It's hard to believe that it's almost time to start buying copious amounts of crayons and glue sticks for your kids to head back to school. This summer has absolutely FLOWN by, and I have had the BEST time getting to know more of my neighbors here in Rocky River, Ohio. In the last year since I launched this little fine jewelry project, I've been introduced to so many fellow business owners in Cleveland, which has lead to great conversations and partnerships. It's fun to throw a party, but co-hosting a party with your new friends is even better!
Just in time for back-to-school, I'm super excited to announce two new collaborative events coming at the end of August.
CHICOLOGIE TRUNK SHOW
This summer I reached out to Pierce Morgan who knows more about luxury handbags than I may know about designer jewelry. His passion for vintage pieces and impeccable designs lead him to launch Chicologie, a curated collection of vintage luxury handbags and more.
Pierce is like your personal handbag concierge, offering restoration and unique sourcing for that perfect bag you've been trying to find. He also sources scarves and other accessories such as sunglasses, shoes, and clothing, with a focus on designer and fashion history. His background in Fashion Merchandising was the stepping off point to nurture his dream. Having authenticated hundreds and other luxury goods with a 100% success rate, he continues to expand and perfect methods he uses for Chicologie's distinct approach to luxury restoration.
Pierce will be curating a special collection of pieces to bring to our showroom for this one day event you absolutely do NOT want to miss! Preview the Chicologie collection HERE.

@the porterfi showroom
As soon as I laid eye on Haven, a stylish women's boutique WAY across town in Chagrin Falls, Ohio, I knew I had to introduce myself to Cori the owner. The store is airy, light, clean, and full of gorgeous fabrics lining the walls from her collections of clothing + accessories. Right in the heart of downtown Chagrin Falls, this shop is encourages you to be unapologetic in your effort to find, develop, or hone in on your personal style. To help you in doing so, they promise to always deliver a well-edited collection of items that are quality-driven, unique, and exciting.
Haven also offers a menu of styling services including alterations, closet editing and curation, and personalized styling. When I first walked in the door, I couldn't help but start mentally pairing dresses and tops with jewelry in my store that I knew would compliment it perfectly! I thought why not put together a curated selection of pieces to bring to the store for a pop-up event and help style women all weekend!
I am excited to meet new east side clients, and work with Cori for this two day event. Get to know Haven's collections HERE.
Friday & Saturday | August 25-26

EXTRA GOODIES FOR YOU...
The Sorellina collection has been in our showroom over the past year, garnering attention from edgy to classic ladies in Cleveland. Sadly we will not be carrying the line anymore, which means once a piece is gone, it's gone for good! The entire collection has been marked down to help make room for some newness in the fall.
This collection creates a harmonious dichotomy by seamlessly blending opposing ideas of feminine with masculine and vintage with modern. Stunning gemstones are wrapped in 18k gold, with an emphasis on unique shapes and pairings. Check out the collection HERE.
