Any store that’s chic enough to convince people to buy a box, clearly has something going for them! Not to say Macy’s boxes aren’t nice or anything…
Tuesday night I was lucky enough to get invited to a blogger/media event appropriately titled “Cocktails at Tiffany’s”. It was held at the Tiffany’s store downtown Cincinnati. So naturally I walked down to the store front in a little black dress, sunglasses, and pearls channeling my inner Audrey with breakfast in hand. Or, at least that’s how imagined it. On a more realistic note, I drove my car, parked it in a parking garage (validated, of course), wore skinny black pants, contacts, and carried a cocktail. Close enough. Right dah-ling?
(please forgive the poor photo taking…I promise I’m getting a new camera soon)
As the event unfolded I was able to drool over, not on (that’s way too expensive) the endless array of diamonds and Tiffany blue accessories. With the holidays peaking around the corner what girl couldn’t use a little something blue? Instead of selling your right arm for a diamond ring I would opt for keeping the essential body part while looking for a Tiffany’s item that’s just as much chic as it is affordable. Introducing two of my favorite pieces of the night Tiffany Twist Bow Ring at $250 or the Bow Pendant at $125. Yep, their as delightful as they seem!
However, if I’m going to buy something at Tiffany’s I want people to know I bought something at Tiffany’s which might explain why my new blue box will now be featured on my coffee table. So here’s to letting it be known that your friend Tiffany isn’t a bleach blond bimbo but a stylish Tiffany Era “T & Co.” bar pendant at the fairly reasonable $150. Did I mention my birthday’s around the corner?
Cincinnati’s Tiffany & Co. recently renewed their contract to keep Tiffany’s in it’s iconic downtown location, and even though I wasn’t quite Holly Golightly the validation by the Tiffany staff (literally, free parking) made me feel as if I was. Having breakfast at Tiffany’s might of been the Audrey way, but having cocktails (trust me) wasn’t too shabby either!
