party is complete with out them – according to us.
.Bring: Feel free to bring your friends, send your significant other, and send along the invite to anyone you think would be interested. The more the merrier!
.RSVP: Tell us if you can stop by! Accept the invite here.
I’m so excited about this and hope some of you will be able to make it!!
Don’t live close to Dallas? That makes us sad…but if there’s something on the Ellie Jay website you love you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can help you place an order! We will also be sharing snaps from the event so make sure you follow us on Instagram @apieceoftoast so you can feel like you’re there.
P.S. A huge thank you to Cristina of Mi Golondrina for letting us borrow her beautiful showroom space for the event!!
