As some of you may [or may not] know, I recently got engaged to the love of my life, Jack Cali on Valentine’s Day on top of a hill in Los Angeles. He proposed with a beautiful ring by Simon G. at Orange Hill Restaurant right after sunset.
I wanted to give y’all the scoop, obviously because it’s great news! But also because my new designs will be signed, “Cristy Cali”. Now I have a last name that not only can you spell, but you can also pronounce. Soon, I’ll have a second website name – http://www.CristyCali.com – that will redirect you to http://www.CristysCollection.com, so both will work and take you to the same place.
For those of you who care to know, Jack and I plan on having a very, very small and intimate wedding on the beach in Key West before the end of the year. We’ve received many blessings and are very thankful for everyone’s kind words and best wishes. This has been a great year so far, and look forward to more to come!
Slowly but surely, I have been noticing a large fan-gain on my fan page and increase in website sales. My retailers have also been telling me that people have been going to their shops specifically looking for my jewelry. It’s nice to see when hard work is paying off – for anyone in any industry or any type of work. Right now I am working on new designs for the Fall and I’m also trying to catch up on all my sold out designs.
I wanted to give y’all a heads up that I will have a table at this year’s Fashion Week New Orleans‘ Style Lounge. All of my designs will be on special 10%-30% off. On the last day of the show I will also be in a special bridal section. I will be also be a featured blogger and be blogging about Fashion Week during the show.
I also wanted to say thanks to everyone that has been a true fan and follower of Cristy’s Collection. I released my new brand just a few months ago and it’s grown so quickly… I’m so thankful and honored to be a designer in your jewelry box. As of now you can find my jewelry at the following retailers or on my website:
Lola Nola – New Orleans
Treasure Island – Canal Place
Lowe’s Jeweler’s – Mandeville
Detour – Slidell
House of Orleans – Baton Rouge
