iconic ikat

29 Jun

We’re loving one of this summer’s trends: ikat {pronounced “ee-kot”) . I had no idea what ikat actually meant, but it didn’t really matter because it looks good and I like it!

However, after wanting to learn something new today, I learned ikat is a fabric in which the yarns have been tie-dyed before weaving.

We found some home and fashion finds so you, too, can have a little ikat in your life.

{giveaway} engagement bracelet by kathryn giarratano jewelry

14 Dec

Every bride wants something:


{let’s be honest, she wants these things all the time, whether she’s a bride or not}.

Well, we found the PERFECT thing that can be worn on her wrist that’s all of the above and more ~ Kathryn Giarratano’s Engagement Bracelet. It’s stunning and beautifully hand-made by Kathryn herself.

It can be her “something blue” on her wedding day, or throughout her engagement she can wear it as a reminder that she is a beautiful bride about to marry the man of her dreams and when she becomes a Mrs., she can still wear it {to accessorize an outfit} and remember the special time in her life before she said, “I do.”

Kathryn, owner and creator of Kathryn Giarratano Jewelry, is a Denver-based designer and Colorado native. After working as a fashion consultant for Saks Fifth Avenue she decided to follow her dream of creating a line of jewelry that is fun, funky and can be worn by women of all ages. Thus Kathryn Giarratano Jewlery was born and we’re grateful it was because she creates one-of-a-kind jewelry, including necklaces, bracelets and earrings, for women that we LOVE.

Kathryn has always had an amazing sense of style and the girl can accessorize! Even as a preggo mama {when sweat pants call out your name}, she always looks chic and adorable.

Her jewelry has been seen on celebs on E! News and the Grammy Awards. Her pieces are sold at specific retailers {including the fabulous Fleur de Lis} or you can e-mail her directly at for orders.

She creates distinct jewelry for brides on their wedding day, as well as coordinating pieces for the bridal party. Jodi {a Tutto Bella sister} worked with Kathryn to create her bridal jewelry, as well as bracelets for her bridesmaids. The pieces were beautiful {and made a great gift for the bridesmaids}.

Today, we’re so happy because Kathryn is kindly offering her beautiful Engagement Bracelet to a lucky Tutto Bella reader {$50 value plus shipping}.
