Happy Sunday! Don’t fret – it’s a short week. :-p

Tonight, I’m spotlighting local South Florida jewelry designer, Idalia Baudo.

Photo Nov 11, 10 01 32 AM

I recently came across her line and fell in love with it. It’s beautiful! It’s also Idalia’s passion to design!

Photo Nov 11, 10 26 19 AM

And you can tell…

Photo Nov 11, 11 20 01 AM

…because her pieces are exquisitely crafted. Classic and timeless – this is the type of jewelry you can wear for decades (holiday gift, anyone?!). Her line is also reasonably priced. Yep, double awesome.

Photo Nov 11, 11 19 35 AM

She plays around with funky materials, like mesh, and combines them with gold and silver. Check out more here.

Photo Nov 11, 11 20 02 AM

Idalia started designing jewelry for her friends and family. Today, it’s blown up to be a full time business for her and her husband. How amazing is that?!

Confession: Interviewing fashion designers can be super intimidating, especially when they’re one of the industry’s hottest names and their designs are worn by celebrities like Alexa Chung, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Emmy Rossum, Sarah Jessica Parker… and yes, even the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

… and featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Glamour, W, Nylon, Marie Claire and InStyle magazines.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

In case you’re wondering how I felt walking into this interview… I was a little nervous. Ok, more like super nervous.

Meet fashion designer Rebecca Taylor. A New Zealander turned New Yorker. A go-getter. Big dreamer. Mother. And an unbelievably sweet and humble woman, despite being so successful in such a competitive industry.

I caught up with Taylor at Saks Fifth Avenue’s runway show for the Junior League of Boca Raton to learn more about her career, what lessons she learned along the way (hint: hard work) and what’s inspired her most recent collection…

Photo Nov 06, 11 52 41 AM

Me: When did you know you wanted to be a designer? Did you have an ah-hah moment? 

Taylor: It was later in life for me; around the time I was 21. Growing up in New Zealand, I didn’t have access to television shows like “Project Runway” or have social media to look up designers. Most women went to school to be secretaries, teachers or nurses. It wasn’t until I met a woman who taught me how to make patterns. She asked, “Have you thought about going to design school?” and I was like, “No, I haven’t…” I remember that exact moment thinking, “This is what I want to do.” I went home and told my parents and they were happy. They said, “Thank God! We found something for her!” I guess I was a bit of a worry for them!

Photo Nov 06, 11 54 18 AM

Photo Nov 06, 12 18 17 PM

[Side note: Taylor’s unique aesthetic has been shaped by her mother, a talented seamstress who sewed children’s clothing by hand, as well as be a part of Taylor’s journey as a designer.]

Photo Nov 06, 12 16 04 PM

Me: I’m sure your mom was happy!

Taylor: Yes, she was. She was very involved in the business in the beginning…

Photo Nov 06, 12 14 59 PM

Me: As a young woman, what did you learn working in the fashion industry?

[Side note: Taylor arrived to NYC as a young woman with $600 and with blind optimism. Today, her brand is a multi-million dollar business…] 

Taylor: The fashion industry was hard. It’s even harder today. The market has become saturated with designers and large brands who sell their products at a very reasonable price. If anything, I’ve come to learn that the fashion industry has a short memory span. You can have a terrible season but you can also turn it around quickly. That’s something great. One of the beauties of my job is that I get to reinvent myself every couple of weeks.

Photo Nov 06, 12 20 38 PM

Photo Nov 06, 12 21 12 PM

Me: What was it like when you first went out on your own and launched your line? Was it scary?

Taylor: I was young so I didn’t really think about how scary it was. I took things day by day, one step at a time. I never knew exactly where I was headed or where I would end up, I just knew it felt right. I knew what I had to do. It was organic for me.

Photo Nov 06, 12 23 54 PM

Photo Nov 06, 12 23 20 PM

Me: How did you first start to get recognition for your designs? 

Taylor: Early on, I was nominated for the CFDA Perry Ellis Award for Emerging New Talent. That was a very exciting time for me…

Me: What’s been your proudest moment so far? 

Taylor: I borrowed some money from my father to start the company. My proudest moment in my career was when I paid him back.

[Ok, around this point in the interview – I’m like in love with how sweet Rebecca Taylor is!]

Photo Nov 06, 12 25 40 PM

Me: New Zealand has inspired a lot of your designs. Do you find inspiration being based in NYC?

Taylor: Living in NYC is good for the fashion industry. It’s extremely fast-paced. You’re constantly making quick decisions and reinventing yourself, which works for fashion. There’s culture, different people around you, new things – it’s pretty inspiring.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

Me: What’s the inspiration behind your most current collection? What’s the story?

[Side note: Taylor loves reading! She draws inspiration from characters in books and attaches a “story” to each collection.] 

Taylor: It was inspired by a book I read about a place where artists, intellectuals, free thinkers would gather in the early 1900’s. One of the artists would draw these beautiful botanical, floral scenes… the colors she used were also very inspiring. That was the catalyst to this collection… 

Photo Nov 06, 12 27 30 PM

Me: Who would you love to dress that you haven’t? 

Taylor: Twiggy! She’s so beautiful. She’s aged so gracefully… 

Me: What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Taylor: My brother always says, “You’re here for a good time. Not a long time…” I believe it’s important to enjoy each and every moment.

Lastly, what are currently reading? 

Taylor: I just started Purity” by Jonathan Frazen. I recently finished “The Marriage of Opposites” by Alice Hoffman. 

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

Taylor’s designs are carried in boutiques and high-end department stores, like Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton, all over the world, as well as in eight standalone Rebecca Taylor boutiques and their website, RebeccaTaylor.com.

Lately, I’ve been hanging out at like the coolest spot in South Florida. It’s a mixed-use space located in the heart of funky, artsy Lake Worth, Florida that’s part workspace for creatives, part venue space and coffee bar. It’s super inspiring to work out of and full of amazing entrepreneurs who do everything from wedding planning to food styling to photography. You can read more about the concept here!

This little romper from American Eagle rocks! Hello #AEOStyle! It’s quickly becoming my favorite – and a piece that I definitely plan on wearing throughout the winter months here in Florida. I love it because it’s easy to wear and goes with everything in my closet right now!

For this outfit, I threw on a pair of fringe heels and styled it with a denim jacket and floppy hat to make it causal. You can also wear it with tall slouchy boots, a heavier jacket and a cute crossbody bag, but I prefer sandals – especially since it’s still so warm here in Florida!

SWEATER: (c/o) Saks Fifth Avenue/JEANS: (c/o) Saks Fifth Avenue/HEELS: Nordstrom/CLUTCH: Similar here

Let’s be real – Find the perfect sweater to wear in the fall/winter months in Florida is not easy. It’s cooled down from 95 degrees to like 89 in the past month. So the thought of wearing a chunky knit makes absolutely no sense right now (unless you’re like me and turn down your AC to like 60 degree every night). The ONLY time a Floridian will wear a sweater is when it’s 55. And that’s more than a month away…

To keep warm on somewhat cool nights or when I go to work or a place like the movies, I turn to lightweight cardigans and sweaters.

Throw rhinestones into the mix and it’s a done deal.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

This sweater, from Alice + Olivia via Saks Fifth Avenue Boca Raton, blends the best of both worlds. It’s fairly lightweight and embellished with lots and lots of sparkles – instantly making it totes adorbs.

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

I know, I know… it’s a bit of splurge. But you can totally wear it with ripped jeans (as pictured), a black midi skirt (tucked in) or even with chunky army green shorts (with black flats) so it’s worth the investment. Plus, it’s a piece that will take you into the holidays and stay in your closet for many, many seasons to come!

Hope everyone’s having a great week so far… Happy Monday!

Last month, Chelsae Anne and I flew out to Boston to work with Marshalls on some videos for Instagram and to shoot a couple looks for the blog!

Talk about an amazing opportunity!

Photo Sep 09, 4 15 34 PM

The night before we left, I pulled an all nighter to get my work done (I do social media consulting on the side) so I could take the rest of the week off for the project and for Fashion Week in NYC. I was beyond exhausted but it was so worth it because the second we arrived in Boston, we hit the ground running!

Photo Sep 09, 4 30 39 PM

We started with fittings at TJX headquarters outside of Boston. This literally took all day because I’m so petite and nothing ever fits my body. Fortunately, their seamstress did an amazing job and each piece came out perfect…

Photo Sep 09, 6 25 31 PM

[Side note: I can’t reiterate this enough – having a good tailor is so worth it! Being petite, most things aren’t made for my body. It’s either too big or too small. If you’re like me and have a hard time finding clothing that fits, I highly recommend finding a good tailor near you. Not only can they customize your clothing to what you want, but they can help you identify what works best for your body type too.]

We woke up super early on Day 2 to shoot three videos + a couple looks for the blog. Click here to see one of the videos.
