Happy Friday! So much great stuff going on this week, as we head into the homestretch of the rapidly approaching holiday season - once Halloween hits, Thanksgiving and the Holidays are just weeks away! So (lucky for you) I have two great tips on today's show to give you a jump-start on your gift lists.
The first is today's guest, designer Erica Weiner. Erica started designing jewelry a few years ago, but quickly built both a and name for herself in the Brooklyn fashion scene, and a charming storefront in Nolita. Now, her original creations, reinterpreted vintage findings, and restored antique collections are sold online and in boutiques worldwide. Her designs mingle modern style with historical artifacts in a fresh context - all of Erica's pieces, whether earrings, necklaces, or rings, have a rich sense of story. On today's show, Erica will talk about her boundless passion for vintage shopping, some recent finds at a London flea market, some of her own family heirlooms, and she'll reveal why anyone who's worked in costuming is inherently employable.
Plus, I have the preview of Target's upcoming collaboration line with Neiman Marcus designers, which will hit stores on Dec. 1st, and a ton of great music on the show! Today's playlist is dedicated to Maine, and to this week's BTR CMJ showcase artists. You'll hear tracks from rising stars like Kalyn Rock, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, A Severe Joy, Eternal Summers and more. So tune in as you work on your Halloween costume - Sew & Tell and BTR are here to inspire!
