Santa, I have been RELATIVELY good this year…
The other day I went to the West Village to shop at Accents (see, I told you guys I was going to get my 40% off) for Christmas gifts. It was freakin’ cold! I mean we’re in Texas. It’s strictly forbidden to be less than 65 degrees at night in December. Somehow the temperature was close to freezing levels. I had to park a block away from the boutique due to spot availability. What made it even worse is the fact I had to use the restroom so bad! It’s cold, I’m hungry, and I have to pee… not a good combo AT ALL.
As I’m walking to Accents I see the MOST BEAUTIFUL STORE EVER! It was the Kendra Scott store. I don’t know how to properly describe the store front apprence . I’m going to have to take picture next time I’m in West Village. Apart from the outside of the store being visually stunning the jewelry looked amazing.
I purchased some cute gifts in Accents and used the restroom in Gap (cuz you needed to know that). However, I still had the problem of being hungry and cold. As I’m walking back to my car I’m debating if I should check out the store. The cold will make you reconsider a lot of things. As I place my hand on my doorknob to leave Uptown I turn my neck to look at the store one more time. The mesmerizing store front, like a succubus’s hymn, summoned me in.
It felt like i was in Alice’s Return to Underland. It was freakin’ amazing. The clean lines, bright lights, and overall aesthetics of the store were simply astounding. The jewelry was showcased beautifully. Everything was located in glass cases that could easily be accessed by the customer. All the jewelry was color coded in its own special section. The layout of the store made it very easy on the eyes.
If you go to Kendra’s website it does NO JUSTICE to the actual product. EVERYTHING is so much bigger, brighter, and glamorous! The white Harlow statement piece (2) would make Betty Rubble’s necklace look like a series of chalk rocks laced with yarn. That necklace IS a statement.
All the items I featured are actual items I saw and fell deeply in love with.
However, on the site it does not feature a lot of stones I saw in the store. Kendra has a lot of jewelry that features Indian Arrow heads. I saw rings and necklaces based around it. I LOVE it, but I didn’t see any of that reflected online. There was also another necklace that featured tons of crystals and Geodes in an assortment of colors. That particular necklace cost a good penny, but the quality makes it a worthwhile purchase.
Typically, I would consider buying a painting for the cost of the last necklace I described, but when I think about it… that necklace was a masterpiece.
The jewelry is magnificent. I don’t know if I like her more because she’s based in Austin or not… but it sure does help =)
If you’re in Dallas you MUST check her work out in the West Village. I HIGHLY suggest you physically go into the store. Let me warn you, it’s going to be hard not to empty your pocketbook while inside.
