I am constantly searching for dresses, skirts, and tops that complement my designs. this past spring, when searching for a dress for a friend's birthday party, I came across the amazing designs of "Project Runway" alum Kara Janx. It was love at first sight on saks.com. I wore the dress with my signature necklace to the Ace Hotel and received more compliments than I can count.

The fun didn't end there...about two weeks later I got the opportunity to meet Kara at a personal appearance at Bloomingdales! Not only is a fabulous designer, but she is also an incredibly down-to-earth and genuine woman. It was such a thrill getting to meet her and I picked up some more designs to pair with my pieces (photos to come in the future). check out her designs at www.karajanx.com
