Seasonably Chic Showcase Sneak Peek: Elizabeth’s Closet

Our Seasonably Chic Showcase event is almost here! From now until the event, I’ll be randomly selecting some of the vendors we’ll have at the show to give you a sneak peek of what you can find at the show! Today, I’m highlighting Elizabeth’s Closet.

Liz Cook, the owner, just sent out this email yesterday promoting that she will be at the event – and one lucky visitor to her booth will win a $25 gift certificate to Elizabeth’s Closet!

I have personally shopped at Elizabeth’s Closet several times, and I’ve purchased some of my favorite handbags and jewelry there. Like the amazing Marlaina Stone necklace I’m wearing in the picture below. It goes with everything and it’s such a conversation piece too (it beautifully mixes pearls, stones and chains – I love it!). Liz has great taste, so I can’t wait to see what all she’ll have at her booth this year!

Marlaina Stone at Elizabeth’s Closet

For my loyal Cincy Chic readers, Elizabeth’s Closet boutique should be pretty familiar, considering how many times we’ve written about them/featured them in events. For those of you who are new to Cincy Chic, you can find a good summary of the boutique here.

The Mt. Adams-based boutique is best known for its wide variety of jewelry from all over the world. It’s also known as the shopping escape above Daveed’s Restaurant (it’s located upstairs!). Delish food, beautiful bling… best… place… ever!

Funny story how Elizabeth’s Closet started, too. The owner, Liz, used to stash some of her shopping finds in the unused space above the restaurant. Occasionally, people would compliment her jewelry, and being the good business woman she is, she’d sell it right off her body, and go upstairs and put something else on. Then word got out that her jewelry was for sale, so she started buying multiples and using the upstairs for inventory. Then she made shopping trips to NYC, Las Vegas and even abroad to get more and more unique things for her inventory. Eventually, she made it into an official boutique upstairs! She has lots of fun events, and lots of great sales. She even does home parties if you want!

She has an email list too (you can get on it by going to her site and signing up).  And she just emailed about a new arrival that I’m completely in love with – the new collection by Marlaina Stone. Although the designers pieces can be pretty pricey at Nordstrom, running up to about $500, Elizabeth’s Closet offers the jewelry for much less. The pieces are really unique, and for those who love standing out, this collection is great for you. I’ve included a  photos of some of the pieces.  I really looooove the “earthy” one – so unique!

This piece runs for $295-$495 at Nordstrom, and just $150 at Elizabeth’s Closet!

This unique and “earthy” piece is just $125! (click to enlarge)

For me, earrings are a necessity and there were so many to choose from here. But, I found the pair that are a must-have… nothing like I’ve ever seen before! These Amber Teardrop Mesh Earrings are the perfect way to dress up those casual tee’s, or add a hint of glamor to your regular Saturday night. Either way you look at it, these are the one thing a girl needs to spice up her wardrobe!

Sweet Petit Desserts
This week is our “Sweets Issue” on Cincy Chic. So, as I edited the stories, it very difficult to not consume my weight in cupcakes. One story in particular this week is about Sweet Petit Desserts, and it interviews Owner Taren Kinebrew for the story behind her bite-size desserts – click here to read it! Made from the finest ingredients, the utmost care and a whole lot of love, Sweet Petit Desserts are luxurious bite sized treats bursting with flavor.

Their products are almost too cute to eat! Shown here is a display of some of their many desserts, check them out at the Seasonably Chic Showcase on Nov. 6th to find your favorite!
