Introducing www.ruedeemilybijoux.com



I have been very busy the past few months...with a charity fashion show, weekend trunk shows, winterizing my house and garden, and building (quite by accident) a rather extensive collection of handmade chokers and necklaces....it started because I began creating pieces for myself...

I think chokers with interesting colors, textures, and uniqueness are a more modern and sophisticated take on the traditional "thin" choker...so far the response has been fantastic! As we know...chokers have made a huge comeback...and are here to stay for awhile...


this weekend is the official launch of rue de emily bijoux with a new website....ruedeemilybijoux.com


 Hundreds of chokers and necklaces are available starting today on the rue de emily bijoux website...  click here to learn more.... here is just a sampling on my dining room table... and on displays in my garden,,,




I had the assistance of a few generous talents in getting this site done...Molly and Willow...are fans and models....a few friends of mine and myself also appear in a few pics wearing our pieces.... Jolie Dickson Photography and Chloe..an upcoming photographer took most of these pictures....thank you ladies...xoxo

Jolie captured Molly and myself doing a little "fashion prep" in the mirror...


 rue de emily jewelry is all about combining blacks, browns and neutrals with pops of color...we all wear so many basic colors...browns, blacks, creams...it is time to have a little fun with color and texture!!












you can dress your look..."up or down"...(couldn't resist the stairway pun)...


more rue de emily bijoux pieces....


Color becomes a fantastic accessory as you can see in the following look book....










I loved how my girlfriend Jackie described her appreciation of rue de emily bijoux...she embraces a pretty "classic with a twist" fashion aesthetic.... her comment "you can put on the most basic of outfits and when you add one of these chokers it takes it up a few notches"....really resonated with me as the thought behind their creation...mission accomplished!

here is a little secret for us "seasoned" ladies...putting color by your face is a mini-face lift...brightening and freshening your face!


Layering multiple pieces together takes up the cool factor...use what you own or add in some rue de emily bijoux...most everything works....together!





Layering two woven chokers together creates a cool vibe....





ruedeemilybijoux.com launched just in time for the holidays...a choker or necklace makes a thoughtful and great gift for the "fashionista" in your life! I have customers from 10-65...cool chicks who crave cool unique jewelry!






Please visit me on the website here...and follow me on Instagram  @ruedeemilybijoux  for future collections and updates....merci' mon ami!!
                                                             
Happy Shopping...I will be back soon with some Christmas postings and to wish you all Happy Holidays!

BOHO meets SOHO....


I have been one busy lady lately...which is why I have been radio silent... here on my "street".. this is the scoop....in every free moment I have been producing, organizing, designing, styling, scoring, directing, media relating, etc...for a very exciting charity event....coming this Thursday October 13th to the Style Shack in Highland Park...


Highland Park High School's Theatre Department is one of the best high school theatre training programs in the country...led by a few of the most dedicated and passionate teachers...the kind we all admire...and the productions they create are fabulous...and it is hard to believe that they come out of a high school!

Recently the Board of Education approved the building of the "shell" of a new black box theatre which provides the opportunity to configure productions in all kinds of unique ways...and once it is  outfitted with all the latest technology, lighting, materials, etc. it will be a fantastic educational and performance space for future generations...however the cost for outfitting it has to come from the community and the price tag is steep...$900,000...gulp!


So that is where I come in! My girlfriends at Style Shack suggested we do a fashion show with my ruedeemily bijoux new line of chokers and necklaces and their cool jewelry...We decided the Black Box Theatre fund was a great reason to get the creative juices flowing!


 We invited the high end fashion consignment clothing boutique Luxury Garage Sale too and Blue Mercury is doing the make-up for all the high school student models!  Floral Gardens is even helping with some "boho florals"!



 We wanted to involve the community in a great cause to support the high school. We have faculty and students from the theatre department helping with everything as well! Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students. They can be purchased in the Style Shack or get tickets online here. All ticket proceeds and a signficant percentage of all sales from all participating vendors will benefit the Black Box Theatre Fund.  You can also donate at www.completethebox.org Seating is limited so get your tickets ASAP!


I have designed over 400 unique suede, leather, ostrich, snake, woven, and lace chokers for this event...a sample of the collection is now on display at Style Shack with some of my other necklaces...but you can only begin to purchase them at the charity event..prices range from $30-$75. Many of my pieces and new jewelry from Style Shack will be featured in the fashion show....


a preview....

and now for a little visual photo "fashion show" of the chokers and necklaces from ruedeemily bijoux...




feel free to look and try on...hard to pick a favorite... 











 

 



I even had my son get into a picture...during a weekend photo shoot a few weeks ago...someday he'll thank me...when he gets over the embarrassment...lol...





Rachel from Luxury Garage Sale and I have been putting high style looks together for the last few days...you won't be disappointed...some faboo fashion ladies!! Rehearsals are underway with some beautiful models..inside and out...who are giving their time and runway flair!

 
 It is all coming together now for a great cause...it will be a fun fashion filled evening with great music in a great atmosphere...we are also auctioning the cool "BOHO meets SOHO" props that I created for the event...looking forward to seeing you locals there...

XO Emily
