So I have taken on a new adventure as an ambassador for a totally rad, innovative shopping app called House Account. If you are a shopper, which I assume most people who read this blog are, you will love it. The app allows you to shop hundreds of small boutiques located all over America from your phone (you can literally purchase items in the store directly from your phone). You can also enter a particular brand, find where it’s sold, see what boutiques carry it and what they have in stock. Another fab capability if you are traveling or in a new neighborhood, it will bring up the stores nearby and automatically show you their stream of photos. For the boutiques themselves it is a dream as it brings new clients and gives them the chance to keep track of their shoppers likes/dislikes/wants/needs/feedback.
As an ambassador for Southern California I will be working to sign on new stores and brands. If you have any you want to see, please message me! Download the app (it’s free) and have fun. I promise you will love it (your bank account might not love me though).
Who’s ready to ring in the New Year tonight?! Make sure to check out our New Year’s Eve Collection in the app for last minute party outfit ideas and entertaining necessities from our shops. #newyearseve #2015 #houseaccount #shopwithHA
SHOP BOSS: Meet Heather Henry of Heather Henry Design | From an early age, Arkansas-born Heather Hahn Henry learned to appreciate craftsmanship. Though a self-professed tomboy, she loved playing with her mother’s and grandmother’s fine jewelry collection, familiarizing herself with everything from jade and cloisonné to brooches and cameos. In 2006, Heather and her husband moved to Mexico City where she enrolled in metalsmith classes. Upon returning to Lubbock, Texas, Heather continued her training as a goldsmith’s apprentice and accepted a position as Jewelry Buyer for the local luxury boutique Malouf’s. She soon began to give her handmade pieces as gifts to friends, and not long after started to participate in trunk shows, compete in art festivals, and sell her line in fine retail stores. Today, Heather’s passionate hobby has become her treasured vocation with Heather Henry Design, a luxury lifestyle collection of fine jewelry, minaudières, and day bags inspired by the organic beauty of natural stones, the raw elegance of precious metals, and supple Italian leathers. We caught up with the designer to chat about the beginnings of her business, take a look at her favorite pieces, learn about life in Lubbock, and more.
