Empire State of Mind

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

It seems like a general consensus that time flies when you’re having fun, but it seems to fly even faster in the fashion industry.  Seriously, where does it go?!

Even after 15 years, trade shows still seem to not only sneak up on us, but serve as a reminder just how quickly things are moving.  It was time for Ingrid to go back to New York again last week to visit our showroom and NYNOW – one of the biggest home, lifestyle and gift shows around.

With our Holiday 2014 launch just around the corner {we can’t wait to share what’s new!} and Spring 2015 on the horizon, we wanted to take a moment between design meetings to share a couple of fun snapshots from Ingrid’s trip.

Here’s to some very exciting things to come!

Meet Your Maker

Friday, July 18th, 2014

If you’ve ever shopped with us at Oxford Hall, you may have noticed that our back studio is constantly buzzing – whether we’re making a custom piece for a customer stopping by on their vacation, special sets for a bride and her wedding party, or designing the upcoming collection. Ever since the viv&ingrid jewelry line was born over 15 years ago, it’s been designed and made right here in sunny Berkeley, California.

So it probably goes without saying that we’re big proponents of shopping local, which is why we’re more than excited to be supporting the David Brower Center’s upcoming Meet Your Maker event! This Saturday, July 19 from Noon to 6:00 pm, the event will feature an array of shopping from local businesses, food trucks, musicians and more. You can also attend workshops and presentations all about local love.

You won’t want to miss this event, so be sure to stop by, then take the short walk up to Oxford Street and visit us! We have the Spring/Summer 2014 line out {including some special sale goodies and a teeny sneaky peek at Fall 2014} and as always, our favorite local lines like Maison Bouche chocolates, Twig & Fig cards, Linea Carta baby accessories, Floss Gloss polish, L’Aromatica perfume and much more are in store now.

And as a special offer just for those of you visiting us here on the blog and attending the event, we’re giving you 20% off viv&ingrid jewelry on Saturday only! We hope to see you then!
